Guarana Ingredient Manufacturer

Guarana, also known as Paullinia cupana, is a climbing plant popular for its fruit. It has a long history of use for its multiple therapeutic effects.

Guarana packs many stimulants and antioxidants, including caffeine, theophylline and tannins. Its seeds are processed into powdered form for use in supplements.

1. Loaded With Antioxidants

Guarana is loaded with compounds that have powerful antioxidative properties, including catechins, caffeine, theobromine, tannins, and saponins.

As a matter of fact, guarana has a similar antioxidant profile to green tea.

In case you didn’t already know, antioxidants protect our bodies against harmful molecules called free radicals, which are directly linked to cancer, aging, and heart disease. (1)

Several recent test-tube studies show that guarana’s antioxidative properties assist your body in killing cancer cells, reducing aging and heart disease risk. 

2. Reduces Fatigue and Improves Concentration

Guarana is a popular ingredient for energy drinks and other energy boosting supplements because it packs large amounts of stimulants, such as caffeine and tannins. 

In fact, guarana contains nearly 4 times more caffeine than coffee beans. (2)

According to this study, people who took a vitamin supplement containing guarana felt less fatigued during several physical and mental tests as compared to those who took a placebo.

What’s even more impressive is that some studies directly link guarana supplements to reduced mental fatigue in cancer patients. 

3. Improves Your Learning Ability

Multiple studies show that guarana can improve your learning skills.

During one study on the effects of different guarana doses on mood and learning, participants were divided into the following five groups:

  • Group A: received no guarana
  • Group B: received a 37.5 milligram dose of guarana
  • Group C: received a 75 milligram dose of guarana
  • Group D: received a 150 milligram dose of guarana
  • Group E: received a 300 milligram dose of guarana

Group B and Group C achieved the highest test scores.

Since low doses provide low doses of caffeine, the study suggests that other compounds of guarana were responsible for improving learning skills of the participants.

4. Supports Weight Loss

According to recent estimations, one in every three American adults is obese, and obesity is not only an American health issue but a global one.

Since guarana contains caffeine, which may boost your metabolism rate by 3-11%, it can help your body burn more calories at rest. (3)

What’s even more impressive is that several test-tube studies conclude that guarana suppresses genes that aid fat cell production and promotes genes that slow it down.

5. Provides Pain Relief

Guarana’s history as a painkiller dates back to the times of Amazonian tribes. Its pain-relieving properties are due to its high caffeine content.

Caffeine relieves pain by binding and blocking certain adenosine receptors, including A1 and A2a — both of which are responsible for stimulating feelings of pain. (4)


Health Issues Associated With Guarana Deficiency

People who consume guarana daily have less chances of suffering from:

  • Constipation
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Certain skin disorders
  • Certain types of cancer

If you want to save yourself the discomfort caused by the health issues mentioned above, then adding a guarana supplement to your diet is a great way to go about it.


Daily Recommended Intake

An ideal dose of guarana is individual-based. It is determined by the following factors:

  • User’s age
  • User’s health
  • The condition the user is trying to treat

Currently, the scientific data available is not enough to determine the daily recommended intake of guarana for the average individual.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
