Can you drink mate tea everyday?
Many studies have shown that yerba mate, if consumed daily, improves cardiovascular health by reducing cholesterol levels between 15% and 18%, which can prevent diseases such as arteriosclerosis. It also has a slight hypotensive and vasodilating effect that may be beneficial for people with high blood pressure.

Yerba mate is an herbal tea made from the leaves and twigs of the Ilex paraguariensis plant. The leaves are typically dried over a fire, then steeped in hot water to make the tea.
Is mate healthier than green tea?
Yerba mate also appears to have a higher antioxidant concentration than green tea (as well as other tea-based and non-tea-based drinks). This, in turn, makes it superior when it comes to preventing oxidative stress and negative health effects.
