what is beyond energy?

Dopamine is produced in the brain from a chemical precursor called L-dopa. L-dopa is an amino acid that helps feed your brain important triggers like desire, encouragement, and reason. By the time you read this sentence, you will have used plenty of L-dopa, and that’s a good thing! See, your dopamine is working … you’re feeling pleasure and motivation right now.

L-dopa is produced naturally in every human being but is not usually introduced to us through diet. Tyrosine, another chemical precursor and more common in the foods we eat, makes L-dopa in the body. The genius engineers of Beyond Energy found the one place in the world where these chemical precursors occur naturally…the amazing ancient Indian herb mucuna pruriens.

Beyond Energy will feed your brain enhancements like energy and creativity. It’s the world’s first drink to boost dopamine levels!


New Mexico has has a long and unique history of energy and brilliance!

  • NM has been has been a geologic powerhouse, shaping North America.
  • NM is where the power of the atom was first unleashed.
  • NM is where the "operating system" and Microsoft were born.
  • And NM is home to the worlds's first "Spaceport". Where consumers will fly above the atmosphere! 

And, in continuation of that creative energy, New Mexico is also the home base for the "Giant Leap" in the energy market....as we drive toward Performance!

The Man Behind the Can

Dr. Andrew Hemmen, board certified in Internal Medicine, is a vibrant physician living in the southwest U.S. He is an advocate of self-improvement and better living. In recent years, Dr. Hemmen has become particularly interested in our neurochemistry associated with motivation and success. Although many factors go into the makeup of a successful individual, the key chemical is dopamine. 

Our motivation and reward system is dependent on this key neurotransmitter as it causes our behavior to become goal-oriented. 


Our ability to think abstractly as well as our clarity of distant space and time is enhanced by dopamine. Simply put, with dopamine our goals are perceived closer and our rewards sweeter. 

In 2011, Dr. Hemmen began to consider natural ways to support and enhance our motivation and reward system based on natural herbs and amino acids. He then began to develop this beverage to take us “beyond energy,” and the concept of Beyond Energy was born.
