The beginning of the year brings up a lot of questions regarding nutrition. Some people struggle to find a way to eat less calories without dropping the nutrition intake. Eating less food may lead to less nutrients including vitamins and minerals but how can you have a successful weight-loss diet without reducing your daily intake of vitamins and minerals?
Of course, the answer to this question depends a lot on your diet but one beverage can be very helpful during this very challenging time of the year.
Yerba Mate is a great source of not only vitamins but also minerals and other nutrients. This traditional South American beverage contains vitamin A, C, E, B1, B2, B5, niacin (B3) as well as important minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, manganese, selenium, potassium, and phosphorus. All these important nutrients are necessary to sustain a healthy life and vital to promote energy, a key element for any diet.
Native to subtropical South America in northeastern Argentina, Bolivia, southern Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay, Yerba Mate leaves contain caffeine and can promote a boost of energy as well as a variety of other health benefits. Research suggests that yerba mate can help regulate cholesterol levels, increasing HDL and reducing LDL. Researchers also believe that drinking yerba mate infusions may also reduce the risk for cardiovascular diseases.
Yerba Mate can be considered one of the healthiest herbs as researchers have concluded that it’s difficult to find a plant which can match mate’s nutritional value. Mate is more nutritious than green tea and studies have shown that mate can edge all the commonly used stimulants such as coffee, green tea, kola nut, cocoa and guarana, as it delivers more energy and nutrition.
