Guarana is a tropical plant native to the Amazon basin that gets its name from the Tupi-Guarani natives of Brazil, who describe the herb as “the fruit for the eyes of the people.” The “fruit” referred to is the seed, which is housed is groups of one to three in a reddish, nut-like pod. In addition to volatile oils and tannic acids, the seed contains a compound that is chemically identical to caffeine called guaranine. Because guarana seed is used whole or powdered to create stimulating beverages, it is also known as Brazilian cocoa.
