The kola nuts found in African country’s plants more. In that country kola nut was widely used as source of carbonated sodas and caffeine. According to different healthline report Coca-Cola Co still makes use of kola nuts as one of the ingredients in few of their products. This plant is no majorly used for dietary supplements in weight loss.
Recently, I realized that most of the Africans have never seen a kola nut. Because being in United States it’s obvious for a person to use all extracted products and neatly packed. All most everything around here is processed, cleaned, extracted and neatly packed in bottles or any vessels.
