Napalm Red, White & Boom Ingredients

Every tub of Napalm Red, White & Boom comes with 20 servings. For optimal results, ‘Merica Labz recommends taking one scoop 20 to 30 minutes before exercise. However, with 350 milligrams of caffeine per serving, and some additional exotic stimulants, start with half a serving to assess your tolerance.

Here’s what one serving (~19 grams) of Napalm Red, White & Boom contains:

Karate-Chop Performance Blend

  • L-Citrulline – 6000mg

    'Merica Labz Napalm Ingredients

    Not only is Napalm Red, White and Boom a powerful pre-workout, but it’s also a strong thermogenic!

    L-citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that increases nitric oxide production indirectly when it’s converted into another amino acid called L-arginine. Nitric oxide is a chemical messenger that causes blood vessel vasodilation (expansion). The increased diameter of blood vessels helps deliver oxygen-rich blood to working muscles more efficiently.[1,2]

    Moreover, the body is better able to move metabolic waste, such as lactic acid, away from working muscles. Not only does this increase performance, but it also enhances your ability to get a pump.[1,2]

    L-citrulline is also involved in the urea cycle, which is responsible for removing ammonia, a highly toxic molecule.[1,2] Therefore, the amino acid may also help with adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. Studies have shown that supplementing with L-citrulline prior to exercise can:

    • Reduce fatigue
    • Increase performance
    • Decrease post-exercise soreness
    • Lower blood pressure[1,2]

    With a massive dose of 6 grams of L-citrulline per scoop, you’re guaranteed to get all of the benefits the amino acid has to offer.

  • Beta-Alanine – 3200mg

    Beta-alanine is also a non-essential amino acid, meaning that the body naturally produces it. Along with the essential amino acid L-histidine, beta-alanine is a direct precursor to carnosine, a dipeptide molecule found in skeletal muscle. The amino acid’s ability to increase carnosine levels is also how it boosts muscular endurance.[3] Since carnosine is a hydrogen ion buffer, it reduces the amount of lactic acid in muscles.

    Lactic acid is a metabolic waste produced by energy systems during intense exercise. Excessively high levels of lactic acid can significantly impair the body’s ability to regenerate ATP, resulting in fatigue. Carnosine can help delay the accumulation of lactic acid, leading to improved muscular endurance and performance. Several studies have shown that beta-alanine is an effective ergogenic aid, especially during activities lasting between one and four minutes.[3]

  • Betaine Anhydrous – 2500mg

    'Mercia Labz FMJ

    Fire up the muscle building process with ‘Mercia Labz FMJ!

    Betaine anhydrous, also known as trimethylglycine, is an organic compound that’s classified as both a methyl donor and osmolyte.

    By serving as an osmolyte, betaine draws water into muscle cells, which

    • Promotes hydration
    • Improves muscular pumps
    • Enhances cell’s resilience to external stressors[4,5]

    By serving as a methyl donor, betaine assists in reducing homocysteine. Homocysteine is an amino acid that’s formed methionine, an essential amino acid, metabolizes. Higher than normal levels of homocysteine can negatively affect several physiological functions, most notably muscle protein synthesis.[4,5]

    Moreover, high homocysteine levels are associated with heart disease. So supplementing with betaine not only improves your performance and body composition but may also improve your cardiovascular health.

    Betaine carries out its effects by donating a methyl group to homocysteine, converting it back into methionine, which is then used to produce creatine. Multiple studies have shown that supplementing with 2.5 grams of betaine enhances:

    • Power output
    • Strength
    • Lean muscle mass
    • Endurance
    • Fat loss[4,5]

    Since Naplam Red, White & Boom is all about amplifying performance and fat loss, 2.5 grams of betaine is a great addition to the formula.

Bleeding Eyes Focus Blend

  • L-Tyrosine – 1000mg

    'Merica Labz Napalm Sangria

    Saigon Sangria is a never before seen flavor from ‘Merica Labz.

    L-tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid that’s primarily used to synthesize three neurotransmitters:

    • Dopamine – contributes to motivation, memory, mood, and overall sense of well-being
    • Norepinephrine – enhances fatty acid metabolism, blood glucose levels, and respiration
    • Epinephrine – increases cardiac output and blood glucose levels

    A study published in Military Medicine found that low levels of the neurotransmitters listed above lead to a substantial reduction in cognitive and physical performance.[4] They also showed that supplementing with L-tyrosine prior to a stressful situation, such as exercise, can enhance neurotransmitter production and increase cellular firing in the brain.[4]

    Simply put, tyrosine supplementation prevents the drop-off in dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine levels. Thus, enhancing mental focus, energy, and ability to adapt to stress.

