What's new on the market these days? I stopped taking pre workouts over a year ago as they just make me jittery/anxious and counter productive. Even caffeine causes me negative issues now. I've tried EVERY stim going as i enjoy that lift before hitting a gym session.

Everything just causes negatives sadly.

Kigelia africana
Eria Jarensis
Pea
Hordenine
L-dopa
Synephrine
Dmaa
Modafinil

Tried them all!

Etc. They work for an hour and then i just feel anxious and absolutely horrid.

Anything new on the market. I'm a dopamine type of person.

What's new that's worth trying?

How old are you? You get to a certain age and stimulants just make you feel like sh*t for some reason. You might look into some nootropics though.

I'm sensitive to stims but a combination of L theanine and caffeine feels great. A 1:2 ratio is usually recommended. 100mg caffiene with 200mg gives me a feeling like I've slept for 8 hours. No crash or anxiety. I never have time to sleep more than 6.5 hours between work and two young boys so I enjoy the combo on occasion before a meeting, family event or leg day. You'll build a tolerance if you take it every day so I only use it 3-4 times per week and sometimes not at all.

Agreed that combo would help with energy boost. Just getting enough sleep and ensuring I'm consuming enough calories per day does wonders for me. If either of those two are lacking then my mood is lacking.

100% agree. I always try to prioritize sleep and diet over pills.

Phenylpiracetam @ 100-200mg 1x/day is nice. No stim effects really after the first dose or two, but mental boost and creativity rises a small bit for me.

Sabroxy at 200-500mg does … something, I’m not sure what yet. Some reviews make it sound amazing. All it does for me is a very subtle background mental push. Only last 3 - 4 hrs for me usually then I tend to get sleepy when it wears off.

“Zynamite” - Azoth is the brand, I forget the product name. IIRC it’s 50mg caffeine, ~100mg rhodiola, and 100mg zynamite. Does squat for me at recommended doses, but I do get a nice creativity/communication/etc mental push at 5-6 caps without it being too much caffeine also. Worth a try if you can pick it up for ~$20 or less a bottle.

Wanting to try 9-me-bc but I can’t find many US sources. Iirc it is a dri. Tried it?

Agreed. I sometimes forget this as well but then I have to remind myself how powerful diet and sleep are compared to supplements.

KannaEase is great for mood boosting and relaxation benefits.

Some people find that KannaEase is best used as needed while others, like myself, find that it works great as a daily use supplement. It helps me be more relaxed and in a better overall mood and not get frustrated as easily.

Stress & Anxiety Support is a great daily use supplement for stress, anxiety, depression, and mood support.
