Short answer, actual coffee, long-ish answer, its single origin Brazilian coffee that has gone through a freeze drying process to make it ready to drink with the addition of water.
According to Wiki: "Nootropics are drugs, supplements, and other substances that may improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation", So basically they'll help you learn, perform, and generally just upgrade your brain.

Well, yes, the calories are all from the coffee, unlike what the rest of the deceiving supplement industry would have you believe, Instant Coffee has calories! During the process to dry it and provide it in a form that allows you to just add water, every instant coffee on the planet is about 75% carbs and 25% protein.
You'll notice that no instant coffee in your local store will have a nutrition information label on it, coupled with the popularity of coffee as a fasting safe drink (that is, espresso or pour over coffee) it has allowed the calories in instant coffee to go unrecognised. But do not fear, in all studies, black coffee of all kinds has shown to provide no insulin response or change in blood sugar levels.
Calories from coffee appear to absorb in relation to the increased central nervous system stimulation and mobilisation of fatty acids, making them almost null to affecting any form of ketone or insulin changes.
Yes and yes. iQ Brew is entirely safe with no artificial ingredients or anything on the banned substance list for professional level athletes or those required to take drug tests. We're currently getting certification to be an officially approved ASADA supplement.
We aren't either! iQ Brew's goal is to produce a packaging that is 100% biodegradable. We're helping you build your best brain, and we need the planet to stick around long enough for you to use that brain of yours, so we're committed to building towards an ethically sustainable packaging process to minimise waste, however this is expensive, and during our start up phase is highly difficult to make happen. So stick around, we'll never release any crappy plastic products, and will soon force the industry to catch up to our packaging standards
Unless that diet excludes coffee (We surely hope it doesnt), yes it is! iQ Brew has no affect on blood ketone levels, blood sugar levels, contains no animal products, no gluten, and no bad vibes what so ever
We actually encourage you to add in a dash of almond milk, the earthy taste of Lion's Mane mushroom pairs perfectly with the almond milk taste to create a delicious brew.
If you find iQ Brew to be too sweet, simply opt for a half dose, or add in more water to dilute the flavour profile. If you would like to make it sweeteer, go for gold, honey makes an amazing way to sweeten it up whilst boosting its flavour.
