At My Supply Co., we've always been anchored by a singular mission:
To weave together the most potent ingredients nature offers, backed by rigorous science, to craft products that work to support your body’s innate intelligence.
Today, we're excited to share a new milestone in our Energy Stack formula: The switch from the beloved arabica coffee bean to the potent nootropic organic matcha.
The neurobiology behind matcha.
The addition of organic matcha isn't about tapping into a trending superfood. It's about the intricate dance of neurochemicals that matcha stimulates:
- L-theanine & Caffeine, A Brain Ballet: Caffeine is a powerful nootropic, a cognitive enhancer, known for increasing alertness. Matcha’s L-theanine acts as a buffer, modulating the release and absorption of caffeine. This synergy ensures you reap the focus-enhancing benefits of caffeine without the overstimulation, paving the way for clarity without jitters.
- The Antioxidant Spectrum: Beyond cognitive function, systemic health is pivotal. Matcha carries a potent punch with 130x the antioxidants of traditional green tea, setting the stage for enhanced cellular protection against oxidative stress.
- The Calm Amidst the Storm: L-theanine reduces stress and anxiety and is a key player in promoting alpha brainwave activity, a state often associated with 'relaxed alertness'. This means you're not just energized, you're centered.
Energy is more than physical.
It's the harmonious rhythm that orchestrates your daily dance with life.
As with all our products, we formulated Energy Stack to include meaningful dosages of each ingredient for their intended purpose, while also respecting the synergies between related ingredients:
- Cordyceps: A nod to traditional Chinese medicine, cordyceps mushrooms are our ace in ensuring sleep rhythms remain unperturbed. Research reveals their ability to reset your circadian rhythm, ensuring caffeine’s energizing effects don’t rob you of restful nights.
- Cinnamon and Peppermint Extract: These aren’t mere garnishes. Cinnamon aids in metabolic processes, while peppermint extract is a digestive soother, enhancing the overall bioavailability and assimilation of our formula.
- Vitamin B3: This isn’t just about energy on a cellular level; it's about optimizing the very pathways that convert our food into fuel. Vitamin B3 helps convert carbs, fat, and protein into ATP/cellular currency.
Did we mention matcha has beauty benefits?
“The reason why matcha has grown in popularity is because of its super antioxidant EGCG (a type of catechin) capabilities,” she says. “The antioxidant capacity of matcha is 137 times more powerful than regularly brewed green tea.”
With such an enhanced antioxidant makeup, matcha can work wonders on both hair and skin health. “Drinking two to three cups of matcha daily is actually the best way to improve your skin and hair, as consuming [its] EGCGs helps your body with the important process of eliminating toxins and chemicals from your body,” says Zenhausern.
Here is how adding Energy Stack to your beauty regimen can promote healthier hair and skin.
Matcha's hair & skin benefits.
Anti-Aging Healthy Aging
Zenhausern raves about matcha’s antioxidant, EGCG — and for good reason.
Green tea is a potent anti-inflammatory, and matcha is no different.
Because of its anti-inflammatory properties—and other beneficial vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C and zinc—consuming matcha can help work from the inside out to calm certain skin ailments such as breakouts, puffiness, and stressed-out skin.
“It is rich in fiber, chlorophyll, and nutrients that are not only beneficial for the internal body but [are] the reason why it is now being used in hair and skin care products,” says Zenhausern.
A cup of matcha can also deliver vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium systemically—into your body, skin, and hair.
Hair Growth & Scalp Care
The anti-inflammatory properties of matcha help keep the scalp calm and collected, while the antioxidant makeup helps give it a boost of added protection and strength.
“Matcha is rich in vitamin E, [which] aids in circulation to the scalp and helps promote hair growth,” says Debra Jaliman, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in New York City.
In addition, vitamin E can nourish, strengthen and protect strands, so that new growth can remain as good as new. “It also helps to control dandruff [and] keeps your scalp healthy,” says Jaliman.
When to Take Energy Stack.
Given its design and intent, we recommend taking Energy Stack during the early phases of your day, around 9 AM and no later than 2 PM. This harnesses the peak of your natural cortisol rhythm, ensuring a synergistic alignment with your body's innate energy cycle, while also ensuring restful sleep remains undisturbed.
We, at My Supply Co., are not just about products. We're about paradigms. We view the body not as a machine, but as a delicate, interconnected ecosystem. Our upgraded Energy Stack is a testament to this philosophy, and we warmly invite you to partake in this journey towards holistic well-being.
Your feedback, as always, is not just welcome, but actively sought. It informs our path forward.
Here’s to a harmonious, energized you.
