WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Chewers of caffeinate gum report (anecdotal) better performance and better moods (likely due to caffeine effect on neurotransmitter activity).  There is evidence suggesting that alertness, quicker reaction time, mood improvement, sustained attention and stress reduction are some benefits of chewing an energy gum.  Increased heart rate (more blood flow to the brain) and cortisol (steroid hormone released from the adrenal gland) levels may help explain these effects.  References:  www.healthblurbs.com.au

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAFFEINE AND GUARANA?

The difference between guarana and caffeine is that the former is a type of plant, and the latter is a chemical ingredient. Caffeine is one of the many chemical compounds naturally occurring in guarana plants. This ingredient was first called guaranine on the ingredient labels of products containing guarana. It is often used in energy boosting dietary supplements as an alternative to coffee.  This plant originates in South America and has been in use by Brazilian natives for many centuries for medicinal purposes. It is a climbing vine in the maple family and produces clusters of white flowers and dark fruits, ranging in colour from brown to deep red. These fruits contain twice the amount of caffeine naturally that a single coffee bean does.  Guarana and caffeine were originally marketed as two separate and uniquely individual ingredients. Beverages and foods that commonly contain caffeine list this chemical on the ingredient label, such as chocolate, coffee, tea, and soft drinks. Energy and dietary supplements which contained guarana included the chemical ingredient guaranine on the label instead, and manufacturers claimed this as a more natural supplement and alternative method to caffeine for improving metabolic functions. Scientists later discovered that guaranine is the same ingredient as caffeine, and guarana products have since been appropriately labelled.

WHAT ARE FUNCTIONAL GUMS?

Functional chewing gums are gums that impart some practical function in addition to the usual enjoyment (and breath freshening effects) provided by traditional chewing gum as a confectionery product.
