Kola Nut

Kola Nut -

A brownish bitter seed or nut, about the size of a chestnut when fully matured, growing in pods, bean style, on a small West African tree. It is credited by the natives with the property of allaying thirst and promoting energy. It is also said to be efficacious in purifying water and in counteracting the effects of over-indulgence in intoxicating liquors. Analysis shows that the Kola Nut contains from two to three times as much caffeine as the coffee bean and it is for this stimulating property that it is principally used commercially in extracts, tonic beverages, etc.
