What’s Next For Pre-Workouts After the DMHA Ban


Not all stimulants are created equal; some provide a clean energy and focus while others can cause jitters, a feeling of anxiety and a crash. However, it seems as soon as a good one hits the market, it tends to be banned as quickly as it emerged.
So with the most recent ban of DMHA, DMBA and all other Alkylamines, where do we turn? What’s next for the industry and how will the stimulant category hold up?
Luckily for us, there is a diverse range of choices when looking to develop powerful, hard hitting stimulant products that provide clean energy without the negative effects associated with some stimulant forms.
Ingredients such as Theacrine (Teacrine®), Kuding Extract (Dynamine®), Juniper Berry (AMPiberry®) and Eria Jarensis extract seem to be the big four to look out for. These ingredients are slowly building credibility and interest from companies and users in light of the ban, due to the similar properties and effectiveness when used correctly.

Each ingredient provides great benefits in combination with caffeine. When dosed and used correctly, they can deliver smooth, strong and concentrated energy that makes up for the loss of our old favorites. So lets break down the positives of each ingredient and the benefits it will provide.

Theacrine (Teacrine®):

Theacrine is an alkaloid molecule with a similar structure to caffeine. For the most part, it parallels the mechanisms and effects caffeine provides. The real point of interest with Theacrine is that it seems the body does not build up a tolerance over time as it usually would with caffeine. This means we don’t need to over-stimulate the body by continuously increasing the dose to feel its stimulatory effects.

Kuding Extract (Dynamine®):

Kuding extract possesses both adrenergic and dopaminergic qualities, allowing it to be active in the body for longer periods without a crash. Being adrenergic means increased energy, focus, alertness and fat liberation for energy. Being dopaminergic allows it to elevate motivation, determination, drive and a sense of wellbeing and pleasure. It is also has a nootropic quality allowing increases in cognition, mental focus, memory and overall performance. It is a well balanced stimulant that provides clean energy and fights fatigue, all while increasing physical and metal performance.

Juniper Berry (AMPiberry®):
Juniper Berry extract is a unique ingredient that has the ability to increase the effectiveness and uptake of caffeine in the body, supercharging smaller doses for more beneficial results. It has also been shown to reduce inflammation and flush unwanted, excess fluid from the body. Increasing the effectiveness of caffeine can allow us to get just as much kick out of a smaller dose, preserving the adrenals and reducing the need to build up to higher doses. Juniper Berry will make a product more potent and hard hitting while reducing stress on the body as we can maximize effects of caffeine while keeping intake low.

Eria Jarensis:

Eria Jarensis extract is a neuromodulator on the central nervous system that will help to improve cognitive function and overall sense of wellbeing. By increasing levels of dopamine and noradrenaline in the body, we can enhance levels of alertness, concentration, mood and mental focus. Eria Jarensis is known to provide a sense of euphoria and good feeling, improving our ability to perform both mentally and physically inside and outside the gym.

As you can see, not all hope is lost; there is a light at the end of the tunnel and good direction for the stimulant market moving on from the ban. Some of these ingredients may even become people’s new favorites to utilize now and for years to come. ­­
