Ever hear of ultra running? Ultra runners race distances longer than marathons, or 26.2 miles. The shortest distance for an ultra marathon is about 31 miles.

Recently, we designed a nootropic coffee powder called THE Coffee Boost, an instant coffee combination containing caffeine from Columbian coffee and Dynamine, a powerful cognitive enhancer. Altogether, this PRO Range powerhouse promises sustained energy and improved focus.

To put this to the test, we reached out to our friend Matt, an ultra runner from New Jersey whose routine can't be set back by a lack of energy.

"I need sufficient amounts of energy to do what I do" says Matt. "Something to keep me going and keep me focused. This stuff does the trick for sure."

With 150 mg of caffeine and 75mg of Dynamine per serving, this tool for training has been designed to reduce fatigue and not only improve focus but also your mood.

Whether you're vegan, gluten-free, or just don't like whey protein, plant-based protein products will suit your needs. For Matt, his interest in plant protein came from the unsettling effects that come with whey products.

"With plant protein, I don't get an upset stomach" says Matt. "This bar has a solid amount of protein and is great for when I need a quick fix. The mocha flavor is awesome too."

Our Vegan Protein Bar comes complete with 15g of protein derived from pea and brown rice protein and it's packed with enough fiber to promote healthy digestion. Shop this essential on-the-go bar below.
