Battery Nutrition Caffeine
Caffeine Capsules are extremely popular and for a good reason.
They provide excellent value for money, not only because they are inexpansive, but also because they really work.
Caffeine is classified as a chemical compound with a pharmacological effect rather than as a nutrient. However, it is also considered a supplement or active ingredient for dietary supplements.
This ingredient can be found in multiple foods of daily use, such as coffee, green and black tea, guarana, coca cola, chocolate and even in energy drinks and gels.
Battery Nutrition Caffeine:

- Improves cognitive performance
- Helps increase energy levels
- Improves physical performance

Caffeine is a chemical compound that stimulates the central nervous system (CNS) and therefore also the heart and muscles.
By acting on the CNS, the consumption of products rich in caffeine promotes concentration and contributes to greater mental agility and better cognitive performance.
The combination of caffeine and glucose, as often found in energy drinks, enhances cognitive function even more than using them separately.
The chemical stimulates the release of adrenaline, which in turn increases the release of fatty acids into the bloodstream.
That is why during physical activity, the muscles are able to use more fatty acids as fuel, and therefore help to preserve reserves of muscle glycogen.
This allows more intensive training and delays muscular fatigue. Caffeine promotes calcium release into the muscles, which helps muscle contraction – an advantage for those who practice sports.
In addition to helping improve resilience when consumed about 1 hour before training, products that contain caffeine also help to ‘burn’ fat stores and thereby promote weight loss.
Tip for athletes: as caffeine is quite an addictive product, it may be a good idea to stop taking caffeine for a few days or significantly reduce its consumption before a competition, in order to gain a competitive advantage.
This way a reduction in tolerance occurs, and when caffeine is taken again, it is likely to cause a stronger effect.
Caffeine is FDA-approved (by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) as a co-ingredient for pain medication, particularly for the treatment of headaches and/or migraine. Caffeine consumption also seems to improve respiratory function in asthma patients, up to at least 4 hours after consumption.
This substance also influences blood pressure control and can stimulate high blood pressure. However, because of the desensitization effect, the blood pressure increase is often minimal if caffeine is taken regularly.
How do Battery Nutrition Caffeine work and how will they benefit my training?
Caffeine is a naturally occurring stimulant found in coffee, tea, guarana and other herbs.
Caffeine works by inhibiting the effects of adenosine which is responsible for inducing sleep. Adenosine has a relaxing effect on the body which is blocked by caffeine leaving you more physically and mentally alert.
Caffeine improves mental focus and physical performance whilst delaying the onset of fatigue.
Studies have shown increases in strength output and energy levels leading to improved performance in both strength and endurance athletes.
Caffeine has been shown to boost metabolism through increased energy levels.
In addition it has been shown to increase the utilisation of fat for energy, especially during endurance activity.
It is this extensive list of performance benefits that have made caffeine a common feature in many pre-workout and fat burning supplements.
Caffeine is the most widely used performance boosting supplement on the market today.
Directions: Use the product depending on your tolerance level for caffeine before physical or mental activity.
