What’s the Problem with Coffee?
When consumed in moderation, coffee is believed to be a safe and healthy drink. But has your love affair with coffee gone a little too far? Are your cravings and withdrawals taking over?
Excess coffee consumption can cause:

Introducing Guayusa Tea, A Natural Coffee Substitute From The Amazon
Guayusa leaves are harvested from the Holly Tree in the Ecuadorian Amazon – offering a boost of natural, clean energy. Unlike coffee that gives you the jitters and crash, Guayusa offers slow-release energy over 4 – 6 hours. It’s a cleaner, gentler way to start your day.
So, how does Guayusa do it?
Our Guayusa contains less caffeine than coffee, but more than black tea. But Guayusa isn’t just revered for its caffeine content – it’s incredibly rich in antioxidants and other nutrients.
It contains an impressive array of amino acids, including L-theanine, which helps contribute to mood, concentration, memory and slow-release energy. Guayusa also contains a compound called Theobromine, which has similar effects to caffeine only milder and longer lasting.
But beyond it’s energising properties, here are some other reasons why we love Guayusa:
- Rich in antioxidants and amino acids which help to boost overall wellbeing
- May help to control blood sugar and diabetes
- Has been known to aid digestion and weight loss
- Can boost immunity and cardiovascular health
- A deliciously smooth taste (without the bitterness you get in coffee or tea)
- Doesn’t stain your teeth like coffee
- Guayusa is a sustainable alternative to the coffee bean
