Waku was created to bring an ancestral tradition from the Andes Mountains to life for consumers around the world. The uniqueness of our products comes from the authenticity of our formulations - Waku was not created in a lab, but instead inherited from our ancestors. This plant based tonic not only improves digestive health for the consumer, but preserves the cultural heritage from the indigenous communities and the recipe that has been part of Ecuadorian diets for centuries.
Waku is a refreshing plant based tonic infused with 20 herbs and flowers from the Andes Mountains that is great for gut health.
