Learn more about Yerba Mate

Steeped in History

Yerba Mate is is a shrub in the holly family Aquifoliaceae, native to South America, used as a herbal tea. The word yerba is Spanish for grass or herb. The word Mate (pronounced: maa-tay) is from the Quechua mati, meaning "cup". Yerba Mate is therefore literally the "cup herb."

The plant is grown mainly in South America, more specifically in Paraguay, Argentina, Uruguay and Southern Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul and Paraná). The Guarani are reputed to be the first people who cultivated the plant; the first Europeans to do this were Jesuit missionaries, who spread the drinking habit as far as Ecuador.

The Healthy Alternative

Mate contains xanthines, which are alkaloids in the same family as caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine, well-known stimulants also found in coffee and chocolate. Mate also contains other elements, such as Potassium and Magnesium, as well as countless other vitamins and minerals.

Researchers at Florida International University in Miami have found that yerba Mate does contain caffeine, but some people seem to tolerate it better than coffee or tea.

No Negative Side Effects

From reports of personal experience with Mate, its physiological effects are similar to yet distinct from more widespread caffeinated beverages like coffee or tea. Users report a mental state of wakefulness, focus and alertness reminiscent of most stimulants, but often remark on Mate’s unique lack of the negative effects typically created by other such compounds, such as anxiety, diarrhea, "jitteriness", and heart palpitations.

Studies of Mate, though very limited, have shown prelimary evidence that the Mate xanthine cocktail is different from other plants containing caffeine most significantly in its effects on muscle tissue, as opposed to those on the central nervous system, which are similar to those of other natural stimulants. Mate has been shown to have a relaxing effect on smooth muscle tissue, and a stimulating effect on myocardial (heart) tissue.

Mate’s negative effects are anecdotally claimed to be of a lesser degree than those of caffeine. Many users report that drinking yerba Mate does not prevent them from being able to fall asleep, as is often the case with some more common stimulating beverages, while still enhancing their energy and ability to remain awake at will.
