L- Theanine is the main ingredient in all of our coffees due to it's focus amplifying effects. This nootropic amino acid works synergistically with caffeine to counter the jitters and crash and create a calming, stabilizing effect on the brain and mood. Many studies support that combining theanine and caffeine improves cognitive performance and provides sustained energy.
Essential Amino Acids
Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and neurotransmitters. Essential Amino Acids are those that the body cannot produce on it's own, so must be consumed. We are using a blend of 9 essential amino acids in a ratio that can help increase energy levels, build muscle and strength, boost metabolism and weight loss, improve appetite control, help regulate digestion, fortify connective tissue, and support immune function.

Cinnamon is a bark that tastes great in coffee and is loaded with antioxidants. This bark exhibits a couple of beneficial effects when consumed. The first is its powerful anti inflammatory properties. These properties are thought to aid in digestion and prevent indigestion and heartburn. Another advantage of using cinnamon with meals is its ability to control blood sugar levels. Some studies show that cinnamon consumption can lower blood sugar by over 20%.
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is an essential vitamin that your body needs but cannot produce so must be consumed. It’s important for boosting your energy, improving your memory, and helping prevent heart disease. It supports the normal function of your nerve cells and is needed for red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis. B12 deficiency is common, can take years to show up, and diagnosing it can be complex. Low levels of B12 have been linked to mood and brain disorders like depression and dementia. When vitamin B12 levels are too low, the production of red blood cells is altered, causing anemia and low energy.
