Guayusa the natural fitness drink

Boosters here, shots and powders there. It goes without saying that energizers, like iso-drinks, are part of the fitness equipment, just like headphones with motivational music are now!
But what is actually in these fitness drinks that can often be bought as boosters or iso drinks? One would have to think, who uses them also knows about it? But that's not the case! Therefore, at this point we would like to go into the most common ingredients and take a close look at their effects.


The sweetener belongs to the group of carbohydrates and is often used to gain weight. It only has a low sweetening power but high energy density! The sugar compound is quickly absorbed through the intestinal wall and thus enters the cells.


The fructose comes from fruits, as you might expect, but can also be found in honey. It's twice as sweet as glucose but doesn't spike blood sugar as much, so the glycemic index is lower. In higher amounts, fructose causes gastrointestinal problems and is linked to obesity and gout. Here, however, a clear distinction must be made between natural foods, i.e. bananas, apples, etc., and the extracted, pure form! There is no evidence that fruits and vegetables cause such health problems.


A material that cannot be ignored. Our brain alone consumes up to 140 g a day dextrose . Dextrose is also called dextrose or glucose. It can be found in fruits, honey, but also in pasta and potatoes. So it's a carbohydrate that the body naturally gets from pretty much all foods.

The big problem with pure glucose is that it causes blood sugar to spike and crash again just as quickly. Of course, this is a big problem if you want to bring power to your training in the long term.


This Sugar is used most frequently in German households and is also used in all kinds of confectionery. Sucrose is also known as simple table sugar or beet sugar. It is linked to obesity, tooth decay, and even atherosclerosis and heart attacks.


This Sweetener , which is mostly derived from the waste from the corn industry, is linked to a variety of diseases. These include allergies, rheumatism and Crohn's disease to psoriasis.

In many cases there are even several of these sweeteners in so-called sports drinks. So if you do sports and want to do something good for yourself with a fitness drink, you will consume more counterproductive substances than productive substances when choosing a conventional sports drink. However, the drinks usually also contain minerals to compensate for the loss during long training sessions of more than one hour to balance. These usually include:


In addition to its function for bones and teeth, magnesium is also important for muscle contraction. Our probably most important muscle is the heart muscle, which of course also comes under pressure to perform during sport. Magnesium also plays a role in the function of our nervous system and in protein synthesis.
However, magnesium cannot bring the muscles beyond the existing capacity of the muscles. An increase is therefore impossible, but without it it is not possible!


Calcium (calcium) is even more important for our bones. A lack of calcium can cause our bones to become porous. In the worst case, osteoporosis occurs. Contrary to popular belief, the calcium from dairy products does not help our body, but rather harms it. Vegetable calcium, on the other hand, can be easily absorbed by the body as long as we have enough vitamin D in our body, which our body produces with the help of solar radiation.


Many drinks are fortified with vitamins, which, for example, improve the absorption of calcium. These vitamins are in or usually synthesized.


Salts also play an important role in sports, because we excrete them through sweat. For very long training sessions, it is therefore important to refresh the minerals during training.

We see mineral and vitamin supplements as less problematic, although there are also studies here that show that the consumption of artificial vitamins in the long term ensures that natural vitamins are absorbed less well or not at all by the body.


Guayusa is becoming increasingly popular among athletes. Why? A Guayusa drink naturally contains minerals and vitamins, as well as all the essential amino acids and increases physical performance with theobromine, theophylline and caffeine.

Unlike regular green tea or coffee, Guayusa brings a long-lasting and energizing feeling. Guayusa should therefore be an essential training companion for people with an affinity for sports who want to have quick and long-term success.
