Who Knew? What is Octopamine and how do you get it?

The Secret to Motivation eludes me – that’s obvious from all the research on motivation we’ve posted!  I probably have a bit of attention deficit since I tend to swing wildly from interest to interest.  Put that together with my reverence for octopuses I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. (jw)

People take it octopamine to keep focus and energy (like Ritalin, but weaker). It enhances motivation, alertness and focus, and stimulates fat loss while keeping muscle. It stimulates dopamine and norepinephrine and this may account for its effects. (This is how caffeine works). 

An Italian scientist, Vittorrio Erspamer found octopamine in the salivary glands of the octopus, hence its name.

Octopamine is related to the neurotransmitter norepinephrine. It comes from the amino acid Tyramine, which can be found in a wide array of foods such as liver and tomatoes. You can get it in supplements. Isolated, it is a stimulant and also burns fat.

However it may be that Octopamine prevents the breakdown of protein for energy, rather promoting fat burning for energy.

Octopamine has been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) because of its stimulatory properties.  If you are sensitive to stimulants, or have high blood pressure, or a heart condition, don’t use Octopamine.
