Product Review: D-Stunner by Betancourt Nutrition
BY EVAN CLARK, NSCA-CPT
Betancourt Nutrition’s D-Stunner is pushing the envelope and changing the pre-workout game. Recently they have revamped their formula and have created a concentrated formula that not only gives sound pumps, energy and focus, but also helps you breath easier through the use of an oxygen potentiator. This unique addition makes D-Stunner a must try for those looking to increase their potential output in the gym and toss around some serious boulders.
The ingredient profile of D-Stunner is definitely unique. While it includes common proven components like beta alanine and creatine monohydrate, it also includes some seriously innovative ingredients.
D-Stunner contains REV-PEA, a blend of focus and energy enhancing phenylethylamines, which promotes the release of both epinephrine and norepinephrine. D-Stunner also contains 3,7-Dimethylpurine-2,6-Dione which enhances breathing capacity. This supplies your muscles with more oxygen, which means stronger more effective workouts…YEA BUDDY!
EFFECTIVENESS (Improved focus, energy, pump and breathing capacity)
The best part about D-Stunner is that is works. I breathed easier, I cranked harder, and I never felt jittery or crashed. After using D-Stunner, combined with intensive resistance training, for three weeks my numbers on the big three lifts (deadlift, bench press, back squat) were all up a minimum of 10-15lbs. While in no way was this solely caused by D-Stunner (nothing replaces hard work and dedication), the added motivation D-Stunner gave me was a huge plus.
The one downside to D-Stunner was the mixability. However, the cause of this could apparently be the GlycoCarn, which on the flipside gives you skin busting pumps. In a “who would win in a fight” scenario, a rock-solid pump definitely crushes mixability every time. I chug my pre-workouts anyway so this had little to no effect on my experience.
My experience with D-Stunner was a booming positive. D-Stunner is a magnificent pre-workout. It is different then most workouts in regards to both effects and ingredients. It works terrific, delivering solid energy, pumps and focus, but the enhanced breathing capacity caused by the oxygen potentiator in the mix was the real game-changer. D-Stunner is a MUST TRY.
