Christmas is coming and you don't know what to ask for as a gift? It's definitely the best time to change your habits and try something new, different, good for your body and good for the environment.
Have you ever heard of yerba mate?
It is an infusion from the Amazon that has the reputation of being a healthy, energizing and long-lasting drink. But above all, it is a drink that makes you come alive!
Why is mate good for your health?
Argentina's national drink is an ideal ally for the immune system. The leaves of the mate tree contain a high concentration of antioxidants. More than 90% more than in green tea. The polyphenols protect and slow down the ageing of our body cells.
In addition, yerba mate contains 8 vitamins that belong to the B group. They are essential for the body's functions such as the production of energy and red blood cells.
Mate is rich in minerals. It contains potassium, a mineral that is necessary for a healthy heart, and magnesium, which helps the body to incorporate proteins.
In addition to strengthening the immune system, yerba mate contains theobromine, which is also present in cocoa. This molecule adds a euphoric effect to the drink, perfect for brightening up days with positive vibrations.
A natural product that reduces the use of single-use items!
The calabash (container for drinking the infusion) is a natural fruit that reduces the use of single-use objects as it is traditional to reuse the calabash each time you prepare a mate. The life span of a calabash can easily exceed 10 years (if well cared for).
Kayari calabash are handmade in the workshops of Uruguayan and Argentinean craftsmen. Each calabash is unique and made with the greatest care.
Christmas will be different and why not ask for an original gift. Experience the traditions of the Guarani Indians in your home and benefit from the strength of the Amazon ancestors to keep your immune system strong. The important thing is to feel alive.
1kg of yerba mate = 2m² of preserved jungle
Each kilogram of Kayari yerba mate helps to preserve 2m² of forest. Indeed, Kayari and NGO Banco de Bosque are collaborating on the Curvas del Urugua-i project in Misiones, the province where yerba mate is grown. The project consists of saving 104 hectares of forest in Misiones in order to increase the area of the Urugua-i provincial park.
Banco de Bosques is a foundation dedicated to the protection of Argentina's native forests, with the aim of conserving, restoring and, where necessary, subjecting them to appropriate forest management in accordance with the principles and criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council.
