Dark Dog Organic is back and better!
Updated: Jun 8, 2021
The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here! After long restless days and many tasting trials, we can finally say we made it better. You asked we listened. We finally launched our new and improved flavors. But before I spoil all the fun, I want to talk about one of our top organic energy ingredients and its benefit. I promise it’s short, sweet and simple.
What is Guarana? Guarana is known as Paullinia Cupana (kudos to you for pronouncing that, lol) a plant derived from South America (mostly found in Brazil). This plant belongs to the Amazon basin and is very popular in Brazil. The Guarana plant produces red berries that look almost like an eyeball, with its dark brown seed in the middle. This seed is about the size of a coffee bean and contains more than twice the amount of caffeine. An extract is created by processing the seed into a powder, which is used as one of our top ingredients in our energy drinks.
Why is Guarana good for you? Well for starters it’s a great antioxidant. It has a similar profile to that of green tea. It’s also said that it may promote weight loss. Guarana contains caffeine; caffeine boosts your metabolism and we all know that a faster metabolism causes your body to burn more calories. It sounds like a win-win situation, right? If this doesn’t have you convinced just yet, then, what if I said, it may also improve skin appearance? Because of its heavy antioxidant properties, Guarana is very popular in the cosmetic industry, proving it may reduce sagging in the cheeks, improve skin tightening and minimize wrinkles. (I’m all in, where do I sign up?)
Regardless of whether you want an energy boost or just looking to improve your overall well-being, organic Guarana is a great option.
