For centuries, guaraná seeds have been used by the tribe Saterê-Maué, indigenous natives of the Amazon Region, as a stimulant, remedie, beverage, and an antidote, among other purposes. Recently, in Western markets, the extract from the seeds of guaraná, is commonly used in high-energy foods and drinks and dietary supplements. However, a broad spectrum of medicinal activities is reported for P. cupana, ranging from stimulation of the central nervous system, in cases of physical or mental stress, to appetite suppression.

P. cupana has been used also in cosmetic preparations, and it has become a popular soft drink in Brazil.
