What is Guarana, and How Can it Benefit You?
Posted on 19 October 2016
Lyfe Tea Morning Tea is infused with the natural powerful ingredient known as Guarana. We get asked the question what exactly is this. Look no further than this article. We hope to convince you that only the best ingredients go in our tea.
Where is it From?
Guarana is a plant of the Amazon that is found in parts of Venezuela and Brazil. The berries of this plant have a number of health benefits, including the ability to burn fat and increase energy, among others. Today’s common use of guarana is in energy drinks and sports nutrition drinks due to its energizing effects. Lyfe Tea takes a more holistic and natural approach. It is not over processed, rather it is used in it's most raw form to give you all the benefits it has to offer directly into our tea blend.
One of the most powerful benefits of guarana is its energizing effects. Guarana has a similar chemical structure to that of caffeine, and the plant seeds provide even higher caffeine effects than typical caffeine drinks, including coffee. Guarana may be more effective than coffee with regards to its energizing power, as guarana is released more slowly into the body to provide sustained energy. The plant directly stimulates the central nervous system and may be taken in small doses to fight fatigue and increase activity levels. We get asked if this can replace a cup of coffee in the morning, and the question is a most definitive yes. It is a healthier alternative with a natural coffee content rivaling some coffee brands.
Guarana has been used for centuries, as the early natives would use it to make teas that would suppress hunger for weight loss. Guarana is used today in Lyfe Tea to support weight loss by providing stimulation and combating hunger. Guarana may promote weight loss by kick starting the nervous system to induce the process of lipolysis. This process involves the release of fat into the blood stream where it is used as energy during exercise.
In addition to its energizing and weight loss effects, guarana also provides a number of medical benefits for the body. Guarana encourages movement of the bowels, which is a beneficial effect for people suffering from constipation. Additionally, guarana is effective for treating other complications of the bowels, including gas and diarrhea, as it helps to detoxify and cleanse the system.
