CaffeineCaffeine is the most popular stimulant on the globe, a powerful stimulant to the Central Nervous System, many use it to increase energy levels when its needed the most (work, study, pre-workout)
Caffeine affects the CNS causing more alertness and allowing for more intense focus. The chemical structure of caffeine is very similar to that of adenine (a component of ATP, DNA, and cyclic AMP). This helps explain caffeine's stimulating effects.
Because of the structural similarities, caffeine can slip right into adenosine receptors, keeping cyclic AMP active rather than it being broken down. When cyclic AMP breaks down, the body's energy supply decreases. Because caffeine fools the body into using enzymes to break it down instead, the cyclic AMP supply remains higher for longer.*
Ferrous Fumarate (Iron)Iron is the most abundant mineral in the blood. It is essential for making haemoglobin and red-blood cells and is necessary for the transport of oxygen in the body.
