Dark Labs asked…

How do you like eria jarensis?

Now how does 500mg eria combined with 300mg DMHA sound?

Dark Labs is the first to deliver such a potent pre workout. 

It's not the first time either.

They've done it with CrackHerolean and now Flame.

They’ve made holiday special editions of Crack, like Halloween and Christmas.

They are hard to find but if you do come across them, grab them up but they are extremely strong. 

And now Crack Reloaded is another pre workout that's been released. 

Flame breaks all kinds of records.

It’s packed with 500mg eria jarensis, 300mg DMHA, 300mg caffeine, it’s a monster of a pre workout. 

This is a pre workout that you get if you want the mood and energy, without the banned stimulants like DMAA.

What To Expect

With the giant doses of exotic stimulants here, you’ll be sure to get waves of euphoria, energy and motivation all day long. 

Unlike the hard hitters, like Excelsior, the uplift in mood lasts for hours, you won’t even notice it when it starts to wear off after 8 hours as it’s not as severe of a crash. 

And if you’ve tried Herolean and didn’t like the high doses of yohimbine, you’ll like Flame as it has just under 1.5mg instead of 10mg.


Flame is a monster of a pre workout. 

You’ve probably seen every type of pre workout. 

High doses DMAA, mixed with both DMHA and DMAA, or even all 3 including eria jarensis.

Flame takes what people like the most and uses high doses of it.

On top of 400mg caffeine, there’s 300mg DMHA, and 500mg eria jarensis

The energy is just top notch here and the euphoria is long lasting.

Not to mention, there’s no other pre workout that uses this much eria jarensis. 

People who have taken 300mg eria jarensis will probably be able to handle this much.

Agmatine (1g)

Agmatine is best known for it’s nitric oxide boosting enhancements. 

It acts like a defense when it comes to N.O. and it also has some nootropic benefits as it can uplift mood. 

Agmatine can stimulate nitric oxide synthase, meaning it will elevate nitric oxide production, leaving you with more pumps that last for long periods of time. 

It can also prevent the breakdown of arginine, but since there isn't a source of citrulline in Flame to increase arginine, you’ll still have nasty long lasting pumps here. 

It features a full gram of it here, and along with pumps, it has some nice mental function enhancing benefits.

Creatinol-O-Phosphate (1g)

Creatinol-O-Phosphate, or more commonly referred to as COP, is an endurance enhancer but it's underused and underrated. 

It works similarly to beta alanine, as it can decrease the burning sensation that high volume brings, aka lactic acid. 

This means you'll be able to workout while sustaining high intensity without feeling fatigued. [1]

It prevents the pH level in muscle from dropping too low, allowing you to squeeze more reps at what would usually have you fatigued and giving up. 

While there isn't much research backing up this ingredient, it works well and it works in synergy with creatine, helping with ATP production. 

There's a big 1 gram dose here, since there isn't beta alanine, this is a great way to experiment and see what COP can do without any other ergogenic aid.

Eria Jarensis (500mg)

The biggest dose of Eria Jarensis we’ve seen yet is here in Flame. 

Dark Labs is always pushing the limits of stimulants in their pre workouts, with the massively dosed Crack with 120mg DMAA, and the limited edition along with Herolean which both feature 200mg DMHA and 100mg DMAA.

Instead of using 300mg eria, Dark Labs has gone with a giant 500mg dose. 

Eria is known to increase energy by working as a potent neuromodulator, and while there isn’t enough research on this ingredient, we know it binds to the receptor of the brain. 

It functions as a neurotransmitter and releases dopamine with the receptors that it activates. 

Euphoria, energy and motivation is what you’ll get with eria jarensis. 

Typically, pre workouts will have anywhere between 150mg to 250mg on average.

While some push it to 300mg, like Dark Labs has with the limited edition of Crack, this is the first we’ve seen with this big of a dose at 500mg. 

You’ll get some intense waves of euphoria and lots of energy at this big of a dose.

