Why Nootropics?

 Who can imagine a morning without a cup of coffee?  In fact, at least 64% of Americans drink a cup of coffee every day. There’s just something about that slightly bitter, rich flavor that makes mornings brighter, snaps you awake, and gets you ready to face the day. Unfortunately, sometimes coffee doesn’t do the trick and we’re left chasing cup after cup trying to fight that morning fog. But what’s better than coffee? The answer is simple: super-powered adaptogens and coffee, more specifically Nootropic Coffee.

So... what are Nootropics anyways?

Nootropics are adaptogenic supplements that help your brain work better by increasing cognition and focus. Nicknamed “smart drugs,” nootropics enhance memory, motivation, and creativity.  They have been around for years and can be naturally found in a variety of things such as mushrooms 🍄 and green tea 🍵.

They can be added to a range of foods to improve their benefits, for example, coffee. When added with coffee, nootropics are able to reduce the anxiety and “jitters” you get from drinking caffeine, enhance some of the caffeine benefits, and increase memory and focus. 

Taya’s Focus Blend incorporates naturally processed L-Theanine and Lion’s Mane Mushroom to create the perfect nootropic coffee concentrate to start your morning right. Simply add water or any other liquid of your choice to create a rich coffee to boost your mind and get you prepared for the day.  So, are you interested in the future of coffee? Do you want to learn more about Taya? Are you still confused about what nootropics are? Read on to learn more about the benefits of Nootropics and our Focus Blend.


Lions Mane Mushroom 🍄

We love our mushrooms. Especially those with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunostimulant properties like Lion’s Mane. The bioactive substances contained within Lion’s Mane have been found to largely benefit your brain in addition to your heart and gut. 

A Long Lasting Brain: Lion’s Mane is composed of compounds called hericenones and erinacines which contribute to the neuroprotective properties of this nootropic. These compounds induce the creation of NGF(nerve growth factor) and BDNF(brain-derived neurotrophic factor), which helps your brain create new cells and strengthen existing ones.

Neurotrophic factors like these not only protect your brain from memory loss and dementia, but instead promote mental function, including learning and memory. Additionally, Lion’s Mane boosts central nervous system regeneration, reduce inflammation in the digestive track, improve blood sugar control, and contribute to heart health. 

Who knew your next cup of coffee would be so healthy?

Jitterless Coffee

Meet L-Theanine + Caffeine... the perfect duo 💞.

We all know the jittery, anxious, and sometimes heart-pounding feeling you get with your cup of coffee. And then even worse: the dreaded midday crash. On its own, caffeine can induce anxiety, increase your blood pressure and give you a feeling of restlessness. But, not when combined with L-theanine! This natural nootropic works against the negative side-effects of caffeine when consumed on its own, and lets you enjoy the benefits.
