INTRODUCTION

Caffeine (anhydrous) is a naturally occurring methylxanthine derivative used as a CNS stimulant, to restore mental alertness and wakefulness in patients experiencing fatigue or drowsiness.

Manufacturing
Caffeine anhydrous is made from the seeds and leaves of green coffee plants. The word “anhydrous” means “without water.” After harvesting, caffeine is extracted from the plant matter and dehydrated. This produces a highly concentrated caffeine powder.
