Those who work-out consistently and those who enjoy bodybuilding know that intensive training involves more than just showing up at the gym. Taking on the task of sculpting your body entails scheduling, asking for assistance, the correct diet, understanding the basic physiology of the body, and adding supplements. Let’s discuss the ins and outs of taking on this type of exercise routine.
Worldwide, men are discovering the benefits and effectiveness of D-Pol for boosting testosterone and increasing strength and endurance. D-Pol’s ingredients are:
- 3.12 G D-Aspartic Acid
- 480 MG Nitratene
- 4,000 IU Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
- 2 MG Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
- 400 MCG Vitamin B9 (Folate)
- 6 MCG Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)
- 130 MG Sodium
D-Aspartic Acid is a testosterone booster, and “Nitratene” is an ingredient patented by Purus Labs which is meant to increase nitric oxide levels. This increase can widen blood vessels and result in improved blood flow.
Ingredients Under the Microscope
1. D-Aspartic Acid (D-AA)
D-AA is an amino acid that controls testosterone synthesis, which means producing chemical compounds from the reaction of similar materials to one another. D-AA may act on the stimulatory receptor NMDA. It may aid in male fertility and increases testosterone temporarily. It works in the central brain and releases follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and growth hormone. It also boosts testosterone by removing testosterone synthesis. It may also have a small stimulatory effect.
Nitratine is a form of sodium nitrate developed by Purus Labs. Nitrates are potent vasodilators, meaning they improve blood flow. They also enhance nitric oxide levels which support cardiovascular health by protecting endothelial (the inner lining of blood vessels) dysfunction and lowering blood pressure. It also reduces the oxygen cost of exercise and increases energy efficiency. It takes at least 45 minutes for nitrates to activate in the body.
3. Vitamin D3
Also known as cholecalciferol, this vitamin is used to prevent and treat vitamin D deficiency. It is a “secosteroid” or a steroid molecule with an open ring.
4. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
Vitamin B6, like all of the eight B vitamins, help convert food into fuel, meaning the production of energy. Pyridoxine also assists the body in metabolizing fats and proteins.
5. Vitamin B9 (Folate)
Folate is one of the B vitamins and helps the body make DNA and other genetic material. It is also necessary for cells to divide.
6. Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)
This vitamin helps maintain healthy nerve cells. It also aids in the generation of DNA and RNAm the body’s genetic building blocks.
Sodium is the regulator of the water in the body. Several important body functions are also dependent upon the transmission of sodium into and out of individual cells.

D-Pol is what is known as a Dual Phasic Luteinizing Hormone-Free Testosterone Elevator, as well as a Nitric Oxide Potentiator. Emerging research supports the testosterone increase and the nitric oxide production that follows D-Pol consumption.
According to research, a regimen of D-Pol supplements can:
- raise luteinizing hormone (LH) levels 33%
- increase free testosterone levels 42%
- boost adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels 23%
- lift oxidative phosphorylation ratio (oxygen sparing) 19%
These increases result in:
- improved strength
- lean muscle building (due to free testosterone levels)
- higher endurance (due to mitochondrial efficiency and improved oxygen levels due to enhanced blood flow)
- superior nutrient delivery (due to increased and sustained vasodilation)
- improved sexual performance
How to Use D-Pol
Users should consume the three tablets along with the meal of their choice every day. The highest benefit will result if the user takes the supplement along with the meal consumed before his workout. The supplement comes in two forms, powder, and a tablet. Instructions include the caveat that user’s dosage correlates to a daily 2,000 calorie diet.
Purus Labs advises its D-Pol users to add a good whey protein dosage after their workouts in addition to using D-Pol. Adding further supplements that are compatible with one another to your health plan is known as stacking. D-Pol also stacks well with:
- Condense – a before-workout supplement to increase muscle performance, blood flow, endurance, and mental focus
- Total War – also a pre-workout stimulant
- AminOD – builds amino acids, the building blocks of the body
- Amino-Tone + Energy – branched chain amino acids that increase protein synthesis, muscle recovery, and endurance
- Theatrim – a thermogenic weight-loss product that increases the body’s temperature and metabolism and burns calories
- Skald: Oxydynamic Fat Scorcher – Powder – another thermogenic weight-loss formula
- Muscle Marinade – aids nutrient delivery and uptake
Athletes all over the Internet are praising the benefits of using D-Pol. Their stories include these:
One 39-year-old user, who was already a self-proclaimed “gym rat,” says he noticed his sex drive had lowered. He also felt his exercise plan was not working as well for him as it had in the past. He decided his testosterone levels were probably the cause of both his problems.
He began to take three tablets before his pre-workout meal, along with NO3Drive, a nitric oxide enhancer, to increase absorption. Within the week, he felt an upswing in his libido, for which he felt nothing but gratitude. Later in the week, he noticed that he could pick up more repetitions and could slow them down quite a bit.
He adds that he experienced some moodiness, but was not able to discern whether the moods were due to life events or the supplement. He called it getting more in touch with his feelings.
Taking everything into account, at least for this gym rat, the pros outweighed the one cons.
