Soylent Nutrition, Inc., the makers of Soylent drinks, powder and Soylent Squared, has launched Soylent Stacked, which the Los Angeles-based company is calling the first complete energy drink to fuel the mind and body. Soylent says the new 11-oz. ready-to-drink product contains complete nutrition in the form of plant protein, healthy fats, slow-burning carbs and essential nutrients, but also features a proprietary nootropics “stack,” which the company says can enhance focus, accuracy and the ability to switch between tasks successfully.
“Our customers told us they were frustrated with the empty calories and lack of nutrition in the leading energy drinks,” explains CEO Bryan Crowley. “Soylent Stacked is the first energy drink formulated for both your mind and your body.”
The ancient Greek translation of the word Nootropics is “mind turning.” Soylent says these substances help people “hack” their bodies and enhance their brain function. It also says they are a class of supplements that when used in combination with one another—aka “stacked”—can provide synergistic, positive effects.
“Most nootropic supplements on the market are pills or powder—they do not provide the nutrient density needed to keep you energized both physically and mentally,” said Julie Daoust, VP of product development at Soylent. “With Soylent Stacked, we provide the functional benefits of nootropics combined with the complete nutrition you can expect from all Soylent products.”
The company says Soylent Stacked is formulated with a “stack” of L-theanine and caffeine in a 2:1 ratio providing focused, calm, sustained energy without the jitters, l-tyrosine an amino acid supporting focus, and alpha-GPC a compound that plays a key role in cognition and memory.
At 180 calories and 3g of sugar, each bottle has15g of plant protein to build and repair muscle, and 36 essential nutrients which support a healthy body, according to Soylent.
The company continues to add new products to its complete nutrition portfolio. Soylent Stacked is now available on Soylent.com/stacked.
