Viter Energy Mints are breath mints the size of a standard mint. The mints come in multiple flavors with a touch of menthol for a strong kick. They're strong, so if you don't like strong mints then you'll probably not like our mints! They're round and they sit comfortably in your mouth.
Each mint is 900 milligrams by weight and contains 40 milligrams of caffeine. Each tin contains 20 mints. That's almost 10 cups of coffee's worth of caffeine in each tin of mints!
One mint has roughly 1/2 the amount of caffeine as a standard 8 ounce cup of brewed coffee. One mint also contains approximately 1/2 the amount of caffeine as in a standard sized energy drink.
When we started Viter Energy, we wanted to know: How much caffeine do we really need?
We did a lot of research on the optimal amount of caffeine for increased performance.
We made Viter Energy Mints with two things in mind: It had to give people energy & it had to taste good.
This is tough because caffeine is naturally bitter. So, the more caffeine per mint the harder it becomes to make the mint taste good.
So even though everyone has a different tolerance level for caffeine and different taste preferences, we aimed for one mint to have enough caffeine to provide a small amount of energy for the average person while still tasting good to most people.
With these mints, you need less caffeine than you think.
When you're eating a mint, it dissolves in your mouth. The caffeine then gets absorbed into your body via your mouth, and not through your stomach as it does when you consume a caffeinated beverage like coffee or tea.
This absorption is called sublingual, and because of this you'll feel the caffeine from the mints faster than you feel the caffeine from a beverage. Also, you'll find that you won't need as much caffeine as you think you need to feel a boost.
Depending on your caffeine tolerance, most people feel the caffeine from 1-3 mints eaten within an hour.
The holidays are upon us. It’s only October but with the rate this year has gotten to the tail-end, we’ll all be wearing our favorite sweatshirts (forcibly or otherwise) and devouring the holiday away in no time.
The forward-looking you will already be starting to watch that *extra holiday weight* before the holiday even starts.
But one step at a time, right? After all, there’s a few weeks left before the celebrations and holiday parties officially kick in.
If the java lover in you has ever been curious whether caffeine can help curb the appetite, now is the perfect time to find some answers.
The word on the street is that caffeine is one of the best appetite suppressants.
Spoiler alert: researches tell us the jury’s still out on this one.
Have you been drinking coffee for years and starting to feel weird sensations after a cuppa? You’ve got to know something.
If you suddenly find yourself going through unusual post-caffeine effects such as anxiety, headache, faster heartbeat and tremors, you may be experiencing a shift in how your body metabolizes caffeine.
Two words: caffeine sensitivity.
Caffeine sensitivity is not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes, it’s all a matter of our body adapting to caffeine in our system.
However, if all of a sudden you start to feel things that didn’t use to happen after having your caffeine fix, then it’s time to watch that caffeine intake!
What if I tell you that aside from perking you up, caffeine can also help you concentrate and become more productive?
If, during mind-numbing, brain-wracking moments, you want to feel like Popeye going for a whole can of spinach, just reach out for the coffee-maker and you’re likely to feel the same! (For the best java experience, know when’s the best time to drink your coffee here.)
Caffeine can also help you absorb information and remember them more efficiently.
Yep! Our favorite stimulant can boost mental performance in more ways than one. Have a cuppa and you’ll find yourself retaining more information from classes and business meetings, kill it in planning and problem-solving, and finish those day-to-day tasks efficiently.
Without further ado, here are 8 ways caffeine can help us take a step closer to becoming Einstein-genius:
Caffeine is known to bring a great deal of health benefits day in and day out. From helping you get clear, misty-looking skin, carry a sprightly vibe throughout the day, or win the gold in your favorite sport, caffeine just keeps winning the java-lover in you.
But it’s not all rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes, having one too many cups of joe leads to unwanted side effects, turning a regular caffeine hit into a love-hate relationship.
Upset tummy is perhaps one of the *supposedly* negative effects of being too caffeine-happy. Hear a growling tummy or feel a nagging pain in the stomach? Must be your fourth cup of coffee, right?
But is caffeine really to blame?
