The Easy Daily Ritual to Drink
Guayusa is treasured for its unique balance of caffeine, antioxidants, amino acids*, vitamins, and packs an incredible burst of energy. It contains close to the amount of caffeine found in coffee and twice the amount of antioxidants and amino acids found in green tea. Naturally smooth and never bitter, with a rich, earthy aroma and a slightly sweet finish, steeped in over 2000 years of Amazonian tradition. Merkabody Guayusa provides balanced energy without the jitters or the sudden crash commonly associated with caffeinated drinks. Its catechins and l-theanine provide a slow release of caffeine for a calm alertness and sustainable energy, while its theophylline improves energy utilization and opens up airways and its theo-bromine dilates blood vessels, assisting in blood pressure regulation. The many chlorogenic acids assist with weight loss and aid in digestion while another certain amino acid produces dopamine, a perfect combination for relaxation and mental clarity. Other minerals and vitamin include essential nutrients, magnesium, potassium, zinc, chromium, calcium, and vitamin D & C. Merkabody Guayusa is grown on small family farms and hand-picked from the rich soil under the canopy of the Amazon Rainforest. The unique trait about Traditional Guayusa is it promotes protection of the rainforest due to the unique way it is grown in 'forest gardens' that require natural forest shade and biodiverse jungle life to thrive. You are supporting the protection of the rainforest and these families when you choose to indulge your body with this healthy beverage.
