The Coca and the Cola

Two shrubs, the coca and the cola, from South America and Africa respectively, supplied the main ingredients for many of our soft drinks and helping to stimulate pastifies. Their names have become household words in our daily language.

Since pre-Inca times the leaves of the coca plant (Erythroxylon coca), native to the mountainous regions of Peru and Bolivia, were chewed by the Indians as a stimulant and narcotic. The name is the Latinized form of the Peruvian name for the plant, cuca. The coca plant is the source of cocaine used since 1884 as a local surgical anesthetic. The dried nuts of the gurru or kola shrub (Cola acuniinata), native to the Sierra Leone and Guinea regions of western Africa, were highly valued in bygone times and used by the natives as money in local trading.

Cola nuts, a source of caffeine, were chewed as a stimulant making one insensible to fatigue and hunger, and were a potent supportive for intoxication and hangover. A stimulating brew called Coffee of Sudan, was made from the roasted and ground cola nuts. The name is the Latinized form of the native name of the plant, kola.

Today cola plants are grown extensively in Brazil and the West Indies to fill the growing demand of the international market for medical drugs. The narcotic coca leaves are no longer used in the manufacture of soft drinks. Other ingredients are now substituted for them and these provide equivalent stimulation without any harmful side effects.

Kola nut is a natural source of caffeine that helps stimulate metabolism and supresses the appetite. It can also be used as a stimulant to the central nervous system, aphrodisiac, cardiac stimulant, astringent, anti-depressant, diuretic and for sea-sickness, headaches, anorexia, nervous debility, weakness and diarrhea.

Kola nut, also spelled cola, is the seed of several types of evergreen trees that are native to West Africa. Kola nuts are used in making soft drinks. They contain the chemicals caffeine and theobromine, which have a mild, stimulating effect.

Kola nut trees reach heights of about 60 feet (18 meters). They have oblong, leathery leaves, yellow flowers, and star-shaped fruit. Each fruit contains several irregularly shaped, fleshy kola nuts. The color of the nuts can be either white or red. Kola nuts usually measure about 11/2 inches (3.8 centimeters) in length.

Many people in Africa chew kola nuts like gum. They call them guru or goora nuts. Kola nuts are grown in Asia, South America, western Africa, and the West Indies.

Kola Nut is also known as Kola, Cola, Guru Nut, Kola Nut.

• A central nervous system stimulant
• A natural source of caffeine
The nut of the kola (cola) plant - a tropical evergreen tree that can reach heights of 50 feet and more - is a familiar energizer in cola soft drinks. Actually, the nut gets its energy-generating powers from the same stimulant that launched thousands of coffee bars: caffeine.

Potential Health Benefits

Kola nut is used to banish mental and physical fatigue and increase concentration.

Scientific Evidence

The kola nut's caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, speeds up the heart, and acts as a diuretic. The nut and its preparations contain 1.5 percent caffeine and slight amounts of the asthma drug theobromine.

How to Use the Herb

Cola nuts are dried and powdered for traditional health use. Commission E approves these average daily doses: 2 - 6 grams of dried nut, 0.25 - 0.75 grams of cola extract, 2.5 - 7.5 grams of liquid extract, 10 - 30 grams of a liquid extract.



Cola Nut Tree
Cola acuminata (Pal.) Schott & Endl.

Family: Sterculiaceae.

Other Names: Colatier (French); Kolabaum (German); cola (Italian); cola (Spanish).

Description: Cola is a medium-sized tree (up to 15 m), with large leaves and yellow flowers in clusters. The nuts are borne in large, multi-seeded follicles. Another important commercial species is Cola nitida (previously known as C. vera). It differs from C. acuminata in having narrower leaves and larger flowers, which are pale yellow streaked with purple. The seeds of C. acuminata are split into about four irregular pieces of endosperm when the seed coat is removed, while those of C. nitida split in two.

Origin: West Africa (Nigeria and Sierra Leone to Gabon); cultivation in tropical America and Asia.

Parts Used: Seeds or nuts (Colae semen), with the seed coat or testa removed.

Therapeutic Category: Stimulant.

Uses and Properties: Cola seeds can be used to help support mental and physical fatigue. Extracts are included in various energy drinks and give the user a short-term energy boost. The fresh seeds are traditionally chewed for their stimulating and tonic effects. They are also astringent and said to be useful in supporting diarrhoea, wounds and inflammations.

Active Ingredients: The main compound is the purine alkaloid caffeine (1.5-3%) that co-occurs with much smaller amounts of theobromine. Also present are phenolics (4-6%) such as catechin, epicatechin and procyariidins, that can complex the purine alkaloids.

Health Effects: Cola nuts are similar in their effect to other caffeine-containing products such as coffee, tea, guarana and maté. They have a stimulant effect of the central nervous system and the heart. Animal experiments indicate, too, that cola nuts have analeptic and lipolytic properties, and that they stimulate the secretion of gastric juices. In human studies, cola nuts have shown positive chronotropic and weak diuretic effects.

Status: Traditional health; Comm. E+.

Preparation and Dosage: The daily dose is 2 - 6 g of cola nut, taken as extract or liquid extract. It has been traditionally used in cola drinks but artificial flavours are currently used.

Kola nut is a natural source of caffeine that helps stimulate metabolism and supresses the appetite. It can also be used as a stimulant to the central nervous system, aphrodisiac, cardiac stimulant, astringent, anti-depressant, diuretic and for sea-sickness, headaches, anorexia, nervous debility, weakness and diarrhea.

Kola Nut is also known as Kola, Cola, Guru Nut, Kola Nut.

Dosage: 1-3 grams; of the liquid extract 5-15 drops.

Bitter kola nut seeds (or cola nut, or guru nut) affect the kidney-adrenals, the heart, and the liver. It acts as a stimulant, diuretic, cardiac tonic, antimelancholy, and an astringent, making useful for the potential to help support symptoms of health complaints or symptoms such as tiredness, fatigue, and melancholy. The stimulative effect is due the presence of caffeine (up to 2.5%) and kola nut also contains theobronine, tannins, phenolics, coloring matter, betaine, protein, and starch.

The active ingredient in kola nut is caffeine. It is used both for its stimulating action and its flavor and color in various soft drinks. Its use for melancholy and fatigue, therefore, is purely symptomatic. A continual reliance on such symptomatic products as this and others such as coffee or tea (Camellia sinensis) for tiredness and fatigue is bound to deplete further the body's reserves, setting one up for more serious degenerative complaints. Fatigue and tiredness usually have a cause that should be discovered and addressed at a deeper level with diet, herbs and appropriate physiotherapy and lifestyle adjustments.
