Listen to this fun Green Divas Radio Show Foodie-Phile segment featuring Charles Chen of Raw Youth talking about the benefits of switching from caffeine to Yerba Mate.
Most people wake up every single day and go straight for the cup of coffee!
Coffee can be healthy in moderation, but in large amounts can be very dehydrating and acidic to our bodies. Not to mention many people have more than one cup a day with added sugar and cream. No worries! There are coffee alternatives that never compromise in taste, and don’t give you the crash!

Yerba Mate comes from South American filled with polyphenols, vitamins and minerals. Buy organic! You can even buy them in loose leave form.
