Yerba Mate (pronounced 'martee') is a well known South American herb made from the leaves of the subtropical Yerba Mate tree.
It is a common social practice among South American people of all ages to drink and share Yerba Mate. Many attribute the slimness of the Argentine people to their regular consumption of Yerba Mate. For many years doctors in Europe have been incorporating Yerba Mate in their weight management programmes.
Yerba Mate tea contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and beneficial antioxidants. These reduce fatigue, increase energy levels, and assist weight management naturally by supporting calorie burning and helping to manage appetite. It has been called 'the healthy alternative to coffee' due to its ability to stimulate the mind without the negative side effects of caffeine.
Yerba Mate is a nutritious and beneficial tea containing 196 active compounds, compared to the 144 found in green tea, and has over twice the antioxidant activity of green tea. Yerba Mate also contains vitamins (A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B5), minerals (calcium, manganese, iron, selenium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc) as well as antioxidants and amino acids.
Yerba Mate tea has a slight bittersweet flavour which is enjoyable on its own or can be flavoured with the addition of a slice of lemon, a bit of honey or one or two mint leaves.
