The answer is yes and no. Yerba mate extract does have many health benefits, such as containing
vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It also contains caffeine as much as coffee does in many
cases. This makes it an ideal choice for people who are looking for an energy boost but don’t
want to drink coffee.
However, if you are looking for the more intense energy boost that higher caffeine levels bring,
then coffee may be the better choice for you. With a cup of yerba mate containing about as much
caffeine as a shot of espresso, its a lot easier to brew coffee with higher caffeine levels.
