Source Naturals Guarana Energizer addresses the following body systems
Every second of our lives, billions of biochemical reactions are taking place in our bodies. New molecules are produced and spent as old ones are broken down and disposed of. Our metabolism is a massive, complex, yet perfectly orchestrated system of energy that enables us to survive and thrive. In almost every chemical reaction in the body, a spark is needed to energize the reaction. This spark is provided by adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the energy molecule. It is fundamental to our physiology. Amazingly, the body must produce half its own weight in ATP every day. It is a wise life strategy to give ATP production all the help we can. If this system is not working well we may feel tired and fatigued and our health may be affected.
Within each cell there are typically 1,000-2,000 mitochondria. This organelle is the site of three connected, complex, multi-stage biochemical processes - the Glycolytic cycle, the Krebs cycle, and the Electron Transport chain - these produce ATP. Carbohydrates, fats and proteins are digested and enter the energy cycle to manufacture ATP. This requires a huge reserve of nutrients including B-vitamins, alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, and Acetyl L-Carnitine.

Historical or traditional use
The indigenous people of the Amazon rain forest have used crushed guaraná seed as a beverage and a medicine.

Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual's potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry's #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals' comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today's Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
