Yerba Maté (pronounced yerva matay) was taken for its soothing yet stimulating properties by the Guaraní people of sub-tropical South America long before the arrival of the Europeans in the 16th century, but the romantic image of itinerant gauchos (cowboys of the Argentine Pampas) sharing a communal cup of the brew around the campfire is very much part of the mystique of this infusion.
Maté is a stimulant drink that helps eliminate fatigue, and stimulates mental activity. Our yerba maté naturally contains caffeine, occasionally referred to as mateine, and also contains high levels of polyphenol antioxidants. As such, it is a close-match alternative to green tea extract in health and energy beverages where a touch of the exotic is desired! As such it is a stronger alternative to green tea as Yerba Maté contains about 35% more active compounds, vitamins, minerals and amino acids (as a combined total) than green tea: That’s a total of nearly two hundred compounds!
Yerba maté contains:
• Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex
• Minerals: Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc
• Polyphenol Anitoxidants and 15 Amino Acids
• Theophylline, theobromine, and caffeine
