Yerba Mate has been used since ancient times for its rejuvenating, nutritional, and energizing effects, particularly for mental and physical fatigue. Yerba Mate can be taken as an effective weight-loss aid. Scientific research shows Yerba Mate to be a powerful antioxidant and that it can protect DNA from double-strand breaks. Yerba Mate naturally contains a wide range of polyphenols, methylxanthines, and chlorogenic acid, which together are responsible for its many health benefits. With 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, 11 polyphenols, caffeine, and is high in antioxidants, yerba mate is one of nature's most balanced stimulant.
Yerba Mate is derived from the leaves of a small South American evergreen tree. It has been consumed as a tea since early in the 1800's when it was discovered by Auguste de Saint Hilaire. Many of the compounds found in Yerba Mate are similar to those found in tea, including polyphenols, tannis and xanthine alkaloids. Yerba Mate delivers both energy and nutrition and is considered by many to be the healthiest of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: yerba mate, coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa, and guarana.
Yerba Mate helps Stimulate Focus and Clarity:
Yerba mate can help to quicken the mind and increase mental alertness and acuity. It also provides sustainable energy due to its complex combination of xanthine alkaloids and caffeine. Although its caffeine content is comparable to coffee, the stimulation is balanced by yerba mate's nutritional content. Clinical studies have shown that caffeine-sensitive individuals generally have very positive results and don't experience the hard side effects (jitters, stomach discomfort, headache) commonly associated with caffeine.
Boosts Physical Energy:
Yerba mate is a central nervous system stimulant. The metabolic effects of mate appear to include the ability to maintain aerobic breakdown of carbohydrates during exercise for long periods of time. As a result, more calories are burned, thereby increasing cardiac efficiency and delaying the build-up of lactic acid. Additionally, mate's blend of xanthine alkaloids: caffeine, theophylline and theobromine, provide sustaining energy.
Traditionally Used to Support Weight Loss Programs that Include a Balanced Diet and Exercise:
For many years now, physicians in Europe have been incorporating yerba mate in treatments for obesity. In 2000, a research team studying obesity at the Charlottenlund Medical Center in Denmark tested an herbal preparation of Yerba Mate, Guarana, and Damiana (YGD) for gastric emptying and subsequent weight loss. They concluded that the herbal preparation, YGD capsules, significantly delayed gastric emptying, reduced the time to perceived gastric fullness and induced significant weight loss over 45 days in overweight patients treated in a primary health care context. In addition, maintenance treatment given in an uncontrolled context resulted in no further weight loss, nor weight regain in the group as a whole. Guayaki recommends that the product be used as part of a program that includes a healthy diet and sufficient exercise.
