Divanil (3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran)

Divanil (aka 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran, aka DVTHF) is an extract from the stinging nettle root (Urtica dioica). DVTHF exerts its effects by acting on testosterone transport proteins.

Testosterone in the human body exists either in a free circulating form or in inactive form bound to transport proteins. The transport proteins to which testosterone binds are albumin and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG).

DVTHF binds with very high affinity to SHBG. It's hypothesized that by binding to SHBG, DVTHF will increase the concentration of free testosterone. Due to the anabolic nature of testosterone, a higher concentration of free testosterone should translate into enhanced exercise performance manifested by an increase in muscle mass and strength.

Also, it's hypothesized that DVTHF might positively influence body composition by increasing muscle mass and reducing body fat levels. This positive influence on muscle tissue is due to the higher rate of protein synthesis that occurs due to more availability of free testosterone binding to the androgen receptors on skeletal muscle tissue. Studies have shown that DVTHF binds to SHBG, however no studies have been conducted to show that more free testosterone will be available.
