Eat Healthy, Stay Energized, Naturally.
Ever heard of guarana?
Ever had an energy drink?
Then chances are, you've already tried it!
If you run on caffeine, you want to focus in on this superfruit.
There's so much more to guarana than just caffeine and energy. Guarana has been used for centuries by Brazilian tribes for its healing and energy-boosting properties.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF GUARANA SEEDS
Natural Source of Caffeine (& Lot's of it!)
What truly makes guarana so popular is its natural caffeine content.
Guarana seeds can contain upto 6% caffeine making it about 5 times more potent than the almighty coffee bean.
This makes it a common ingredient in sports and energy drinks.
So how does it compare to coffee?
The caffeine in guarana works similarly to other caffeinated beverages by blocking adenosine, a neurotransmitter that relaxes the brain and makes you feel tired.
However, unlike coffee, guarana is released slowly, giving you long-lasting energy. Very similar in nature to matcha, but slightly more intense due to the higher caffeine content.
On top of reducing physical fatigue, it's also been shown that guarana may help improve mental fatigue.
Nutritious- Rich in Antioxidants
Guarana has a similar antioxidant profile to green tea. It's rich in catechins, saponins, theobromine and tannins.
Which explains why it helps provide the next few benefits...
May be good for your skin
Studies show caffeine’s antioxidant properties help protect cells against the UV radiation and shows anti-aging properties by slowing down the process of photoaging of the skin.
Did you know a lot of OTC pain meds contain caffeine?
This is because caffeine binds and blocks adenosine receptors (remember those?), two of which are responsible for stimulating the feelings of pain.
A majority of the guarana used today is in energy drinks. But they tend to be filled with either sugar, artificial sweeteners and/or stimulants.
Go straight to the source instead and enjoy guarana in its purest natural form.
