DVST8 of the Union - The most innovative DVST8 formula yet!

DVST8 of the Union - The most innovative DVST8 formula yet!

Inspired Nutraceuticals has long been a frontrunner in the world of innovative supplements, especially pre-workouts! From their very first creation with DVST8 White Cut, which set a new standard for "all-inclusive" pre-workout formulas, Inspired has delivered one revolutionary pre-workout formula after another, and DVST8 of the Union may just be the most truly innovative and revolutionary formula yet! 

The masterminds at Inspired formulated DVST8 of the Union with one amazing goal in mind: to maximize athletic/exercise performance and help you perform at peak intensity throughout your entire workout. This astounding formulation starts off with the Endless Endurance Matrix (this matrix is rightfully named and I'll explain why in just a moment). First, you get the tingles from the Beta-Alanine that hit you right away and are very apparent, which I personally love, Then, the combination of Creatine Monohydrate, L-Glutamine, and Epicatechin kicks in which increases overall workload volume capabilities, workout performance, and nitric oxide production. This specific combination dramatically boosts endurance so you can keep pushing at max intensity for the duration of your whole workout.

  • Beta-Alanine - 3,200mg
Beta-Alanine, or 3-aminopropionic acid is a naturally-occurring beta-amino acid and a component of the histidine dipeptides carnosine and anserine. This is the ingredient that brings on "the tingles" which (for me personally) flips a switch and says it's TIME TO GO!!
Beta-Alanine has the distinct ability to raise muscle carnosine concentrations. In fact, beta-alanine is the limiting amino acid in carnosine synthesis, meaning that its presence in the bloodstream is directly tied to muscle carnosine levels. The resulting carnosine then acts as lactic acid buffer for our muscles (Lactic acid buildup is the burning sensation you feel during an exercise due to not enough oxygen available to complete the process, so a substance called lactate is made). which provides numerous benefits, including increases in work capacity, reducing muscle fatigue, increasing peak power output, and boosting overall athletic performance. These sensational benefits are the reason why Beta-Alanine is a pre-workout staple and a very well-known ingredient.
3,200mg is a clinical dose of Beta Alanine and will provide substantial benefits in increasing time to muscle exhaustion, increasing muscle endurance, delaying muscle fatigue, and buffering lactic acid so you can push your body longer and harder every workout.
  • R3 Tonic (Refuel-Repair-Revolt) (Creatine Monohydrate, L-Glutamine, (-)-Epicatechin) - 2,940mg
Creatine Monohydrate: Creatine is undoubtedly the most tried and true supplement to ever hit the market. Numerous studies over the years have shown the positive influence of creatine monohydrate supplementation on high-intensity exercise performance. With proven benefits such as boosting ATP (The source of energy that is used to power the movement of contraction in working muscles is adenosine triphosphate – the body's biochemical way to store and transport energy) levels for more energy, increased strength and power, increased muscle mass and thickness, increased muscular recovery, improving athletic performance, and enhancing overall workload/volume capabilities; it's easy to see why creatine is also one of the most sought out supplements on the market.
Creatine is also the original cell volumizer. Let me explain... creatine increases cellular water retention through osmosis. This gives creatine the distinct ability to cause muscle fibers to swell, which will also stimulate muscle protein synthesis, promoting muscle growth. These increases in cell volumization and muscle cell uptake can significantly increase anaerobic power aka strength gains, as well as improve both endurance and power/force output. Simply put, craetine pulls water into the muscle cells. This increases muscle fullness or volume. This process is also called water-based pumps, which creates an extreme full muscle feeling.
- L-Glutamine: L-Glutamine is the most abundant and naturally occurring conditionally essential amino acid in the human body. In fact, it makes up approximately 60% of the amino acid pool in your muscle tissue. Nearly 90% of glutamine is produced in the skeletal muscles and it is one of the very few amino acids with such versatility. L-Glutamine is extremely versatile... it plays a role in gut health, muscle growth, the immune system, and much more. Because it is so abundant, most proteins and their functions involve glutamine.
L-Glutamine helps direct the body when and where to place nitrogen atoms in order to rebuild and repair muscle tissue. In order to build muscle mass and strength, you need to maintain a positive nitrogen balance. This is the optimal state for muscle growth, where the nitrogen intake is greater than nitrogen output. Essentially, it shows the body has sufficiently recovered from its last workout. The greater the nitrogen balance, the faster is workout recovery.
During bouts of intense training or exercise, your body actually utilizes and depletes all of its glutamine stores, which inhibits its function, decreasing strength, stamina, and lengthening the recovery period. With the addition of Glutamine to this formula, you’re ensuring your body has an adequate supply of glutamine to maintain a positive nitrogen balance to reduce muscle soreness and protect yourself from workout induced muscle mass breakdown, or DOMS ( Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).
- Epicatechin: Epicatechin is a bioactive compound classed as a flavonol, a plant based phytochemical which is found in a number of foods in trace amounts, including green tea and most famously, dark chocolate. Epicatechin has been the subject of numerous studies that have uncovered a host of physiological benefits, including: Enhancing muscle growth and strength naturally, increasing nitric oxide production for improved vascularity, blood flow and endurance, and improving insulin sensitivity, regulating blood sugar levels and stimulating muscle protein synthesis. It  has been proven to lower myostatin, which unlocks new potential for massive muscle growth. Myostatin or growth differentiation factor 8 (GDF8) is a naturally occurring protein in muscles that limits skeletal muscle growth and keeps muscles from growing excessively large. With myostatin inhibition, muscle growth is now at peak potential, allowing for much more substantial gains
Why is this important in a pre-workout?  Epicatechin increases Nitric Oxide levels in the body, which presents a plethora of benefits for weight training/exercising. Nitric oxide improves vasodilation.  Blood flow is what carries not only oxygenated blood to your muscles but also key nutrients that aid in the recovery and muscle-building process. Additionally, during workouts, dilating the blood vessels and increasing blood flow can help remove lactic acid buildup in the muscle to help improve your workout performance. This also improves muscle pumps dramatically.