Caffeine (400mg)

Caffeine is the grandfather of all stimulants, as it has decades of research proving it’s worth for physical and mental enhancements.

There’s a big 300mg dose of caffeine here, and on top of that is 100mg citrate. 

Caffeine citrate is a much faster absorbing form. 

Several studies show this stimulant as an effective performance booster for both high and low intensity exercises. [2]

So on top of 300mg of caffeine, you'll get rapidly absorbing caffeine citrate.  

Theobroma Cacao Extract (300mg)

Here is another ingredient that is typically dosed much lower. 

Theobroma is basically theobromine, and it can increase energy, decrease appetite, enhance thermogenesis and elevate mood. 

Similar to caffeine, theobromine can inhibit adenosine and phosphodiesterase and stops them from taking effect. [3

What makes it stand out from caffeine is that it takes more time to digest and metabolize theobromine. [4]

Flame has both caffeine and theobromine, so you'll be getting energy from multiple sources. 

The benefits from theobromine only start with energy but it ends with much more. 

It can help with weight loss, thanks to its ability to suppress appetite. Outside of it's stimulant properties, studies show theobromine has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties with a wide range of health benefits. [5]

DMHA (300mg)

DMHA is traditionally known as 2-aminoisoheptane, and it's a hardcore stimulant that belongs in a class of stims called aliphatic amines. [6]

This stimulant is often referred to as a king of stimulants because of how strong it is, and it helps being globally available, with the exception of Australia banning the sale of it.

DMHA provides a strong source of focus and energy by releasing catecholamines and it slows down the reuptake of these neurotransmitters. 

At 300mg, you'll want to expect some strong energy and focus especially considering how there's 500mg on top of this.

Hordenine (75mg)

Derived from bitter orange, hordenine is a beta-2 adrenergic agonist. 

It works by increasing the production of adrenaline and noradrenaline. 

It can enhance the body's metabolic output by increasing heart rate and breathing rate. [7]

The big 75mg dose here will help prolong the effects of the stimulants, including eria jarensis, because it can work as a noradrenaline reuptake modulator. 

Naringin (25mg)

Found in grapefruits, naringin is a polyphenol that has brought all the marketing in the grapefruit diet. 

It helps with weight loss but nothing to write home about. [8]

Naringin has great energy effects as it can inhibit phosphodiesterase (PDE) enzymes [9] which works in the body as energy inhibitors. 

Inhibiting PDE enzymes will allow energy production to function at it’s highest so it provides uninterrupted energy while increasing metabolic rate.

Black Pepper Extract (10mg)

When it comes to maximizing absorption and enhancing the bioavailability, black pepper extract is one of the best ingredients to have.

It ensures all the ingredients are used up and utilized by the body, but not only that, it can also enhance fat loss and can lower lipid levels.

Alpha Yohimbine (1.5mg)

Alpha Yohimbine is nearly the same as regular yohimbine, in that it can block alpha-2-adrenergic receptors to help create a fat burning environment.

It can also reduce appetite, enhance male fertility [10]

The 1.5mg is quite good as it's already paired with strong stimulants. 

Unlike yohimbine, it doesn't have the same negative effects of anxiety, headaches, nervousness and irritability that people often complain about. [11]

And it has a range of benefits from increasing energy to improving mood, libido and even appetite suppression. 

Although Flame isn’t made to be a fat burner, don’t be surprised if you lose a few pounds after going through a container.


Flavors shouldn’t matter, it’s the last thing we consider. 

But if it tastes good, we’re all up for it. 

So far there are 3 flavors:

  • Blueberry Lemonade
  • Rainbow Candy
  • Refreshing watermelon

I wouldn’t be surprised if they release much more flavors.

Final Words

While Flame isn’t marketed as a fat burner, it’s arguably a strong thermogenic pre workout. 

Using a massive 500mg dose of eria jarensis, along with 300mg DMHA, 400mg caffeine, and much more. 

The 75mg hordenine will help prolong the effects of the stimulants in here, so there won’t be a crash when you’re using this.
