ALPHAGEN - Ingredient write-ups

Citrulline Malate

  • L-Citrulline is an amino acid that is more effective at increasing L-Arginine levels in the body than L-Arginine supplementation. Malate (or Malic Acid) is a Kreb's cycle intermediate involved in energy metabolism. Typically they are combined in a 2:1 ratio as L-Citrulline DL-Malate.
  • Increases nitric oxide (NO) metabolism, resulting in greater blood flow and “pump”. Used to alleviate erectile dysfunction caused by high blood pressure.
  • Improves metabolite recycling processes, reduces fatigue and improves endurance for both aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
  • Common dosing is 6,000-8,000mg of L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1.
  • ALPHAGEN contains 8,000mg L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1 per 1 scoop.

Creatine Monohydrate

  • The most widely studied and supported form of creatine on the market.
  • Rapidly replenishes cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate; ATP) for increased strength, power and endurance.
  • Increases intracellular fluid for enhanced hydration and muscle protein synthesis.
  • Possesses neuroprotective and cardioprotective properties.
  • Creatine should be dosed at 0.03 g/kg/day. For a 180 lb (82 kg) person, this translates to approximately 2.5 g/day.
  • ALPHAGEN contains 5g creatine monohydrate per 1 scoop. 


  • The rate limiting amino acid in carnosine synthesis (when combined with histidine in the body, which is readily available).
  • Carnosine acts as a buffer of acid in muscles, increasing physical performance and delaying fatigue.
  • Beta-alanine can cause slight tingling of the extremities called paresthesia, which is a harmless side effect that quickly dissipates.
  • Most common dosing is 1.6-3.2g/day, either all at once or in divided doses.
  • ALPHAGEN contains 3.2g beta-alanine per 1 scoop.


  • A nonessential amino acid that is used to make the catecholamine neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine (adrenaline).
  • Acts as an anti-stress compound for acute stressors such as strenuous exercise.While L-tyrosine is less water soluble than other forms of tyrosine (N-acetyl tyrosine, for example), it is more bioavailable in the body and thus raises plasma tyrosine levels up to 10x more than other forms of tyrosine.
  • Tyrosine is commonly dosed between 500-2,000mg up to 60 minutes prior to activity.
  • ALPHAGEN contains a 2,000mg L-tyrosine per 1 scoop.

DMAE Bitartrate

  • Dimethylaminoethanol bitartrate (DMAE) is a nootropic (brain health and enhancement) compound which increases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain.
  • DMAE is not to be confused with the stimulants DMAA/DMHA or the DHEA hormones and their respective derivatives. DMAE is safe and not banned by athletic organizations. 
  • Used extensively in treating cognitive decline in populations such as the aging and those with Alzheimer’s by increasing blood and oxygen flow as well as glucose uptake in the brain.
  • Enhances cognition, focus and memory.
  • DMAE is commonly dosed in the range of 300-1,500mg/day and is effective at lower dosing when paired with Huperzine A.
  • ALPHAGEN contains 750mg DMAE bitartrate per 1 scoop.

Mucuna Pruriens

  • Derived from the velvet bean plant and is a rich source of L-DOPA, the precursor to dopamine and eventually adrenaline.
  • Dopamine plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior, similar to (albeit to a lesser degree) drugs such as cocaine, which make the user feel energetic, happy, and increases their ability to undertake stressful tasks. Dopamine is also involved in motor control.
  • L-DOPA has been shown to increase circulating dopamine levels in doses up to 735mg/day.
  • ALPHAGEN contains 750mg mucuna pruriens (98% L-DOPA) per scoop, providing 735mg per 1 scoop. 


  • AlphaSize® Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC) is recognized as the "premier" choline donor, especially compared to other forms of choline that offer reduced bioavailability.
  • Promotes formation of acetylcholine (AC), a vital neurotransmitter compound involved in all key brain functions and mental sharpness.
  • Improvement in key brain functions, including memory, concentration, learning, recall, and focus.
  • Optimizes muscular power output, sharpens agility, and also delays mental fatigue due motor unit activation of muscle fibers and subsequent muscle contraction, as well as its mental sharpness benefits.
  • ALPHAGEN contains 600mg patented and trademarked AlphaSize® (50% yielding 300mg AlphaGPC) per 1 scoop.


    • Theacrine (as TeaCrine™) is an alkaloid structurally similar to caffeine and activates similar signaling pathways. Evidence also suggests less tolerance with theacrine compared to caffeine.
    • Similar to Dynamine but more gradual onset and longer lasting.
    • Boosts mental and physical energy without jitters or irritability.
    • Supports a positive mood, increases motivation to exercise, and improves perceived focus and concentration. Does not lead to rapid tolerance or habituation.
    • ALPHAGEN contains 100mg Theacrine (from 250mg non-bitter TeaCrine™) per 1 scoop. 


