We use the best fruit extracts we can get our hands on! Our mission is to make each chew an oasis of delicious flavor that will take you back to your fondest childhood memories.
Derived from the roots of the cassava plant (aka yuca or mandioca plant), tapioca is a low Glycemic Index (low G.I.) starch that provides the chewiness for our chews. It doesn't spike blood sugar like other simple carbohydrates found in typical energy drinks.
Our gelatin is a pasture raised and grass-fed bovine based protein that helps provide the structure and texture of our chews along with the tapioca syrup. It also helps to further reduce the glycemic index of the chews and enhance the flavor of the fruit extracts.
The "feel good" ingredient in coffee and energy drinks, caffeine is the most widely consumed stimulant in the world. Each PERFORM chew has 25mg, the equivalent of 1/2 shot of espresso, or 1/4 cup of coffee.
Our bodies naturally produce melatonin when the sun goes down, preparing the mind and body for sleep. In small doses, like the 150mcg in each Dreamtime chew, it won't make you sleepy but instead allow you to relax and improve the quality of your sleep on your own body's schedule.
An extract of tea, l-Theanine is an anti-inflammatory and has been shown to reduce feelings of anxiety. When combined with the caffeine in PERFORM, it provides a mental boost to improve focus and cognition.
Unique to our formulas, l-Ornithine is a natural compound that speeds up the removal of cellular waste, thereby reducing feelings of fatigue and speeding up exercise recovery.
Plants use special aromatic bio-chemicals to attract pollinators, repel predators, and send messages through the air to other plants. Terpenes have also been shown to have powerful anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Our formula draws from many pants, including lavender, citrus, pine and hemp.
Himalayan pink salt includes multiple forms of electrolytes that your body needs to maintain an optimal water balance. Additionally, a very small amount of salt can improve sleep by reducing hyponatremia, which can cause tossing and turning throughout the night.
Though normally thought of as increasing energy, B12 actually is a fatigue reducer. When we have too little B12 in our blood, which can occur in the hours following alcohol consumption, our bodies feel fatigued. B12 also helps our bodies naturally optimize their circadian rhythms by helping with natural melatonin production.
