Theacrine’s (as TeaCrine®) multi-faceted effects come from the reactions
between two neural pathways: dopaminergic and adenosinergic pathways.
By affecting these major pathways and supporting other neurotransmitters, Theacrine’s (as TeaCrine®) 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, supporting dopaminergic signaling.*
Research on theacrine also indicated that the compound increases activity in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) region of the brain, associated with reward, task completion and motivation.*
Decades of scientific studies show that high dopamine levels result in perceived feelings of energy, improved mood, sensations of pleasure, increased motivation and greater mental focus and clarity.*
In addition to boosting dopamine levels, Theacrine (as TeaCrine®) its effects on dopamine signaling, it’s 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.*
