YERBA MATE - TESTIMONIALS
Gloria Segura - USA
I have been a coffee drinker all my life. Tea was always out
of the question for me. On the beginning of 2008 I was diagnosed
with Metabolic Syndrome which includes high cholesterol,
blood pressure and high blood sugar. I was 40 pounds overweight
and taking many medications to control the disease. I changed
my lifestyle by starting drinking at least two liters of
Yerba Mate a day, changed my diet by eating organic whole
foods and quit all the vitamins and supplements I was taking.
In less than two weeks yerba mate became part of my life
and became addicted to it. Not only the tea is delicious
but it makes me feel well and healthy when I drink it. Six
months after my health resolution, I went to do my routine
metabolic blood testing and I was very much surprised that
my health condition was completely reversed and had lost
20 pounds. My endocrinologist was very surprised and had
no choice than to stop all my medications. I'm confident
that yerba mate has immensely helped me get my health in
track and I will be drinking it forever. Thank you for offering
such a great product! Sincerely, Gloria Segura

Secret Wonder Tea
I found this product by
reading an issue of Women's World. I'm a nurse that was
60 pounds over weight.
I joined Weight Watcher's approximately 8 weeks ago. I have
lost some weight, but found myself becoming hungry in the
middle of my shift. After reading the article in the magazine
I thought I'd try Mate. OH MY GOD, it's great stuff. I have
found that since I started drinking 2-3 cups of the tea
on a day to day basis that I have a lot more energy and
have found myself without hunger pains. In fact, I have
found that I have to remind myself to eat because I don't
get hungry. It's a great product, great taste and am now
finding it hard to purchase in our part of the country.
Everyone else must have learned of the secret wonder tea
A Magic Tonic
While meeting my friend's daughter from California I was pleased to be introduced to what this California girl calls "the best alternative to coffee."
I was immediately intrigued. Me being an on and off
coffee drinker since the age of 17 when the whole Starbucks
explosion began in Seattle, I had learned the hard way that
the media will convince anybody that anything is healthy
just to make the almighty buck. What all these Starbucks-duped
media fools said was healthy has been linked with numerous
health problems such as elevated cholesterol, heart disease,
diabetes, cancer, increased levels of "the stress hormone"
cortisol, spontaneous abortion in pregnant women, and the
one that is totally obvious to anyone who has tried to kick
coffee--ADDICTION!!!! And the lies still continue today.
The latest I have heard is that it helps you lose weight.
I would be sick at my stomach right now thinking about it
if it were not for my morning serving of mate. What is funny
is the numerous times I have quit drinking coffee I have
lost weight only to regain it after being once again sucked
into Starbucks. The roller coaster had gotten me so frazzled
and that is why I gladly tried what this California girl
went on and on about-- even going so far as to go onto the
internet and print off information about mate for me to
read. While it was brewing I read the pages and pages of
documentation about this miraculous tonic. I had not even
tasted the stuff and I was convinced that my battle with
coffee was about to end. Then she brought me a mate latte
made with cream, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and a little
Splenda (I am a low-carb dieter). It tasted so good but
that was not the main attraction. What totally blew me away
was that I was stimulated but not jittery yet at the same
time totally relaxed with a peaceful happy feeling.And what
is so wonderful about this magic tonic is that every benefit
that I have read about has been TRUE!!!!! And I have not
had a cup of coffee in 3 weeks. And I feel fantastic. I
have not yelled at my family because of the calming effect
mate has on me and I wake up in the morning refreshed because
of the good nights sleep I get (I was previously a horrible
insomniac) and the heartburn usually associated with drinking
coffee is nonexistent and I don't feel like I HAVE to drink
mate. Now if only the media would catch on they could honestly
inspire and help Americans kick the coffee habit that has
us all checking into hospitals. I envision Americans walking
around feeling like I do after drinking mate and I think
world peace just might within the realm of possibility.

I don't know other health benefits, but I know it works for
me in loosing weight.
About 2 years ago, I attended a reggae concert in the northern
CA. Reggae on the river. I was introduced to yerba mate
by a beautiful girl I met there. I was skeptical at first,
and bought 2 bags to just preserve the rain forest. At the
concert, feeling very tired, my friend told me to drink
the yerba mate to energize my body. I first drank
it cold and the good thing I noticed that I was able to
refill the same potion several time without losing its strenght.
Back home, I kept drinking as a tea or mix it with my regular
herbal tea. 2 weeks later, I started loosing weight without
for reasons I ignored. I was afraid. I made an appointment
to see my Doctor. At the weight in, the nurse, was worried
on my weight loss. I was embarrassed and told her, I am
in weight loss diet, but I was not. She replied back to
me that, It is very dangerous to loose this amount of weight
in a month as my previous appt was a month ago. The DR addressed
the same issue. It took me 2 weeks to realize that the yerba
mate had some thing to do with it. I therefore experimented
it. I stopped drinking it for 1 month and half. I went to
the GYM to lift weight and took some weight gain supplement
to compensate my weigh loss. I gain back my weight of 207
lbs and I am 6 ft. I started to drink Yerba mate 32
oz iced water cold , 4 times a days a work. (refill the
same serving in a water bottle). I realized how many pounds
I loss after 2 weeks. I
don't know other health benefits, but I know it works for
me in loosing weight. This a true story. -- Adama

