These vibrant and colorful coffeeberries have been carefully selected and sourced from native plants within California and Nevada, making them a truly special ingredient.

What sets coffeeberries apart from traditional coffee products is their high antioxidant content.

Its antioxidant properties can help protect the body against oxidative stress, while its anti-inflammatory effects may aid in reducing inflammation in the body. Additionally, coffeeberry® may have cognitive-enhancing properties, making it a promising ingredient for those looking to support their mental function.

Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract

Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract is a key ingredient in selected products because of its unique properties and the many benefits it provides. Derived from the whole fruit of the Coffea arabica plant, also known as Coffeeberry® (not to be confused with Coffea canephora, the coffee plant), this extract is carefully selected from the ripe fruit that lives in the coffee bushes of California. Although coffee berries are typically discarded during coffee production, the rationale for formulating products with Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract lies in the fact that they are rich in antioxidants and other beneficial compounds.

When the coffee berries are ripe, they have a purple color and a clean, shiny appearance. The coffee cherries on the bushes are harvested and the coffee beans are removed, leaving behind the whole coffee fruit. This fruit, which is about the size of a cherry, contains polyphenols, caffeine, and other ingredients that have been found to have various health benefits.

Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract is unique because it is the only extract made from the whole coffee fruit. Other extracts, such as green coffee extract, are made from the unripe green coffee beans. Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract contains a unique combination of polyphenols, which are natural antioxidants that help protect the body from oxidative stress. These polyphenols have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and cognitive-enhancing effects. They also support heart health and have been linked to weight management.

Studies have shown that Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract may improve cognitive function, boost energy levels, and enhance athletic performance. It is often used in sports nutrition products and supplements designed to support overall health and well-being. In addition, the caffeine content in Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract is lower compared to roasted coffee beans, making it a suitable choice for those looking to reduce their caffeine intake.

In summary, Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract is a unique and interesting ingredient that doesn’t go to waste. Through the careful extraction process, the beneficial compounds present in the coffee berries are preserved and used to create a range of products with potential health benefits. Whether it’s in the form of a supplement, a skincare product, or a massage oil, Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Extract may be an ingredient worth considering for its rich polyphenol content and other associated health benefits.


The sourcing of coffeeberries is a crucial aspect for Neurohacker Collective. We take great care in selecting and using only the highest quality coffeeberries to create our clean and green Coffeeberry® extracts.

The coffeeberry comes from the Rhamnus family and is native to California and Nevada. These unique fruits are green when unripe and turn red when they are fully mature. We make sure to source our coffeeberries from the best habitat within California to ensure the highest quality extracts.

Although coffeeberry bushes can also be found as weeds, the fruits from those sources don’t provide the same quality and quantity of polyphenols as the whole coffeeberries selected and used by Neurohacker Collective.

Coffeeberry® extracts have been of great interest due to their various health benefits. They contain an interesting portfolio of polyphenols, making them an interesting ingredient for formulating healthy products.

While it looks like a coffee bean, it is important to note that the coffeeberry is not related to the coffea plant which produces coffee. The coffeeberry is unique in its characteristics and offers different benefits.

Neurohacker Collective partners with FutureCeuticals to make sure that our coffeeberry sourcing is sustainable and supports the health of the planet. We aim to contribute to a future where clean and green ingredients are the norm.

Coffeeberry® is a unique ingredient that comes from the coffeeberry fruit, which is harvested from the Coffea arabica plant. The coffeeberry fruit is a small, red berry that is similar in size and shape to a coffee bean. It is selected when ripe and then processed to extract its valuable components.

Formulating products with Coffeeberry® is an interesting opportunity for many reasons. First, Coffeeberry® is sourced from California, where the Coffea arabica plant is found in its natural habitat. This means that Coffeeberry® contains characteristics specific to the California climate and environment, making it a unique ingredient.

Furthermore, the family of plants that includes Coffea arabica and Coffeeberry® is known for its health-promoting properties. Research has shown that these plants contain high levels of phytochemicals, such as antioxidants, which can have a positive impact on cognitive function and overall health.

Dr. Mark O’Connor, the Chief Science Officer of FutureCeuticals, believes that Coffeeberry® is one of the most powerful natural ingredients discovered in recent years. His ethnobotanical research and exploration of California’s plant life have led him to select Coffeeberry® as a key ingredient for cognitive health products.

When formulating products with Coffeeberry®, there are several principles that are followed. First, the whole coffeeberry fruit is used, ensuring that all of its beneficial components are included. Second, the coffeeberries are carefully processed to preserve their potent phytonutrients, such as caffeine and other antioxidants. Third, the Coffeeberry® extract is standardized to ensure consistent potency and efficacy.

The rationale behind these formulating principles is that Coffeeberry® has the potential to support cognitive health and overall well-being. The unique combination of phytochemicals found in Coffeeberry®, including caffeine, antioxidants, and other bioactive compounds, may have a synergistic effect on brain function.

Although Coffeeberry® and coffee beans are similar in some ways, there are also important differences. Coffeeberry® is derived from the Coffea arabica variety known as Coffea canephora, while coffee beans come from Coffea arabica. Additionally, Coffeeberry® is rich in antioxidants and other phytochemicals, while coffee beans are typically roasted, which can diminish their antioxidant content.

In conclusion, Coffeeberry® is a unique ingredient with a wide range of potential applications. Its natural characteristics, potent phytonutrients, and selected processing make it an interesting ingredient for cognitive health and overall well-being. By incorporating Coffeeberry® into products, there is an opportunity to harness the power of this California-grown fruit for the benefit of people’s lives.


Caffeine is a key component found in CoffeeBerry®, the fruit of the Coffea California plant. It is known for its stimulating effects on the central nervous system. The rate at which caffeine is metabolized varies from person to person, with some individuals being able to tolerate higher levels than others.

Neurohacker’s Coffeeberry® extract is sourced from carefully selected coffee plants in California. The unique characteristics of the CoffeeBerry® fruit make it an interesting candidate for formulating with caffeine. While most people associate caffeine with coffee, the benefits of using caffeine from CoffeeBerry® go beyond what is typically found in a cup of joe.

The key mechanisms of caffeine involve its interaction with adenosine receptors in the brain. Adenosine is a neurotransmitter that promotes sleepiness and relaxation. Caffeine blocks these receptors, preventing adenosine from exerting its effects. This leads to increased alertness, improved concentration, and reduced fatigue.

In addition to its effects on adenosine receptors, caffeine also stimulates the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine, which are associated with feelings of pleasure and increased wakefulness. This further enhances its stimulating effects on the central nervous system.

Although caffeine is primarily known for its stimulatory properties, it also has antioxidant effects. CoffeeBerry® extract, rich in polyphenols, provides additional health benefits beyond caffeine alone. These polyphenols are believed to have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, supporting overall brain health.

Neurohacker’s Coffeeberry® extract is clean, meaning that it is free from impurities that are typically found in coffee. This extraction process removes unwanted compounds, leaving only the beneficial components of the fruit. It is a unique and effective way to experience the benefits of caffeine without the jitters or crash often associated with other sources of caffeine.

In summary, caffeine from CoffeeBerry® has key mechanisms that make it a valuable ingredient for improving mental performance. It targets adenosine receptors in the brain, increasing alertness and reducing fatigue. It also stimulates the release of dopamine and norepinephrine, enhancing feelings of pleasure and wakefulness. In addition, CoffeeBerry® extract provides antioxidant benefits from its polyphenol content, supporting overall brain health.
