What Is Anatropin?
Anatropin is an all-natural workout supplement intended to increase workout potential by stimulating the body’s production of testosterone. It is formulated specifically for men to help maximize each workout and thereby help to pack on lean muscle mass quickly. Its active ingredients are Vitamin D3 and Zinc. Its proprietary formula blend is comprised entirely of vitamins, minerals, and extracts from plants, seeds, roots and leaves. Although it is no longer sold by its original supplier, it is still available for sale on various bodybuilding websites online.
This dietary supplement is marketed to a wide range of demographics for the purposes of getting fit, building muscle, burning fat, controlling hormone levels and ramping up strength, energy and endurance. It is also marketed as a performance-enhancer for athletes who want to improve their fitness and sports performance safely, legally and naturally. It is of course also marketed to bodybuilders and weightlifters who want to get stronger and more stacked. Above all, it is designed for any man who is willing and able to put in the time, hours and training to build his ideal body.
This organic testosterone booster is manufactured by Gaspari Nutrition. Gaspari Nutrition is believed to have been founded in 1998 in the founder’s New Jersey garage. This manufacturer is very well-established in the fitness supplement industry and has offered a range of products for many years including bodybuilding supplements and other merchandise. It also claims to offer clinical research on their products. Its corporate address is listed in Norcross, GA in the United States, though it states that it does operate out of both George and Pennsylvania.
Gaspari Nutrition also offers apparel as well as products relating to weight loss, post-workout recovery, strength, performance and stacks. The founder of the company is listed as Rich Gaspari on its official website. According to the ‘about’ section, Mr. Gaspari was a top bodybuilder in the competitive world from the mid- 1980’s through the 1990’s and went on to win the very first Arnold Classic in 1989. This company describes its goal as being to develop, market and distribute “Groundbreaking innovation and research-backed products.” Its products are sold both in-store and on major fitness supplement websites.
How Anatropin Works?
According to the manufacturer, Anatropin works by actively stimulating the body’s production of testosterone while suppressing muscle-blocking hormones like estrogen. As estrogen is associated with higher subcutaneous body fat, water retention and testosterone-blocking properties, many in the bodybuilding community seek to lower estrogen levels for maximum fat-burning and muscle-building. Anatropin may also work by stimulating growth hormone levels, which some believe are essential for optimal functioning of physiological processes including muscle-building. It also contains an Aromatase inhibitor, which many weightlifters also believe helps to suppress circulating estrogen and therefore boost muscle growth.
The natural compounds contained in this formula purportedly enhances the body’s process of protein synthesis, helping to build and regenerate new muscle tissue for a lean, sculpted physique. The interaction of metabolic processes after training sessions with ramped-up amino acid availability reportedly stimulates this process further for faster, more effective muscle-building than would supposedly be possible without the tablets’ enhanced amino acid content. Some of the extracts in the formula are also widely used to sooth sore muscles and to reduce post-training cramping. This translates to more hours spent in the gym lifting harder and training longer. It also purportedly speeds up the process of myogenesis.
Users are instructed to take two pills in the morning on an empty stomach. The pills can be taken with a glass of water, with a protein shake or stacked with another protein drink to further amplify its effects. Although all of this product’s ingredients are indeed derived from nature, there is still the possibility that some users may experience an allergic reaction to the plants, roots and seeds in the formula. It may also interact with certain medications, so caution and research are both highly advised before incorporating this supplement into one’s routine. Best results are promised to men who take the tablets consistently.
Ingredients of Anatropin
This workout product’s ingredient list promises an entirely all-natural formula with no filler. Its active compounds are Vitamin D3 and Zinc. Vitamin D3 – or the ‘sunshine vitamin,’ as it is sometimes called – plays an active role in maintaining optimal muscle health. A deficiency in Vitamin D3 can also interfere with even highly fit users’ strength gains, so maintaining optimal levels is key. Other factors like physical performance and weight loss are also thought to be affected by Vitamin D3.
Velvet Bean Extract, also known as Mucuna Pruriens, is an herb that has been used for health and medicinal purposes for many years in West Africa, India and Central America. It is rich in an amino acid called L-Dopa which many believe helps reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, thus influencing the body’s ability to build lean muscle. It can also purportedly increase the production of Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which helps the body build more muscle and break down fat. Brassaiopsis Glomerulata Extract is a lesser-known formula component derived from a species of shrub that is effective in minimizing and blocking estrogen. There are some risks associated with this extract, however, as there are with any dietary aid, so research and consultation with a physician are always advised.
