Caffeine is a natural substance, a stimulant, found in leaves, seeds, beans and fruits from a number of plants. The main sources of caffeine in our diet are tea, coffee, chocolate and cola.
Caffeine is also a popular performance-enhancing supplement, with a lot of scientific research behind it. In 2004, caffeine was removed from the WADA doping list.
Caffeine intake provides better focus, stimulates alertness and concentration, leads to a shorter reaction time and a reduced feeling of tiredness and pain. The recommended dosage of caffeine ranges from 1-6mg/kg body weight (BW). However, for caffeine, “the more the better” does not apply. Positive effects are already found from a dose of 1-3 mg/kg BW. The advantage of lower doses is that the use is not accompanied by the known side effects of caffeine such as palpitations, disturbance of fine motor skills, anxiety, shaking and trembling, restlessness, nervousness, dizziness and insomnia.
Etixx Caffeine Sport Gummies contains caffeine (80 mg per sachet) that helps to increase concentration, focus and alertness. It provides a mental as well as physical energy boost before and during exercise.
The carbohydrates (23 g per sachet) in the Caffeine Sport Gummies contribute to maintaining the energy levels during exercise. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy during exercise and the amount of available carbohydrates is a determining factor. The carbohydrate reserves in our body are limited.
