Runa Guayusa Teas Energize Hollywood

Runa Amazon Guayusa Teas Energize Hollywood…Naturally
(from a press release)

Runa Amazon Guayusa (why-U-sa) made the trek from the Rainforests of Ecuador to Beverly Hills last weekend to share the benefits of delicious and natural sustained energy to Hollywood celebrities as they prepare for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Award Show.

For centuries, drinking Guayusa has been a cultural tradition to the indigenous people of Ecuador, as the rich flavor is the centerpiece for gatherings of friends and families sharing stories, dreams, and aspirations while drinking guayusa from a communal pot. Guayusa contains slightly more caffeine than black tea, and contains theobromine, which offers the uplifted and bodily energy found in dark chocolate. With greater antioxidant potential than Vitamin C and twice the antioxidants of green tea, guayusa offers clarity, alertness, and what the indigenous people call “mental strength and courage.”

Runa Amazon Guayusa has married this ancient herb with delicious and satisfying flavors that are the perfect accompaniment to anything and everything on a busy celebrity’s to-do list. There is a zesty Ginger Citrus blend to get you moving with an invigorating twist of ginger and citrus flavors; Peppermint helps you to cool down and warm up; Guayusa Spice is an Amazonian blend of energizing guayusa with full-bodied cinnamon and aromatic lemongrass as the perfect afternoon treat; and Traditional Guayusa is smooth and rich with a hint of sweetness to help you stay awake through even the longest running awards show.

Gifts for lovers of tea with free wrapping of all items.

I'm encouraged to see this new caffeinated herbal drink, Guayusa, become more available in the United States. Although I'm primarily a tea-drinker, I like the diversification of natural caffeinated drinks. I'm eager to try Guayusa and compare it to the closely-related Yerba mate.

However, I want to express a slight skepticism to the claims here about the health potential of this new herb. Many companies are guilty of exaggerating health claims surrounding their products.

I think it's best to leave discussion of health, including the funding, carrying out, reviews, and citing of studies, to truly independent parties: I generally do not trust any health claim coming out of a press-release from a company selling or promoting a product.
