GLOSSARY
1,3,7-TRIMETHYL-1H-PURINE-2,6 (CAFFEINE)

1,3,7-Trimethyl-1H-Purine-2,6 (Caffeine)

 

How does it work?

Caffeine is a purine alkaloid found naturally in tea, coffee, cola nut, cacao and guarana. Roasting or fermenting these products releases the caffeine to have the desired effect once consumed.1  Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant causing increased heart rate and systolic blood pressure,  reduced appetite, mental alertness and muscle stimulation.2  It has also been shown to have some effect on lipolysis (fat breakdown) and increased energy performance.3

What results can be expected?

Caffeine temporarily increases mental alertness, increased energy and may assist weight loss by boosting metabolism and fat burning when in conjunction with kilojoule control and increased exercise.4
