Why You’ll Love It

Clean energy—you’ve heard of it for your car, but what does it mean for your body? In the case of Runa, it means caffeine sourced from healthful, organic plants without added stimulants or sugar. Runa taps into the latest wonder from the jungle: the guayusa plant. Grown almost exclusively in the upper Amazon region of Ecuador, the leaves of this plant have been brewed and consumed for centuries by the indigenous Kichwa people for mental strength and increased focus. That’s because guayusa contains more antioxidants than green tea and boasts a caffeine content similar to coffee but without the jittery, adrenal-busting side effects. The result is sustained and focused energy—delivered here in a sparkling, slightly sweet berry-flavored drink.

We also saw how development projects implemented by NGOs often floundered because they lacked buy-in from local stakeholders. Upon returning to college we teamed up to write the business plan for RUNA. We entered and won several business plan competitions. After graduating from school we moved to Ecuador to begin...
