Why Does the Caffeine in Yerba Mate Feel So Much Better Than Coffee?
A tablespoon of yerba mate naturally provides 30 mg of caffeine. But that's just the beginning of the story...
Yerba mate also contains theobromine, the feel-good stimulant in chocolate, and theophylline, the mental energizer in green and black tea. These three stimulants work together to produce a sustained body-and-mind effect that is greater than the sum of its parts.
In addition to caffeine, yerba mate provides abundant vitamins and minerals. By contrast, coffee may actually block your body's capacity to absorb vital minerals. Yerba mate's unique medley of stimulation and nutrition helps maintain your body's balance, and won't leave you jittery or crashed afterwards.
One of the best things about yerba mate is that you can easily tailor its strength to your needs by employing different preparation methods. A yerba mate tea bag has about as much caffeine as a cup of green tea. A few tablespoons of loose yerba mate in a French press can range from black tea to regular coffee. And if you brew loose yerba mate with a gourd and bombilla, you can get a potent pick-me-up that will provide physical and mental energy all day long.
