What are Nootropics?
Although commonly associated with mental capabilities, Nootropics have also been used by athletes to better increase focus, alertness, reaction time, endurance, and power output instead of standard caffeine for sports. Link
Nootropics are already used worldwide by CEOs, Athletes, and Top Professionals as a means to safely and effectively increase brain power to excel further in their line of duty. This is especially true for the tech-entrepreneurs and billionaires of the land of technology: Silicon Valley. Link
Although Nootropics are commonly associated with chemical-based supplements (Piracetam, Phenibut, Adrafinil, etc), we at Flash only use high quality and safe herbal-based Nootropics that are proven by science to help you be productive. So when you #DrinkFlash, you know you are getting the best quality ingredients to give you the necessities needed to achieve more. You can find our list of Nootropics below.
Our Nootropic energy shots help give you the Nootropic benefits for you to excel, as well as ‘clean energy’ that is yet to be found in any energy drinks or pre-workouts in Malaysia and Southeast Asia.
What about 'Clean Energy'? What is that?
Imagine a busy hardworking corporate worker named Amir. Amir works from 9-5 and goes to the gym after office hours. After a busy day at work, Amir needs energy for the gym to achieve his dream body. For this Amir drinks a standard energy drink on market. Let’s call this energy drink, BlueCow.
After a few minutes of drinking BlueCow, Amir starts to feel energized and alert. As he proceeds with his workout, his hands suddenly feel jittery from the caffeine. Unfortunately, nothing in BlueCow counteracts the side effects of caffeine. He gets some energy from the BlueCow, but now he has trouble focusing. Amir is now experiencing what is commonly known as a ‘Sugar Rush’.
After a few hours, night time falls. The Sugar Rush starts to wear off. Amir is now feeling very tired and lethargic. This is because Amir is experiencing a ‘Sugar Crash’. Although very tired from the crash, Amir cannot sleep because of the caffeine. BlueCow has too much sugar and nothing to counteract caffeine. As a result, Amir is left with a restless night, thanks to BlueCow.
Clean energy does the opposite. The clean energy from our shots feel more subtle than the energy from standard energy drinks. This does not mean it is weaker, clean energy is actually better and more effective to help you be productive.
Our Nootropic power ingredients gives you a smooth wave of energy, mental stamina, alertness and focus. Our shots do not use sugar to give you energy. Our shots use L-Theanine, a compound found in green tea, that counteracts caffeine’s jitteriness, crashes, and sleep problems.
The clean energy as well as the Nootropic benefits from our energy shots are why we believe we are in a higher league of energy supplementation versus standard energy drinks.
This is why we strive for us Malaysians to make the better change! This is why we want Malaysia to #DrinkFlash!