  • Caffeine Anhydrous – 350mg

    Napalm Red, White & Boom has other ingredients for raising energy levels, such as halostachine and Eria jarensis, so ‘Merica Labz decided to go with 350 milligrams of caffeine, which is slightly lower than their “A Bomb” edition released in late 2020. We still consider 350 milligrams a substantial dose, so start with half a scoop!

    Caffeine anhydrous is one of the most common ingredients in pre-workouts and thermogenic because of how safe and effective it is. Caffeine can increase both physical and mental energy by inhibiting adenosine from binding to its receptor.[5,6] Adenosine is a nucleoside that decreases neural activity, leading to fatigue and difficulty concentrating.

    In terms of fat loss, caffeine inhibits the enzyme that breaks down cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), called phosphodiesterase.[5,6] cAMP is a critical secondary messenger that assists in metabolizing fatty acids and glucose. So low levels of cAMP are not very conducive to optimizing fat burning. Moreover, caffeine can decrease pain perception, which may help you exercise for longer periods of time.[5,6]

  • N-Phenylethyl Dimethylamine Citrate (Eria jarensis) – 300mg

    'Mercia Labz A Bomb

    Looking for more caffeine and less heat? Try A Bomb Red, White and Boom!

    To further improve energy and focus, Napalm Red, White & Boom contains 300 milligrams of a powerful stimulant called N-phenylmethyl dimethylamine citrate (DMPEA). As you can see from the label, ‘Merica Labz uses Eria jarensis extract as the primary source of DMPEA. This stimulant expresses its effects by increasing the release of catecholamines, such as noradrenaline and dopamine.[7]

    Noradrenaline is a neurotransmitter that’s s released from adrenal glands in response to stress. Thus, noradrenaline plays a crucial role in the sympathetic nervous system, which is active during exercise. Noradrenaline primes the body for fight or flight by increasing lipolysis, blood glucose levels, and respiration.

    Dopamine, on the other hand, helps improve mood, motivation, cognition, and attention. Not only does DMPEA boost energy levels and focus, but it’s also known for producing euphoric effects.[7] So after taking Napalm Red, White & Boom, you may not want to stop training!

    The story and details on this ingredient go further. You can read about them in our article titled Eria Jarensis Extract /N-phenethyl dimethylamine: The Next Big Thing?

  • Alpha GPC 50% – 300mg

    To promote acetylcholine production, Napalm Red, White & Boom uses 300 milligrams of alpha-GPC, which is short for alpha-glyceryl phosphorylcholine. Alpha-GPC supplies the body with an exogenous source of choline, an essential nutrient that’s used for acetylcholine synthesis. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that’s highly concentrated in neuromuscular gap junctions (where the central nervous system interacts with skeletal muscle). So acetylcholine is crucial for carrying out muscular contractions.

    Alpha-GPC is commonly used in various sports nutrition supplements because of its ability to increase:

    • Focus
    • Mental energy
    • Mind-to-muscle connection
    • Strength
    • Performance[8-10]
  • Halostachine – 100mg

    'Merica Labz Pre Pump

    Stack these two together for an epic workout!

    Halostachine comes from a plant called halostachys capsica. It’s a powerful stimulant that’s rapidly metabolized and absorbed in the body. Its effects are felt very soon after consumption, making it ideal for pre-workout and providing a quick energy boost. Napalm Red, White and Boom has 100 milligrams of halostachine to round out the comprehensive Bleeding Eyes Focus blend.

    Positive effects from Halostachine may include:

    • Improved mood
    • Enhanced energy
    • Increased lipolysis (fat burning)
    • Suppression of appetite
    • Elevated focus

    Halostachine expresses its effects by acting as a beta-adrenergic receptor agonist on fat cells. Stimulating beta receptors aids in burning fat for energy. Needless to say, if 350 milligrams of caffeine sounds tame to you, the addition of halostachine and Eria jarensis, give this pre-workout an extra kick.

Sweat Like a Lady of the Night in Church Thermogenic Blend

  • MitoBurn (L-ꞵ-Aminoisobuytric Acid) – 500mg

    ‘Merica Labz is one of the few companies to use 500 milligrams of MitoBurn in a fully loaded pre-workout! A patent-pending ingredient from NNB Nutrition, MitoBurn is a relatively novel compound, but it has some very promising research behind it.

