What is Guayusa?
Yerba Mate vs. Guayusa
Guayusa and Yerba Mate are both made from leaves of a type of Holly Tree, but they are actually quite different. While Yerba Mate is popular in several South American countries, Guayusa grows in the Amazon Rainforest and is lesser known across the world. Guayusa is nutrient dense, rich in amino acids, and high in antioxidants.  
Benefits of Drinking Guayusa
When drinking Guayusa, you may notice your energy levels rising, along with a feeling of relaxation. This is because the caffeine in Guayusa is counterbalanced by the amino acid, L-theanine, which moderates the release of caffeine so you don't get the spike associated with coffee consumption.

L-theanine also promotes cognitive function, increases mental alertness, boosts immunity, helps to reduce anxiety and boosts mood. 

Drinking Guayusa regularly may promote longevity, as Guayusa has twice the amount of antioxidants as green tea. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which cause premature aging and disease. Guayusa is also an anti-inflammatory and promotes healthy digestion.
