Finaflex Stimul8 is a comprehensive pre-workout, carefully designed for hard-working, ambitious athletes. The supplement guarantees powerful stimulation and a large dose of motivation for even the toughest workouts. What distinguishes the product from other preparations available on the market is the content of extremely effective synergistic substances.
This product provides up to 40 servings, containing the unique Endurance + Ripping Matrix blend, which provides strong plant and synthetic stimulants with proven effects. All this is in the form of a well-soluble powder with a unique taste. This preparation provides energy, accelerates the heart rate, stimulates the body and mind, thus improving the efficiency of the whole body.
The supplement contains, among others:
Beta-alanine is a compound belonging to non-protein amino acids that is formed in the liver as a result of the degradation of uracil. Unlike alpha-alanine, it is not part of proteins but performs many other important functions. It participates in the synthesis of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), which determines the proper metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
Beta-alanine is also necessary for the synthesis of anserine (antioxidant) and carnosine. Carnosine found in the muscles prevents pH lowering by the lactic acid produced during intense exercise. Besides, it protects muscles against the adverse effects of free radicals, improves their contractility and accelerates the removal of harmful metabolites.
Caffeine is an alkaloid belonging to methylxanthines that can be found e.g. in coffee or tea. It is known for its stimulating effect – it reduces fatigue, thereby stimulating for action.
Its impact on the locomotor system is also significant. By increasing the inflow of oxygenated blood to muscle tissue, it improves training performance in athletes. This also considerably increases their concentration on the activity being practiced, and therefore improves coordination.
It has also been observed that the use of caffeine may contribute to the reduction of body fat. This results from the increased intensity of lipolysis processes in adipocytes and the systemic acceleration of the metabolic rate.
Green tea leaf extract is a natural Camellia sinensis leaf extract, standardized to a minimum of 60% epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
EGCG is an ester of gallic acid and epigallocatechin. It belongs to the group of polyphenols with strong antioxidant activity. Recent scientific studies show numerous health-promoting effects of epigallocatechin gallate contained in green tea. It may e.g. lower blood cholesterol, prevent the formation of atherosclerotic plaque or stabilize glucose levels.
EGCG combined with caffeine also shows properties that increase thermogenesis. Increased body temperature results in the acceleration of metabolic changes and more energy to be provided, e.g. to the muscles.
Cocoa bean extract is an excellent source of microelements as well as theobromine and caffeine. They show a stimulating effect, but also support regeneration. Cocoa bean extract is also rich in antioxidants, which, along with epicatechins, have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.
L-phenylalanine is a protein amino acid transformed in the body into tyrosine, which is a precursor in the catecholamine synthesis pathway. Catecholamines have a stimulatory effect on the body – they intensify the breakdown of liver glycogen, leading to increased blood glucose, which is a valuable source of energy for working muscles. This along with even a small dose of adrenaline may cause bronchodilation, making breathing easier, which, when combined with increased blood pressure, improves the efficiency of oxygen and glucose transport to the muscles.
Guayusa extract is an extract from the leaves of holly growing naturally in South America. These leaves are often used to prepare the Yerba Mate drink, which is nowadays becoming more and more popular. Guayusa is a rich source of numerous stimulants such as theanine, theobromine, and caffeine. They cause increased physical and mental mobilization of the body, thus making the body prepared for a great effort. Apart from stimulation, the substances contained in this extract reduce the feeling of anxiety, stress and improve well-being.
Theacrine is an alkaloid synthesized from caffeine that has a similar chemical structure. The action of theacrine is based on blocking receptors for adenosine, which results in a reduction of fatigue. What's more, theacrine may also act on dopaminergic receptors, thereby increasing concentration, motivation and providing more energy to action.
Rauwolfia vomitoria extract is an extract from the root bark of an African plant containing large amounts of yohimbine. Yohimbine is an extremely potent stimulant that intensifies lipolysis by acting on adrenergic receptors in adipocytes. Therefore, it promotes the loss of unnecessary fat, providing additional energy for the work of muscle fibers.
Calcium is an element that is the main component of bone tissue. It is necessary for proper muscle contraction and nerve conduction. It also participates in the proces of blood clotting or the regulation of hormone secretion.
Potassium (as tripotassium citrate monohydrate) is the main intracellular cation. It plays a key role in maintaining the potential of cell membranes, as well as in inducing impulses in nerve cells. Potassium also conditions the proper functioning of some enzymes, stabilizes blood pressure and is necessary to maintain electrolyte balance.
To sum up, Finaflex Stimul8 is a top-class pre-workout supplement that offers strong stimulation and a large dose of motivation for heavy training. Supplementation with the product increases workout performance as it exerts a stimulatory effect, thereby preparing the body for intense effort. Finaflex Stimul8 fits perfectly into the "pre-workout menu" of people who value maximum efficiency and satisfaction from overcoming their limits.
