How much mate should I drink per day?

How much mate should I drink per day?

If you have trouble waking up in the morning, or staying focused throughout the day, you have probably already resorted to caffeinated drinks. Mate is also a source of caffeine, but will present a difference with coffee. In fact, mate contains both caffeine and theobromine! This combination therefore offers a long-term energizing effect, which means no “kick” effect like coffee! However, as we know, excess caffeine is bad for your health. According to the WHO, we should not exceed 3 cups of coffee per day, or 400 mg of caffeine. But what about mate?

How does the caffeine in mate work?

What are the side effects of mate?

How many mate infusions per day?

How does the caffeine in mate work?

Mate contains an energizing substance commonly called Mateine : it is composed of caffeine, theine and theobromine. These 3 compounds act as physical but also nervous stimulants, which can limit fatigue and allow you to remain active over a long period !

  • Caffeine is a rapid stimulant , it will act on the physical and cerebral level.
  • Theine has a cerebral stimulating effect, which will act over time, i.e. a few hours.
  • Theobromine, which is also found in cocoa and generally associated with good humor , limits nervousness or excitement.

This mixture of substances contained in mateine ​​will make mate an unusual energy drink .

What are the side effects of mate?

Just like any caffeinated energy drink, it is important to pay attention to our mate intake during the day . Although sensitivity to caffeine is unique to each person, we can list some side effects, such as insomnia, nervousness, or stomach irritation. If you already have sleep disorders or anxiety disorders, we advise you to limit yourself to one mate per day , and to listen to your physical feelings following the consumption of mate.

On the other hand, if you have been drinking mate for a long time, you should be accustomed to the effects of mate , and be used to managing your quantity but also the time at which you drink your mate .

If you are new to mate, we advise you not to consume more than 3 to 4 infusions per day, but also to be careful to avoid drinking it in the evening, for example.

The stimulating effects of this drink, if not desired , can possibly cause you sleep disturbances or slight insomnia. Obviously, it's all about moderation , and it's important in this kind of situation to listen to how your body feels, because sensitivity to caffeine varies enormously from one person to another.

Mate may cause mild side effects if drunk in excess

How many mate infusions per day?

If you decide to drink your mate as an infusion, in a cup or in a bottle of mate infusion , we advise you to drink only 2 bottles throughout the day, in order to respect the daily doses of caffeine recommended by the WHO .

How many times can I fill my traditional mate calabash?

If you consume your mate in the traditional way , that is to say in a mate calabash , as well as with the bombilla , we recommend that you keep your consumption reasonable and not go above 3 to 4 mates per day ! Although some Argentines consume up to 2L of mate per day, it is important to listen to your body and do what you feel.

If you don't yet know how to make your mate, we'll explain it to you right here !

Traditionally, mate is drunk from a calabash.

Now, it should be taken into account that these side effects are only caused by excessive consumption , and that it is very unlikely that you will experience them if you keep a reasonable consumption with 1 or 2 mates per day. day !

Mate has a number of benefits, in addition to its energizing effect, although it is mainly consumed for this purpose.
