Yerba Matte (Yerba Mate) is consumed mainly
in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and southern Brazil. It
is brewed from the dried leaves and stemlets of the perennial
tree Ilex paraguarensis. A tea native to South America and
has been used for centuries as a health tonic and beverage.
Containing 196 active compounds, nutrients, and amino acids,
Yerba matte is touted as the new healthy alternative to
coffee. Additionally, it is believed to act on sensory organs
to assist dieters in reducing food cravings.
The name "Mate" derives from the quichua word
"matí" that names the gourd (Lagenaria
vulgaris) that is traditionally used to drink the infusion.
Quite often mate is bitter and sharp but this one is smooth
and delicious. It contains twice as much caffeine as tea
and is refreshing, invigorating, and rich in vitamin C.
In addition, it is considered an appetizing drink that suppresses
food cravings and the appetite. However, the only thing
that it offers as a stimulant is caffeine.
By limiting food intake while dieting, any added caffeine
can leave you feeling jittery, sweaty, and disoriented.
Limit your caffeine and Yerba matte intake, increase your
water consumption, and exercise, and you will find you do
better on your diet.
