      Coffee Over Cardio | Nootropics 101 Smart Start Creamer, healthy coffee creamer

      Coffee Over Cardio | Nootropics 101

      Coffee Over Cardio | Nootropics 101

      Need coffee to help power through your day? Add a boost of focus, concentration, and energy to your cup with the nootropics featured in our Smart Start Creamers. Nootropics are supplements, and foods that improve cognitive function. They get you through those performance plateaus and keep you in control. Our Smart Start Creamers contains two high-quality nootropics: TeaCrine® and Cognizin®. 

      TeaCrine® is a patent-pending compound containing pure theacrine, which can be found in natural sources such as the Camellia tealeaf, coffee, and certain exotic fruits. Theacrine is structurally similar to caffeine, but studies show that the body does not develop a tolerance to theacrine as it does to caffeine. The benefits of Theacrine include:

      • Supports healthy metabolic activity and energy production
      • Decreases physical discomfort associated with intense exercise
      • Reduces perceived exertion from exercise
      • Increases cellular protection through antioxidant activity
      • Supports a positive mood and decreased feelings of stress and irritability
      • Increases motivation to exercise and accomplish tasks
      • Increases neural drive

      It does not increase heart rate or blood pressure and is not a stimulant.* 

      Clinically tested for efficacy, Cognizin® delivers a patented form of citicoline, nature’s way of keeping the brain’s energy-producing centers firing. Cognizin is also pure, vegetarian and allergen-free. The specific benefits* of citicoline include:

      • Supports memory
      • Promotes faster recall speed
      • Supports learning capacity
      • Promotes focus and attention
      • Supports brain energy

      Yes, caffeine is technically a nootropic, but it simply helps the brain wake up. Adding the premium compounds in our Smart Start Creamers takes things to the next level, making your thoughts sharper and your actions more effective. Nootropics are safe and designed to optimize your cognitive function both immediately and long-term - even more reason to add them to your cup every day!

      10 Mood-Boosters

      10 Mood-Boosters

      Ready to conquer this Monday?


      Whether we have the Monday morning blues or the mid-day drag, we all have that occasional moment where we aren’t feeling our best. We try to ride it out, hoping our attitudes will naturally improve over time, when what we could be doing is nipping that negativity in the bud! While that can work, I have a list of ten mood-boosters that will INSTANTLY better your day.


      1. Reflect on the positives. Instead of focusing on your negative thoughts, draw your attention to the things that bring you gratitude. You can even make a mini gratitude list.


      2. Listen to your favorite tune. Play a song that makes you dance in your seat, and let yourself jam out for a few minutes.


      3. Get moving. If you’re unable to exercise, try a quick walk around the office. Getting your heart pumping provides a prolonged energy boost.


      4. Look at a picture with a loved one. It sounds cheesy, but science shows that seeing someone you love stimulates your brain’s release of dopamine (“happy chemicals”).


      5. Perform an act of kindness. Doing something good for someone else, even something as simple as a compliment, is proven to improve your well-being.


      6. Organize. De-clutter your space to de-clutter your mind!


      7. Eat a snack. I’m totally a snacker – if I go too long without eating, I feel tired and irritable. Some mood-boosting foods are dark chocolate, greek yogurt, bananas, and oatmeal.


      8. Try aromatherapy. Citrus and peppermint are go-to essential oils for energy, and lavender is great for de-stressing.


      9. Address the issue(s). If you know exactly what’s bringing you down, acknowledge it and then devise a solution for it. If it’s a task, get it done. If it’s something out of your control, reason with yourself as to why you shouldn’t let it affect your happiness.


      10. BREATHE. Whether you’re into meditation or not, take a minute to focus on your breathing. Take slow, mindful, deep breaths – there are apps available for added guidance and targeted exercises, such as Headspace.
