It is in Brazil and more specifically in the Amazon, that we find guarana, a plant used for centuries for its beneficial effects and in the manufacture of natural food supplements. The least we can say is that this plant is not without attractions and interests for the human body. It is indeed provided with a large number of active principles and contains in particular caffeine, also called guaranine. In its natural active ingredients, there are also vitamins and minerals as well as trace elements. In herbal medicine, guarana is considered a quality superfood, but what are its properties? Guarana is a small, bitter-tasting berry growing on a climbing vine, specifically a fast growing shrub. You can eat the fruit and the seed once they are prepared. Traditionally, the bark is removed and the seed (which looks slightly like a coffee bean) is left to dry for 6 days and 6 nights. The dried fruits are then diluted with a little water to form a very concentrated paste. The latter will be smoked for about 40 days before being usable. This is how some natives used to prepare guarana.
The Many Benefits of Guarana
Christian-François Paullini, German doctor and scientist of the 17th and 18th century, would have been the first European to take cognizance of the positive effects of guarana. Even today, the plant's scientific name is Paullinia cupana. Native to South America, the little red berry was already known to Native Americans living in the Amazon, who traditionally used it by chewing the seeds to take advantage of all their active substances. They believed that the plant helped them boost their strength on a daily basis. The benefits of guarana have been known for a very long time, it is estimated that its use dates back to 3000 years. The popularity of guarana was established in France in the 19th century. Then, at the end of the 20th century, many guarana-based energy drinks emerged in several Western countries. Various soda and cola have been flavored with the plant, in order to take advantage of its virtues. Today, plant capsules are preferred for ease of use, but also because they contain natural products, unlike carbonated drinks that are too sweet! In naturopathy, guarana is used mainly for internal use, orally. You will find in herbalism and organic store tablets and capsules, but also drinks, dried berries and decoctions.
