Our unique energy blend was developed by a sports dietitian and a food scientist to deliver smooth energy that lasts, with a balance of complex carbs, plant-based protein, healthy fat and clean, organic caffeine.
And it’s designed to slow the uptake of energy from caffeine, avoiding the harsh jitters and crash which can come from consuming liquid caffeine alone, but keeping the mental and physical performance benefits we all love from caffeine.
- Smooth, steady energy
- 10g plant protein
- Goes where coffee can’t
- Enhanced mental energy, clarity & focus
- No coffee jitters or crash
- Rich in antioxidants
- Replenish glycogen stores
- Aids in muscle recovery
- Polyphenols to reduce inflammation

The role of caffeine: There are several benefits of caffeine as an energy source, validated over decades of scientific study. Caffeine provides mental energy, clarity and focus. Physical energy for increased muscular work capability (performance). Caffeine aids in metabolizing other fuels such as carbs for replenishing muscle glycogen (replenished during exercise, and helping the body to restore and recover post-exercise). Health benefits of clean caffeine from organic green coffee in our Squares include: polyphenols known to reduce inflammation, regulate blood sugar and blood pressure; antioxidants for healthier soft tissue and muscles down to a cellular level.
The role of complex carbohydrates: Complex carbs pack in more nutrients than simple carbs (our natural complex carbs from seeds and fruits are nutrient-rich). And they digest more slowly, keeping you from feeling hungry longer during exercise.
The role of fat: Fats play two important roles in providing long-lasting energy. Fats are a concentrated source of energy—containing more than twice the potential energy that protein and carbohydrate do; they're metabolized during prolonged exercise to provide the fuel (adenosine triphosphate molecules, or ATP) our muscles need to sustain performance. And, fats extend fueling by burning slowly during endurance activities, sparing glycogen reserves. Stored carbohydrate fuel (muscle and liver glycogen) are used at a slower rate, delaying the onset of fatigue and prolonging performance capabilities.
The role of protein: When muscle glycogen stores fall in the latter stages of endurance activities, protein provides energy and protects our bodies from soft tissue cannibalization (breakdown of lean muscle mass for an energy source, something we all want to prevent as much as possible).
