RIPTIDE V2 is our highly advanced fat-blasting formula that will work to shred unwanted fat and water while improving daily functions through an increase in energy and focus. This perfectly-tuned thermogenic formula contains a blend of 9 ingredients that make up 3 different complexes that work synergestically to cover all aspects of developing a lean, shredded physique. When taken daily, RIPTIDE V2 will support an increase in metabolism and fat-incinerating for up to 8 hours pushing you past plateaus and towards your fat-loss goals.

The Science

Energy/Focus Blend:



Central Nervous System (CNS) Stimulant that increases metabolism and focus by working on adenosine receptors to block the functions of adenosine(responsible for tiredness)


Phenylethylamine HCl

A stimulant and neuromodulator from the class of monoamines that works to increase metabolism and mood by increasing natural nor-epinephrine and dopamine levels



A water-soluble fiber extracted from the konjac plant that helps suppress cravings and decrease absorption of fats due to its ability to absorb a large-amount of water within the stomach



A more active and potent form of Vitamin B1 that plays a major role in metabolizing carbs, fats, and proteins. Low levels of B1 have been linked to fatigue and depression



An amino-acid involved directly with the production of norepinephrine and dopamine which is why supplementation has been shown to increase mental capacity and decrease stress



Thermogenesis Blend:


Green Tea Extract

A well-known fat-burning compound and antioxidant, RIPTIDE V2 contains a dose of Green Tea Extract standardized to 50% epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and 98% polyphenols. EGCG is a type of catechin that carries intense antioxidant activities and aids cardiovascular activity by improving bloodflow and permeability of capillaries. EGCG is highly effective in fat-loss due to its ability to block the enzyme catechol-O-methyltransferase, which is responsible for the breakdown of norepinephrine; a hormone highly responsible for the use of fat storages. The polyphenols contained in the Green Tea Extract act as potent antioxidants to enhance recovery.


Raspberry Ketones

Derived from raspberries, these ketones induce lypolysis (breakdown of fat) that cause the cells to release the metabolism stimulating hormone; adiponectin. Higher levels of adiponectin are linked to increases in fat-loss


Yohimbe Bark

Extracted from the Pausinystalia johimbe tree, this indole alkaloid has the ability to block alpha-2 adrenergic receptors on fat-cells which is why it is believed to contribute to fat-loss



Lipogenic Blend


Kola Nut

A natural source of both compounds; caffeine and theobromine. Both these compounds contribute to fat-loss due to their stimulant properties while also improving alertness and energy. Theobromine has been shown to improve cardiac function as a cardiac stimulant and cause loss of undesired water weight as acting as a natural diuretic



Derived from the amino-acid lysine, L-Carntine has been linked to fat-loss as it is directly involved in the metabolism of fats. Increasing metabolism of fats helps diminish stored fat

β-phenylethylamine Requires the Dopamine Transporter to Increase Extracellular Dopamine in C. elegans Dopaminergic Neurons

"β-phenylethylamine (βPEA) is an endogenous amine that has been shown to increase the synaptic levels of dopamine (DA). A number of in vitro and behavioral studies suggest the dopamine transporter (DAT) plays a role in the effects generated by βPEA, however the mechanism through which βPEA affects DAT has not yet been elucidated. Here, we used Caenorhabditis (C.) elegans DAT (DAT-1) expressing LLC-pk1 cells and neuronal cultures to investigate whether the βPEA-induced increase of extracellular DA required DAT-1. Our data show that βPEA increases extracellular dopamine both in DAT-1 transfected cells and cultures of differentiated neurons. RTI-55, a cocaine homologue and DAT inhibitor, completely blocked the βPEA-induced effect in transfected cells. However in neuronal cultures, RTI-55 only partly inhibited the increase of extracellular DA generated by βPEA. These results suggest that βPEA requires DAT-1 and other, not yet identified proteins, to increase extracellular DA when tested in a native system. Furthermore, our results suggest that βPEA-induced increase of extracellular DA does not require functional monoamine vesicles as genetic ablation of the C. elegans homologue vesicular monoamine transporter, cat-1, did not compromise the ability of βPEA to increase extracellular DA. Finally, our electrophysiology data show that βPEA caused fast-rising and self-inactivating amperometric currents in a subset of wild-type DA neurons but not in neurons isolated from dat-1 knockout animals. Taken together, these data demonstrate that in both DA neurons and heterogeneous cultures of differentiated C. elegans neurons, βPEA releases cytoplasmic DA through DAT-1 to ultimately increase the extracellular concentration of DA."




