If you're confused about Dynamine™ and TeaCrine® and how they can benefit you, this blog post is for you!
Both Dynamine™ and TeaCrine® are created by Compound Solutions, one of the market leaders for safe, effective and innovative ingredients.
Another ingredient in our range created by Compound Solutions is PeakO2®.
What is Dynamine™?
Dynamine™ is a trademarked form of Methylliberine (2-methoxy-1,7,9 Tetramethyluric acid) which is a chemical cousin of caffeine.
Naturally methyliberine is found in kucha tea and is also naturally occurring in numerous coffee species.
Dynamine™ has been reported in preliminary human studies by test subjects to improve energy, mood and focus (EMF) around 10-15 minutes after ingesting, making it a fast acting, harder hitting relative in the caffeine family.
Structurally, Dynamine™ has a relatively short half-life, with the increased feeling of energy and focus tailing off around the 2.5 hour mark.
What is TeaCrine®?
Theacrine (1,3,7,9-tetramethyluric acid) is also a chemical cousin of caffeine, however unlike Dynamine, TeaCrine® provides long-lasting energy, mood and focus.
TeaCrine® is a patented form which contains a highly concentrated level of pure Theacrine (99%). Like Dynamine™, TeaCrine® is also found in kucha tea and also coffee robusta.
We mentioned Dynamine™ having a short half-life, well TeaCrine® has a much longer half-life, around 20 hours in fact. This means it's effects are incredibly long lasting and when combined with caffeine, this can provide long lasting energy, focus and mood enhancement.
Another benefit of the extended half-life of TeaCrine® is it's ability to reduce the post-workout "crash" which you can feel after ingesting a high amount of caffeine (usually 300-350mg). The TeaCrine® can "smooth off" the caffeine, as mentioned, giving you longer lasting energy.
What are the benefits of combining Dynamine™ and TeaCrine®?
As previously stated, Dynamine™ provides fast acting energy with a shorter half-life, while TeaCrine® provides long-lasting energy with a longer half-life.
As they are so chemically similar, when taken alongside caffeine, the effects are really noticeable. With the combination of caffeine, Dynamine™ and TeaCrine®, you're getting the best of fast and delayed acting energy.
From our experience and the reports from our EFECTIV Athlete team, the energy and focus enhancement is quite impressive. This is also backed up by research, as shown on the below table showing the results of a study on 12 healthy human participants.
Where can I find Dynamine™ and TeaCrine® together?
