TeaCrine® (Theacrine) is known for providing energy and focus, similar to caffeine, without many of the negative side effects associated with the stimulant. In fact, TeaCrine is technically not a stimulant and unlike caffeine, TeaCrine can decrease anxiety.
Theacrine has the ability to elevate levels of dopamine in the brain, which can in turn increase overall mood and may have stress relieving properties. Studies also show that theacrine may also acutely decrease inflammation.
Theacrine users can also expect no desensitization with the product overtime. Unlike caffeine, there is no tolerance build up with theacrine and can continue use without experiencing a decrease in effectiveness over time.
Recommended dosage for Theacrine is generally 1 capsule one to two times daily.
Mode of Action
Theacrine’s mode of action is produced by synergistic reactions between dopaminergic and adenosinergic pathways. By affecting these important pathways and supporting other neurotransmitters, TeaCrine can increase energy production and mental performance.
Results of an acute toxicity test showed that the LD50 of theacrine was 810.6 mg per kg of body weight.
TeaCrine works with the body’s natural metabolic processes to deliver energy, increase mental clarity, and improve motivation and mood.

TeaCrine has a multi-pronged effect that is ideal for driven professionals, athletes, and anyone striving to attain peak performance. Based on preclinical and human clinical research, TeaCrine enhances the mind/muscle connection, which improves a wide range of functions in the body, including:
• Increased energy production
• Positive mood & increased motivation
• Increased neural drive
Theacrine Studies – What’s the Research?
Most theacrine studies have been performed on rats thus far, with several studies taking place with human subjects. However, theacrine is becoming more popular and therefore more research is to be expected in the near future.
Theacrine Side Effects
There are no reported side effects from taking Theacrine. TeaCrine is regarded as a clean source of energy because it does not affect blood pressure or heart rate, or cause your body to dump norepinephrine.
As with all supplements, research should be done on both the vendor and the product itself before purchasing. There are many options available when purchasing theacrine, however Pure Nootropics provides theacrine as the brand version, TeaCrine™, which is a pure, patented theacrine that consumers can trust.
