Ingredient: Green Yerba Mate


Green Yerba Mate

Mate is a popular drink in South America, where it has been cultivated and consumed for hundreds of years.

While mate is referred to as a tea, it is made from the stems and leaves of the botanical plant name is Ilex paraguariensis, a member of the holly family of plants.

Yerba Mate Facts

-The brewing method for Mate is slightly different than for normal teas. The loose leaf mate is placed in a gourd (many are made specifically for mate), filled with hot water and enjoyed through a filtered straw called a "bombilla."

-Mate contains three xanthines: caffeine, theophylline and theobromine, all of which make it a potent memory/mind-enhancing performance tea.

-Mate is packed with polyphenols and flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants that help prevent inflammation.
