A Healthy And Natural Energy Booster
The Guarana berry has over 2.5 times as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. You may have seen this ingredient listed on your energy drinks and there's a good reason. Guarana is a natural energy booster that has been used for centuries.
It was originally used to help hunters. The Guarani tribe in Brazil used the berries in a tea to help them sustain their energy on hunting trips that lasted for days. Unlike coffee, the guarana helps you sustain your energy, not just spike it up and then drop it back down.
Alkaloids keep the caffeine from absorbing too quickly. Coffee sends the full dose of caffeine straight to your system, giving you a huge surge of energy that causes a big drop and the need for more cups of coffee. Powerful alkaloids in the guarana berry slow the absorption rate of the caffeine, so you get a steady dose over a period of 4-6 hours.
Additional nutrients give you mental clarity and aide in memory. Sometimes coffee and sugary energy drinks can make you feel jittery and unable to focus. Studies have shown that the theophylline and theobromine in guarana berries actually improve memory and aide in focus and concentration by toning the central nervous system.
Guarana is also an excellent weight loss supplement. Deemed by the FDA as safe in normal doses, this berry can also help you lose weight. By making you feel fuller faster and suppressing your appetite, the guarana is a great diet snack.
Combine it with açaí berries for an even more powerful weight loss supplement. The lenoleic acid in açaí berrieshelps the antioxidants in the guarana reduce fat cells. Even on their own, guarana berries help stimulate lipid flow, so your body is ready to burn fat and produce energy.
Guarana berries are often used for other medicinal purposes too. From helping with digestion, relieving migraines and raising blood pressure for those with hypotension, the guarana berry doesn't just stop at giving energy and helping you lose weight. It has even been used to help women with breast cancer fight fatigue from chemotherapy.
Grow your own powerful superfruit. Save money on all those cups of coffee and give yourself a surge of natural, sustained energy with the Guarana Berry. Purchase your plants today and get ready for a robust harvest of healthy, energy-giving berries.

This Guarana Bush is the real deal and the size of the plant is phenomenal for the price. Plants arrived so healthy I couldn't believe it. Mealy bugs were present but not a crazy infestation. Will be treatable. Would recommend to everyone!!
