What is DNP?


Imagine that every action you take burns away 11 – 33% more energy than you would typically burn on your own. The number of calories you would burn away would be staggering. That’s the power of DNP.

Here’s how it works.

DNP lowers the rate that cellular mitochondria are able to produce ATP or the body’s primary usable energy source. This effect is known as uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation.

The process of converting glucose from food into usable energy, or ATP, is known as cellular respiration. During the final phase, where the majority of ATP is produced, DNP interferes with the production by preventing the absorption of phosphate molecules into the mitochondria. This forces the body to work harder, all the while producing less.

DNP promotes the leakage of H+ ions from the mitochondria, resulting in an increase of heat. This shift in the proton electrochemical gradient, along with the inefficient production of ATP results in rapid consumption of calories.

Let’s look at an example to demystify this process. Let’s say you eat a lunch that consists of 1,000 calories. With DNP at work in your system, your body will be unable to use these calories as energy. Instead, it will be expelled from your body in the form of heat.  

You’ll often hear stories of people “burning up” from using DNP. Those who are unprepared for this sudden influx of heat will often panic, assuming that they may have overdosed. This is just an unfortunate side effect of taking DNP.

It has been suggested that a zero-carbohydrate diet will greatly reduce this feeling of overheating. However, this has not been confirmed by official sources. It has also been suggested that the more carbs you ingest while DNP is active in your system, the more heat you will experience as energy is released from your body. This information is also unconfirmed.

Regardless, you should experience a significant loss of weight in a relatively short amount of time. There have been many reports of fast results a week or two after taking DNP.

History of DNP

2,4 Dinitrophenol was first used by the French in the manufacturing process of munitions during the First World War. Soon after, it was discovered that DNP was a multifaceted chemical that had a number of uses that included: herbicide, dye, wood preserver, and as a photographic developer.

It wasn’t until 1933 that Maurice Tainter discovered that consumption of DNP resulted in significant weight loss in humans. After this revelation, DNP was marketed as a safe non-prescription over-the-counter weight loss medication.

At the time, scientists didn’t have an in-depth understanding of DNP and its effects when ingested. What was known was that DNP caused a significant increase in the basal metabolic rate. Clinical studies reported weight loss of 1.5 kg per week “without significant side effects.”

Further studies revealed that only a small dosage of DNP was needed to fall within a therapeutic range. An overdose, however, was discovered to be hazardous. The study also noted that there was a baseline metabolic increase of 11% per 100 mg ingested. This means DNP users would require 11% more calories than average to maintain a consistent weight.

Regardless, information about DNP was still severely lacking in those days, and reports of significant side effects and deaths due to both unintentional and intentional overdoses led to the chemical being labeled as “not fit for human consumption” by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938.

From this point onward, DNP was no longer offered as a medical prescription. Decades later, it would come back into prominence when a physician named Dr. Bachynsky began processing industrial DNP into tablets that he began to sell under the name “Mitcal” from his private weight loss clinic in Texas.

Unfortunately, Dr. Bachynsky would further sully the reputation of DNP through his actions. Court proceedings revealed that he treated more than 14,000 patients; many of whom reported adverse side effects that included sweating, shortness of breath, and fever. A single fatality in 1984 was reported due to the use of “Mitcal.”

Dr. Bachynsky was jailed in 2008 for fraud, but the damage had already been done. A new warning was issued that DNP was “not fit for human consumption,” further shaping perceptions that DNP was to be avoided at all costs.

DNP currently exists in a grey area in the law. 2,4 Dinitrophenol is illegal for human consumption. However, you can legally possess DNP. As such, it’s important to note Real DNP does not sell DNP for human consumption. We merely encapsulate our DNP for the sake of premeasurement.

Regular 2, 4 dinitrophenol is an igniting and therefore dangerous to ship. Our DNP is chemically stable and certified to be safe to transport. This keeps our mail systems safe. Other vendors do not ship a variant of DNP that is safe to transport. This increases the chances of your package being seized.

Choose wisely- regular DNP is illegal to ship unless they follow DOT Hazmat regulations (they don’t, its to costly to ship that way).

