Ilex guayusa has an interesting profile. It contains caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline. These compounds have been shown to influence mood and energy levels.
Ilex guayusa has stimulating properties and can be taken as a substitute for coffee. The energy lasts longer and is often described to be more gentle than coffee.
We source Organic certified Ilex Guayusa from a Kichwa indigenous community in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
We use ultrasonic waves as an extraction method for our Ilex Guayusa essence. The extraction process is unique in that the plant material does not exceed temperatures higher than that of the human body. This enables our body to absorb the maximum amount of phytochemicals.
This Ilex guayusa Essence is a purified extract. Non-essential fats have been removed from the final product. By doing this additional step, we ensure a higher level of plant alkaloids.
Every bottle of this extract contains plant actives of about 2-3 its weight in dried plant material. That means that 1ML of extract contains about 3-4 grams of Ilex guayusa leaves.
