You weren’t born in the 15th century, so why would you start your day with a ritual that was? Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, so much so that 64% of Americans drink at least one cup of coffee daily. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, the average dose in a day is just over 3 cups. Despite the popularity of coffee, there are other alternatives to boost energy and increase focus without the negative side effects.

Nootropics are supplements engineered to harness energy throughout your day. They’re formulated to improve mood, memory, cognitive function, increase focus and energy levels. However, not all nootropic formulas work the same way, which is why it is important to find a brand that regards customer satisfaction to the highest level. 

Here are 7 great reasons to nix your caffeine consumption habits and choose OptiMind instead:

1. Coffee Breath & Teeth Stains

Drinking coffee causes bad breath but that’s not all. Even after teeth-bleaching, coffee stains are more likely to return faster than tobacco stains! Caffeine dries out the saliva in your mouth, which is used to break down food particles. The strong, odorous molecules get in the crevices of your mouth, where they stink up the place and break down tooth enamel. The stains from dark coffee set in and cause deep, yellow stains.

  

Some smart pills have an equal amount of caffeine as a single serving of coffee. That’s the same kick, but these energy supplements don’t leave behind the same negative effects of coffee that are so off-putting. OptiMind contains the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, plus carefully-formulated nutrients to keep you performing beyond everyone elses' 2PM caffeine crash.

2. The Myth of Weight Loss & Coffee

We have all heard claims that coffee may help you lose weight. This is true as coffee is a stimulant, but only if you prefer your java plain. A cup of black coffee — without cream or sugar — contains about 2 calories. However, only about 35% of people drink their coffee black. If you use half-and-half, that’s an additional 20 calories per cup. Plus, sugar has another 48 calories per teaspoon. Heavy cream adds over 50 calories alone! The calories in coffee can stack up quick. In fact, Starbucks coffee drinks can range up to several hundred calories. The truth is that you may stimulate your metabolism by drinking this stuff, but you may only reap weight loss benefits by abstaining from the calorie load that comes from most coffee drinks. Where’s the fun in that?

Our nootropics are 100% all nutrients with no additives or flavors, which means zero calories!

Coffee habits add up over time: the average person spends under $1,500 on coffee per year.

3. Coffee Is an Expensive Habit

The average brewed cup of coffee is about $1.38 and, again, the average person drinks about 3 cups per day, every day. It’s okay if your second cup of coffee may have just worn off since we have yearly totals worked out for you: That’s a little under $1,500/year on coffee. It doesn’t even come close to the amount spent by those who get their coffee from gourmet coffee shops (avg. $2.45 per espresso drink!).

OptiMind, by comparison, is a fraction of the yearly cost of coffee for a full year supply of supplements. That means continual focus and energy without the giant hole in your pocket or feeling depleted.

Coffee rids your body of vitamins that energize you over time.

4. Beat Caffeine Crash

Caffeine intake may result in a wide array of side effects. Coffee induces a flush of neurotransmitters such as adrenaline and dopamine, which spikes your energy and boosts your mood. However, it leaves those neurotransmitters depleted as soon as the flush wears off. Coffee doesn’t have the brain vitamins to replenish the natural sources to boot.

Nootropics are formulated to combat the depletion of neurotransmitters, with added brain food, like Tyrosine and Taurine. Instead of the coffee crash, Nootropic users return to their regular state of energy. That is a significantly smaller tax on your body's overall performance.

Caffeine blocks Vitamin D absorption.

5. Vitamin D Deficiency

Over 3/4 of Americans have a Vitamin D deficiency. This could be due to not spending enough time in the sun, the lack of Vitamin D in most foods, and it could also be from drinking too much coffee.

Caffeine blocks the absorption of Vitamin D and does not contain the nutrients required to help you replenish. This may lead to a wide range of health issues.

Fortunately, OptiMind is packed with Vitamin D for brain food. This helps to encourage more absorption of nutrients by more exposure, despite the presence of caffeine. OptiMind, by comparison, is THE optimal, energy-boosting, brain vitamin.

The acidity found in coffee beans may take a toll on your digestive health.

6. Acidity, Coffee and Digestion

Coffee might make your breath smell bad and your teeth yellow and it doesn’t just stop there. Coffee encourages the production of stomach acid and relaxes the lower esophagus. This means that your throat opens up and allows over-produced acid in, creating heartburn and acid reflux. Once the acid is produced, like neurotransmitters, it becomes depleted. This makes digesting meals harder and could lead to digestive problems.

This effect further affects your dental health too as saliva reserves become depleted due to coffee consumption, and are no longer present to help breakdown acid reflux in your mouth. This is a vicious losing cycle for your body.

Although caffeine extract is used in the OptiMind formula, stomach acid is produced from the acidity of the coffee bean, not caffeine itself. Nootropics don’t use coffee, and they don’t produce excess stomach acid. This is a fantastic resource for those with sensitive digestive systems that are interested in improving focus and energy and are often deterred by the limitations of coffee.

Not as pure as it seems: coffee manufacturing is more complex than what you see on advertisements.

7. Chemical Side Effects of Coffee

Acrylamide, a known carcinogen, is a chemical produced in the coffee-roasting process. This  means that heavy consumption of coffee may be linked to various serious health issues. Drinking non-organic coffee can be a major source of pesticide consumption, which may also result in various serious health complications.

It’s always better to be safe than sorry: therefore find an energy boost from a better source. Caffeine in OptiMind is not derived from roasted coffee beans and is therefore free of any acrylamide or pesticides.

Coffee is a centuries-old source of energy that is highly-romanticised for its various apparent benefits. Rightfully so too, as many of the beneficial ingredients in OptiMind would not have been easily discovered without harnessing caffeine. However, the downsides far outweigh the benefits of this substance in comparison to new and improved sources of energy and cognition. It is time for coffee to give way for the smarter choice: OptiMind. So you’ve made it this far, when are you going to try the smart pill of the future for yourself?
