What is Yerba Maté ? ?

  title={What is Yerba Mat{\'e} ? ?},
Yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis St. Hil.) extract inhibits hand-rolled cornhusk cigarette smoke-induced oxidative pulmonary damage.
Investigation of the effects of yerba mate extract (YME) on oxidative stress parameters and pathological changes in the lungs of mice chronically exposed to hand-rolled cornhusk cigarette (HRC) smoke showed that HRC contains elevated levels of tin and carbon oxide, but less arsenic, cobalt, manganese, and selenium than commercial cigarettes.

In vitro gastrointestinal digestion of microencapsulated extracts of Flourensia cernua, F. microphylla, and F. retinophylla
Abstract Recently, some species of the genus Flourensia have been identified by their potential health effects (e.g. anti-inflammatory and apoptotic). Encapsulation of plant extracts is a processExpand

The effect of mate tea (Ilex paraguariensis) on metabolic and inflammatory parameters in high-fat diet-fed Wistar rats
The consumption of mate tea had no consistent effect in the inflammatory response of peritoneal macrophages, but reduced cardiometabolic risk markers. Expand
Anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects of Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis) in C57BL/6J mice fed a high-fat diet
Yerba Mate has the ability to decrease the differentiation of pre-adipocytes and to reduce the accumulation of lipids in adipocytes, both of which contribute to a lower growth rate of adipose tissue, lower body weight gain, and obesity. Expand
Reduction in oxidative stress levels in the colonic mucosa without fecal stream after the application of enemas containing aqueous Ilex paraguariensis extract.
The daily rectal application of enemas containing aqueous extract of Ilex paraguariensis decreases oxidative tissue damage in the colon without fecal stream regardless of the time of irrigation. Expand
Green tea drinking, high tea temperature and esophageal cancer in high‐ and low‐risk areas of Jiangsu Province, China: A population‐based case–control study
In conclusion, green tea drinking was not inversely associated with esophageal cancer in this study, however, drinking tea at high temperatures significantly increased esophagal cancer risk. Expand
Tea drinking habits and oesophageal cancer in a high risk area in northern Iran: population based case-control study
Drinking hot tea, a habit common in Golestan province, was strongly associated with a higher risk of oesophageal cancer, and a strong agreement was found between responses to the questions on temperature at which tea was drunk and interval from tea being poured to being drunk. Expand
Acute ingestion of yerba mate infusion (Ilex paraguariensis) inhibits plasma and lipoprotein oxidation
Abstract Yerba mate extract (Ilex paraguariensis) is a source of phenolic compounds that possesses in vitro antioxidant activities and may contribute to a reduction in the risk of cardiovascularExpand
Effect of Ilex extracts and isolated compounds on peroxidase secretion of rat submandibulary glands.
Caffeine and chlorogenic acid were proved to play an important role in the induction of peroxidase secretion induced by the extracts, while polyphenolic derivatives and flavonoids in the aqueous extract have been determined by HPLC analysis. Expand
Effect of acute administration of hydroalcohol extract of Ilex paraguariensis St Hilaire (Aquifoliaceae) in animal models of Parkinson's disease
The results obtained suggest that the hydroalcohol extract of Ilex paraguariensis may have an antiparkinsonian profile in animal models, probably through its antioxidant activity and antagonist action on adenosine A2A receptors. Expand
Aqueous extract of Ilex paraguariensis attenuates the progression of atherosclerosis in cholesterol‐fed rabbits
The results showed that Ilex paraguariensis extract can inhibit the progression of atherosclerosis in cholesterol‐fed rabbits, although it did not decrease the serum cholesterol or aortic TBARS and antioxidant enzymes. Expand
Effect of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis) tea on topoisomerase inhibition and oral carcinoma cell proliferation.
MT is found to be a rich source of phenolic compounds and can also inhibit oral cancer proliferation and the effect on cancer cell proliferation may be mediated via inhibition of topoisomerase II. Expand
