Guarana (Paullinia cupana):
Guarana is a plant originally from Amazonia. The Amerindian tribes consume it to cure all sorts of evils, but for the sportsman it is the invigorating effect which is important. Indeed guarana contains a high concentration of caffeine which allows to energize the body to increase performance. The beneficial effect of caffeine on sport has been scientifically demonstrated very many times. In 2008, a Canadian researcher presented the results of all the studies carried out at a symposium on sports medicine: L.M.Burke, Caffeine and sport performance, 2008 NRC Canada.
The energy balance:
Intensive efforts require appropriate nutrition. The diet should help to sustain the effort over time and avoid hypoglycemia, which in addition to causing a decrease in performance can damage the brain (Blood Won SuH, Hypoglycemia, Brain Energetics, and Hypoglycemic Neuronal Death, GLIA 55, 2007).
