What is Kick-Start Caffeine?
Most of us look forward to a cup of coffee or tea to start the day. And that’s pretty much been the case since these staple drinks arrived in Europe in the 17th century. But it was only in 1819 that caffeine was discovered, when a young German doctor called Runge isolated the white, bitter substance.
Since then, there have been many studies into its effects on alertness, energy and physical performance. And as a result, caffeine, which can also be produced synthetically, has found its way into soft drinks and energy products.
While it must be emphasised that the EU Commission hasn’t yet approved health claims on caffeine, this compound is widely regarded as one of the most effective products for enhancing exercise and sport performance.
Why is ours better?
Caffeine in tablet form is released at a much slower rate than from other sources, such as gum or drinks, so the effect is steady and sustained.
Developed by our nutrition experts, Kick-Start Caffeine tablets, delivered in pocket-sized blister packs, are slow-release for a more prolonged, sustained effect. Each tablet contains 50mg pure caffeine, offering convenience and an exceptional value for money. You can take up to four tablets at a time and up to eight tablets over the course of one day, according to personal needs.
Who is this for?
It’s great for anyone who is looking for a slow release caffeine tablet for increased alertness and sustained physical performance, especially in endurance sports.