Another component in Anatropin’s formula blend is Anacyclus Pyrethrum DC Extract. This is an herb that appears to have some efficacy in boosting testosterone and in enhancing vitality and physical performance. Some preliminary studies have suggested it may have anabolic effects via an ability to boost testosterone levels. The other ingredients filling out its formula list are Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate, Silicon Dioxide, Titatium Dioxide and FD&C Blue #1. According to the label, it is produced in a facility that contains soy, milk, wheat and egg ingredients, so men who are allergic to any of these foods will want to strongly consider whether this is the right product for their needs.
Anatropin promises to boost workout performance and to maximize endurance. In addition, it promises to enhance lean muscle gain as well as to speed up results by enhancing workout capability. The ingredient label promises huge, extended pumps and reduced muscle soreness and cramping after workouts. It also purports to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to working muscle tissue for maximum anabolic capabilities. This product may also speed up natural protein metabolism process for further muscle gains.
Perhaps most importantly, Anatropin promises to maximal testosterone support and greater estrogen control. For bodybuilding purposes, greater testosterone levels and decreased estrogen translate to elevated strength, energy, endurance and other performance-related traits. In addition, this product may also work by increasing thermogenesis, i.e. the body’s ability to burn more fat while at both a resting and an active state. With a product that promises “maximum testosterone support and estrogen control,” users may be better able to build a harder, more defined physique in a shorter period of time.
According to the manufacturer’s website, Rich Gaspari, the founder of Gaspari Nutrition and developer of Anatropin, has been actively involved in the bodybuilding and fitness industry for more than 30 years. He was a top-level bodybuilder from the mid-1980's through the 1990's and even won the very first Arnold Classic competition in 1989. He has also won Mr. America (now known as the NPC Nationals), Mr. Universe, Professional Mr. World and is a three-time runner-up for the prestigious Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition. Since his retirement from competitive bodybuilding, Rich has devoted his energies to developing his own line of quality supplements. This experience in the muscle-building world may lend itself to better steering the research and development of higher-quality workout products.
Gaspari Nutrition makes all its products in its GMP-certified facilities operating out of Georgia and Pennsylvania. Their production facilities and warehouses total more than 500,000 square feet, which the company states is one of the largest — or perhaps the largest overall — in the industry. Gaspari also states that Rich and his entire staff back up its products and claims with real and unbiased research, espousing a commitment to purity, quality and potency.
Anatropin gives me a great energy flow that continues beyond my workout and into the evening. I feel like I even sleep better because I’m more active during the day, not to mention the fact that getting more done gives me greater peace of mind. For me, this supplement has been a win. My body is looking sleeker and more defined and my energy and mood levels have improved. I would definitely recommend this to other fit guys. – Timothy D., software designer in Pittsburgh, PA, USA
My buddy – who is a fitness model – has been using this for a few months now, and he has been looking even fitter and more ripped than he usually does. I asked him what he’s been doing differently, and he told me about this. Anatropin has given me a nice sustained energy release throughout the day, which helps me work out harder for longer. I’ve already burned five pounds, and it’s only been a matter of months. I would call my experience with this t-booster a success. – Jeffrey G., aerobics instructor in Nashville, TN, USA
What I’ve noticed most since I started stacking this stuff with my usual protein shake has been the strength gains. My pumps are more powerful than ever, which has helped me get the most out of every session because it helps me enjoy working out that much more. My wife cannot stop complimenting my new body – especially when I make a muscle! In my opinion, this is a great option for guys who train hard and want to train harder. – Jesse I., forklift operator in Seattle, WA, USA
Awards & Media Coverage
Anatropin’s manufacturer, Gaspari Nutrition, makes itself widely accessible to the public via its presence on a broad range of social media networks. It maintains profiles on sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. This testosterone booster has also received numerous reviews on bodybuilding and weightlifting sites across the internet. Its popularity has helped keep it active on the online market despite being discontinued by its manufacturer.
Gaspari Nutrition has also featured a number of pro athletes via its ‘Gaspari athletes’ section on the official website. These athletes include Robert Timms, an IFBB Classic Physique Pro; Hidetada Yamagishi, also an IFBB Pro; Bethany Wagner, IFBB Fitness Pro; and Dayna Maleton, an IFBB Bikini Pro. There are also numerous other professional bodybuilders and athletes who have been sponsored by the company. Gaspari keeps users inspired and up-to-date via its Instagram feed. The company also sponsors several fitness and muscle-building competitions, most notably the upcoming 2017 Arnold Amateur competition in Columbus, Ohio (the United States).
