Theobromine Powder

What is Theobromine Powder

Theobromine Powder is a naturally occurring compound found in cacao plants and tea leaves. Named after the scientific name of cacao trees, Theobroma Cacao, scientists found it had similar stimulation and heart effects to caffeine.

It originated in the tropical rainforests of the Americas in times of the Mayan and Aztec civilizations and was considered a “food of the gods,” “theo” meaning god and “broma” meaning food.

Theobromine is used today in the nootropic community as a popular stimulant alternative to caffeine without the “jittery” side effects.

Theobromine Benefits & Uses

Theobromine Powder has a myriad of different benefits for cognitive performance and overall health & is quite well studied, some of the many benefits of Theobromine include:

Theobromine May Help Brain Function

In a study (RCT), 24 participants were asked to do tasks before and after theobromine intake. After theobromine intake, the subjects showed more interest in the tasks and were calmer. When combined with the effects of caffeine (in cocoa), these positive effects on the brain further improved

Theobromine Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Demonstrated by its effects, studies show Theobromine is an anti-inflammatory. It reduces the levels of inflammatory cytokines such as IFN-y and TNF-a

Theobromine May Help with Weight Loss

Theobromine suppresses appetite, which can lead to weight loss. Through chemical analysis of weight loss products, its components compared with others showed it is a natural substance that reduces hunger

Theobromine Powder studies

One interesting study on Theobromine that is noteworthy, is Theobromines  effect on mood. The combination of theobromine and caffeine, methylxanthines found in chocolate, has previously been shown to improve mood and cognition. However, it is unknown whether these molecules act synergistically.

One study done in 2011 combined Theobromine from chocolate with caffeine, the results suggested that theobromine and caffeine could have differential effects on mood and blood pressure. It was tentatively concluded that caffeine may have more CNS-mediated effects on alertness, while theobromine may be acting primarily via peripheral physiological changes.
