Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies)
The indigenous people of the Amazon rain forest have used crushed guaraná seed as a beverage and a medicine. Guaraná was used to treat diarrhea, decrease fatigue, reduce hunger, and to help arthritis.1 It also has a history of use in treating hangovers from alcohol abuse and headaches related to menstruation.
While natives used guarana for centuries, it took science a while longer to discover its many useful properties. In the 1700s, the German botanist Theodore von Martius isolated a bitter, white crystalline substance that stimulated a remarkable physiological action. Von Martius named this substance guaranine, which later became caffeine. Guarana seeds contain up to 4-8% caffeine (25,000 to 75,000 ppm). They also contain large quantities of alkaloids, terpenes, tannins, saponins and flavonoids. Amazonian villagers had always used guaraná as a health tonic
for everything from mental alertness to digestive discomfort to energy stimulation. Now science was beginning to understand just how powerful guarana is in so many ways.
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.
