From Sunfood

hose looking for a healthier alternative to coffee will be delighted to learn about Guayusa (pronounced WHY-YOU-SUH). Guayusa (Ilex guayusa)is a unique member of the holly family and grows in the mountains of Ecuador where the Andes meet the Amazon.

Communities throughout the Amazon have used guayusa for thousands of years as a delicious source of natural energy and nutrition. Guayusa’s unique balance of caffeine, antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids makes it perpetually central to morning rituals throughout the Amazon.

Guayusa contains a diverse combination of both energizing and healthful compounds. It contains less caffeine than coffee and more antioxidants and polyphenols than green tea. Plus guayusa boasts an impressive array of vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

This unique balance of elements creates a balanced energy, without the crashes or jitters caused by other brews. Unlike its cousin, yerba mate, guayusa does not contain tannic acid which gives mate its bitter aftertaste.
