Wake me up Detox!
Detox Yerba Mate and Chilli Tea
Yerba Mate is said to provide a buzz as would coffee but without the unpleasant jitters or the crash afterwards, the perfect detox tea. It is a myth that it does not contain caffeine and the stimulating effects come from a compound called Mateine, In actual fact the term Mateine is actually caffeine and it said to have derived from the Mate plant.
It also contains theophylline and theobromine similar to cacao, which are natural vasodilators and helps relax blood vessels and is used to combat high blood pressure.
Yerba is said to have over 90 per cent more antioxidants than green tea, with immune boosting capabilities, it can also slow ageing, reduce stress and insomnia.
