Ever wanted to drink something that was just as stimulating as coffee but even healthier than green tea? Look no further. Guayusa comes from the dried leaves of the ancient and revered Guayusa tree in the South American rainforest. And it’s a marvel in a cup.
I’m sure that a lot of you like the taste of coffee and its stimulating effect. I do too. But the fact is, coffee is irritating to the stomach’s inner lining. It’s also hard on the liver. Tea, on the other hand, and especially green tea, contains L-theanine, a compound that has stimulating properties similar to those of caffeine. But it’s not exactly like caffeine. Green tea is also great because of its antioxidative property. It’s healthy for the heart and the cardiovascular system. But Guayusa takes tea to the next level.
Guayusa’s caffeine content is similar to light roast coffee. It also contains theobromine, the compound found in dark chocolate that makes us feel good. L-theanine, also found in green tea, adds to Guayusa’s stimulatory effect. Guayusa contains twice as many antioxidants as green tea. This tea has been consumed by the native peoples of South America for millennia. Its stimulating effect is prolonged but without the crash of coffee— and it won’t irritate your stomach’s lining. Because of its antioxidant content, it is very healthy and easy on the liver. So – we’ve got all of the benefits of coffee with none of the harm. And Guayusa is actually twice as healthy as green tea. Can you ask for anything more? Enjoy your cup of rainforest goodness today.
