It contains caffeine, a central nervous system stimulant and is responsible for its wake-me-up property. It has minerals such as potassium and magnesium. It has a high antioxidant content which potentially fights chronic degenerative disease and even cancer. Antioxidants also prevent aging and give our immune system a boost.
