Jal Gua is a vehicle for change in every sense of the word it is a booster of healthy energy in the consumers who are drivers of change. Peaceful Body = A Peaceful Mind.
Jal Gua was created at a time when Emmanuel Jal was focusing on the root cause of his high blood pressure, early symptoms of diabetes and the intense fatigue he felt on tour. He developed Jal Gua to combat these ailments and the results were tremendous. His blood pressured lowered, he had energy to perform and felt revitalized and rejuvenated.
Jal Gua as a food product was brought to fruition with the help of team leaders and food-scientists including Susan Paekau and Amy Proulx of MaRS and Niagara College.

Traditionally used to provide energy and nourishment to cattle farmers, field workers, working mothers and school children – the ingredients found in Jal Gua give consumers more than enough energy to accomplish their daily goals.