Glucomannan and obesity: a critical review.

"Glucomannan (GM) is a soluble, fermentable, and highly viscous dietary fiber derived from the root of the elephant yam or konjac plant, which is native to Asia. Preliminary evidence suggests that GM may promote weight loss. This review summarizes studies using GM for weight loss as well as studies investigating its mechanisms of action. At doses of 2-4 g per day, GM was well-tolerated and resulted in significant weight loss in overweight and obese individuals. There is some evidence that GM exerts its beneficial effects by promoting satiety and fecal energy loss. Additionally, GM has been shown to improve lipid and lipoprotein parameters and glycemic status. Further investigation of safety, efficacy, and mechanisms of action is needed to determine whether GM can help to decrease the high prevalence of overweight and obesity in the United States."




Effects of green tea and its epigallocatechin (EGCG) content on body weight and fat mass in humans: a systematic review
“Research has been very varied, however, daily consumption of green tea with doses of EGCG between 100 and 460 mg/day has shown greater effectiveness on body fat and body weight reduction in intervention periods of 12 weeks or more. In addition, the use of caffeine doses between 80 and 300 mg/day has been shown to be an important factor for the effects”




Green Coffee Beans May Lead to Weight loss, New Study Shows
“The new study involved 16 overweight people (with Body Mass Indexes between 25 to 30) between the ages of 22 to 46 years old. They were monitored for 22 weeks, in which they were given a low dose 700 mg green coffee extract tablet, a high dose 1,050 mg extract tablet and a placebo. Because they were given all the different doses and the inactive placebo, the participants acted as their own control group.

After the study, participants lost an average of 17 pounds, which broke down to a 10.5 percent decrease in overall body weight and a 16 percent decrease in body fat. Lead researcher Dr. Joe Vinson, a professor of chemistry at the University of Scranton in Pa., said in an emailed press release that the weight loss may have been more, but since the subjects received a lower dose and placebo at some point in the study it may have lessened the overall effect.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Riptide V2™ Safe even Though It Has an Ingredient That Works On Neurotransmitter Levels?

Yes Ofcourse! We wouldn't develop something that endangered or altered the health of any of our customers or staff (since all of us here take it ourselves!) But even though RIPTIDE V2™ contains Phenylethylamine HCl which does work on neurotransmitter levels, it does not pose any major health effects. This is because Phenylethylamine HCl does not put synthetic versions of these neurotransmitters in your body, it simply causes your body to maximize it's natural production by itself. This allows you to experience the euphoric effects of maximized dopamine+nor-epinepherine levels without negative side effects. This works by Phenylethylamine HCl actually working as a reuptake inhibitor, allowing these neurotransmitters to remain in your neural synapse longer, working more efficiently. We have a great article written on this compound (click here)


What Type Of Effects Should I Expect To Experience?

RIPTIDE V2™ is a potent fat-blasting formula that works several different ways. Users can expect to experience drastic increases in not only energy and focus, but mood as well. The ability of RIPTIDE V2™ to maximize your beneficial neurotransmitter levels actually increases your drive to workout and self-motivation. The unique combination of the energy blend provides lasting energy with no crashes or jitters as the presence of phenylethylamine HCl allows us to provide a steady dose of caffeine, but not too much to cause jitters. The phenylethylamine increases the effects of caffeine so you get better effects at safer doses than compared to other fat-burners. These energy compounds raise BMR greatly, which then combined with other compounds that raise the amount of calories you burn every minute and increase your metabolism of Carbs+Fats, you'll maximize shredding results while stay focused, motivated, and energized all day.


When Should I Take RIPTIDE V2™?

We recommend taking 2 capsules of RIPTIDE V2™ daily for maximum results. On training days, we recommend either taking 1 capsule in the morning and 1 prior to your workout if you workout later in the day, or 2 capsules in the morning if that is when you train. On non-training days we recommend taking 1 capsule with breakfast and 1 capsule with lunch. You will experience a drastic awakening after consuming so it's best to take it earlier in the day or prior to a workout.


How Should I Take?

Directions: As a dietary supplement take one (1) capsule in the morning. Do not exceed two (2) capsules in a 24-hour period. Do not take past 4 PM. Use for no longer than 8 weeks straight, followed by an off period of at least 2 weeks before resuming use.
