1.What Is It?
Caffeine (1,3,7-Trimethylxanthine Theine) is a potent central nervous system (CNS) and metabolic stimulant. Naturally Caffeine is found in leaves, seeds and fruits of over sixty plant species most commonly the ‘bean’ of the coffee plant. Caffeine is also synthesized in laboratories and used in energy drinks, caffeine tablets, and in many pre-workout and fat loss supplements.
2.What Does It Do?
Caffeine helps to reduce fatigue, improve concentration and increase physical performance. In particular, it reduces sedation and relaxation by inhibiting the production of Adenosine, the chemical associated with sleep . This results in an increase in wakefulness, focus, better body coordination and can increase performance in cardiovascular and anaerobic exercise.
Combined with a sensible diet and workout regime, Caffeine will help elevate your energy and mental focus, fight fatigue and increase muscle power.

Caffeine starts working as soon as it enters the bloodstream, which is typically 15 – 30 minutes after consumption. Users can expect to experience an increase in mental alertness, concentration and mental focus within this timeframe. Consistent use in conjunction with a sensible diet and workout regime will experience the full performance enhancing effects within the first 2 weeks of use.
