“Similar to yerba mate, guayusa is an all-natural energy supplement derived from a plant,” says The Daily Meal special contributor Fabiana Santana in a piece on healthy alternatives to energy drinks. “Indigenous cultures in Ecuador and Colombia traditionally drank guayusa from a gourd as part of an early morning ritual. Guayusa has as much caffeine as coffee, but it is also rich in antioxidants and chlorogenic acids, which benefit the heart.”
Looking for a great boost of clean energy from guayusa leaves? Try one of Runa’s Clean Energy Drinks. These beverages benefit from containing antioxidants, L-theanine, polyphenols,flavonoids, and chlorogenic acid. With no sugar added, low-calorie and lightly sweetened, and zero calorie options, Runa produces an alternative (and hydrating and healthy) caffeine source for everyone.
