What You Should Know
Divanex is a stinging nettle supplement marketed to bodybuilders to increase testosterone levels. More testosterone means bigger muscles and more strength. There are thousands of supplements out there that claim to increase testosterone and NONE work. There are, however, supplements that free up testosterone or increase the ratio of testosterone to estrogen to mimic an increase. There are also illegal supplements and medications sold under the table that actually increase testosterone. These are extremely dangerous and should NEVER be used.
Information on Divanex was found on the official Nutraplanet website. Nutraplanet is the company behind Divanex. You can purchase the supplement online for less than $30 from the Divanex website.
List of Ingredients
- Stinging Nettle Root
Stinging nettle root contains 3, 4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran, which is where the name Divanex is likely derived. This substance binds with the sex hormones that attach to testosterone. With the sex hormones bound, free testosterone increases and the bodybuilder increases lean muscle mass and strength. Unlike prohormones, the increases should be easier to maintain after the bodybuilder stops taking the supplement, but the gains will not be equal to those associated with a prohormone or steroid.
There are clinical studies support the binding action of stinging nettle, but none are listed on the Nutraplanet website. There are, however, reviews of then supplements from 56 people who’ve used Divanex. The average rating is less than 3 stars out of a possible 5 stars. Interestingly, of the 56 votes there are only six physical reviews. Those six reviews are all 5 stars. This makes it look like Nutraplanet paid someone to write positive reviews to sell more of the product.
