Caffeine is a purine alkaloid, naturally present in coffee seeds and tea bush leaves. It is the most popular psychoactive substance in the world.
The mechanism of caffeine action is multi-directional. First of all, caffeine blocks the adenosine receptors A1 and A2, which leads to increased activity of the central nervous system, alertness, elimination of the feeling of fatigue, increased heart rate and increase in the release of neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine and dopamine.
Another mechanism of caffeine action is blocking cAMP phosphodiesterase, which leads to relaxation of smooth muscles and increased breakdown of glycogen and lipids to produce cellular energy. That’s why we can say about the stimulating effects of caffeine on metabolism.
L-theanine is a non-protein amino acid present in green tea leaves, showing structural similarity to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). L-theanine has a characteristic calming and stress-relieving effect. It brings a state of relaxation but does not cause a feeling of sluggishness, so it is often used to support concentration and productivity.
The combination of caffeine and L-theanine allows us to achieve the maximum benefits from these two substances. Caffeine is characterized by a fairly short time effective time, often manifested by a sudden, unpleasant drop in energy levels. The addition of L-theanine allows the prolongation of caffeine action, eliminates the feeling of nervousness and contributes to the feeling of relaxation, which promotes productive mental work.
L-theanine has anti-stress properties and has a positive effect on the quality of sleep. These properties undoubtedly have a beneficial effect on cognitive functions such as memory processes and concentration. Therefore, it can be an invaluable help in the period of intensive learning, finals, etc.
To sum up, Apollo's Hegemony Caffeine + Theanine is recommended especially during a period of intense mental effort and for people who feel excessive nervousness and difficulty concentrating after just using caffeine.
This preparation is an ideal substitute for coffee, especially for people in need of more intensive stimulation, who show poor caffeine tolerance, manifested by anxiety and nervousness. It is best to take the preparation about 30 minutes before the planned intensive mental effort. For even better pro-cognitive effects, additional supplementation with adaptogens should be considered.
During supplementation of this preparation special caution should be taken by people suffering from hypertension.

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.
L-theanine is an amino acid, not building proteins, occurring naturally in the dried green tea leaves, absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, overcomes easily blood-brain barrier, affecting the nervous system and the relation between neurotransmitters (e.g.dDopamine, serotonin, gamma-aminobutyric acid), with a relaxing effect and increases the psycho-physical capacity, (concentration, memory, alertness). Recommended for use for people burdened with considerable physical effort, athletes of sport disciplines that require concentration and memory, also for students in the period before exams. Available in the form of mono-preparations and multi-component relaxing and post-workout anti-stress supplements..
Dosage: customarily used in supplementation 50-200mg per day
Green tea extract is a concentrate that contains biologically active compounds: polyphenols (e.g. catechin, in the form of EGCG - epigallocatechin gallate), having antioxidant properties and a small thermogenic potential, modifies the action of testosterone metabolites, DTH. Green tea extract is an ingredient of many sports supplements containing fat burners, having pro-health and vitaminizing effect; also for those with low physical activity as an antioxidant and slimming supplement. Available either as mono-preparations, ready drinks, and above all as an extract.
Dosage: 200-500 mg per day (depending of the content of other active bio-components).
