Panela Supana

Other Names: Panela Supana, uabano.

Habitat: South America, Brazil & Venezuela

Properties:  Primarily this herb is a stimulant. It quickens your perceptions and wakefulness, slows the pulse, impairs the appetite, and can be used to allow for long drives, extended work hours, endurance based athletics,and delaying sleep.

CAUTION: Long term use of Guarana alters the blood sugar, which can cause nervousness, insomnia and possible psychic habituation. Use vitamin B supplements to counteract this possibility.

To prepare, powder guarana seed with a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder. Prepared like coffee the grounds can be used several times. Two nuts are recommended per cup. The powder can also be placed inside of medical capsules, useful if you don't like the taste.
