Theacrine is an alkaloid which is structurally similar to that of caffeine, preliminary evidence that suggests there is less tolerance buildup with theacrine compared to that of caffeine.
Theacrine is a natural compound that has been shown to have the ability to increase mental clarity, improve physical performance, and increase mood and motivation. Additionally, it has been shown to enhance and extend the positive effects of caffeine while minimizing its negative side effects (jitters and crash).
Theacrine is unique due to:
- Has a longer half-life [R]
- Has no effect on blood pressure [R]
- Is less likely to disrupt sleep compared to caffeine [R]
- Has reduced tolerance [R]
