As part of our commitment to making products that maximize human potential, we put ourselves to the test. When our team is developing our products, we analyze scientific data to pick ingredients that are safe, effective and taste amazing. We’ve taken this commitment to the next level by testing C4 Smart Energy in a clinical trial.
That’s right, we put our Super Brain formula to the test in a scientific study.
Check out the details of the study below.>
The study design was a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled crossover trial. The study subjects involved a large number of male and female gamers who have had energy drinks before.
Let’s breakdown what these things mean:
- A randomized design means that subjects in the study are randomly grouped into the experimental (C4 Smart Energy) group or the control group. An advantage of this is that a good randomization can wash out any population bias.
- A double-blind design means that both the subjects in the study and the researchers are unaware of who is in the experimental group and who is in the control group. An advantage of this is that a double-blind design can minimize participant and researcher bias.
- A placebo-controlled design involves subjects in the control group being given a placebo that is meant to blind them from knowing whether they’re receiving the experimental treatment (C4 Smart Energy). An advantage of this is that it minimizes the placebo effect.
- A crossover design means that during the study patients will switch over from one treatment group to another. In this case, that would mean that patients that were in the placebo group would switch over to the Smart Energy group, and vice versa. An advantage of this is that each subject’s response to the placebo and the experimental group can be compared against each other.
- And finally, the study subjects having previous experience drinking energy drinks is beneficial because they’re familiar with the effects of drinking caffeinated energy drinks.
As you can see, the researchers went to great lengths to conduct a well-designed trial to minimize bias and test the effects of Smart Energy.
So, what were the results of drinking Smart Energy?
- 47% improvement in complex gaming performance
- 33% improvement in energy levels
- 16% improvement in short-term recall and information processing
- 10% improvement in concentration
- 10% improvement in mental multi-tasking