Purus Labs Fan
Another user said he tried D-Pol for the first time because of the positive reviews he read online. After using the product, he knew review-writers were exactly right. He continued by saying his strength had increased dramatically allowing him to lift weights that he never had before. His improvements also solidified his respect for Purus Labs, which was living up to its hype.
This weight-lifter stacked his D-Pol with AI (Arimistane), an estrogen-blocker that reduces the estrogen in the body and builds optimal muscle and assists in the loss of fat.
D-Pol actualized all the claims made by Purus Labs for this user, including increased virility. His only side effect was a few breakouts around his hairline and brows. They vanished quickly, however. He suffered from headaches for which he already had a predisposition.
New to the Scene
A first-time user of D-Pol expressed his enthusiasm for the product and said by week two he saw a roughly 10% increase in strength on all his lifts. He was pleased with the price of the supplement and experienced no side-effects, although he also stated that he rarely experienced side-effects from any supplements he has taken.
This weight-lifter has been using D-Pol for two years. He backed up Purus Labs’ findings by sharing that blood tests should show an increase in testosterone levels by the 12th day of taking the supplement.
Weight Lifters and Supplements
Everyone knows that taking supplements is an investment. Bodybuilders particularly, know they need to make room in their budgets for purchasing the supplements they regularly include in their regimen.
Most bodybuilders consider supplements one of the most significant additions to their physical routines, knowing they take good results to an entirely different level.
According to Purus Labs, there are cases where certain vitamins and their correct dosages need addressing. They include:
D-Aspartic Acid does not have a dosage maximum, currently. In rare instances, large doses of vitamin D have been harmful to individuals. As for D-Aspartic Acid, like other testosterone inducing agents, the recommendation is to take it on a cyclic schedule. When the sunshine increases, athletes might choose to reduce or eliminate usage since vitamin D synthesis is greatest in the summer months in most areas.
Experts have studied the usefulness of nitrate supplements and the amount needed for optimal health. The consensus now is that moderate amounts of dietary nitrates appear safe and may improve health parameters and physical performance.
Although large amounts of ingested vitamin D are toxic, it is highly unlikely that individuals who are healthy and active and ingest less than 10,000 IU daily would ever experience physical harm. Experts have, however, set limits of 4,000 IU/day for all adults. This number parallels to the D-Pol daily dosage.
In 2014, the University of Memphis undertook two studies testing the efficacy of D-Pol and grading its position as a dietary supplement. Dr. Rick Bloomer, Department Chair of Health and Sports Sciences at U of M, explained that the research included 24 healthy men of an average age of 23. In a double-blind test, they ingested either a placebo or D-Pol (one dose) every day for 28 days.
During that time, the participants who were taking D-Pol had a significant increase in blood nitrate/nitrite. The number of repetitions during a five-set bench press challenge was 11.3% higher after 28 days, compared to a 3.6% raise for those who took the placebo.
The follow-up study involved 12 healthy men of middle age who took D-Pol once or twice a day for 28 days. Total and free testosterone increased roughly 7-10% on average with supplementation. Nitrate/nitrite levels increased dramatically for those who ingested D-Pol. (4-fold for those who took one serving, 10-fold for those who took two)
A questionnaire given to subjects who supplemented showed they experienced an increase in libido, vitality, energy levels, and mental outlook.
Dr. Bloomer, Professor, and Director of the Cardiorespiratory/Metabolic Laboratory has partnered with Purus Labs to test and improve Purus products and ensure the retention of quality and identifiable results.
Rules for Healthy Bodybuilding
Many bodybuilders measure their success by weighing. Any gained weight is a sign of extra muscle. But weighing in too often can give skewed results. Numbers on the scale will vacillate from day to day for many reasons. In this case, the mirror will probably tell you more than the scale.
Building muscles leads to creating small breaks in the muscle fibers which is why your muscles ache after an intense workout. Soreness is not a measure of the quality of your workout. In fact, the more you efficiently train, the less pain you will experience.
Consistency is the most relevant factor in the world of bodybuilding. If you have a regular training time, don’t miss it. Bodybuilding is a marathon, not a sprint.
When increasing muscle mass is the goal, less id more. Short repetitions and sets can reap more rewards than long, drawn-out workout times.
Supplements, as indispensable as they are, represent only one part of your good training habits. They are a segment of the formula and will only help if the rest of your goals and practices are in place.
As with any endeavor, your mind is the most important factor in your training. If your mind is not focused and tuned into your goals, your body is not likely going to improve.
Even though many bodybuilders are encouraging shorter rest times between intervals, this may not be a theory worth following. It’s possible that waiting until you have 100% of your strength back before starting your next rep will increase the quality of your workout. Never underestimate the importance of sound nutrition. What you eat is quite literally what you are. To build muscle mass, you need a steady diet of healthy, clean, nutritious food
These suggestions, along with the addition of Purus Labs’ D-Pol, will give you that extra boost you need to finally achieve the look, quality of health, and confidence you have wanted for so long. Keep up the good work!
