When looking for a supplement that delivers energy support, there are a few key ingredients that you should look for.
Let’s start with caffeine: When it comes to supporting healthy energy levels1 (plus, enhancing both concentration and physical performance), this phytonutrient is a no-brainer.* But you already knew that (and chances are you already use coffee or tea to support your own energy in the morning and throughout the day).
We’re especially fond of the synergistic impact of caffeine and L-theanine together. Highly concentrated in matcha and other types of green tea, L-theanine is a calming phytochemical that increases alpha brain wave activity2, helping to “tone down” the stimulating effects of caffeine.* In other words? Adding L-theanine to your caffeine can help you avoid jitters and that dreaded afternoon crash.*
Vitamins that support neurotransmitter synthesis are also key, as they help ensure your brain has everything it needs to function at optimal performance. While we consider vitamin B12 the true champion in this category, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and the rest of the B vitamins do wonders in supporting overall cognitive health and energy production.*
As far as botanicals go, adaptogenic herbs like Panax ginseng, ashwagandha, maca, guarana, and Rhodiola rosea are certainly worth mentioning. These incredibly potent plants help build resilience to everyday stressors and give the central nervous system the support it needs to navigate mentally and physically demanding challenges with ease.*
