The market of testosterone boosters can be vast and worrying. With each product claiming their own natural ingredients to help your strength gains rise even higher, it can be hard to determine which products are effective, and which aren’t.
Let’s look at D-Pol, a testosterone booster on the market – a product that claims not only to increase Luteinzing hormones for more free testosterone, but claims to be dual-functioning – being able to help out with the production of nitric oxcide in the body as well. As nitric oxcide has been seen to greatly improve the blood flow in users, we can see why creator of D-Pol, Purus Labs would go for such a feature. It should cause a higher pump in the gym, and enhance a user’s libodo.
According to their website, verbatim D-Pol is capable of:
- Intense strength and lean muscle accrual through increased circulating Free Testosterone levels
- Prolonged exercise endurance due to greater mitochondrial efficiency and enhanced oxygen-carrying blood flow
- Superior nutrient delivery due to heightened and sustained vasodilation.
- Extremely increased virility (i.e. sex-drive)
The Nitric Oxcide potentiator angle is what really drew me to review this product. I was interested to see if the T booster could really live up to it’s name.
About the Company
Purus Labs believes the supplement market is stagnant with ineffective products padded by large marketing budgets. When talking about other supplement companies Purus Labs have commented: “Typically, they design lengthy and purposely confusing nutrition panels, haphazardly concoct pixie dust proprietary blends in order to mask their cheap formulas”
Pure Labs manufacture multiple supplement types that promote a healthy lifestyle, from pre workouts to proteins and testosterone boosters. The majority of their business is done in the States, but can be acquired in the UK and Europe through various nutrition websites.
The Ingredients and they work
D-Pol is taken 3 times a day with single one pill servings. It is advised to not have your final serving in the evening due to lack of sleeping.
A good way to plan you’re serving schedule would be breakfast, lunch and late afternoon.
The research behind D-Pol puts it up with huge increases in Luteinizing Hormones, Free Testosterone, Adenosine Triphosphate and also in the body’s oxidative phosphorylation ratio.
As usual, we’re going to put this to the test by analyzing the ingredients:
Vitamin D3 – This is key to building up testosterone levels. Most commonly we get D3 via the sun, but either due to location, or modern living, not a lot of us get the recommended amount. It is great for testosterone as it regulates the aromatase enzyme which is responsible for estrogen production.
Vitamin B6 – Affecting the production of testosterone both directly and indirectly – Vitamin B6 boosts testosterone and regulates androgens (the steroid-hormone precursor to testosterone).
Vitamin B9 – Raises energy levels and cognitive function, it does does this by lowering homocysteine levels which have been linked to cognitive impairment.
Vitamin B12 – Essential to producing DNA, hormones and red blood cells. Fats and carbohydrates are processed by making great use of B12.
Sodium – This is probably to work with the nitratine later on in the product to make sodium nitrate. On it’s own sodium can actually weaken erections by drawing fluid away from areas the body to be absorbed by the salt. This can raise blood pressure and weaken erections.
What’s coming up now is more of a Pseudo Proprietary Blend. We know how much DAA there is, however D3 and Nitratine have been put on different measurements or not mentioned. I’m surprised they’ve actually done this, considering how heavily they implied a distaste for proprietary blends.
Just to be clear, there’s 3600.1 mg in the blend, that should be 3120mg DAA, 0.1mg D3 and 480mg Nitratine.
Technically Purus Labs aren’t hiding the dosages, as we could deduce the variables. However, not printing it clearly on the packaging seems somewhat suspect.
D-Aspartic Acid – A great source of testosterone production. D-Aspartic Acid is a vital amino acid that releases the luteinzing hormones, growth hormones and follicle stimulating hormones throughout the body – combining this with the fact it also builds up the testes makes it a highly respectable ingredient.
Nitratine – It’s not often that you find nitratine in a product. It’s a naturally occurring for of sodium nitrate. Despite this being in the nitrate family, I’ve never come across a study states that this is the ideal ingredient to boost nitric oxide in the body.

In terms of ingredients, D-Pol seems relatively safe. These are all natural ingredients and shouldn’t put the body in any danger.
In fact, the main thing to worry about with this product is the ineffectiveness of it. Although the majority of the ingredients are good testosterone boosters, there just simply aren’t enough of them. However it is harder to tell with Vitamin D3 as it does appear twice in this product for the same amount. Does that mean there’s 4000UI or 8000UI, despite their mission statement, Purus Labs made this rather confusing.
Also there’s no Zinc, Nettle Root, Fenugreek, Ginseng or any other natural hard-hitters that really raise testosterone levels. This makes the finished product seem more of a multivitamin than a testosterone booster.
Pros and Cons
- The majority of ingredients used are good for T boosting
- Constant top-ups throughout the day are a good way to raise testosterone
- All measurements of ingredients can eventually be worked out
- Not potent enough Testosterone Booster
- A lot of key ingredients missed
- Confusing ingredient label
D-Pol Review Conclusion
D-Pol was a nice idea for a new form of testosterone booster. However, it in no way delivered compared to some of the natural boosters on the market. To make things worse, it missed a lot of the ingredients pegged to actually raise testosterone and concentrated more on the just the vitamins.
Although the aim was in the right area, this testosterone booster just did’t have what it takes to really make a difference. Ironically, Purus Labs also mentioned other supplement companies have “confusing nutrition panels” despite including Vitamin D3 twice into this product, both on it’s own and as a component of the “Lh/Free Testosterone/Atp Amplifying Voadilatory Oxygen Sparing Matrix” which seems to play in to the problem they’re detesting.
Do to these troubles I have encountered with D-Pol, I would not recommend this product.
