The best times to drink mate

Latin America's flagship drink, mate comes from a plant called ilex paraguariensis . Mate has many health benefits; it is a healthy, energizing and fat-burning drink! In this case, when should you drink your mate, in order to obtain the best results ?

Here, we have compiled a list of all the good opportunities to drink mate, hot or cold, in winter and summer!

  1. Can you drink mate in the morning?
  2. What are the benefits of mate for sport?
  3. Why drink mate at work?
  4. Are there digestive properties in mate?

1. When you wake up in the morning, an ultra-vitamin cocktail

Thanks to its caffeine content (3x less than in coffee but a little more than in green tea), mate is an excellent ally to keep you awake, as soon as you get out of bed! It will keep you in shape all day long, the energy felt when drinking mate is diffuse and long-lasting, unlike coffee which is a stimulant , you can take it in the traditional way in a calabash or drink it in the infusion bottle , to prepare it in seconds and take it with you on your morning commute .

If you have trouble getting out of bed, try replacing your morning coffee with a mate , and you may find that you will stay awake much better in the long term, enough to have a good day.

Mate is not content to simply be energizing , it also contains lots of good things for your health. It is a drink rich in antioxidants , but also in minerals , such as calcium, manganese, iron, selenium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus . mate is also full of vitamins, such as vitamins A, C, E, B1 and B2 !

You can drink mate first thing in the morning

2. Before training

If you need to feel in great shape or simply need a natural boost, mate will wake you up in an instant ! Thanks to its long-lasting energizing (non-exciting) action, perfect for intense sporting or endurance activity. Yerba mate will help you achieve your goals and be more focused during your training or during important dates/competitions.

It is a drink which will also allow you to recover better at the muscular level (thanks to its powerful antioxidant properties) , the ideal companion for your gym or your training sessions! Some athletes are already big fans of mate and consume it daily. We can cite Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Suarez, Pogba, Yassine Bahassa (in photo) and also Del Potro!

3. At work or during revision

At the office , do you easily fall asleep in front of your screen and find it difficult to concentrate? mate will be an ideal drink for you! In fact, its effects on your mind will increase your concentration and fight against drowsiness .

Mate is known to combat physical and mental exhaustion , which comes in handy if you can't wake up properly. This plant promotes the improvement of memory and intellectual capacities, in particular thanks to the matein (a molecule similar to caffeine) which it contains. Enough to become the most productive person in your office ! This drink is particularly used by many Argentine students during revision periods, in order to remain productive throughout the year .

The positive point : You can reinfuse the same mate more than 10 times during the day (without changing the herb) , it's much more ecological than the coffee machine, lasts you all day and it also feels good on the doorstep -cash ! To fully enjoy it, we advise you to enjoy your mate in the traditional way , that is to say with a mate calabash and the bombilla !

4. After a good meal

Mate is a great way to have energy for the mind and body, but the benefits of mate on digestion are also well known ! It has diuretic properties , which will improve your digestion, and also eliminate toxins . It is also a thermogenic drink , meaning that it will have a fat-burning action , and the caffeine present in mate will also regulate your appetite, which avoids snacking between meals .

The effects of mate are numerous, this is one of the reasons why the Guaranis (an indigenous people who consume mate living in the Amazon rainforest) have considered it a miracle drink for several decades.

As you will have understood from this article, there are no perfect times or bad times to drink mate, it all depends on your activity and your personal routine.

Mate is a drink that adapts to your needs and your lifestyle.

And you, when is your best time to enjoy a good mate?

Excellent, mate has allowed me to reduce smoking and perhaps soon to stop. By drinking this mate, it reduces the lack of nicotine but above all it makes me sick of cigarettes!
