One of the reasons Punch’d feels and hits so different is because of the caffeine, which is the hero ingredient in any personal energy product. Punch’d uses green, natural caffeine from coffee plants, both Arabica & Robusta combined for a one-two punch like nothing else on the market.
Almost everything else on the market uses synthetic caffeine made in a lab at a factory in China. Most of these labs are “sketchy” at best, hidden in dilapidated industrial parks.
Quick Tip: If it just says “caffeine” on the label, that means it is chemically produced in a lab environment. When the label reads “natural caffeine from green coffee beans” or “green tea caffeine” you know it’s coming from a plant source.
A lot of food scientists will claim natural and synthetic caffeine are identical, but there’s a catch – there’s always a catch, and in this case, there are several.
Natural plant-based caffeine and synthetic caffeine made in the lab are chemically identical, meaning that they have the same molecular structure and produce similar physiological effects in the body.
However, there are some differences in the way natural plant-based caffeine and synthetic caffeine are produced and how they may affect the body. Natural plant-based caffeine is derived from sources such as coffee beans, tea leaves, and cocoa beans, while synthetic caffeine is produced in a laboratory using chemical processes.
Natural caffeine extracted from plant sources may contain other compounds such as polyphenols and antioxidants, which can have additional health benefits. Synthetic caffeine, on the other hand, is typically produced in a highly purified form and may not have these additional compounds.
Additionally, there may be differences in the way natural and synthetic caffeine are metabolized by the body. Some studies have suggested that natural caffeine may be metabolized more slowly than synthetic caffeine, leading to a longer-lasting effect.
Overall, while natural plant-based caffeine and synthetic caffeine are chemically identical, there may be some differences in the way they are produced and how they affect the body, or how they hit.
Another big reason that Punch’d Hits Different is because you chew your caffeine – instead of swallowing it. The fastest and most direct route into your personal energy system is through your cheek linings. When you chew these caffeine gummies they dissolve and become almost instantly bioavailable.
Think of the caffeine staying in your upper body vs. going down through your big breakfast and your lower body. That’s a huge advantage for your energy game.
The third biggest reason that Punch’d Hits Different is that there isn’t a bunch of other hokey finokey ingredients or “energy blends” here. You want just the caffeine, you don’t want a ridiculous amount of B-Vitamins, Taurine, or other weird chemicals that create body shakes and vibrations. The niacin flush and sugar rush only lead to toilet slush. That’s not good.
You want a smooth, manageable, and a consistent amount of caffeine for achieving uniform results. Doctor’s call this “titration”. We call it the power curve or steady state caffeine, and if you get it right you can extend your days instead of ending them early due to caffeine fatigue.
