Lucky Vitamin continues to expand the variety of products available to our customers. Bringing products from different countries and cultures, we are happy to announce the addition of Maté Factor Organic Yerba Maté to our site.
If you are still not familiar with it, yerba maté is similar to green tea yet higher in nutritional value and antioxidants. It contains 27% more active nutritional compounds than green tea, including: vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, as well as calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, selenium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, carotene, essential fatty acids, inositol, pantothenic acid and amino acids.
Yerba maté is a great energy booster and helps in weight management due to its thermogenic effect, which forces the body to release excess calories as heat rather than storing them as fat.
The Maté Factor was founded as a retail brand in 2003 and specialized in fresh, organic yerba maté as well as maté accessories. You can find yerba maté in many health food stores and on line retailers but very few places offer the maté accessories.
Lucky Vitamin now brings you the best maté accessories, including gourds, bombillas and tea straws. Maté Factor gourds are harvested and prepared in the traditional fashion, naturally treated and individually decorated on the outside by a craftsman. The finished gourd, being natural, will have its own unique characteristics, both on the inside and on the outside. A top-quality gourd is essential for a good yerba maté experience.
