The reputed health benefits of Yerba Mate, the national beverage in Argentina, boosts the immune system (high in vitamin C), improves digestion, good for PMS (as a diuretic; relieves bloating), and as a mild stimulant that helps to improve mental clarity (comparable to a cup of black tea). A 6 ounce cup contains 50 mg of a caffeine-like substance called "mateine", which has the same stimulatory effects as caffeine.
