    Yerba Matte Tea


    Yerba Matte

    Yerba Maté (pronounced "yerba mah-tay") is a medicinal and cultural herbal beverage that was introduced to the world by the Guarani Indians of South America.

    It has become a cultural focal point for several South American nations especially Argentina where it is even more popular than coffee. Yerba Maté is the national beverage of Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay. Over the last several years, Yerba Maté has enjoyed fast-spreading popularity in North America and Western Europe, by persons seeking a stimulating yet healthful replacement for coffee.

    Yerba Maté contains many compounds that help keep its drinkers healthy and energetic, including some compounds that thus far have been found only in Maté. There are 196 volatile (or active) chemical compounds found in the Yerba Maté plant.

    Yerba mate assists weight loss by increasing the transit time of food through the digestive tract, helping users feel fuller, longer. The British Herbal Compendium also recommends yerba mate for treating fatigue and headache.

    An August 11, 2005, a United States patent application cites yerba mate extract as an inhibitor of MAO activity; the maximal inhibition observed in vitro was 40–50%. A monoamine oxidase inhibitor is a type of antidepressant, so there is some data to suggest that yerba mate has a calming effect in this regard.

    MAO Inhibitors are also thought to aid weight loss and suppress appetite, much like the one's found in Raw Chocolate Beans.
