Kola Nut - Cola nitida


Because of their stimulating properties Kola nuts were used in magic and as aphrodisiacs, and they still play a strong role in religious and social life of many West and Central African cultures. Europeans began Kola plantations in the 1600s and also took them to the New World - and yes, the original Coca-Cola used them.

The Kola – or Cola – nut comes from two near identical trees, the small cola tree (Cola acuminata, which has a 4 to 6-part nut) and large cola tree (C. nitida, with a 2-part nut), both indigenous to West Africa.


Kola was found to contain caffeine in 1865, and later theobromine, which is an active ingredient in chocolate.


Kola has a pronounced stimulative effect and the nuts are consequently used as a tonic, to wake a person up and remain vigilant, and to treat fever, vomiting and morning sickness (with no negative effects). In general, their effect is to invigorate and promote concentration.


Some of the bitter red and white seeds are eaten fresh but most are stored in water or dried in the sun. The nuts are used to make extracts, tinctures and wine extracts.

Nuts are offered to guests and exchanged at the end of business meetings, and in places such as Ghana they are communally chewed at royal and parliamentary occasions. In South America cola nuts are integral to the Santeria and candomble religions.


No negative effects have been observed or described, and all kola products are legal around the world. An average daily dose is 2-6 grams three times daily, taken as a powder of ground seeds.

    Super mais trop cher.
    J'adore!!! Tous les matins dans un yaourt ainsi que tous les midis également dans un yaourt. Juste une cuillère à café et celà suffit amplement pour un petit effet stimulant. Ne vous attendez pas à autre chose qu'à l'effet d'un très bon café très serré mais n'aimant justement pas le café en général quel qu'il soit, je trouve cette alternative super pour moi Le seul bémol c'est le prix....7,55€ si on en prend 150gr, donc quasi 23€/150gr alors que sur un site concurrent nous somme à 23€/300gr......pourquoi une telle différence? Si ça s'explique par la qualité, une est bio et l'autre non....mais je ne crois pas donc d'où s'explique le prix, j'aimerai bien savoir? Sinon pour ma part c'est un super produit


    Buy them as powder
    Have bought them as whole nuts to get the full African experience. A little aphrodisiac and clear mind. If getting whole ones: Hard to chew on, so wait for them to absorb saliva. Counter: Remains on the teeth => hard to get rid of/clean

    Fast wie Guarana
    Nicht ganz soviel Coffein wie Guarana aber dafür mehr Theobromin (lat.für Die Speise Gottes) Ich fülle es in Kapseln ab und nehme eine davon und eine mit Guarana Dann ist der Tag dein Freund
