Common product questions answered
Serious yerba mate drinkers in South America drink at least 1 to 4 liters of yerba mate per day. You can only determine yourself how much is enough for you. If you are sensitive to caffeine we recommend to start slowly and increase your consumption over time.
Yerba mate does not cause cancer. There has never been a scientific study showing that mate causes cancer. However, like tea, coffee, or any hot beverage, if consumed directly after the water has been brought to a full boil, you may increase your chances of esophagitis, which could, in turn, enhance your chances of developing throat cancer. Make sure you drink your mate with very warm water, never hot.
Millions of women in South America continue to safely drink yerba mate during pregnancy. Nevertheless, you should still consult with your doctor to best advise on your specific needs. Generally, it is recommend that you limit your caffeine intake to around 300 mg per day during pregnancy.
