Why doesn't 5-hour Energy have theanine?


TruBrain has it. Matcha has it. Why not 5 Hour Energy?


What does this have to do with Soylent?


That’s why it’s in the Cognition section. All nootropics are discussed here.



Why should it have theanine? I am genuinely curious.


Theanine seems like it would counteract the negative effects of the caffeine, so I agree, it’s weird that 5 hour energy doesn’t have any in it.


Technically it would give you more ‘focus’ and as we know remove the jitters. But perhaps the mass public may think ‘it is not working’ if they don’t really feel a physical push/jolt. First time I took it, it relaxed me too much.
