“I want vasopressin, washed caffeine, Jumpstart, ginkgo biloba, guarana, and any intelligence enhancer introduced in the last five years.”

Warren Ellis

Guarana, or Paullinia cupana, is a beautiful evergreen climbing shrub in the Sapindaceae family. Its branches can reach up to 12 m in length. The oval leaves have serrated margins. The bright red flowers grow in clusters. The fruit is bright yellow, and its top is red. Inside the fruit there are 1-2 oval seeds that are similar to grapes in appearance. Guarana originates from the Amazon basin and is widespread in Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and Peru. The plant was named after the Guarani tribe in the Amazon that used to make a drink from the guarana seeds. It served as a soothing, restorative, tonic, and invigorating remedy.

Nowadays the seeds are utilized in the production of food additives and drugs. Guarana energy drinks are very popular for their ability to quench thirst and boost energy.
