Since 2014, Inspired has been coming out with some of the most innovative products on the market to ‘fuel what inspire’s you’.

Since 2014, Inspired Nutraceuticals has been formulating some of the most innovative products on the market. They have gained fans from all around the world, but there is one issue…some countries have strict regulations on ingredients, and as a result, don’t allow certain products to be sold. So most of the world has been missing out on everything Inspired has to offer.

Inspired to the Worldwide rescue!!

It’s obvious there was a major gap in the supplement industry and a need for a killer pre workout to be available for everyone. This gap was filled by one of the best and most savvy CEOs in the industry, Chris Waldrum of Inspired. He quickly made the decision that it was time to make a change and give back to all his loyal supporters worldwide. After making a few tweaks to his infamous pre-workout, DVST8, he was able to create a globally-compliant formula without compromising on efficacious dosing, patented ingredients, or the amazing flavors we expect from Inspired. The launch of DVST8 WorldWideWideWide gave consumers from all over the world the ability to experience what a fully loaded pre workout can do for them!

DVST8 Worldwide Ingredient Analysis

DVST8 Worldwide includes 25 full servings, no half-scoops here! This formula is here to deliver everything you want in a pre workout, greater endurance, intense focus, and extreme pump. The fully-disclosed supplement facts panel is broken down into two sections, The Truth Matrix and That Prestige Worldwide Energy. This is how we will organize our analysis below so you fully understand why each ingredient was carefully included.

Here’s what a full scoop (14.2g) of DVST8 Worldwide provides:

  • The Truth Matrix

    DVST8’s “Truth Matrix” is here to bring you enhanced pumps, performance, and endurance:

    • L-Citrulline Malate (1:1) – 6g (Yielding 3g L-Citrulline)

      DVST8 Worldwide Ingredients

      Just look at that supplement facts panel, five core trademarked ingredients to kick start your workout!

      In order to give you a boost in performance, enhanced blood flow to the working muscle is a must. L-citrulline is here to do just that by boosting nitric oxide, resulting in increased arginine levels and vasodilation of the blood vessels.[1]

      Once L-citrulline enters the body it gets converted to arginine by the kidneys, so it’s better at boosting arginine levels then L-arginine supplementation alone.[1] L-citrulline, L-arginine and L-ornithine are three amino acids used in the urea cycle, which is a crucial system in the body that helps get rid of ammonia, a toxic metabolic waste product. L-citrulline consumption results in greater levels of ornithine and arginine in the blood which increases ammonia recycling and nitric oxide production.

      Likely due to the above mechanisms, studies show that citrulline malate supplementation can increase anaerobic performance and decrease muscle soreness.[2]

      1:1 ratio for 3g clinical citrulline yield

      Although not specified on the label, we believe there is a 1:1 ratio of citrulline to malate, yielding 3g of pure L-citrulline. We are happy with that dose since it’s been clinically studied for effectiveness.[1,2]

    • Betaine Anhydrous – 2.5g

      Betaine Benefits

      The placebo effect was strong with this group (in Cholewa’s study discussed below).[12] But… the real gains obliterated placebo in due time!

      DVST8 Worldwide packs a full clinical dose of betaine anhydrous to ensure you’re reaping all the performance boosting benefits this ingredient has to offer. Betaine (trimethylglycine) is an amino acid composed of glycine and three methyl groups. It can be found in several foods such as spinach, whole grains, and beets.

      In terms of increasing workout performance, a study from 2013 found 2.5g/day of betaine supplementation for 6 weeks improved body composition, arm size, bench press work capacity and overall power.[3] All benefits associated with betaine supplementation are due to its ability to donate a methyl group to homocysteine ultimately forming methionine, a precursor to creatine synthesis.[3] Betaine also increases the amount of S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), an additional methyl donor that further leads to greater homocysteine metabolism.[4]

      Needless to say this is a great ingredient dosed properly to enhance power output!

    • Arginine Nitrate (NO-3T) – 1.5g


      The Machine is licensing this ingredient from ThermoLife International and it’s a whopper

    • To help you get a greater pump, DVST8 Worldwide includes arginine nitrate, trademarked as NO-3T, one of the strongest pump inducers on the market! This ingredient is meant to synergistically work with citrulline malate to enhance blood to the working muscles by causing more vasodilation and nitric oxide production.[5] The binding of arginine to nitrate reduces the chance of building a nitrate tolerance and increases bioavailability.[5] Therefore, the first scoop will work just as well as the last, to give you insane pumps!

      With the combination of citrulline and the arginine nitrate bond, we have three potent nitric oxide enhancers working together. If you don’t get a pump off of this, it’s time to check the diet and training plan!!

    • PeakO2 – 1g

      PeakO2 Ingredients

      PeakO2 has six different mushroom species, but the primary one is Cordyceps Militaris

      PeakO2 was developed by a well-known ingredient supplier, Compound Solutions, and it’s starting to make its way into several sports supplements. PeakO2 is an adaptogenic blend of six organic medicinal mushrooms including Cordyceps (Cordyceps Militaris), Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), King Trumpet (Pleurotus eryngii), Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus), and Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor).

      PeakO2 is intended to help you adapt to physical and mental stress in order to boost performance, endurance, and power. It can increase overall work capacity by enhancing oxygen utilization and decreasing lactate build-up.[6]

      In 2015, a research study done by the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill found that 1.3g of PeakO2 taken 3x/day for three weeks greatly improved participants’ time to exhaustion, power output, and VO2 Max compared to the placebo group.[6] Although, there is only 1g included in this formula, you may still see a boost in performance over time.

      Now let’s jump into the ingredients that will boost your energy and focus!

