Ingredient Safety

Ingredient Safety
Category Average

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cited that caffeine intake up to 400 mg/day is generally recognized as safe for healthy adults. Two servings of this product would exceed this limit.

This product contains Acesulfame Potassium (Ace K), which is a controversial artificial sweetener linked to a negative influence on taste preference. Pending research is testing hypotheses regarding Ace K's negative effects on cognitive function, prenatal development, and carcinogenicity.

This product contains Sucralose (Splenda), considered a safer artificial sweetener. Sucralose has been suggested to be a trigger of migraines in those who have previously suffered from migraines, but has shown no conclusive carcinogenic, reproductive, or neurological adverse effects in existing clinical research.

This product was also tested for 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA), an illegal ingredient touted as a "natural" stimulant. No DMAA content was detected in this product.


Projected Efficacy

Projected Efficacy
Category Average

This product contains 247.82 mg of caffeine per serving. Caffeine is a popular stimulant shown to increase energy, decrease fatigue and, according to limited evidence, improve cognitive function. It has been shown to enhance endurance during physical activity in a dose-dependent manner, with significant effects apparent at doses of 2.5 mg/kg of bodyweight (~170 mg for a 150 lb. individual; ~227 mg for a 200 lb. individual).

This product contains 306.69 mg of acetyl-tyrosine per serving. L-tyrosine supplementation is typically used to maintain neurological performance during activities requiring moderate to long-term mental exertion. Doses of 100 mg/kg of bodyweight (~7 g for a 150 lb. individual; ~9 g for a 200 lb. individual) taken 60 minutes prior to physical activity have shown efficacy in human studies. N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NALT) is a more soluble form of the amino acid; limited evidence indicates that it may be a viable alternative to L-tyrosine.
