When you think of a supplement that will send you into high gear, you probably think of caffeine. ThinkitDrinkit’s Kickstart Energy base provides you with caffeine sourced primarily from guarana. Guarana is derived from the seeds of a South American tree, and contains an even higher concentration of caffeine than coffee beans. Guarana also contains theophylline and theobromine, which are chemicals similar to caffeine.(1) Also included is taurine, an organic acid naturally produced in the body and stored in the gallbladder in bile. Taurine helps the body metabolize fat, making it essential for energy production and necessary for many aspects of health because “good” fats transport vitamins and minerals as well as insulate and protect your vital organs. The six true B-vitamins found in this blend function similarly to taurine, helping the body to convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is ‘burned’ to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as ‘B complex vitamins’, also help the body to metabolize fats and protein. (2) Inositol, although not a true B vitamin, is sometimes referred to as “B8”, and it actually a carbohydrate with a sugar-like taste. It modulates the nervous system, by improving the communication between neurotransmitters (chemicals that send messages via electric pulses between nerve cells) which increases cognitive ability. Helping you to maintain focus during an energy rush, inositol controls the “kick” in this Kickstart Energy base blend.
