Eria Jarensis information

eria jarensis

Eria Jarensis extract is a supplement that has recently received a lot of attention for its positive and stimulating effects. It has many similarities with popular stimulants such as DMAA. Due to the ban on DMAA, this stimulant has become very popular recently. Eria Jarensis extract may not be as strong as DMAA and DMHA, but is nevertheless seen as a good, but milder alternative.

Eria Jarensis extract is also known as:
N, N-Dimethylphenethylamine

When talking about Eria Jarensis extract, people often actually mean N,N-Dimethylphenethylamine (N, N-DMPEA). N,N-DMPEA is the active substance in Eria Jarensis extract. However, it is often referred to as Eria Jarensis extract because N,N-DMPEA was first found in the Eria Jarensis plant, and because of its difficult to pronounce name. Due to this, it is recommended to check the percentage of N, N-DMPEA in products which contain Eria Jarensis extract. After all, a product with a very low percentage of N, N-DMPEA will require much higher doses to function properly.

Functions of Eria Jarensis extract (N,N-DMPEA)

Energy and mood enhancement
Eria Jarensis extract has a stimulating effect on our nervous system. As a result, it can cause an increase in dopamine and norepinephrine in our body [1]. Because of this effect, this supplement can increase the energy level of users. In addition, this can ensure better concentration, focus and alertness. It can also give users a euphoric feeling. Because of these features, this supplement is not only used as a pre-workout, but also throughout the day to support the mood and focus of users.

Based on its comparability with some other stimulants, it appears to be able to function as a fat burner as well. Users also report that it can have an appetite suppressant effect when consumed before a meal. These effects seem likely due to their similarity to stimulants such as DMHA and DMAA. However, it remains to be investigated whether this is actually the case.

Other functions
Users also state that it can potentially reduce feelings of anxiety. In addition, given its similarity to DMHA, it should theoretically be able to function as a bronchodilator [2]. This means that the use of this supplement can dilate the bronchi or the airway branches. This can improve airflow through our body and result in better sports performance.

Who can use Eria Jarensis extract (N,N-DMPEA) ?

This stimulant is mainly used because it can improve our energy level and because it can improve our mood. Eria Jarensis Extract is a strong supplement. However, the stimulant effect is not as strong as that of DMAA or DMHA. This makes this product also suitable for people who do not yet have much experience with pre-workout or nootropic products.

How should I use Eria Jarensis extract ? / Dosages

Currently there are no official dosing recommendations. Based on current knowledge and user feedback, dosages of 125mg are recommended. Use this 1 to 2 times a day. When used as a pre-workout, it should be consumed 15-30 minutes before a workout.

How does this supplement work ?

Eria Jarensis can mimic some of the neurotransmitters of our brain [1]. This allows it to increase dopamine and norepinephrine levels in our body [1]. This can have a positive effect on our energy, concentration, focus and alertness. Traditional phenethylamines are broken down by monoamine oxidase in just 5-12 minutes [3][4]. However, this extract may have a long-lasting effect due to a small difference. Eria Jarensis contains alkyl groups that ensure that monoamine oxidase cannot easily reverse its effect.

Stacking / combining

Eria Jarensis extract can be perfectly combined with various other supplements. For example, it can be combined with creatine, BCAAs and other pre-workout products. Users often choose to combine it with another pre-workout product that does not contain Eria Jarensis (for example: N.O.Xplode or C4). This combination seems to work well as some strong pre-workout products already contain this stimulant. If you are using this combination, it is important to check that you are not consuming too many stimulating ingredients at the same time.

Where does Eria Jarensis extract come from ?

N,N-Dimethylphenethylamine / N,N-DMPEA is the active substance in Eria Jarensis Extract. N,N-DMPEA was first found in the Eria Jarensis plant [5]. That is why N,N-DMPEA is usually referred to as Eria Jarensis extract. However, it has been found that N,N-Dimethylphenethylamine is also found to some extent in shrimp [6]. In addition, N,N-Dimethylphenethylamine can be found to some extent in cheese, dairy products, fish, fruit and meat as an added flavor [7].

Other information (DMAA vs Eria Jarensis)

Eria jarensis is very similar to DMAA and DMHA. Despite this, it is not as strong as DMAA or DMHA in terms of performance enhancement and the duration of its stimulant effects. Hence, it is usually considered a good, but milder alternative. However, there are also users who experience this as positive. Due to the shorter effect, this product may be more suitable if you train late in the evening and use pre-workout. After all, the long and strong effect of DMHA could affect sleep quality if consumed late in the evening.

Safety & competitive use

The active ingredient in Eria Jarensis extract has long been used as a flavoring agent in cheese, dairy, fish, fruit and meat products. The use of N,N-DMPEA or Eria Jarensis Extract has been declared safe by the Expert Panel of the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) as well as by the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) [8][9] . In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) has a document discussing the safety of food additives [9]. The World Health Organization (WHO) lists N,N-DMPEA as a safe food / flavor additive [9].

Competitive use
Eria jarensis is currently legal in most countries. However, the use is no longer allowed by some sports associations. If you participate in professional sports competitions, we recommend that you check with the relevant sports association whether the use of this product is allowed.

Correct use
A dietary supplement can contribute to a healthy and active lifestyle. However, it should not be a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and a varied diet. The recommended dosage should not be exceeded, since side effects may occur otherwise. Temporary side effects of Eria Jarensis extract can include: higher heart rate and higher blood pressure. In rare cases, these side effects can also occur with normal doses. If side effects occur, consumption should be discontinued.

As with any supplement, we advise users to consult a physician before use. In particular if you use medication or have health complaints. This product should not be used in combination with other dopamine enhancers or MAO inhibitors. Also, this product should not be used with high blood pressure or heart problems. In addition, this supplement should not be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Furthermore, this product should not be used by persons under 18 years of age and must be kept out of the reach of children. Keep this product in a cool and dry place to maintain the quality.