Next we have the SR2 Code-Stimulated Reality and T'Was All in the Veins matrixes and this is where the fun really begins! These matrixes combine a very potent and specific blend of stimulants, nootropics, and vasodilators at clinical doses to maximize energy levels, drastically boost mental clarity and focus, and flood the muscles with fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients leaving you with the feeling of a Demi-God in the gym. 
The specific blend of stimulants at clinical doses smacks you right in the face almost instantly! A surge of colossal energy comes over you like you were possessed by some MEGA energetic entity, and then the imminent desire and motivation to crush a workout hits like a ton of bricks. What's more, due to the specific combination of stimulants in this formula, this colossal energy sticks with you for the entire workout to ensure you perform at peak intensity, and the best part... no mid or post-workout crash!! In short.. the energy from this formula is just incredible! But, the energy and focus train doesn't stop there. This formula is also colossally dosed with potent nootropics (aka  smart drugs that are a class of substances that can boost brain performance. They are sometimes called cognition enhancers or memory enhancing substances) that will drastically boost mental clarity and focus, providing a tunnel vision like effect so you can truly dial in and crush every rep, every set, every workout!


  • L-Tyrosine - 1,500mg

L-Tyrosine is one of the most popular ingredients in pre-workouts these days, and for very good reason. It plays a significant role in the production of Dopamine (our feel good hormone), Adrenaline and Noradrenaline, Epinephrine and Norepinephrine, and thyroid hormones. Supplementing L-Tyrosine replenishes these important neurotransmitters and dramatically improves mental function (focus, concentration, memory, learning).

1,500mg is a massive dosage of L-Tyrosine and will trigger several of our “feel-good” neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine and dopamine. This will greatly enhance a sense of well being, boost mood, and drastically increase mental alertness and focus. As an added bonus, it can also lower anxiety and stress so nothing will stand in your way from demolishing every session! 

