Yerba Mate: The Genius Energy Herb

Yerba Mate, or lex paraguariensis, has a mystical and fascinating rich history that dates back to pre-colombian times among the Guaraní and Tupi tribes of Northern Argentina, Southern Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay. Some believe it was a gift the natives called Caa from the goddess of the moon (Yari). Other sources attribute it to a fair-skinned God called Pa’ I Shume. It was even used as currency for trade among tribes. Either way, it's health benefits are certainly heavenly.
