ENERGY BLEND - 1,381mg

Citrulline Malate 2:1 (1,000mg)


Citrulline is an amino acid, and malate is an intermediary compound in the citric acid (Kreb’s) cycle. The two are best used together for several reasons. First, citrulline is the most effective method for increasing body arginine levels (another amino acid) – even better than arginine supplementation, which is broken down during digestion. Arginine is then converted to nitric oxide, which increases vasodilation for better nutrient and oxygen delivery to working cells, such as brain cells. Second, supplying malate fosters more efficient ATP production. Finally, the two effects working together creates a better metabolic environment for cellular function. 


• Citrulline malate supplementation has been shown to reduce fatigue, improve memory, and increase metabolic efficiency.

• Supplementing with citrulline has been shown to increase NO synthesis nearly 10-fold (Kim et al., 2015)

• By restoring nitric oxide function and enhancing cellular energy supply, citrulline malate can improve brain cell health and promote memory (Yabuki et al., 2013)


Caffeine Anhydrous (280mg)


Caffeine is the active ingredient in coffee, tea, and other beverages used to reduce tiredness and promote alertness. Caffeine works by stimulating a release of epinephrine (adrenaline) and blocking adenosine. Epinephrine, a neurotransmitter, helps increase vigor and attention, while adenosine antagonization promotes wakefulness. In Phoenix Energy, caffeine is combined with L-Theanine, discussed below.


• Caffeine anhydrous is simply a dried, powdered version of caffeine. Anhydrous means “without water.”

• Taking caffeine has been proven to increase feelings of arousal (wakefulness), positive mood, reaction time, and memory (Childs & de Wit, 2006, Gupta, 1988).

• Supplementing caffeine improves task performance and focus while reducing feelings of mental fatigue (Kennedy and Scholey, 2004)


Methylliberine (as Dynamine™) (100mg)


Dynamine™ is a new ingredient derived from kucha leaf. It is believed to act similarly to theacrine, a proven energy and nootropic ingredient.


• Theacrine has been shown to enhance mood, vigor, and cognition. Dynamine shares a similar chemical structure with theacrine.

• May be capable of increasing dopamine, thereby boosting mood and even feelings of euphoria.

• Has the potential to work synergistically with caffeine, creating greater enhancements in energy and mood (Kuhman, Joyner, and Bloomer, 2015). 


Rauwolscine (800mcg)


Rauwolscine is an alkaloid also known as alpha-yohimbine, with which it shares many effects. It is an adrenal system augmenter, which helps with neurotransmitter release. In doing so, rauwolscine helps with sensations of energy as well as enhancing effects of other ingredients in Phoenix Energy. Rauwolscine is found in the rauwolfia genus of plants.


• One of the functions of rauwolscine is to reduce stimulation of alpha-2 adrenergic receptors. This potentiates effects of other stimulants, such as caffeine.

• Another effect of rauwolscine supplementation is optimized serotonin – a major neurotransmitter involved in good mood.

• Supplementation with rauwolscine has been noted to reduce anxiety, including social anxiety.

MOOD BLEND - 605mg

DL-Phenylalanine (250mg)


Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid. It is also a precursor to neurotransmitters, dopamine and noradrenaline. These two neurotransmitters are critical for mood enhancement and vitality. Amino acids are enantiomers, often administered in the “L” form. However in the case of phenylalanine, the “D” form is active as well.


• By increasing dopamine levels, phenylalanine supplementation is useful for reducing feelings of depression and promoting good mood.

• Adding phenylalanine has been shown to reduce instances of anger, feelings of restlessness, and reports of poor concentration (Wood, Reimherr, and Wender, 1985).

• In those reporting symptoms of depression, DL-phenylalanine supplementation eliminated these feelings in 67% of participants (Fischer et al., 1975, Beckmann, Strauss, and Ludolph, 1977)


N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (250mg)


Like phenylalanine, tyrosine is an amino acid. In the N-Acetyl form, L-Tyrosine provides a better nootropic effect. Tyrosine helps activate the “fight or flight” response via the creation of key neurotransmitters. Often, when we feel like we cannot concentrate it is a result of “using up” these neurotransmitters, and N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine works to correct such an imbalance.


