Modern lifestyle has changed dramatically after COVID19’s preventive measures, such as lockdown and quarantine, have been adopted around the World. Our daily routine has been limited to the perimeter of our own home, including activities like entertainment, education, and even home office, as some continue to work from home. In the midst of these extraordinary circumstances, Yerba Mate (taken individually) may be your perfect ally.
Yerba Mate provides the energy you need for your day-to-day and its caffeine content acts on the mind and body more gradually than other stimulating drinks such as coffee or tea, whose energizing effect is short-lived and may be excessive, even generating nervousness and tachycardia. Also, thanks to Yerba Mate’s special preparation and drinking (sip by sip), this energizing effect is well dosed and lasts longer. This is ideal to cheer up an entire morning or afternoon at home during quarantine.
As Taragüi always claims: Mate has an energizing power. This is a 100% natural drink that does not contain sugar or chemicals and comes directly from the yerba mate tree. Yerba Mate is much healthier than commercial energy drinks, as its energy effect comes from nature itself and not from an artificial process.
Yerba Mate is full of health benefits, necessary to maintain your well-being both during quarantine and after, when you will need to be completely ready to face the outside world again. What are the benefits of drinking mate?
In Argentina, 50% of mate consumers drink it individually at least once a day. In times of isolation and social distancing, Yerba Mate can become that perfect friend that puts us in a good mood and keeps us feeling accompanied all day, especially if we have to study, work or perform tasks that require dedication and attention (Yerba Mate helps concentration and focus).
Drinking Yerba Mate is an ancient tradition, deeply rooted in countries like Uruguay and Argentina alongside soccer and barbecues. Although in South America, Yerba Mate is traditionally shared with a group (including the same mate gourd and bombilla), right now we need to reinvent the way we drink mate. You can still drink Yerba Mate with family or your roommates, but each one should have their own mate gourd and bombilla. You can still share the warm water! And if you miss the whole mate ritual, you can even share “unos matecitos” online with a group call and socialize virtually. Your health is the most important thing!
