Our Answer to #CoffeeTok 

Spend a few hours (or even a few minutes) on TikTok, and you’ll witness our society’s true love: caffeine. From the viral whipped coffee tutorials to aesthetically-pleasing morning routine mini vlogs featuring perfectly-frothed lattes, it’s evident that we can’t get enough of the stuff.

For many, coffee is a simple pleasure that makes waking up more enjoyable. For others, it's a gateway to caffeine-induced anxiety and jitters. Whether you’re the former, the latter, or hover somewhere in the middle, we at DOTE believe you should have options for how you wish to power up. That’s why we created DOTE Focus and DOTE Power, our two supplements featuring caffeine. Both are meticulously calibrated to provide enhanced productivity and cognition without the negative side effects. 

But before we outline all the benefits of our superior formulations, let’s first discuss how caffeine affects the body, and why, for some, a coffee alternative may be the preferred option. 


How Caffeine Affects the Body 

Caffeine is a stimulant to the central nervous system. It prevents adenosine, the neurochemical responsible for making you sleepy, from doing its job. Caffeine also fires up the adrenal glands, the two small glands above the kidney that produce hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol. This initiates the body’s “fight or flight” response. 

According to experts, how we respond to caffeine depends on our genetics. The CYP1A2 gene, also known as the “caffeine gene,”  determines how quickly or slowly we metabolize coffee. 

Caffeine has been associated with many positive side effects, such as improvement in memory and mood, and lowered risk of cancer (thanks to all the antioxidants). Research has also connected the plant-derived stimulant to relief from headaches and perhaps a reduced risk of other major medical issues such as strokes, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer’s.
