The five ingredients blended together in ThinkitDrinkit's Caffeine Free Energy BOOST are proven to provide significant immediate and long term energy benefits without the negative effects of caffeine.
Taurine is an organic amino acid known to improve the body’s ability to transport oxygen, a critical component of maintaining optimal energy levels. Taurine is found mostly in meats. Depending on diet, it may be difficult to maintain optimal levels of taurine through food alone. That's why adding taurine supplements is important.
Scientific studies show there are many benefits associated with taurine. These include:
Enhanced mental performance
As people age, their levels of taurine in the brain decrease. Many experts believe that higher taurine levels improve memory and mental function.
Several years ago, Austrian researchers published a study that examined the effectiveness of energy drinks that include taurine on graduate students.
Result: The energy drink was proven to have positive effects on mental performance and mood. Other studies have found that similar drinks that include taurine improve attention and verbal reasoning.
Improved athletic performance
A study published by Japanese researchers included 11 men aged 18 to 20 who were asked to exercise on bicycles until they were exhausted.
After taking taurine supplements for seven days prior to workout, the men showed significant increases in their capacity to transport and use oxygen and their time until they reached exhaustion while bicycling.
Result: The researchers credited the improvement in oxygen transport and stamina to taurine's antioxidant activity and to what it does to protect cells.
Note: Scientists consider taurine safe when taken at the level in our BOOST. Excess taurine not needed by the body is typically excreted by the kidneys.
Ginseng, a natural organic substance, is known to restore and enhance energy and well-being. It one of the most popular herbal remedies in the world today.
Some prominent studies of ginseng prove its benefits:
- Ginseng may help stimulate physical and mental activity among people who are weak and tired. A Mayo Clinic study revealed that ginseng showed positive results in helping cancer patients with fatigue. The study included 340 subjects who were either in the cancer treatment or post treatment phase. Half the patients were given 2,000 milligrams of ginseng daily, the others a placebo.
Result: Researchers found little improvement in energy after four weeks. However, at eight weeks there was a significant increase in energy levels reported by the ginseng group when compared with the placebo group. There was a 20-point improvement in fatigue when measured on a 100 point fatigue scale.
- Research conducted at the Medical School of Nantong University in China looked into whether ginseng improves thinking ability and cognition. It analyzed data from five randomized, double blind, placebo controlled studies of 289 healthy people who were young or middle aged. Four studies analyzed the effects of ginseng over eight to 12 week periods. One analyzed short term effects after only two days of taking ginseng.
- Several studies demonstrated an increase in certain measures of cognitive function among participants taking ginseng.
- One study found a statistically significant improvement in working memory among people who took ginseng.
- The same study associated taking ginseng with a significant increase in calmness.
- Another trial involving 112 participants found that the group receiving ginseng scored significantly better on certain tests of learning and memory than those who took a placebo.
- Several studies showed improvement in quality of life, social relationships and physical health among participants taking ginseng.
- There were no serious side effects observed in connection with taking ginseng.
Quercetin is a type of antioxidant found in things like leafy greens, tomatoes, berries and broccoli. It’s technically a plant pigment which is why it’s found in richly colored, nutrient-packed fruits and vegetables.
Quercetin plays a key role in fighting free radical damage, the effects of aging and inflammation.
Quercetin is thought to help increase athletic performance and endurance because of its beneficial effects on blood flow. Researchers from the School of Applied Physiology at the Georgia Institute of Technology found that, on average, quercetin provides a statistically significant benefit in exercise capacity and endurance.
D-ribose, also known as ribose or Beta-D-ribofuranose, is a type of sugar that your body produces naturally. It plays several important roles including:
- Producing energy in the form of ATP (the type used by cells).
- Building RNA (ribonucleic acid, the genetic material that is critical for the body to function).
- Increasing muscle energy.
A study of d-ribose supplements showed that they provide the following benefits:
- Increased energy levels.
- Improved sleep quality.
- Enhanced mental clarity.
- Improved feelings of well being.
B vitamin complex
B vitamins provide many energy-enhancing benefits. Most people can improve their health by taking supplements, especially athletes, vegetarians and vegans, people over 50 and anyone using prescription antacids.
B vitamins play an important role in converting food into fuel, increasing energy, enhancing mood, improving memory and supplying other health benefits.
B vitamins are essential for transforming food into ATP, the type of energy cells use. Without them, this process cannot happen. Converting food into cellular energy involves hundreds of chemical reactions. B vitamins support many of those reactions.
Here are some of the specific things each of the B vitamins does in the body:
B1 (Thiamine) supports the creation of new cells.
B2 (Riboflavin) helps produce red blood cells and fights free radicals, which can cause damage to the cells in the body.
B3 (Niacin) regulates the nervous and digestive systems and supports the conversion of food into energy.
B5 (Pantothenic acid) breaks down fats and carbohydrates and turns them into energy.
B6 (Pyridoxine) turns food into energy.
B12 (Cobalamin) regulates the nervous system and supports red blood cell formation.