  • Caffeine Anhydrous - 350mg

Caffeine is without a doubt the most known and utilized stimulant in the world. Caffeine occurs naturally in plants such as coffee beans, tea, and cacao, which is the source of cocoa for chocolate. It's a CNS (Central Nervous System) stimulant that has been shown to reduce feelings of fatigue, increase energy levels, heighten mental alertness, lower perceived exertion, and even lower levels of perceived pain.

Caffeine also improves mental acuity and sharpness, helps maintain laser-like focus, and even improves some technical skills both during and after strenuous activity. And, if that isn't enough, it's also believed to enhance the body's ability to use its own fat as fuel, which can effectively increase the time to exhaustion in endurance events. 

350mg is a clinical dose of caffeine anhydrous. This specific dosage has been shown to maximize the benefits of caffeine supplementation. These benefits include:

- Increased mental alertness and energy levels 

Caffeine works in the brain as a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant, so when I say energy, I mean alertness. Caffeine blocks certain receptors in the brain that increase levels of epinephrine, adrenaline, and dopamine. Blocking these receptors in the brain gives you that drive you feel—and a bit of euphoria—when you consume caffeine before a workout

- Increased Strength and Power

The nerves that activate muscle fibers, once stimulated by caffeine, activate those muscle fibers with greater force. More force equals more strength, which is why caffeine can increase your strength during a workout.

- Enhanced Muscular Endurance

Caffeine increases endurance in several ways. The first is by increasing fat burning during workouts. When you train with caffeine, you burn more fat. This spares muscle glycogen, which means you have more energy later in the workout, when you need it most. Another way caffeine can improve endurance is by boosting nitric oxide levels. That's right, research shows that caffeine can enhance vasodilation, the term for the widening of blood vessels. This allows more blood to flow to the muscles, which in turn delivers more oxygen and more nutrients, resulting in greater overall endurance.

- Reduced Muscle Soreness

Believe it or not, research shows that caffeine works incredibly well for helping ease muscle soreness by altering your perceived exertion during your workouts. With less muscle soreness, you can go harder, perhaps banging out a few extra reps you probably wouldn't have gotten if that muscle soreness was too much. More reps equals more work done by your muscles, and that equals better results.

  • EnXtra® Alpina Galanga Extract (Root) - 300mg


Alpinia galanga is native to Southeast Asia, where it’s used as a food and herb. It is part of the ginger family, and, similar to ginger, the rhizome, or creeping rootstalk is what’s used.  EnXtra® is a clinically studied and standardized Alpinia galanga rhizome extract. In numerouos studies, EnXtra® has been examined complementary to caffeine and as a standalone substance. Clinical studies have shown and proven that supplementation with EnXtra® support alertness and focus. It’s clinically proven to improve alertness and focus for up to 5 hours with and without caffeine. EnXtra® can be used as a replacement for caffeine or used with caffeine to prevent crash and prolong caffeine’s nootropic benefits.

  • Eria Jarensis Etxract - 150mg

 Eria Jarensis Extract or N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine is a neuromodulator on the Central Nervous System (CNS) and provides several mental effects including powerful focus, energy and even an increase in mood. It provides therapeutic mood boosting effects due to its ability increase levels of Dopamine and Noradrenaline the body.

Dopamine is the hormone responsible for ‘feeling good’, with Eria Jarensis Extract reported to give users a euphoric sensation. These hormones are also associated with enhancing concentration levels, alertness and focus, while other have also reported that Eria Jarensis Extract was also associated with the reduction in appetite, acting as a bronchodilator and reducing feelings of anxiety! Therefore, supplementing with Eria Jarensis Extract can increase the quality of one’s training, assist with fat loss and improve general concentration levels throughout the day. This is also the primary substance that is responsible for the tunnel vision focus I mentioned earlier in the blog.