• Tyrosine supplementation improves mental acuity, mood, and focus, by increasing catecholamine levels.

• Tyrosine shines during periods of stress, sleep deprivation, and other times when energy and vigor are compromised.

• A study in participants who were deprived of one whole night’s sleep found that L-tyrosine supplementation served to counteract the negative effects of the extended wake period (Neri et al., 1995)


L-Theanine (90mg)


L-Theanine is a relatively new discovery in the nootropic and mood space. Found in tea, theanine is an amino acid which acts as a GABA mimetic. GABA is a “downer” neurotransmitter that works to mitigate feelings of stress and anxiety. While many love the effects of caffeine, the most common side effect is anxiety. L-Theanine nullifies caffeine’s effects of anxiety, if present, and actually bolsters its effects on mood and concentration.


• Despite its “downer” effects, L-Theanine does not cause drowsiness or have sedative-like effects. It simply curbs agitation and environmental stressors.

• Supplementing with L-Theanine has been reported to improve relaxation, anxiety, and attention.

• In an investigation examining caffeine, theanine, and the combination of the two, both supplements improved attention and alertness, yet the combination of caffeine and L-Theanine yielded the best results (Owen et al., 2008).


Pyridoxine HCl (15mg)


Pyridoxine is vitamin B6. B6 is an essential, water-soluble vitamin involved in many metabolic reactions as a coenzyme. Enzymes are made out of protein, and a coenzyme is any non-protein molecule required for an enzyme to function properly. In this sense, coenzymes can “turn on” enzymes. In addition to its metabolic effects, B6 is also a coenzyme for hormone synthesis, and it helps boost mood and cognition.


• Vitamin B6 is involved in the production of neurotransmitters, serotonin, dopamine, and GABA.

• Low B6 levels are associated with depression and confusion, as well as anemia, weakened immune function, and mood disturbances.

• Having low vitamin B6 levels doubles risk for the development of depression (Merete, Falcon, and Tucker, 2008).

FOCUS BLEND - 165mg

CDP Choline (100mg)


Choline is one of the most important nutrients for attention, focus, and cognition. Providing choline helps increase levels of acetylcholine, a primary neurotransmitter for cell-to-cell communication. These communications are literally what helps us think. CDP Choline is cytidine diphosphocholine. It is considered the best form for improving brain function due in part to cytidine’s conversion to uridine – another ingredient in Phoenix Energy.


• Only 2% of those who do not eat eggs get enough choline. Of those who do, only 57% do reach an adequate intake level for choline (Wallace and Fulgoni, 2017)

• CDP Choline is involved in memory, neuroprotection, attention, and learning.

• Healthy participants supplementing with CDP Choline experience improvements in processing speed, working memory, verbal memory, and executive function (decision making) (Bruce et al., 2014)


Uridine Monophosphate (50mg)


Uridine is a nucleotide found in RNA. Like other nucleotides, uridine interacts with receptors known as purine receptors (P2X and P2Y). Activation of certain purine receptors stimulates neuroprotection via release of nerve growth factor and other compounds. Uridine also promotes generation of phosphatidylcholine, which may improve the function of neurons.


• Uridine contributes to phosphatidylcholine synthesis, which is both a source of choline and a significant component of neuron cell membranes.

• Addition of uridine to the diet may enhance dopamine, boosting mood.

• Perhaps the most important effects of uridine are on long term brain cell health, promoting dendrite outgrowth and synapse transmissions (Wang et al., 2005).


Niacin (16mg)


Niacin is vitamin B3, and essential vitamin. The primary function of niacin is to form nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a cofactor in metabolism that helps generate cellular energy as ATP. In part, the supply of ATP generated by NAD helps protect and fuel brain cells to promote memory and learning.


• As a metabolic cofactor, niacin helps supply brain cells and other neurons with needed energy for proper functioning.

• Supplying niacin may help with vascular and axonal remodeling.

