Infinergy™ is an ingredient from compound solutions and consists of caffeine and malic acid fused together using an ionic bond. The ingredient is Di-Caffeine Malate, compound solutions have named it Infinergy™, it contains roughly 75% caffeine and 25% malic acid by molecular weight. The malic acid in Infinergy™ works to buffer the salts in caffeine, allowing for easier digestion whilst also replenishing the energy produced by caffeine, which helps to minimise the associated post-caffeine energy ‘crash’. Comparing it to caffeine anhydrous, Infinergy™ is a milder form releasing its energy slower, but you will gain longer-lasting stimulant effects.

Key benefits

Infinergy™ is shown to reduce fatigue, improve concentration and increase performance. It most notably reduces sedation and relaxation by inhibiting the production of Adenosine, the chemical associated with sleep. This stimulant will increase energy, focus, increase muscle power and help to fight fatigue. It’s a fundamental ingredient in all stimulant-based pre-workouts when dosed correctly. The malic acid works to improve your stomach’s digestive functions alongside playing an important role in the Krebs cycle – the intracellular process of energy production.

How much should you use

400mg a day is generally accepted as the upper limit for caffeine consumption. Infinergy™ contains 75% caffeine and 25% malic acid the limit is likely higher. Why does our pre-workout contain 100mg of Infinergy™ then? We use caffeine anhydrous as well for the immediate hit as Infinergy™ is slower releasing. It contains 75% caffeine, therefore it would not be safe or recommended to have a dose of more than 400mg total across both ingredients. 

When should you take it

You guessed it, the two most popular times to consume caffeine and the times recommended are either soon after waking or 15-30 minutes before a workout.

Are there any side effects

Caffeine is generally considered safe for humans. There are however side effects linked to excess consumption of the daily safe limit (400mg). These could be but are not limited to anxiety, restlessness, tremors, irregular heartbeat, and trouble sleeping. Consuming beyond the recommended caffeine intake may also result in headaches, migraines, and also high blood pressure. There are generally no side effects with caffeine when consumed within the limits.
