Frequently Asked Questions
Native to the Ecuadorian Amazon, Guayusa is a super leaf rich in caffeine and antioxidants that offers a healthy alternative to traditional sources of caffeine. Its unique biological makeup of caffeine and polyphenols allows the brewed guayusa leaf to provide sustained energy, mental clarity, and focus without causing jitters or crash. Used as a key ingredient, Guayusa offers as much caffeine as coffee and double the antioxidants of green tea per serving omitting the bitter after-taste associated with some tea leaves.
Polyphenols are a type of antioxidant that help protect the body against oxidative stress. This protective effect is essential to healthy aging and helps reduce the risks of various forms of illness. Guayusa is a potent source of antioxidants. Its quantity found in brewed Guayusa is only surpassed by raw cacao powder!
Guayusa is grown almost exclusively in the upper Amazon region of Ecuador, where the Andes Mountains meet the Amazon rainforest. This area is known to be one of the most biodiverse regions in the world.
