 Yerba Mate, a traditional South American brew, has been said to increase your energy, boost mental focus and speed up metabolism all while burning fat. Let us explain…

What Is Yerba Mate? 

Yerba Mate is made from the leaves of the South American Holly Tree (llex paraguariensis). This plant offers naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves that are celebrated throughout Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil and many other South American Countries.

Yerba Mate has the strength of coffee and the health benefits of tea offering both energy and nutrition making this one fabulous beverage!


What's with that weird metal straw thingy? 

Traditionally, Mate is enjoyed throughout the entire steeping experience. Meaning, you do not need to remove it's leaves from your cup, strainer, etc. In fact, the longer you leave the leaves, the more benefits you experience.

For this reason, South Americans generally will drink their mate using a bombilla (tea straw) and gourd. If you want to give it a whirl, you can buy one here. 


Health Benefits of Yerba Mate


1. Yerba Mate contains 90 percent more antioxidants than green tea and is chalk full of amino acids and polyphenols making this a triple threat.


2.South American people have traditionally used Yerba Mate as part of a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and exercise, giving them a sustained focus, mental clarity, and energy boost in addition to working that metabolism. What more can you ask for from a beverage?

3.Mate has stimulant qualities that help you feel full sooner after you begin eating; it slows your digestion to that your stomach feels full longer. Combining Yerba Mate with a healthy diet and regular exercise can help boost your metabolism to burn more calories and assist in curbing those mid-afternoon sugar cravings!