  • zümXR® XR Caffeine - 100mg

zümXR® Caffeine is extended released caffeine that alters how caffeine is absorbed and then processed by the body. The technology of zümXR® takes you typical caffeine that has extremely rapid absorption and is processed in the body almost instantly and delays the entire process. This delaying effect then produces an extended-release effect on the caffeine.

Your typical caffeine anhydrous is fast-absorbing, fast-digesting and VERY fast acting! With effects felt within the first 15 minutes after consumption and all the energy being delivered within the first hour. This is why we see caffeine anhydrous used in 90% of stimulant formulas, the rapid onset of effects makes it extremely desirable for achieving increases in energy for users. 

On the other side of the coin, zümXR® Caffeine, is designed to NOT provide the effects of caffeine anhydrous; at least from an energy release timeline point of view. The specific zümXR® technology is designed to allow no MORE than 50% of the caffeine ‘energy’ within the first hour after the consumption of zümXR® Caffeine. And then by the 5-6 hour mark, no LESS than 80% of the caffeine energy will have been released, absorbed and utilized by the body.

This slowed down release of caffeine allows for much more gradual onset of effects from the caffeine serve attached to the zümXR® and thus allows for much longer-lasting energy than you typical caffeine anhydrous. This slowed down release also helps to prevent any jitters and alleviates a mid or post-workout crash!

  • CoLEAN™ - 100mg


CoLEAN™ is a patented blend of alpha-GPC (50%), choline DL-bitartrate, and citicoline. All 3 are potent 

a precursor for acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter synthesized by cholinergic neurons and involved in muscle control, circadian rhythm, memory, and many other neuronal functions. 

Alpha-GPC (A-GPC) is a potent building block of acetylcholine, which as we discussed, is a vastly important neurotransmitter present in both brain and muscle tissue. A-GPC is converted to phosphorylcholine, a metabolically active form of the essential nutrient choline. Phosphorylcholine migrates to the synaptic nerve endings found throughout the central nervous system and in turn increases acetylcholine synthesis and release. All athletic research performed with A-GPC has proven to benefit cognitive performance (memory, learning, recall, focus, and repetitive tasking) and also to benefit physical performance, including power output, force development, strength, jumping, and agility. It has even been shown to help improve video game performance. Major plus for all you gamers out there who also love to lift!

Choline-bitartrate is a chemical compound, which is augments acetylcholine neurotransmission, thus enhancing muscle fiber recruitment. Acetylcholine is found in neuromuscular junctions and helps signal muscle contractions, which is the key component to better “mind-muscle connection” when training. It also plays a key role in basically every cognitive function from balance, coordination, memory, mental alertness, to just learning in general. 

Citicoline helps enhance communication between neurons, maintain normal levels of acetylcholine, protect neural structures, and support healthy brain activity and energy. Clinical studies have shown citicoline's remarkable ability to promote focus and attention, which is vital for optimal training performance. It has also been shown to increase the activity of mitochondria, the energy powerhouses of cells that produce Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP), which in turn increases ATP production that supports the health of neurotransmitters vital for sustained mental effort.

  • Hordenine - 60mg

As a powerful hormone regulator, Hordenine effects include increased cellular metabolism, promoting fat burning and enhancing mental focus. It's actually very similar in chemical structure to the neurochemical tyramine, which assists in the release of hormones such as norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine. Hordenine crosses the blood brain barrier and functions as a monoamine oxidase (MAO B) inhibitor. Hordenine effects and benefits include balancing hormone levels and improving nerve communication.

When Dopamine levels get too low, we start to experience various disturbances in the central nervous system including stress responses, symptoms of depression, and difficulty focusing. Hordenine effects and benefits remedy these issues and lifts concentration levels while improving mood.The adrenergic system is stimulated, creating the sensation of lasting natural energy. Cell metabolism is increased, resulting in more energy for all processes of mind and body.

  • Isopropylnorsynephrine - 50mg


Isopropylnorsynephrine is a modified version of synephrine -- the primary active alkaloid found in citrus aurantium. 

