What is guarana good for?
The caffeine in guarana helps to alert us and counteracts fatigue - one reason why guarana is commonly found in energy drinks. It is also considered to promote mental capacity and increase concentration and focus. In addition to caffeine, guarana also contains theophylline and theobromine, two substances that are closely related to caffeine and which also have a stimulating effect. Guarana can therefore be a good supplement at times when you need to be extra sharp.
Guarana or coffee?
The most well-known source of caffeine is of course coffee, but there are reasons why guarana can be a more beneficial source of caffeine. For example, guarana contains twice as much caffeine as coffee, and in addition, the caffeine in guarana is experienced to have a slower and more lasting effect. It is considered to give a steadily elevated energy level that remains stable during the day.
Does guarana have any side effects?
Because guarana contains a high level of caffeine, certain side effects may occur at high doses. Examples of such side effects are dizziness, muscle tremors and difficulty sleeping. Any side effects can be avoided if you follow the recommended dosage. People who are sensitive to caffeine should be extra careful when it comes to guarana supplements.
