Guarana is a fruit, and its extract is widely used in energy boosting products (e.g. drinks) as it contains stimulants such as caffeine.
Caffeine can bind with adenosine, a substance that relaxes our brain, and therefore preventing them from making us feel sleepy. Along with enhanced energy, guarana is shown to improve memory too.
Guarana is also seen in many weight management products due to its caffeine content, which boosts our metabolism and fat burning ability.
