Yerba Mate helps you lose weight. There is scientific evidence for this!

On the blog of our yerba mate store, we often discussed the slimming properties of yerba mate. Today we will look at the matter from a slightly different perspective. Argentine researchers decided to investigate the effects of yerba on cholesterol and fat level and conducted a study involving a group of volunteers. What results did it bring? Read on to find out!

Yerba mate and its slimming properties. How does it work?

The slimming properties of yerba mate are, next to the high caffeine content, among the main factors why more and more people are reaching for a popular South American brew. The effect of weight reduction is related with absorbing fewer fats, inhibiting one of the stages of cholsterol synthesis, and generally accelerating metabolism. A more extensive description of these properties can be found in one of our earlier texts. Of course, Paraguayan holly alone is not enough. To get a slim figure, you also need a balanced diet and physical activity. However, it is hard to deny that yerba mate will be very helpful for those struggling to lose weight.

Weight loss treatment with yerba mate. The study of Argentinian scientists.

In today's blog entry we will look at the research of scientists from the Argentine Universidad Juan Agustín Maza. They decided to check how yerba mate consumption would affect weight reduction. The researchers invited to a study a group of women struggling with obesity. They divided them into two groups. People from the first group were recommended to consume two liters of water a day. The other group was to drink yerba mate instead of water. Every 15 days routine tests were performed. Cholesterol and triacylglycerol levels and weight were checked. The effects exceeded all expectations!

According to Rafael Pérez Elizalde, head of the university's laboratory for digestive diseases, there were noticeable differences between the two groups undergoing the experiment. The level of bad cholesterol in bodies of those who drank yerba mate was on average 15% lower than in case of women who were given water. There was also a significant, as much as thirty-five percent drop in triacylglycerol levels. It is worth emphasizing once again that the only difference in the menu of both studied groups was the presence (or lack thereof) of infusions based on yerba mate.
