Description

Fluid Extract made by a process of hydro-ethanolic percolation, with a ratio of 1 part Guarana Seed to 1 part liquid. Liquid comprises of 55% water and 45% sugar beet derived ethanol.

Guarana (Paulinia cupana) is a climbing plant in the maple family, Sapindaceae, native to the Amazon basin and especially common in Brazil. Guarana features large leaves and clusters of flowers, and is best known for the seeds from its fruit, which are about the size of a coffee bean. As a dietary supplement, guarana is an effective stimulant.  Its seeds contain about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee seeds (about 2–4.5% caffeine in guarana seeds compared to 1–2% for coffee seeds).

As with other plants producing caffeine, the high concentration of caffeine is a defensive toxin that repels herbivores from the berry and its seeds.

The guarana fruit's colour ranges from brown to red and contains black seeds which are partly covered by white arils. The colour contrast when the fruit is split open has been compared with the appearance of eyeballs, and has become the basis of an origin myth among the Sateré-Mawé people.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Analgesic - It can be used as a herbal pain reliever.

Cardiovascular - Guarana is used as a cardiovascular health aid. It is used to tone, strengthen and balance the heart. It is also used to cleanse the blood and keep it from becoming “sticky” and forming clots.

Stimulate - It has a higher percentage of caffeine than the coffee or cacao beans. For this reason, it is often used in energy drinks and soft drinks. Guarana’s effect on the central nervous system, most specifically as a stimulant, has caught the attention of many athletes and dieters. The stimulant effect also helps with focus and mental acuity.

Weight loss - Guarana is a thermogenic stimulator. Its metabolism boosting and energy producing effect make this a popular supplement with those trying to boost performance or losing weight by increased caloric burning and suppressing appetite.
