Eria Jarenis is an Orchid species local to South East Asia. The two active ingredients in Eria Jarensis are N-methyl-phenethylamine (N-methyl-PEA) and N,N-dimethyl-phenethylamine (N,N-dimethyl-PEA). While PEA is well known for its ability to significantly elevate mood, the effects last for a very short time (less than 10 minutes usually). Eria Jarensis impact lasts much longer – in the hours range, which makes it a super potent energizer and mood enhancer. Eria Jarensis Extract is reported to give a euphoric sensation and enhancing concentration levels, alertness and focus. In addition, Eria Jarensis Extract can help with appetite suppression, acting as a bronchodilator and reducing feelings of anxiety. Well, a perfect fit for pre-workouts and fat burners.
Eria Jarensis started to appear in pre-workouts in late 2016 is now gaining, even more, popularity during 2017 and onwards. There are two main reasons for that:
DMAA and AMP Citrate got banned by the FDA (though you can still buy products using DMAA). DMHA just got banned in Australia, and rumor has it the FDA is after it also. So Eria Jarenisis has the full stage to itself…
It works perfectly and enhances the impact of other stims like caffeine, DMHA, J-Regia and others. So, you will usually find it combined with one of the above.
Though there is no well-researched recommended dosage, you will usually find between 125mg to 250mg of this ingredient in leading products. As mentioned before, you will see Eria Jarensis combined with other stimulants for a synergistic effect.
An extremely balanced pre workout, DVST8 of the Union is a cool, clean experience that still hits hard. With 3 great flavors, you can’t go wrong with this one. The focus is top notch, and relative to the other 2 pre workouts on top of this list, does not have an extreme dosage in the stimulants like Eria Jarensis.
I usually take 2 scoops of DVST8 of the Union for the best experience. I would categorize it as an everyday stim junkie pre workouts for most people, but this definitely is not to be messed with.

God Status Labz Zeus Pre Workout is extremely similar to the infamous Dark Energy Pre Workout both on label and in effects. This is the first pre workout on the list where the Eria Jarensis acts as happy mood elevator. You just feel better during your workout.
Like every other pre workout here, Zeus is a strong pre workout. But the difference is in its other aspects. Zeus is great for skin-tearing pumps and focus. I would take Zeus if you wanted the best clean hardcore experiences.
*Closest thing to Zeus right now is God of Rage Pre Workout*
Dark Labs has been one of the best new companies to come out in 2020 with the introduction of Crack, Herolean, and now Flame Pre Workout. Flame has what is probably the most loaded ingredient label I have ever seen in a pre workout. Not only in terms of ingredients, but also the dosages.
The energy with Flame is unmatched. If you want to feel hours on hours of energy, this is your pre workout. Plus the insane amount of Eria Jarensis gives it this “buzzing” effect that translates into pure motivation. Almost like an extreme energy drink. There is no way you won’t like Flame as it hits on all aspects of energy, focus, and mood elevation.
*Closest thing to Flame right now is God of Rage Pre Workout*
Assassin Pre Workout from Apollon Nutrition is hands down the strongest pre workout on the market. The only reason it is not number 1 is because it is not as well-rounded as Flame. Assassin is just a super hard-hitter that has you going crazy in the gym. And my collaboration with Apollon is undoubtedly the strongest version of Assassin to date.
Even at 3/4 scoops of this pre workout, you will feel relentless energy come into full effect immediately. That energy later paired up with laser focus and crazy Beta Alanine tingles is unmatched in the Stim Junkie Pre workout category.
If you are looking for an Eria Jarensis pre workout that will have you climbing up walls, Assassin is the clear choice.
*Closest thing to Assassin right now is God of Rage Pre Workout*
Alpha Lion Superhuman Supreme is another super will-balanced pre workout with great flavors (assuming you care about flavors). Superhuman Supreme Pre Workout is going to have you flying to the moon. I personally take 2 scoops for the best experience full of swole pumps, tingling, and locked in focus.
This is on the lower end of the intensity scale, so if you are looking for a strong pre workout that won’t kill you, Superhuman Supreme is the best option on the market.
Launched in late 2016, Redcon1 introduced Total War (what an awesome name) as its first product. Beyond the marketing envelope, Total War by Redcon1 is a great product with a label to prove it. Bringing in 6g of Citrulline Malate, 3.2g of Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine, and an advanced energy & focus blend with 250mg of caffeine, DMHA & Eria Jarenesis. With this combination on its side, Total War promises & delivers an excellent pump and some serious cognitive benefits. Total War delivers a smooth, constant flow of energy that lasts through your workout and beyond.
The newest comer on this list RE1GN by Olympus Labs is one of the hottest pre-workouts on the market. With a mix of Eria Jarensis, J-Regia, Caffeine, Stim-x, Teacrine to name a few, you can easily see why. The guys at Olympus Labs, are not playing games here. RE1GN is bringing in some super innovative ingredients to the table which should get you totally zoned at killing your workout. With literally ‘insane pumps’ and ‘laser focus, tunnel vision’ RE1GN is one of the best pre-workouts your money can buy right now.
With 250mg of Eria Jarenesis, 200mg of DMHA and 200mg of Caffeine, Sparta Nutrition Kraken Pre-Workout is joining a very respectable group that is becoming increasingly competitive. It easily wins the ‘overdosed’ pre-workout award :). It is so fully loaded that you can easily go with 1/2 a serving (1 scoop) and get a killer workout, which in that case also puts it in a good place pricing wise. The bottom line is – If you train insane, add Kraken to your list of to go Pre-Workouts.
Coming from CT Fletcher, one of the biggest fitness figure in the world today, Sidewalk kraka surprised everyone by bringing in one of the best formulas the industry has seen. Fully dosed and some may say overdosed in literally any category that matters. Each serving of brings in 300mg caffeine, 200mg Eria Jarensis, and 125mg DMHA. And more. Sidewalk KRAKA delivers and it is one of our top go-to pre-workout when looking for high energy and mood.
HyperMax XT is a monster. Though it’s the only one on this list to bring in only caffeine on top of Eria Jarensis in the stim department, it is one of the most effective ones we tried. The mood enhancement is superb and on par with RE1GN (which says a lot!). Sometimes the label doesn’t tell the whole story and in this case, the 325mg of caffeine and the 200mg of Eria Jarenesis combined with the other ingredients simply work!
