Did any of you catch yerba mate on the NBC Today Show a few months ago? This video has been an extremely popular link on our website and newsletter. Yerba mate was highlighted as one of five life-changing foods! Check out the video here:

If you haven't already done so, I invite you to download our Yerba Mate FAQ. This pdf is a compilation of published research on yerba mate. (It has been downloaded over 15,000 times!)

Whether you're a first-time consumer or a loyal customer of Aviva, it's important to know that not all yerba mate is the same. Growing conditions, harvesting methods, and production routines greatly affect the end product. Here at Aviva, we're proud to bring you a unique Wild Harvest product of a pure leaf consistency that is shade grown in a sustainable way, which leaves a very small footprint on the surrounding landscape. This is in stark contrast to large plantation operations. As you sip on your next drink of Aviva, you can know that you're helping to preserve the Paraguayan forest and provide for the betterment of the workers on our ranch.

Yerba Mate Offers Healthy Lifestyle from Beverage World Magazine (Jan 2008)
excerpt from article:

Consumers are encouraged to "turn over a new leaf" in 2008 after newly compiled research highlights yerba mate tea's merits as a weight management tool. The New Year offers a fresh chance to make healthy lifestyle changes—and weight loss and fitness are always among the top resolutions. Millions of people in North America are desperately seeking an alternative to the fad diets that year after year provide them with initial weight loss, but don't 'stick' or inspire sustainable results.

Yerba mate is generating a buzz in Hollywood. Alicia Silverstone swears by organic Guayaki Yerba Mate to help give her healthy energy to get through long days of filming on the set, for example. Actress Amy Smart says that Guayaki Yerba Mate is one of her "favorite things" and is part of her daily morning routine. Matt Dillon, Meg Ryan and Gwyweth Paltrow are reported to be huge yerba mate fans, and even Hilary Clinton and Madonna have been cited as yerba mate lovers.

One reason it is gaining a celebrity following is because expert trainers to the stars, such as celebrity lifestyle coach Cameron Shayne, creator of the Budokon method based in Los Angeles, are recommending it.

"Unlike many weight loss aids, Yerba Mate is a balanced energy source that doesn’t deplete the body—it feeds it with nutrients to help stave off hunger and cravings," says Shayne, whom has advised stars including Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Meg Ryan and Renee Russo. Antioxidant-rich yerba mate contains 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids and an abundance of saponins (anti-inflammatory phytochemicals that bolster the immune system).

"Yerba mate provides a lot of 'good energy,'" says Shayne, “and that boosts peoples’ ability to exercise, which is so important for weight loss programs to stick around."

"Caffeine-sensitive people that drink mate don’t experience the jitters, stomach discomfort and headaches that are complaints from drinkers of coffee and energy drinks," adds Shayne.

Mate is a fitness fuel known to: assist the breakdown of carbs so more calories can be burned, increase cardiac efficiency and reduce build up of endurance-robbing lactic acid. It also has been found to relieve allergies by stimulating the adrenal glands to produce corticosteroids, which suppress inflammation and overactive immune responses to allergens, which opens the respiratory passages for better oxygen flow.

Aviva + Stevia + Spearmint = Hmmmmm...Good!
