I put this together to answer some commonly asked questions on Testabolan V2 and also educate people who may not have heard of this awesome natural anabolic. Here is a detailed explanation of how this product works, the science behind it, and why each ingredient is included and how they interact with each other!
Starting off with Divanil, the star of the product and the base of the formula
This is the main ingredient because it dramatically raises your body's Free Testosterone levels by deactivating SHBG.
Here are excerpts on Divanils Effects on SHBG compared to other ingredients:
The natural lignans (−)-3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran (1), (−)-matairesinol (2), (−)-secoisolariciresinol (3), (±)-enterolactone (4), (±)-enterodiol (5), and nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) (6) reduce the binding of 3H-labeled 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to human sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). (−)-3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran (1) has the highest binding affinity (Ka = 3.2 ± 1.7 × 106 M-1) of all lignans investigated so far.Lignans from the Roots of Urtica dioica and their Metabolites Bind to Human Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)
Polar extracts of the stinging nettle (Urtica dioica L.) roots contain the lignans (+)-neoolivil, (-)-secoisolariciresinol, dehydrodiconiferyl alcohol, isolariciresinol, pinoresinol, and 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran. These compounds were either isolated from Urtica roots, or obtained semisynthetically. Their affinity to human sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) was tested in an in vitro assay. The affinity of (-)-3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran was outstandingly high.
What is SHBG and why should I care?
Here is a detailed explanation, Sex hormone binding globulin: origin, function and clinical significance.
But what you really need to know, is that SHBG is what makes the difference between Free and Bound testosterone. ONLY free testosterone can exert its effects on the Androgen Receptor. The androgen receptor is one chief way your body activates all of its muscle growth mechanisms To put this in perspective... normally your body deactivates up to 98%
of its own testosterone! Even a 1% increase will be increasing your anabolic Free Testosterone by 50%!
So with Divanil, we can get our free testosterone levels jacked up so that androgen receptors are firing on all cylinders. So how can we take andvantage of this??? Read on!
With our androgen receptors fully saturated, the best way to take advantage is to increase MPS, or muscle protein synthesis. This process is how your body builds and repairs a muscle after you train it (causing hypertrophy). That is where Ecdysterone comes into play. Ecdy has been proven to increase protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. This will allow you to recover faster and build more muscle mass than ever before, and also eliminate the chance of
But why stop there? If there is one thing that will help support this process of growth and repair, its increasing your body's Growth Hormone levels...
Mucuna Pruriens (50% L-Dopa)
The structure of L-Dopa
Our Mucuna Puriens are standardized for 50% L-Dopa. This is an extremely potent dose of L-Dopa. What is L-Dopa? L-Dopa is your quickest way to get your growth hormone levels off the charts like we just discussed.
Here is an article detailing the process:
L-Dopa Stimulates Release of Hypothalamic Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone in Humans

With growth hormone levels spiked, we will be blasting our muscles with glucose and amino acids at a dramatically increased rate. It is these nutrients that build muscle mass, and give your muscles that full hard, dense look.
So between these 3 awesome compounds we will have jacked up free testosterone, boosted protein synthesis, glucose and amino acid uptake, and raised Growth Hormone levels... A perfect recipe for an anabolic environment. But all of this depends on ONE CRITICAL FACTOR.. TRAINING INTENSITY!!
Your workouts are the spark that creates the fire of muscle growth. Without an intense stimulating workout our muscles have no reason to adapt and grow. We need to address this issue, and the most efficient way of doing so is with a potent Adaptogen...
Rhodiola Rosea (3% Rosavins)
Rhodiola is an Adaptogen. An adaptogen is used a natural herb that is proposed to increase the body’s resistance to stress, trauma, anxiety and fatigue. This leads to a less catabolic environment during training and recovery, and more anabolism for tissue repair as well as increased energy levels. So those intense workouts will stay intense, and you will not fall victim to overtraining and inefficient recovery. Adding Rhodiola Rosea to Testabolan V2 was a no brainer, it allows you to train harder, train longer, and increases recovery and adaptations.
The last ingredient in Testabolan V2 is a truly underappreciated compound. The reason that you probably have never heard of it or seen it is because it isnt cheap, and its not that easy to source. But of course we didnt let that stop us from using it. This compound is the final piece of the puzzle to maximizing your natural anabolism with Testabolan V2.
Humanofort is an Isolated embryonic oglio-peptide, this peptide is extracted from chicken eggs. This peptide contains naturally occurring IGF-1 and IGF-2 (insulin like growth factors 1 and 2), FGF (fibroblast growth factors), NGF (nerve growth factors), EGF (epidermal growth factors), and CTGF (connective tissue growth factors). In addition to these growth factors, Humanofort is also increases the conversion of Cholesterol to Testosterone conversion via STAR Protein hormone.
So the key here is to continue the cycle that we created with Divanil. Divanil works by maximizing the free testosterone that your body has. It does this by deactivating SHBG, it doesnt really have much to do with ACTUAL production of testosterone.... thats where Humanofort comes into play. We have an ingredient that can drive test levels up by increasing the cholesterol to testosterone conversion, this will augment the Divanil, because a path has been cleared for that testosterone to remain unbound and ready to activate the androgen receptor.
So if you havent heard of testabolan V2 or werent sure how the product works, now you can see why it really is the most potent natural anabolic on the market. Nothing will get your body into an anabolic state faster and stronger than Testabolan V2!
