Eria Jarensis (N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine) is a is a Neuromodulator on the Central Nervous System (CNS) that has become an active in ingredient in many preworkouts, fat burners, and nootropic supplements.
It provides multiple cognitive enhancing effects ranging from focus, energy, and mood elevation.
Where Does Eria Jarensis Come From?
Eria Jarensis — the alkaloid orchid native to China and Southeast Asia that produces N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine — is a plant that produces a stimulant effect. Its extract is the prime source of N-Phenyl Dimethylamine, which has been shown to increase the concentration of noradrenaline and release dopamine in the body, making it a viable preworkout ingredient.
What Does It Do?
In addition to noradrenaline secretion, there is also evidence suggesting that N,N-DMPEA acts as a TAAR1 agonist in humans, and as a 5-HT1A ligand in rats. Some less conclusive research also indicated that it had interaction with MAO-B, most likely as an enzyme substrate and not an inhibitor, according to studies.
The extract can also reduce anxiety and act as a broncodilator, making it a perfect addition to a preworkout formula for athletes looking to test their endurance or who suffer from jitters after stimulant consumption.
As a result, this extract has exploded in popularity over the past few years — gaining increased popularity as time goes by — as ingredients that provide similar cognitive effects have been banned, including ephedrine, AMP-Citrate, and DMAA (which can be purchased from Rats Army).

Despite enjoying legal status across much of the world, it is currently banned in Australia.
Eria Janensis and N,N-DMPEA has been found to be safe for use as a flavoring agent by the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) Expert Panel, putting further concerns about the extract’s safety profile to bed.
Eria Jarensis Extract has begun to find its way into more and more pre-workouts and fat burners on the market as supplement brands warm up to the alkaloid extract.
Dosage and Half-Life
Sadly, it is metabolized quickly by the body and only has a half life of around 5-10 minutes with an onset time of around 5-30 minutes depending on a variety of factors, but some preworkout blends add ingredients to prolong its effects. However, it is advisable to take Eria Janesis shortly before a workout for this reason. Some experts have pointed out that if its effects lasted longer, they could cause issues relating to the dopaminergic system.
It is advised to take dosages between 125mg – 250mg depending on tolerance, experience, and bodyweight of the athlete in question.
Eria Jarensis will be one of the many ingredients featured in our upcoming preworkout Zeus Juice.
