What is Guarana?

Guarana, also known as Paullinia Cupana, is a Brazilian plant that sprouts deep in the Amazonian basin of South America. The plant produces the colourful Guarana fruit, containing the powerful caffeine-rich seeds, which provide a range of nutritional benefits. Because of this, the seeds have been consumed by indigenous Amazonian tribes and been a major part of therapeutic medicine for centuries! (1). More recently, as the therapeutic and performance potential has been further uncovered, the demand has grown considerably for the powerful Guarana seeds. In fact, the production of Guarana seeds in the Amazon is predicted to increase by 40% in the coming years (2).

After cultivation and ripening, the Guarana fruit is harvested by hand, plucked and roasted using traditional methods (1). It is then ground into a powder, and primarily used for soft-drink production or as a nutritional supplement, such as our Guarana powder! In fact, almost 70% of Guarana production is used for soft-drink caffeination and flavouring, while the remaining 30% is used directly as Guarana powder (3).
Guarana seeds are a prized commodity today, due to their high caffeine content in addition to small amounts of other stimulants such as theobromine and theophylline (3).

Health Benefits of Guarana

Caffeine 
Guarana contains more caffeine than any known plant species in the world, even coffee beans (4)! It can therefore help improve focus, cognitive function, reduce fatigue and boost mental energy. In one study, young adults performed cognitive tasks more efficiently and with reduced fatigue after consuming Guarana supplement, compared to a placebo group (5). In a similar study, those who consumed Guarana had improved mood, increased memory capacity and alertness than th eplacebo (6).

Antioxidants
Guarana is packed with a variety of antioxidants, all of which offer a range of health benefits. Some of these include caffeine, theobromine, catechins, epicatechins and tannins. It is well-known that catechin has powerful antioxidant potential in the body. Green tea is well known for the rich profile of catechins; however, Guarana seeds offer a similar, if not superior source of these healthful compounds. In fact, the catechins in Guarana have been shown to be highly bioavailable, can be absorbed easy, and exert several cardioprotective effects in humans (7).
In addition to catechins, Guarana also contains epicatechin, a healthful compound that is responsible for the popularity of cocoa powder. Guarana also provides a richer source of epicatechin than cocoa powder, and this compound has been shown to improve endothelial function and reduce oxidative stress (8).

Weight Loss 
Caffeine, is well-documented supplement that can upregulate metabolism, fat oxidation and suppress appetite, thereby aiding in weight loss (9). These effects can be expected for any caffeine-containing supplement. However, in recent studies Guarana has been independently examined as potential aid for weight loss. In a recent study, a supplement with a combination of Guarana and the herbal Ma Huang was compared to a placebo, for weight loss among overweight adults. Supplementing the Guarana/Ma Huang combination led to, on average, over four times more weight loss than that of the placebo (10)! Safety – Guarana has been repeatedly tested and shown to have excellent safety profile , however, because of the high caffeine content, it is important that you do not exceed the recommended dosage. Those who are overly sensitive to the effects of caffeine should therefore avoid it (11). Some side effects of excessive consumption may include palpitations, headaches, mood swings, nervousness and anxiety. In addition, if you have any illnesses, conditions or are pregnant, consult your physician before supplementing.
