FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where does Yerba Maté come from?
Yerba Maté is known for increasing our focus, energy, and mental alertness. It originates from South America where it was discovered by the native Guarani people and drunk for its health benefits and vitality. Due to its refreshing and energizing nature, it is a very popular beverage today, especially in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay.
Why is Yerba Maté energizing?
The energising effect of Maté comes from its high caffeine content that unlike in coffee beans comes from the leaves of the Yerba Maté plant. But it doesn’t stop here. Maté also contains compounds like theophylline and theobromine that are also found in green tea and chocolate. They are known to increase the effect of caffeine and increase alertness and vitality.
How is the energy from Yerba Maté different from the energy that coffee provides?
Unlike coffee, energy drinks and other caffeinated beverages, Maté energises without causing jitters and a caffeine crash that some people experience. That is because the caffeine in Maté is processed differently by the body. It is released more slowly and steadily. Compared to coffee, it provides a much longer and smoother effect of increased energy that lasts for hours. The energising properties of Maté also increase physical stamina, making it a great choice for athletes.
How long does the energising effect of Yerba Maté last?
The immediate benefits of drinking Maté include increased energy, focus, and concentration. How long these effects last will vary among consumers. In general, Maté provides a more gentle and longer energy boost than coffee or energy drinks that lasts for hours.
