Yaupon: Benefits

Yaupon: The Beloved Plant

Why do you feel better after a delicious cup of yaupon? It’s jam-packed with some serious health-boosting properties:
  • Saponins

    A natural cleanser! Prevents absorption of fats for help with weight loss, boosts immune system, and helps regulate cholesterol levels. Pretty serious little workhorse.

  • Theobromine

    Found in chocolate, theobromine can elevate your mood, boost your mental energy, and is good for oral health. This handy little compound is also found in yaupon. So drink up for a better mood and brighter smile!

  • Rutin

    Another anti-inflammatory compound found in yaupon (and in delicious fruits like apple and lemon). Yaupon even has 4 times the amount of rutin as found in its popular cousin plant, guayusa.

  • Jitter-Free Energy

    Yaupon has a pretty unique energy. With smooth caffeine (we see about 25 mg per serving), the boost is augmented by theobromine and theacrine to give a mental boost. Some folks say it's caffeine without the anxiety!

  • Antioxidants

    If you wanna get specific on the type of antioxidants, we're working with chlorogenic acid. All the expected antioxidant benefits and helps slow release of glucose into the bloodstream after a meal!

  • Polyphenols & Flavanoids

    These are big names for two helpful compounds. Both have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of these properties, both compounds are chemo-preventative.
