The Four Ways That Yerba Mate Helps With Weight Loss Posted on 19 Oct 12:25 , 0 comments

Here at ECOTEAS, we receive a lot of questions about the health benefits of yerba mate. People are drawn to yerba mate's abundant natural energy, its antioxidant power, and its unique nutritional content. But perhaps the greatest number of inquiries we receive is about whether yerba mate will help with weight loss. 

We don't market yerba mate as a "weight loss wonder herb" because we don't like to create unrealistic expectations, and also because we don't want to boost sales by making people feel bad about their bodies. That's not the kind of message we want to put out into the world! The truth is that regular exercise, a nutritious low-sugar diet, plenty of sleep, and lots of self-love are your ticket to a healthy body image. 

Now, with that said, we also understand that obesity is on the rise in this country. As we age, it can be hard to find time to exercise and cook nutritious meals, and meanwhile our metabolisms keep slowing down. Yerba mate may be a helpful tool in your weight-management arsenal. Here's how it works:

1. Yerba Mate Raises Metabolism

Yerba Mate is what's known as a "thermogenic" herb. "Thermogenic" means that it actually induces your body to burn calories. 

2. Yerba Mate Suppresses Appetite

Yerba mate is a natural way to cut your cravings for sugar. Avoiding or reducing sugar consumption may be the healthiest thing you ever do!

3. Yerba Mate Provides Abundant Energy

Yerba mate contains a balanced medley of the caffeines found in coffee, green tea, and chocolate. If you are looking for a boost that won't over-tax your adrenals, yerba mate is the natural choice.

4. Yerba Mate Aids Digestion

Yerba mate has laxative properties to aid elimination. 


If you are new to yerba mate and want to experience its many benefits, we recommend getting yourself some easy-to-brew tea bags. Remember to drink plenty of water, get plenty of sleep, and think good thoughts!
