Mundo Verde, Rio de Janeiro

Mundo Verde, Rio de Janeiro

What to buy here: GUARANA PRODUCTS: If you need an energy booster to cope with an action-packed holiday in Brazil, guarana is the answer. Not the soda drink you can get from any bar (although it is delicious), but the fruit and its derivatives which pack the double amount of caffeine compared with coffee beans. For this reason, guarana is a staple of health food stores where you can buy seeds that can be sucked on. It is also available as tincture, stick, punch mix, extract powder and even chewing gum. The plant has an important place in Brazilian indigenous culture, especially amongst the Tupi and Guarani peoples. The latter would make tea out of it by shelling, washing and drying the seeds. After that they would pound them into fine powder. Mundo Verde is health food chain that sells guarana products. One of the largest health food retailers, you can even find guarana pills (combined with açai berry), recommended to fight fatigue and raise energy levels. It has several branches in Rio including one on Ave Copacabana.

Prices start at $15.
