Guarana and weight loss
So far, the myth has been that guarana is an excellent means of weight loss, but unfortunately it is not. Guarana can stimulate our body, awaken energy and relieve the feeling of hunger. It can help with hunger attacks in diets, but it simply does not burn excess pounds. Guarana speeds up metabolism, but it does not contribute to a simpler fat burning. However, the advantage of Guarana is that it does not cause almost no side effects, if only slightly and exceptionally.
Guarana and cultivation
Cultivation of guarana requires a specific environment. Because it is a tropical plant, it needs enough moisture and heat. Guarana is a magnificent adornment of a vast garden or tropical greenhouse. Cultivation is very similar to grapevine. First, the seedlings are placed at a distance of 2×2 meters and are regularly cut. The substrate should contain gravel or sand for good permeability. Seeds bake to a depth of about 1.5 cm and for better germination it is recommended to immerse the seeds in hot water for several hours. Seeds of Guarana require warmth and plenty of sunshine. When the seeds germinate, they must grow red. Treated seedlings must have tropical conditions.
