1,3 Replacement? Dynamine+Teacrine: NEW Stimulant Combo for Intense Energy

1,3 Replacement? Dynamine+Teacrine: NEW Stimulant Combo for Intense Energy

If you ever tried a preworkout formulated with "1,3", you are probably missing it. This stimulant was choice for smooth -yet- intense energy. 

In September of 2018, Axis Labs® released the preworkout Hailstorm- an improved formula of Rainmaker released January of 2016. Rainmaker was different, containing 25mg per serving of TeaCrine®, a new stimulant on the market making big waves.

But with the release of Hailstorm, Axis Labs® DOUBLED the amount of TeaCrine to 50mg per serving and added 100mg of a new stimulant, Dyanamine- for very good reason that we will get to below. Axis Labs® also increase the caffeine from 200mg per serving to 300mg- making it an incredibly intense preworkout reminiscent of the days of "1,3". 

If you're anxious to order Hailstorm, here is where you can find it and use Coupon Code FBHS15 at checkout for a 15% discount. 

If you'd like to understand why the combination of TeaCrine® and Dynamine make an unreal stimulant duo, it's important to first understand each of them.  

WHAT IS TEACRINE?

TeaCrine® is a patent-pending compound containing pure theacrine, which can be
found in natural sources such as the Camellia assamica var.kucha tealeaf, coffee and certain exotic fruits. A nature-identical compound, TeaCrine® delivers energy, mental clarity, and improved motivation and mood. It does not increase heart rate or blood pressure and is not a stimulant.

WHAT IS DYNAMINE? 

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.

WHAT MAKES DYNAMINE™ DIFFERENT FROM TEACRINE?

Similar mechanisms of action, but a different experience:

But the combination of the compounds creates a knock-out-punch due to Dynamine's early onset and intense effects and TeaCrine's more prolonged effects on energy, mood and focus. Along with the 300mg of caffeine per serving, this combo of Dynamine and TeaCrine make Hailstorm a truly power packed preworkout longed by anyone missing the stim fueled preworkouts of the past.

But Hailstorm is much better than the "pre's" of yesteryear because of its more rounded formula, including 3.2g of Beta Alanine per serving, 1 gram of MagnaPower creatine chelate, DOUBLE the HydroMax found in Rainmaker plus the addition of Agmatine Sulfate.

All The Reasons To Use A Pre-Workout

All The Reasons To Use A Pre-Workout

Even More Reasons To Use A Pre-Workout

For serious athletes and elite body builders, it’s common knowledge that a pre-workout can make the difference during an intense training sessions. But if you’re new to these fields or lifestyle, you might feel a little confused as to why you need to include a pre-workout supplement into your exercise regimen.


As a leading producer of pre-workout products, as well as post-workout amino recovery products, Axis Labs has carefully studied the science behind the purpose of a pre-workout. In this blog, we’ll discuss some of the reasons behind using a pre-workout product.


You’ll Feel More Energetic And Alert

One of the first things you’ll notice when you take a pre-workout is that you feel more awake and aware as you workout. Most pre-workout supplements include a measure of caffeine in their specialized formulas. This caffeine stimulates your nervous system, leaving you feeling brighter and more engaged. You’ll be provided with a boost of energy that can help you get started in your workout, and in many cases, can keep you going through the entirety of your workout. Some pre-workout products, like our HAILSTORM pre-workout supplement utilizes creatine, which increases the amount of stored energy in your muscles. This means that your muscles can expend more energy for longer.


You Can Workout Harder And Longer

One of the greatest issues any athlete or bodybuilder experiences is burn out. It’s that feeling when you hit the gym strong for the first 20 minutes of your workout, and then you have a hard time sustaining that pace, or simply lack of entirely. This occurs for a lot of reasons, but in many cases, it’s simply because your body lacks the nutrients it needs to continue working out. Leading pre-workout energy supplements, like the ones available at Axis Labs, include ingredients like Nitrates and Beta-Alanine.


Both of these ingredients help you push through that barrier you may feel at the beginning of the workout. Nitrates are broken down by the body and converted into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide runs in short supply when your body is diverting oxygen to other parts of your body. By improving the amount of nitric oxide in your body, you’re expanding your blood vessels, which increases your blood flow. This means that more oxygen is being moved to the muscle groups that need it most.


Similarly, Beta-Alanine helps provide your body long-lasting energy. This ingredient has been proven to improve your performance when you workout doing moderately intense activities, like lifting and squats. This is because Beta-Alanine turns into Carnosine, which buffers the amount of lactic acid that coats your muscles. The Carnosine allows your body to keep working through “the burn” you feel as a result of the lactic acid.

