Natural Source Of Caffeine

          Caffeine is present in more plants than just the Coffee. This plant is one of many natural gifts from the cosmos that produces this commonly sought after chemical. It contains much more caffeine than most of its other competitors. It also has a history of use as medicine with many different applications.There are a lot of other plants that contain caffeine.


Medicinal Properties


Anti-diarrhea(yikes!); Diuretic; Stimulant; Fatigue; Mild Depression, Headache, and Migraines; Vascular muscle relaxant; Appetite suppressant(Swerdlow, 2000, p. 374)


Guarana has even been used as an aphrodisiac to enhance sexual desire, to increase urine flow, and as an astringent. It may also be beneficial for the following ailments: diarrhea(yikes!), fever, heart problems, headache, joint pain, backache, and heat stress. It works by stimulating the human central nervous system, heart and muscles. The herb also contains theophylline and theobromine(also found in chocolate) which are similar to caffeine.


It's no wonder people love this stuff so much, it's obviously good for us and that makes us feel good. For the skeptics though we are here to present the data. A study conducted on the effects of Chocolate and human health shows that it has positive effects on our cardiovascular system. The reason I mention this is because like I believe our cardiovascular health effects our happiness, because if it is ill our inner spark is dull as well.


Psychoactive Drugs Are Natural


Whether you like it or not, caffeine containing plants are drugs. The effects that they produce are the "high". Society is going to have to learn to respect the rights and choices of others, especially when it comes to their choice of natural intoxicants like Coffee, or Marijuana. On the other hand, there are certain substances which prove to be detrimental to society, like Methamphetamines, which are completely un-respectable. The planet should be free from such diabolical chemicals.
