The Power of Yerba Mate

The Revolution Greens army has been searching for the most powerful superfoods. Our search has turned up another one, Yerba Mate. The Guarani peoples of South America were the first people to harvest and drink yerba mate. They considered the yerba tree a gift of the gods. Its because of all the health benefits. Here they are:

-a good detoxifier
-produces deeper sleep
-boosts the immune system
-relieves allergies
-increases energy
-possibly reduces the risk of diabetes and hypoglycemia
-relaxes muscles
-burns more calories
-increases mental focus
-improves mood
-increases the supply of nutrients and oxygen to the heart during exercise
-decreases hunger cravings
-possible prevention of some cancers
-possible reduction of heart attack and stroke
-beneficial to the digestive tract

The taste is like a cross between green tea and coffee. It can be sweetened with sugar or honey. Pick up some and enjoy as a tea or a powder added to your favorite drink.
