THIS BEAUTIFUL NATURAL TEA (pronounced yurba mah-tay) should become part of the daily ritual for anyone interested in maintaining optimum health. Across the whole of South America millions of men, women and children know Maté as a simple and effective way of staying in peak condition.
Besides being refreshing and stimulating, Maté is packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants: vitamins A, C and E, for instance, and many of the vitamins in the B complex. It is rich in minerals – iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulphur and silica among them. And the array of polyphenols has caught a lot of attention, as these plant complexes are valuable anti-oxidants, supporting the immune system, and overpowering the free radicals which are a natural result of cellular activity but also can destroy tissue and interrupt body systems. Scientists from the Pasteur Institute in Paris concluded that Maté contains practically all the vitamins necessary to maintain life. Indeed it is hard to find a plant anywhere in the world that equals Maté in nutritional value.
Maté is a tropical and sub-tropical relative of our European holly. It is ever-green and It needs high temperatures and high humidity, over a metre and half of rain per year! The leaves are gathered, dried, and shredded or powdered. It is best not to use boiling water directly on the Maté as much of the goodness can be destroyed. Many people soak the Maté first in a little cold water before adding the hot.
MATE AND SLIMMING
While the stimulating effect is energising and light, the powerful anti-oxidant effect is also important when the body is under some stress. slimmers who use Maté know its value and, even when they have reached their ideal weight, continue to enjoy Maté daily as a healthier alternative to tea and coffee.
Yerba Maté is ideal for students, in the stressful turmoil of a developing career, and later in maturity many praise, among other things, their increased delight in sexual performance and enjoyment.
Yerba Maté is not only a tea. We have developed other forms to suit other life styles: Maté in powder form, for any drink that you can imagine, and the quick and convenient capsules which give you Maté energy on the fly. Whichever way you choose, Yerba Maté is the jewel of the famous herb garden of Brazil.
