What You Should Know
White Blood is an interesting name for a nitric oxide supplement, but Controlled Labs is known for unique product names and interesting marketing descriptions. What Controlled Labs is not known for is effective supplement formulations. Typically the ingredient list offers nothing new or exciting and the ingredients often lack clinical support. Is White Blood different from other Controlled Labs products?
List of Ingredients
eNO + Anti-Oxide Complex: Arginine Ethyl Ester Di-HCL, Ornithine Ethyl Ester Di-HCL, L-Taurine, K-R-ALA, Coenzyme Q10, Lutein, Folic Acid, Selenium, Zeaxanthin, Cryptoxanthin, Alpha-Carotene.
Arginine Ethyl Ester Di-HCL is commonly included in bodybuilding supplements as a nitric oxide builder. The ingredient is trusted in the bodybuilding community to the point that it’s expected in NO supplements. Ornithine Ethyl Ester Di-HCL works hand in hand with Arginine in White Blood to increase the effects of the Arginine. This is a unique ingredient and could give White Blood a bit of an edge over the competition.
L-Taurine is naturally synthesized from cysteine and methionine in the body. Because of this it is not considered an essential amino acid. However, researchers are taking a closer look at Taurine because it could lower bad cholesterol levels and increase good cholesterol levels in the body. The antioxidant properties make it a good addition to the White Blood supplement. In regards to specific effects beneficial for the bodybuilder, we could find none. K-R-ALA is R-Lipoic Acid. The R depicts the fact that this form of lipoic acid is natural. K-R-ALA may increase glutathione levels. Glutathione may help to increase muscle mass and improve overall health.
Zeaxanthin and Lutein are associated with eye health. We could not find one reason for these ingredients to be used in a bodybuilding supplement like White Blood. Cryptoxanthin is another ingredient with no beneficial effects for the bodybuilder unless it is included to help relieve oxidative stress associated with muscle building workouts.
White Blood sells for $54.99 from Controlled Labs but it is available from other websites for as little as $33.99. Controlled Labs has a reputation for selling products at a marked up price compared to trusted vitamin shops online.
- Arginine and Ornithine are good ingredients for NO production.
- Controlled Labs sells the product for more than third-party websites.
- There are ingredients that have no impact on bodybuilding.
White Blood by Controlled Labs may be an effective No supplement, but only two ingredients can be credited with this effect. The rest of the ingredients are iffy at best with a few like Lutein and Zeaxanthin having everything to do with eye health and nothing to do with muscle growth or nitric oxide. Dieters will see no additional weight loss from taking this supplement.
