Category - Kigelia Africana [Sausage Tree]

Sausage Tree [Kigelia Africana] can be found in some pre-workout supplements as a stimulant. This may be due to one animal study that reported Kigelia Africana may be potential central nervous system stimulant. However, no clinical trials are to be found. Compared to caffein, sausage tree bark extract gave a shorter duration of sleeping time, indicating better stimulant properties. Another potentially beneficial effect for athletic performance is its analgesic [or painkiller] effect. Kigelia Africana was also reported to have antimicrobial as well as antioxidant effect.
