“THE COGNITIVE BENEFITS OF THE STACK ARE DRAMATIC, MAKING THEM THE PERFECT BRAIN FOOD”

THE BASIS OF THE CORE FOCUS FORMULA

CAFFEINE

Caffeine is found in a variety of consumer products such as soft drinks, energy drinks and most commonly coffee and tea. Caffeine is the most popular stimulant in the world.

 

Caffeine is a stimulant known to affect the central nervous system. It is most commonly used to counteract fatigue and drowsiness and has the ability to increase wakefulness, alertness and focus. Caffeine’s main mechanism concerns antagonising adenosine receptors. Adenosine causes sedation and relaxation when it acts upon its receptors, located in the brain. Caffeine prevents this process to promote feelings of alertness and wakefulness.

 

Caffeine’s ergogenic properties aid shift workers, students and individuals with unusual sleeping patterns to enhance mental performance and to make fewer mistakes which would otherwise be caused by fatigue.

L-THEANINE

L-theanine (y-glutamylethylamide) is found almost exclusively in the tea plant. The average green tea drinker consumes about 20mg of l-theanine a day. You would need to consume a number of cups of tea before feeling the desired nootropic effect of L-theanine. L-theanine works by crossing the blood-brain barrier easily and acts upon the central nervous system to provide psychoactive effects. In the supplement form, L-theanine is used as an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety); it can promote healthy blood pressure, healthy sleep and help manage stress levels. L-theanine within the brain impacts levels of GABA and dopamine and is reported to increase alpha brainwave activity.

 

THE SYNERGY OF CAFFEINE AND L-THEANINE

When used together, L-theanine and caffeine provide benefits to amplify and refine the effects that either compound produces on its own. Many of the drawbacks of caffeine are nullified by the presence of L-theanine as a nootropic, such as darting attention span, jittery muscles and inability to rest followed by a crashing feeling. The cognitive benefits of the stack are dramatic making them the perfect brain food. Studies indicate the combination results in greater visual acuity, significantly increased mental focus, self-reported alertness, better reaction times, better memory recall and longer natural attention span. If you’ve ever asked: how to improve memory? Then the combination of these ingredients could be the answer. Core Focus, therefore, substantially outperforms other caffeine based products due to the inclusion of these synergistic ingredients.

 

The combination of caffeine and l-theanine has been tested in a number of clinical trials. Overall, they describe the same sought-after effects: an increased ability to focus, without the over-stimulating effects of caffeine alone. These studies have been performed by various organisations and have tested a range of factors, including the ability to perform demanding tasks and perceived feelings of focus and alertness.

 

Many studies have shown the following benefits of L-theanine and caffeine:

 

  • improved focus;
  • increased alertness;
  • enhanced cognitive function;
  • increased ability to ignore distractions.

One study, however, took it further. They looked at groups taking Caffeine and L-theanine versus a placebo and the amount of errors the subjects made. They observed higher error rates in the placebo group than in the caffeine / L-theanine group. So these ingredients not only make you think, focus and feel better, they actually make you more efficient at the tasks you are performing, leading to an increase in your productivity in the workplace.
