What does Aila's Matcha Energy do exactly?
Glad you asked! The ingredients in our Matcha Energy formula create a sustaining, all day energy with no jitters or crash, as well as an optimized focus and overall calmness.
Matcha itself contains L-theanine, which when coupled with caffeine allows for a more calm and focused energy. As a replacement for pre-workout, our formula includes ingredients like beetroot, which help along the travel of oxygen to your muscles, allowing for longer time to fatigue during physical activity (without the itchy feeling that can come with beta-alanine.)
Vitamins B6 and B12 assist in brain function and focus, to optimize your workout (or your work day!) to it's fullest and are what also makes this supplement a great replacement for coffee as well.

What's the best way to prepare Aila?
For convenience, we suggest mixing with about 10-12 oz of cold water for a quick pre-workout fix! On those slower mornings, you can also prepare hot with a milk of your choice for more of a latte feel.
Why do I find some specs in my Aila?!
Fear not! Aila is made free from any chemicals or fillers and with all natural ingredients which means although they are grinded very thin, some larger pieces can sneak through in the process! For example, the bee pollen powder is more difficult to dissolve fully in water and can often float a bit in your drink.

Is Aila gluten free, soy free and/or vegan?
Yes, all Aila products are gluten free, soy free and vegan!

What type of activity is Matcha Energy best for?
Glad you asked! Matcha Energy is a great, clean boost before any activity - running, boxing, cycling, strength training. It also makes a great coffee alternative for a sustaining energy and lasting focus throughout your day.