Synephrine is a naturally occurring alkaloid that is considered to be a stimulant and nootropic due to its affect on weight loss and cognitive processes in the brain. Synephrine helps to increase metabolic rate, increase caloric expenditure and elevate energy levels throughout the day. In particular, synephrine is a beta-agonist similar to Ephedrine and acts to increase metabolic rate via increasing lipolysis and BMR (basal metabolic rate).

Now, here comes the kicker!! Isopropylnorsynephrine has actually been found to be more potent than synephrine, which means more energy, more focus, and more fat burning! The boosts in fat oxidation and metabolic rate is also a major plus for those dieting as it will help you maximize the weight loss benefits of exercise.

  • Cocoabuterol® Extract - 30mg


Cocoabuterol® is a natural cocoa extract containing the very bioactive compounds, to include N-Coumaroyldopamine, N-Caffeoyldopamine, EGCG, phenethylamines, and Theobromine. The natural alkaloids in Cocoabuterol® can greatly increase cAMP via beta-adrenoceptor, which can exert attractive fat burning and muscle building functions. Cocoabuterol® supports physiological pathways which improve insulin sensitivity, supports muscle protein synthesis, decreases skeletal muscle atrophy, promotes fat burning, increases blood flow, enhances mood and has antioxidant effects.

Theobromine is an indispensable methylxanthine ingredient in Cocoabuterol®. Whether you incorporate it into your pre-workout stack or get it from one of its many natural sources, theobromine is a worthwhile stimulating substance to have.
Theobromine is effective in the increase of NO and hence give better pump if ingested pre-workout. It can be used for a short period in order to reduce residual water under the skin to give more muscle definition. Theobromine is also known for its ability to dilate blood vessels making it a widely used as a muscle relaxer and artery dilator for people with high blood pressure. Its ability to dilate has also been distorted and used with digitalis to relieve dilation.Theobromine stays in the body for a long time. About half of what you consume will take seven to eight hours to pass through, giving it more time to act in the body. You won’t be crashing because Cocoabuterol® will still be exerting its stimulant-like effects.

  • Alpha Yohimbine - 1mg

Rauwolscine (also known as Alpha Yohimbine), similar to its stereoisomer, yohimbine, is most commonly used as an amped-up fat burner. Recent developments are showing it has some potential as a pre-workout as well, especially when combined in bodybuilding stacks. 

Rauwolscine has two notable mechanisms through which it positively impacts pre-workout formulas:

- Alpha blocking. Rauwolscine’s first-line mechanism is as an alpha-adrenergic receptor antagonist. This bioactivity helps with blood pressure, and may have pre-workout benefits related to enhanced circulation and better pumps.

- Activating serotonin. The compound elevates serotonin levels by activating 5-HT1a/b receptors – a bioactivity that may directly promote a bright mood and indirectly help fat-burning by helping to promote appetite satisfaction.

The breakdown of fat cells is restricted by a number of processes, including the activation of alpha-adrenergic receptors by epinephrine and norepinephrine. Rauwolscine acts to oppose such activity by blocking alpha-adrenergic receptors and enabling fat burning to continue functioning seamlessly. As an antagonist, rauwolscine does not directly activate fat burning, but rather allows the operation to carry on unreservedly, which suggests increases in weight loss concurrent with the upkeep of body muscle and definition. In other words, for bodybuilding applications rauwolscine may help with “shredding” efforts.

Rauwolscine’s alpha blocking activity leaves excess quantities of epinephrine and norepinephrine readily available for use, for a stimulant effect. Following this reasoning, rauwolscine is suspected to amplify performance as a potential adrenaline booster. Holding more available adrenaline in the system may likely enhance muscle strength and net performance due to the importance of related hormones in workout regimens. Moreover, muscles might be able to get started the slightest bit sooner and sustain workout duration for longer stretches of time.

