Rich in theobromine, providing a unique energy

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 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.

SMOKE-FREE, SAFE FOR HEALTH

Our yerba mate is organic & 100% air dried through a process that uses warm air instead of smoke.

Smoked yerba mate is linked to possible health concerns since this drying method produces Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), chemicals shown to be carcinogens and dangerous for your health. Most of the world’s yerba mate is processed using a heavily smoked drying system that uses burning wood to dry the mate leaves.

Air drying enables the leaves to be free of PAHs and gives a less bitter taste.We are proud to offer a safe, healthy & light tasting yerba mate.
