Inspired DVST8 Crimson
Pre-workouts, a stim junkies favourite supplement category. Oh don't get me wrong, I know there are some great stim-free options out there that can really increase your performance, but that's not why most people take pre-workout formulas, is it?
They want the tunnel vision focus, the CNS stimulating crazy energy bursts and the shaky feeling that you are about to explode and demolish your set, your workout, and leave the gym feeling you have not just accomplished something but that you have pushed yourself to the limit and shaken the very foundations of your core. You become inspired.
Years ago there were the go-to products that are now banned. Ultimate Orange, Jack3d, Craze, Unstoppable and a few others, each with its following, its cult that it takes over the category. It defines the category. Now what is left in a world full of crap pre-workouts that are nothing more but clones of each other? A dash of arginine here, a sprinkle of caffeine there, a load of beta-alanine and so on. The pre-workout category is dead. Correction, WAS dead.
Enter DVST8 Crimson
It is time you experienced the awakening, time to forget about the past, step over the bodies of mediocre pre-workouts and embrace the future, now! It is time to turn to DVST8 Crimson, light up the fuse an blow shit up breaking records left and right and elevating yourself to levels not yet achieved.
L-Citrulline Malate 5:1
A bond of citrulline to malic acid is a 5 to 1 ratio. Citrulline is converted to arginine in the body, which then increases nitric oxide levels. Why not use arginine instead in DVST8 Crimson? Because oral arginine is useless! Your body breaks it down and destroys it. Why not use straight citrulline? Because the research that shows the benefits of citrulline use the malate bond. So what does the malic acid do? Well it increases aerobic metabolism which in turn converts more fat and carbohydrates into your bodys energy source known as ATP, so great for fat loss, but that's not the main focus here. The malate together with citrulline can significantly increase oxygen levels within the muscle, enhancing performance, buffering lactic acid and basically make you feel like you can keep going and going and going and going.. Oh sorry, got caught up there. You get the point.
Also known as trimethylglycine or TMG for short. Sounds like a drug right?, well it's not. Betaine is made from the amino acid choline and is 100% natural.
Betaine has a few benefits, from helping balance fluid levels in your body to help hydration and keep cells alive. If you're effectively hydrated, you perform better. It also improves anaerobic performance which increases the capacity you can train. Basically you can perform more reps and more sets due to a dely in muscle fatigue. Again, you can keep going and going and going and.. I did it again didn't I? That's the DVST8 Crimson effect (yes I've had a scoop writing this).
This ingredient has been around forever and it is so undervalued. Similar to betaine, tairine enhances liquid balance in the body but also increases nutrient uptake. Great for keeping cramp away and also helping with blood pressure. You do want increased blood flow but that is by vasodilation, not by making your heart work harder, so taurine comes in handy in DVST8 Crimson making sure of it. Plus, who likes cramp, right? That's the last thing you want while you're throwing some big ass weight around!
Choline is so important to the body. It allows your body to increase acetylcholine, helping nerve cells to better communicate with each other. Without acetylcholine, your brain can't tell your body what to do, nor can you remember who you are, so good luck remembering to eat let alone take DVST8 Crimson.
During prolonged exercise, acetylcholine is broken down, so your cells look for more choline that is floating in your blood to rebuild acetylcholine levels. With low acetylcholine levels, your nerve cells will refuse to stimulate your muscles. Bye bye mind to muscle connection and hello just going through the movements and basically wasting youir workout. Hooray!...
This is a simple one, beetroot is high in nitrates, which is a nitric oxide booster, increasing blood flow so with DVST8 Crimson you'll get a better pump and better oxygen delivery.
Glycine has so many benefits that I'd be here all day explaining them, so I'll cut to the chase and tell you the main ones, asd maybe of you're good, I might write an article solely on this bad ass ingredient. Deal? Back to DVST8 Crimson...
Glycine helps the body produce creatine, which is important for recycling useless ADP back into the energy ATP. Glycine also helps stimulate growth hormone and inhibits the breakdown of muscle and improves recovery.
Also known as DMHA, this is a strong stimulant naturally found in the Aconitum plant species but in supplements a synthetic version is used. It is one of the few stimulants touted to not have a crash effect. Very similar to the old AMP Citrate, DVST8 Crimson will give you an enhanced euphoria and alertness.
AKA Bitter Orange, this is a natural stimulant that works without negatively impacting your cardiovascular system. Plus it's a great fat burning ingredient, bonus!
A great ingredient that improves focus by preventing the breakdown of the focus enhancing neurotransmitter norepinephrine, giving you that tunnel vision like effect and energy, DVST8 Crimson big selling point that has everyone loving it.
Besides boosting your focus by inhibiting the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, it significantly improves cognition too, so not only do you have better cell to cell communication for that important mind to muscle connection, but your focus to achieving that reaches Super Saiyan levels that makes DVST8 Crimson such a powerhouse of a prewkout.
The caffeine variations in Crimson all achieve the same thing, BUT what makes it spoecial is that each one ios released and broken down differently, so you get that nice drip-feed of energy, not o much that you'll get stomach issues, so don't lert that 400mg dosage scare you.
Caffeine works by blocking adenosine receptors in the brain. Adenosine is a central nervous system neuromodulator that has specific receptors and when adenosine binds to its receptors, neural activity slows down, and you feel sleepy. As caffeine reduces the ability of adenosine to bind to the receptors, the natural “braking” action of adenosine is stopped, and neural activity therefore speeds up.
The stimulated nerve cells then release adrenaline, which increases blood flow to muscles, improving the transportation of oxygen throughout the body, enhancing performance. Caffeine also increases levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, enhancing cognitive functioning capabilities and mind to muscle coordination.
There's a reason it's used so much in the industry, besides being cheap, but as I've said, DVST8 Crimson uses time released trademarked versions such as Infinergy and PureCaf.
My Experience with DVST8 Crimson
Out of the three flavours I've tried, Crimson Berry is by far the nicest in my opinion. It mixes well, with some undissolved residue at the bottom, but you get that with most pre-workouts that use some ingredients that are hydrophobic by nature (don't mi well with water).
DVST8 Crimson kicked in about 20 minutes after taking it, feeling a chill run up my neck and then the focus hit me. The energy was so smooth and euphoric, as if the gym was my terrain and I was not only there to workout, but to conquer every machine, every freeweight and make them my b*tch.
The endurance was immense, feeling like the Duracell bunny never running out of juice. Before I knew it, an hour passed in the gym and I felt like I had just gotten started! Zero fatigue, no crash and I could still go on? I must be dreaming because this is exactly what I want from a pre-workout, to feel like I am unstoppable, relentless and the master of my domain, leaving total DVST8tion! BOOM.
