150 mg of caffeine in one pill.

How many cups of coffee do you need to wake up in the morning ?

Do you live on energy drinks and shots?

Studies show they are both bad for you in fluid form. Coffee stains your teeth and is not good for you stomach. Energy drinks have tons of other stimulants and sugars.

I decided to try this product out for at least 30 days to see if I could get rid of the coffee and energy drinks daily that I was taking. I’ve tried vitamins and B complex but that doesn’t provide me with the energy I feel I need all day into the evening and sometimes night. So this is where the Red Pill comes into play.

ENERGY+ has 2 ingredients that are active in it, one being l-Theanine 200mg  and the other is Caffeine Anhydrous 150 mg.

According to this article

Caffeine is a central nervous stimulant. According to the McKinley Health Center at the University of Illinois, caffeine is habit-forming, rather than addictive, and if a person who regularly drinks or eats caffeine stops suddenly, symptoms such as headache or fatigue can result. Some people are more sensitive to caffeine, and even relatively small doses can affect them. The International Society of Sports Nutrition states that anhydrous caffeine is more effective in enhancing performance than coffee in trained athletes who use low to moderate doses. It is beneficial for extended, exhaustive exercise and time-trial performance, and for high intensity exercise such as soccer or rugby, but not for strength-power performance such as weight lifting.

ANHYDROUS CAFFEINE

Anhydrous caffeine is simply dehydrated caffeine – anhydrous means “without water.” It is available in pill or tablet form, or as a soluble powder. Anhydrous caffeine is found in a number of non-prescription medications such as Vivarin and No-Doze. According to Drugs.com, these medications contain 200 mg of anhydrous caffeine per tablet. A cup of coffee may contain 40 mg to 180 mg, depending on how it is brewed. Tea varies from 20 mg to 90 mg per 8 oz. cup. Cola and other soft drinks contain 36 mg to 90 mg in 12 oz., and bittersweet chocolate has 25 mg of caffeine per ounce.

So i figured it is safer for me than the drink and this other article

What is L-Theanine?

Theanine is derived from tea leaves. Tea is native to eastern Asia and is a member of the Theaceae family. This evergreen shrub or tree grows to over 9 m in height and is pruned from 60 cm to 1.5 m for cultivation. Its dark green, serrated-edged leaves are alternate and oval, while its white and fragrant blossoms appear singly or in clusters.

The chemical has also been isolated from the edible mushroom Boletus badius. The mushroom is commonly found in late summer and autumn in the United States, and is reddish brown to dark brick/brown in color with a 4 to 12 cm tall stem. The flesh is white to yellow in color, and becomes a light blue/green color when cut or bruised.

What is it used for?

Traditional/Ethnobotanical uses

Second only to water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. L-theanine was discovered as a constituent of green tea in 1949 and was approved in Japan in 1964 for unlimited use in all foods, including chocolates, soft drinks, and herb teas, except infant foods. It also provides a unique umami (brothy or savory) taste and flavor to green tea infusion.

General uses

L-theanine may help relieve stress by inducing a relaxing effect without drowsiness and may also possess immunologic attributes. Theanine may also have effects on the cardiovascular system and play a preventative role in cancer; however, limited clinical information is available to support these claims.

What is the recommended dosage?

Data supporting a clinical role for theanine are weak. Studies reporting an anti-anxiety effect used single doses of theanine 200 to 250 mg.

How safe is it?

Contraindications

None well established.

Pregnancy/nursing

Information regarding safety and efficacy in pregnancy and lactation is lacking.

Interactions

None well documented.

Side Effects

Few adverse reactions have been reported. Adverse reactions recorded in human studies using tea extracts include headache, dizziness, and GI symptoms.

Toxicities

Theanine is sold in the United States as a dietary supplement and has been granted GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status by the Food and Drug Administration.

 

Allowed me to be aware that these 2 ingredients will not harm me if taken as instructed.

I started taking this last week and I can honestly say that it works, it took a few days but I feel more energy without the hours of jittery feelings I would get. I notice I’m a lot calmer and happier during the day she into the night. You can take up to 4 in 24 hours but never take more than that because of the caffeine. I’m walking more because I’m not as tired and have more incentive to get up from my desk.
