Enpulse is a libido and testosterone boosting product produced in Illinois, USA, by Rivalus. The company produce and market a number of other health and fitness products, and recent changes mean many people will have to re-evaluate their supplements. In July 2014, Rivalus announced via their blog they’d made some improvements to their manufacturing process and updated the product packaging as well. In the case of Enpulse the old-style white bottle placed inside a blue cardboard box has been replaced by a black and orange bottle that matches the rest of their range.
It appears Enpulse has also scrapped the original formulation that consisted of 25 ingredients and replaced it with a much simpler formulation that contains just five ingredients. This means many of the old customer reviews that praise or bash Rivalus Enpulse may be irrelevant with respect to the new formula. Also, it appears a lot of suppliers have dropped Enpulse from their stores. This might be the long process of changing the stock, or perhaps they don’t make the cut anymore.
What is Enpulse and what does it Do?
Enpulse contains ingredients chosen for their alleged ability to boost testosterone levels, increase the sex drive, and improve sexual performance. The Enpulse sales page on the manufacturer’s website only consists of two short sentences with not much meat to the claim.
The marketing copy can be summarized as:
- Libido & testosterone booster
- Enhance natural testosterone levels
- Reduce estrogen production.
- Increase sex drive and performance
Four capsules provide:
- Eurycoma Longifolia (3200mg): There’s not much clinical evidence to back up Longjack as an out and out T booster but empirical evidence suggests the libido boost may serve to provide both the sex drive and the training aggression. A lot of bodybuilders like it and use it regularly. Others say it doesn’t do anything for them.
- Tribulus Terrestris (1000mg): Tribulus Terrestris’ abilities as a testosterone booster have been studied on a number of occasions and the results are not conclusive. In one study, conducted in Lithuania, researchers gave athletes 625mg of the compound three times a day for 20 days and their circulating testosterone levels increased significantly for the first 10 days only. No further rises were recorded for the rest of the study. In another study, conducted at Southern Cross University Australia), rugby players were given tribulus terrestris and monitored while they did resistance training. After 5 weeks the men who had received tribulus terrestris each day failed to show any increases in strength, fat free mass, or any other benefits that were superior to the placebo group. Again though, Trib has split the pack in terms of loyal followers and rejecters.
- Avena Sativa (400mg): Although Avena Sativa may have the ability to reduce stress levels the many claims that it can boost testosterone levels may just be colourful exaggeration of the libido enhancing qualities. Avena Sativa can also be called oats, as in ‘sowing your wild oats.’
- Milk Thistle (400mg): Milk thistle has a good reputation for improving liver health, and may offer other benefits. Often companies will add Milk Thistle to T boosters to make it seem like the supplement is powerful like a steroid. Otherwise they are adding it simply to help cleanse the liver, which would be the less cynical viewpoint.
- MACA (400mg): During a 12-week study conducted at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (Peru), the men who were given daily doses of MACCA failed to show an increase in their testosterone levels, but the researchers did log improved levels of sexual desire. As mentioned libido boosters are touted as T boosters because the feeling of increased vitality is similar
How to Use Rivalus Enpulse
Capsules should always be taken with 16oz. of water and be used in conjunction with resistance training three to five days per week. The recommended dosage is four capsules taken at once each day.
Enpulse is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. Anyone who has any health issues or concerns should seek medical advice before taking Enpulse or any other form of supplement.
Customer feedback for the old formulation was very good and talk about Enpulse generated a positive buzz on many bodybuilding forums. It is not known how well the present formula performs because nobody seems to have anything to say, but potential buyers need to make sure any customer testimonials they do find refer to the present formula rather than its popular predecessor.
Rivalus Enpulse Pros & Cons at a Glance
|The Pros||The Cons|
|Widely used libido boosters||Seems to be a step away from original recipe|
|Good safety record of ingredients||Not easily accessible|
|Limited product info||No out and out T booster like D-AA|
Although GNC used to stock the Enpulse it is no longer offered for sale via their website. Many other suppliers have stopped selling the product as well so the easiest option is probably to purchase via the Rivalus online store, but the company only appears to ship to addresses in the US and Canada.
Australians, British and European people will have to figure out another way.

Expect to pay $59 to $69 (depending on if a promotion is available), but don’t expect your money back if the product fails to work because Enpulse is sold without a guarantee.