Gift From Heaven
Years ago when
I was in the US Army, I went to Argentina for some time.
I drank Yerba mate there and brought home several
pounds and several gourds and cups and such. Since then
I had not found any here in the states. About 3 months ago
my doctor told me I needed to change my diet, as well as
find a way to lower my stress level. With my work, it was
hard to do that and give up the coffee. My health continued
to decline and I kept gaining weight. I needed to do somethig
fast. All the the pills I was given just took all my energy
out of me and made me gain weight.
I was in Evermans food store in Pensacola Florida and there
it was on the shelf - Yerba mate and it was in loose
form like I had several years before. It was like a gift
Well, since I have replaced the coffee, tea, sodas, and
all of my prescriptions to reduce stress. I have been full
of energy all day. I have
lost 10 pounds and still loosing weight. I can think more
clearly, and I even sleep better at night! I have
made Guayakí Yerba mate a major part of my
diet and plan to continue to do so for years to come!
Thanks for so much,
i am a college student who became hooked on mate during high school--my friend has an Argentinian mother who is completely addicted and in love with mate and she shared that love with her daughter and all her daughter's friends--luckily, this includes me! i absolutely love having yerba mate gatherings at school, getting all my friends to sit around and unwind and chat about life and love as we sip energizing and delicious mate from my gourd and bombilla. it's the perfect way to bring people together peacefully and harmoniously, and i can't recommend it enough. and plus, mate is DELICIOUS!
Refreshing and Energizing!
Hi! A friend just shared some Yerba Mate with me.
It is a very refreshing and energizing beverage with the wonderful
properties of curbing your appetite! I found the later statement
to be extremely helpful since I have been battling my weight.
I am no longer always hungry.
Another dynamic reason to partake is the fact it does not have
the negative properties of caffeine. I can only drink one
cup of coffee in the morning or I will be up all night with the
negative side effects of caffeine. Yerba mate has the wonderful
properties of energizing and not keeping you up at night.
Friendly faces shaking up Mate Latte's
The first time I tried Yerba Mate was at the Natural Foods
Expo in Baltimore 1999. The show Floor was like a mountain
to tackle not to mention that I came to the expo sporting
the flu. When I bumped into the Guayakí table,
there were friendly faces shaking up Mate Latte's. To my
delight not only did it taste great but it gave me that
extra boost of energy that I needed to make it around that
conference center several times with no signs of fatigue.
Thanks to yerba mate by the time I finished my rounds
on the floor My flu was gone and I was energized enough
to began my Journey back to Detroit, MI.
I also use your yerba
mate tea as an appetite suppressant when I am dieting or
I was hooked...
While at work I noticed one of my co-workers lost quite
a bit of weight. I asked her her secret and she shared with
me a cup of yerba mate tea. Well I was hooked the taste
was so smooth and right away I could feel a calming effect.
I came to your website and bought some tea. I do not drink
my morning cup of tea. Now I enjoy a cup of Yera mate. I
am in love with this tea. Well just resently I have been
having some health issue's and I wanted to share with you
that not only is this tea delish. it is alao my stress reliever
it is getting me through a very stressful time right now.
So thank you for offering us this fabulous tea!! Oh by the
way I have also lost about 8 lbs in about a month. xoxo
I Love This Tea!
I drink at least a cup a day. Usually two. After reading the
Woman's World article, I bought the only flavor available
at my local health store, the Traditional. Skeptical and
not a hot tea drinker, I was amazed at the taste. Not bad.
After adding a fresh lemon slice, I am now addicted to this
tea. After recently losing
73 pounds naturally, I drink this to help maintain
my weight. As a mother of three, I thrive on the energy
boost I get. My daily cup of hot yerba mate tea with
a lemon wedge is my way of relaxing and doing something
good for my health. I have tried other teas but the only
tea I care for is my yerba mate.
It is all about the journey. Just recently I changed my diet and decided to become a vegetarian. I started shopping at Whole Foods. I was not a regular coffee drinker but I did indulge every now and again. I was walking through the aisles of Whole Foods and decided I needed tea. I bought Yerba Mate. I was not a regular tea drinker either.......that is until now. I feel GREAT to say the least. I am losing weight. I have so much energy. I feel on top of the world. In 2005 I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. I went through all the treatments...surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. I was the best patient..had a good attitude. Well, my autopilot ways crashed when I completed treatment. Over the next several months I found myself sinking into a depression. I gained weight..which was not good for my health. I did not care about anything. Well, I wanted to turn my situation around so I changed my diet. Coming across this tea was an added blessing. Initially I thought it was just the change in diet that attributed to me having so much energy. I read the box from the tea and I was like, 'Wow is it the tea that has me feeling so great'. I researched it and it is definitely the tea. I know my change in diet is a plus too but your company just do not know how much my life has changed. I am a forever customer to this tea. I read a testimonial where the person said it is costly in their area but they still purchase it. I am totally in agreement with him. It does not matter the cost for me, this tea has aided in me wanting to participate in life. I know there are more great days to come.
