Jeremy, Julien, and Christian met at university in London and just like any other students were looking for that extra sip of caffeine. While traditionally energy drinks are loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients they were looking for a better source of energy. They came across the Amazonian superfood plant "yerba mate" which is used for centuries for its uplifting effect. This surely was the solution for a long-lasting boost of energy and focus. It was so convincing that they wanted to give credit to this powerful plant and created UK's first organic energy drink powered by yerba mate. BRIO literally means to perform with vigor and vitality. That is the spirit that every BRIO can should help you achieve.
