As from 17 years of age it is generally acceptable to start taking supplements and in my opinion not unnatural substances. I am not sure which product you will be taking however, Nitrox products usually increase the blood flow to the muscles to carry more nutrients thereto for growth.
If the product also contains arginine - it is known to increase Nitic Oxide (NO) which increases the blood flow to the working muscle. The increased nutrients like the amino acids usually have a positive growth effect on the muscles and natural hGH production.
Insulin is known to be a strong stimulator of the NO pathway, therefore you can consume a high GI carb drink e.g. powerade directly after training to stimulate an insulin response – if you then also take your liquid meal (protein & carbs) you will optimize the growth effect as well as recover at a better rate to again train better the following day.
