This exotic South American yerba mate leaf is a natural energy drink with a zingy punch that'll help you do life at an optimal level. A bona fide coffee alternative with antioxidants to boot. Grown in the forests of Brazil in trees up to 20m tall. A herbal tea referred to as a 'herb from the gods'.
Yerba Mate also became known as 'Cowboy Coffee' by the Argentinian gauchos (cowboys) who drank Yerba Mate because it gave them energy during long cattle drive days. It is unique and difficult to harvest, but certainly worth your while.
Yerba Mate is high in antioxidants like green tea and is can help with increased mental focus (due to caffeine content).
Yerba Mate ingestion can increase the exercise effectiveness for weight loss and sports performance (Alkhatib).
Interestingly, Yerba Mate seems to decrease the total number of fat cells and reduce the amount of fat they hold (Kang et al).
