Getting Skinny With Yerba Mate Green Tea

The slimming effects of green tea have been well publicized, and preliminary evidence suggests that green tea may have a mild effect on weight loss. Studies report reduced body weight and body fat, as well as increased fat oxidation and thermogenesis.

But be careful what product you choose. Ready-to-drink, bottled tea drinks often contain concentrated flavorings, sugar or artificial sweeteners, and very little green tea. Some provide calories, but little or none of the weight-controlling benefits of green tea.

The best way to drink green tea is from brewed tea leaves. Most research is based on this form of the tea, which contains no calories. Powdered iced tea mixes fall somewhere between brewed tea and ready-to-drink beverages. If you drink them be sure to keep track of the calories.

You might also notice green tea added to foods in the form of tea extract. Whereas some studies have found the extract to be safe, others have not. So your best bet to get the possible slimming effects of green tea is to drink it brewed, in its non-caloric form.

Enter Yerba Mate
Ilex paragauriensis, also known a Yerba Mate' can really aid you in losing pounds faster. Yerba Mate' is typically served as a tea made from the leaves of this plant. Yerba Mate' thrives in a rainforest environment, and has been used in South America for many, many years.

Yerba Mate can be found in many health food stores in the United States or from Steviva.com. This tea acts like a stimulant, helping to boost thermo genesis. The chemical responsible for this "fat burning" affect is known as mateine. This chemical is a close relative of another well known stimulant, caffeine. It also contains small quantities of theophylline and theobromine which help the thermogenic process.

Mateine seems to have the same stimulatory affects as caffeine without the side effects that caffeine has in some people.

Yerba Mate' also contains antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the body. It is also claimed that this herb can help improve mental clarity, digestion, and helps to sustain your physical energy levels.

Loose Yerba Mate tea can be brewed hot or cold. If you are brewing it hot, you must be sure that you never boil it, as this reduces the thermogenic properties of this plant.

To add extra flavor to this tea, you can use stevia or mint. Is is especially good with Steviva Brand loose tea cut stevia leaves or a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder.

To enhance your weight loss, it is suggested that you drink a cup of tea, hot or cold, a half an hour prior to meals. The stimulant affect of this tea helps to reduce your appetite, and causes you to want to eat less.

Adding this tea to your regime of exercise and healthy eating can help you lose weight without having to take prescribed medication.
