Yerba Mate Herbal Tea
Yerba Mate is a caffeine-rich, South-American native plant. Most often used as a tea with a robust flavor, similar to coffee. In fact, it is as popular in South America as coffee is in the USA.
Yerba mate contains several active compounds that make the herb flavorful and nutritious. Like green tea and black tea, yerba mate contains antioxidant flavonoids, such as kaempferol, quercetin and rutin. The herb also provides calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and selenium and vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3 (niacin) and B complex.
