We all have those times when we lose focus or run low on energy—typical snacks don’t deliver the nutritional benefits we want. Luckily, when we need a pick-me-up, Energy Bites™ is a satisfying snack made with wholesome ingredients and offers a functional energy boost for mental alertness and cognitive performance.
Energy Bites is made with plant-based, vegan ingredients that are soy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO. It’s a perfectly portioned, 110-calorie snack bar that blends nourishing foods like peanuts, cassava flour, and rolled oats with premium chocolate chips, coconut sugar, and a hint of sea salt for a delectable and satisfying snack option.
Energy Bites goes beyond basic snacking with functional ingredients to support energy and mental focus.
Caffeine from green tea: Each snack-sized bar provides 65 milligrams of naturally sourced caffeine from green tea for a light lift in alertness and focus. For comparison, this is more caffeine than a typical cup of black tea, but less than an average cup of coffee.
L-theanine: This naturally occurring, non-protein amino acid is found in tea and mushrooms. Alone, L-theanine is known for its calming benefits, but when combined with caffeine, it’s shown to improve cognitive performance (1, 2).
CognatiQ® coffee fruit extract*: CognatiQ is a patented, clinically studied ingredient made with coffee berries from Arabica coffee. In clinical studies, this polyphenol-rich whole coffee fruit extract promoted an increase in alertness and a reduction in mental fatigue, delivering natural support for cognitive performance (3-5). Energy Bites supplies the same amount of CognatiQ that demonstrated functional benefits in clinical studies (3).
CognatiQ coffee fruit extract is sourced with sustainability in mind. The coffee fruit is normally wasted in typical coffee processing because the focus is only on the coffee beans inside. CognatiQ captures the unique benefits of coffee fruit that would otherwise go to waste to support better brain performance and sustainability at the same time.
Energy Bites is an ideal snack option when you’re looking for something that not only tastes delightful, but also provides a light energy boost. Because it contains caffeine, it may be better suited for children ages 12 and up. Additionally, if you are pregnant or nursing or have a health condition, talk with your doctor if you have any questions about consuming foods or beverages with caffeine.
Energy Bites is approved for Cleanse Days and counts as three credits when using the Cleanse Day Tracker. The satisfyingly sweet flavor and soft, chewy texture make this snack a delicious option while adding functional ingredients for cognitive performance that is perfect for Cleanse Days and every day.

What is CognatiQ coffee fruit extract?
CognatiQ coffee fruit extract is a patented ingredient made from sustainably sourced Arabica coffee fruit. It contains a unique profile of polyphenols from coffee fruit and its benefits for cognitive function are separate from the energizing effects of caffeine. It’s a science-backed, natural ingredient that has been shown in clinical studies to support cognitive performance by promoting increased alertness and decreased mental fatigue.
When is the best time to enjoy Energy Bites?
Energy Bites are a great choice any time you feel like you need an energy boost or could use more focus or mental alertness. Because Energy Bites contain caffeine from green tea, it’s best to enjoy them earlier in the day, especially if you are sensitive to caffeine.
How much caffeine is in Energy Bites?
One serving of Energy Bites provides 65 mg of naturally sourced caffeine from green tea. For comparison, Energy Bites have a bit more caffeine than a typical cup of black tea, but less than an average cup of coffee.
Can I combine Energy Bites with other brain-boosting products like Nootropic Elixir™?
Nootropic Elixir fuels on-demand cognitive performance and long-term brain health through ingredients like phosphatidylserine, amla, and purslane, along with 80 mg of naturally sourced caffeine from green tea. Energy Bites also contain caffeine, but the other functional ingredients for cognitive performance are different between these two products.
Using both products together would provide more ingredients that benefit cognitive performance, but those who are sensitive to caffeine should be mindful of how much caffeine they are consuming throughout the day. Combined, Energy Bites and Nootropic Elixir provide 145 mg of caffeine, which is similar to the amount of caffeine in a 12-ounce mug of coffee.
Can I combine Energy Bites with other energizing products like E+™ or BĒA™?
For healthy adults, the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee suggests that consuming up to 400 mg of caffeine a day can be part of a healthy diet. This is the amount of caffeine that is present in about three to five cups of coffee. However, some people are more sensitive to the effects of caffeine than others and it’s important to consider how caffeine affects you when considering different caffeinated options. See this article for detailed information on how much caffeine is in Isagenix products.
