Focus Bars are a delicious functional food that builds strength and endurance, energy and focus through the combination of three active ingredients; Cocoa Flavonols, L-theanine and caffeine.
L-theanine is an active ingredient found in green tea. Our Focus Bars contain 50mg of Suntheanine L-theanine.
L-theanine promotes relaxation by contributing to a number of changes in the brain:
Boosts levels of GABA and other calming brain chemicals. L-theanine elevates levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alertness, and sleep, as well as appetite, energy, and other cognitive skills. Increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promotes relaxation and can help with sleep.
Lowers levels of 'excitatory' brain chemicals. At the same time it is increasing chemicals that promote feelings of calm, L-theanine also reduces levels of chemicals in the brain that are linked to stress and anxiety. This may also be a way that L-theanine can protect brain cells against stress and age-related damage.
Enhances alpha brain waves. Alpha brain waves are associated with a state of 'wakeful relaxation.' That's the state of mind you experience when meditating, being creative, or letting your mind wander in daydreaming. Alpha waves are also present during REM sleep. L-theanine appears to trigger the release of alpha-waves, which enhances relaxation, focus, and creativity.
L-theanine on its own isn't a stimulant. It will help with clarity and focus to a degree but doesn't provide the raw energy boost that caffeine does. Caffeine as a standalone product helps with productivity, energy and increases reaction time but doesn't unlock focus, attention & clarity. Together they combine their best of attributes to create a truly focused, energetic, productive mind.
50mg of caffeine is about 2/3 of a cup of coffee. The same amount of L-theanine ensures you get the boost from caffeine and at the same time it is complemented by the relaxed focus of the L-theanine. The dose of 50mg of L-theanine and 50mg of caffeine is ideal to ensure that these two compounds support but don’t overwhelm each other. They provide all the energy, awareness and focus you need with none of the jitteriness and anxiety you don’t. Literally the best of both worlds.
The Flavonoids in Go Condition Focus bars are naturally occurring in the Cocoa present in each bar.
These cocoa flavanols increase nitric oxide levels in your body. Nitric oxide is a molecule that supports healthy blood flow and enables the delivery of essential oxygen and nutrients to every organ, muscle and tissue throughout your body. This means that critical parts of your body – including your heart, brain, muscles and even skin – can get the nourishment they need to perform at their best.
Focus bars are small in size at 25g, low in calories (90-110), low in sugar (which are all naturally occurring) but big in punch, giving you the energy and focus you need to get through your day.
The small size allows you to control the energy dose you want. Need more of a boost? Just eat two. The size also ensures that the bars don’t exact a price on your appetite or leave you feeling weighed down. They deliver everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Perfect to kick of your day, tune you in for a test, set you up for a workout, pick you up in the afternoon help you stay alert on the road, or an extra energy boost for the trail. Wherever your spirit moves you, and your mind takes you these bars will help you follow with anticipation, excitement and purpose.

“No way would I take on another adventure without the proprietary blend of flavonoids in Go Condition!“
“For years now, I’ve been on a quest to find the highest quality natural products and have been taking a Quercetin supplement to combat inflammation for a while. In mid 2019, a doctor friend of mine, a researcher, asked me if I had heard of Go Condition. He explained the science behind the formulation and I was intrigued. Quercetin is the foundation of Go Condition, along with bilberries and green tea extract. This powerful combination of flavonoids made an immediate impact on me. The first thing I noticed was that I could train harder but recover slightly faster than normal, even at 57 years old. But the real test came when I made Go Condition my primary supplement for a 2,500 mile adventure beginning from the lowest elevation in Africa, ending at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Not only did I set a number of records, but I also avoided getting sick or having to take any days off while averaging about 150 miles of daily running and cycling for 26 straight days. The most unexpected benefit was the mental clarity I had on most days, despite the stress of the expedition. I have taken on many big challenges in my life but never have I performed at such a high level for so many days."Read more
