BackgroundIngesting Yerba Maté (YM) has become widely popular for health promotion, obesity prevention and body weight reduction, primarily due its thermogenic effectiveness. However, the YM effects on fat metabolism during exercise, when fat metabolism is already increased several fold, are unknown. The present study investigated whether acute YM ingestion augments fat metabolism parameters of fatty acid oxidation (FAO) and energy expenditure derived from FAO (EEFAO) during exercise with… 
Yerba Mat é ( Ilex paraguariensis ) Metabolic , Satiety , and Mood State Effects at Rest and during Prolonged Exercise
Yerba Maté (YM), has become a popular herb ingested for enhancing metabolic health and weight-loss outcomes. No studies have tested the combined metabolic, satiety, and psychomotor effects of YM
Yerba Maté (Ilex paraguariensis) Metabolic, Satiety, and Mood State Effects at Rest and during Prolonged Exercise
Combining YM intake with prolonged exercise at targeted ”fat-loss”’ intensities augments FAO and improves measures of satiety and mood state and may provide an important role for designing future fat and weight-loss lifestyle interventions.
Metabolic and Performance Effects of Yerba Mate on Well-trained Cyclists
YM increased fat utilization during submaximal exercise and improved TT performance, but performance-enhancement effect was unrelated to measures of substrate metabolism during maximal exercise.
Ilex paraguariensisA. St.-Hil. (Yerba Mate) Differently Regulates the Lipid Mobilization and, Irisin and Lactate Levels in Sedentary and Chronic Swimming Mice
Healthy mice were submitted or not to daily chronic swimming and/or daily yerba mate (YM) infusion intake and had their bloods analyzed after four weeks. We hypothesized that daily intake of YM may
Effects of mate tea consumption on muscle strength and oxidative stress markers after eccentric exercise.
Mate tea consumption did not influence muscle strength at all time points assessed but hastened the strength recovery over 24 h after exercise, and MT also favoured the concentration of blood antioxidant compounds.
Acute effectiveness of a “fat-loss” product on substrate utilization, perception of hunger, mood state and rate of perceived exertion at rest and during exercise
The multi-ingredient product’s potential enhancement of FAO during exercise, satiety, and RPE reduction suggests an acute effectiveness of SHRED in improving the exercise-related fat loss benefits.
Acute Citrulline-Malate Supplementation and High-Intensity Cycling Performance
It is demonstrated that acute supplementation of 12 g CM does not provide acute ergogenic benefits using the protocol implemented in this study in well-trained males.
The effect levels with the mechanisms supporting weight loss on the biochemical parameters of the active substances in the herbal forms sold and consumed as diet tea, were evaluated.


Antiobesity Effects of yerba maté Extract (Ilex paraguariensis) in High‐fat Diet–induced Obese Mice
The data show that yerba maté extract has potent antiobesity activity in vivo, and it is observed that the treatment had a modulatory effect on the expression of several genes related to obesity.
Green tea extract ingestion, fat oxidation, and glucose tolerance in healthy humans.
Acute GTE ingestion can increase fat oxidation during moderate-intensity exercise and can improve insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance in healthy young men.
Balance of substrate oxidation during submaximal exercise in lean and obese people.
Sedentary overweight subjects exhibited an alteration of the balance of substrate oxidation, reflected by lower rates of fat oxidation and a shift of quantitative parameters to lower intensities, and the test appeared to be reliable and could be of interest to advise an individualized exercise prescription in obese people.
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.
Mate tea (Ilex paraguariensis) promotes satiety and body weight lowering in mice: involvement of glucagon-like peptide-1.
Findings suggest that mate may induce anorexic effects by direct induction of satiety and by stimulation of GLP-1 secretion and modulation of serum leptin levels.
Yerba Mate Tea (Ilex paraguariensis): a comprehensive review on chemistry, health implications, and technological considerations.
This review presents the usage, chemistry, biological activities, health effects, and some technological considerations for processing of Yerba Mate tea and assesses in a concise and comprehensive way the potential of Ilex paraguariensis as a source of biological compounds for the nutraceutical industry.
The effects of increasing exercise intensity on muscle fuel utilisation in humans
It is concluded that the most likely mechanism for the reduction in fat oxidation during high‐intensity exercise is a downregulation of carnitine palmitoyltransferase I, either by this marked decline in free carnitines availability or by a decrease in intracellular pH.
Effects of ingestion of a commercially available thermogenic dietary supplement on resting energy expenditure, mood state and cardiovascular measures
The results of this investigation support that the proprietary blend of this thermogenic aid is capable of increasing REE for four hours post-ingestion while supporting increased focus, alertness, and energy as well as decreasing fatigue without promoting anxiety or causing significant changes in HR, BP, or ECG measurements in habitual caffeine consumers.
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.