• Correcting niacin deficiencies may correct associated mental disturbances (Wang and Liang, 2012)


Huperzine A (150mcg)


Huperzine A is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor commonly sourced from the Huperzia serrata plant. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors reduce the rate at which acetylcholine is broken down, increasing available acetylcholine levels. Because acetylcholine is a major neurotransmitter, this is helpful for improving overall cognition and focus. Because Huperzine A reduce breakdown of acetylcholine and choline supplements, like CDP choline, increase acetylcholine, Huperzine A and CDP Choline work synergistically.


• Huperzine A is special, as a specific acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, acting upon the G4 isoform of acetylcholinesterase – the form present in the mammalian brain.

• Huperzine helps protect against over-excitation by glutamate, beta-amyloid, and peroxide.

• Supplementing with Huperzine A has shown significant improvement in attention, cognition, and ability to multitask (Gul, Bakht, and Mehmood, 2018)

ENERGY BLEND - 1,381mg

Citrulline Malate (2:1) - 1,000mg

Citrulline produces several important effects in the body. One major way it works is by increasing vasodilation. After citrulline is consumed, some is converted to another amino acid called arginine. Arginine is converted into a molecule called nitric oxide, which causes vasodilation of blood vessels by relaxing the smooth muscle cells that constrict them. This effect allows blood, nutrients, and oxygen to flow freely to every part of your body thus allowing it to perform at a higher state. When nitric oxide production is decreased, your health can become compromised [1]. 


Research from the Medical Research Council (MRC) Toxicology Unit at the University of Leicester shows that nitric oxide (NO) can change the computational ability of the brain. "It is broadly localized in the central nervous system, where it influences synaptic transmission and contributes to learning and memory mechanisms [2].” 


Therefore, when it comes to energy, it’s important to achieve and maintain optimal levels of nitric oxide in your body.

Caffeine Anhydrous - 280mg

Caffeine is a naturally occurring substance found in approximately 60 different plant species. Caffeine anhydrous is derived from these plants. The other chemical components of the plants along with any water are filtered out in a laboratory. This leaves a white crystalline powder called caffeine anhydrous.


Caffeine works the same way whether it's from a natural source or caffeine anhydrous. It's a sneaky impersonator of another chemical in your brain—a neurotransmitter called adenosine. When adenosine latches on to certain receptors in the brain, it makes you slow down and feel sleepy. When you ingest caffeine, it attaches to those same receptors and prevents as much adenosine from binding. This keeps you feeling awake and alert longer.


According to the Mayo Clinic and the FDA, most adults can safely consume up to 400 milligrams of caffeine. The European Food Safety Authority also supports this level of consumption, stating that single doses of 200 milligrams at one time and habitual consumption of 400 milligrams per day are considered safe for non-pregnant women [1].

Dynamine™ is methylliberine, a purine alkaloid found in the kucha tea leaf. Its molecular structure is similar to theacrine (aka TeaCrine®) and is believed to behave in similar ways in the body. Like theacrine, methylliberine may amplify feelings of energy, mood and focus by activating dopamine receptors and other key neurotransmitters, inhibiting adenosine receptors, all without elevating heart rate or blood pressure. [1]

Rauwolscine - 800mcg

Rauwolscine is a molecule mainly found in two groups (genera) of plants: Rauwolfia and Pausinystalia. Rauwolscine is primarily taken for boosting fat loss, improving physical performance, and enhancing libido and sexual function. 


How it works:To start with, norepinephrine and epinephrine (adrenaline) play key roles in the fight-or-flight (sympathetic) nervous system. Their activity is called adrenergic. Rauwolscine blocks alpha-2 adrenergic receptors (α2 receptors), binding to them selectively. Alpha-2 receptors are found in the brain and throughout the body. Mildly activated, they counter the stress response; they calm the heart and brain. That’s why rauwolscine may raise heart rate and act as a stimulant. By blocking alpha-2 receptors, rauwolscine increases norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine levels and decreases serotonin levels. 


