Stay young longer
We'll tell you what to drink in the morning for a longer life.
Yerba Mate Latte
You love morning rituals, you love treating yourself to a moment with a nice latte? What if we told you that you can also do something to stay young forever. Deliciousness and living longer all in one? We can offer that!
If one of your goals is to live a long, healthy life and thus stay young longer, you may already have a food or two at home that promotes that. Frozen blueberries for our Blueberry-Zirone Energy Balls), oatmeal for our delicious gluten-free crackers or beans.
If not, you’ll find the most important ones in our list of the 10 Anti-inflammatory Foods for a Younger Body. But what about when it comes to what to drink?
One could guess red wine, because it is rich in resveratol therefore a glass of red wine now and then does not hurt, which is also due to other factors. You can find out exactly what these are here in our article 5 good reasons to drink less alcohol, but also why you shouldn’t give it up.
But of course, there are better drinks that will keep you young longer and ensure a longer life. One of them is mate tea. Mate tea is an absolute super drink that contains powerful phenolic compounds that prevent cancer and strengthens our cardiovascular system. Mate is strongly antioxidant and has a cell-protective effect, which is particularly important in terms of a longer younger appearance.
Mate tea is special and is embedded in many cultures for a reason. It has more caffeine than coffee, but at the same time is gentler on the body and the effect lasts longer.
Mate tea – Better sleep and balanced melatonin production
Another wonderful effect is that mate tea makes you sleep better. It sounds contradictory at first, and you shouldn’t drink the tea right before bed, but it has a balancing effect on your sleep cycle, which in turn has a positive effect on your melatonin production. The better this is, the stronger your body is protected against zombie cells, because melatonin can turn zombie cells back into healthy cells. .
Besides that, there are certain beneficial intestinal bacteria that feed on foods rich in polyphenols, including mate tea. These are also the food of one of the most useful intestinal bacteria, Akkermansia muciniphila, it protects the intestinal mucosa and prevents it from leaky gut syndrome, which promotes chronic inflammation and disease. Low levels of this small bacterium have been linked to autoimmune diseases, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.
Mate tea is not, but not only good for your heart and intestines, but also for your brain. It was found that mate also has a mood-lifting effect and increases mental alertness. With all these benefits, it is clear why we have chosen mate tea as the best drink for a long life. For your body to reap the benefits, we recommend two cups a day.
To add that special something and integrate it into your morning ritual, we recommend our Yerba – Mate Collagen Latte .
