Come and join us on the dark side.
It tastes delicious over here.

I use the int version because I'm in the uk. This might sound stupid but if I use it at 1-2 scoops and I'm at work or sitting around, basically anything non physical I feel nothing but If I use it as a pre about 10 mins into the workout I can feel it, not full energy but more focus? Its almost like like lifting activates it?
Anyone know a reason for this or have a similar experience?

I picked up the aus / nz formula today thinking it was just yohimbine missing, but the olive leaf and choline bitatrate are also missing replaced by a couple of others i cant remember. Any reason? Loved my first serve though.

Well one of the earlier posts stated the only difference was the SA2 the had been removed so took a punt on it. Ive looked up the glucuronoblahblah and bacopa ingredients which do sound decent, but still :/ anyways i got a good smooth stimulant effect and felt pretty good so its not all bad i guess.

It isn't very complicated. Allow me to explain.
Australia have very different laws.
- International version (EU/UK) contains no yohimbe (prohibited my the MHRA) and heightened doses of other ingredients to compensate. Other than that it is exactly the same as the US version.
- Australian version has had to have a few changes past this.

no it's not complicated, I just didn't do the research required to realize that even though I was willing to compromise on one ingredient missing, turns out there were a few more.
I'll run it anyway because as mentioned Ive enjoyed the servings I've had so far and PES have a great rep. Also, I am happy with the added ingredients after reading up on them.

US Alphamine was great. I was lucky enough to get it through once, haven't tried again. Don't think I would bother with Aus version. I really wanted to try Enhanced but it got seized. *******s. Don't understand why yohimbe is banned, ridiclulous law. Has anyone had any issues getting anabeta elite through? I ordered some the other day and am waiting delivery.

so is there really no way of getting the US version WITHIN Europe?
I'm asking because German customs are f*****g awful! They've blocked anything I ordered from the States so far, that's why I won't be doing that again.

There was no need to have the Aus one watered down so much.
I expect nothing less from flush though.

International/UK Alphamine is definitely for real.
Get AT2 (new formula) if you want Yohimbine. Some sneaky UK retailers have that in stock

If you get the chance, give UK Alphamine a whirl some time - it's great even without Yohimbine.

Slight thread sidetrack, but does anyone know when the new flavour of Alphamine (cherry limeade) will be available in the UK?
02-02-2014, 04:37 AM
Best bet is probably to jump on the insider, when it launches.
These UK retailers are taken "forever" to get the new products.
But is it possible to get US Alphamine through customs in UK, if you get on the insider?

We obviously cannot comment on customs policy regarding prohibited ingredients.
To be safe, I always recommend requesting it at our distributor immediately. If a few people request something they tend to place an order straight away rather than a few weeks after it's release.

Hello forum members.
I'm a newbie here and would like to share my own experience with PES Alphamine, taking into account that it is purely subjective. I am in Australia and bought the US version online. Because I was eager to try the product, I was delighted to have found it at my gym in Australia. I had no idea that the formula was different. I bought the Pine Orange flavor in Australia and after trying two small scoops, I found the flavor sickening, I felt jittery and felt a bit of a crash later. I decided that this product was not for me.
However, I received the bottle I ordered from the US today. The first thing I noticed was that the Australian version says 'powerful redefining powder' on the front, while the US version says 'powerful thermogenic powder'. I then noticed a difference in ingredients. This was the only reason that I decided to try it. I took two small scoops with 500ml of water. Firstly, the flavor was wonderful (raspberry lemonade) and did not make me feel sickly. Secondly, I do not feel jittery at all and the energy and mood feels uplifting and smooth.
Now, it could be the difference of the flavor itself that took away my nauseous feelings, but I do not know how to explain the phenomenal difference in elevation of mood minus the horrid jittery feeling I had with the Australian version.
Here is a list of the Australian ingredients as seen at the back of the product (forgive me if this has already been mentioned as I have only read about 10 posts in here):
Per serve: Caffiene 320 mg Taurine 2000 mg
Ingredients: Taurine, Citric Acid, L-Tyrosine, Flavours, Anti-caking agent (551), Caffeine, Sweetners (955, 950), Higenamine Hydrochloride, Citrus aurantium Extract, N-Methyl-Tyramine, Selaginella tamariscina Extract (AmentoMAX tm), Lindera aggregata extract (Boldine), Auraptene, Cirsium oligophyllum Extract, Colour (102, 110, 129)
Phew!!!! I have no idea as to what several of these ingredients are, but I did notice the Australian version appears to have more caffeine in it. I say just from my own personal experience, the US version 'feels' smoother.
Added: I just remembered why I also felt put off the Australian version: my heart was pounding! I took exactly the same amount with the US version, no pounding heart.

Final verdict: training after taking it felt delightful. No crashes. The US version works better for me (than the Australian one)

Three new flavors being released as I'm sure everyone noticed, so be on that insider list.
