Unimate sets itself apart from other Yerba Mate drinks in multiple ways. Unlike retail store options loaded with added sugar and synthetic caffeine, Unimate contains only natural caffeine and zero added sugar. It's backed by extensive research and clinical studies, making it a trusted choice for health benefits.

How much caffeine does each serving of Unimate contain?

Unimate yerba mate contains a moderate amount of caffeine comparable to a cup of coffee. While this level is generally considered low, it's crucial to note that individual tolerance to caffeine can vary. Some people may experience side effects like anxiety if they are particularly sensitive to caffeine. 

I do encourage my clients to be aware of their unique sensitivities and adjust their Unimate consumption accordingly. This way, it can be tailored to meet their individual health goals and preferences.

I have also written a blog article that discussed Unimate' s caffeine content, its potential link to those sensitive to caffeine. The article suggests that while caffeine often helps relieve headaches, it can trigger migraines in some individuals who are more sensitive to it. By being mindful of your body's response, you can enjoy the benefits of Unimate while minimizing any potential side effects.

How does Unimate improve the production of Ketones and Ketosis?

Unimate is an ultra-concentrated proprietary yerba mate extract packed with natural ingredients that enhance ketone production and support ketosis. Its active compounds stimulate fat metabolism and energy output, making it a go-to drink for those on a low-carb or ketogenic diet.

Ketones are generated when the body enters a state of ketosis, usually triggered by a lack of carbohydrates, forcing the body to burn fat for energy. Unimate aids in burning fat more efficiently, thereby boosting ketone production. Its natural caffeine content also helps curb appetite and reduce hunger, making it easier to adhere to a low-carb or ketogenic diet.

Studies indicate that yerba mate, the primary ingredient in Unimate, has a thermogenic effect that increases energy expenditure, supporting weight loss and ketone production. Yerba mate also improves insulin sensitivity and glucose uptake, helping to stabilize blood sugar levels and further promote ketosis.

Thanks to its specialized extraction and purification process, Unimate is rich in yerba mate's active ingredients that enhance ketone production and ketosis. By promoting fat metabolism, curbing appetite, and improving insulin sensitivity, Unimate is an excellent choice for those committed to a low-carb or ketogenic lifestyle.

Why is Unimate good for Intermittent Fasting?

Unimate is an ultra-concentrated proprietary yerba mate extract that synergizes perfectly with intermittent fasting for enhanced health benefits. One of its key advantages is its ability to increase the production of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone that regulates appetite and blood sugar levels. This makes it easier to stick to your fasting schedule by reducing hunger pangs.

Intermittent fasting itself has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation. When combined with Unimate, these benefits are amplified, helping you reach your health goals faster. Unimate's natural compounds, including chlorogenic acids, further aid in blood sugar regulation and offer antioxidant protection.

Unimate also contains theophylline and theobromine, which boost mental clarity and focus. This is particularly beneficial during fasting periods when cognitive function is already enhanced.

Unimate is an excellent addition to your intermittent fasting routine, offering appetite control, improved metabolic health, and mental clarity. It's a natural and effective way to boost your fasting benefits and achieve your health goals. To dive deeper into the specific question about Unimate and intermittent fasting, explore these related blog articles:

Is Unimate Yerba Mate suitable for use on a ketogenic or similar diet?

Yes, Unimate is an ultra-concentrated proprietary yerba mate extract that's well-suited for ketogenic or similar low-carb diets. It contains no added sugar and only natural caffeine, making it an ideal choice for those on a low-carb regimen.

Unimate helps curb hunger and cravings, a feature that's especially beneficial during intermittent fasting. This allows your body to focus on burning fat for energy.

Unimate also aids in the production of ketones, a cleaner fuel source that generates less oxidative stress compared to glucose. This supports both mental and metabolic functions during ketosis. If you're physically active, Unimate can help your body use fat as fuel during workouts and enhance muscle contractions.

Unimate is a fantastic option for anyone following a ketogenic or similar low-carb diet. It helps control hunger, supports ketone production, and offers an energy boost. All these benefits make it a top choice for enhancing overall health and well-being while on a low-carb diet.

I read that Unimate helps reduce Oxidative Stress. What is that?

Oxidative stress occurs when there's an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in the body. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells, while antioxidants neutralize these free radicals, preventing cellular harm. An excess of free radicals over antioxidants leads to oxidative stress.

This imbalance has been associated with various health issues, including cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and diabetes. It can also cause inflammation and tissue damage. Maintaining a balance between free radicals and antioxidants is crucial for preventing oxidative stress.

Unimate is an ultra-concentrated proprietary yerba mate extract rich in natural antioxidants like polyphenols. Unicity's specialized extraction and purification process ensures that Unimate contains the maximum amount of active ingredients, including chlorogenic acids, which also combat oxidative stress.

