Cruz de Malta Yerba Mate Tea
Cruz de Malta Yerba Mate TeaCruz de Malta Yerba Mate Tea is our favorite yerba mate tea currently. It produces a smooth taste and mixes well with Trader Joe's Soy Creamer. Please note that the larger 1Kg packages are the best way to purchase yerba mate teas for saving your hard earned dollars. We use two coffee scoops for each French press pot we brew. When I make the Cruz de Malta brand, the tea is clearer, smoother, and richer in flavor. It costs a bit more, but worth every penny. We generally purchase three 1Kg bags at a time. (Sorry that the prices have increased! Since Dr. Oz spoke about it on TV, the prices have jumped!")

The best part about yerba mate is that it gives me a "boost" in the afternoon, yet does not keep me awake all night like caffeine does. Brew a pot for yourself and enjoy all the health benefits of a great vegan beverage.

When I need a lift in the afternoon and don't want the caffeine buzz that will keep me up all night, my alternative is Guayaki Yerba Mate. It's an unusual tea that is naturally caffeinated, but is accepted by my nervous system better than an afternoon coffee. My favorite flavor is the Mate Chocolatté.

Guayaki Yerba MateWhat is Yerba Mate?
Yerba mate is a caffeine beverage made from the leaves and stems of a powerful rainforest tree, native to the subtropical rainforests of South America. It was discovered by the natives of the rainforest centuries ago.

While yerba mate and green tea share many of the same benefits, (antioxidants, polyphenols, flavonoids, bio flavonoids, and theophylline) modern science shows that yerba mate has 52 more active compounds than green tea. There are 196 active compounds in yerba mate compared to the 144 found in green tea. In fact, yerba mate can boast higher polyphenol and antioxidant counts than either green or black teas.

Yerba Mate Health Benefits
There are many positive effects of yerba mate drinking that have been observed by consumers, and further confirmed in scientific studies. The positive effects listed below have been directly or indirectly attributed to drinking yerba mate infusions.

Induces Mental Clarity
Yerba mate has the ability to quicken the mind and increase mental alertness and acuity. Yerba mate also provides sustainable energy due to its complex combination of xanthine alkaloids and caffeine. Although its caffeine content is comparable to coffee, the stimulation is balanced by yerba mate’s nutritional content. Clinical studies have shown that caffeine-sensitive individuals generally have very positive results and don’t experience the hard side effects (jitters, stomach discomfort,headache) commonly associated with caffeine.

Reduce Fatigue & Sustain Energy Levels
Yerba mate is a central nervous system stimulant. The metabolic effects of mate appear to include the ability to maintain aerobic breakdown of carbohydrates during exercise for long periods of time. As a result, more calories are burned, thereby increasing cardiac efficiency and delaying the build-up of lactic acid. Additionally, mate’s blend of xanthine alkaloids: caffeine, theophylline and theobromine, provide sustaining energy.

Weight Control
For many years now, physicians in Europe have been
incorporating yerba mate in treatments for obesity. In 2000, a research team studying obesity at the Charlottenlund Medical Center in Denmark tested an herbal preparation of Yerba Maté, Guarana, and Damiana (YGD) for gastric emptying and subsequent weight loss. They concluded that the herbal preparation, YGD capsules, significantly delayed gastric emptying, reduced the time to perceived gastric fullness and induced significant weight loss over 45 days in overweight patients treated in a primary health care context. In addition, maintenance treatment given in an uncontrolled context resulted in no further weight loss, nor weight regain in the group as a whole. Guayaki recommends that the product be used as part of a program that includes a healthy diet and sufficient exercise.

Elimination
Some gastrointestinal disorders can be treated with yerba mate. Studies have shown it to increase bile flow and enhance intestinal transit.

Control Bad Breath
Polyphenols found in yerba mate have been shown to prevent both the growth of bacteria responsible for bad breath and the bacteria’s
production of odorous compounds.
