Raw Series Caffeine is a formulation containing powdered, 100% pure caffeine that is the most popular and most researched stimulant. Caffeine effectively stimulates, eliminates fatigue as well as improves concentration and cognitive functions. Physically active people will surely appreciate the caffeine beneficial influence on mental and physical performance, increase of power and delaying the occurrence of fatigue.
Caffeine is a substance of psycho-stimulating effect, counted among purine alkaloids. Caffeine is found in the largest amounts in cocoa beans. It is also found in guarana seeds and green tea or Yerba Mate leaves.
Caffeine is mainly absorbed in stomach and smaller intestine around 45 minutes after consumption and then it is distributed among the whole organism. The caffeine half-life is around 5 hours, it is, however, an individual number and depends on many factors – starting with age, frequency of use, stomach and liver condition as far as the variations in CYP1A2 gene which is mainly responsible for caffeine metabolism (depending on this gene variations, caffeine can be processes faster or slower).
Caffeine is a psycho-stimulant, which is owed to its ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier with ease and the resemblance to adenosine particles. This structural similarity of caffeine to the adenosine particles enables it to be conjugated with adenosine receptors, blocking its activity. Adenosine is a neurotransmitter of an inhibitory character in the nervous system, responsible, among others, for the feeling of fatigue. Adenosine also blocks the functions of neuropeptide responsible for the stimulation, namely orexin.
Limiting the activity of adenosine together with the increased release of other neurotransmitters (acetylcholine, dopamine, adrenaline) means that caffeine effectively stimulates the body and delays the occurrence of fatigue.
Caffeine basic principle of operation as a stimulant is based on the reduction of fatigue. Many research shows also caffeine effectiveness in increasing the focus level. Intake of caffeine increases the arousal, improves brain functioning and reduces the reaction time. This substance effectively increases blood flow in the brain which naturally enhances its performance. It is also possible to experience the mood improvement, since caffeine raises the levels of dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters.
Another desirable effect of caffeine is the incensement of the level of cyclic adenosine-3′,5′- monophosphate (cAMP). Caffeine is unselective phosphodiesterase inhibitor – an enzyme responsible for the cAMP breakdown and because of this caffeine contributes to the increase of cAMP levels. Such a mechanism makes it possible to ascribe caffeine slimming properties, due to the fact that cAMP participates in lipolysis.
Additional caffeine action supporting the fat tissue reduction is its influence on the stimulation of β-androgenic receptors which are located mainly in fat tissue. Because of that caffeine enhances the lipolysis process, so the release of fatty acids stored in adipocytes. That is why caffeine is often used in supplements aiding the reduction of fat tissue. Additionally, caffeine suppresses the appetite and by doing so it helps to control craving on a diet with a negative caloric balance.
Caffeine as a legal doping – caffeine was once put on the List of Prohibited Substances And Methods by World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) as an illegal substance, which only confirms its effectiveness. Its positive influence on strength, endurance or ability to generate power has been repeatedly shown. The research indicate that caffeine application before physical exertion increases the use of fatty acids as a main fuel, limiting therefore the loss of glycogen. Moreover, this substance increases the oxygen use and improves blood flow, supplying the tissues with necessary elements in a better way.
To sum up, Raw Series Caffeine, is a pure caffeine in a convenient, powdered form facilitating the adjustment of proper doses. For ages, used as a stimulant raising energy levels and improving cognitive functions.
The amount of caffeine present in coffee or popular energy drinks is usually around 80 mg, while its upper safe limit is around 400 mg. To adjust the doses to individual needs one can calculate them using to the values from 4 to 6 mg per kilogram of body weight.
The half-time of caffeine should be taken into account and caffeine must not be taken too late, since it can cause problems with sleep.

Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery. In the sports supplementation, caffeine is used as a stimulant nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. Polyphenols, both occurring in coffee beans, such as cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. It is included in many dietary stimulants (creatine stacks, no-boosters, beverages). It is a component of fat burners. It is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements.
Dosage: 100-600 mg per day. Due to the long release of activity should not be used in the evening, before sleep.
