most effectively & efficiently
We drink coffee to stay awake and be more productive. However, it isn’t the magic bullet to fatigue. Actually, caffeine taken at wrong time could be a cause of fatigue, and thus physicians recommend us to cut caffeine in the late afternoon.

According to Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine*, a caffeine intake 6 hours before bed reduces sleep efficiency by 1 hour. Also, average half life of caffeine is 5 hours**, meaning half of caffeine still remains in our body after 5 hours to potentially disrupt our good night sleep, leading to more fatigue next day.

However, it’s hard to cut afternoon caffeine. Actually, we become more and more dependent on caffeine, due to the vicious cycle that afternoon caffeine has created for us.
We wanted to break this cycle.
ATP: Fundamental Solution for Energy
First we need to understand how our body creates energy. Our body breaks a molecule called “Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP),” which stores and transports chemical energy within cells, to generate energy.
Thus, we need to create more ATP, our body’s energy source, to break the vicious cycle.
That’s why we selected Korean Red Ginseng as Supherb’s main ingredient, which has been clinically proven to ramp up ATP production, fundamentally raising our energy level.* A bottle of Supherb contains a recommended daily dosage of Korean Red Ginseng along with two other Korean herbs that maximize its effect.
