We will be taking a good look at Nutribioticals Caffpro, to see if it really is any different from all of the other caffeine stacks out there.
Nutribioticals Caffpro is an energy supplement with just four ingredients, caffeine, L-Theanine, magnesium, and iron. It is suggested that using caffeine and L-Theanine together gives you the benefits of both of them, without the usual unwanted side effects, such as jitters or crash.
Nutribioticals Caffpro offers a combination of caffeine and L-Theanine, which supposedly improves your focus and increases energy levels as well. Its regular use provides improved focus with no crash or jitters. Studies have found that caffeine is a stimulant – it stimulates your central nervous system and makes you feel more alert and attentive. L-Theanine is supposed to promote relaxation without drowsiness. The issue is that how caffeine affects your central nervous system varies greatly from one person to another. Similarly, there is insufficient scientific evidence suggesting that an increased intake of caffeine will lead to a substantial increase in energy.
Many of us are deficient in magnesium, and it is present here in a good daily dose. Magnesium has been associated with a protective effect against depression, although it is preferable to supplement with magnesium citrate rather than carbonate as magnesium citrate is more readily absorbed.
Caffpro is manufactured by Nutribioticals, a UK company based in Cardiff, but that is about all we could find out about the company. At the time of writing their official website was under construction, but it isn’t clear how long that has been the case.
People are likely to react differently to Caffpro, due to the differences in the way people metabolize caffeine. Side effects may include headache, insomnia, irritability, diarrhoea, nausea, increased heart rate and breathing, and high blood pressure.
Iron can cause side effects such as stomach upset and pain, constipation or diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Taking iron supplements with food seems to reduce some of these side effects, but food can also reduce how well the body can absorb iron so it should be taken on an empty stomach if possible.
Nutribioticals Caffpro costs £14.99 from Amazon UK containing 60 servings (30-day supply).
Nutribioticals Caffpro provides a combination of L-Theanine and caffeine to help you feel alert but relaxed. It claims to be better than coffee as it contains fewer calories, won’t stain your teeth, and gives fewer jitters. They also claim it is cheaper than coffee, but that is not really true unless you drink all of your coffee out of the house.
Caffpro is supposed to give you more focus and energy and make you less tired. However, experts believe that caffeine only masks the feeling of tiredness and does nothing to actually increase energy production. Once the effects wear off, you experience an energy crash that makes you feel worse. There are many other side effects associated with caffeine intake, and that is why L-Theanine has been included in the blend, which is supposed to counteract those negative effects. Unfortunately, studies do not support the use of L-Theanine to calm your nerves and reduce the side effects of caffeine.
Caffpro is cheaper than other, very similar products, however it still may be better and a lot cheaper to just drink coffee, especially as you would need to avoid other caffeine sources whilst taking this supplement.
Overall, we do not recommend Nutribioticals Caffpro to our readers.

Nutribioticals Caffpro contains 4 ingredients; caffeine, L-Theanine, magnesium, and iron. It is an energy supplement that aims to give you the necessary focus for work, gym, sports, and whenever you’re on the go. It claims to do this without the usual symptoms of jitters and crash. Nutribioticals claim that it gives more energy than any other Smart Caffeine supplement, due to the inclusion of iron, magnesium, and L-Theanine, alongside the caffeine. However, there are other supplements that also have the same ingredients.
This combination of caffeine and L-Theanine has been described as the number one cognitive performance stack, and appears in a lot of other products also available on the market.
Caffeine is an incredibly popular stimulant. It is safe and well tolerated by most people, and ideal for providing a quick energy boost. The downside is that this energy boost is not effective as a cognitive enhancer and as we all know, drinking coffee can leave you feeling strung out, wired, and jittery.
This is where L-Theanine comes in. L-Theanine is an amino acid found naturally in the tea plant and nothing else, so it is not generally taken in diet, unless you drink tea in high quantities. It is L-Theanine that causes the relaxing but non-sedative effect of tea.
It is suggested that L-Theanine and caffeine work well together because the L-Theanine helps to smooth the effects of the caffeine, without losing that energy and motivation that caffeine can cause. It is important to remember that all tea does contain caffeine and L-Theanine so regular tea drinkers may already experience this energising yet relaxing effect, and at a much cheaper price and without the side effects! L-Theanine is present here in a relatively high dose of 300mg per serving which is most likely not needed, and a dosage of 200mg would be plenty with the same amounts of caffeine, in order for them to have their synergistic effects.
However, the effects will only be temporary after taking the supplement and will not have a long-lasting effect. It is probably best to be used occasionally as an energy and focus booster, rather than as an everyday supplement, especially as you are likely to build up a tolerance to it over time.
Those who are deficient in iron can experience more feelings of tiredness, and so supplementing can help. However, there can be side effects associated with taking iron and it shouldn’t be taken at the same time as coffee and tea, therefore it is likely that caffeine may inhibit the absorption of iron. This supplement would probably be better without the iron.
Nutribioticals Caffpro claims to provide energy and focus, whilst reducing stress and tiredness. They claim it gives clear focus and more energy than any other Smart Caffeine supplement.
We think that is likely that a consumer may experience a slight boost in energy levels and focus for a short time after taking a serving of 2 capsules. However, the effects will be temporary, and if you are already a regular coffee drinker then you may not notice much of an effect. Plus, taking this supplement will require you to avoid caffeine from other sources so you won’t get to enjoy your cup of tea or coffee.
In addition, although caffeine is well known as a stimulant, it is equally well known that as you become accustomed to using, you do build up a tolerance to the effects.
It contains L-Theanine that is supposed to reduce stress and relax your mind, but combining it with caffeine does not make much sense because you may be taking caffeine to stay alert. L-Theanine may help minimize the negative effects of caffeine, but you should not expect any significant improvement in alertness or concentration.
Caffpro may contain more Theanine than the majority of other similar products, as well as containing iron and magnesium. However, that does not mean that it will provide more energy than any other supplement of its kind, as is claimed.
There could be some side effects from the caffeine in those sensitive to it.
Iron can cause side effects such as:
Not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. Always consult your GP before taking nutritional supplements, especially if you are taking medication, have an existing medical condition or are due to undergo surgery. Not recommended for children, pregnant or lactating women. Do not take more than 200mg caffeine per serving, up to a maximum of 400mg per day from ALL caffeine sources, including food supplements, food and drinks.
There are lots of reviews on Amazon, the vast majority of which are positive. However, according to the website Fakespot, these reviews are of low quality and a lot of them may be fake. There is also a concern from the people that have reviewed the product and given it a low rating that most of the highly positive reviews are not genuine either.
An example of a positive review includes:
I’ve been looking for something like this all my life. I am so focused on CAFFPRO with none of the side effects you get from say coffee…I’m talking about those horrible jitters. With CAFFPRO there are NO JITTERS. NO COME DOWN. I’ve been taking CAFFPRO for a week now and will never stop. Thanks Nutribioticals
According to the information on Amazon, Nutribioticals do offer a full money-back guarantee if you are unhappy with the product. However, it is difficult to know how easy this will be to claim.
