L-Taurine a naturally occurring amino acid derivative with antioxidant properties that plays vital roles in nearly every cell in the body. It is revered by some researchers as a “wonder molecule” because few supplements safely provide as many potential health and performance benefits. L-Taurine and caffeine perfectly complement each other in that they both improve physical and mental performance.
-Detoxification and Liver protection: The liver is a detoxification machine and L-Taurine promotes liver function by protecting it against free radicals and toxins AND by preventing (even reversing according to some studies) fatty liver damage. With regards to alcohol, it facilitates the breakdown of acetylaldehyde (a hangover producing by product of alcohol consumption), thereby reducing the unwanted after effects of, ahem... over indulgence;)
-Physical Performance: Boosts physical performance by helping the flow of glucose to the muscles and supports the growth of muscle mass.
In animal studies, L-Taurine caused muscles to work harder and for longer and increased the muscles' ability to contract and produce force. It also reduced fatigue and muscle damage during a workout
-Central Nervous System and Brain Function: Increases glycine and GABA to sooth the brain (AKA ease anxiety). It also protects the brain by reducing the harmful effects of excess glutamate and other toxins.
-Cardiovascular: Reduces blood pressure and regulates the body’s calcium level, reducing the risk of arteriosclerosis and heart attack.
-Digestion: Forms bile salts, which play an important role in digestion. May improve blood sugar control and combat diabetes.
So like... literally every part of you benefits from this one which is why it is the "star" of this blend.

Less than 2% of Americans meet the US recommendations for potassium either because of inadequate diet or deficiencies resulting from loss of water. To get more in your diet, consume foods, such as beet greens, spinach, kale, salmon, or Smart Owl Coffee ReCharge Blend.

The combination of caffeine and L-theanine produce a low-stress, sustained, super focus that allows you to achieve maximum productivity, without the jitters and crash that you might experience with coffee alone. L-theanine is an essential amino acid that is primarily found in tea leaves. This known nootropic, or cognitive enhancer, safely bolsters the brain in several ways. It increases alpha brain waves, which reduce anxiety and promote creativity and a calm mood. It is also associated with an elevation in levels of beneficial non-excitatory neurotransmitters, namely GABA, and other compounds, such as dopamine and seratonin, that facilitate smooth communication among brain cells. L-theanine also plays a role in immune regulation and aids in digestion.
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.
