When do I Caffeine?

When do I Caffeine?

We get this question all the time: When is the best time to caffeinate?

‘A day in the life’ is like a street race.

Don’t hit the Go Button too early or you’ll lose. Getting boosted too early is like hitting the nitrous too soon in the quarter mile.

The best time to consume caffeine is also personal. We’re all different. That’s why Punch’d Energy is different.

Here’s your Go Button:

  1. Get Punch’d.

  2. Take note of your daily schedule: Start/Finish times.

  3. Consider your body clock / circadian rhythm. How’s your sleep cycle?

  4. Consider your entire energy system. How’s your metabolism? Caffeine Sensitivity?

  5. You have the power to caffeinate precisely with the right amount every time. Less caffeine over extended periods of time is your personalized cheat code.

*Real life example – Wake @ 7am, Sleep by 11pm. Regular workday, workout midday. Punch’d Gummy intervals:

  • 10am : 3 Gummies

  • Noon : 5 Gummies (more as pre-workout)

  • 2pm : 3 Gummies

  • 4pm : 3 Gummies

  • 6pm : 2 Gummies (taper off end of the day)

Easy. No mess, no fuss, no loss of productivity hunting for drinks. Steady state energy that you can lean on all day.


What is Steady-State Caffeine?

This means that caffeine concentration in the body remains constant over time. You're actually balancing caffeine metabolism and excretion. This means it’s not fluctuating wildly and it’s kept level by adding lower doses at regular intervals. The gummy stacking example previously presented illustrates this. The goal is to prevent caffeine fatigue and eliminate the yo-yo effects on the body.

Caffeine Fatigue & Caffeine Tolerance.

Caffeine fatigue in this instance is being used differently than caffeine tolerance. Caffeine tolerance is typically associated with people that continually add larger and larger doses of caffeine to achieve the same level of alertness and energy.

You don’t have to do this with Punch’d. You can:

  • Limit and control your daily caffeine intake. Too much caffeine creates the opposite effect in the body. Max we would recommend is 400mg/day, 4 Packs of Punch’d or 4 cups of coffee.

  • Take caffeine breaks. You can consume less on the weekends or when you’re not exerting energy which will help alter your bodies dependency on caffeine. Lower doses of pure green coffee caffeine in Punch’d help facilitate these breaks better than other products.

  • Drink more water. Caffeine is also a diuretic, which means it can cause some dehydration. Drinking water with Punch’d is a great one-two punch.

  • Get enough sleep. You can taper off your caffeine easier at the end of the day with Punch’d Energy. Adequate sleep is essential to preventing fatigue and tolerance. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

  • Exercise regularly. Regular exercise can really help boost your energy levels, make your caffeine work for you and reduce overall fatigue.

These are the ways that you help prevent both caffeine fatigue and caffeine tolerance while maintaining consistent and optimal energy levels throughout the day.

Do you know these medical terms? Titrate. Microdose. Steady-State. All relate to how Punch’d delivers caffeine. This method has been proven to be the most effective way to caffeinate, and there aren’t a lot of products on the market that can work like this with accurate & precise caffeine amounts every time.

There is a bit of a stigma placed on “angry caffeinators” but that’s only because they’re running through an up/down spike/crash cycle all day. That’s caffeine fatigue. That’s what slamming an energy drink or pounding coffee can do to you. We can sympathize with this before Punch’d. Always remember, moderation and less is more.

Winning the race in sports is another level where the Punch’d advantage can help. This is a great article on the timing and beneficial advantages of using steady-state caffeine in sports. They also make a case for late-race heroics which fits nicely into Punch’d lore as well. Because you chew your energy, it dissolves into your cheek linings and gets into your energy system faster than drinks. Cyclists, runners, team sports, all can benefit from natural caffeine to help finish strong. Proven studies abound. KEEP PUNCHING!
