  • Yohimbine Safety – What does the science say?

    Yohimbine is an energizing and metabolism-boosting supplement derived from the Yohimbe tree. It increases levels of adrenaline in the body and inhibits an enzyme in cells that normally suppresses fat burning. It is often used as an aphrodisiac because of its effects on vitality. It is also sometimes used as a wakefulness-promoting supplement.[1]

    Clinical studies have found that Yohimbine is effective as an aphrodisiac and energizing supplement that is generally well-tolerated. [2] [3] The serving size used in studies is generally around 5 mg, taken once to four times daily. At this amount, the benefits of Yohimbine generally outweigh the mild side effects experienced by some participants.[4]

    However, when taken at larger servings, Yohimbine presents a number of concerning side effects. Not only this, but it has been found to interact with numerous medications and to aggravate a number of medical conditions. As a result, it is important that anybody using Yohimbine be aware of the potential adverse effects associated with it.

  • What is Agmatine Sulfate and What Does it Do?

    Agmatine is amazing! But what is it, really!?

    This fascinating neurotransmitter has been used in research for pain-relief, cognitive enhancement, and anti-inflammation studies and is prized by many bodybuilders for its pre-workout abilities.[1] It was first discovered by a German scientist called Albrecht Kossel, in 1910 – but it took over 100 years for researchers to figure out what it actually does! [2]

    In the human body, Agmatine is made from the amino acid, L-arginine. It is also a product of bacterial metabolism so it can be found in a number of fermented foods, including wine, beer, sake, tofu, and soy sauce.[3] Although it is found in the brain, the comound is actually produced mostly by gut bacteria.[4]

    Agmatine is a neurotransmitter, which means that it helps signals to pass between nerve cells in the central nervous system.[5] Other well-known neurotransmitters include acetylcholine, serotonin, and GABA. As a neuromodulator, Agmatine interacts with many different neurotransmitter systems in the brain.[6]

    In the United States, this compound is not regulated by the FDA and is available as a dietary supplement. The neurotransmitter itself is a little unstable, which is why Agamatine is sold in the sulfate form. This helps to allow for easier storage and a longer shelf-life and may help to improve its efficiency.

  • This Is Why We're Starting Our Day With Caffeine and Theanine

    Do you know the story about Kaldi the Ethiopian goatherd? Legend has it, over a thousand years ago, Kaldi, an observant Abyssinian goatherd, took note of the berries that his goats were eating with such enthusiasm.

    origins-of-coffeeBeing an adventurous young man, Kaldi decided to try the berries himself. To his delight, the berries made him feel elated and energized. He filled his pockets with them and took them to his tribe’s chief monk.

    He and the monk tried cooking the berries in a pot. But, the resulting drink was the most bitter brew they had ever tasted. Disgusted, the monk threw the berries into the fire – roasting the world’s first coffee beans! The two smelled the delicious aroma coming off the fire, and coffee was born.[1]

    Today, coffee is the second most consumed drink in the world (second only to tea), and the world’s most prevalent stimulant.[2] But, as we all know, it has its drawbacks. Aside from the mental focus, mood enhancement and energizing effects, coffee can make you jittery, give you sweaty palms, a racing heart, a headache, and – worst of all – it can make you feel anxious.[3]

    Enter L-Theanine…
