Guarana (Paullinia cupana)

 

How does it work?

Guarana is a South American plant in which the seeds are used for their medicinal properties.1 Guarana is known to be a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant due to its moderate caffeine content.2 It has mood enhancing actions, may improve cognitive function and alertness, is an appetite suppressent and ergogenic aid.3 These actions are due to containing not only caffeine but theobromine, theophylline, tannins, resins and saponins.4

What results can be expected?

Guarana may assist in weight loss through appetite suppression and CNS stimulating action, as well as increasing energy output during exerise due to the stimulating effects of caffeine and theophylline.5 Due to these constituents, Guarana therefore may also assist in temporarily reducing mental and physical fatigue.6
