Our St Remio Vitality Tea is the perfect herbal pick-me-up. Each capsule contains a number highly active ingredients and one of those is Mate.
Native to South America, Mate leaves come from the Mate tree which is found in countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. Containing various nutrients that help to maintain overall good health, there's no surprise it is one of the amazing ingredients in our Vitality Tea. Here are some of our favourite benefits of Mate:
Rich in Antioxidants - Mate tea is very high in antioxidants; in fact, it has about 90% more antioxidants than plain old green tea! With significant immune boosting properties, Mate can slow the signs of aging, detoxify blood and also helps reduce stress and insomnia.
Enhance Focus - Drinkers of mate tea have said that they have experienced an increase in mental energy, clarity and focus - yes please!
- Enhance Physical Endurance - Take note of this one before your next gym session, because the chemical compounds and nutrients in mate affect your metabolism in a way that makes your body use carbohydrates more efficiently. This means you'll get more energy from the food you eat and burn more of the calories your body has stored in fat cells. Regular mate consumption also helps keep lactic acid from building up in your muscles so you can decrease post workout soreness and cut your recovery time.
