A bit of history
The Jesuit missionary Felipe Bettendorf (1625-1698), reported in 1664 that the Guarana gave so much strength to the members of an Amazonian tribe, the Maué Indians, that they could go hunting for two consecutive days without feeling hungry, in addition to treating fever, cramps and headaches. »
In pre-Columbian times, 2,000 years B.C., the Native Americans dried the seeds over a fire and crushed them on a flat stone to make a paste that they shaped into cylindrical sticks, which were then dried in the sun.
In 1826, the first guarana substance was isolated and was called guaranine, a molecule identical to caffeine. From 1880 to 1910, guarana extract appeared in the American pharmacopoeia as a stimulant, diuretic andhypertensive.
Among the few legends that surround the Guarana is that of a young woman of the Mauès tribe, called Onhiamuaçabe, who, discovering her dead child in the forest, plucked out her eye and planted it in the ground, invoking the spirit of the trees and whispering: "You, my son, will be the greatest force of nature, you will liberate men from their problems and heal others".
A little later, a plant came out of the ground in the same place.
It was the first "Wara" or Guarana plant. It is true that the fruit looks like an eyeball...
