Yerba mate has been used as a herbal medicine in South America for centuries, and the plant’s benefits and therapeutic properties have recently been verified by a number of scientific studies. The chemical components of yerba mate are similar to those found in green tea; however, yerba mate is more nutritious. It’s been said to offer the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage!
Some traditional uses from consuming yerba mate tea drink:
• as a stimulant
• as an overall tonic and digestive aid
• as part of a weight loss regime
• as a general nerve tonic for pain, fatigue, and depression
• for allergies and sinusitis