Additional Potential Benefits of DNP

The primary benefit of DNP is its ability to burn away fat quickly. However, you may not be aware that DNP has a wide variety of lesser-known potential benefits.

  1. DNP can have a positive effect on liver disease

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is an affliction that lays the groundwork for a wide range of disorders and diseases (take cancer, for example). A study performed on rats showed that a time-released DNP pill (12 – 24 hrs) was able to reduce liver lipids by up to 90%. While more studies are needed before any conclusions can be drawn, the current research looks promising.

  1. DNP can potentially help with diabetes

People who have diabetes generally build up a resistance to insulin. In a study involving a rat model, DNP boosted the specimen’s sensitivity to insulin. Hopefully, this research can be further pursued to explore DNP’s impact on individuals with diabetes further.

  1. DNP may have a beneficial effect on age-related neurological disorders

A study conducted in a rat model that suffered from an ischemic stroke revealed that DNP use lessened the impact volume, reducing the overall damage brought on by the stroke. Though more research is needed, the implications point towards a positive correlation between DNP use and the reduction of impairments brought on by strokes.

Another study on a mouse model revealed that DNP might have a beneficial effect on Huntington’s disease, an inherited disease that gradually attacks nerve cells over time. It was noted that DNP use reduced the oxidative stress brought on by Huntington’s Disease and improved motor function.

  1. DNP can protect mitochondria from Reactive-Oxygen Species (ROS) mediated cell death

An experiment conducted on an animal subject revealed that mitochondrial uncoupling, brought on by the use of DNP, can protect mitochondria from Reactive-Oxygen Species (ROS) mediated cell death by expelling energy from the body through the process of uncoupling. If this process did not occur, the energy would instead stay contained within the mitochondria, which could lead to damage.

Side effects

There’s no getting around the fact that users will experience a range of side effects while using DNP. While it’s likely, you’ll experience some form of the more common side effects, if you experience any of the extreme side effects listed below visit an emergency room right away.

Common side effects include: sweating, higher oxygen intake, increased heart rate, high body heat. Extreme side effects such as cardiovascular failure and cataracts are rare but occur in an overdose or prolonged use.

Be mindful that you will experience some of these side effects as a normal part of DNP usage. One of the downsides of DNP is that side effects are generally uncomfortable.

The standard advice online is to properly titrate until you can comfortably take a dose of 200 – 400 mg a day with a cool-down period after two weeks of usage. Your dosage can vary depending on your body type, levels of fitness, and other factors. Therefore, we cannot definitively provide a recommended dosage.

With that being said, most instances of success are met when users take low dosages of DNP for extended periods, as opposed to larger dosages for shorter periods (which could lead to great bodily harm or death).

Who Uses DNP?

DNP is widely popular in the bodybuilding community due to its ability to trim down fat but maintain muscle mass. With that being said, popularity of the drug is growing amongst the general population.

As we cannot control how you will use DNP, it’s important to note that most fatalities occur from overdosing. This brings up two issues that you should be aware of:

  1. Choose your vendor with care

Because DNP safety regulations are lax at best, there are no best practices in place to safely govern how DNP is measured when encapsulated. While you may think you’re ingesting a 250 mg DNP capsule, you may find yourself in hot water if the dosage was incorrectly measured by the vendor.

At Real DNP, we go to great lengths to ensure our measurements are right every time. We understand that one miscalculation could lead to serious harm. Thus, we take extra care to ensure our products (DNP capsules 100mg/250mg) are measured accurately before being sold to the public

Frankly, there are multiple definitions for the term “dosing,” but for the purposes of this article, we will refer to dosing as the act of slowly increasing or decreasing a drug or chemical (such as DNP) over the course of time.

Dosing is a practice regularly used in the bodybuilding community, and while it may be safe to dose other types of drugs, it is dangerous to change your dosage of DNP. Even a slight overdose could lead to fatal consequences.

There have been several instances where individuals seeking fast results took twice the dosage of DNP despite knowing the risks. Sadly, many of these individuals did not survive the experience.

We cannot express how important it is to take small dosages if you intend on using DNP.
