DMAA is back at Blackstone Labs!
We’re happy to announce the latest fat burner Blackstone Labs, King Cobra, and it’s a game-changer, being the first supplement to include both DMAA (labeled as 1,3 Dimethylamylamine) alongside the next-generation PEA-based mood booster, eria jarensis extract.
But that’s not all there is. If you like thermogenics, you’re going to love this, with a one-two trademarked combination of Paradoxine (grains of paradise) and Capsimax (capsaicin) for some serious heat…
Blackstone Labs has stated that it will be available in early June, so sign up for PricePlow’s Blackstone Labs alerts so that you’re notified when it comes out and when the prices drop:

The King Cobra Ingredients
Blackstone isn’t pulling any punches with their newest fat burner. It’s fully decked out with stims, thermogenics, feel good ingredients, and fat-storage blockers. If their first release post Hi-Tech merger is any indication, Blackstone is back in a BIG way.
Note: Doses listed below are based on 1 serving (i.e. 1 capsule).
Trixanthin Complex (375mg)
King Cobra’s backbone energy matrix is a compilation of three extracts including Ilex Guayusa, Green Tea and Theobroma Cacao which have been standardized to yield 200mg caffeine, 45mg EGCG, 25mg each Theobromine and Theophylline.
Traditionally consumed by Peruvian and Ecuadorian natives and other indigenous populations as a morning stimulant, Ilex Guayusa is a plant rich in caffeine and theobromine, as well as assorted flavonoids, sugars, and chlorogenic acids.[1,2]
Green Tea Extract
Green tea leads little introduction, it’s loaded with all sorts of polyphenols and catechins, notably EGCG, which have a number of cardiovascular and fat-burning benefits.[3,4]
Theobroma Cacao is taxonomical name for the cacao tree or cocoa tree. It’s seeds are the cocoa beans, from which cocoa powder, chocolate, and cocoa nibs are derived. It’s also rich in the xanthine compounds theobromine and theophylline, which is why it’s included in this trifecta of xanthine compounds.
Eria Jarensis (150mg)
Eria Jarensis is a powerful PEA-like ingredient prized for its N-phenethyldimethylamine content. This amine gives Eria an extremely pronounce “euphoric” feeling that just never seems to quit. Plus, it’s longer lasting than regular PEA due to the unique molecular structure.
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed this ingredient in numerous other pre workouts and fat burners we tested over the past year or so, and can’t sing its praises enough. But the big news here is that we’ve never seen or tried Eria Jarensis alongside DMAA! That is where this fat burner might take things to a whole new level.

Triple-Heat Thermogenic Intensifier (300mg)
Ready to turn the heat up? You better be with this triple-threat thermogenic matrix led off by Paradoxine®.
The premier Grains of Paradise extract available, Paradoxine is an awesome non-stimulant thermogenic ingredient that increases energy expenditure and mobilizes fat from brown adipose tissue (BAT).
We’ve got A LOT more info available on Paradoxine®, that you can find in our in-depth article titled Grains of Paradise: Fat Fighting Spice of the Goddesses.
This is our favorite non-stimulant fat burning ingredient, and we’re excited to see it in here!
The temperature is still rising with this cayenne pepper alkaloid!
Chile peppers are incredibly tasty and a great way to spice up your food, but they also accelerate weight loss. Capsaicin is the potent compound inside of chile peppers, such as cayenne, that give it its quintessential heat.
Capsimax is the patented capsaicin extract shown to increase thermogenesis and decrease appetite.[8,9]
As if this wasn’t hot enough with the stim blend and those grains of paradise… Blackstone is really going all out on thermo with King Cobra. Capsimax + Paradoxine = Serious thermogenesis!
BioPerine really needs know introduction. It’s been used extensively throughout the supplement industry for its ability to enhance the bioavailability of other compounds present in supplements. But, it also enhances fat loss and thermogenesis thanks to piperine, the pungent alkaloid inside black pepper responsible for its bite.
Erythropalum scandens (50mg)
Native to Southern Asia, Erythropalum Scandens is an herb widely used for its medicinal qualities. Researchers investigated the plant have discovered roughly 40 bioactive compounds in its leaves, some of which enhance energy levels and mood.
Of particular interest, are N-Benzyl-2-phenylethylamine, 2-Phenylethylamine, and N,N-Diethyl-2-Phenylethylamine which exhibit a longer half-life than regular PEA and provide a superior mood and stim kick over plain old PEA.
If Eria Jarensis above wasn’t enough PEA goodness for you, you’ll get even more possibilities here. King Cobra is shaping up to be the king of mood-enhancing fat burners at this rate!
1,3 Dimethylamylamine HCl (45mg)
The king of aliphatic amines has returned to Blackstone Labs after a brief hiatus. DMAA is known far and wide for its stimulating and mood-elevating effects, and it functions all the better when paired alongside caffeine. Anecdotally, DMAA also exhibits fairly strong appetite suppression, which helps eliminate any hunger cravings hardcore dieters get from time to time.
This dose reminds us of Hi-Tech Pharma’s Fastin dose, but with newer ingredients like the PEA from eria jarensis instead of acacia rigidula. Again, this will be the first time Eria has been mixed with DMAA, so it’s going to be a fun ride.
Citrus Aurantium (42.5mg)
To keep the fat burning going, King Cobra includes Citrus Aurantium, standardized to 25mg synephrine. A safe and effective ephedra substitute[12,13], citrus aurantium is used far and wide in fat burners.
Synephrine acts on the Beta-2 and Beta-3 receptors in your body[14,15], which stimulates the release of triglycerides (lipolysis). Your body essentially shifts to burning fat for fuel at this point, which bodes well for your weight loss aspirations.
Yohimbe Extract (22mg)
King Cobra’s final fat burning ingredient is Yohimbe extract standardized to Yohimbine, alpha yohimbine, and 11-hydroxy yohimbine. Yohimbine is a powerful stimulant that helps suppress appetite and block fat storage.
The only thing we wish we knew was the total yohimbine yield in King Cobra, because it’s a make or break ingredient for many individuals.
Wow – Count us in! This pretty much has all of our favorite ingredients wrapped in one.
To assess your tolerance, begin by consuming 1 capsule in the A.M. with water and food for 3-5 days. After assessing tolerance, you may add an additional capsule in the early afternoon.
Blackstone Labs advises to not consume more than 2 capsules daily.
Florida’s most hardcore brand is back in business!
DMAA is back at Blackstone, and the company’s first post-no DMAA release is quite a doozy. King Cobra packs all the hallmarks of a quality fat burner plus DMAA. It all adds up to a win for Blackstone Labs and a huge sign that they are back in the game.
