July 12, 2019

Dynamine, a nature-identical compound of a purine alkaloid found in kucha tea, positioned to support energy, mood, and focus, is now self-affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe). 

Compound Solutions, Inc. (Carlsbad, CA), the exclusive global distributor of patented Dynamine, a nature-identical compound of a purine alkaloid found in kucha tea, announced that the ingredient is now self-affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe). Positioned to support energy, mood, and focus, self-affirmed GRAS status opens the ingredient up for use in foods and beverages. Compound Solutions sees Dynamine as an ideal fit for and disruptor of energy drinks, gaming formulas, high-impact pre-workout products, as well as nootropic, and biohacking formulas. The self-affirmation is the product of six years of research and development, five safety studies, and $600,000 in safety data, says the company.

“We’ve never seen an ingredient with this level of sensory experience - and safety profile - all in one package,” said Matt Titlow, Compound Solutions’ CEO, in a press release. “Dynamine will absolutely change the game in energy, gaming, and biohacking formulas. Now that Dynamine is GRAS, the door is wide open for the largest brands in the world to give their consumers the best possible energy, mood and focus products without worrying about safety.”

“When an energy ingredient like Dynamine achieves GRAS status, we can formulate a product with longevity behind it and we won't have to worry that it is going to hit the FDA’s chopping block at any given moment,” added Jacob Fishback, brand developer and product formulator for Lief Labs (Valencia, CA), in a press release.
