More about Cola Nut Capsules

The Cola tree belongs to the Cola genus. This genus, the Sterculiaceae family, contains more than 120 species. There are two types of trees that are most commonly cultivated for the edibility, taste and effects of their seeds: the Cola acuminata and Cola nitida. The trees produce yellow flowers with purple spots. The fruits are star-shaped. By opening the fruit about 12 seeds become visible, the cola nuts, surrounded by a white skin. The smell is quite floral and sweet. The taste, however, is bitter.
The trees have their origin in the tropical rainforest in Africa. They like a humid and warm climate but also survive drought, as long as there is enough water in the ground. The trees can withstand extreme conditions, for example by growing at high altitudes.

Effects

The stimulating effect of cola nut has been used for a very long time to stay awake, to arouse more alertness, to promote concentration. It was also used for fever, nausea and vomiting.
Many people drink one or more cups of coffee a day to improve their ability to concentrate. Coffee contains caffeine and this substance stimulates the central nervous system, makes you more alert and gives you energy. Some people are sensitive to coffee and can become tense and restless. The effect of Cola nut is partly due to two active substances: caffeine and theobromine. The first substance is present in cola nut three times as much as in a cup of coffee. The latter substance is also present in cocoa (this is also where 'theo' comes from, which means divine. Cocoa is seen as divine food). Theobromine gives energy, although it is much less than caffeine. A piece of dark chocolate can give a fine, warm feeling thanks to theobromine. Cola nut is also said to increase libido. Theobromine relaxes the bronchi in the lungs and affects the vagus nerve. Theobromine appears to be more effective than codeine in suppressing coughs. 

Use

The cola nut is the seed of the cola tree. They are white and red coloured and have a bitter taste. They can be eaten as such, but usually they are either dried and processed or stored in water. They can be made into tinctures, extracts and powders. Sirius.nl has processed high quality kola nut in powder form into capsules that are easy to take.

Tradition

Cola nuts have a royal reputation in Ghana and are chewed on official occasions. In West Africa the nut is used to restore vitality. The nut itself occupies an important place and is seen as a religious object. It is sacrificed during prayers and ceremonies. The Malinke and Bambara in Mali and Senegal use the cola nut as a means of payment. In South America, cola nuts are an important part of the Santeria and Candomble religions. 

Flavour enhancer

In the 19th century, pharmacist John Pemberton mixed extracts of cola nuts with coca, sugar and other ingredients. The well-known drink Coca Cola that came out of this mixture contained cola nuts as an ingredient, as well as coca (the coca plant used to make cocaine). Nowadays this is no longer the case.

Usage

Take 1 capsule on an empty stomach, with plenty of water, soft drinks or fruit juice.
