UPC Code: 767963127204
Guarana Seed, also known as Paullinia cupana, is part of the Sapindaceae family, which includes maple and horse chestnut. Guarana Seed is produced from a climbing plant grown in Brazil's Amazon basin. The Guarana plant features large leaves with clusters of flowers and has become well known for the high caffeine content in the seeds of its fruit. Guarana Seeds are about the size of a coffee bean, but they contain about twice the amount of caffeine - about 40 - 50 mg of natural caffeine per 1 g. These seeds are turned into powder which can be added in tea or water for a natural caffeine boost comparable to the effect of an energy drink, soft drink, or coffee.
Guarana powder has antioxidant properties and has also been used to reduce fatigue, boost energy, lower heart disease and increase mental alertness. The active ingredient can be used to treat numerous health conditions or increase athletic and cognitive performance.
Not only is guarana powder used due to its high caffeine content, but also its antioxidant properties. Compounds like tannin, theobromine, saponins, and catechins are important antioxidants that can neutralize potentially harmful free radicals.