    • Methylliberine (as Dynamine™) is an alkaloid structurally similar to caffeine and activates similar signaling pathways. Evidence also suggests less tolerance with methylliberine compared to caffeine.
    • Similar to Teacrine but shorter onset and fast acting. 
    • Boosts mental and physical energy without jitters or irritability.
    • Supports a positive mood, increases motivation to exercise, and improves perceived focus and concentration. Does not lead to rapid tolerance or habituation.
    • ALPHAGEN contains 100mg Methylliberine (from 250mg non-bitter Dynamine™) per 1 scoop.


    • Caffeine is often used to improve physical strength and endurance as well as provide mental stimulation.
    • Widely studied for safety and efficacy and most people tolerate it well on a spectrum of dosing. Caution should always be used and dosing should be slowly increased over time as needed for desired effects.
    • Caffeine’s half-life is 2.5-4.5 hours so novel, time-released forms of caffeine are generally not necessary.
    • Dosing should be approximately 200mg for fat-burning and 4-6mg/kg BW acutely for increasing strength and power output. For a 180 lb (82 kg) person, this translates to approximately 330-500mg prior to exercise.
    • ALPHAGEN contains 200mg caffeine anhydrous per 1 scoop, coupled with 100mg Theacrine and 100mg Methylliberine for a total of 400mg caffeine-like compounds.  

    Eria Jarensis

    • Eria Jarensis Extract (N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine Citrate) is a rich source amines (such as Phenylethylamine, or PEA) that acts as a neurotransmitter and has positive effects on many of the “happy hormones” such as dopamine and serotonin.
    • PEA is rapidly broken down by the MAO-B enzyme whereas the effects of Eria Jarensis are more prolonged.
    • Is lipophilic (able to dissolve in fats) and is able to cross the blood-brain barrier more easily than traditional PEA derivatives.
    • Has been used in the food supply and is GRAS Status (is Generally Recognized as Safe) as a food additive.
    • Shown to elicit anti-depressant actions during exercise, and mood enhancing and energetic effects before traditional stimulants such as caffeine.
    • ALPHAGEN contains 200mg Eria Jarensis Extract per serving.



    • The primary “feel good” compound in chocolate, theobromine is a cocoa extract that may provide cardiovascular and cognitive benefits through improved blood flow and antioxidant effects as well as energy production.
    • Increases exercise performance, muscle contractile force, blood flow, alertness, mood enhancement, and metabolic rate.
    • Theobromine is commonly dosed between 50-200mg prior to activity.
    • ALPHAGEN contains 200mg Theobromine 99% per 1 scoop.  


    • The relaxing amino acid found in tea, theanine promotes relaxation without sedation; it helps you stay calm without making you tired or drowsy.
    • Reduces stress and improves attention.
    • Theanine helps take off the ‘edge’ of many stimulants, and a synergistic effect is seen when coupled with caffeine in promoting cognition and attention.
    • Theanine is commonly dosed between 100-200mg prior to activity, or synergistically in combination with caffeine (and caffeine-like compounds). 
    • ALPHAGEN contains 200mg L-theanine per 1 scoop. 

       Synephrine HCL

      • A beta-agonist similar to ephedrine, albeit less potent.
      • Increases metabolic rate and fat-burning and shows synergism with caffeine.
      • Synephrine is not banned by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), has failed to cause false positive drug testing for amphetamines, and has been shown to be safe and free of most adverse side effects.
      • 50mg synephrine when taken by healthy subjects at rest has been shown to increase caloric expenditure by 65kcal with no significant influence blood pressure or heart rate.
      • Synephrine is commonly dosed at 10-20mg 3 x day, or 50mg acutely.
      • ALPHAGEN contains 50mg synephrine HCL per 1 scoop. 


      • AstraGin® is a patented blend of highly purified saponins isolated from the Astragalus membranaceous and Panax notoginseng plant.
      • Shown to dramatically increase the absorption and bioavailability of a variety of nutrients, such as peptides, amino acids, glucose, vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients, and various sports nutrition supplements.
      • Supports the gut ecosystem by providing a favorable microbiome environment.
      • Enhances the immune system.
      • Recommended daily dose is 50mg per day.
      • ALPHAGEN contains 50mg AstraGin® per serving.


            • Bioperine® is the trademarked version of piperine, a black pepper extract that increases the absorption of various nutrients such as curcumin (up to 2,000% in humans) as well as inhibits the breakdown of fat-burning compounds such as caffeine and the catecholamines, prolonging the effects of preworkout stimulants and increasing their bioavailability.
            • Piperine also reduces LDL cholesterol and plasma lipids while elevating HDL cholesterol and the thyroid hormones.
            • Common dosing is 5-10mg for preworkout supplements and 20mg for curcumin containing products such as MorphoPRIME and ORTHOGEN. 
            • ALPHAGEN contains 10mg Bioperine® per 1 scoop.

            Huperzine A

            • A nootropic molecule that inhibits the enzyme that breaks down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Huperzine makes choline sources work better for longer.
            • Huperzine A is shown to work better than Rx drugs for this purpose and is also neuroprotective.
            • Effective dosing is 50-300mcg, but because the long half-life of huperzine, consuming the top end of the dosing (300mcg) daily may cause huperzine to build up in the system, so a more moderate dose may be safer and just as effective.
            • ALPHAGEN contains 200mcg huperzine A per 1 scoop.
