L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that improves focus and helps to relieve the stress of training by reducing cortisol production. L-Tyrosine is a nutrient precursor for most of the brain’s dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. When you increase your brain neurotransmitters, tyrosine can help increase attention, fight fatigue in endurance levels, reduce reaction time and increase blood concentrations.†
L-Tyrosine has been shown to effectively improve cognition in the presence of an acute stressor, typically high intensity exercise such as bodybuilding or CrossFit. In particular, L-Tyrosine can acutely increase the production of noradrenaline and dopamine contributing to an increase in attention and cognitive performance†
L-Tyrosine can assist in improving cognitive performance and reducing the perception of stress during acute exercise, allowing you to train and compete harder for longer.†
TeaCrine is a supplement that contains pure theacrine. Theacrine is a naturally-occurring substance that has regularly been compared to caffeine. You can find theacrine in nature in a variety of places, including many teas and coffees that humans regularly consume, as well as in the seeds of several plants, including Herrania and Theocrama.
Theacrine is an alkaloid, and its molecule is actually structured similarly to the caffeine molecule. Because of their similar structures, caffeine and TeaCrine are believed to activate the body in similar ways. Experts believe that they can both boost positive effects in the body, like increased energy and better focus, and people who consume TeaCrine have been known to experience a tangible increase in vitality and alertness.
One of the main benefits of TeaCrine is that it provides an energy boost to anyone who takes it. When taken as part of a pre-workout, TeaCrine delivers an overall sense of increased energy and vitality.†
Research shows that people who take TeaCrine can experience an increase in the amount of physical energy they are able to expend. They also experience reduced physical fatigue. This means that they are able to push themselves harder during workouts and last longer, so they can experience and overall improved physical performance.†
Similar to caffeine, TeaCrine has been shown to increase the amount of alertness in people who take it. This means that if you take TeaCrine, you may experience a feeling of wakefulness, as well as increased concentration.†
Huperzine A is an extract from the plant Huperziaserrata, known less formerly as firmoss, or Chinese club moss. It is a potent brain booster that can promote better focus, enhanced memory, and even boost mood to the point of a mild euphoric effect.
Huperzine-A has the ability to quickly and effectively cross the blood-brain barrier preventing AChE from decreasing acetylcholine levels. By having more acetylcholine available, nerve impulses to the muscles are faster and better synchronized, and can better withstand fatigue. This results in stronger muscle contractions and less central nervous system fatigue, meaning you are stronger in the gym and can maintain that strength for longer.†
Taken as part of your pre-workout supplement, Huperzine-A may help to increase cognitive performance and muscular endurance, while suppressing fatigue during training.†
