iForce Nutrition Dexaprine has several compounds that have very powerful effects for mood enhancement and weight loss. One such compound is the N,N-dimethylphenethylamine. What’s great about this compound is that it has similar capabilities of both the phenethylamine and amphetamine chemical classes, just not as powerful — which is a good thing.

Where does N,N-dimethylphenethylamine come from?

N N-dimethyl-phenethylamine

Source of N N-dimethyl-phenethylamine – Acacia rigidula

The compound is one of the many active amines found in Acacia rigidula. Significant amounts can be found in Acacia rigidula and the presence of other amines actually increases the effects of N,N-dimethylphenethylamine. Other sources include plants from the Acacia family and cacao or chocolates.

N,N-dimethylphenethylamine as a Stimulant and Why It’s Needed

iForce Nutrition knew that burning fat would have several effects on the body. One of the effects of Dexaprine is to properly flood our body with great amounts of energy from our fat and glycogen stores. This is done by increasing the amounts of epinephrine and other hormones and biochemicals in the body. This is exactly how stress works.

Adrenaline Crash is not Pretty

When we’re stressed or exposed to threatening situations, our body produces epinephrine that can tell our fat and glycogen stores to give up its stored fuel. However once the stress is over, our bodies experience what we call “crash” also known as “adrenaline crash”.  Symptoms of an adrenaline crash include the following

  • Tiredness
  • Depression
  • Sleepiness
  • Weakness

Similarly, Dexaprine, as well as many other fat burners, try to mimic the stress response in order for us to burn our fat. But if not done properly, it means that you will be prone to symptoms of adrenaline crash after the supplement wears off. To address thiss, iForce Nutrition wisely added stimulants with various half-times. Half time just means the amount of time needed for half of the dose of a specific compound is cleared by the body. Half-life is an important indicator on how long a chemical compound stays in the body.

N,N-dimethylphenethylamine as a homologue of Phenethylamine

N,N-dimethylphenethylamine and phenenthylamine are considered homologues or substances that have similar properties. Usually, homologues have the same functional groups. Note that phenethylamine is PEA – the stuff that gives you an awesome feeling from chocolate. Therefore, this makes N,N-dimethylphenethylamine a capable mood enhancer, similar to what the natural PEA in your brain brings.

How N,N-dimethylphenethylamine Works

As a stimulant, N,N-dimethylphenethylamine can help increase the amount of norepinephrine and dopamine in the body.

Norepinephrine is one of two main hormones found in great amounts during stress. As a neurotransmitter, it can affect the sympathetic nervous system. As a stress hormone, it can help with the “fight or flight” response. Norepinephrine triggers gluconeogenesis or the release of glucose from glycogen.  Blood flow to skeletal muscle also increases. This can result to improved oxygenation and utilization of energy from the blood. You can last longer and lift more weights in the gym.

Norepinephrine triggered by N,N-dimethylphenethylamine can also have several effects on the CNS. It actually helps you focus. Many athletes have reported increased mental acuity and the “tunnel vision” effect or increased focus at the task in hand. Reaction time is also increased allowing one to make split second decisions. Usually, you only need this attribute during a stressful event or “fight or flight” situation. With N,N-dimethylphenethylamine, you can have this attribute anytime you take Dexaprine.

N,N-dimethyl-phenethylamine Also found in Chocolates is a Mood Enhancer

Another property of N,N-dimethylphenethylamine is a mood enhancer. It can increase Dopamine levels in the body naturally. It is a powerful biochemical substance in the body. Dopamine has many attributes such as the following:

  • Voluntary movement
  • Increased cognition
  • Increase motivation
  • Improved Sleep
  • Improved Memory and Learning
  • Improved Mood
  • Increased Attention

In fact, N,N-dimethylphenethylamine has been used by many doctors to treat people having problems with sleeping, depression and even ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity syndrome. Many studies have found that if you have decreased levels of dopamine, you will have serious bouts of depression. However, too much can be just as bad, so never take more than the recommended dosage, and always talk to your doctor before beginning a diet or supplementation program – especially if you’re on prescription drugs!!

Side Effects of N,N-dimethylphenethylamine

iForce Nutrition advocates proper diet and also the proper way of taking weight loss supplements and stimulants. Dexaprine is actually a weight loss supplement and stimulant so it is important that you only take one source of N,N-dimethylphenethylamine! In fact, NEVER mix Dexaprine with other stimulants or prescription drugs unless otherwise approved by a doctor. PEA, and closely related compounds do NOT mix well with MAO inhibitor drugs — MAO is required to break these down, and if you take an MAOI, you may seriously cause permanent problems.

This compound is closely related to amphetamine, so it can have some powerful effects, even though it is weaker and in very small doses. In fact, it’s been found out that the production of the addictive drug methamphetamine brings out small amounts of N,N-dimethylphenethylamine as a by-product. Although it’s not as strong or addictive as illegal meth, however, at great amounts it could be dangerous to your health.

Always stick with moderation. Even iForce Nutrition suggests starting with half a tablet of Dexaprine. Even if you have already tried many stimulants, start with a low dose. Many veteran bodybuilders and stim-users have reported that even a half dose packs quite a punch!
