While all nootropic coffees aim to boost cognitive function, the specific advantages can differ significantly based on the particular nootropics used in the blend. Some nootropics even go beyond cognitive benefits, offering support for the whole body.
We can’t speak on every nootropic coffee blend available, but we can speak on our own—IQJOE—to show you the potential of this dynamic duo.
IQJOE is an instant coffee that combines the robust flavors and energizing properties of Brazilian coffee (offering 200 mg natural caffeine per packet) with nootropics including Magtein® (magnesium L-threonate) and an 8X-concentrated lion’s mane mushroom extract.
Let’s take a look at some of the potential benefits of this combination, broken down by the individual components.
- Increased Alertness, Concentration, and Energy: The caffeine in Brazilian coffee is a central nervous system stimulant that can help fight fatigue, enhance mental clarity, and keep you alert and focused.[*]
- Improved Mood: Caffeine has been shown to influence the release of dopamine, the “feel-good” neurotransmitter, which can lead to improved mood and a sense of pleasure.[*]
- Improved Brain Health: Some research suggests that consuming caffeine reduces the risk of developing neurological conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.[*][*]
- Enhanced Athletic Performance: Coffee is often used by athletes looking to improve their energy levels and physical performance. One review of several studies found that caffeinated coffee improved people’s endurance and decreased their perceived exertion.[*]
- Antioxidant Properties: Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals in the body, potentially reducing the risk of certain diseases, including heart disease and certain cancers.
Magtein® (Magnesium L-Threonate)
- Memory and Learning Enhancement: Magnesium L-threonate is touted for its ability to enhance memory and learning by improving the brain’s synaptic density, particularly in the hippocampus region associated with these cognitive functions.[*]
- Stress Reduction and Sleep Quality: Magnesium has well-documented benefits for reducing stress and improving sleep quality, both of which are essential for cognitive function and overall health.[*]
- Neuroprotective Effects: This form of magnesium may help to protect the brain from the degenerative effects associated with aging and neurological diseases. [*]
- Enhanced Cognition: Lion’s mane mushroom has been studied for its role in stimulating the production of nerve growth factors, which can help support and regenerate nerve cells essential for maintaining cognitive health.[*]
- Protection Against Neurological Conditions: Some research indicates that lion’s mane may protect against neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.[*][*]
- Mental Health Support: Studies have highlighted the anti-inflammatory properties of lion’s mane mushroom extract, which may reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.[*]
- Blood Sugar Support: Various studies have shown that lion’s mane significantly helps reduce blood sugar levels, which may reduce the risk of developing diabetes or a worsening of the condition.[*][*]
- Immune System Enhancement: The polysaccharides, such as beta-glucans, found in lion’s mane, are known for their immune-boosting effects, helping to fortify the body’s defenses.
As you can see, IQJOE is crafted not only to meet your immediate need for mental focus, but also to nourish and protect the brain and body over the long term.
