Yerba Mate: nutrition facts & value

Yerba Mate has important nutritional contributions and effects on human health that have been confirmed by numerous scientific studies.

Energy and concentration

Due to its caffeine content, mate increases mental energy, the ability to concentrate, and think clearly. In addition, the minerals, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and polyphenols it contains help balance this effect, so it does not have any of the uncomfortable side effects typically associated with caffeinated beverages such as headaches, stomach aches, and chills. In fact, mate helps reduce stress and insomnia.

Weight control and physical endurance

The chemical components and nutrients present in mate allow the metabolism to use carbohydrates more efficiently and obtain more energy from the consumed food. Additionally, it reduces recovery time after exercise as it helps to prevent lactic acid accumulation in the muscles.

This way, more fat calories are burned if mate is regularly consumed. Moreover, yerba mate has stimulating properties that make the person feel satisfied even before starting to eat, delaying digestion and prolonging the feeling of satiety. By combining mate with a healthy diet and regular exercise, as the native South Americans did, more calories are burned, and appetite is controlled.
