Yerba Mate? Let us tell you about it!
Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis) has the energy of coffee, the health benefits of green tea, and the euphoria of chocolate all in one potent leaf. Of the six most commonly used stimulants in the world: coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa and guarana, yerba mate is the most balanced, delivering both energy and nutrition.
Yerba mate (yer-bah mah-tay) is made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the venerable South American rainforest holly tree. South America’s Aché Guayakí tribe have sipped yerba mate from a traditional mate gourd for its rejuvenative effects for centuries. These rainforest people find tremendous invigoration, focus, and nourishment in yerba mate.
The leaves of the rainforest mate tree naturally contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, abundant antioxidants. Yerba mate contains caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine, well-known stimulants also found in tea, coffee and chocolate. It is a shade grown subtropical plant that grows in in the countries of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.
