A No Brainer...
It is well documented that the naturally occurring amino acid, L-theanine, increases cognitive performance, mood, and attention. These effects are known to be enhanced in the presence of caffeine, which makes this combo a NO BRAINER and the base from which all of our blends are built from.
Everyone who drinks coffee wants the benefit of a cool mood and fine focus, so why not experience this with every cup? While our specialized blends are supplemented with additional ingredients, they all contain L-Theanine.
We don't want to bore you with a bunch of science, but since we're nerds, we'll provide you with links to published articles explaining the known effects of L-theanine on brain function and the synergistic effects when this amino acid is consumed with caffeine.
Here is a taste of what you will read, "caffeine and L-theanine are capable of modulating cerebral haemodynamics, cognitive performance, mood and autonomic measures."
Sooo.... in a nutshell, you will experience:
a more stable, relaxed mood -which, come on, who couldn't handle a mood enhancer?
sustained energy -without the crash commonly associated with caffeine consumption
a heightened ability to focus -without the jittery effects commonly associated with high caffeine intake
