Kola nut comes from an evergreen tree that is native to Africa and is a member of the mallow family. In African culture, the kola nut is of great social significance and is considered an honor to be presented with kola nuts as a gift. The nuts are also frequently used as currency or as talismans for spiritual protection and even as an aphrodesiac. In addition to a variety of beverages, kola nuts are made into stimulatory tonics.
In the west, the nuts are best known as the key ingredient in the original Coca-Cola soft drink formula. Because of the psychoactive effects of colanine present in the seeds, the formula has been modified to exclude this substance. Kola nut caffeine compounds are still used in the pharmaceutical industry formulas for nausea and migraine.
- Blend with arrowroot powder to make natural foundation or bronzer.
- Add to teas, cereals or smoothies.
Kola nut has a stimulatory effect due to caffeine alkaloids and may not be suitable for people with high blood pressure or heart disease.
