Guarana Info

Guarana (Paullinia cupana) is a plant from the maple family, native to the Amazon basin and popular in Brazil as a health tonic. The fruit is of similar size to a coffee bean and contains 2-3 times the amount of caffeine. This accounts for guarana’s reputation as a herbal stimulant.

Guarana Benefits

As a stimulant guarana is taken to increase mental alertness and memory, lift mood, fight fatigue and promote stamina and endurance. Best results are achieved at lower doses.

Studies show guarana’s appetite suppressing and fat burning properties are due to its caffeine content.

Guarana Side Effects

Serious adverse effects have been reported when guarana is used with products containing ephedra. These include elevated heart rate and blood pressure, changes in glucose and potassium levels, increased risk of haemorrhage, stroke, heart attack and sudden death. Contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding, or while taking antidepressant drugs. Contraindicated for people sensitive to caffeine or xanthines. Medical supervision of guarana use is advised for anyone with heart conditions, diabetes, hypertension, epilepsy, thyroid disorders, anxiety, insomnia or kidney disease. Symptoms of guarana overdose include difficulty urinating, vomiting, abdominal cramps and spasms.

Product Reviews

  • Couldnt find this product in the shops so very pleased to purchase it here.

    I have had a bottle of guarana capsules in the car for quite a long time, as I sometimes do long solo trips. I had used the last of my capsules to drive from the top of the North Island back to New Plymouth, towing a float with a horse that was difficult to let out for a break, so thanks to several guarana capsules managed to do the whole trip, (including through Auckland) of 760kms in one go, without feeling tired at all. I did also have 2-3 coffees as well, but felt totally confident and alert at all times. I have recently repeated the trip, and to my dismay couldnt find guarana in the supermarket or chemist, so was delighted to be able to purchase it online before the 2nd trip. It would also be a great product to take before herd tests and other episodes of high concentration, without any side effects. I could have bought energy cans but who wants all that sugar and other rubbish as well?
