ALERT / ATTENTION
The study by Meyer & Ball (2004), University of Tasmania, Australia, shows that alertness/alertness, measured by test results, is significantly better after drinking guaraná than after drinking coffee. Above all, this study shows that this effect increases the longer the test lasts. The greatest difference in results was achieved after more than 2.5 hours. An indication that the active substances contained in Guarana are released into the body more slowly and gently than in coffee.
AGING PROCESS IS SLOWED DOWN
The natives of the rainforests of Brazil spoke of Guaraná as the elixir of youth. Guaraná is often used in anti-wrinkle face creams.
A 1998 study by Dr. Mattei from the University of Sao Paulo shows that guarana has an antioxidant effect. This means that cell aging is slowed down.
A study by Prof.-Basile from the University of Naples in 2005 shows two things: On the one hand, G. had an antibacterial effect and, on the other hand, after administration of G., the chemical reaction of proteins (cell aging) was reduced by up to 62.5%.
The most recent study (200) by Dr. Fukumatsu from the University of Sao Paulo shows that the DNA damage caused by a specific poison (cigarette smoke) could be reduced by 52.54% by the administration of G.
IMPROVEMENT IN MEMORY
Students use G. mainly during the learning phase before exams and during exams. G. should soon find its way into the hectic business world.
The most recent study (2006) by Dr. Haskell of Newcastle University underlines the positive spiritual effect of G. on humans. This study also underlines the long-term effect.
Studies by Dr. Espinola from 1997 show that memory performance improved after taking G. in the areas of concentration, memory and endurance.
A study by Dr. Kennedy, University of Newcastle2004 shows that taking G. improved attention and shortened the time it took to recall stored information.
G. was on the doping list until 2004 because of its effects. G. Besides caffeine, it has even more ingredients to offer and seems to lead to clear increases in performance both in the anaerobic area (ice hockey, strength training, generally in sports with short, intense pressure to perform) and in the endurance area.
A study by Williams MH. From 1998 shows that caffeine affects the central nervous system and adipose tissue. This improves the mental state, in addition, the fatty acid oxidation is improved.
Another study by Dr. Espinola from 1997 shows that under stressful conditions physical performance could be significantly increased by taking G., whereas giving coffee or ginseng was not associated with an increase in physical performance.
Performance advantages can be identified above all in endurance sports and sports with anaerobic stress (energy production without oxygen).
Dr. Lima of the biomedical institute in Sao Paulo showed that after 14 days of taking G. the glycogen reserves contained in the muscle were greater than in the comparison groups. At the same time, there was a reduction in the fat content in the muscles.
MOOD-LIFTING EFFECTS OF G.
The study by Dr. Haskell from the University of Newcastle (2006) shows in a double-blind study that taking G. has a mood-enhancing effect. In Brazil, G. is prescribed as a mild antidepressant.
INFLUENCE ON HEALTH
A study by Dr. Bydlowski from the University of Sao Paulo (1988) shows that the clumping of blood platelets, i.e. thrombosis, is prevented.
dr Because Fonseca and independently Dr. Morton were able to show that already existing thromboses could be broken down by G.
The study by Dr. Campos from the University of Fortaleza (2003) shows that G. has a preventive effect on acute damage to the stomach caused by ethanol.
