What is guarana extract good for?

- Jun 14, 2019-

The guarana extract is an active substance extracted from the guarana of the Sapindaceae family. Guarana is the most stimulating beverage plant in the world. For centuries, Guarana has been used as a stimulant by Indians in the Amazon region of Brazil. In the early 20th century, Brazil used Guarana to produce beverages; by the middle of the 20th century, Guarana became a symbol of Brazil and was widely used in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

The guarana extract contains caffeine, theophylline, theobromine, tannin, saponin, various catechins and other trace substances. It can be used for weight loss, nervous system stimuli, memory improvement, blood circulation, convergence, prevention of fat formation and decomposition of fat, impotence, cytoprotection (repair of DNA damage caused by nitrite) and antioxidant effects. Even at very low doses (1.2 mg/L), it inhibits cell membrane lipid peroxidation, but at high doses (2%), it does not produce significant toxic effects, which is very important for maintaining vitality and prolonging life.

Significance

Anti-fatigue effect Guarana extract can significantly increase the glycogen reserve in the body's liver, helping the body maintain blood sugar levels during exercise, thus providing more energy to resist fatigue. At the same time, the guarana extract also has the ability to remove lactic acid from the body, effectively alleviating the fatigue caused by the accumulation of sports metabolites.

Extraction process Preparation of guarana extract

Guarana raw materials → crushing → leaching → coarse filtration → centrifugal separation → removal of tannin → coarse filtration → fine filtration → guarana extract

Select guarana dry products, wash the debris and dust with sterile water, then break into fine and powdery shape, boil for 15min in 15° with softened water in the sandwich pot, soak for 2~3h, filter to dip The liquid and the slag are further added with 10 times of demineralized water for repeated leaching, and the filtrate is combined twice for centrifugation for 10 to 12 minutes. Discard the supernatant and sediment.
