Hordenine (N, N-dimethyl-4-hydroxyphenylethylamine) is a substance that has a stimulating effect. For this reason, it is often used to increase training intensity, increase fat loss and to give you more energy. Hordenine can be extracted from the roots of sprouted barley (Hordeum vulgare). It can also be found in bitter oranges (Citrus aurantium) and plants belonging to the families Cactaceae and Acasia.
Functions of hordenine
Hordenine has an adrenaline-like effect due to its ability to release and protect norepinephrine. This increased noradrenaline release and protection, among other things, increases heart rate, improves energy and improves blood flow .
Because of the strong stimulating effects of hordenine, it is a popular supplement among athletes. Research has shown that it actually causes a significant increase in norepinephrine. Which allows this supplement to improve training performance. In addition to providing an energy boost, it has been shown that hordenine has various cognitive benefits. This supplement can, for example, improve focus and concentration.
Hordenine as fatburner
The effects of this strong stimulant also appear to have a positive effect on metabolism and fat loss. A study has shown that hordenine causes a significant increase in energy consumption and fat burning compared to a placebo . Other researchers have shown that this supplement provides more energy when consumed by healthy people . This ensures that more calories are burned, even when you are not training.
As a performance booster / pre-workout, this supplement is best taken about 30 minutes to an hour before a workout. Doses of 50mg are recommended. If this supplement is used as a fat burner, it should be consumed two to three times a day. The first doses should be consumed in the morning and the remaining dose(s) later in the day.
