Yerba mate has been used as a beverage since the time of the ancient Indians of Brazil and Paraguay and is considered a national drink in several South American countries.
It is used as a tonic, diuretic and as a stimulant to reduce fatigue, suppress appetite and aid gastric function. It also has been used as a depurative (to promote cleansing and excretion of waste).
In Brazil, mate is said to stimulate the nervous and muscular systems and is used for digestive problems, renal colic, nerve pain, depression, fatigue, and obesity. It also has bitter qualities which help stimulate digestion.
