SMART CAFFEINE™ Nootropic with L-theanine for focused energy

OptimOZ.com.au



SMART CAFFEINE™ Nootropic with L-theanine for focused energy has a rating of 4.5 stars based on 21 reviews.

SMART CAFFEINE™ is a highly effective combination of L-theanine and Caffeine.

L-theanine is a natural amino acid found in green tea that removes the undesirable side effects of Caffeine, creating long-lasting energy and attention without jitters, anxiety, or a crash commonly experience with low quality coffee.

  •  

    The benefits include:

    • Increased focus and alertness

    • Improved cognitive function

    • Enhanced short-term memory retention

    • More ability to ignore distractions

    • No overstimulation

    SMART CAFFEINE™ creates a relaxed yet alert state that is ideal for focusing and thinking clearly.

    Users typically experience effects for 3 - 6 hours. One bottle of SMART CAFFEINE contains 60 capsules.

    Smart Caffeine is also available as part of the Optimal Mental Performance Stack

    It’s your right to know what exactly you’re putting into your body. Most companies use “proprietary blends” so they don’t have to tell you the amount of each ingredient in their formulas. It’s a shady and sometimes dangerous practice. We proudly publish our innovative formulas in an open source format.

  • Being tired or drained is simply not fun, especially if you want your brain working at its highest performance level.

    That's why caffeine is consumed by millions worldwide.  It's an efficient natural stimulant that is well tolerated by many people and tastes great when prepared properly with quality beans. and Caffeine can definitely give you a nice edge on your energy levels. Numerous studies have shown that Caffeine supplements increase energy and concentration. [1]

    But it's not the type of energy and concentration you want for productivity.

    On its own, Caffeine is not a great cognitive enhancer. Users often experience a jittery or anxious mental state followed by a crash, especially in people that have built up a tolerance. Drinking a sugary coffee or energy drink doesn't provide the type of energy and concentration you need to get things done. So if Bulletproof Coffee (long black with MCT Oil and butter)  isn't something for you - then Smart Caffeine gives you an alternative cognitive boosting opportunity.

    SMART CAFFEINE™ contains L-theanine (It's a naturally occurring amino acid with benefits that include mental relaxation, reduced stress, improved working memory, enhanced learning, and perhaps most importantly, increased alpha brain wave activity. [2]

    Independently, Caffeine and L-Theanine have somewhat polar effects on the mind and body. However when the two are combined the effects do not simply negate one another. Instead they work together very synergistically, allowing the user to fully benefit from the positive aspects of both compounds without the negative side effects. The energy and motivation from the Caffeine is harnessed and smoothed over with L-theanine. 

    This Natural Stack provides a clear and focused energy feeling, rather than the short-lived stimulant rush of Caffeine by itself.

    Many scientific studies have shown that SMART CAFFEINE's ingredients, Caffeine and L-theanine, have the following benefits when taken together; increased focus and alertness [3], improved cognitive function [4], enhanced short-term memory retention [5], more ability to ignore distractions [6], no overstimulation [7].

     

    QUICK FACTS:

    • L-theanine and Caffeine is the #1 recommended beginner's Nootropic stack at the excellent r/Nootropics community on reddit.com.
    • L-theanine (y-glutamylethylamide) is found almost exclusively in the tea plant.  Some teas have more than others. The average green tea drinker consumes about 20 mg of L-theanine a day.  That's why people may feel relaxed, calm, and focused after drinking several cups of tea. However you would have to drink many cups of tea to reach most desired nootropic effects of L-theanine.

  • Brain waves are weak electrical impulses emitted by your brain that can be measured on the surface of the head.  The predominant frequency of these electrical impulses correlates with different types of mental states.

    Brain waves are classified into four categories (Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta), each with an associated mental state [Fig. 1].

    Stimulants, like Caffeine, promote Beta waves and suppress the others, leading to increased stress, anxiety, and over excitement.  It can be very difficult to focus and concentrate when you are emitting Beta waves

    Delta waves are only seen in the deepest stages of slumber and Theta waves are seen in light rest and drowsiness.  Alpha waves are present during wakefulness where there is a relaxed and effortless alertness.

    Alpha waves create a calm and productive state of mind.

    L-theanine is a unique amino acid that can easily cross the blood brain barrier and affect the central nervous system. Studies have shown that L-theanine directly stimulates the production of Alpha brain waves.  The graphic below compares the findings when individuals were given either L-theanine of a placebo during a demanding attention task.  The results show significant increases in Alpha waves and activity in the right posterior parietal cortex, a region in the brain important to visual stimulus and attention.

  • "SMART CAFFEINE gives me energy at work all day long"

    "I used to drink at least two coffees, sometimes three just to make it through the day. Now I have completely replaced my coffee dependency with SMART CAFFEINE. It's better, healthier, and there are no jittery side effects." - Alex Gould, Business Development VP 

    "#1 Recommended Beginner's Stack"

    "L-theanine is extremely safe and has been shown to mitigate the negative aspects of caffeine, such as anxiety, increased blood pressure and diminished rest quality, while improving upon the positive aspects."

  • There have been many recent clinical trials conducted by various organizations proving that the combination of L-Theanine and Caffeine increases the ability to focus without the over stimulating effects of Caffeine alone:

    A recent study on young adults discovered that "The combination of L-Theanine and Caffeine improves the cognitive performance and increases subjected alertness" [1]

    The Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory in New York conducted testing for 4 days on volunteers from the age of 21 and 40 and found that "L-Theanine and Caffeine in combination affect human cognition as evidenced by oscillatory alpha-band activity and attention task performance." [2]

    A study on the cognition and mood of healthy volunteers found that "The L-Theanine and Caffeine combination improved both speed and accuracy of performance of the attention-switching task, and reduced susceptibility to distracting information in the memory task. These results replicate previous evidence with suggests that L-Theanine and caffeine in combination are beneficial for improving performance on cognitively demanding tasks." [3]

    In a detailed study, the researchers concluded that "The results support previous evidence that L-theanine and caffeine in combination can improve attention." [4]

    A literature review from the School of Psychology in Australia stated that "L-theanine may interact with caffeine to enhance performance in terms of attention switching and ability to ignore distraction." [5]
