What are the ingredients in IN-perium?
Caffeine: Caffeine has been shown to improve physical performance, including muscular and cardiovascular endurance, and performance in high intensity anaerobic exercise. This is in addition to improved mental performance, such as improved reaction times, concentration, and wakefulness.
Medium Chain Triglycerides: These are easily converted to ketones and provide readily available energy for the body. This can also help IN-Perium to act as an appetite suppressant for those practicing insulin restriction fasting.
Beta-Alanine: This isomer of the amino acid Alanine has been shown to increase muscular performance, especially during periods of intense exertion from 1 to 5 minutes, perfect for getting that extra couple reps in your X3 set! Performance improvements have been shown for recreational, competitive, and tactical athletic endeavors, and some research suggests a cognitive enhancement effect as well.
Electrolytes: IN-Perium contains Na, K, and Mg. Sodium (Na) and Potassium (K) are essential electrolytes that are critical for cellular function, blood pressure regulation, and muscle and nerve activation. Magnesium is a necessary electrolyte associated with positive impacts on blood glucose, HbA1c, and insulin sensitivity. Deficiency can lead to high blood pressure. Magnesium is primarily naturally occurring in nuts and leafy green vegetables, so deficiency can easily occur with typical western diets.
L-Theanine: This amino acid is not commonly found in food, but is naturally occurring in green tea. Especially when combined with caffeine, L-Theanine has been shown to improve cognition and attention, and has been reported to help mitigate the “jittery” feelings that some individuals associate with caffeine consumption. It also may contribute to the positive health effects associated with green tea consumption in other research.
Coffee Extract: Because IN-Perium is suitable for use as a coffee replacement, it contains an extract of natural coffee to provide the other likely beneficial compounds found in coffee, since there is robust evidence that coffee consumption has health benefits beyond those attributable exclusively to the caffeine it contains.
