Health Benefits of Guarana
Guarana’s Rich Phytochemistry
Guarana seeds contain up to 6x more caffeine than coffee, making it a powerful natural alternative. Its rich photochemistry includes catechins, saponins, tannins, flavonoids, polysaccharides, proteins, and fatty acids.
Guarana acts on the central nervous system to help improve cognitive function, focus and alertness. It is also a stimulant for the muscles, boosting exercise performance. Guarana’s mild flavor and aroma makes it an industry favorite for energy and soft drinks—this category of beverages alone uses nearly 70% of Brazil’s guarana production every year!
