3 Key Guarana Benefits and Top Supplier Overview

Sep 2, 2018

The Brazilian plant guarana is a native of the Amazon basin. The guarana fruit is generally the size of a coffee bean. The tribes in the Amazon basin have been using guarana seeds since centuries as it contains therapeutic properties. It has an abundance of stimulants like theophylline, caffeine, and theobromine. Today, approximately 70% of the guarana produced is used in energy and soft drinks by companies in the beverage industry, while approximately 30% is turned to powder for other uses.

Top Three Guarana Benefits

#1. Antioxidants

Guarana is very rich in compounds that contain antioxidant properties like tannins, caffeine, saponins, theobromine, and catechins. It is a surprising but interesting fact that guarana has a profile of antioxidants that are very similar to that of green tea.

#2. Fatigue reduction and concentration booster

Guarana is a well-known ingredient in popular energy drinks available in the market today. It is a brilliant source of caffeine that provides mental energy and helps in maintaining concentration. In fact, guarana contains five to six times more caffeine than beans of coffee, which can be harmful if consumed too much.

#3. Weight loss

Obesity is a common condition today. The caffeine content in guarana helps in boosting metabolism by 4-10%, which means the body can burn more calories when at rest. This can ultimately help in promoting weight loss.
