The powerful properties of the Ilex guayusa plants have been known to the Amazonian tribes of Ecuador for centuries. Why then, is not everyone familiar with the benefits it possesses, especially compared to coffee? When we designed our natural energy drink Nightwatch, we compared the different kinds of caffeine and discovered the advantages of guayusa caffeine.
The caffeine in guayusa is being released differently into your body than the caffeine in coffee is. This is because of the amino acid L-theanine. Instead of inserting the caffeine all at once, it releases it slowly over time. Therefore, it prevents the highs and lows connected to drinking coffee and the so-called coffee crash.
