Theobromine:

In modern medicine, theobromine is used as a vasodilator (a blood vessel widener), a diuretic (urination aid), and heart stimulant.

Theobromine increases urine production. Because of this diuretic effect, and its ability to dilate blood vessels, theobromine has been used to treat high blood pressure. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition notes that historic use of theobromine as a treatment for other circulatory problems including arteriosclerosis, certain vascular diseases, angina pectoris, and hypertension should be considered in future studies.
Following its discovery in the late 19th century, theobromine was put to use by 1916, when it was recommended by the publication Principles of Medical Treatment as a treatment for edema (excessive liquid in parts of the body), syphilitic angina attacks, and degenerative angina.
In the human body, theobromine levels are halved between 6–10 hours after consumption.
Possible future uses of theobromine in such fields as cancer prevention have been patented.[25]

Theobromine also shows promise in tooth decay prevention and has been shown in some studies to surpass the more traditional fluoride. Advantages include the ability to safely ingest it, obviating the “do not swallow” warnings on fluoride mouthwash.

**Note** That would explain why I have peed at least 25 times today and counting! I thought it was because I have drank a lot of water and I have been working out, but it is definitely this! 

AMP Citrate: 

Benefits of AMP Citrate

As mentioned earlier, AMP has the same basic structure to DMAA which is why its effects are parallel to DMAA. These include:
An increase in energy (especially when combined with caffeine)

Heightened mental focus

Improved metabolism

Increase in athletic performance

For a crazy stim-free wicked pump preworkout I am going to add this to Hemavol!

This stuff is amazing! Every manufacturer's new catch phrase is muscle splitting pumps and until this product I have never experienced it! And if you are a regular reader, you will know I have tried almost under the sun! This stuff is crazy! Whatever body part I train it gets really tight and feels like it's going to rip my shirt off!

I did biceps and shoulders both were crazy pumped my sleeves felt like they were going to rip!

I did chest and tris and my arms were popping! My tris hit my lats and I couldn't put my arms down!

I did back and my lats hit my triceps and I couldn't put my arms down!

Today is traps and legs and I'm afraid to see what will happen!

What will happen? Stay tuned!

My traps are sooo sore! I don’t know the last time my traps were this sore!!

Go buy this stuff! Buy Hemoval and mix them for the ultimate stim free preworkout!

**Update** July 28th 2014
The more I use this stuff the more I fall in love with it!

**Update** September 29th 2014
I love the pump Noxygen gives I have never felt a pump so tight ever!! Whatever I worked was pumped and tight as hell!! My biceps I could t scratch my nose! My triceps I couldn’t straighten my arms! My back I can’t put my arms down! It was the sickest pump ever! However; I was injured by NOxygen!

**Warning** do not do cardio while on NOxygen! In the middle of cardio my legs, tendons and ligaments all tightened like the above mentioned muscles and I popped something in my knee it was loud and I was in bed for a week! I could barely walk for a week and luckily the damage wasn’t serious and permanent! After icing it 3 times daily for a week I was ok! Thank God for that! I thought I snapped my ACL as I felt it along the side of my knee.

Final evaluation: I will no longer be using NOxygen! I am trying to cut and my knees are much to important to me! I can’t have my calves and side of my knee extremely tight and ready to pop!

If you don’t do Cardio then buy this stuff for sure! If you do cardio then stay away!!

This stuff is pretty good! It gives me a nice pump and a little bit of energy to get me going. I am not a fan of caffeinated preworkouts, but it’s not that bad. If purchased at a discount I would pick this up!
