Yerba mate is naturally caffeinated and made from the nourishing dried leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree (Ilex paraguariensis). This plant is found in the wild but is also cultivated on plantations similarly to familiar kinds of tea.
The leaves of the rainforest mate tree naturally contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids and abundant antioxidants. In fact, The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society in 1964 concluded "it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate in nutritional value" and that yerba mate contains "practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life” providing invigoration, focus and nourishment.
