OxyMax: Performax Labs MAX Strength Fat Burner Next for Upgrades

October 19, 2021 Update: As part of the ongoing Performax Labs brand upgrades, they’ve announced that OxyMax will be next to get the upgrade, and the label is now out. Stay tuned to this page and @PerformaxLabs and @PricePlow on Instagram for the launch date!

Performax Labs OxyMax Update 2021

It’s coming… and given the other formula upgrades, at this point, we’re so confident in the brand that we’re not telling everyone to stock up on the legendary previous formula. The new ones are that good.

The new 2021 OxyMax Ingredients

A full analysis is coming, but needless to say, OxyMax fans won’t be disappointed. Here’s what’s in each capsule:

  • NeuroPEA (Eria Jarensis (whole plant) Extract) – 200mg

  • Caffeine Anhydrous – 200mg

  • ThinFen (Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl) – 100mg

  • Infinergy (Dicaffeine Malate) – 75mg (yielding roughly 55mg caffeine)

  • Cocoabuterol (Cocoa Extract (Theobromoa cacao L.)(seed)(std. min 50% cocoa alkaloids)) – 50mg

  • Paradoxine (Grains of Paradise (Aframomum Melegueta)(seeds) Extract (std. min 12.5% 6-Paradol)) – 40mg

  • Citrus Aurantium (fruit) Extract – 25mg

  • ProGBB (Gamma-butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester HCl) – 20mg

  • Fucoxanthin (from Brown Seaweed Extract) – 8mg

  • BioPerine (Black Pepper (fruit) Extract std. to 95% Piperine) – 5mg

  • Rauwolfia Vomitoria Extract (std. to min 90% Rauwolscine) – 2mg

This means you get about 255 milligrams of total caffeine per capsule – and that’s obviously not the only stimulant, so one capsule at a time will be the suggestion.’

Note: This was a best-seller, so if you’re a big fan of the most recent formula and want to stock up just in case, see below. However, Performax Labs has not been downgrading or weakening their formulas, so we don’t think you have much to fear for the new one.

Performax Labs OxyMax

Performax Labs rolls out a brand new, fully-disclosed version of their powerful appetite-suppressing, mood-enhancing fat burner OxyMax.

Performax Labs has unveiled their latest edition of their popular fat-burner, OxyMax, with a brand new ingredient panel featuring a full-dosed and transparently-labeled list of fantastic ingredients to help you get the most out of your diet.

Much like the previous version of OxyMax XT, OxyMax is packing a LOT of feel good ingredients led by N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine and Beta-PEA. We’ve seen this duo before in the brand’s high-energy and pumps pre workout HyperMax and thoroughly enjoyed the feeling on it, which we expect more of the same here!

OxyMax Ingredients

OxyMax uses a synergistic combination of potent lipolytic agents to help you attack fat and leave you in a state of total euphoria. Looking at the label, it looks like a powerful formula, separating itself from the rest of the overly crowded fat burner market with those mood boosters!

  • Caffeine Anhydrous (250mg)

    Performax Labs OxyMax Ingredients

    OxyMax now touts a transparent label and boy is this thing loaded!

    The staple ingredient in every fat-burner, caffeine is the first ingredient in OxyMax. Rightfully so, as caffeine has been shown countless times to be beneficial for focus, mood, energy and fat loss.[1-4] But, this is just the beginning of this energy and mood-enhancing fat loss supplement.

    There’s a lot more interesting stuff ahead!

  • N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine (150mg)

    This is the key ingredient to OxyMax. Studies are few and far between on this PEA (phenylethylamine) metabolite, but you can check out our write-up titled Eria Jarensis Extract / N-phenethyl dimethylamine: The Next Big Thing? — for a detailed rundown on how this unique ingredient functions.

    Basically, this functions in the same way PEA does, but crosses the blood-brain barrier easier to it being more lipophilic. This should translate into a longer-lasting effect of the typical “euphoric” sensation that is attributed to the catecholamine release caused by PEA.[5]

    This has been the ingredient that Performax Labs has stood behind, while other companies bounce from stim to stim, they’ve instead decided to take the PEAs to the MAX:

  • Beta-Phenylethylamine (125mg)

    As mentioned above, PEA causes a potent, but brief release of catecholamines (dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline), which lead to that “feel good” mood.

    Not much research has been done on PEA in regards to weight loss. However, due to its ability to release noradrenaline it may indirectly stimulate lipolysis due to the fact that noradrenaline is a potent inducer of lipolysis.[6,7]

    It’s our belief that sometimes, the PEA is actually best for the quick, motivational mood boost that you want. You feel it fast, and it’s a perfect uplifting jolt to get you out of the house and into the gym to put in the work you need to do. But the other ingredients are what last longer (or help it last longer, such as the next one):

  • Hordenine HCl (50mg)

    Performax Labs Rebrand

    Here’s a shot of the fully revamped line of Performax Labs products!

