Are you tired of feeling jittery, anxious, and restless after downing your third cup of coffee?

Enter paraxanthine - the "magical little molecule" that promises to take your energy and focus to the next level without any of the negative effects of caffeine.

Paraxanthine is like caffeine's cool, collected cousin who shows up to the party and steals the show. It's a natural metabolite of caffeine scientifically engineered to enhance your cognitive function and athletic performance without the pesky side effects of consuming too much caffeine.

And trust us, I'm not exaggerating when I say that paraxanthine is in a league of its own. My friend Shawn Wells, aka "The World's Greatest Formulator," introduced me to this game-changing ingredient, and I've been singing its praises ever since.

Today, I invited Shawn back to talk about his new Update energy drink featuring paraxanthine. Shawn is joined by the CEO and his co-founder of Update, Daniel Solomons, who spent more than three years working with partners to develop the groundbreaking formula.

Shawn Wells, MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN is a leading nutritional biochemist and expert on health optimization. Now known as the Ingredientologist (the scientist of ingredients), he has formulated over 1,000 supplements, food, beverages, and cosmeceuticals and patented 25 novel ingredients. Formerly a Chief Clinical Dietitian with over a decade of clinical experience, Shawn has counseled thousands of people on natural health solutions such as keto, paleo, fasting, and supplements. He has also personally overcome various health issues, including Epstein-Barr Virus, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, depression, insomnia, obesity, and a pituitary tumor.
