Yes and no. The Guayusa we buy from our supplier is certified organic. However our facility in the UK has not been certified organic. This is a rather expensive cost that we cannot yet afford. We cannot legally identify our product as organic until our facility is certified as so. Thank you for understanding.

No. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Can pregnant women drink it?

We suggest consulting your medical adviser. Because of its high caffeine content, we still won’t recommend it to children, pregnant women and persons sensitive to caffeine.

Can someone with high blood pressure drink Guayusa?

We are not medical professionals, so bear that in mind. There have been no direct studies on Guayusa and blood pressure, however there are high chances it actually works to decrease your blood pressure. Even though caffeine is normally associated with short and temporary increases in blood pressure. The caffeine in Guayusa in combined with an amino acid called L-theanine (also found on green tea). Studies combining L-theanine and caffeine found that overall effects were decreased blood pressure.

What’s more, Guayusa contains high quantities of two other methyxanthenes (the first being caffeine): theobromine and theophylline. These have such effects like widening arteries to improve blood flow and improving heart efficiency.

That, and the high quantity of heart healthy chlorogenic acids makes us quite confident that anyone with a heart problem or high blood pressure can safely drink Guayusa. However, to be safe, we would try small amount first and monitor the effects.
