Guarana is perfect for everyone who wants to enjoy the stimulating effect of caffeine but does not tolerate coffee. Night owls and truckers, who usually want to stay awake without consuming too much coffee, may also profit from Guarana. In Brazil Guarana is part of everyday life and highly appreciated by soccer players, racing drivers and politicians.
Guarana (lat. Paullinia cupana) is a climber plant that belongs to the soapberry family and is originated in the tropical rainforest. Long before the first European settlers came to the Amazon region, native people already knew about the properties of that climber with its red fruits and black seeds. They called it “warana” which later became “Guarana”. Up to this day native Indians still squash Guarana seeds to the form of a solid stick which they pulverize with the help of the rough tongue of the Pirarucu fish. They apply Guarana as energizer and food substitute.
Unlike coffee, Guarana does not have a prepping effect, but is refreshing and vitalizing for body and soul. Due to its high content of natural fibres, caffeine (also called guaranin) is released slowly and can be gently absorbed by our body. The stimulating effect continues 4 to 6 hours and does not cause any side effects.