They Reduce Muscle Breakdown

We’ve all experienced the frustration of hitting the gym hard, seeing obvious, visible gains in our muscles, only to have those gains fade away the next morning, or even a few hours later. This is because your body is lacking the amino acids it needs to sustain these gains. A pre-workout drink is balanced with the right amount of BCAAs, or Branched-Chain Amino Acids, that your body needs. These amino acids allow you to recover more quickly, and allow your muscles to start repairing themselves even as you move on to working out another part of your body. Amino acids will also help you feel less sore after a long workout.  

Looking for a complete pre-workout product that will improve your performance, and reduce your post-workout recovery time? Then it’s time to start including pre-workout supplements from Axis Labs into your supplement routine. We offer start-of-the-art and proven supplements that can help you reach the next level of your fitness goals.

What Are Testosterone Boosters?

Axis Labs What Are Testosterone Boosters Hypertest

When you’re looking to get the most out your workout, you’ll want to start investigating workout supplements and nutrition products. In many cases, products like these might help you work out harder for longer and see longer-lasting results. At Axis Labs, we create high-quality workout supplements to help enhance your healthy lifestyle. Some of our best selling products are designed to help raise your levels of testosterone. Products like these are commonly referred to as testosterone boosters, but what exactly are they?

What is testosterone?

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it’s important we take a step back and look at the very thing our product impacts. Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone that is found in all humans, as well as other animals. In men and women, testosterone is produced by their primary sex organs, for men, that’s the testicles, and in women, that’s the ovaries. The body begins to produce testosterone during the years of puberty, and production begins to wane after age 30 or so.

Testosterone affects a variety of functions in the body. Generally, it is connected to sex drive and sperm production. That said, it also can affect bone and muscle mass and growth (1). Testosterone can also impact the fat that men store in their bodies, and it is connected to the production of blood cells. Testosterone levels can also affect someone’s mood. The testosterone levels in the body are controlled by the brain and pituitary gland (2).

So Why Would You Need It Boosted?

While a decrease in the production of testosterone is a natural part of the aging process, a decline in production can have an impact on the health of some people. When men are experiencing a period of low testosterone, they might experience:

  • Decreased sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Frequent feelings of fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Feelings of depression
  • A sense of low self-esteem
  • Thinning body hair
  • More delicate bones

When viewed in relation to your workout, your testosterone levels play a deciding factor in how you build and maintain muscle mass.

Low levels of testosterone can cause muscle loss, a process called muscle wasting. While muscle loss is perhaps the last, and most dramatic sign of low testosterone, until that point, you’ll likely feel more tired more easily, and feel like you aren’t as productive during your workouts as you once were. Your muscles are naturally prepared to accept testosterone thanks to receptors called androgen receptors. When these receptors bind with testosterone, the fibers that make up your muscles are maintained. When your body doesn’t produce as much testosterone, that maintenance begins to halt and the muscles begin to atrophy.

At the same time, low testosterone allows fat to begin to develop and build in the body, in particular around the stomach. Fat cells lead to the production of the aromatase enzyme. The enzyme converts testosterone into estrogen, which develops fat deposits in your chest, hips, and thighs (3). This, in turn, creates a cycle that keeps your muscles from regaining their mass, strength, and toned appearance. That’s because low testosterone and increased fat lead to fatigue and depression (4), which can prevent you from exercising, leading to increased weight gain, and more fat.

What are the boosters?

So the need for a balanced testosterone level, or even an increased level, is obvious. Without the proper amount of testosterone in your body, you’ll begin to see the fruits of your labor at the gym melt away. If you want your efforts to be rewarded with toned, strong muscles, you have to keep your testosterone levels up.

That’s where testosterone boosters, like HYPERTEST XTR from Axis Labs, come into play. These supplements are specifically designed to help you improve your testosterone levels.

What Do They Do?

At Axis Labs, we only use ingredients in our boosters that are proven to enhance the look and feel of your muscles and support your testosterone levels. Included in our HYPERTEST XTR testosterone booster are ingredients like:

  • Zinc which stimulates gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which is important for healthy testosterone production.
  • Magnesium increases testosterone secretion and improves the functioning of your musculoskeletal system.
  • Vitamin B6 has been linked to your body’s ability to synthesize testosterone. Low levels of B6 can prevent your body from producing as much testosterone as you want.
  • Ashwagandha has been connected to increased testosterone and sperm production and activity.

By creating a perfect balance of these ingredients, Axis Labs has created a product that can help you with your testosterone. When your testosterone levels are adequate, your workouts will be more productive, as your muscles are ready to be developed and strengthened. Your gains will be sustained, and you’ll be able to sport that cut, muscled look that you’re looking for.

The Missing Ingredient that Makes Keto Easy

The Missing Ingredient that Makes Keto Easy

The ketogenic diet is growing in popularity every day and for good reason. The "keto" diet has been scientifically proven to offer a host of health benefits, from burning fat to reducing inflammation, increasing energy and mental clarity.

