SYNTHETIC CAFFEINE: If you look at a product label and find the word “caffeine” listed as an ingredient, the product contains synthetic caffeine. Synthetic caffeine is 100% man made - it was developed in laboratories and is manufactured in chemical factories. It is the cheapest and most commonly used form of caffeine additive. The processes, chemicals, and compounds used may vary between chemical companies, but they are all disturbing.

The resulting synthetic caffeine molecule is absorbed very rapidly through the digestive system. This means a quicker spike, and of course, a quicker crash. You will find synthetic caffeine in most if not all soft caffeinated drinks, energy drinks, energy shots, caffeine powders, caffeine pills, and in some pain medications. It is also used as an additive to boost the caffeine levels of certain prepared coffees and teas. Synthetic caffeine provides an immediate jolt to the central nervous system that is typically followed by a depressed phase involving exhaustion, nervousness, irritability, fatigue, and often headaches.
