    KOLA NUT DESCRIPTION

    The Kola Nut is also known as Cola acuminate, Sterculia acuminata, Kola Seeds, Gurru Nuts, Bissy Nuts, Cola Seeds, Guru Nut. Plant family is Sterculiaceae. Habitat includes Sierra Leone, North Ashanti near the sources of the Nile. It is cultivated in tropical Western Africa, West Indies, Brazil, and Java.

    Tropical Africa is the native home of the towering kola tree growing up to 40 feet (13 meters) tall. Its yellow flowers tinged or spotted with purple bear reddish-brown seeds about the size of a walnut with almost no taste but rich in caffeine. The leaves are 6 to 8 inches long, and pointed at both ends. In Western Africa these trees are usually found growing near the sea-coast, and a big trade is carried on with the nuts by the natives of the interior - Cola being eaten by them as far as Fezzan and Tripoli.

    The Igbo, a tribe in southern Nigeria, consider the kola nut tree to be the first tree (and fruit) on earth. They consider the nut to be a symbol of hospitality, kindness and fraternity. Throughout Western Africa, a small piece of nut is chewed before each meal to promote digestion. It was introduced to Europe in the mid 16th century by Portuguese traders. The nut is also thought to improve the flavor of any food and to counteract the effects of drinking tainted water.

    The different varieties of nuts give a greater or lesser percentage of caffeine, which is only found in the fresh state. The whole nut is used, containing caffeine, fatty matter, starch, sugar, and a fat decomposing enzyme acting on various oils. The seeds are said to contain a glucoside Kolanin, but this substance appears to be a mixture of Kola red and caffeine. The nuts, either whole or cut retain their caffeine content better than kola nut powder and it is recommended that you grind your Kola immediately before using.

    TYPICAL PREPARATIONS

    Kola, as its name suggests, is a main ingredient in many traditional colas. The seeds are extensively used as a condiment by the natives of Western and Central tropical Africa, also by the native populace of the West Indies and Brazil, who introduced the trees to these countries. A small piece is chewed before each meal to promote digestion. It is also thought to improve the flavor of anything eaten after it and even to render putrid water palatable. The powder is applied to cuts. In herbal medicine, the nut is usually soaked in alcohol to make tinctures. May be taken as tea although bitter, and the powder can be taken as a capsule. Kola nut was used as the main ingredient in cola drinks for many years, but is now mainly used as a flavoring agent.

    KOLA NUT VARIETIES

    There are several kinds of Cola seeds derived from different species, but the Cola vera are most generally used and preferred for medicinal purposes. Those from West Africa and West Indies supply the commercial drug. Cola acuminata, or Gurru Nuts, are employed in the same way as Cola vera. They are from a tree growing in Cameron and Congo, not esteemed so highly, but much in use as a caffeine stimulant. Six hundred tons are said to be sent yearly to Brazil for the natives use, who also employ the seeds of Sterculia Chica and Sterculia Striata.

    The Kola of commerce consists of the separated cotyledons of the kernel of the seed; when fresh it is nearly white, on drying it undergoes a fermentative change, turning reddish brown and losing much of its astringency. The dried cotyledons vary in size from 1 to 2 inches, are irregular in shape but roughly plano-convex, exterior reddy brown, interior paler, easily cut, showing a uniform section, odorless and almost tasteless. Large quantities of the fresh seeds are employed in Africa on account of their sustaining properties, where they form an important article of inland commerce.

    ADULTERATIONS: Male Kola (not to be confused with Kola) is the fruit of a small tree, Garcinia Kola, and contains no caffeine. The fruit is oblong, from 2 to 3 inches long and 1 inch broad. It is trigonal in section, reddish brown with nutmeg-like markings. Taste is bitter and astringent. Under the microscope, it shows resinous masses, surrounded by cells full of starch. The seeds of Lucuma Mammosa are sometimes found mixed with Kola Nuts, but are easily detected by their strong smell of prussic acid. Hertiera Litorales seeds are also sometimes found mixed with Kola Nuts. C. Ballayi (cornu) seeds are also used, but these are easily distinguished as the seeds have six cotyledons and contain little caffeine.

    KOLA NUT USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    The word "Cola" refers to the Cola genus, which includes the Kola Tree. This is the source of the Kola Nut. The Kola Tree is native to the tropical rainforests of Africa and contains the stimulant, caffeine. This makes it a desirable food source and an element used in alternative medicine for some world cultures.

    Kola Nuts are used as flavoring agents in soda drinks of many varieties, which is where the name "cola" arose. Culturally, Kola Nuts are often chewed or eaten in traditional ceremonies. While the most common application in western cultures is as the flavoring agent explained above, its medicinal benefits have begun to make it a popular dietary supplement for health, despite its slightly bitter taste. Kola Nut can be found in energy drinks, dietary supplements, and performance enhancers.

    HEALTH BENEFITS

    Some health benefits of the Kola Nut include its ability to boost the metabolism, optimize digestion, increase heart rate, help with weight loss goals, prevent certain cancers, boost the strength of the immune system, protect the respiratory system, raise energy levels, improve cognition, and increase circulation. Kola Nut is used for short-term relief of fatigue, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), melancholy, lack of normal muscle tone, exhaustion, dysentery, a type of diarrhea called atonic diarrhea, weight loss and migraine headaches.

    The properties of Kola are the same as caffeine, modified only by the astringents present. Caffeine works by stimulating the central nervous system (CNS), heart, and muscles. Fresh Kola Nuts have stimulant action apart from the caffeine content, but as they appear in European commerce, their action is indistinguishable from that of other caffeine drugs and Kola red is inert. Kola is also a valuable nervine, heart tonic, and a good general tonic.