    MitoBurn

    NNB Nutrition has finally brought us a trusted and tested form of L-BAIBA, which we call an “exercise signal” that kickstarts incredible metabolic processes!

    As of writing this article, it’s the only form of L-ꞵ-aminoisobuytric acid (L-BAIBA) on the market. There are two types of BAIBA: L-BAIBA and D/R-BAIBA. Although they both offer some benefits, research shows that L-BAIBA has the most potential in terms of metabolic enhancement.[11-14]

    Technically, MitoBurn is classified as a myokine, which means that it’s naturally produced by skeletal muscle during exercise and carries out effects through cell signaling. Exercise releases increasing amounts of L-BAIBA, which causes a chain reaction that results in enhanced thermogenesis and fatty acid oxidation.[11-14]

    Although it’s marketed as a weight-loss supplement, MitoBurn’s benefits extend beyond that. It has been shown to:

    • Improve insulin sensitivity
    • Increase glucose tolerance
    • Prevent bone loss
    • Assist white adipose tissue (stored fat) convert to brown (produces heat)[11-14]

    So regardless of your goals (i.e. lose fat or build muscle), MitoBurn can amplify your results.

    Learn more about MitoBurn in our article, titled MitoBurn: β-Aminoisobutyric Acid (L-BAIBA) from NNB Nutrition, and go even deeper on L-BAIBA in another article, BAIBA: New Weight Loss Ingredient Generates Exercise in a Pill?!

  • Green Coffee Extract (50% Chloorgenic) – 500mg

    Green coffee bean extract (GCE) is a rich source of chlorogenic acid (CGA), a polyphenol that expresses several beneficial properties, such as:

    • Anti-inflammatory
    • Antidiabetic
    • Anti-obesity
    • Antioxidant
    • Anti-carcinogenic[15]

    Research shows that CGA helps regulate lipid and glucose metabolism.[15] A systematic review published in the journal Gastroenterology Research and Practice revealed that GCE reduced glucose absorption in the intestine and hepatic triglycerides accumulation. Researchers hypothesized that GCE downregulates fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis while boosting fatty acid oxidation.[15]

    Another study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found that CGAs help free fatty acids from human adipose tissue with or without the presence of caffeine. Based on this finding, GCE may assist in weight loss by increasing fatty acid oxidation and regulating blood glucose levels.[16]

  • Cocoabuterol Cocoa Extract (Theobroma Cacao) (Seed) (Std. Min 50% Cocoa Alkaloids) – 100mg

    Cocoabuterol

    This is one of our favorite patented ingredient thanks to the N-coumaroyldopamine and N-caffeoyldopamine.

    The second trademarked ingredient in Napalm Red, White and Boom is Cocoabuterol from Suzhou Win Health International. Cocoabuterol is a Theobroma cacao seed extract that’s standardized to contain at least 50% cocoa alkaloids. Naturally occurring alkaloids and polyphenols give Cocoabuterol its powerful benefits.

    Cocoabuterol is most commonly used in fat burners because of its ability to:

    • Increase fatty acid metabolism
    • Promote muscle growth
    • Improve mood
    • Suppress appetite[17,18]

    Cocoabuterol is also helpful in pre-workouts because it can increase:

    • Nitric oxide levels
    • Energy levels
    • Muscular endurance & power output[17,18]

    Lastly, the ingredient expresses potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that offer numerous health benefits.[17,18] Overall, Cocoabuterol is a phenomenal addition to this pre-workout since it targets fat loss and performance.

  • Gamma Butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester HCL (ProGBB) – 25mg

    If you’re not a fan of sweating, then steer clear of this ingredient! ProGBB is a trademarked form of gamma butyrobetaine (GBB) ethyl ester HCL. It’s developed by SYNMR Biotechnologies. We like to call ProGBB the “super carnitine that makes you sweat,” since it significantly elevates metabolism.[19]

    Gamma-butyrobetaine is an intermediate that the body uses to create L-carnitine via the gamma-butyrobetaine dioxygenase (BBD) enzyme.[19] Carnitine is essential for fat loss because it’s responsible for transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria to be used for ATP production. Without a sufficient amount of L-carnitine available, fat loss will come to a screeching halt. Studies show that supplementing with GBB is an effective way to increase your body’s L-carnitine stores, which helps facilitate fat loss.[19]