  • That Prestige Worldwide Energy: intense focus and long-lasting stamina…

    • Choline Bitartrate – 500mg

      Inspired DVST8 and Amino

      The dynamic duo that will help you crush your workout!

      With vegan and vegetarian diets becoming more widespread, choline deficiency is on the rise. Major sources of choline are found in meats, seafood, and eggs, thus eliminating those foods make it nearly impossible to get an adequate amount of choline from your diet. This can lead to several health issues because choline is essential for ensuring proper cell functioning.

      For increasing focus and mental alertness, choline serves as a precursor to help synthesize one of the most important neurotransmitters found in the body, acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is crucial for memory, mood and establishing a good mind-muscle connection.

    • L-Tyrosine – 500mg

      L-Tyrosine was included in this formula to further increase focus and prevent excessive mental fatigue. Supplementing with L-tyrosine, a non-essential amino acid, unsurprisingly helps increase the body’s tyrosine levels. A greater amount of tyrosine enables the body to synthesize more catecholamine neurotransmitters found in the body such as epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine that can get depleted during exercise. As a result, this can lead to reduced stress, improved mood, and a boost in cognition.

      500mg is not a whopping dose, but it is the dose where we typically begin to “feel” the ingredient.

    • Natural Caffeine (From Green Tea) – 300mg

      Inspired Athlete

      What’s your purpose? Be inspired.

      What’s better than a great dose of caffeine to get you energized for a killer workout!

      Instead of adding a synthetic source of caffeine typically found in most pre workouts, DVST8 Worldwidewidewide opts for using natural caffeine derived from green tea. Natural caffeine typically is not alone, it’s accompanied by trace vitamins and methylxanthines to help avoid the dreaded “crash” or jitters that comes with ingesting a large dose.[7] In addition, natural caffeine acts as an adrenergic agonist so it stimulates the production of epinephrine in order to improve mood, energy, mental focus, and delay fatigue.

      This source of caffeine should give you a smooth and steady increase in energy that will carry you through that grueling training session, and the dose is right on the money too – especially with another few stimulatory ingredients to come!

    • Advantra-Z 20%(Citrus Aurantium Fruit) – 200mg

      Let the fat burning and energy production begin!

      Advantra-Z is an extract of the fruit citrus aurantium, also known as bitter orange, and its primary protoalkaloid p-synephrine.[8] It contains indirect-acting adrenergic amines that stimulate metabolic processes such as lipolysis, accelerate utilization of energy substrates, and favors amino acid uptake into the muscle.[8] This patented ingredient is designed to aid fat-burning by amplifying thermogenesis, suppressing appetite, and improving lean muscle mass.[9]

      In addition with caffeine, Advantra-Z will lead to greater metabolism and energy expenditure, helping you reach you composition goals faster.[8]

    • Methylliberine – 125mg (as Dynamine40% Yielding 50mg)

      Dynamine Supplement

      Dynamine goes beyond pre workout supplements. Prepare for energy drinks and mood boosters infused with the ingredient as well!

      You can tell that Inspired is a fan of using Compound Solutions with the inclusion of another one of their ingredients, Dynamine.

      Dynamine is methylliberine, an alkaloid found in kucha tea leaf and acts similarly to caffeine. This ingredient may raise mood, energy, and focus through activation of dopamine receptors. Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter involved in feelings of pleasure, reward, and motivation.

      One key feature of Dynamine, is that it does not raise heart rate or blood pressure, which is a major problem with high caffeine consumption. Therefore instead of adding a ton of caffeine alone, pairing Dynamine with it helps avoid the negative side effects often experienced.

    • Theobromine – 50mg

      Theobromine is naturally found in the cacao plant as a bitter alkaloid.[10] It acts as a stimulant comparable to caffeine, but while caffeine works primarily on the brain, theobromine has various actions elsewhere in the body. Theobromine’s energy-boosting effects are milder and longer-lasting than caffeine. It can also cause bronchodilation, ultimately increasing airflow into the lungs.

      Theobromine’s primary mechanisms of action are inhibition of phosphodiesterases and blockage of adenosine receptors.[10] Adenosine is a CNS neuromodulator and it causes neural activity to slow down, which is great prior to sleep but terrible for a workout. By blocking adenosine from attaching to its receptor, you stay more alert and energized.

    • KannaEase – 25mg

      DVST8 Flavor Stack

      Globally compliant formula with epic flavors!

      Last but not least, another patented ingredient, KannaEase rounds out this epic formula. This ingredient is intended to help ease stress and anxiety, ensuring you stay calm and dialed in during every training session. If you’re worried 300mg of caffeine is a little too much, KannaEase is here to take the edge off!

      It is an extract from the Sceletium tortuosum herb (also known as Kanna) that was historically chewed on before entering stressful events.[11] KannaEase serves as a phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor which creates an increase in a second chemical messenger found inside the cell, cAMP.[11] This allows you to have improved mood and better able to deal with stress.[11]

      This dose won’t put you to sleep, it will work synergistically with the other energy boosting ingredients to make sure you get fired up but still remain locked in!

Flavors Available

Below you can find an updated list of DVST8 Worldwide’s flavors:

    At the time of publishing this article, Mike and Ben have only tasted Sour Yummies and Malibu Breeze, but both were incredibly impressive. You can watch the review video embedded at the top of this article — Sour Yummies is definitely very sour, and Mike preferred Malibu Breeze.

    Chris Waldrum and the team at Inspired were able to do something most companies can’t: mask the flavor of some unpleasant tasting ingredients! If you’re more of a sour candy lover, Sour Yummies is the way to go! However for something sweet Malibu Breeze is hard to beat. Don’t worry about choosing a flavor because you can’t go wrong with any of them, Inspired never disappoints!

    DVST8 Galaxy Pop
