{"id":1010483069043,"title":"Guarana Seed Powder - 100% Wildharvested!","handle":"guarana-seed-powder-100-wildharvested","description":"Guarana is one of the best known stimulants originating from the Brazilian rainforest. Guarana increases concentration and clears the mind. It quickens perceptions, slows the pulse and suppresses the appetite which is very useful during long drives or work periods.\r\n\r\nGuarana is used traditionally as a natural energy source or stimulant. It can be used to replace coffee and consumed in the same way or added to coffee to strengthen it.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGuarana can also be used to combat hangovers, neuralgia and menstrual headaches though long term use may cause nervousness and insomnia.\r\n\r\nAlso known as Brazilian cocoa and Uabano this is a climbing shrub with divided compound leaves. It is widely taken as a health tonic in Brazil helping people to over-come fatigue.\r\n\r\nGuarana is in the methylated purine group and contains about 5% caffeine which is about 3 times as much found in normal coffee making this the strongest naturally occurring methylxanthine. It also has the same chemical composition as caffeine \u0026amp; cocaine and the same physiological action.\r\n\r\nGuarana soft drinks are wildly popular in Brazil, and have been marketed in other countries world wide as energy drinks. It is available in other forms, including chocolate bars, chewing gum, powder, syrup and capsules and these products may be difficult to find outside of the Brazilian marketplace but can be found in some health food stores across the United States. Guarana can be found in many sports nutrition products but can be taken alone in dosages of 50 to 250 milligrams divided throughout the day. Guarana is chemically identical to caffeine and is also known as guaranine. It has been used for thousands of years by native Amazonians to help maintain their stamina and increase physical endurance. The seeds have seven per cent more caffeine than most plants, including coffee beans. The biggest difference between the caffeine found in coffee beans and that of guarana, is that guarana's caffeine is released much more slowly, providing longer and more sustained stimulation. Directly stimulating the central nervous system and increasing metabolism, guarana is becoming more popular with body builders.\r\n\r\nPossible Side Effects - Guaranine, a chemical compound found in guaraná, produces many of the same effects as caffeine. Individuals with conditions that may be complicated by high caffeine intake (including insomnia, depression, and pregnancy) should consult with a physician before adding guarana to their diet. Guarana products that provide up to 400 milligrams of caffeine per day are considered safe.\r\n\r\nChemical composition of Guarana seeds:\r\n \r\nVegetable fiber: 49.125 %\r\nReddish resin: 8.800 %\r\nStarch: 8.350 %\r\nWater: 7.650 %\r\nPectin, malic acid, mucilage, dextrin, salts: 7.470 %\r\nGuarana-tannic acid: 5.902 %\r\nCaffeine: 5.388 %\r\nYellowish steady oil: 2.950 %\r\nPyro-guarana acid: 2.750 %\r\nReddish colorant: 1.520 %\r\nAmorphous substances: 0.606 %\r\nSaponin: 0.060 %\r\nPacked Fresh To Order In Our Flavor Savor Foil Bags!

The taste is extremely agreeable when mixed with sugar, but quite bitter when consumed alone. In spite of the high caffeine content, Guarana acts extremely slowly.
