YERBA MATE LEAVES (Green)
Fatigue, CFS, Heart, low blood pressure, depression, headach, joint pains, urinary tract infection, badder/kidney stones, weight loss and laxative.
Mate is used as a stimulant to relieve mental and physical tiredness (fatigue), as well as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). It is also used for heart-related complaints including heart failure, irregular heartbeat, and low blood pressure.
Some people use mate to improve mood and depression; to relieve headache and joint pains; to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs), and bladder and kidney stones; for weight loss; and as a laxative.
In foods, mate is used to make a tea-like beverage, known as maté or Yerba Maté, which is very popular in Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina.
How does it work?
Mate contains caffeine and other chemicals which stimulate the brain, heart, muscles lining blood vessels, and other parts of the body.
Info from another source: Yerba mate is diuretic, inotropic (increasing the strength of each heartbeat), chronotropic (making the heart beat faster), glycogenolytic (breaking down stored glycogen in the liver, allowing it to store calories from the next meal), lipolytic (breaking down fats), and analeptic(stimulating the central nervous system). Yerba mate assists weight loss by increasing the transit time of food through the digestive tract, helping users feel fuller, longer. Also recommended for treating fatigue and headache.
Drink 3 cups a day for best results in aiding weight loss.
