Guarana

Guarana

Info

Paullinia cupana

Taste

Bitter, tart and caffeinated plant. Belongs to the family of soap tree plants. The name guarana refers to the indigenous Guarani people of South America.

Effects

The caffeinated guarana seeds have a long ethnobotanical tradition. The cracked, ripe fruit is reminiscent of an eye, which is often referred to by indigenous peoples as a “wakeful eye”. Guarana caffeine is stronger and more compatible than the more well-known coffee caffeine. Due to the high proportion of tannins, the intake of caffeine is slower compared to that coffee and takes place over a longer period.
Ideal in high-performance sports
Guarana has become very popular in recent decades. Especially in strength sports such as bodybuilding and weightlifting and other high-performance sports, guarana has established itself as an important supplement to performance enhancement.
100 % organic guarana guarantee!
At PilotsFriend we only use certified organic guarana extract. The production of this extract is complicated, difficult and costly, which is why ORGANIC guarana extracts are also much more expensive. To ensure that our customers receive 100% organic guarana in the Organic Feel Well Drink, the purity and caffeine density of our extracts, in the framework of the “Catechin analyses”, continually tested.
