Product Description

The Kola nut (Cola nitida), also known as Cola, Guru nut, Kola Tree, Cola Nut, Cola Seed, Guru Nut and Bissy Nut is African in origin, and grows on several native tree species such as the Cola nitida or Cola vera, and the Abata Cola (Cola acuminata). The Cola acuminata is an evergreen tree of about 20 meters in height, and has long leaves that have a leathery texture. The trees have yellow flowers, and star-shaped fruit.

Kola nuts are grown worldwide, and are extremely popular due to their high caffinee content. Kola nuts have a bitter taste, and contain between 1-1.5% caffeine by weight. They are also a source of antioxidants and contain small amounts of theobromine, d-catechin, l-epicatechin, kolatin, phlobaphens, antocyanin pigment kola red, betaine, and protein.
Kola nuts and kola extract are used in the manufacture of soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, candy and nutritional supplements. Kola extract is a popular ingredient in fat-loss supplements due to its ability to stimulate the forebrain (thereby increasing focus), suppress hunger, aid in the digestion of food, and act as a diuretic.

Kolas phenolics are also likely to act as antioxidants, thereby preventing free-radical damage.
