Ingredients per Serving

& Scientific evidence

alcar

Acetyl-L-Carnitine

500 Mg

Known for its stimulating effect and the transferral of energy to your brain cells.

Gives your brain more energy [Reference 1]
Stimulates the absorption of Acetylcholine, a compound involved in the concentration process [Reference 2]

cafëine

Caffeine

100 Mg (± 1 cup of coffee)

The most widely used psychoactive substance in the world.

Promotes alertness [3]
Improves different elements of the cognitive performance in healthy young adults. [4,5,6,7]

l-theanine

L-theanine

200 Mg

An amino acid found in tea, amongst other things. It promotes relaxation and stimulates ‘alpha’ brain waves.

Reduces stress and anxiety [8]

cafëine-en-l-theanine

Caffeine + L-theanine synergy

This combination exhibits strong synergies for improving mental performance when taken in a 1: 2 ratio.

Improves performance in tests for word recognition, fast visual information processing, attention and mood [9,10,11]
Reduces the elevated blood pressure caused by caffeine when used alone [12,13,14]

rhodiola-rosea

Rhodiola Rosea

300 Mg

A plant extract that has been used for thousands of years in China and Scandinavia.

Reduces stress  [15]
Can counter the mental deterioration caused by stress and fatigue [15,16]

vitamines-b5,-b6,-b11,-b12

Vitamines B6, B11 & B12

20 / 0,1 / 1 Mg

Building blocks for healthy brain function. These building blocks act as essential co-factors in the production of dopamine and the conversion of energy in the brain.

B12: A deficit correlates with a higher risk of depression and mood instability [17]
B6: Can strengthen the short and long-term memory and improves the ability to process verbal stimuli [18,19,20]