Through activating 5-HT1a/b receptors, rauwolscine is capable of inducing serotonin-like effects throughout the body.7 Serotonin is largely renowned for being a formidable mood booster. Sustaining a positive disposition may be an idyllic state of being for people engaged in exercises. It can thus possibly account for more motivated and enjoyable workouts. Accompanying effects of increasing serotonin levels include padding pain sensitivity and regulating blood pressure, which may additionally benefit workout sessions.

  • Yohimbine HCI 1mg

Yohimbine has the distinct ability to block the alpha-2 adrenergic receptors located in fat cells which normally suppresses fat burning. It also increases the metabolic rate to help speed up overall weight loss and energy expenditure.

Yohimbine HCI will also stimulate better autonomic responses by triggering your nervous system, dilate blood vessels to deliver more nutrients and oxygen to the muscles, and help increase force development, power and speed.

DVST8 Of The Union 40srv



The mammoth duo of Citrulline and GlyerPump, contained in the T'was All in the Veins Matrix, creates the perfect atmosphere for MASSIVE muscle pumps that will have your muscles feeling like they are swelling up like a balloon about to burst at any moment. The muscle pumps are super dense, full, and will go head to head with many of the top-rated stimulant-free products built specifically for that, but as we've just seen, DVST8 of the Union offers much, much more!!

  • L-Citrulline - 4,000mg

Citrulline is a nonessential amino acid that serves as an endogenous precursor to arginine, thereby greatly enhancing nitric oxide synthesis through what is known as the arginine-nitric oxide pathway. Nitric oxide has various performance-boosting functions in the body including a vasodilatory effect, which will increase blood, oxygen, and nutrient delivery to working muscles. Furthermore, nitric oxide can also reduce the oxygen and energy cost of exercise allowing you to push the working muscles longer and harder.

4,000mg is a very potent dose of this potent vasodilator, so you can definitely expect massive pumps, extreme muscle fullness (that blown up balloon feeling that we all love), and some crazy vascularity. Supplying the muscles with all that fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients will also improve recovery time between exercises and between workouts, increase  strength and power that will likely also lead to an increase in muscle growth, and enhance overall training capacity so you can train longer and harder.

  • Glycerpump – 2,000mg

Glycerol has been around the industry for several years, but has recently gained extensive popularity in pre-workout and intra-workout supplements for its many benefits that include; increasing cellular hydration, improving endurance, and increasing muscular pumps during physical activity. The most popular being muscular endurance and the oh-so sought out “PUMP”. 

GlycerPump is a new high-yield form of the popular hydration agent supplying 65% glycerol by mass. This new form has been spray dried which nearly eliminates the horrendous clumping problems that originally came along with glycerol. GlycerPump, GlycerSize, and HydroMax Glycerol are the 3 main version of glycerol currently used due to high-yield and the elimination of clumping. 

Staying adequately hydrated can help reduce muscle fatigue and reduce the risk of injury. As they say, hydration is key, and this is especially true when using glycerol products. Glycerol basically acts as a sort of sponge, drawing water into your muscles, allowing for a “hyperhydrated” state. This facilitates what we call a “water pump” that makes our muscles larger and fuller than usual. So, the better hydrated you are, the better the pumps will be!

Now that we've seen the full breakdown of this phenomenal formula, let's discuss one aspect that is always a fan favorite... FLAVORS. DVST8 of the Union is available in 3 different flavors:

Northern Lights (my personal favorite) - This is a super refreshing blueberry coconut colada flavor, that truly hits home for any pina colada fans out there. 

L$D - This is a Lemon + Strawberry Daiquiri flavor that has a true summer vibe, and brings the beach right to your shaker.

Black Nebula - This is a Grape + Strawberry blend that was formulated perfectly! A lot of grape flavors can have a real "cough syrup" taste, but Inspired truly nailed this flavor, and blended these two together nicely.

There we have it... the full breakdown of this performance boosting masterpiece! 

Endurance that never ends, god-like energy, unparalleled focus and mind-to-muscle connections, and out of this world muscle pumps: DVST8 of the Union!
