You already know that Kimera Koffee is the punch in the face for those foggy-brained early mornings. But, could all that caffeine be used to power through your daily workout? For a lot of people, the answer is absolutely... especially if you’re intermittent fasting. Here’s why...
Research shows that drinking caffeine before a sweat session can improve your athletic performance during intense exercise for up to 20 minutes. That’s not all! Another study showed that caffeine can boost your endurance during exercise, allowing you to work longer before exhaustion shows up.
Add intermittent fasting to that equation, and you’ll be a fat-burning machine. Your sympathetic nervous system controls your body’s natural fat-burning processes, and it’s turned on by a lack of food and exercise. This increases the impact of cellular factors and catalysts, which cause your body to break down glycogen and fat for energy. Hello, fat burning! And don’t worry, coffee without any calories added can actually HELP your fast, not break it.
But you can’t just sip on a cup mindlessly -- timing is critical.
Although you may feel an initial buzz of energy after your first sip, don’t be fooled, because the cuppa Joe hasn’t fully entered your system yet. The optimal timing is to workout 45 minutes after finishing your first cup. After that milestone, your body is using up the caffeine, and its effects lessen with time. And, it doesn’t matter if you’re drinking a bold concoction, or a standard brew -- they all give you the best buzz at about that 45-minute mark.
If you’re already using a pre-workout powder to get your heart rate amped, it likely includes the same active stimulant as coffee. You guessed it: caffeine. But the benefit of drinking nature’s nectar instead one of those pre-workout supplements is that coffee doesn’t include additives such as creatine or beta-alanine. If you have one of those bottles laying around, do yourself a favor and check the ingredients. Then, compare it to the ingredients you find in your Koffee.
Let’s get really transparent. Our Kimera Koffe Original includes five ingredients: coffee, alpha GPC, Taurine, L-Thenine and DMAE. And, there’s a special reason why each of them is included in our blends:
- Alpha GPC is a natural choline compound found in the brain and can be found in soy, meats and fish. It helps improves memory, enhances mental focus and increases power output.
- Taurine is an organic acid commonly found in eggs that delays cognitive decline due to aging, fights oxidative stress, reduces fatigue, and helps boost fat metabolization.
- L-Theanine is a tea extract that balances daily anxiety, improves sleep patterns and helps prevent cholesterol-related damage
- DMAE is a choline molecule found in fish that boosts mental performance, increases energy, improves oxygen efficiency and promotes red blood cell function.
Grab a cup, and we’ll see you at the weight rack in 45 minutes!
