TeaCrine Powder (Theacrine)

  • Product Description

    TeaCrine Theacrine Powder

    What is Theacrine?

    Theacrine is an alkaloid structurally similar to Caffeine, and preliminary evidence suggests that it activates similar signalling pathways. The preliminary evidence also suggests less tolerance buildup with theacrine. However, the tolerance effects have not been clinically proven. It is found in the camellia assamica variant, kucha, which is from what Kucha tea is made. One study that noted stimulation with theacrine failed to find any tolerance over the course of seven days; a time frame where caffeine would normally show tolerance. This suggests that the body either does not, or may have a reduced tolerance, to theacrine.

    Theacrine vs Caffeine

    Theacrine as a Natural Caffeine Alternative

    Based on preclinical and human clinical research, theacrine benefits include:

    • Supports healthy metabolic activity and energy production*
    • Decreases physical discomfort associated with intense exercise*
    • Reduces perceived exertion from exercise*
    • Increases cellular protection through antioxidant activity*
    • Supports a positive mood and decreased feelings of stress and irritability*
    • Increases motivation to exercise and accomplish tasks*
    • Increases neural drive*

    Theacrine's Dopaminergic and Adenosinergic Activity

    Theacrine’s effects come from the reactions between two neural pathways, dopaminergic and adenosinergic pathways. By affecting these major pathways and supporting other neurotransmitters, Theacrine increases energy without irritability and enables competitive athletes, active individuals and driven professionals to enhance their physical and mental performance. As documented in an open-source scientific publication on theacrine, concentrated theacrine doses activate dopamine receptors D1 and D2, thus supporting dopaminergic signaling. Research on theacrine also indicated that the compound increases activity in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) region of the brain which is believed to support motivation and general cognitive function. Decades of scientific studies show that high dopamine levels may support feelings of energy, positive mood, sensations of pleasure, increased motivation and greater mental focus and clarity.

    In addition to its effects on dopamine signalling, Theacrine (as TeaCrine®) is also thought to inhibit adenosinergic activity. Adenosine plays an important role in biochemical processes that promote fatigue, sedation and relaxation. By inhibiting the activity of the A1 and A2a receptors, Theacrine (as TeaCrine®) may help decrease perceived feelings of fatigue making this a great option for those looking for a theacrine pre workout supplement or other theacrine bodybuilding benefits. It is believed that TeaCrine may be the best theacrine supplement for its ability to promote energy while minimizing chances of irritability. Athletes have reported that Teacrine elevated endurance and strength levels making it the best theacrine supplement for fitness-related uses. Many users have reported that TeaCrine’s dual action on activating dopamine receptors and inhibiting adenosinergic receptors helps them maintain healthy levels of focus and energy making it the best theacrine supplement for long bursts of productivity.

    Theacrine Dosage

    As a dietary supplement, take 100mg of TeaCrine Powder once daily.

    1. powerful but only when stacked with caffeine

      stack with caffeine to increase bioavailability.
      half life is longer and less tolerance/buildup as well as only the mental benefits of caffeine and not the physical.
      stack 2:1 ratio :caffeine:theacrine for best results (eg 100mg theacrine:200mg caffeine or 50mg theacrine:100mg caffeine)

    2. Slightly less potent than caffeine, mg for mg

      I think I added this to my cart on a whim to qualify for free shipping. If you're not a regular caffeine user or find yourself sensitive to it, this might give a good boost. However, for regular caffeine users I don't think there's enough of a difference.

      If I were to purchase again, I would DEFINITELY get the capsules over the powder. I don't mind weighing out powders, but what basically amounts to a caffeine alternative, not really worth the trouble. On that note, if I had capsules it seems like they might be good on the go, and would probably be preferable to caffeine pills -- but I'm really a coffee drinker above all.

    3. Don't take 100mg !

      This stuff is weird. Tastes weird and the effects standalone may suck if you don't want to be focused and lazy...
      My own exprience with it is I consume this at 10-30mg and the results were not clear...

    4. 100g of awful packed into 2g of powder

      This stuff is about 50x the price of caffeine powder... when caffeine powder was still easy to get. It also tastes _at least_ 50x as bad.

      I find the effect similar to the combination of caffeine + theanine. The peak was over within a couple of hours, after which i didn't notice additional benefits of concentration, but i did feel some continued effects (e.g. lack of desire to sleep) for another few hours.

      But that taste. It tastes like ass, but worse. And it lingers longer.

      I'm fairly sensitive to the effects of caffeine, so i mixed ~50mg of theacrine with ~5oz of orange juice, and drank it.
      Then i drank more orange juice.
      Then i drank some water.
      And more water.
      And coconut water.
      And milk.
      And at that point, the aftertaste was (still there and still terrible, but) manageable.

      Without having taken theacrine regularly, i already believe the assessment that it is not habit forming. The flavor is certainly enough to keep any eager reward centers at bay.

    5. Intérressant

      Plutôt chère mais pas mal, similaire a la caféine mais sans la dépendance.
      Bien pour travailler des heures durant.
      Bien pour le sport aussi.
      Rien d'autre a dire sur ce nootropique, pas d'effet indésirable remarqués.

    6. Similar, but more comfortable, than caffeine

      TeaCrine is structurally similar to caffeine, and pharmacologically probably works on the exact same receptor system/metabolic pathway. TeaCrine, in my experience, taken at ~100mg reliably produced a nice caffeine-like boost to motivation, attentiveness, and euphoria, but marginally weaker in each effect than caffeine. In addition, it did not produce shakiness of the extremities, as much diuretic effect, or xerostomia (dry mouth).

      In general, TeaCrine has essentially all the same effects of caffeine, but slightly weaker stimulation at the same dose, and much less noticeable negative side effects like "the jitters." It also last about 6 hours for me, as opposed to 3-4 hours of full efficacity from caffeine.

    7. Improved caffeine

      Theacrine is like a better caffeine for me. It is almost like caffeine and l-theanine, but better. I am not sure what the difference is with TeaCrine brand, but the logo looks cool. Lol on 13th Feb 2016
