DNP was originally made as a replacement detonating
compound in TNT. When used in humans, however, DNP will raise
body temperature by interfering with mitochondria oxidative phosphorylation.
The way that this is accomplished in the body is that DNP diverts
fatty acids away from ATP production and throws them off as heat
instead. Aspirin, clenbuterol, and ephedrine all do the same thing
but to a much lower extent. This is why you feel your body temperature
rising when using these compounds.
DNP was used as a fat loss diet drug in the 1930's. There was
a 1% incidence of users developing cataracts though and since
DNP was not listed as one of the ingredients in these dieting
drugs, they were pulled from the market. The thing that makes
DNP so alluring to most bodybuilders is that it will boost your
metabolism like no other drug out there. With even a low dosage,
in the area of 3-5 mg/kg of bodyweight a day, it will rate your
metabolic rate 30%. If this dosage is continued daily, it will
raise your metabolism by 50%. At this rate you can burn about
1 lb. of fat a day. This product is very dangerous to use though.
An overdose of only 4 times the recommended one will kill you.
As far as this product raising your body temperature, it can raise
it indefinitely as well. You can die or suffer brain damage after
your body temperature goes over 104 degrees. DNP can raise your
temperature much higher than that as well. If brain damage and
death are not bad enough side effects to you, you can also suffer
irreversible liver damage and/or kidney damage as well without
even an overdose while using this product if you stay on it for
DNP is known for cutting down on T4 to T3 conversion in the liver.
For a person that is highly active and on a calorie restricted
diet, DNP will deplete ATP within a matter of days. When this
happens your body temperature will go back to normal. The only
thing you can do at this point is supplement with Cytomel (see
that page on more information) in the dosage area of about 150
mcg/day. This product is only sold as a research chemical. DNP
can be used as an insecticide so that can be a reason for purchasing
it if someone asks you. Effective Dose: For overweight individuals
with a bodyfat level over 15% the recommended dosage is between
3 - 5 mg/kg of bodyweight. For non-obese individuals with a bodyfat
level less than 15%, the recommended dosage is between 5 - 8 mg/kg
of bodyweight. In practical terms, a 200 lb. bodybuilder would
need a dosage at 8 mg/kg of bodyweight of 728 mg/day. Keep in
mind though that a dosage of 4 times this will kill you about
50% of the time. This is a very high, only 4 times the recommended
dosage. This makes DNP a very deadly substance to fuck with. Probably
the most deadly thing a bodybuilder can take. Street Price: I
have not seen this sold on the street. At some research chemical
companies it sells for as low as 500 grams for around $20.
Stacking Info: This product can be taken with Insulin for excellent
anabolic/thermogenic gains to combat the usual fat gain associated
with Insulin use.
