Review Now! Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream


This lotion absorbs into your skin very fast, and does not leave a greasy feeling like some lotions do. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream smells absolutely amazing! The scent is pistachio caramel, which is very delightful. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is packed with Amazonian berry guaraná extract, whose fruit happens to contain one of the most potent forms of caffeine in the world. (Like, 5 times more caffeine than coffee. #nbd.) Which helps with skin tightening and cellulite reduction.


What is guarana?


Guaraná (pronounced gwa-ra-naa) is a berry that grows in the Amazon River drainage basin in northern parts of Brazil. Guaraná’s berries are widely regarded as an exceptional source of natural caffeine and have been used for centuries by native Amazonians to help maintain their stamina and increase physical endurance. It is the number one source of caffeine for South Americans. It has a different effect, however, then the caffeine normally consumed through coffee. This disparity in experience and effect

from the natural caffeine of the guarana is due to its plant source that also contains widely varying mixtures of other xanthine alkaloids, including the stimulants theophylline and theobromine, and other substances such as polyphenols that form insoluble complexes that help to slow the release of caffeine into the bloodstream.

The really amazing thing about the guaraná berry, though, is that contained in its antioxidants there seems to be something that causes the memory to sharpen. So not only are you getting a boost of energy when you are consuming guaraná but you are also developing a sharper memory. It is a perfect complement with açaí. (Source and more information )
