GLOSSARY
YERBA MATE

Yerba Mate

 

How does it work?

Yerba mate, botanically known as Ilex paraguariensis, is a South American herbal medicine used for its cholesterol lowering and liver protecting activity; and as a central nervous system stimulant, appetite suppressant, diuretic and antioxidant.1 Research has shown yerba mate protects DNA against free radical damage and has been suggested for weight loss and obesity management.2 These actions are due to yerba mate containing a synergistic combination of constituents such as caffeine, chlorogenic acid, theobromine and theophylline as well as various nutrients.3

What results can be expected?

Yerba mate supplementation may support those on weight reduction programs, provide antioxidant activity, assist in lowering cholesterol and protective liver cell damage.4
