- For Fast, Smooth, Clear-Headed Energy*
- A Dietary Supplement Drink Mix
Blast is an energy-boosting Designer Food dietary supplement designed by Life Extension scientists Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw for their own use. Start your day with tasty, natural lemon-tea-flavored Blast for fast and long-lasting energy.* Blast fires up your brain naturally and jump-starts your day. It contains important ingredients for making, activating and using noradrenaline, an important neurotransmitter.*
- L-phenylalanine (an essential amino acid) and its cofactors and other nutrients your brain needs to produce noradrenaline, and*
- Caffeine, which helps to release noradrenaline and increase sensitivity to its effects.
Blast also works to help provide appetite satisfaction.* It contains only 30 calories per serving, less than 1/2 glass of skim milk.
*Normal and natural, noradrenaline is needed by some of your nerve cells to transmit information to one another.
For adults only. Place one tablespoon of mix in 4 to 8 ounces of cold water or fruit juice. Stir briskly and drink. Serve over ice for best flavor. Consume as desired 1 to 4 times per day. For best results drink immediately after awakening, on an empty stomach or about one hour before a meal or usual snack time. Please read Caution statement below.
Silicon dioxide, natural flavors.
Caution: Do not consume more than 2.6 grams of supplemental phenylalanine per day.
Not for use by children or by pregnant or lactating women, persons with the genetic metabolic disorder PKU, psychosis, persons taking prescription MAO (monoamine oxidase) inhibitor drugs, pigmented malignant melanoma cancer patients, those with Wilson's disease, or those who have a violent temper. Not for use by anyone sensitive to any of the ingredients. Excessive consumption of L-phenylalanine or caffeine may cause insomnia, especially when taken in the late afternoon or evening. If insomnia occurs, reducing the amount consumed by 1 /2 will usually correct the problem. If insomnia is a problem, we suggest drinking Blast only once per day for the first week, right after you arise in the morning. During the second week and thereafter, drink it twice per day, upon arising and an hour before lunch.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I watch all my co-workers complain of lack of energy and foggy-headedness, while I quietly think how great I feel. This product is truly amazing. I was taking the capsule version for convenience, but switched to this powder because the caps aren't vcaps. Anyway, as a bonus, the powder works better and faster. I simply mix it with water immediately upon drinking, and *as soon as it touches my tongue* I immediately begin to feel the difference. The morning grog lifts, energy springs forth to my body and mind... it's simply fantastic. No jitters, no crash. Just clean, smooth, long lasting energy. Nothing gets me through a workday better than this stuff. It is worth every penny. The taste isn't too great, but it both tastes and works better than alternatives (Red Bull, 5-hour energy, etc) and it clearly lists in ingredients. Anyway, check this out if you haven't.
More Potent than coffee. Includes synergists, cofactors along with adrenaline and noradrenaline precursor phenylalanine.
