enXtra

Award-winning enXtra is a caffeine-free alternative clinically shown to support alertness and help focus.

Natural energy

Why enXtra?

Made from a proprietary extract of Alpinia galanga, a commonly used spice in Asian cooking, enXtra targets a cognitive process known as “Attention Network Function” (ANF), which is the ability of the brain to allocate processing resources to a specific task. The ANF system plays a critical role in mental alertness and the ability to focus on a task.

 

enXtra is unique among caffeine-free energy supplements:

  • Same-day effect that can last up to five hours
  • Supports mental energy without the “crash” phenomenon
  • Can be used in combination with caffeine to provide a complete solution for mental energy
  • DNA-authenticated extract of Alpinia galanga
  • Developed for alertness and focus whatever the application—enXtra is well suited for use in energy drinks, RTDs, bars, snacks, gummies, stick packs and more

Science overview

Energy is a state of mind

Cognitive performance is becoming more targeted as consumers search for solutions to optimize performance at work and play. enXtra offers a unique approach to help consumers stay productive and active by supporting mental energy—the ability to stay alert and focused. Several clinical studies support enXtra’s ability to improve mental alertness:

  • Alertness up to 5 hours
    In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, enXtra significantly increased baseline alertness scores up to five hours compared to several other plant extracts.
  • Mental alertness and sustained attention vs. caffeine
    In another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, the effect of enXtra on mental alertness and sustained attention was compared to caffeine and placebo. Results demonstrated that enXtra supports mental alertness.
  • Focused attention caffeine
    A secondary analysis investigated the effect of enXtra on focused attention compared to caffeine and placebo. Results showed a trend for enXtra to increase focus to a greater extent compared to caffeine and placebo.
  • Mechanism of action
    A molecular docking study of enXtra demonstrated that its phytoconstituents may interact with neurotransmitters such as dopamine and acetylcholinesterase that play a role in alertness and focus.
  • Safety
    In all clinical studies, enXtra has been proven safe with no impact on heart rate, blood pressure, and sleep.
