Guarana is a natural reservoir of caffeine. The seeds have potent antioxidant and antimicrobial properties and is often used to treat cellulitis and aging skin. It has been found to control the expression of genes that are involved in fat accumulation.
Guarana contains catechin, which helps reduce oxidative stress that can contribute to the development of cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Guarana also has antimicrobial properties, which can help act as a natural antibiotic.
Its caffeine content aids blood flow to the skin and test tube studies have shown that the antioxidants in guarana may significantly reduce age-related skin damage.
Studies have also indicated that guarana containing cosmetics may reduce sagging in your cheeks, improve skin tightness and minimize wrinkles around your eyes.
We use guarana as a primary ingredient in our magnesium therapy wrap. When it is absorbed through the skin, it bypasses the digestive tract thus avoiding any type of side effects that caffeine typically has on digestion. The guarana also comes into direct contact with the skin, helping to tighten saggy skin and improve any visible scars/stretchmarks.
The bottom line is - this natural ingredient is a MUST if you are looking to tighten your skin from both the outside in and inside out and give your metabolism a little boost while doing so.
