Raw energy bars with a secret ingredients - GUARANA .
In collaboration with Ljekarnik.hr
Guarana...a well-known stimulating plant from the Amazon rain forest, whose natives link their longevity to this "elixir of long life".
We all know that Guarana seeds are high in caffeine, a reason why many people avoid it, but also some people use it expressly because of that.
Gurana contains between 3-7% caffeine, much more than coffee, but since it's been released slowly into our body, his stimulating activity lasts longer without causing rapid heartbeating, as in coffee or green tea.
Theobromine, found in this powerful plant helps in fat burning, which contributes to weight loss and cellulite reduction.
Also, caffeine in guarana stimulates urination helping the body release toxins rapidly as well as getting rid of nexcess water from the body