At this time, since Anatropin has been officially discontinued, money-back guarantees vary according to the private seller involved. Customers would be wise to check the seller’s return policy very closely to determine whether any sort of return option is available. Customers would also be well-advised to research what those return conditions are. Although some consumers may be more wary of purchasing from a private seller as opposed to the original manufacturer, the advantage is that the purchaser will not be subject to any sort of auto-enrollment policies, where the buyer is automatically signed up to be debited and shipped a new bottle every month after the initial month of purchase. Seasoned supplement users will likely view this facet (of purchasing from a private seller) as a major advantage.
According to present online research, no private seller is currently offering a trial period for this product. Although this may seem unfortunate, purchasing from a merchant with a fair money-back guarantee will likely remedy this situation. Potential customers would be wise to look for return policies that allow a full or partial refund for partially used and/or empty bottles. Then, the customer may try the product at will and still retain the option to receive their money back if it does not perform according to expectations.
Anatropin is available for resale online to any man who is interested in adding Anatropin to his daily fitness regimen. Though shipping and handling policies always, of course, vary on a merchant-by-merchant basis, this supplement is available for shipment not only in the United States but worldwide. The median shipping cost for online suppliers in the United States is currently about $7. Available carriers range from the United States Postal Service to UPS and FedEx. The availability of package tracking information – whether included with the purchase or for an additional charge – also varies according to seller.
Shipping and handling-related charges and policies may differ by country. Thus, international customers would be well-advised to contact the seller regarding any differences in pricing or policy before placing their order. Important delivery information to look for would also be whether the seller ships on weekends and/or certain holidays. The less confusion a customer experiences when knowing what to expect with their order delivery, the more satisfied all parties will be.
Although Anatropin can no longer be purchased on the Gaspari Nutrition website, the company’s customer service department is still available for any questions regarding this product. On the company website is listed a toll-free 1-888 telephone number for those who would prefer to speak with a live representative. There is also a convenient contact form for further ease of use. There is no direct customer support email address at this time. For supplement users who would like further information on this discontinued product, the manufacturer’s customer service department is a great place to start.
The company provides a physical address in Norcross, GA for written correspondence and product inquiries. This manufacturer also retains production facilities in Pennsylvania, though it does not provide that particular address. As Gaspari Nutrition also maintains an extensive presence on social media websites, this might also be an effective option insofar as getting in touch with a company representative for any inquiries.
Safe & Secure Checkout
Since, as mentioned above, Anatropin is now only available via private seller online, the safety and security of the transaction will of course vary by merchant. If purchased on a mass-market conglomerate site such as Ebay, the security level of the transaction is bound to be very high. These global online marketplaces have spent millions of dollars to make all transactions as secure as possible with very little potential for data breaches, especially considering PayPal – perhaps the safest online payment system available – is the predominant means of monetary exchange. Perhaps the biggest bonus for purchasing Anatropin through one such site is the increased security of customer information, especially in light of the fact that few online supplement suppliers accept PayPal as a method of payment.
Otherwise, it is important to make sure any website that offers this test booster is up-to-date with all safety and security technology. Trust marks such as Verisign Secured, TRUSTe, MasterCard SecureCode, Powered By Verisign and Verified By Visa are all legitimate safety seals. These seals work in a number of ways including scanning for malware, viruses, and phishing attempts as well as firewalls to detect and prevent data breaches. It is also wise to look for a seal reading ‘This site is secured by a 128-Bit Secure Connection’ or, better yet, a 256-Bit secure connection. This software ensures that sensitive customer information such as personal and credit card info, is scrambled so potential hackers cannot misuse it.
The price for a single bottle of Anatropin varies according to seller. The median online price at the time of this review is approximately $18 (USD). The price for a lot of four bottles of Anatropin is $27 plus shipping and handling, an unheard-of price in the dietary supplement industry. This particular purchase option includes both package tracking and package insurance. Though the product has been discontinued, it is still available brand new and unopened from a variety of merchants.
As with any purchase, taxes will vary according to seller policy and geographic region. Some sellers charge no taxes at all, which will likely prove to be a purchase incentive for many. It is always important to consider a number of factors before making a final purchase decision such as product price, return policy, seller history and any additional incentives the seller may offer.
