450 gr (1Lb.)


Yerba Mate is usually prepared and consumed as tea. Mate tea is a renowned beverage that is drunk to increase energy and relieve fatigue: it is considered to have the same properties as coffee, thanks to plant's caffeine content. Besides its tonic and stimulant properties, yerba mate teas are also believed to have diuretic, thermogenic, appetite suppressant effects; therefore, teas are also drunk during hypochaloric diets to help weight loss.

Please note: this product is a natural green leaf powder that has not been roasted, and will not taste like the traditionally prepared roasted leaves that are used as a beverage.

Suggested Use: As nutritional supplement. Yerba Mate is best prepared as an infusion. Use one teaspoon of powder for each cup of water. Pour boiling water over herb in cup and allow to steep 10 minutes. Strain tea (or allow settled powder to remain in the bottom of cup) and drink warm. It is traditionally taken in 1 cup amounts, 2-3 times daily.

Precautions: Yerba mate contains caffeine and should not be used by those who are sensitive or allergic to caffeine. Excessive consumption of caffeine is contraindicated for persons with high blood pressure, diabetes, ulcers, and other diseases. Yerba mate should not be consumed excessively and chronically. Do not exceed the recommended dosage. This product is a nutritional supplement and it's not intended to replace a varied and balanced diet. Keep out from children's reach.
