Guarana is a plant native to South America that bears a small red fruit with black seeds. These black seeds are rich in caffeine, containing more caffeine than you’ll find in traditional sources. Nova Scotica Organics uses a concentrated whole food form of the seed in our Guarana Energy.
Nutrients found in whole fruits co-exist with bioflavonoids, carotenoids, and other complex phenolics. This ensures the stability and related bioavailability and activity of the various nutrients.