This chemical shift adds to the stimulant effect as well as may rev fat burning and raise insulin.Rauwolscine also weakly activates certain serotonin (5-HT1A and 5-HT1D) receptors and blocks others (5-HT1B, 5-HT2A, 5-HT2B, 5-HT2C). As a result, it may reduce appetite and offer antianxiety and antidepressant effects.

MOOD BLEND - 605mg

DL-Phenylalanine - 250mg

DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is an amino acid supplement that plays a crucial role in many functions within the body. One of those functions is to produce tyrosine, a major component for synthesizing hormones. Phenylalanine also produces neurotransmitters in the body, including epinephrine, dopamine, and norepinephrine. Phenylalanine is found in three different forms, but if you want to get the most out of them, you’ll want to look at the third form: DL-phenylalanine. This form combines both the “L” and “D” forms, creating a supplement with the benefits of both types. 


ENHANCING YOUR MOOD- With DLPA, your body may also produce tyrosine, which can also increase dopamine production. The more dopamine you have impacting your brain, the more likely you are to experience an overall enhanced mood, reduce pain and have greater feelings of happiness and fulfillment.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine - 250mg

NALTN-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) is a modified version of the amino acid l-tyrosine which has the additional active compound acetic acid attached to it. This combination helps with its accelerated bio-availability and absorption straight into the blood stream when you digest it. L-Tyrosine is created within the body from another amino acid phenylalanine and it is very influential in the production of several very important neurotransmitters within the brain.


Specifically, it is involved in the production of the hormones epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. It has been observed to; be a mood booster that helps you maintain a more positive outlook, facilitate an increase in dopamine levels which makes it one of the theorized mechanisms for reducing anxiety and stress levels, help your body to control the levels of norepinephrine which allows your body to deal with internal and external stressors more effectively in anxiety induced situations.


Also, by taking NALT, sufferers of social anxiety disorders can keep their dopamine levels in the brain topped up. This increase in transmitter activity could enable them to function more positively in a social setting.

L-Theanine - 90mg

L-theanine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in green tea, black tea, and certain types of mushroom. The human body does not produce this compound naturally, and it is not considered essential for humans although research suggest that L-Theanine might provide a range of health benefits affecting levels of certain chemicals in the brain. These include serotonin and dopamine, which influence mood, sleep, emotion, and cortisol, which helps the body deal with stress. A change in the balance of these chemicals can change a person's mood or stress levels [1]. 


However, its most significant benefit has shown to be its ability to reduce mental fatigue and stress in humans. L-theanine affects the brain in several ways. It is known to amplify alpha brain waves, allowing for a type of calm alertness and even heightened creativity. It’s also a natural anxiolytic, meaning it reduces anxiety in humans, and can even reduce blood pressure and a hastened heart rate. It does this by reducing levels of stress hormones like cortisol.


Theanine has also been shown to boost levels of GABA, as well as other hormones and compounds that promote calm, focus, regulated mood, and more.By itself, l-theanine is effective nootropic, but when combined with caffeine…there’s a pronounced synergistic effect. This means you experience heightened focus, awareness, and energy, as well as reduced stress and improved mental endurance to even higher levels [2].

Pyridoxine HCL - 15mg

PyridoxineVitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that your body needs for several functions. It’s significant to protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism and the creation of red blood cells and neurotransmitters. Your body cannot produce vitamin B6, so you must obtain it from foods or supplements.


Vitamin B6 plays an important role in mood regulation. This is partly because this vitamin is necessary for creating neurotransmitters that regulate emotions, including serotonin, dopamine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). 


Vitamin B6 may also play a role in decreasing high blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine, which have been linked to depression and other psychiatric issues. Several studies have shown that depressive symptoms are associated with low blood levels and intakes of vitamin B6, especially in older adults who are at high risk for B vitamin deficiency..

