Yerba Mate a drink from Argentina, a drink of culture, a drink with huge nutritional benefits.

The HUGE benefits of drinking Yerba mate. Walk around any street in Uruguay and you will see 99% of people holding a flask and what looks to be a wizards cauldron. In similar fashion you will see the same all over Argentina but more so in social situations and at work. I have an Argentinian friend who will drink 5L of Mate a day.

I’ve been drinking this brand of mate for the past 4 years, since travelling Argentina. The health benefits I’ve found are mainly: energy, focus and digestion. I’ve also noticed I sleep better, which is ironic considering it’s a little bit of a stimulant but hey-ho. You can get your hands on this wonderful organic stuff here. Read on for the other associated health aids.

Why?

Well Yerba Mate is a type of herb and when infused with hot water releases a huge array of benefits

Rich in Antioxidants

it’s got about 90% more antioxidants than green tea, has significant immune boosting properties, can slow the signs of ageing, detoxify the blood and prevent many types of cancer. Also known for helping reduce stress and insomnia

Enhances Your Ability to Focus (many athletes use Mate)

The minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, animo acids and polphenols have a balancing effect on the caffeine it contains. It’s know to increase mental energy, clarity and focus and doesn’t have the side effects associated with caffeine such as headaches, stomachaches and jitters

Enhances Physical Endurance

Mate contains a high profile of amino acids and the chemical compounds and other nutrients in it affect your metabolism to make your body use carbohydrates more efficiently. This means you’ll get more energy from the food you eat. It also helps keep lactic acid from building up in your muscles decreasing post workout soreness

Aids Digestion

The native peoples of South America have long used yerba mate tea as a traditional herbal remedy against digestive ailments. Yerba mate aids digestion by stimulating increased production of bile and other gastric acids

Supports cardio vascular health

The antioxidants and amino acids present in yerba mate help fat and cholesterol move through your bloodstream so that they don’t accumulate on artery walls. Yerba mate also helps prevent arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and prevents blood clots that may cause heart attack or stroke.
