Guarana Extract (6:1) 400mg by EssentialSeries is a food supplement in vegetable capsules made from Paullinia cupana seed extract in a 6:1 ratio.
Guarana is an exotic plant used in the traditional natural medicine of native South American cultures for the ethnobotanical functions of its active ingredients. Today, its extract is used as a concentrated version for the stimulating effects of the caffeine it contains.
Guarana Extract (6:1) 400mg is a product suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Because during long study days the ability to maintain attentional resources towards the task becomes more difficult, a factor that negatively affects cognitive performance and test efficiency.
The caffeine contained in guarana extract has proven to be one of the most useful compounds to use during study sessions, or other activities involving the use of large amounts of mental resources.
Guarana extract contains caffeine, a recognised alkaloid with nervous system stimulant properties that has been shown to help increase alertness.
In addition to other widely studied active compounds such as:
- Various methylxanthines (theobromine and theophylline).
- Catechins and epicatechins.

Which some authors have proposed as being responsible for some of the effects of guarana seeds.
Many students use products with high caffeine content, such as energy drinks, for their positive effects on wakefulness. These drinks contain caffeine and guarana.
Guarana seeds are a natural source of caffeine, which in the context of fatigue in the face of cognitive demands, such as attentional tasks, has been shown to be effective in the treatment of fatigue:
Guarana extract is a botanical compound widely used, again because of its naturally occurring caffeine content.
In the context of sport, during physical exercise, caffeine:
- Contributes to increased performance in endurance tests.2
- Contributes to increased endurance capacity.2
- Contributes to the reduction of perceived exertion and fatigue value.3
This makes it a very useful supplement for athletes, especially endurance athletes such as runners, cyclists or practitioners of sports such as CrossFit®.
The extracts are obtained by concentrating the compounds naturally present in various parts of the treated plants.
In this case, we have used the seeds of Paullinia cupana to obtain a product with a concentration 600% higher than that present in the seeds of the plant in its natural state.
This high extraction allows for more intense effects with less product. A daily dose of 800mg of our guarana extract is equivalent to almost 5g of seeds.
Guarana extract (6:1) 400mg is suitable for inclusion in vegetarian and vegan diets.
The capsules used for the production of the product have been manufactured using HPMC, a compound derived from a vegetable polymer called cellulose.
Most of the capsules marketed by other companies in the market are made from gelatine, due to its low cost and good performance, however, as they are derived from animals they make the capsules unsuitable for vegetarians.
Our capsule products are 100% free of animal traces, made exclusively from ingredients suitable for consumption by vegans.
Take two capsules a day, divided into two intakes, one at breakfast and one at lunch.
If you are looking for the positive effects of guarana on concentration, you can use one serving approximately 45 minutes before the start of a mentally demanding activity, regardless of whether or not it is combined with food.
Goes great with products like:
- ALCAR (Acetyl L-Carnitine) powder.
- DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) powder.
- Mucuna Pruriens Extract (10:1) 500mg.
- Ashwagandha extract (10:1) 400mg.
- Ginkgo biloba (50:1) extract 120mg.
