Celebrities Discover Ancient Amazonian Guayusa
Actress Jacki Weaver Discovers Runa Amazon Guayusa
(Beverly Hills, CA) – January 20, 2011 – Runa Amazon Guayusa (why-U-sa) made the trek from the Rainforests of Ecuador to Beverly Hills last weekend to share the benefits of delicious and natural sustained energy to Hollywood celebrities as they prepare for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Award Show.
For centuries, drinking Guayusa has been a cultural tradition to the indigenous people of Ecuador, as the rich flavor is the centerpiece for gatherings of friends and families sharing stories, dreams, and aspirations while drinking guayusa from a communal pot. Guayusa contains slightly more caffeine than black tea, and contains theobromine, which offers the uplifted and bodily energy found in dark chocolate. With greater antioxidant potential than Vitamin C and twice the antioxidants of green tea, guayusa offers clarity, alertness, and what the indigenous people call “mental strength and courage.”
Runa Amazon Guayusa has married this ancient herb with delicious and satisfying flavors that are the perfect accompaniment to anything and everything on a busy celebrity’s to-do list. There is a zesty Ginger Citrus blend to get you moving with an invigorating twist of ginger and citrus flavors; Peppermint helps you to cool down and warm up; Guayusa Spice is an Amazonian blend of energizing guayusa with full-bodied cinnamon and aromatic lemongrass as the perfect afternoon treat; and Traditional Guayusa is smooth and rich with a hint of sweetness to help you stay awake through even the longest running awards show.
