    L-Theanine & Caffeine Improves Simple Reaction Time

    Haskell CF, Kennedy DO. The effects of L-theanine, caffeine, and their combination on cognition and mood. Biol Psychol. 2008

    Through clinical trials, researchers have found that 200 mg of l-theanine can increase alpha-wave activity in the brain, which allows you to be relaxed while awake–similar to a zen, meditative state.[1]


     When tested against placebo and caffeine, the combination provided quicker reaction times, improved memory recall, and enhanced verbal accuracy.[16]

    Caffeine

    100 mg

    Caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive compound in the world. As a nootropic, it provides mental stimulation, alertness, and improved mood.[2]

    Rhodiola Rosea

    Rhodiola rosea is a plant that has been shown to improve resilience to stress, increase alertness, and combat fatigue, especially in strenuous settings.[3]

    Ashwagandha

    180 mg (>7% withanolides)

    Ashwagandha has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for several thousand years and has been shown to help relieve stress, combat fatigue, and improve concentration.[4]

    N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine

    250 mg

    N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is a more bioavailable form of L-Tyrosine, an amino acid. The compound has been shown to increase attention, heighten alertness, and improve stress-resilience.[5]

    Theobromine

    Theobromine, derived from cocoa beans has been shown to improve mood, focus, and increase alertness. It is highly synergistic with caffeine and has a longer duration.

    Mucuna Pruriens

    L-Dopa, a compound from mucuna pruriens has been shown to improve motivation levels as well as increase libido and memory retention.[7]

    TeaCrine®

    50 mg

    TeaCrine® has been shown to benefit energy, focus, and mood without the negative tolerance effects nor crash that typically follows caffeine consumption.


    4 BRAIN VITAMINS


    Niacin

    Vitamin B6 is an essential vitamin which is required for the conversion of several key neurotransmitters. We use P5P, one of the most bioactive forms of B6.[10]

    50 mcg (methylcobalamin)

    B12 is an essential vitamin that is crucial for the synthesis of key neurotransmitters which correlate with our mood, energy, and stress levels.[11]

    POWERHOUSE ADAPTOGENIC HERBS THAT

    ERADICATE STRESS & COMBAT FATIGUE

    RHODIOLA ROSEA

    metaDRIVE® contains Rhodiola rosea extract that is standardized to 3% salidroside, the most active compound within the plant, responsible for the stimulation that the nootropic provides.

    ASHWAGANDHA

    metaDRIVE® contains Ashwagandha extract that is standardized to a minimum of 7% withanolides, the compound responsible for most of the benefits of the ayurvedic plant.


    The combination of Rhodiola rosea and Ashwagandha balances out the stimulation from the caffeine  by lowering cortisol which reduces stress levels. Both compounds have also been shown to have anti-fatigue and anti-inflammatory properties, being touted as "miracle herbs" in Asian countries throughout history.[22] [23]
