Discover Yerba Mate and Energize the Brazilian Way


Mate Chai blends the delicious flavor and the health benefits in two premier beverages of indigenous cultures. Yerba Mate, the energizing beverage of choice in South America and Chai, the 5,000 year old healing drink from India. Traditional Chai spices were highly sought after by the Greeks, Romans and the nobility of Western Europe during the Middle Ages. For centuries they have been transported thousands of miles from India to Europe and have often been worth more than gold. Mate Factor makes these two traditions available to you today in one revolutionary blend.


Yerba Mate is more than just an invigorating brew. It is one of nature's best sources of antioxidants. Studies reveal Mate to be higher in antioxidants than green tea, partly due to its high Polyphenol content. Yerba Mate also contains vitamins including C, B1 and B2, as well as minerals important for metabolism including Chromium, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Potassium and Zinc. The Mate is rich in bio-active compounds including Chlorophyll, Pantothenic Acid, Quercetin and Rutin.


Cinnamon is strengthening and promotes steady energy throughout the day. Cardamom is a mood elevator, helps relieve gas and eliminates bad breath. Cloves invigorate the entire body and are beneficial during the Cold Season. Black Pepper is a powerful anti-oxidant and promotes healthy digestive system. Ginger is proven to both prevent and treat motion sickness and is also fortifying for both women and men. Nutmeg relieves stress. Chicory contains inulin which helps stabilize blood sugar levels. Chicory also is calming and cleansing.

What is Yerba Mate? Try it for an Herbal Energy Boost!

If you haven’t heard of yerba mate, that’s about to change! This tasty, traditional South American beverage is taking the world by storm, which should come as no surprise considering the flavorful brew is supposed to be as strong as coffee, as beneficial as tea and as blissful as chocolate.

What is yerba mate?

Yerba mate is made from leaves of Ilex Paraguariensis, a species of holly tree found in the South American rainforest. They are usually placed over a fire to dry, and then steeped, much like tea, in hot water. The beverage is traditionally enjoyed in a container known as a gourd or calabash and sipped through a metal straw with a filter to eliminate any stray leaf fragments. Although yerba mate is typically served hot, those in warm climates may prefer to ice the beverage.

Yerba mate benefits

Looking for an alternative to your morning coffee of afternoon tea? Nutrient- and antioxidant-rich yerba mate may very well be the solution you’re seeking. Although further research is needed, studies have shown that “yerba mate leaves have antioxidant, antiobesity, antidiabetic, digestive improvement and cardiovascular properties, and chemopreventative ones (preventing cellular damage that may cause chronic diseases),” according to the National Institutes of Health.
