Guarana is an evergreen sprawling shrub-like vine which grows in the lush Amazon region of South America. This Guarana tree produces a red berry that has been used for thousands of years by the natives of the Brazilian Rainforest. They would dry and roast the seeds of the Guarana berry mixing them with water to create a paste that was used similarly to chocolate. The paste was added to foods and to create drinks and medicinal tonics. The active ingredient in Guarana is called guaranine which is chemically very similar to caffeine. Guaranine is marketed today to Western consumers in popular energy drinks.
Suggested Use: Take 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon in the morning.