Consuming Unimate supports your body's antioxidant defense system, helping to reduce oxidative stress. This may contribute to preventing chronic diseases and promoting overall health and wellness.

Is it true that Unimate will boost my mood?

Yes, it's true that Unimate can boost your mood. Unimate is an ultra-concentrated proprietary yerba mate extract that's backed by clinical studies. One such study used the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire to measure the emotional well-being of participants who consumed Unimate. The results showed a statistically significant increase in happiness scores, moving from "somewhat happy" to "rather happy."

Unimate contains up to 375 times more chlorogenic acids than other yerba mate drinks. These compounds have been shown to elevate mood, energy levels, and support healthy brain function.

Research on yerba mate has revealed its impact on dopamine levels, which play a key role in motivation and mood. If you find yourself struggling with focus or experiencing afternoon brain fog, yerba mate can help you concentrate and power through your day.

Yerba mate contains natural caffeine, a stimulant that can further improve mood and mental performance. However, it's important to consume Unimate in moderation, as excessive caffeine can have negative effects on your mood.

Unimate is a fantastic addition to a healthy lifestyle, offering mood-boosting benefits backed by scientific research. Whether you're looking to elevate your mood, increase your focus, or simply feel better overall, Unimate has got you covered.

Do I have to also take the Unimate, as part of the Feel Great System, for control of my cholesterol and diabetes?

While you can take Unicity Balance alone to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels, combining it with Unimate yields even better results, according to clinical studies. Unimate, an ultra-concentrated proprietary yerba mate extract, offers additional benefits that Balance alone can't provide.

One study, the Zurich Clinical Trial, showed that taking Unimate once daily for 30 days led to a 12% reduction in total cholesterol, a 5% reduction in LDL cholesterol, and an 11% reduction in triglycerides. The same group also saw a 5% reduction in fasting blood glucose and a 3% reduction in HbA1c levels.

Other research has confirmed Unimate's ability to support healthy weight loss. This is attributed to yerba mate's triterpenoid saponins, which positively affect the expression of anti-obesity-related genes.

While Balance alone can help control cholesterol and blood sugar, combining it with Unimate as part of the Feel Great System offers a more comprehensive approach to health and wellness.

I don’t like the taste of Unimate. What else I can I do?

While Unicity works really hard to bring us science-based products that are pleasing to the pallet, we know it does not always work for everyone.

Unimate is available in a variety of flavors like lemon, lemon-ginger, citrus mint, and salted caramelYou could try adding more water (or less powder) to dilute your drink. I personally found that adding a packet of the Unicity Matcha offers a great mix from a taste standpoint and the added kick with the energy. Try mixing it up and trying different ways. If you find one, let me know so I can share it with others.

Unimate gives me the jitters. Any suggestions?

Unimate is generally well-tolerated, but it does contain moderate amounts of caffeine. If you're sensitive to caffeine, exercise caution when using this product. For context, Unimate has about the same caffeine content as a cup of premium coffee.

Most users report increased energy levels as one of Unimate's primary benefits. However, if you're experiencing jitters, the cause might be consuming it on an empty stomach.

To mitigate this, try eating high-protein, low-carb foods like hard-boiled eggs right after drinking Unimate. This can help stabilize your stomach without affecting your blood sugar levels. Alternatively, you can dilute your Unimate by adding more water or using less powder. If you're sensitive to caffeine, consider adjusting how you consume Unimate to avoid the jitters while still enjoying its benefits.

How do you recommend using the Unimate, when used with The Feel Great System?

For optimal results, mix one packet of Unimate with 17-24 ounces of water. You can enjoy it hot or cold, based on your preference. For the best outcome, consume Unimate first thing in the morning. Wait until you start feeling hungry, and then take a Balance right before your first meal. For more detailed information and instructions, check out The Feel Great System Instructions & Benefits.

I read online that Yerba Mate can cause cancer. Is this true?

The relationship between Yerba Mate and cancer has been a subject of ongoing research and debate. While some studies indicate that consuming large amounts of Yerba Mate for extended periods may elevate the risk of specific cancers like mouth, throat, and lung cancer, it's crucial to understand that the scientific evidence is not definitive.

One theory suggests that the cancer risk may be due to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are known carcinogens. These compounds are formed when Yerba Mate leaves are dried using wood smoke. Cheaper brands may contain higher levels of PAHs, thus increasing cancer risks.

High-quality brands like Unimate use a specialized purification and extraction process to remove PAHs, making it a safer choice.

It's also worth noting that Yerba Mate isn't the only source of PAHs. Tobacco smoke and grilled meats also contain these compounds, and exposure to them can also elevate cancer risks.

