Guarana - Paullinia cupana

(23)

Guarana belongs in the stimulant category of drugs, along with the likes of coffee, tea, ephedra, khat and maté. It comes from the seeds of an Amazonian vine (Paullinia cupana) that look remarkably like horse chestnuts, and its usage dates back thousands of years. Many Indians consider it a gift of the Gods and use it as a hunting aid.

More info

Reports of guarana’s use did not appear in Europe until the mid-1700s, but its high caffeine content – up to 5% of seeds - has made it a core ingredient in modern energy drinks.

ACTIVE COMPOUNDS OF GUARANA

Guarana is the strongest of all the caffeine drugs, being three times stronger than coffee. Some of its caffeine exists in a complex bond with several tannins, which gives it a longer lasting action than coffee.

EFFECTS OF GUARANA

Guarana has potent stimulating effects but does not produce the same ‘jitters’ as coffee. The binding complex of guarana’s caffeine gives it an inhibiting effect on hunger and thirst sensations. It also acts as a mild anti-depressant and has reported aphrodisiac effects. Curiously, some people are immune to its effects (and can even become more tired) even at high doses.

PREPARATION, DOSAGE AND USE OF GUARANA

Indians grind the seeds and mix with manioc flour, which is allowed to ferment, then dried in the sun. Small amounts are shaved off the resulting loaf and used as a tea. Guarana extract in the West is used in chewing gum, teas and canned drinks.

WARNING

There are no known drawbacks from guarana use, although some energy drinks have been shown to increase dehydration when drunk in excess.

    Tonico ma nulla di troppo speciale.
    Frantumato e in infusione per 5/10 min. 4 semi. Non riesco a sentire tutta questa grande "caffeina" di cui si dice tanto.

    bon coup de boost
    4 graines broyées au presse-ail infusées et une belle journée de travail intellectuel avec de la concentration. C'était limite un peu beaucoup pour moi. 3 graines me semblent bien.

    Natural energy
    I mix this with Kola Nut for my lover, who's hooked on coffee, and he loves it! I also made a brew from the two for a karneval and it was a natural energetic lifesaver! Doing coffee as a stimulant can cause anger issues and low patience. Guarana does not :)

    Good product
    Good product. Ordered the beans instead of the powder but they are easily grinded to a powder.

Hello i was looking for this stuff, but i really don't know ho to use it. Can someone tell me how to get the best effect from this? I have to prepare a thea with tis or what else? Whitch one get the best effects? The solid or the dusty one?

administrator

The Guarana that we sell is to be made into a tea. The solid and powder kind both turn into a tea however the solid requires some more preparation. The solid kind must be ground down into a powder for best results. We sell both as it is the personal preference for some customers to use the solid kind, I believe the taste/ feeling is a little different.

Non bevo caffè', perché' mi provoca tremori, e vorrei sapere se posso usare il guarana', considerato che pur contenendo per tre volte la dose di caffeina del caffè' non provoca gli stessi effetti collaterali.

Guarana is a common ingredient in energy caps and drinks. Guarana powder contains about 4.2% caffeine and several other components like guaranine, theobromine and theofilline.
