Club-Mate is made from Mate - an old South American jungle plant. With its naturally occurring unique combination of stimulants, maté still works miracles, even in this day and age.
Mate is the most important alkaloid (semi luxury) beverage in the southern and middle parts of South America. It has been enabling the native Indians to bear extreme hardships all the way back to ancient times, but also is appreciated by the immigrating Europeans. The stimulating effect is caused by a favourable amount of caffeine, in a form well suitable to anyone. Yerba’s influence on the neural system comes from its characteristics as a stimulant, this explains why it is so extremely effective against muscle fatigue. These physiological phenomena could repeatedly be observed. Tiredness after heavy work disappeared in a miraculous way after one sip of maté. Out of the yerba plant we produce an extract with pure sugar, used in bottling the Club-Mate drink. Mate tea is extremely popular in large parts of South America, the natives attribute many positive effects to it. So, it's no surprise, that maté is praised as the green gold of the Indians in Europe as well, a natural remedy and a magic potion.
In South America mate is usually prepared in a gourd. First, mate leaves are placed into the gourd, and boiling water is added carefully to allow the yerba mate to remain towards the bottom of the gourd. The yerba mate is allowed to cool below boiling, steeping into a tea in the process. As with other teas, the longer yerba mate steeps, the more potent it will be when it is prepared.
There is one full teaspoon of yerba-mate tea in every single bottle of Club-Mate . Therefore Club-Mate is a treat to your tongue and a necessity to your body. Club-Mate is made from premium class mate tea, but it's richer, lighter and sweeter than a self-made maté infusion. Well, let's listen to what a doctor says: Aside from reducing thirst, even when hiking or sunburn have made it almost impossible for you to bear. The stimulating effect, however, will not go to a point, where your well-being or need for sleep are affected in a negative way."
Your body needs a drink that tastes good, encourages best performance, but at the same time will not strain your heart.
