Known as the “Drink of the Gods” by indigenous South Americans (the Guarani), Yerba Matѐ is an evergreen tree native to South America where, as a beverage, the dried green leaves of the Ilex paraguariensis (Yerba Matѐ) tree are traditionally used more commonly than tea or coffee as a refreshing daily stimulant. Amongst other health benefits, Yerba Matѐ is also believed to have been used by the Guarani natives to control their appetite. Yerba Matѐ 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.
Our Yerba Matѐ powder comes in a delicious passion fruit flavour and can be used by simply adding it to water, low fat or skim milk or your favourite fruit juice for a tasty drink, or add the powder to shakes or sprinkle it over food.
