In the last batches of Apollo's Hegemony products, another glue was used for lids under the caps. The glue is weaker than previously used, this is why the lid often stays inside the cap when unscrewing the bottle. This does not affect the quality of products because during storage the lid adheres to the bottle and protects its contents.
Apollo's Hegemony Smart Caps is a dietary supplement containing natural, synergistically acting ingredients with a nootropic effect. The preparation aims to reduce fatigue, increase energy levels, and to improve mental clarity and productivity.
Caffeine is a purine alkaloid that belongs to the methylxanthine group. It naturally occurs, among others, in coffee, tea, and cocoa seeds. It is one of the most popular psychoactive substances in the world. Caffeine shows a stimulating effect on nervous, cardiovascular, and digestive system.
Caffeine works through several mechanisms, which include mainly blocking adenosine receptors (A1 and A2) in the brain and inhibiting phosphodiesterase. Inhibition of adenosine results in increased secretion of, e.g. adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin. The effect of this action is stimulation of the central nervous system, reduction of fatigue and drowsiness, improvement of physical and mental performance and an increase of concentration. Inhibition of phosphodiesterase leads to an increase in intracellular cAMP levels, which results in, e.g. stimulation of the breakdown of glycogen and intensification of the lipolysis and thus accelerates the basic metabolism.
L-theanine is a non-protein amino acid present in tea leaves. L-theanine shows unique properties – it is classified to nootropic compounds; it provides the calming and relaxing effect, causing no drowsiness. It affects the intensity of alpha waves in the brain and the activity of the glutamatergic system, which results in the improvement of concentration and vigilance, reduction of stress levels, and relaxation. L-theanine allows reduction of tension and introduces into a state of relaxation, while sharpening the attention, increasing the focus on the task performed and resistance to distractors. In addition, L-theanine has an antioxidant effect.
L-theanine has synergistic effects with caffeine. It supports the effective use of the nootropic potential of caffeine, extends its action while protecting against the potential side effects of caffeine – nervousness and over-stimulation. The combination of L-theanine and caffeine facilitates the creation of ideal conditions for productive mental work, ensuring tranquility, maximal concentration, and improvement of memory.
Theacrine is a purine alkaloid found in Kucha tea, with a similar structure and activity to caffeine. In addition to blocking adenosine receptors, theacrine additionally affects the dopamine D1 and D2 receptors. This compound has a beneficial effect on mood and motivation as well as it stimulates to action. Theacrine increases energy levels and improves mental efficiency. In comparison to caffeine, theacrine lasts longer and does not cause tolerance. Both of these compounds constitute a synergistic combination, complementing each other's actions.
In summary, Apollo's Hegemony Smart Caps is a preparation that effectively supports mental and physical performance. It is recommended especially for people performing physical or mental work, wanting to increase their productivity, to support cognitive functions, reduce stress levels, as well as to improve training achievements.
The product is ideally suited as a replacement for coffee. It is recommended to take the preparation about 20 minutes before intellectual or physical activity.
Due to a stimulating effect of the preparation, it should not be taken in the evening.

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.
Theacrine is a purine alkaloid which occurs naturally in the fruits of cupuaçu (Theobroma grandiflorum) and the leaves of Camellia assamica. It is structurally similar to caffeine but it has also additional ketone and methyl groups. It also energises, enhances focus and reduces drowsiness and fatigue. In contrary to caffeine, it has more lasting effects and rather does not affect blood pressure. Furthermore, it has been observed that the body develops tolerance to theacrine more slowly and that is why there is no need to increase its dosage to obtain the desired results.
Like caffeine, theacrine can bind to adenosine receptors without activating them. Nonetheless, its effects depend on the dosage. Its high doses block adenosine receptors whereas low doses have the opposite effects – they boost adenosine levels in the hippocampus and that is probably why they may reduce negative effects of excessive caffeine intake. In addition, theacrine modulates dopamine receptors. Their activation leads to higher motivation and enhanced cognitive skills. It is also believed to have analgesic and antioxidant effects.
In supplementation, theacrine is treated as a stimulant. It is used to reduce drowsiness and fatigue and boost mental performance. It is often combined with caffeine to enhance and prolong its effects and prevent the harmful consequences of excess caffeine.
Theacrine is most frequently found in pre-workout supplements and fat burners based on stimulants. Single-ingredient preparations with pure theacrine are also available on the market.
Dosage: No official guidelines.
The most common daily dosage is from 50 to 300 mg. Doses below 50 mg will have a relaxing effect and those around 300 mg a stimulating effect.
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
