Caffeine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant, having the effect of warding off drowsiness and restoring alertness.

Where does CAFFEINE come from?

Caffeine (sometimes called Guaranine when found in Guarana, Mateine when found in Mate, and Theine when found in Tea) is a Xanthine Alkaloid found in the leaves and beans of the Coffee tree, in Tea, Yerba Mate, Guarana Berries, and in small quantities in Cocoa, the Kola Nut and the Yaupon Holly.

Beverages containing caffeine — such as Coffee, Tea, and Soda — enjoy popularity great enough to make caffeine the world's most popular psychoactive drug.

In plants, Caffeine acts as a natural pesticide that paralyzes and kills many insects feeding upon them.

In nature, caffeine is found with widely varying concentrations of the other Xanthine Alkaloids, Theophylline, and Theobromine, which are cardiac stimulants. When caffeine appears to have different effects depending on the source, it is due primarily to varying concentrations of other stimulants and absorption rates of the mixture.
