What is Guarana? 

Guarana has traditionally been used to assist in the relief of various ailments such as stress and nervous tension, weight control, headaches and hangovers, and even menstrual pain. The effects of guarana alkaloids (the active ingredients) and compounds are not the same as in coffee and other caffeine products. You only need a small serving of pure guarana seed to obtain optimum results.

Guarana vs Coffee

A typical cup of strong coffee is prepared with 8 to 10 grams of ground coffee beans and contains about 310mg of caffeine plus other water soluble alkaloids and compounds. A cup of coffee is really an extract and contains only the water soluble alkaloids that are found in the coffee bean. Black Ram contains 150 mg of ground guarana seed which contains about 6 mg of naturally occurring guaranine plus other alkaloids and compounds found in the fiber of the seed. 
These ingredients are released gently, giving you up to 5 hours of refreshing vitality. Pure guarana powder is the ideal supplement to maintain stamina and ward off fatigue and tiredness.

A 100% Natural Product 

Guarana is a natural herbal supplement and energy booster that will help provide you with increased energy. Its refreshing properties have been enshrined in the folklore and customs of ancient Amazon tribes and have been medically recognized in the 21st Century. 

Guarana is the pure seed of the Paullinia Cupana vine - a climbing shrub found in isolated areas of the Amazon rain forest The seed is about the size of a pea, looks like a brown pebble and has a slightly bitter taste. When dried and ground to a powder, it is mixed into drinks. 

When consumed in its natural state, guarana seed powder provides a synergetic delivery of many compounds and trace elements to pleasantly and beneficially affect your total body system. The Guarana seed powder used in Black Ram contains nothing but the 100% authentic guarana seed fiber... unlike the derivatives used in other energy drinks and food products. 

Guarana was listed on the Australian Register as a complementary health medicine in 1994. Pure guarana seed is efficiently digested so that its compounds and trace elements are rapidly distributed to the metabolism, providing an energy boost with numerous health benefits. 

History of Guarana

The History of Guarana Paulina berries: Guarana (Paullinia Cupana) has a long history of traditional use by the Amazonian Indians of South America. The plant was discovered by the Maues-Sateres tribe and used as a general tonic. Guarana means "secret eyes" and was so named because the fruit resembles a human eye. 

The medical effects of pure guarana seed powder are well documented from both folklore and research in the 21st Century. The stimulant effects of this rain forest plant were recognized in the western world during the late 1980s. As a result of observational studies, the beneficial effects of Guarana have become the subject of scientific research. 

Anecdotal evidence suggests the supplementary benefits of guarana include relief of mild anxiety, stress and nervous tension, weight control, temporary relief from headaches, and relief from menstrual pain. It's little wonder the Amazon Indians worshipped guarana as a "gift from the gods".