    Hordenine is a plant extract found alongside synephrine in bitter orange that acts as a natural stimulant. Research is on the light side, but may indicate that hordenine exhibits similar effects as that of noradrenaline.[8]

    Additionally, Hordenine acts as an MAO (Monoamine Oxidase) inhibitor.[9] This has the added bonus effect of helping keep PEA “active” longer in the body, helping to further that “feel good” sensation we described earlier.

  • Paradoxine (40mg)

    Get ready to feel the heat with this grains of paradise extract!

    Paradoxine is a is a premium-grade, patented Grains of Paradise extract that elicits a strong thermogenic effect in the body, increasing energy expenditure and fat mobilization from brown adipose tissue (BAT), thereby accelerating fat loss.[10]

    40mg is the full clinical dose, which means you should expect to feel a significant warming sensation and some extra sweating too!

  • Higenamine HCl (25mg)

    Higenamine is an extract that exhibits similar fat oxidation effects to ephedrine although not nearly as potent.[11] It’s a beta-2 agonist, meaning it makes the body release noradrenaline which then causes fat to be released and used for energy.

  • Coleus Forskohlii (25mg)

    Forskolin Weight Loss

    Forskolin causes a chain reaction of events that ultimately lead to fat loss. This is the process of free fatty acid liberation. Then it’s up to you burn it with exercise!

    Coleus Forskohlii (Forskolin) is an herb that was traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine. Forskolin increases cAMP levels in the body thereby affecting improving fat metabolism as we mentioned above.[12]

    Additionally elevated levels of cAMP create a similar effect as exercise does in relation to the the activity of certain mitochondrial enzymes in the body.[13] This can result in increased muscle protein synthesis, which is incredibly beneficial, especially when cutting.

    Cheaper forskolin extracts are notorious for their stomach-twisting, diarrhea-spewing side effects, which is why Performax has included the highest quality extract standardized for 95% Forskolin.

  • Fucoxanthin (8mg)

    A new addition to OxyMax, Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid found in brown seaweed that’s found not frequently enough in fat burners. The alkaloid enhances carbohydrate metabolism and GLUT4 expression in skeletal muscle[14,15], which takes the carbs you’re eating and stores them in your muscles as opposed to your gut or thighs.

    On top of that, fucoxanthin also functions as a beta-3 adrenergic agonist in white adipose (fat) tissue[16], where it “activates” white fat by increasing activity of Uncoupling Protein 1 (UCP1). The end result of this is an increased metabolic rate, which accelerates your fat loss.[17]

  • Black Pepper Extract (5mg)

    Also known as Piper nigrum, Black Pepper extract, when combined with other supplements, Several studies have found that black pepper extract, when combined with other supplements, increases the absorption and efficacy of the other ingredients. Having this valuable extract included as part of OxyMax ensures you’ll reap all the fat-burning benefits it has to offer.

  • Rauwolfia Vomitoria (2mg)

    Performax Labs OxyMax Trio

    OxyMax is back, revamped, and better than ever as Performax Labs contintues to crush it during their rebrand.

    Rauwolscine, also known as alpha-yohimbine, is extracted from Rauwolfia Vomitoria. Performax has included a 90% rauwolscine extract, which means there roughly 1.8mg of the high potent stim in each capsule of OxyMax.

    Rauwolscine is chemically similar to yohimbine and functions in much the same way. It is an alpha-2 adrenergic agonist and can help accelerate fat loss.[18] Alpha-Y doesn’t directly burn fat, but rather inhibits the receptors in the body that prevent fat loss. By blocking these receptors, Rauwolscine enhances the fat-burning potential of the other ingredients included in OxyMax

Overall, this seems about as aggressive as you’re going to get without having any FDA-“warned” stimulants, which Performax Labs has wisely shelved. You get a combination of these effects:

  • The “feel” that everyone wants from the PEA compounds, and the hordenine to keep it around longer
  • Hit Beta-2 fat burning angle from higenamine
  • The Alpha-2 fat blocking angle from rauwolscine
  • Thermogenesis / heat and other fat burning mechanisms from Paradoxine
  • The standard energy from caffeine
  • …all potentially amplified by black pepper extract

This is a formula with a diverse array of effects that we can expect to be around a lot longer, with the “feel” that so many people want, yet without the stimulants that will get one into trouble with the authorities.


Performax Sarah Allen

Don’t settle for average weight loss. Use OxyMax for long-lasting energy and appetite suppression for MAXimum results!

Take 1 cap on an empty stomach upon waking up. After assessing tolerance, an additional capsule can be taken 6-8 hours later. Sensitive users should consume with food. Do not exceed 3 capsules per day.

Wrap Up

As you can see, OxyMax uses a LOT of ingredients, all disclosed incredibly well, which should make for an extremely effective fat burner that also makes you feel like a million bucks, even in the midst of poverty macros.

Performax Labs is 3 for 3 on the revamped formulas during their October-stravaganza rebranding effort. What’s the last product to be updated, and will Performax continue their winning streak?

Only time will tell… but these ingredients are a knockout!
