Mate is a wild shrub from Argentina and a relative of the holly

bush. Mate tea contains caffeine, but has a more relaxing effect

than most caffeinated drinks.

There is significant evidence that yerba mate is rich in

antioxidants. It may have other positive effects on health as well.

It seems to have a relaxing effect on muscles, compared to other

caffeinated drinks which do not have this effect.
