Guayaki - Organic Energy Shot Lime Tangerine - 2 oz. (59mL)

Guayaki Organic Energy Shot Lime Tangerine is a blend of all natural superfood extracts that will give you the energy you need to meet today's stresses and demands. Guayaki Energy Shots are fueled by yerba mate's naturally uplifting, healthy, and nourishing properties. They provide quick, clean energy in a convenient, portable bottle, with no jitters, crash, or running to the bathroom. 

Guayaki's Yerba Mate is a tribute to South America's Aché Guayakí (gwy-uh-kee) tribe and their legendary beverage. For centuries, the Aché Guayakí have made yerba mate (yer-bah mah-tay) from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree (Ilex paraguariensis) and sipped it daily from a traditional gourd for its powerful rejuvenative effects. These rainforest people find tremendous invigoration, focus, and nourishment in yerba mate and revere it as the "drink of the gods". Guayakí Yerba Mate is brought to you from the traditions of South America and presented in an easy, conventional way.

The icon for yerba mate is the unique gourd from which it is consumed and shared, the Mate Gourd. “Yerba” means herb. “Mate” is derived from the quichua word, "matí," which is the name of the gourd (Lagenaria vulgaris) traditionally used to drink yerba mate. So, literally, yerba mate means “herb cup”.

What Is Yerba Mate?

Yerba Mate has the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate all in one beverage. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa, and guarana - yerba mate triumphs as the most balanced, delivering both energy and nutrition. The leaves of the rainforest mate tree naturally contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, abundant antioxidants. In fact, The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society in 1964 concluded "it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate in nutritional value" and that yerba mate contains "practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life."

Yerba mate contains caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine, well-known stimulants also found in tea, coffee, and chocolate. The caffeine content varies between that of green tea and coffee. Unlike tea, yerba mate has a low tannin content so it can be strong like coffee with out becoming extremely bitter. Unlike coffee, yerba mate is not oily and acid forming, so it is less likely to cause stomach acid and jitters. And, best of all, theobromine is the component in chocolate that makes you feel like you are in love.

Yerba mate is the national drink of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Southern Brazil where it is consumed 6 to 1 over coffee. In Argentina, over 90% of the people drink yerba mate with a gourd and bombilla (metal or bamboo straw).


More Nutritious than Green Tea

Yerba mate has been used as a base for herbal medicines in South America for centuries, and the plant’s benefits and therapeutic properties have been verified by a number of scientific studies. The chemical components of yerba mate are similar to those found in green tea; however, yerba mate is more nutritious than green tea. Yerba mate is an antioxidant powerhouse!

While yerba mate and green tea share many of the same benefits, (antioxidants, polyphenols, flavenoids, bioflavenoids, and theophylline) modern science shows that yerba mate has more active compounds than green tea, 52 to be exact. Yerba mate boasts an impressive 196 active compounds as compared to the 144 found in green tea. In fact, yerba mate has higher polyphenol and antioxidant counts than both green and black teas.
 
Technically, green tea is the Camellia sinensis plant, and is immediatly flash heated after being picked, and is not fermented or roasted. Healthwise, green teas are superior to oolong and black teas, as many of the beneficial antioxidant compounds are protected by the green tea production process. Black teas may taste sweeter because they are fermented and then roasted whereby the sugars carmelize, but this flavor comes at the expense of its antioxidant qualities. Yerba mate, is processed much like a green tea, but is not "green tea".

Yerba Mate Contains:

  • Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex
  • Minerals: Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc
  • Additional Compounds: Carotene, Fatty Acids, Chlorophyll, Flavonols, Polyphenols, Inositol, Trace Minerals, Antioxidants, Tannins, Pantothenic Acid, & 15 Amino Acids
  • Theophylline, Theobromine, & Caffeine


Growing, Harvesting, Processing

Uniquely grown in its native forest environment, Guayaki Yerba Mate is cherished as a sacred beverage. Like high quality coffee, high quality yerba mate is shade-grown, in the rich ecosystem of the rainforest; delivering more flavor and nutritional value. Sheltered from direct sunlight,which can burn the leaves and make them bitter, rainforest grown yerba mate leaves are dark, emerald green and teeming with nutrients and flavor.

