Wow! I just learned some super cool stuff about the exclusive ingredients in EDGE! This is what makes this stuff AMAZING! Check it out–
Theacrine is a natural alkaloid from green tea ?. It doesn’t lose its effects over time (desensitize), like caffeine does, so it has the same potency every time. Studies show it also crosses the blood brain barrier, and increases dopamine levels, which helps with a TON of things, including chronic stress. It also raises glutathione levels inside cells, which combats oxidative stress. It has also been shown to help actively decrease inflammation. It CAN increase motivation to exercise (Yay!)
The L-theanine, is also found in green? & black tea☕️ and has been used to treat anxiety and has been shown to improve concentration and focus?. It’s been described as causing a “wakeful relaxation.” It is able to do this by also increasing dopamine, serotonin & GABA levels in the brain. Recent studies show L-theanine has increased test performance without the agitation of caffeine. Take a look at the video below, provided by Plexus Worldwide.
