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.
In addition to boosting dopamine levels, Theacrine (asTeaCrine®) 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.
