Yohimbine HCL is one of the most underrated stackable supplements on the market.
Yohimbine has been used for years to help with blood flow, and to aid in sexual health. Studies have also shown that Yohimbine HCL supplementation can aid in body composition and fat loss.
According to a Sports Med study, a group of athletes who supplemented with Yohimbine HCL over the course of a 21day study showed a significant loss in fat mass vs those who took a placebo (1).
Yohimbine works by mobilizing fatty acids through the blood stream alongside its vasodilation properties. While there have not been a ton of studies done on Yohimbine HCL, many users report increases in body temperature, vascularity, and increases in sexual performance.
Hordenine HCL is commonly used as an ingredient in nootropic products because of its user-reported effects on mood elevation, and an increase in focus, concentration and attention.
While more research is being done to further prove its efficiency as a cognitive enhancer, many users also report that Hordenine works synergistically with other nootropics in the racetam or choline families.
Hordenine works by releasing and protecting norepinephrine through the body, a hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, or message sender in the brain.
Overall, we would like to see more research published about the benefits Hordenine HCL that further backs our use, however, much of the anecdotal dosing trials have reported safe and positive qualities.
Another big word that may take a few tries to pronounce, but we will spell out the benefits while you sound out the word. Phenylethylamine HCL(PEA) works by causing dopamine and norepinephrine to be released in the brain. Both of those hormones are responsible for positive mood enhancement, concentration, alertness, wakefulness, and focus.
Dopamine is especially important because when it is released, suddenly our body can much more easily burn fat, while elevating mood and increasing focus (among other things). Due to PEA causing the release of dopamine and norepinephrine, we will gain full access to all of the benefits listed above, and then some.
A current study on PEA describes it as “an immediate shot of happiness, pleasure, and emotional well-being” (7). Here’s the most important thing about PEA that isn’t always addressed; it can aid in so many benefits without risks of negative side effects or dependency. That’s right PEA is extremely safe, and at a 300mg dose in Shredderall, is the perfect amount to heighten your sense of well-being, happiness, and enjoyment of life.
For those of you who have heard of the old school fat burner ephedrine, meet its little brother, synephrine.
P-synephrine has a ton of positive benefits on performance, especially athletic performance, weight loss, increases in blood flow, and endurance.
A recent study showed that 12 healthy male subjects who supplemented with P-synephrine showed an increase in exercise performance (total repetitions performed and volume load complete) during their workouts. This increase in performance was only amplified when stacked with caffeine (also in Shredderall) (3). This study also showed there were no negative side effects or consequences associated with stacking the two ingredients.
One important note: Synephrine is banned by the NCAA and can cause a failed drug test. The best thing to do is contact your federations to find out if Synephrine is legally useable in competitions. P-Synephrine has numerous benefits related to weight loss and athletic performance.
No ingredient is quite as hot as Theacrine right now! Theacrine is one of the most stackable supplements on the market for overall performance enhancement.
Users report increases in mental and physical energy, positive mood enhancement and increased motivation, improved cognitive functioning, memory enhancement, and much, much more! Not only are all these benefits positive, but when stacked with caffeine, Theacrine’s benefits seem to be amplified.
A recent double-blind study on the effects of Theacrine with caffeine showed that users experienced energy, focus, and concentration all increased with just a 200mg dose. The same study showed that willingness to exercise, motivation to train, and libido all increased during the length of the study. (4)
A second double blind study showed that Theacrine, when combined with caffeine, showed an increase in energy, concentration, and mood, all while reducing fatigue (5).
Essentially, Theacrine will take whatever you pair with it and amplify its effects on cognitive and physical performance. Theacrine is the real deal, which is why we included a clinically tested dose in Shredderall.
Everybody loves caffeine and when paired with Theacrine, there is just that much more to love! In a 2010 study properly titled “Caffeine-Not just a stimulant” studies suggested that moderate amounts of caffeine:
The most important thing was that at the end of the study, when used by otherwise healthy non-pregnant adults in safe doses, it is safe. We have known the benefits of caffeine for ages but we're here to tell you some things about it you may not have known.
When caffeine is paired with a nootropic, not just Theacrine, it further increases the bioavailability (usefulness) of the nootropic. Caffeine anhydrous, paired with Theacrine, paired with everything else on the ingredient list is only going to help you to focus and concentrate even harder, have more energy than you have ever dreamed of, and accomplish more in and out of the weight room than ever before.
Dimethylaminoethanol or Dimethylethanolamine is a choline molecule that has numerous studies showing its benefits in cognitive health.
DMAE is naturally produced by the brain, and it functions as the precursor to choline, the nutrient in the brain that helps with neurotransmission. Choline is essential in so many bodily functions that is labeled was one of the most important nutrients in the human body. DMAE is just as crucial as choline however, because it must be present for choline to work its mind and muscle magic.
For those of us who may be gym rats, DMAE is going to help us “feel” the pump and help us to visualize our muscles working.
By adding DMAE to Shredderall, increases in positive mood, memory improvement, and faster neurotransmission occur because of the body having more access to choline. Think of it this way, without DMAE, your body and mind cannot reach its maximum potential! User feedback on DMAE has been nothing short of great with constant positive feedback!
Vinpocetine is another ingredient that does not have much research done on it, however, most of the studies that have been concluded have been positive.
A recent double-blind study that used vinpocetine to test increases in cognitive performance and memory in healthy adult females showed that over the course of as little as two days, memory was improved dramatically (2).
Vinpocetine was also shown in various other studies to increase blood flow to the brain and help with nutrient transport. This makes vinpocetine the perfect supplement to help those nootropic-property filled ingredients to the brain.
Using an ingredient such as vinpocetine in Shredderall ensures that your body is getting all of the nutrients and ingredients in the rest of the capsule.
