Nightwatch versus coffee

Nightwatch versus coffee

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. 


Focus, mental state and nutrients.

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. 

Guayusa also contains the alkaloids theobromine and theophylline which are properties that increase your ability to focus and raise your energy levels. Thus, Nightwatch doesn’t only improve your energy physically, but also mentally. Besides the alkaloids, the amino acids also improve your mental state and thereby help you relax. Plus, they contain a large number of nutrients.


Antioxidants and your immune system

Antioxidants are very important and an ingredient of coffee. Guayusa on the other hand, contains more antioxidants than coffee and other drinks. While green tea is known for its antioxidants guayusa contains even more. The antioxidants foster the immune system and help you get rid of all the damage alcohol, smoking or bad food can do to your cells. 

Last but not least, coffee gives you really bad teeth and guayusa does not. Coffee, just like tea and red wine, contains tannins that change the color of your teeth. Unlike coffee, guayusa will actually rectify the state of your dental hygiene because of its level of antioxidants.
