Introducing DVST8 Dark, fresh from the labs at Inspired Nutraceuticals and ready to power your workouts into a new spiritual dimension.
Our formulators have strived to distill this high-octane, relentless energy into powder form. By the time your sets are done, the productive devastation on your muscle-tissues will be undeniable.
DVST8 launches an artillery barrage of 5 powerful blends directly at your body to invoke the perfect environment for growth to occur. Every aspect of performance is in the crosshairs
The DVST8 Dark Formula
DVST8: THE TRUTH MATRIX
We commence our assault with THE TRUTH MATRIX, a powerful shirt-ripping pump blend that will have you ballooning like a blimp during your movements. Through nitric oxide amplification and quenching your cells’ thirst, you’ll have the bloodflow you need to rock through your sets.
We begin with 6,666 skin-ripping milligrams of L-citrulline, an amino acid that plays an integral role in the urea cycle and in cardiovascular health.[1-3] Once in the body, citrulline is converted into arginine, which then goes onto become nitric oxide.[4,5] There is perhaps no better ingredient on the market for promoting vasodilation, and therefore stimulating blood flow in the muscles.
L-citrulline is backed up in DVST8 by 2,000 milligrams of NO3-T arginine nitrate, a two-pronged pump ingredient we've seen in other Inspired formulas, shown to provide wicked blood flow, vasodilation, and pumps. Nitrate converts to nitric oxide with one pathway, and while arginine is a nitric oxide precursor in another. Research has shown a strong improvement in athletic performance when supplementing arginine in the 1.5 to 2 gram range.
ENDLESS: Endurance & VO2 Supply
DVST8 won’t allow you to settle for short bursts of intensity, followed by lounging around. The ENDLESS blend targets your endurance – letting you last as long as you need to squeeze every last rep in.
This blend starts with the classic 3,200 milligram dose of beta alanine. The source of that famous tingling effect, beta alanine is most importantly an endurance booster. It’s a building block of carnosine, a molecule that buffers lactic acid in muscles. This means less fatigue, and more reps.
Cocoa bean extract is standardized for theobromine, which has been shown to improve energy levels, enhance mood, and stimulate thermogenesis.[9,10] By inhibiting adenosine, theobromine can improve alertness and motivation.
Naringin is a bioflavonoid derived from citrus maxima that has been shown to suppress metalloproteinases-9 (MMP-9) expression, which contributes to oxidative stress. As a result, physical fatigue may be decreased with the supplementation of naringin.
DARK: STIMULATED REALITY IGNITION (SR)
Now here’s where we bump up the volume. The STIMULATED REALITY IGNITION matrix targets your energy levels starting at the fundamental cellular level.
This is where you’ll really feel it. You’ll feel the stimulation coursing through your nerve endings in a crescendo of fire.
Starting off with a powerful 400 milligrams of caffeine coming from 325 milligrams of smack-you-in-the-face caffeine anhydrous and 100 milligrams of Infinergy dicaffeine malate (which yields ~75mg caffeine), DVST8's DARK blend sets itself up to be one of the more formidable energy-boosters on the market, without going over the top.
Next up we have NeuroCap, derived from Baikal SkullCap Root, a neuroprotective ingredient with flavonoids and other bioactive compounds that support cognitive-enhancing properties, anti-inflammatory effects, and stress production. And the name skullcap is cool as hell, so it had to be included.
SYNapsis (citrus aurantium extract) is a powerful source of alkaloids, one of the best energy and fat-burning ingredients we have at our disposal. The alkaloids target the beta-3 adrenoceptors in the body’s stored fat tissue,[13, sparking a cyclic adenosine monophosphate cascade that results in the pounds melting away.
To round out the stimulants, we have DVST8 Dark's own Luciferene (Lotus Leaf Extract). Lotus leafextract consists of stimulatory constituents that have been shown to enhance mood, focus, and energy via serotonin receptors.[15,16] It provides an excellent euphoric edge to the harder stimulants in the mix like caffeine and SYNapsis.
ENDLESS: HYDRATION REFILL
While all of that energy is great, you’re setting yourself up for a major crash and burn if your cells aren’t receiving the hydration they need to function.
We begin, of course, with the most recognizable electrolyte: salt. While salt gets a bad rep, it is absolutely vital for maintaining proper hydration. With a bold dose of 770 milligrams of sea salt, we’re certainly not at risk of sodium deficiency as we pound the weights.
Understand that the issues with salt begin when it isn’t backed up by adequate potassium intake. We’ve included a solid 287 milligrams of potassiumin DVST8 Dark, which will keep you balanced and your cells swimming in water.
Next up is a nice, easy 169 milligram dose of magnesium, which is essential for virtually every aspect of bodily health. In fact, magnesium is a key component in over 600 reactions related to cellular metabolism, energy production, and protein synthesis.
Lastly in the hydration blend, we have 75 milligrams of fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS is a carbohydrate that improves the availability of the minerals contained in the blend, leading to a multiplying effect on the efficacy of sodium, potassium, and magnesium.[18-21]
DARK: MIND/MUSCLE SYNC MODULE
As intense as DVST8 is on the physical front, we’re not mindless barbarians. More like cultured crusaders. The MIND/MUSCLE SYNC MODULE is the key to unlocking your brain just as much as your muscles.
L-tyrosine is an amino acid that critically manages the stress induced by intense training and body recomposition. As a precursor to neurotransmitters like dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline,[22-24] L-Tyrosine is a must-have for any stack aimed at improving focus, energy, and motivation.
CoLean is a blend of Alpha-GPC (300mg) and Citicoline (200mg). Choline is an essential nutrient for proper organ function in general, but our interest lies in its role as a substrate for acetylcholine, also referred to as the “learning neurotransmitter”. Helping to signal muscle contractions, acetylcholine is responsible for an enhanced mind-muscle connection during training sessions.
DMAE dl-bitartrate also belongs to the cholinergic family. It’s structurally similar to choline, and can further help improve memory and may enhance concentration. In addition, there is some evidence to suggest that it can improve mood and overall sense of well-being.
