Yerba Mate: A Healthy Alternative to Coffee

Think twice before pouring that cup of coffee. Sure, it will get you through the day, but will coffee help stimulate focus and clarity, support weight loss, aid elimination, fight bad breath, and provide your body with 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, 11 polyphenols? A cup of Yerba mate tea will.

Discovered centuries ago by the indigenous people in South America, Yerba mate has been revered as the “drink of the gods.” It is the healthiest stimulant in the world, delivering even more nutrition than green tea.

A study conducted by The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society concluded that Yerba mate contains “practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life.” They include vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex; minerals: calcium, manganese, iron, selenium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc; additional compounds: carotene, fatty acids, chlorophyll, flavonols, polyphenols, inositol, trace minerals, antioxidants, tannins, pantothenic acid and 15 amino acids.

Available in traditional, or exotic flavors green, Yerba mate can be brewed loose or seeped in tea bags. It’s even agreeable with those who are caffeine sensitive, so there’s no excuse not to enjoy a cup!
