Do you want to be a rugged Gaucho? You're in luck. Used for millennia in South America by the Guarani people, and consumed today around the world for health and energy, Yerba Maté has a number of benefits that keep even the toughest Argentinians on the move. Good for a Gaucho; good for you.
Used for millennia in South America by the Guarani people, and consumed today as health and energy tonic around the world, Yerba Maté has a number of benefits that keep even the toughest Argentinians on the move.
Yerba Maté is extremely rich in antioxidants, caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline. Theobromine in particular is the star of Yerba Maté. A bitter alkaloid found in chocolate, kola nuts, and, of course, Yerba Maté, theobromine is a natural relaxant that eases the impact that caffeine – a natural stimulant – has on the body.
While caffeine provides you with the needed jolt of energy, theobromine ensures that the diffusion of caffeine in our coffee alternative is slow and steady, which helps reduce the nervous jitters and energy crash coffee is known for.
On top of its many health benefits, Yerba Maté soothes the body and soul. That's because it's a warm and cozy beverage – one that you'll find Gael García Bernal drinking obsessively in his show "Mozart in the Jungle."
