Ditch the coffee, get the Mate !
“Of the six most commonly used stimulants in the world: yerba mate, coffee, tea, cola nut, cocoa, and guarana, yerba mate triumphs as the most balanced, delivering both energy and nutrition”
Yerba mate does contain caffine, but unlike coffee, it is not acid forming in the body. Foods that are acid forming in the body can provide a breeding ground for bacterial growth and overall decrease in immunity. It also contains a lower amount of tannins than most teas, making it less bitter.
YERBA MATE CONTAINS :
• Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex
• Minerals: Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc
• Additional Compounds: Carotene, Fatty Acids, Chlorophyll, Flavonols, Polyphenols, Inositol, Trace Minerals, Antioxidants, Tannins, Pantothenic Acid and 15 Amino Acids.
