NOXygen is a N.O. bullshit PWO amplifier.
They removed all the fluff to bring you just the pump.
In fact, this N.O.-spiking “pre-workout accelerator” is designed to be added to your existing PWO, even though it probably could still work on its own.
Let’s take an objective look at NOXygen’s simple formulation and see if there’s anything to its N.O.-additive strategy.
One look at NOXygen and most bros might just put it back in the shelf cause it looks so scrawny. But if you take a second closer look, you just might want to buy it in bulk. What it lacks in ingredients they make up for with their premium choices, fat dosages, and laser-focus on pumping you up. Formula notes:
- Stimulant-free: No caffeine here buddy. Definitely marketed towards those who hate “the crash.”
- Just 3 key ingredients: A PWO that relies solely on what little it has without sacrificing quality.
- For stacking: Before you buy, be clear that it’s designed to be an additive to other PWOs.

Purus Labs’ NOXYgen is a simple PWO additive formula that packs a lotta punch to your stack.
Let’s take a closer look at NOXygen’s three main ingredients:
A premium concentrated glycerine that is designed for stability. Helps blood flow to muscle tissues for greater stamina and endurance, and may help with hydration too.
Does it still count as a “proprietary blend” when there’s only two ingredients? We’ll give NOXygen a pass on our usual prop blend criticism, because the NO3-TMG blend is so damn smart:
- Beet Root Extract: Beet root supplies betaine that relaxes blood vessels & promotes better blood flow to muscles. Here it’s standardized to betaine nitrate, which converts to nitrite and then nitric oxide. That’s right, bros: N.O.
- Nitratene™: Patented bonded nitrate increases N.O. production & muscle volume. Nitrate may also improve oxygen utilization efficiency, which in theory would help endurance & physical performance.
There’s a 65 mg pop of sodium in NOXygen too, to help bros to stay hydrated during intense workouts.
When you look at NOXygen you might end up searching for more. But it’s the truth: NOXygen really only has 3 main ingredients… but they are top notch.
NOXygen could work as a standalone PWO. When simple stacks are done right, they can pack a huge punch.
BUT, Purus Labs strongly encourages using NOXygen as an additive. In other words, you dump a scoop of NOXygen into your PWO protein shake or whatever. As demonstrated on their label:
It’s supposed to work in concert with other PWOs, and we can see why: NOXygen is so damn effective at boosting circulation to muscle tissues, that means any nutrients you take with it are going to be delivered more quickly & completely to those hard-working muscles.
So Bros who cringe at NOXygen’s lack of creatine & caffeine have the thumbs-up to stack it up with other more stimulant-driven PWOs. That’s kind of the whole idea.
We like the ingredient quality we see in NOXygen, too.
HydroMax is a premium choice for glycerol since it contains up to 6 times glycerol than old school solutions.
The 1.5 g HydroMax dosage is more than enough in NOXygen, and sort of proves it’s intended as a stackable supplement.
According to the manufacturer, HydroMax is made to be formulated in a 1:1 ratio with other active PWOs. NOXygen’s 1.5 g dose of HydroMax means you still got 750 mg left to play with, for whatever PWO you stack up next.
We really like NOXygen’s NO3-TMG. Beetroot supplies a great PWO compound, Betaine. And here, Beet Root is also standardized to a specific nitric-oxide precursor: Nitrate. Nitratene then supplies more nitrate in a different form: Bonded nitrate.
What we end up with is a synergistic stack: Direct N.O. boosters, absorption enhancers (from beetroot), and 2 different forms of N.O. precursor nitrates. True to the NOXygen name, this sounds like a potent nitric-oxide formula.
And in NOXygen, that synergy is made even better with its premium branded ingredients: Nitratene and HydroMax are branded/patented, while the beetroot shows some standardized quality.
NOXygen has 740 mg of this NO3-TMG blend, and we think that’s more than enough to be effective in one serving.
It definitely gives you the “pump” during and well after lifting, while also providing you with great training endurance via better blood circulation & muscle oxygenation. Or, in NOXygen’s own words:
NOXygen looks so effective, we think it will bring you any and all benefits for workout intensity & anabolic results that are tied to peak muscle circulation.
Thanks to its circulation-boosting and absorption-enhancing properties, NOXygen will also “amplify” the effects of any PWOs you take with it.
Who Takes It?
It’s marketed highly for those who don’t tolerate stimulants such as caffeine very well and for long time PWO users. Those Bros who have a good PWO supplement regimen already might consider NOXygen as an additive to help enhance everything else they are taking.
Any Side Effects?
We’re not sure about this. There don’t seem to be too many reports of adverse events with NOXygen. The ingredient choices, presented in premium branded forms, should be nicely tolerable.
But, NOXygen seems so effective at boosting N.O., we tend to think there must be some side effects too. Plus, there’s this big-ass warning on the NOXygen label to worry about:
- Lean. Big dosages of few ingredients, not watered-down nonsense.
- Top-Notch. Few ingredients means going premium is not a problem.
- Affordable. A PWO that works without making your wallet cry.
- No BS. Thanks for not using pointless artificial colors, NOXygen.
- A bit weak. Unless they stack, old-school bros might find it lacking.
- Gooey. Reportedly it doesn’t mix that well due to gloppy glycerine.

Final Word on NOXygen
NOXygen is not really intended as a standalone pre-workout formula. But it is a lean, mean, PWO amplifying machine. Use it the right way: Combine it with one or more solid PWO supplements. With NOXygen’s targeted N.O. blood flow benefits, it can help enhance your performance AND the performance of any other PWO formulas you’re taking.
