Supplements #20: GUARANA is a natural source of caffeine which is especially popular in Brazil where it is used in carbonated drinks.

GUARANA is a natural source of caffeine which is especially popular in Brazil where it is used in carbonated drinks. Caffeine is used by many plants as a natural defense against insects but not birds which help spread the seed to new locations as they don't digest the seed and it passes into the soil. It is named for the Guarani tribe in the Amazon where it's seeds were brewed to make a beverage. It was called " the eyes of the people" fruit from its eye-like appearance. Its seeds contain about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee beans. Caffeine is the most studied brain supplement improving all aspects of brain function including attention, mood, memory, and cognition. In supplements it is often used in addition to caffeine. So when you see Guarana – think caffeine from the eyeball fruit!! #drdavidheber #caffeine #guarana to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
