The Treasure of the Amazon
Guaranà fruit grows deep within the Amazon rainforest, one of the world’s richest climates, and home to half the world’s living animal and plant species. There you can also find hundreds of thousands of indigenous people, after one group of whom, the Guarani, the Guaranà fruit is named. The fruit was traditionally, it’s said, consumed as a hot drink, often during periods of fasting to supplement declines in energy. The Guarani people’s love for this precious seed made its transference into popular culture inevitable, and it’s now made its way into innumerable carbonated energy drinks across Brazil and the rest of the continent, as well as sweets and dietary supplements.
The Gift that Is Guaranà
Scientific interest has recently become focussed on Guaranà fruit, due to one factor - its incredible caffeine levels, which can measure up to four times higher than that of coffee beans. In recent times, caffeine has become an essential aspect of many people’s lives. It’s frequently cited in anecdote as brilliant at boosting digestion, mental sharpness and physical power. Fitness enthusiasts often enjoy its benefits when they’re looking to enhance their performance during workouts, in addition to its thermogenic properties, and ability to reinvigorate the metabolism of lipids.
In case that wasn’t enough, there’s an increasing awareness that the other compounds found within, xanthines like catechins, tannins, and procyanidins, can enhance and extend the fruit’s energising effects. What’s more, research into indigenous Amazonian people who regularly consume Guaranà in their diet found links to lower levels of cholesterol and a smaller waist circumference.
