The folks at USP Labs claim to have done it again. Their new product Compound 20 is said to be a “hardening agent” and beta testers are raving. I will be conducting a little investigation to find out more about the ingredients, the products uses, its intended effects, and customer reviews. I am always a little skeptical of all new supplements, despite the fact that I have used and loved many USP Labs products. I’m not just some lackey who recommends everything that comes down the pipe. Here you will get a real deal, honest evaluation of Compound 20.
Compound 20 follows a string of successful products, including Jack3d, Prime, Powerful, and Anabolic Pump. While pricey, these supplements are some of the best on the market in my opinion. USP Labs customers are a veritable army of loyal subjects. Read on to learn a little bit about their current products.
Tested on the market as P-SLIN, Anabolic Pump combines two herbal ingredients to achieve glucose disposal. The lucky few genetic freaks have the ability to shuttle the majority of the carbs they take in straight to muscle cells. For the rest of us, glucose or sugar gets dumped into our fat cells or lingers in the blood threatening to cause Type 2 diabetes. Phellodendron and banaba leaf extracts (corosolic acid) coax your body to handle carbs more efficiently, soaking them up into muscle tissue, either for energy usage or storage as glycogen (ready supply of fuel).
A pre-workout product that wastes no time on useless, irrelevant, or fairy dust ingredients. Jack3d contains creatine monohydrate, beta alanine, arginine AKG, caffeine, schizandra extrat, and geranium oil extract. The result is a stimulant boost with three natural anabolic substances. Creatine fuels intense muscle contraction and speeds recovery. Beta alanine buffers lactic acid by increasing intramuscular carnosine levels. Arginine, though old school, still promotes nitric oxide production for a better pump.
Prime contains natural anabolic substances called steroidal saponins. These are natural compounds that may mimic the effects of substances like steroids, only without all the side effects. They claim that Prime is better than the banned prohormones (Andro) because it leads to sustainable gains without giving you “man boobs.” Tribulus aquaticus is one ingredient, and it stems from the same family as the ever popular tribulus terrestris. Terminalia chebula is an Ayurvedic herb included for its role as an adaptogen. Adaptogens help the body cope with physiological stress, improving recovery. Be patient with this one because not everyone “feels” it right away. From my experience, I notice strength gains and increased workout intensity within days of starting a bottle.
Powerful claims to increase GH (growth hormone) and testosterone for better workouts, faster fat loss, and increased libido. I find that it works incredibly for all of these purposes. Two herbal extracts are at work here: mucuna pruriens and chlorophytum borivilianum. Mucuna pruriens or velvet beans contain natural amounts of L-dopamine, which can increase GH production. Chlorophytum borivilianum, also known as safed musli, frees bound testosterone, increasing total free test.
