Unimate vs other Yerba Mate Drinks | The Feel Great SystemMar 06, 2022
Unimate is a high-quality proprietary Yerba Mate extract with natural ingredients to boost your mood and your endurance. Our Yerba Mate is grown, harvested, and traditionally fire-dried and roasted in South America. It then undergoes a specialized purification and extraction process, providing 10 times the amount of bioactive compounds vs. all other Yerba Mate.
Yerba mate (pronounced as yehr-bah mah-teh) is an herb native to South America. When it was first discovered by indigenous peoples of Paraguay and Southern Brazil, it was referred to as “the drink of the gods”. Spanish explorers later embraced the plant-based drink, claiming it was “most excellent for giving relief from fatigue and producing an exhilaration of spirit”.
Yerba mate has been used traditionally since ancient times for the nutrients it provides. These nutrients—including caffeine, theobromine, saponins, and polyphenols—give yerba mate a lot of antioxidant power, which is part of why it has been such a well-loved plant for centuries.
Yerba mate isn’t just some passing trend that we will have forgotten about in 10 years. It has endured for centuries in part because people feel better when they drink it.
What Sets Unimate Yerba Mate Apart from other Yerba Mate Drinks
Not all yerba mate drinks are created equal. Unimate stands out among the rest in the following ways:
- It contains no added sugar and only natural caffeine. The yerba mate soft drinks and juice infusions you see at the retail store are usually loaded with sugar and synthetic caffeine, which can do more harm than good.
- Cheaper brands offer little health benefits. People who recommend yerba mate say that it can relieve fatigue, aid in weight loss, ease depression, and help treat headaches and various other conditions. There's limited evidence that support most yerba mate products may help with some of these conditions. Unimate has been extensively researched and is backed by clinical studies.
- Some yerba mate drinks may not be safe. Some studies indicate that people who drink large amounts of yerba mate over long periods may be at increased risk of some types of cancer, such as cancer of the mouth, throat and lungs. One possible explanation is that some cheaper brands of yerba mate may contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are known to cause cancer. Tobacco smoke and grilled meat also contain PAHs. To learn more, click here to read the article Can Yerba Mate Cause Cancer? A Look at How Unimate Is Processed.
- Unimate contains more chlorogenic acids. Unicity’s exclusive proprietary extraction and purification process ensures Unimate contains the maximum amount of yerba mate’s active ingredients, including chlorogenic acids, which can help boost mood, energy, and support healthy brain function. As a result, Unimate contains up to 375 times more chlorogenic acids than other yerba mate drinks.
- Unimate is easy to prepare and drink. No need to steep the leaves or carry around a special cup or straw. Unimate comes in single-serving packets, making it easy to pack for travel or to carry around for a quick drink on-the-go. All you have to do is mix it with hot or cold water, and you’re good to go!
- It tastes good! Unimate comes in a variety of flavors (lemon, lemon-ginger and citrus mint), making it a delicious drink you don’t have to acquire a taste for. There is also a salted caramel version called Unimate Fuel.
