Utilizes Teacrine® For Enhanced Energy
Enhances Mental Clarity
(200mg Per Serving)
NRG- Tri-Blend (Caffeine Anhydrous, Di-Caffeine Malate, Caffeine Citrate) – This caffeine blend is designed to deliver caffeine in a tri-phasic manner. What this means is the different functional attachments get metabolized at a different rate in the body after differing levels of stimulation over a longer time frame. In turn, this blend helps mitigate any crash which can be experienced by some with regular caffeine intake.*
Teacrine® Theacrine – This is the “must have” new ingredient in any fat burner now and a key driver in TENACITY. The reason is, theacrine is a nature-identical purine alkaloid with real clinical research to demonstrate its powerful effects. It’s chief effect in TENACITY is providing profound energy through both adenosinergic and dopaminergic pathways. Even better, its effects don’t wear off rapidly after using a few days like DMAA did requiring higher and higher servings to experience the same effects. TENACITY uses only the clinically reviewed and highly purified version of theacrine called Teacrine®.*
Beta Alanine – Is a naturally-occurring beta-amino acid and a component of the histidine dipeptides carnosine and anserine, as well as vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid. Structurally, beta-alanine is a hybrid between the potent neurotransmitters L-glycine and GABA, which may explain why consumers often claim to experience a caffeine-like response from it. Beta-alanine is even gaining support within the scientific community for being secondarily classified as a neurotransmitter.
When consumed as a dietary supplement, beta-alanine passes from the bloodstream into skeletal muscle via a beta-alanine and taurine transporter that’s dependent upon both sodium and chloride availability. Once it enters a skeletal muscle cell, it binds with the essential amino acid L-histidine to form the dipeptide carnosine. It may also have a unique push-and-pull relationship taurine that should be taken into account.
Your body can produce beta-alanine in at least three ways. It can be released during the breakdown of histidine dipeptides, such as carnosine or anserine, or it can be formed as a secondary byproduct of a reaction that converts L-alanine to pyruvate. Additionally, beta-alanine can be formed during digestion, when intestinal microbes remove a carbon atom from L-aspartate, releasing both beta-alanine and CO2
Taurine – This important anti-oxidant and water balance regulator has demonstrated in numerous studies to help increase endurance levels. Unfortunately, you can load this and increase muscle levels despite the fact that when training a lot gets released into the blood stream. What you can do is take acute doses before or during training to help your training levels while training. By doing this, you assist proper water movement in and out of working muscles as taurine is considered an osmolyte.
Choline Bitartrate – Choline converts to the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. Its purpose in Tenacity is to increase mental acuity and diminish any potential stimulant crashes. Acetylcholine levels can fluctuate significantly when exercising or dieting which can cause mood swings. Supplemental choline can also help support athletic performance.
N-Acetyl-Tyrosine – This simple, yet effective amino acid is a precursor to numerous neurotransmitters known to regulate mood and appetite. N-Aetyl-Tyrosine’s primary role in TENACITY is a nutritional dopamine precursor. It stacks well with stimulants known to cause a “crash” and really rounds out what researchers call the strength-duration curve. It’s a staple in many stimulant cocktails for this exact reason.*
Bitter Orange Extract (fruit)– Bitter orange has been shown to contain tyramine metabolites such as N-methyltyramine, octopamine and p-synephrine which all have stimulant properties which interact with the adrenergic receptor system.*
Schizandra Chinensis Extract (fruit)– This adaptogen has been used as a part of traditional Chinese TCM for centuries. It helps the central nervous system react stressors in a more efficient manner while also boosting mental acuity. Part of this effect is due to Schizandra’s effect on controlling blood sugar levels. High blood sugar and insulin levels can hinder mental acuity and Schizandra can help counteract those effects.*
Huperzine A 1% (huperzia serrata) – is thought to work by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase (AchE). AchE is an enzyme responsible for degrading the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. As you may already know, acetylcholine plays a significant role in memory.
In other words, Huperzia serrata boosts memory by preventing the breakdown of acetylcholine, which is an important memory boosting compound.
Researchers have observed that acetylcholine levels decline as we age, which is why many people suffer memory loss and reduced cognitive ability as they age. By inhibiting the breakdown of acetylcholine, Huperzia serrata can boost your brain’s ability to form and recall new memories.
At the same time, Huperzine A prevents oxidative stress in cholinergic neurons. The more oxidative stress a cholinergic neuron experiences, the faster it will break down.