  • METABOLISM BOOSTER: One of the unique effects of the kola nut, largely due to its caffeine content, is its ability to stimulate the body and increase heart rate. While this can potentially be dangerous for people who suffer from pre-existing heart conditions, it can provide a necessary metabolic boost for those with slow metabolisms. This can actually optimize heart health, as caffeine can be a health stimulant in moderate doses. This also helps the metabolism optimize itself, which has a wide range of positive enzymatic and physiological effects on the body.

  • CIRCULATION: By stimulating heart rate and increasing circulation, kola nuts are able to boost oxygenation to certain essential parts of the body, including the skin, extremities, organs, and even the brain. This is why kola nuts are sometimes referred to as cognitive boosters, as increased levels of oxygen in the brain have been connected with higher levels of cognition and concentration. Kola nuts were traditionally consumed because they "cleared the mind". This can also promote healing of wounds and cellular repair through the increased flow of oxygen and nutrients.

  • DIGESTION: For thousands of years, kola nuts have been chewed or consumed by indigenous cultures in Africa both in ceremonies and in the treatment of digestive upset. The active ingredients of the kola nut are able to improve digestion and nutrient uptake, while also reducing constipation, bloating, cramping, and other, more serious, gastrointestinal issues.

  • PROSTATE CANCER: Although research is still in its early stages and is still a matter of debate in some circles, Some of the phytoestrogens and phytoandrogens found in kola nuts are able to stimulate apoptosis in prostate cancer cells. This line of study is relatively new, but applications for other types of cancerous cells are also being explored.

  • IMMUNE SYSTEM HEALTH: The roots, stem, and leaves of the kola tree have been found to have volatile compounds that can prevent certain bacterial infections in the human body. These bacterial infections include those responsible for causing a wide range of respiratory illnesses, including bronchitis, meningitis, and tuberculosis. Kola nut extracts are available in most health stores, but the nuts themselves have not been directly connected to this medicinal benefit.

  • WEIGHT LOSS: Although caffeine has long been known as an appetite suppressant to a certain degree, kola nut extracts have also been connected with increased fat-burning in the body, possibly due to the positive impact on the metabolism that these important nuts can have. This can be an ideal option for those people who are trying to lose weight of improve the quality of their diet.





  • KOLA NUT DOSAGE INFORMATION

    The appropriate dose of Kola Nut depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. Generally, for ddults (18 years and older) the recommended daily dose for Kola Nut is 1 to 3 grams in the form of a decoction, liquid extract, or tincture.

    A liquid extract containing 2 to 6 grams of kola nut has been given by mouth daily. A tincture containing 10 to 30 grams Kola Nut nut has been given by mouth daily. A dosage is 10 to 40 drops of fluid extract.

    Powdered Kola Nut leaves, given in the form of a decoction made from boiling 1 to 2 teaspoons in 1 cup of water, have been taken by mouth three times daily.

    A liquid extract in a 1:1 solution of 60-percent alcohol has been taken by mouth three times daily. A tincture in a 1:5 solution of 60-percent alcohol containing 1 to 4 milliliters of powdered leaves has been taken by mouth three times daily.

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider.





    KOLA NUT SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS

    Kola Nuts contain caffeine, a nervous system stimulant. It is considered relatively safe when taken by mouth in medicinal amounts, short-term. Excessive use of caffeine can cause insomnia, nervousness, restlessness, stomach irritation, nausea, vomiting, increased heart rate and respiration, and other symptoms of excess caffeine intake. Exercise caution when using with other central nervous stimulants, including bronchodilators or adrenergic drugs.

    Consult a health practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing or on any medications. When Kola Nut is used medicinally in larger amounts or for a long period of time, it is considered possibly unsafe. Chewing Kola Nut is associated with an increased risk of mouth cancer and gastrointestinal cancer. Also, due to its caffeine content, large amounts of Kola Nut might cause headaches, anxiety, agitation, ringing in the ears, and irregular heartbeats. Stopping the use of caffeine suddenly can sometimes result in headaches, irritation, nervousness, anxiety and dizziness. Very high doses of caffeine can cause death. The fatal dose is estimated to be about 10 to 14 grams, that is 150 to 200 mg of caffeine per kilogram of body weight.

    SIDE EFFECTS

    Side effects include shaky hands, upset stomach, and insomnia, as caffeine is a powerful stimulant. Excessive use may cause gastro-intestinal upset and it should not be used for long periods of time. Consult a medical professional before pursuing an active Kola Nut addition to your dietary regimen.

  • Pregnancy & Breastfeeding: Kola Nut is possibly safe when consumed during pregnancy and breast-feeding in food amounts. But larger amounts are possibly unsafe, as larger doses might provide too much caffeine for both pregnant and breast-feeding women. Mothers should keep caffeine consumption below 200 mg per day. This is similar to the amount of caffeine found in about 2 cups of coffee. Consuming larger amounts during pregnancy might increase the chance of miscarriage, early delivery, and low birth weight. Caffeine passes into breast milk, so nursing mothers should closely monitor Kola Nut intake to make sure it is on the low side. Caffeine from Kola Nut can cause sleep disturbances, irritability, and increased bowel activity in breast-fed infants. It should not be used during pregnancy.

  • High Blood Pressure: The significant level of caffeine found in Kola Nut extracts and supplements can be a risk for those who already suffer with high blood pressure or a sensitivity to caffeine. The caffeine in Kola Nut might increase blood pressure in people with high blood pressure. Avoid if there is uncontrolled high blood pressure. However, this does not seem to occur in people who regularly consume Kola Nut or other products that contain caffeine.
