Guarana is a leafy, climbing plant found in the Amazon Basin, which has been used in traditional medicines for centuries to treat minor health challenges. A French doctor, working in Brazil in the 1800s, first brought guarana to the attention of Western medicine, when he brought it back with him to France. Today, nutritionists tout it for a variety of uses, including enhancing athletic performance and fighting fatigue.* Guarana is a natural source of caffeine and other beneficial phytonutrients. Research has shown that guarana may help enhance cognition and alertness, and its antioxidant qualities may be beneficial to overall health.* With this natural powerhouse at the ready, it’s no wonder guarana is an active ingredient in Verve!