To avoid the formation of lumps, use a shaker to mix the powder with water. More advanced athletes may increase the dose to get a stronger energy boost. Nevertheless, it is not recommended to use the preparation before bedtime, as it may cause problems with falling asleep.

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery. In the sports supplementation, caffeine is used as a stimulant nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. Polyphenols, both occurring in coffee beans, such as cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. It is included in many dietary stimulants (creatine stacks, no-boosters, beverages). It is a component of fat burners. It is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements.
Dosage: 100-600 mg per day. Due to the long release of activity should not be used in the evening, before sleep.
EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) - a compound occurring naturally in the leaves of green tea and sage nutmeg. Powerful antioxidant resulting in removing free radicals out of your body. It has the thermogenic potential (enhanced when combined with other substances including caffeine, capsaicin, etc.), allowing a faster fat reduction. Affects preventively in the side effects of the glandular hypertrophy (prostate) and male pattern baldness. Recommended for those who are active physically and professionally, for the maintenance of body composition and body aesthetics. It is a component of fat burners, allowing for faster slimming.
Dosage: 50-500 mg per day.
Cocoa seeds come from the cocoa fruit (Theobroma cacao). It is widely used in the food industry – primarily for the production of cocoa powder and cocoa butter, which is used to produce e.g., chocolate. Raw, untreated, cocoa beans are a treasury of valuable nutrients, which is why they were included in the group of the so-called superfoods.
About 50% of the dry mass of cocoa seeds are fats – mainly saturated fatty acids (stearic and palmitic) as well as oleic acid and other acids from the EUFAs. 31% is carbohydrates, with up to 15% being non-digestible fiber.
Cocoa seeds also contain minerals (magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper), amino acids (arginine, glutamine, leucine) and two alkaloids (theobromine, caffeine), showing a stimulating effect. In addition, they are extremely rich in polyphenols (catechins, anthocyanins, procyanidins) that have a beneficial effect on the human body. They are credited for the ability to regulate blood pressure, lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar.
Cocoa seed extracts are a popular ingredient in health-promoting preparations. They are also commonly used in slimming supplements, sometimes they are also added to pre-workout formulas and mild stimulants.
Theobromine (3,7-Dimethylxanthine) is a purine alkaloid, poorly soluble in water, present in cocoa beans, as well as the leaves of yerba mate, tea, coffee, cola and peanuts. It is a diuretic, lowers blood pressure and improves brain function (dilates the blood vessels of the brain). Also expands the blood vessels throughout the circulatory system, preventing atherosclerotic changes. Sometimes it is used in slimming diet. Combined with caffeine and polyphenols becomes thermogenic. In the sports supplementation formulations containing theobromine are used diuretics and fat burners. It is a component of thermogenics, pre-workout creatine stacks, as well as nitrogen boosters.
Phenylalanine (essential amino acid) is provided from the outside with food or synthetic products. Its source are the high-protein foods and supplements, concentrates: protein, amino acid and nutritional supplements for athletes. Precursor of tyrosine, thyroid hormones and neurotransmitters (adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine), phenylethylamines (neuromodulator) and melanin pigments of hair and skin. Essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. It has analgesic, antidepressant, and is used as an additive to supplements with thermogenic and stimulating action. It is a component of aspartame.
Excess phenylalanine consumed by people with neurological problems, may reduce the availability of other essential amino acid tryptophan of nervous system and consequently lead to a reduction in serotonin and exacerbate the depression.
Theacrine is a purine alkaloid which occurs naturally in the fruits of cupuaçu (Theobroma grandiflorum) and the leaves of Camellia assamica. It is structurally similar to caffeine but it has also additional ketone and methyl groups. It also energises, enhances focus and reduces drowsiness and fatigue. In contrary to caffeine, it has more lasting effects and rather does not affect blood pressure. Furthermore, it has been observed that the body develops tolerance to theacrine more slowly and that is why there is no need to increase its dosage to obtain the desired results.
Like caffeine, theacrine can bind to adenosine receptors without activating them. Nonetheless, its effects depend on the dosage. Its high doses block adenosine receptors whereas low doses have the opposite effects – they boost adenosine levels in the hippocampus and that is probably why they may reduce negative effects of excessive caffeine intake. In addition, theacrine modulates dopamine receptors. Their activation leads to higher motivation and enhanced cognitive skills. It is also believed to have analgesic and antioxidant effects.
In supplementation, theacrine is treated as a stimulant. It is used to reduce drowsiness and fatigue and boost mental performance. It is often combined with caffeine to enhance and prolong its effects and prevent the harmful consequences of excess caffeine.
Theacrine is most frequently found in pre-workout supplements and fat burners based on stimulants. Single-ingredient preparations with pure theacrine are also available on the market.
Dosage: No official guidelines.
The most common daily dosage is from 50 to 300 mg. Doses below 50 mg will have a relaxing effect and those around 300 mg a stimulating effect.
