Dopamine Energy Drink

Dopamine energy Drink has to be one of the more original names for an energy drink. Dopamine is actually a brand that sells mostly clothes.

But – like many other brands out there – they’ve added an energy drink in the mix.

What is Dopamine?

Dopamine is “a hormone and neurotransmitter occurring in a wide variety of animals”. It can also be supplied as a medication.

From Wikipedia

Dopamine is commonly associated with the pleasure system of the brain, providing feelings of enjoyment and reinforcement to motivate a person proactively to perform certain activities. Dopamine is released (particularly in areas such as the nucleus accumbens and ventral tegmental area) by naturally rewarding experiences such as food, sex,[4][5] use of certain drugs and neutral stimuli that become associated with them.

Okay… so strong drug overtones – but not quite as overt as calling a drink cocaine.

Caffeine in Dopamine?

These guys have been one of the very few to actually respond to our caffeine queries (most just ignore).

120mg caffeine per 8.4oz can.

And there is no dopamine in Dopamine Energy Drink.

Looks like Dopamine has been discontinued.

    Nice use of a neurotransmitter. That drink may be the first to do so. Next up, Adenosine. Some drink has got to work that title in, it’s the chemical that’s associated with sleep debt.

    WOAH! they responded to an email..thats new… thumbs up to them

  • Max M

    That’s awesome. Love the name, definitely targeted for those that know what dopamine even is. (me) Where can I pick this up?

  • caffeinedream

    False Advertising! I was so excited when I saw the title on this one, hoping for an energy drink with dopamine, that’d be so sweet. I kinda think that such a drink would be far more dependency-inducing than caffeine alone. And probably controlled by the FDA, much more than your typical energy drink.

    DAMMIT. I really wanted to try the dopamine. I’ve experienced raised levels of dopamine through video games and other stuff before but I was wondering what it would be like to artificially do it.

  • scum1

    Nice can design. Vegas in a can?

  • alphabet

    UMMM… yeah if it actually had dopamine it would probably become addicting like most actual drugs so uhh… yeah, obviously not gonna have it in there

  • fiddlerontheground

    where can i find some?

  • tequila

    Hello? people actually thought this drink would have Dopamine in it? hahaha

  • Max

    Obviously no dopamine, but where can I pick one up. The title makes me want to buy it anyway.

  • dan

    dopamine isn’t actually in it, even if it were, dopamine can’t cross the blood brain barrier (it’s synthesized inside the brain) so giving a person dopamine would do nothing.

    @mike s …..dush

  • tried it

    Did some work for someone associated with the brand and got hooked up with a case to try out. I regularly drink Red Bull or whatever else when I need to stay awake for a long drive and to be honest this stuff effects you way differently.. Well maybe “way” differently is putting it too strong but apparently they’re trying do go a different route than just traditional caffeine and you can unquestionably tell. The taste reminds me of Sierra Mist with half the syrup (meaning like the flavor intensity). As is stated on the can it’s obviously geared towards use in drink mixing. It has more of a “complimenting” flavor as opposed to a dominating one. I found this site because I’m sitting here buzzed on it and I started Googling all the ingredients to see why and eventually landed here. Give it a try.

    Just the skinny on dopamine, the neurotransmitter:

    Dopamine is produced within the brain. Elevated levels are associated with thrilling and exciting activities.

    Dopamine is a protein, and if swallowed would quickly be “denatured” (chemically altered) by stomach acid. Ingesting dopamine would have no pharmaceutical effect on the brain.

    Injection of dopamine would not effect the brain either — it cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. It would, however, stimulate the body’s secondary nervous system — the autonomic nervous system — inducing a sympathetic response: Increased heart rate and blood pressure would result.

    There is no actual dopamine in Dopamine Energy Drink. As explained above, ingested dopamine would simply be broken down in the stomach and have no effect on either the central or autonomic nervous systems.
