The objective of this study was to assess the level of consumption of Garcinia kola and Cola nitida in the Abidjanese population and band place and to investigate the expected effects of the ingestion of our two species on human behaviour. A comparative study between the consumption levels of Garcinia kola and Cola nitida was carried out using a survey carried out from September to December 2015 in two municipalities in Abidjan (Abobo and Cocody) and Sikensi. The data make it possible to identify 1287 men and 513 women in a population of 1800 people, divided into three classes according to age. Age group A1, from 18 to 35 years old; age group A2, from 36 to 55 years old and age group A3 whose age exceeds 56 years old, it appears that the majority of subjects prefer to consume Garcinia kola (62.17 %) at the expense of Cola nitida (29.17 %). The reasons for consuming Garcinia kola and Cola nitida are respectively pain relief (56 %), the Aphrodisiac effect (25.17 %), the fight against fatigue (13.17 %) and curiosity (5.66 %). The satisfaction of the desired effects of human consumption of Garcinia kola and Cola nitida remains very high (78.17 %). This study has shown that Garcinia kola and Cola nitida have actions on human behaviour, which is why it is desirable to look for the neurophysiological actions of Garcinia kola and/or Cola nitida on pain, fatigue and the aphrodisiac component in order to control the dose to be consumed.
