is it OK to stack N.O. with a thermogenic pre-workout?

    007, from what I understand, taking a N.O.-boosting supplement in the same time frame as caffeine is counterproductive. Caffeine is a vaso-constrictor (tends to constrict blood vessels) while nitric oxide is a vaso-dilator (tends to relax and enlarge blood vessels). So, if you take Hydroxycut, you may not get any benefit from the N.O.- booster.

    Why are you even taking Nitrix in the first place? What benefits do you hope to see outside of the "pump" that may or may not be happening?
