Caffeine is naturally found in tea, coffee, guarana and cacao plants. Coffee was reportedly discovered by an Ethiopian shepherd who noticed the extra energy the coffee bushes gave his goats after they grazed on them. In the modern day, billions of people consume caffeine when they wake up in the mornings or to get through an afternoon slump.
B vitamins are essential water-soluble vitamins which play a role in many important functions within the body. B vitamins are mostly found in meat and dairy products, but they can also be found in pulses, wholegrains and nutritional yeast. B3 and B12 support normal metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, and reduction of tiredness and fatigue. B12 also contributes to normal psychological function and red blood cell formation.
Ginseng is a root that is native to East Asia. The English ‘ginseng’ comes from the Chinese ‘jîn-sim’, which literally means ‘person, plant root’. This describes its slightly human-like appearance. In China it has traditionally been used as a tonic for people with chronic illnesses. Arabian merchants introduced it to Europe in the middle ages. It thrives in shady mountain forests.
Creatine is a chemical which is produced in the muscles and brain. It was discovered in 1832. Creatine reuses energy in muscles and the brain. The name comes from the Greek for flesh, ‘kreas’, because the compound is found in red meat and seafood. Creatine is absorbed into the bloodstream and goes to big muscle groups, like quadriceps and biceps. This is why it’s so popular in the sports industry, and sometimes amongst Olympic athletes.
Beetroot was first cultivated in the ancient Middle East. The Romans were the first to use the root like we do today. During the 19th Century, women used its bright red pigment (betalain) as a cheek and lip stain. Today, beetroot is a common garden vegetable, and its name comes from bettl, a Celtic word for red. Beetroot contains geosmin, which makes it taste earthy (and contributes to the smell of soil after rain).
Citrulline is an amino acid. Its name comes from citrullus, which is the latin word for watermelon. This is because it was first isolated from a watermelon in 1914 by Japanese researchers. Citrulline forms an essential part of the urea cycle, which removes ammonia from the body. Showing proper citrulline circulation is a way of showing that the intestines function as they should.
Beta-alanine is another amino acid. It helps with the production of carnosine, which features in the endurance of muscles during high-intensity exercise. In our diets, we can receive beta-alanine through meat and poultry, particularly chicken breast. It’s also a component of vitamin 5 (pantothenic acid). It features in the diet of many bodybuilders.
