Guarana seed is a potent South American energy food with numerous health benefits used traditionally as a natural energy source or stimulant. For thousands of years, native Amazonians have used the seed extract of the guarana berry to help maintain stamina and physical endurance.
Over the last 10 years Guarana has become increasingly popular as a herbal high or natural stimulant. Taking 1 gram of guarana seed powder orally will provide a clean hit of energy, mental clarity and gentle excitement that usually lasts between 2-4 hours. Guarana increases concentration and clears the mind. It quickens perceptions, slows the pulse and suppresses the appetite which is very useful during long drives or work periods.
Guarana contains guaranine, a compound almost identical to caffeine! It can be used to replace coffee and consumed in the same way or added to coffee to strengthen it. Guarana also contains large amounts of theophylline, theobromine, and tannic acid, and is also rich in saponins.
The fact that Guarana seed is fatty means that even ground into a powder, it is not readily water soluble. Therefore, the body does not quickly absorb it. The guaranine is released slowly! Guarana Benefits: combats fatigue, increases energy, stimulates brain function, aids concentration, helps to speed recovery from illness, reduces the appetite, acts as a gentle diurectic, improves tolerance to heat and humidity.
This herbal tonic has also traditionally been used to assist in the relief of various ailments such as stress and nervous tension, weight control, headaches and hangovers, and even menstrual pain. Guarana powder can be mixed with fruit juice, punch or herbal tea.
