Known as the "Drink of the Gods" by indigenous South Americans (the Guarani), Yerba Maté is an evergreen tree native to South America where, as a beverage, the dried green leaves of the Ilex paraguariensis (Yerba Maté) tree are traditionally used more commonly than tea or coffee as a refreshing daily stimulant. Amongst other health benefits, Yerba Maté is also believed to have been used by the Guarani natives to control their appetite. Yerba Maté is a rich source of plant compounds such as polyphenols and methylxanthines (caffeine, theobromine, theophylline) which are also found in chocolate, green tea and coffee. Herbex Yerba Maté powder can be used by simply adding it to water for a tasty passion fruit-flavoured drink, or add the powder to shakes, or sprinkle it over food. Recommended daily intake, 10g.
