The guayusa (Ilex guayusa) is a tree native to the Amazon jungle, whose loose leaves and powder are used to prepare infusions, mainly medicinal.
It is a great source of antioxidants and energy, and a great alternative to replacing coffee. Unlike other sources, the caffeine of the guayusa is distributed evenly in the body avoiding adverse effects such as nervous system disorders. In addition, it has theobromine that acts as a diuretic thus achieving the reduction of blood pressure.
