Check out the new version of Spartan Hard
Spartans, from a young age, were forced to grow up, harden the fu*k up, and become the elite. As it is said, we are given many things in this life for the wrong reasons. What we do with such blessings is the true test of man. Sparta Nutrition is on a mission to breed warriors that history once knew as “Spartans”. Elite, vicious, and fearless – this is Sparta and this is what being Spartan means.
Spartan Hard is the ultimate hardening prohormone on the market. Spartan Hard can help you produce lean muscle mass gains and rock hard gains – cultivating lean hard muscle mass, overall. Spartan Hard is the purest, strongest, most potent combination to effectively increase lean muscle mass and hardening effects, comparable to that of the Elite Spartans.
Spartan Hard offers the ideal composition to maximize muscle mass and hardness, with almost little to no side effects of typical prohormones like lethargy or gyno. Spartan Hard is non-aromatizing, non-methylated, anabolic, and harnesses the power of 3 supercharged compounds – Super-Ra DHEA, Super-Rb DHEA, and 2-Androstenone – to make you more chiseled than a Spartan sculpture!
Spartan Hard contains Super-Ra DHEA, Super-Rb DHEA, and 2-Androstenone, an extremely synergistic blend formulated by Sparta Nutrition to help you become chiseled and attain lean muscle mass without sacrificing any of your current composition.
What benefits can I expect from Spartan Hard?
Lean Muscle Mass
What is Super-Ra DHEA?
Super-Ra DHEA is 3-alpha-enanthoyloxy-5-alpha-androstan-17-one, which is more commonly known as Androsterone. Super-Ra DHEA is legal prohormone – commonly found in pine pollen and found naturally occurring within most mammals, excreted in urine as part of human metabolism.  
Androsterone and Epiandrosterone are extremely similar, essentially the same molecule. The main difference is that Androsterone is a 3-Alpha isomer whereas Epiandrosterone is a 3-Beta isomer. Both Androsterone and Epiandrosterone convert to stanolone, but Androsterone does not convert to estrogen, meaning that it has no estrogenic effects. That means that estrogenic effects like gyno are not possible. The main benefit of Androsterone is when it’s paired with a bulking prohormone, like Super-19 DHEA, the synergy of these compounds help reduce any possible sides.
Super-Ra DHEA, which converts to Stanolone, is very androgenic but seems to be light on sides like hair loss. Androsterone is known to increase strength, libido, endurance, and multiple studies suggest neurological effects like aggression coupled with strength.
What is Super-Rb DHEA?
Super-Rb DHEA is 3-beta-undecanoyloxy-5-alpha-androstan-17-one which is more commonly knonwn as Epiandrosterone. Epiandrosterone and Androsterone (sometimes referred to as ‘R-DHEA’) are almost identical in structure, with Epiandrosterone being the 3-beta isomer (thus why it may also be referred to as Isoandrosterone) and Androsterone being the 3-alpha isomer. It is a naturally produced metabolite of the adrenal hormone Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) by the enzyme 5a-reductase.
DHT also functions as an antagonist of estrogen which may cause gynecomastia in some men by reducing DHT levels in the body, and thus reducing DHT’s antagonism of estrogen in the body. DHT directly inhibits estrogens activity on tissues, either by acting as a competitive antagonist to the estrogen receptor or by decreasing estrogen-induced RNA transcription at a point subsequent to estrogen receptor binding. It also directly blocks the production of estrogens from androgens by inhibiting the activity of aromatase. Studies done in breast tissue showed that DHT, Androsterone, and 5alpha-Androstandione inhibit the formation of Estrone from Androstenedione.
Since many Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS), Prohormones (PH) and Designer Steroids (DS) are incapable of converting to DHT like Testosterone to fulfill the biological demands the body has while also suppressing endogenous Testosterone production and thus DHT production as well, it is extremely common to see reports of lethargy and libido crash while on cycle. This is why it is also common to see recommendations for Epiandrosterone to be used as a ‘Test Base’, because it helps mitigate lethargy and low libido by fulfilling the body’s biological demands.
It is possible that Epiandrosterone may cause some HPTA suppression, and therefore it is always recommended to run a properly planned Post-Cycle Therapy (PCT) following any prohormone containing Epiandrosterone.
What do we know about Super-Rb DHEA?
Non-Methylated/Non-Liver Toxic (Doesn’t require liver support such as TUDCA)
Dry Compound/Non-Aromatizing (Won’t convert into estrogen nor cause water retention or bloating)
Increases Energy/Combats Lethargy
Increases Muscle Hardness and Density
Increases Strength via CNS Activation
Reduces Water Weight (Leading to a drier/tighter appearance)
Excellent for Cutting/Recomping
What is 2-Androstenone?
2-Androstenone, also known as delta-2-androst-17-one and 5a-androst-2-ene-17-one, is a metabolite of DHEA and commonly found within game meat. Specifically, 2-Androstenone is a pheromone. In vivo, 2-Androstenone reacts as a prohormone would, but because delta-2-androst-17-one is a preexisting metabolite of DHEA and is also found as an Androsterone metabolite on the human skin. Ultimately, it can be called a human pheromone with prohormone like activity. In this case this pheromone converts to another pheromone, 2-androstenol – similar to a non-methylated Phera-Plex. 2-Androstenone, therefore, might be a good replacement for the older boldione compounds. Studies suggest that it is fairly mild with minimal sides and can be run for decent cycle lengths. The main highlight is the increased strength that notably comes from 2-Androstenone.
Boost Bioavailability with Spartan Hard:
Spartan Hard amplifies absorption and bioavailability with 6,7,-dihydroxybergamottin (DHB), an organic chemical compound found in grapefruit juice. The basic belief behind DHB is that it alters the metabolism, as DHB blocks the enzyme CYP3A4 – most commonly found within the liver and intestines to heighten the concentration of medication within the blood. Resultantly, you end up with enhanced bioavailability of Super-Ra DHEA, Super-Rb DHEA, and 2-Androstenone, for the maximum absorption of Spartan Hard.
Do I need Post Cycle Therapy after using Spartan Hard?
YES. A full PCT is always recommended when using Spartan Hard. We recommend the Perfect Post Cycle Therapy Stack, by Muscle Research.
I’m an athlete in organized sports, should I use Spartan Hard?
No. Using Spartan Hard to enhance athletic performance in competitive sports is morally wrong and against the rules of every known organized sport league. If you are a professional or amateur athlete subject to performance-enhancing substance testing, do not use this product unless authorized by your sanctioning body as it may yield a false reactive result for mandatory urine or blood drug tests.