The typical commercial way of growing yerba mate in South America is clearing fertile lands to get full direct sunshine on the plants, which makes them grow faster. It's a mono-cultivation practice, which wears the soil out and reduces its productivity year after year.

Guayaki cultivates under native trees in forested areas. The yerba mate seeds are planted in fertile soils and are grown in the shade of the taller trees. Their yields are smaller with cultivation under native woods - up to 40% less product than the sun style cultivation, but it yields a much higher quality product, is more sustainable long term, and creates a habitat for bird and mammal species.

They also work with some farmers who have some partial shade cultivations and want to be more sustainable. Once a farmer partners with Guayaki, they provide technical advice on how to collect seeds and create nurseries, help them manage the organic growing process from cultivation through harvest, and then buy their shade grown mate.

Guayaki Yerba Mate is a work of art. Crafted like a fine wine, it is grown, harvested, and dried according to time honored traditions. Harvested from the lush subtropical forest, Guayakí hand-picks only the leaves and tender stems. After passing through a flash heating process to protect the antioxidants and nutritional properties, the mate is dried at low-temperatures. Finally, the mate is aged for one year in cedar chambers for a smooth, rich and balanced flavor. 

The “whole plant - whole energy” approach is used in Guayakí's products. By combining the leaves and tender stems, they are able to produce a yerba mate with a unique, full-flavor and balanced energy. The tender stems add a light sweetness and contain more of the euphoriating effects of the theobromine.

Healthy, Safe Processing Methods
Guayaki actively researches and is confident that Yerba Mate itself is not detrimental to your health. There are some commercial processing methods which could be a health concern if not minimized, such as smoke drying the leaves which introduces carcinogens. Guayaki is committed to healthy processing and uses safe methods such as air drying. If you have any questions or concerns, they welcome you to contact them or visit their website for further information.


The Guayaki Story
Guayaki is working to make organic, fair-trade yerba mate the mainstream energy source of choice and prove that a company can be profitable while operating sustainably. They are an organization of individuals whose daily work is to bring you the finest yerba mate on the planet. They started in 1996 with a vision of protecting and restoring the South American rainforests and empowering the native forest people, and with your help, they are achieving that goal, sip by sip. Here is the story of their humble beginning.

In 1996, Guayaki was seeded in California's central coast by two university buddies. Alex Pryor from Buenos Aires, and David Karr from Northern California. As good friends and passionate yerba mate drinkers, David and Alex set out to share the yerba mate plant with the world, recognizing that people were in need of a nourishing source of energy and a healthy dose of optimism. As good fortune would have it, co-founders Alex and David were swiftly joined by three other pioneering partners to round out the original founding seed group: don Miguel aka the “The Journeyman”, Steven Karr aka “Shape-Shifter”, and Christopher Mann aka “The Chairman of the Gourd”. These five ambitious friends aka the “semillas” (seeds) channeled their activist mentality into the creation of a new restorative business model, calling consumers to action by voting with their dollars.

The Semillas rooted themselves in fertile grounds of San Luis Obispo, CA, nestled comfortably between scenic Santa Barbara and magical Big Sur.  This coastline, riddled with good surf breaks, provided the perfect backdrop for many extended mate gourd sessions while looking for surf. As passionate lifestylers, the Semillas group was intimately committed to a holistic lifestyle and business practice which was philosophically aligned with their love for nature, adventure, and spirit.


In a blend of the West coast pioneer spirit and Argentine hospitality, the inspired band of Semillas took to the road to share mate with all those who would listen. Rooted in the central coast, hours from any major city, road warriorship became Guayakí's destiny. Traveling in a mix of VW vans, pickups, and RV’s, David, Steven, and don Miguel took the wheel in the one hand and the mate gourd in the other, to the four corners of United States. With a strong brew of mate, good tunes, flowers, and genuine hospitality, the Semillas encouraged keen samplers to develop a relationship with the yerba mate plant.

Growing up, they always heard “money does not grow on trees.” Well, today they are proving that “money does grow on trees” and rainforest-grown yerba mate is the new green currency. It provides the peoples of the rainforest with income as well as the ability to steward their land.
