RUNA, the only organic energy drink made from the Guayusa (gwhy-you-sa) leaf, is celebrating the recent shift in the brand's core product focus to clean energy and launch of five new refreshing flavors in its delicious family of Organic Energy Drinks at this year's Natural Products Expo West. RUNA will be sampling all eight Clean Energy Drink flavors, including new MangoPomegranate, Pineapple, Unsweetened Mint Strawberry, and Unsweetened Watermelon, which are rolling out online and on shelves now. Show attendees are invited to stop by to refresh and recharge at Booth #2206.

For thousands of years, the Guayusa leaf has played a significant role in the lives of indigenous Kichwa families. Guayusa naturally contains caffeine, l-theanine and polyphenols. This Amazonian super-leaf is the core ingredient of all RUNA drinks, contributing to the experience of smooth energy without feeling a crash, and delivering 150 milligrams of natural caffeine per 12 fl. oz. can.

"RUNA is shaking up the energy drink category with an unwavering commitment to making products with clean ingredients," said Alex Galindez, CEO of RUNA.  Consumers are thirsty for simple ways to get an energy boost that won't jolt or jitter, with less sugar and a refreshing taste. RUNA's products directly meet the needs of today's discerning consumer without making them compromise quality, ingredients, or taste. Our recent shift in focus towards RUNA's Clean Energy Drink line is an exciting time for the brand and we can't wait for more consumers to unlock the smooth taste and powerful energy boost that comes from the Guayusa Leaf."

RUNA Clean Energy drinks are lightly carbonated with no artificial ingredients, and come in eight flavors in a sleek white can. The low levels of acidity and tannins – the "bitter" taste sometimes associated with tea – allow RUNA's unsweetened drinks to provide a clean taste with zero calories and no added sugar. Lightly sweetened RUNA flavors use USDA Certified organic cane sugar, with 70 calories per 12 fl. oz. can. The drinks are adaptive enough to fit any lifestyle and diet, easily enjoyed in the morning, afternoon or evening, before and after a workout, or any time a boost of smooth energy is needed.

RUNA is also passionate about its social mission. More than 1 million Guayusa trees have been planted in collaboration with Amazonian Kichwa communities. All products are Fair Trade Certified™ and USDA Certified Organic.

Existing flavors of RUNA's Clean Energy Drinks include BerryUnsweetened Blood Orange, and Unsweetened Lime. The brand's innovations, and their existing flavors, are available for tasting and enjoying at Booth #2206 at Natural Products Expo WestAnaheim Convention Center, 800 West Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA on March 9-11.
