If you are thinking about getting hooked on yerba mate there are a few things you should know like…
The Incredible Health Benefits Yerba Mate Provides
There are few foods or drinks that you can consume as a staple of your diet that can dare to compare to the health benefits of yerba mate. A study done in the 1960′s by the Pasteur Institute in Paris concluded that mate contains almost all the nutrition human beings require to sustain health.
It’s no wonder that it’s been use for hundred (possibly thousands) of years and the tradition continues to be passed down from generation to generation. It’s a healthy tradition that can be shared and help to bring people together as the world and it’s technology continue to advance and human isolation seems to be at an all time high.
I can hardly talk to a person today who isn’t on antidepressants or directly related to a person on anti-depressants. I believe, and I know I’ll take heat for this, that depression is primarily a social and nutritional deficiency and can be cured naturally. The research results of yerba mate curing depression are still limited but I believe that the social effects of the ritual of yerba mate have proven and will continue to prove beneficial to users of antidepressants.
By the way, can I tell you a secret. I once used antidepressants, and during the time I was using them I got seriously demented. I honestly think they are like poison for the mind and tell anyone who’s on them to find an alternative to cope. Give the “Mate” a try and tell me what you think.
It wouldn’t hurt to share your yerba mate the traditional way with some good upbeat people. I’ve found that the greatest cure for almost any case of the blues is to spend some quality time with positive people who share in your ideals, avoid sarcasm, sarcastic people, and have some goals to work towards.
I hope my ramblings have brought you some insight on both a social benefit of yerba mate as well as a positive mindset of life.
