Stop drinking energy drinks full of chemicals and ultra-high doses of caffeine! Get a buzz and detox at the same time!
- Guayusa, contains 50% more anti-oxidants than green tea.
- Guayusa leaf tea and Guayusa leaf extract contain about 90 mg of caffeine/ 8 oz cup making it the second most caffeinated plant on earth next to coffee but with many more health benefits.
The biggest benefit is the synergistic effects of Guayusa’s unique blend of Theobromine (also found in high quantities in dark chocolate), vitamins C and D, essential minerals Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc, Chormium, caffeine and all 15 essential amino acids (most importantly Leucine, which is not synthesized in our bodies and is needed to repair and build muscle tissue).
This blend produces a smooth, sustained energy without the crash and jitters often associated with other caffeinated drinks.
Guayusa has been found to balance the body’s pH and blood sugar levels, detoxify the blood, improve the functioning of the kidneys and urinary tract, and improve digestion and elimination while strengthening the lungs.
