Yerba Mate':good for you: would you drink it?: it helps save rain forest people


Google assembled these pictures


Yerba Mate: Guayaki Company


Would you drink a tea if you knew it helps the people in the rainforest sustain themselves and keep the rainforest intact? Yerba mate does that and Guayaki writes in its' tea boxes about the work that their company does with the rainforest and its' people.It uses the second largest rainforest in Paraguay. The amount of antioxcidants is huge; much larger than in other drinks.


This is another link which shows that Argentenians also drink the Herba mate' in those gourds with the family all around them! It has become avery social drink for sharing with friend and family.


So tell us ; would you try it?

I'd research it first, but I'd drink it if it really does help them & my body.
Of course, I'm not much of a tea or coffee drinker...I prefer diet sodas...think they could come up with one of those healthy & helpful for the rain people? ;)

I am a tea lover, but primarily of the genuine tea plants, not the teas made of other plants.   Any plant is biologically active -- not all are good reactions for every person.  Knowledge is wisdom when it comes to supplements and herbs.  I sue plenty of supplements but I do extensive research on them before ingesting them.  There are now PDR's for herbs and supplements with accurate information from the leading world authority on such -- the German E Commission.
I wouldn't drink a tea just to spend the money on it before I thoroughly researched its safety and possible adverse effects.
loving you

 I would probably try it if it was not harmful and helped me stay awake all night,