Is Unimate safe to take as a professional sports supplement?

Absolutely, Unimate is a safe and reliable choice for professional athletes. It has earned the Certified for Sport® certification from NSF International, a reputable third-party organization that rigorously tests and certifies sports supplements.

This certification guarantees that Unimate is free from banned substances and adheres to stringent label accuracy standards. It also confirms that the product is manufactured in a facility that follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). This is crucial for athletes who are subject to strict anti-doping rules.

High-caliber athletes like Olympic Gold Medalist Short Track Speed Skater, Hyojun Lim, vouch for Unimate. He says, "I drink a cup of Unimate when I wake up. It boosts my energy, and I trust it because it's certified for banned substances."

Both Unimate yerba mate and Balance Fiber Matrix, part of the Feel Great System, are NSF Certified for Sport®. Their listings are available on the NSF Certified for Sport® website, a resource that helps athletes and coaches make informed decisions about supplements.

The Feel Great System even helped MLB Slugger Vladdy from the Toronto Blue Jays shed 42 pounds.

How is Unimate different from Unicity Matcha?

Why is this product not for use by pregnant or nursing women? Can kids use Unimate?

While many pregnant and nursing women, as well as children, have used Unimate yerba mate without issue, Unicity does not specifically test its products on these groups. Due to the lack of testing on children, pregnant, or nursing women, Unicity cannot officially recommend Unimate for these demographics.

What are chlorogenic acids?

Chlorogenic acids are a family of antioxidant compounds naturally found in various foods, including yerba mate. They're especially abundant in Unimate yerba mate, which boasts up to 375 times more chlorogenic acids than other yerba mate drinks.

These compounds offer a range of health perks. They support healthy brain function, elevate mood, and boost energy levels. Research also suggests they can aid in weight management by reducing glucose absorption in the intestines and promoting healthy glucose metabolism.

Chlorogenic acids serve as potent antioxidants, helping to shield your body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. This kind of damage can lead to chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Unimate is an ultra-concentrated proprietary yerba mate extract that contains up to 10 times the chlorogenic acid content found in a cup of coffee. Unlike other energy drinks, Unimate doesn't cause energy crashes, sugar spikes, or headaches.

Unicity asserts that Unimate has "up to 375 times more chlorogenic acids" than other yerba mate drinks, making it a concentrated source of these health benefits:

  • Supports Healthy Blood Pressure: Research indicates that chlorogenic acid can help maintain healthy blood pressure levels.

  • Boosts Cognitive Function: It enhances focus and memory, supporting overall brain health.

  • Enhances Mood: Beyond boosting mental stamina, chlorogenic acid can positively influence mood and well-being.

  • Regulates Blood Sugar: It can help maintain healthy blood glucose levels, which also aids in weight management.

  • Aids in Weight Loss: By affecting glucose and fat metabolism, chlorogenic acids can contribute to healthy weight loss over time.

What is Theobromine?

Theobromine is a naturally occurring alkaloid found in various plant species, including yerba mate. Often considered a "cousin" to caffeine, theobromine shares a similar chemical structure but offers distinct effects on the body. Like caffeine, theobromine serves as a stimulant that can boost energy and focus. However, it's less potent than caffeine and has a longer half-life, meaning it remains in your system for an extended period.

In yerba mate, theobromine exists alongside other compounds like caffeine and theophylline. These elements work together to offer a unique set of benefits for both body and mind. Theobromine has been shown to improve blood flow and lower blood pressure through vasodilation. It also acts as a diuretic, helping to flush toxins and reduce water retention.

Research indicates that theobromine has anti-anxiety effects and can alleviate symptoms of depression. Its mild stimulant impact on the central nervous system enhances focus and cognitive function. Combined with other compounds in yerba mate, theobromine offers a balanced source of energy and mental clarity, minus the jitters or crashes often linked to caffeine.

back to top

What are Mate saponins?

Mate saponins are chemical compounds found in yerba mate, a traditional South American drink made from the leaves of the Ilex paraguariensis plant. As a type of glycoside, saponins consist of a sugar molecule bonded to a non-sugar molecule and are recognized for their soap-like qualities.

These compounds offer a range of health advantages, including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. They've also been shown to lower cholesterol levels and enhance the body's immune response. Beyond their health perks, mate saponins also influence the taste and aroma of yerba mate. They're responsible for the beverage's characteristic bitter taste, as well as its earthy and smoky flavors.

It's important to note that yerba mate contains other bioactive compounds like caffeine, theobromine, and chlorogenic acids. These elements are believed to contribute to the drink's extensive health benefits. Nonetheless, mate saponins remain a crucial component, offering their own unique properties and health advantages.
