Recently, Paraguayan holly leaves (mate tea leaves) were approved by the Nationa

Recently, Paraguayan holly leaves (mate tea leaves) were approved by the National Health Commission and officially became a new food ingredient. Paraguayan holly is a plant of the genus Ilex of the Ilex family. In fact, the more familiar Kuding tea is also made from the leaves of the Ilex plant of the Ilex family. Therefore, many people think that the flavor of yerba mate is similar to that of Kuding tea.


The main exporting countries of yerba mate are Argentina and Brazil, and the largest overseas markets are Syria and Lebanon. Chile, France, and the United States are other major importing countries. In addition to traditional yerba mate tea leaves, you can now buy a variety of yerba mate tea bottles and cans, soft drinks, food, cosmetics, etc. online.

          

In fact, during the 2022 Qatar World Cup, yerba mate tea caused a small craze in China, and many street drink chains launched related drinks at that time.


In South America, yerba mate specialty stores are as common as coffee shops in North America and Europe, and drinking yerba mate has deep cultural roots. In addition to being a beverage, yerba mate is also used as a tonic, diuretic, to relieve fatigue, suppress appetite, etc. It is also used to treat various gastrointestinal injuries and diseases. It is also used to cleanse the intestines. It is often used to treat constipation. In Brazil, yerba mate is often used to improve digestive tract problems, renal colic, neuralgia, depression, fatigue and obesity. A paste of Paraguay holly leaves is also used to improve skin ulcers (mainly due to its high tannin content).


In addition to South America, mate tea also has a very long history of use around the world.

In Europe, it is used for weight loss, relief of physical fatigue and neurological depression, improvement of rheumatic pain, and psychogenic and fatigue-related headaches.

In Germany, it has become a very popular weight loss product. There is a monograph in Germany that specifically introduces mate tea, and also approved the use of mate tea to relieve mental and physical fatigue.

In France, yerba mate is approved as a nutritional supplement, to aid weight loss, and as a diuretic. It also appears in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia (1996) as being used to relieve fatigue, weight loss and headaches.

In the United States, James Balch, MD, recommends yerba mate for treating arthritis, headaches, hemorrhoids, edema, obesity, fatigue, stress, constipation, allergies, and hay fever, noting that it “can purify Blood, regulates the nervous system, slows aging, stimulates nerves, controls appetite, stimulates cortisol production, and is thought to enhance the therapeutic effects of other herbs.”

In addition, mate tea is now also grown in India. The Indian Ayurvedic Phamacopoeia lists mate tea as a treatment for psychogenic headaches, neuropathic depression, fatigue and rheumatic pain.


Many studies have shown that yerba mate has significant antioxidant activity. Its high antioxidant properties are mainly due to the fact that yerba mate tea leaves are rich in polyphenols, especially caffeine derivatives, which have strong antioxidant properties. Mate tea leaves have been shown to inhibit lipid peroxidation, especially low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation. LDL oxidation is considered to be the initiating factor in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Another in vitro study showed that yerba mate can inhibit the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGE) and is as effective as two AGE inhibitor drugs. The antioxidant activity of yerba mate has been confirmed by numerous literatures. The Steaz brand in the United States, which specializes in producing organic tea drinks, also has an organic yerba mate drink that focuses on antioxidants.


In fact, the reason why yerba mate is so popular is not only for its health-promoting effect, but most importantly for its refreshing effect. 200ml of yerba mate contains about 71.8 mg of caffeine, while the same amount of cappuccino contains about 86.8 mg. Additionally, we know that drinking large amounts of coffee on a regular basis has a negative impact on bone mineral density, and studies in mice have shown that yerba mate is safe for bone health. There are also reports that yerba mate tea can refresh your mind without causing nervousness. These properties make it a healthier alternative to other caffeine-based stimulants. Singapore's Mate Mate Company's Berry vitamin Natural Energy Drink contains caffeine derived from yerba mate tea. France's PERRIER natural gas infused water has also launched a product with added caffeine derived from yerba mate, Perrier Energize.


Another amazing thing about yerba mate is that it can refresh your mind without affecting your sleep, and it can even help you sleep. Argentinian scientist Dr. Jesinor pointed out in the research report "The Mystery of the Special Effects of Mate" that mate is mild in nature and has an alcohol-like effect, but does not have the side effects of alcohol. It can relax the muscles and surrounding blood vessels, stimulate the central nervous system, making people more energetic and focused, but at the same time it has an adaptive effect on the central nervous system, thus balancing the function of the body's biological clock and improving the taste of the human body. Sleep can be promoted when sleep awareness is enhanced. There is also a mood-relieving and sleep-aiding drink called Go Mate, which contains Mate extract.


In addition, yerba mate tea extract has also been shown to relax smooth muscle, increase bile flow, and inhibit vasoconstriction. Mate tea also contains bitter compounds called saponins, which can help reduce inflammation throughout the body and have anti-inflammatory effects.

          

In addition to being used as a functional raw material, there are also cases in the literature of using yerba mate ultrafine powder as a natural green pigment.

          

Will yerba mate, which has so many functional properties, be the next ingredient to break out of the industry? We'll see!
