1. It’s a sustainable source of natural caffeine based energy from the guarana berry.
As a dietary supplement or herb, guarana seed is an effective stimulant: it contains about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee seeds (about 2–4.5% caffeine in guarana seeds, compared to 1–2% for coffee seeds).The additive has gained notoriety for being used in energy drinks. As with other plants producing caffeine, the high concentration of caffeine is a defensive toxin that repels herbivores from the berry and its seeds.
The colour of the fruit ranges from brown to red and it contains black seeds that are partly covered by white arils. The colour contrast when the fruit is split open has been compared with the appearance of eyeballs and has become the basis of an origin myth among the Sateré-Mawé people.
2. It will stimulate your mind, body and motivate you to excel at your activity.
Today, guarana seeds are still used as medicine. Guarana is used for weight loss, to enhance athletic performance, as a stimulant, and to reduce mental and physical fatigue.
Guarana Provides Additional Stimulation over Caffeine Alone in the Planarian Model
America is in the midst of an energy crisis. We're guzzling energy drinks and shots at record rates but feeling more lethargic than ever. Sales of these products have more than doubled in the past 5 years, with 35 percent of men ages 18 to 24 drinking them regularly, a new Mintel survey reveals.
"Guys create an up-and-down trap with energy drinks and with whatever they take at night to help slow down," says Matthew Edlund, M.D, author of The Power of Rest. "They never feel completely rested." Or, even scarier, they end up on a gurney in the ER. Hospital visits related to energy drinks have surged more than tenfold since 2005, reports the U.S. Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality. And most of those amped-up patients are men. so be smart and use our shots with purpose. Take one shot and then drink water the rest of the day. Avoid sugar and other caffeine drinks afterwards.
4. The dominant taste is Guarana which is a natural extract which we mix with natural flavors like raspberry, caramel or passion fruit. Guarana is an acquired taste like beer, wine or coffee. We leave the Guarana as untouched as possible to preserve all its qualities and only add additional natural flavors to soften its bitterness.

One of the the main advantages of Guarana over coffee is the duration of the stimulation. Guarana energy is much longer lasting than coffee, plus the stimulation is less jittery and more clear in character. Guarana is absorbed slowly by the body. This results in a long lasting energy release over hours - a stark contrast to the fast rush and crash experienced with coffee.
Guarana not only contains higher amounts of caffeine than coffee, it also contains other alkaloids and fats that suppress the sensation of hunger and thirst. This is one of the reasons why Guarana is often used in weight loss programs. Also, since only a small amount of the powder is needed, there are virtually no calories being ingested, which further is ideal for anyone looking to loose weight.
The natural heat that Guarana creates within the body is known as thermogenesis, and is a normal metabolic process that aids the breakdown of stored body fat into energy. Whilst the caffeine present in both coffee and Guarana is known to facilitate this, the theobromine and theophylline found in Guarana enhances it further.
As a result, Guarana is an extremely viable, and in many aspects preferable alternative to coffee. It delivers much longer lasting energy without the jitters, plus it packs healthy antioxidants. It could be argued that the quick rush from coffee is what you need in the morning; however, switching coffee for Guarana as a daytime drink can release more sustainable energy to get you through a hard days work.

15. You will not get jitters or heart racing since the guarana is being absorbed through your digestive system and will therefore only act as a slow release stimulant, as compared to other products where you get the full dose immediately in one hit. This is why SuddenRushGuarana will last 5 hours or longer.
16. You will not crash because of the digestive system being involved in the slow release of the caffeine. So it will bring you up gently and bring you down the same way: gently.

19. The effects depend on your body. Things like what and when you eat can affect how you feel it. When you consume the shot your digestive system will take approximately 5 hours or longer to get it digested and extract all the benefits from it. This means it benefits you longer.
