Don’t Like Coffee? You Should Drink Yerba Mate!

In Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and other South American countries, yerba mate is a popular herbal tea. It is made from the hollies plant and is similar in flavour to green tea. It is traditionally served with a filtered straw in a hollow gourd, although others prefer to drink it over ice. Yerba Mate, like coffee and other teas, stimulates the nervous system and it is commonly consumed as an energy boost. This South American drink is traditionally served hot with a filtered straw in a hollow gourd.

Are there any health benefits to drinking?

Yerba mate can help you with fatigue, depression, weight management, and chronic headaches. In fact, yerba mate is flooded with antioxidants due to its high content of xanthines, caffeoyl derivatives and saponins. A caffeine-rich beverage like yerba mate increases alertness, improves concentration, reduces fatigue, and improves physical performance because of its high caffeine content. There has been some preliminary evidence that yerba mate can help treat mental disorders such as depression, mood disorders, eating disorders, and substance abuse. Some patients have shown that yerba mate can stimulate fat oxidation and feelings of fullness, which results in significant weight loss.

Any risks to drinking yerba mate?

A caffeinated beverage like yerba mate can cause complications, including increased blood pressure, a higher risk of losing a pregnancy, and higher blood lipid levels, just like coffee does. Yerba mate may increase blood pressure, raise blood lipid levels, and cause heart arrhythmias in some people suffering from hypertension, heart disease, or heart arrhythmias. Some research has also shown a potential link between yerba mate and cancers of the throat and mouth, especially when consumed at high temperatures.
