Guarana is the well-known stimulant from the Brazilian rain forest. It increases concentration keeps a clear head and drives out mental boredom. Guarana also works as a sexual stimulant. Mixed with coffee it strengthens the effect of the caffeine, which means extra energy. We go the more natural route and mix it with maca.
Guarana is a woody evergreen climbing vine which adopts a semi-erect posture when cultivated in the open. It is indigenous to the Amazon Basin and is mainly cultivated between Maues and Manau in Brazil.
