Ingredients

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a well-known water-soluble vitamin. Vitamin C is critical for health and wellness as it acts as antioxidant to fight off free radicals and to regenerate Vitamin E. As an immune boosting nutrient, Vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells (lymphocytes and phagocytes), which help protect the body against infection. Vitamin C may also be linked to cardiovascular health by naturally promoting nitric oxide (NO) production and vasodilation.*

Vitamin C is essential for tissue growth and repair due to its role in the formation of collagen, the body’s main structural protein.* This essential vitamin is cofactor in the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters, enzymes, and L-carnitine, an amino acid involved in the utilization of fatty acids as fuel.*

Thiamin (Vitamin B1)

Thiamin is a B-vitamin, and is involved in numerous functions in the body, including carbohydrate metabolism for energy production. Thiamin is also involved in muscular and nervous system functions.*

Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)

Riboflavin is a B vitamin known for its bright yellow color, and is involved in energy production from carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.*

Niacin (Vitamin B3)

Niacin is involved in converting the potential energy in dietary carbohydrates, proteins and fats into cellular energy in the form of ATP.*

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is a co-factor involved an array of biological processes, and functions as a catalyst in over 100 enzymes, including those involved neurotransmitter function and energy metabolism.*

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B-12 is critical for the function and maintenance of a healthy nervous system, and for the production of energy from the food we eat.* Vitamin B-12 is also essential in an array of biological functions, including hemoglobin and red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis.* Natural dietary sources of B-12 are primarily of animal origin, thereby making B-12 supplementation important for vegans and some vegetarians.

Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)

Like other B vitamins, Pantothenic Acid is also instrumental in energy production through the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.* Pantothenic acid also plays an important role in the natural synthesis of neurotransmitters for healthy cognition.*

Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)

Chromium is an essential mineral best known for its role in carbohydrate metabolism and healthy blood glucose maintenance, the latter of which may help support healthy body composition.* Chromium is also directly involved in the metabolism of fats and proteins, and appears to play a role in heart health.*

Taurine

Taurine is an important amino acid that is produced by the body, but also commonly found in dietary sources such as various meat, fish and dairy. Although not involved in protein synthesis like other amino acids, this conditionally-essential amino acid serves vital roles in the body, including the cardiovascular system, the nervous system and in eye health.* A very popular ingredient in energy drinks, Taurine functions as an antioxidant and has been suggested to help increase endurance and increase the natural production of catecholamines like norepinephrine and dopamine.*

Green Tea Extract

Green tea is the name for non-oxidized Camellia sinensis, and contains an array of bioactive health-supporting compounds like amino acids, polyphenols and catechins, with epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) being the most extensively-studied catechin. EGCG has been found to promote healthy metabolic function and may support cellular and cognitive health.*

Caffeine

Caffeine is a commonly-used stimulant known for promoting energy, greater alertness, and enhanced mental function.* The main mechanism of action is caffeine's antagonizing effect on adenosine receptors. Adenosine is a naturally-produced chemical in the body that signals fatigue when it binds to receptors in the brain. By binding to adenosine receptors, caffeine helps prevent this fatigue signal and promotes alertness and wakefulness.* This inhibitory effect of adenosine also works to favorably influence catecholamine systems.*

In addition to its well-know affects on energy and alertness, caffeine has been shown to increase power output, training volume, strength and to help support muscular endurance.*
