Caffeine and L-theanine: the Good, the Bad and the Myths

Hi y’all!

We just published an article on the myths surrounding coffee, caffeine and L-theanine. It seems dehydration, constipation, insomnia, hypertension, and unwelcome weight loss are commonly associated with coffee and caffeine… Not the best feats :sweat_smile:

But how much of that is actually true? What are your experiences with coffee, caffeine and L-theanine?

We looked into it, too:

Let us know what you think!


How and how strong one reacts to caffeine depends on one’s caffeine sensitivity - which is very different between individuals. There are people who can ingest several hundred mgs of caffeine without noticing anything, and those that can’t even tolerate a few miligrams. If you add caffeine to your products only the first group is addressed; with a completely caffeine free product range everybody could have every product/flavour.

Hi Marba! indeed, the sensitivity depends on the person. What you propose is very interesting! We already shared it with our team and we’ll see in the future if there is an outcome :blush:

I hope there won’t be any change to the coffee plenny shake - hands down it is the best meal replacement I have tried and caffeine is just one of the additional perks.
