  • BCAAs vs EAAs; What are they, how they work, and which are better?

    Branched-Chained-Amino-Acids (BCAAs) and Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) are different forms of the building blocks of protein- amino acids. Amino acids are strung together by the body into polypeptide chains which serve as the basis of all proteins in the body- from muscle tissue, to skin, to enzymes that catalyze vital reactions. The amount of free amino acids you have influence the rate of protein synthesis in your body- how fast you make the proteins and how much you make. Revved up protein synthesis is how your cells grow, including muscle tissue.
  • The Complete DMHA Guide; Comparing DMHA to DMAA and Other Monoamines

    DMHA, Dimethylhexylamine, is a psychoactive, central nervous stimulant that falls in the class known as monoamines; other compounds in this class include1,3-Dimethylamylamine (DMAA), Adderall (Amphetamine), and Crystal Meth (Meth-Amphetamine). While these compounds all vary in potency greatly, they all work in a similar mechanism with just a varying efficiency. They are all considered catecholamine reuptake inhibitors due to their structure that allows them to bind to transporter proteins that are responsible for taking your catecholamine neurotransmitters (dopamine, epinephrine (adrenaline), and nor-epinephrine (nor-adrenaline) out of your synapse to be recycled. Before we go to into depth, lets take a look at DMHA's structure and it's significance.
