Yerba Mate is an antioxidant-rich drink that contains Theobromine.
Theobromine is a bitter alkaloid - also found in cacao - that is a mild stimulant. It may offer longer-acting effects than caffeine, and with fewer adverse side effects. While caffeine and theobromine have similar effects, the key difference is that caffeine has an effect on the central nervous system and theobromine most significantly affects smooth muscle, which is why many say that theobromine acts as a natural muscle relaxer.
Various sources suggest that yerba mate puts you in a state of mental clarity that facilitates concentration and has a positive impact on cognitive functions. You can read this article to learn more about the benefits of Yerba Mate!
We want to make sure that our Yerba Mate drinks always have the best taste possible. That's why we make sure not to use any sweeteners like aspartame, stevia or any "fake" sugars in our products. The reason for this is that these sweeteners often have an aftertaste which often ruins the real taste of the drink.
The only sugar present in our ready to drink products comes from organic fruit juices and cane sugar. We use a maximum of 8g of sugar per can of 355 ml, which is 4 to 5 times less than what you find in conventional energy drinks.