That being said, keto introduces physiological changes not common with most diets. For example, while you are becoming "fat adapted" (energy created from fat versus glycogen), the body lacks both glycogen and ketone bodies for energy. This extreme fatigue can last for days giving it the nickname "keto flu". 

Once fat adapted, hosts of other physiological changes, such as lower-than-usual energy levels in the morning, dehydration and hunger pains, can make keto challenging. While all these effects are worth the benefits of keto, it's important to learn the bio-hack to mitigate these effects. 

We at Axis Labs are big believers in the keto lifestyle. When challenged with making life easier for keto dieters, we recognized the need to solve more than one problem.

This is why we created Ketorush™ the best supplement to assist the keto diet. Ketorush is not only the most effect at eliminating fatigue and hunger by spiking ketones and providing the right amount of natural caffeine. Ketorush helps with dehydration through a precision blend of electrolytes, like coconut water. Lastly, Ketorush is also delicious (if you’ve ever taken BHB salts before, you know how important this is). Choose from our two tasty flavors: Watermelon Lemonade and Orange Mango!

Great taste aside, this product is full of the most important ingredients for a supplement for the keto diet to include. Yes, the exogenous ketones in this tasty product rapidly induce ketosis, but this only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what this keto aid can offer you: increase endurance, clear brain fog and boost mental clarity. Gluten-Free. Dairy Free. Vegan. Non-GMO. Zero sugars or carbs. Sweetened with Stevia. The perfect keto product.

What are Exogenous Ketones?

Ketones are the natural compounds your liver makes when it metabolizes fatty acid. An exogenous ketone means that the ketone came from outside the body, as opposed to endogenous ketones, which are made inside the body. When you’re on keto (or any low-carb diet), the cells in your body use ketones for creating energy. There is more and more clinical research being conducted that provides evidence that taking ketone supplements is beneficial for improving cognitive function, elevating energy, supporting blood sugar balance, and enhancing athletic performance, among other benefits. These exciting revelations from the scientific community are the reason why we created this innovative keto supplement that includes exogenous ketones, among other powerful ingredients to support performance in a variety of areas, but particularly in athletic performance.

Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) Salts

There are three ketones: acetone, acetoacetic acid (AcAc), and beta-hydroxybutyric acid (BHB). BHB supplements have gained popularity among keto enthusiasts, and it isn’t hard to understand why. BHB is the most potent ketone, which is why we have chosen to include BHB salts as the ketone is Ketorush. This means that consuming Ketorush can almost immediately put your body into nutritional ketosis (usually within 20 minutes).

Kickstart Ketosis and Enhance Your Energy

When you’re in the market to buy exogenous ketones, not only is this product highly effective for inducing ketosis, it offers a host of other benefits through the other ingredients in our supplement, which we have listed below.

Natural Caffeine from Green Tea

This keto supplement also gives you a clear, long-lasting, and effective energy boost due to its caffeine content. We use green tea as a natural and healthy source of caffeine for our ketosis supplement. This ensures that not only are you able to enhance your keto diet, you’re able to take your physical and mental performance to the next level.

Caffeine is an essential performance enhancer for athletes. You think smarter, move faster, perform longer, and are more motivated to succeed. Many people like to include caffeine in their preworkout supplement for that extra boost, and with Ketorush, you can do so while gaining all of the other benefits of the best keto supplement on the market. Even if you aren’t using it for your athletic performance, the caffeine in Ketorush can help anyone, from students pulling all-nighters to casual gym goers to office workers with a long day ahead of them.

Electrolytes

When you are in ketosis, electrolytes are excreted much quicker than usual. When your electrolytes are low, you are at greater risk for dehydration, and your performance will be impacted. This is especially true when you are exercising, which increases sweat production, causing your body to excrete even more electrolytes and water. Therefore, it’s in your best interest to prioritize an electrolyte supplement when you’re keto. Every serving of Ketorush offers more than 1500 mg of phosphate salts and raw coconut water concentrate, providing you with the electrolytes you need to stay hydrated and perform optimally.

Essential Vitamins

At Axis Labs, we want our products to promote a healthy lifestyle, which is why we include these three essential vitamins in Ketorush.

  • Vitamin A: Vitamin A is important for organ function, including your heart, kidneys, and lungs. It is also essential for immune support, reproduction, and vision.
  • Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 supports a variety of parts of the body, from our brains to our digestive systems to our metabolism.  
  • Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 keeps our blood and nerves healthy. This powerhouse of a vitamin also helps with immune health, energy, heart health, and slowing the impact of aging.

  • Benefits of Ketorush

    • Induces ketosis, quickly and effectively
    • Enhances energy and cognition
    • Reduces appetite and cravings for sugar
    • Improves athletic performance
    • Supports balanced blood sugar and insulin metabolism
    • Helps burn fat and build muscle
    • Combats inflammation
    • Comes in two delicious flavors: Watermelon Lemonade and Orange Mango
