An alternate to Caffeine!?

Posted by Rexius Nutrition on

Theacrine

WHAT IS IT:

Theacrine is a small alkaloid molecule with a similar chemical structure to caffeine.

As you can see from the picture above the only difference in chemical structure is an addition of a Methyl Group (CH3) and a ketone group (=O).

HOW DOES IT WORK? Theacrine enhances physical energy by causing adenosine signaling changes like caffeine. It also acts as a dopamine antagonist by causing dopaminergic signaling, which enhances physical energy even further. In a simplistic view theacrine boosts physical and mental energy in your body by raising levels of certain neurotransmitters – like dopamine.

BENEFITS:

1. Studies have shown that when taken for seven days the body does not become acclimated to theacrine’s stimulant effects. This is the key difference between caffeine and theacrine as the human body increases tolerance levels to caffeine over a very short period of time.

2. Physical Energy/Mental Focus

3. Raises Dopamine Levels

4. Reduces Stress and Anxiety

5. Could Induce Thermogenesis and Facilitate Fat Burning

6. May Reduce Inflammation Throughout the Body

SUPPLEMENT DOSING: There is currently no standard dose quantity and frequency for theacrine, but most suggests 200 to 300 milligrams to maximize its benefits without side effects.