FOCUS BLEND - 165mg

Citicoline (CDP Choline) - 100mg

Citicoline (cytidine diphosphocholine) also known as CDP choline. This compound has neuroprotective properties and is made up of choline and cytidine. Choline is one of the most important nutrients for healthy brain function, given its precursor status to the following compounds; Acetylcholine (ACh) – a neurotransmitter that facilitates communication between neurons as well as within the neuromuscular junction, and Phosphatidylcholine (PC) – a key component of the cellular membrane and a conditional reservoir of choline for acetylcholine production. By improving ACh, PC, and other brain chemicals, raw choline donors benefit cognition by supporting memory, learning, attention, focus, brain energy, brain regeneration, and muscular performance.


Popular choline sources: Citicoline, Alpha-GPC, Choline Bitartrate.


Choline Bitartrate- Many nootropic supplements opt for choline bitartrate as their source of choline, and in doing so they compromise quality for cost. In terms of cognition enhancement, there’s a major problem with choline bitartrate. This form is very ineffective at crossing the blood-brain barrier. Put simply: choline bitartrate does not work.


Citicoline (CDP Choline)- is more than a choline source. It also doubles as a cytidine supplier, delivering the precursor to the nootropic compound uridine, a key factor in synaptic strength and neural connectivity, a powerful nootropic on its own. While citicoline possesses less choline per serving than alpha-GPC, the combination of choline and cytidine is a potent, powerful tool of cognitive enhancement that exceeds the standard benefits of choline, namely within the realms of brain energy and repair.


Citicoline’s diverse biomechanisms qualify the nootropic not only as an acute cognitive enhancer but a long-term brain repair nutrient, granting it a unique status as a universal nootropic compound.

Uridine Monophosphate - 50mg

Uridine monophosphate (5′-uridylic acid or UMP) is a nucleotide that is one of the four key components of RNA, the messenger that carries instructions for DNA and is essential for all known forms of life. UMP is generating buzz among neurohackers and health enthusiasts because it is vital for the healthy function of the central nervous system and could hold powerful benefits for cognitive function if implemented properly.


Adding more UMP to your diet may encourage the production of phospholipids via CDP-choline. Phospholipids are what encase new neurons when they are formed. In other words, UMP is fuel for cognitive function. It encourages the growth of synapses, communication between neurons, and neural plasticity. Boosting your ability to create thinking cells never hurts! There is evidence that uridine leads to better brain function and memory.

Niacin - 16mg

Vitamin B3 (Niacin, nicotinic acid, 3-pyridine-carboxylic acid) is one of eight B-Vitamins. Niacin is a precursor to the coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP). Among many health benefits Niacin helps:


Protect brain cells. Niacin as a precursor to NAD and NADH repairs cell and DNA damage. And stimulates your immune system. Niacin boosts the production of Nitric Oxide (NO) which relaxes blood vessels in your brain increasing cerebral blood flow. And niacin acts as an antioxidant helping to eliminate free radicals that can damage brain cells.


Brain energy. As a precursor to NADH, niacin provides electrons for ATP synthesis that fuels mitochondria in brain cells. Low levels of niacin result in brain fog, slow mental processing, and cognitive decline.


Neurotransmitters. Niacin affects cognitive function by stimulating the production of dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin. These neurotransmitters are involved in memory, learning, cognition, recall and mood.

Huperzine A - 150mcg

HUPERZINE AHuperzine A is a substance extracted from a plant called Chinese club moss (Huperzia serrata). In traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese club moss has long been used to reduce inflammation and to sharpen memory. 


Huperzine A has been found to act as a cholinesterase inhibitor, a type of medicine used to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine which is said to enhance learning and memory and to protect against age-related cognitive decline.Huperzine A also appears to be of some benefit to people with Alzheimer's disease, according to a 2013 research review published in PLoS One and a 2008 review published in Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. For both reviews, researchers searched for all randomized controlled trials on the efficacy and safety of huperzine A for Alzheimer's disease and concluded that huperzine A was more effective than placebo in terms of its effects on cognitive function, behavioral disturbance, and functional performance.


In terms of possible memory enhancement, a study of 68 junior high students (all of whom complained of memory inadequacy) were given either huperzine A or a placebo every day for four weeks. By the study's end, members of the huperzine A group showed greater improvements in learning and memory (compared to members of the placebo group).
