Why Naka Focus?

Naka Focus works just like a traditional energy drink. But it has none of the nasties like preservatives or ugly additives. Simply put, it's a healthier and more natural energy drink. To learn more about the ingredients, just scroll down.

How does it work?

The key ingredient in Naka Focus is green tea. The same tea Shaolin monks drink every day. But it also has guarana and ginseng which give you a longer, more steady energy boost without the jitters. And the all natural caffeine won't make you crash like you do from drinks with artificial caffeine.

Who is it for?

Naka Focus is great for anyone who is looking for a little bit of extra focus.

 

A (very) brief history of green tea.

 

There's no doubt that green tea originates from Asia. It's said that tea leaves were consumed in China more than 3000 years ago. For centuries all tea was green tea. The leaves did not undergo the oxidation process of modern tea leaves, so tea was in its most natural form. It was also initially chewed or eaten recreationally.

Over time the use of tea leaves expanded when people started to use tea leaves in cooking and adding them to boiled water for flavor. The popularity of green tea soon changed it from a luxury item into a drink consumed by everyone, and tea drinking became a social convention all over China. Tea ceremonies took shape and tea drinking became an integral part of social life.

Tea use most likely revolved around the medicinal and invigorating properties of the leaves. As The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzō (1906) states:

"The tea-plant, a native of southern China, was known from very early times to Chinese botany and medicine. It was highly prized for possessing the virtues of relieving fatigue, delighting the soul, strengthening the will, and repairing the eyesight. The Taoists claimed it as an important ingredient of the elixir of immortality."

Production of green tea soon flourished and new production techniques and styles of tea were introduced. Dry heating of the tea to stop it from oxidation was introduced in the 16th century and remains to this day as the primary technique used to make green tea.

 

 

According to Chinese legend, tea was discovered by Shennong the herbalist. He was boiling water when leaves from a nearby tea plant blew in the cauldron. He tasted the resulting brew, and the beverage of tea was born. Regardless of the facts or legends, green tea went on to change the world.

Our ingredients.

 

What's in a bottle?

When choosing our ingredients we made sure to find good ones that both give you energy and taste good.

We don't use any preservatives or ugly additives and Naka Focus is also vegan.

Instead of regular sugar we have used a minimal amount of stevia to dampen the pretty bitter taste of green tea. Stevia is naturally sweet and doesn't contain any calories or sugar. Scientists believe the super sweet taste was developed by the plant as a defence mechanism. Pure stevia is never used as a sweetener, instead steviol glycoside is extracted from the plant.

Ingredients:

Spring water, green tea extract, ginseng extract, guarana extract, vitamins (B5, B9, B12, C), sweetener (steviol glycoside), caffeine, fruit sugar, acidity regulator (malic acid), natural flavors, natural coloring (chlorophyllin).
