Guarana (Paullinia cupana) is an Amazonian vine, known for its stimulating and healing properties. This is owed to a large amount of caffeine, theobromine and theophylline. These compounds are found in the seeds of the plant. After entering the body, they affect the central nervous system – they stimulate the production of epinephrine and norepinephrine and also block the purinergic receptors. This translates into higher energy levels, improved concentration, reduced sleepiness and psychophysical fatigue. Guarana is also a strong antioxidant and has antibacterial properties.
Preparations from this category are most often used as an alternative to coffee. They ensure a solid "energy kick", facilitate the focusing of attention, have a positive effect on mental performance and physical endurance. Importantly, the action of guarana is more balanced and not as intense as the action of coffee, and also lasts longer. Therefore, people who are particularly sensitive to caffeine and experience irritability and dissociation following the consumption of coffee should try to replace it with guarana seed extract. In addition, preparations from this category have loyal fans among athletes – not only due to the promotion of exercise capacity but also due to the acceleration of the rate of fat loss, reduced risk of cramps and alleviation of muscle pain.
