Runa produces and markets beverages made from Guayusa (gwhy-you-sah), a native Amazonian tree leaf that indigenous people in the Ecuadorian Amazon have brewed like tea for thousands of years. Guayusa offers a clear, focused energy by balancing as much caffeine as one cup of coffee with twice the antioxidants of green tea, the company says. Unlike traditional teas, it contains no tannins, and is naturally sweetened with a touch of Fair Trade and Organic Cane sugar resulting in 50 calories per bottle. Runa is committed to sustainable social and business practices: guayusa is grown exclusively by indigenous farming families in traditional agroforestry plots on ancestral lands. All of its products are certified Fair Trade and USDA Organic, fresh brewed, and all-natural.
