5 good reasons to drink Yerba Mate 🧉

Consumed by millions of people every day for its energizing effects and other great benefits, yerba mate is a plant native to the South American rainforest.
Some like to compare yerba mate to the energizing qualities of coffee, the benefits of green tea and the euphoria of cocoa.
Yerba mate contains matein, theobromine and theophylline.
Theobromine is the element you need to keep in mind!

Here are 5 reasons to drink Yerba mate:

1- The advantages of coffee, without the disadvantages

Yerba mate is naturally rich in caffeine and theobromine, which gives it a unique energy: no big high, no big crash, no heartburn usually associated with caffeine consumption. It is therefore an excellent solution for those who are sensitive to it!

It is an antioxidant-rich drink that contains theobromine. Theobromine is a bitter alkaloid, also found in cocoa. It is a mild stimulant that acts particularly on smooth muscles, while caffeine mainly targets the central nervous system. The combination of caffeine and theobromine provides balanced, sustained energy and above all contains fewer side effects such as the rapid rise and fall of energy.


2- Awakens the mind, improves concentration

The unique composition of yerba mate awakens the body and mind in a balanced way, keeping us awake, focused and relaxed at the same time.

Several studies show that people who consume mate experience the following effects: increased ability to concentrate, increased alertness, and improved physical energy - but without the jittery side effects often linked to caffeine.


3- Good for health

Yerba mate contains many amino acids and is rich in antioxidants and other essential nutrients such as polyphenols. Polyphenols are a group of antioxidants that may help strengthen the immune system and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and other chronic illnesses through their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.


4- May help reduce blood pressure

Various sources claim that theobromine may play a role in reducing enzymes in the blood that cause vascular constriction. Theobromine can help with vasodilation: it impacts the widening of your vessels, allowing blood to flow more freely throughout your body.

5- Ideal for physical activity

Before physical activity : Consuming matein before physical activity is known to improve endurance and performance.

During physical activity : Thanks to its high content of antioxidants, yerba mate is also appreciated by athletes during training, as these could contribute to the reduction of lactic acid accumulation and, therefore, could reduce the burning sensation in the muscles during physical exercise.

After physical activity : Yerba mate is known for its high content of antioxidants, appreciated for their anti-inflammatory effects, which help muscle recovery.


A word of advice : choose organic, non-smoked yerba mate , a safer choice for your health.
