With all of the big controversy over DMAA (1,3 dimethylamylamine or geranium oil) everyone is wonder what is the next big thing? In many cases, most would agree that DMAA hit home on most products shortly after the Ephedrine band was set in place when it had been placed in the most well known pre-workout formula on the market, USPlabs Jack3d.
Driven Sports had made a name for itself as the infamious Jack3d became a target of the FDA. So what was so great about Driven Sports “CRAZE” that wasn’t DMAA? The answer is simple, Dendrobium.
What is Dendrobium?
Dendrobium (Pronounced: den-DROH-bee-um) is a member of the orchid plant family and is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it has the name Shihu. The plant is native to southern Asia, and Dendrobium nobile is by far the most widely used species because of its well-known medicinal properties. Dendrobium has been used in China for over 1000 years as a tonic and strengthening medicine. It contains a variety of chemical alkaloids that are thought to be responsible for its beneficial effects.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Dendrobium is used to promote the health of the stomach, kidneys and lungs. In addition to its use as a medicine, it is also used as a powerful strengthening tonic!
