Why organic crops are healthier than their non-organic comparators
There are different studies that compare organic and non-organic crops. At Nightwatch we have explicitly chosen to only harvest organically when it comes to our main ingredient, the guayusa plant. In this blog, we will explain to you why.

The effect of Guayusa during a workout
As an athlete you want to make sure you take in the best nutrients possible for your body.

When you consume the right kind of caffeine, you will experience long lasting energy, without highs or lows. This is why the caffeine that can be found in guayusa, is the perfect ingredient for athletes.
The difference between Nightwatch’ all-natural energy drink and a sports drink
Both starters in the gym and pro’s know: to work out, you need energy. And to get energised, there are loads of options. The first is very simple: you should get a good night's rest. It makes all the difference in the world when you get out of bed and you’ve had your 8 hours of carefree sleep.
Second of all you have to eat healthy. You are what you eat, so you want to eat as natural and varied as possible. And then -of course- there are drinks to help you get energised when needed. Question is: are there better and worse ingredients in these energy drinks? At Nightwatch we investigated different pros and cons.

A plant based diet is a key to the counteraction of climate change
Plant based food isn't something everybody's gotten used to yet but it might be the key to counteract the fast changing climate. When we at Nightwatch talk about energy, we talk about the positive sides of it. But when you take too much energy out of something, it might be depleted. As we keep on doing our part in this counteraction, let us talk about it.
What can we do while combating litter?
In response to an article by the NOS, we find it important to talk to you about the reduction of litter. Our population is growing everyday, aswell as the amount of trash that we produce.
