Yerba is an excellent source of nutritional and physical properties for our body. Not only does it help with energy, focus and weight loss; Mate is also a great ally throughout physical training.

Many people drink Mate as their pre-training beverage, as it is much more natural than commercial sports supplements. Besides, Mate also allows us to integrate sport into our daily life and so various everyday activities in a single day: working, studying, running, and so on.
Mate makes our metabolism process carbs in a more efficient way, meaning we have more and improved energy to use. In turn, this considerably increases stamina – our ability to train longer before fatigue sets in. Moreover, this drink aids in the prevention of lactic acid buildup, which normally causes a burning sensation in the muscles and discourages us from continuing working out.
There are more benefits which make Mate a natural choice for exercising: the great level of antioxidant content, its power to lower stress, as well as its benefits on cardiovascular wellness allow us to be in better shape. This in turn contributes to higher performance when doing any activity.

According to this publication, the recovery rate after strength training increases by 8.6% up to 24 hours after working out. Yerba Mate has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory virtues which are the perfect fit for an injured muscle.
