Yerba Mate should be part of your pre-workout

Yerba mate a shrub found in the rain forests of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay is a great energizer. It has antioxidants, B vitamins, chromium, and the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium.
It has three primary xanthine alkaloids (theobromine, theophylline, caffeine) which provides the energy driver. You will get approximately 85 mg of caffeine versus 100 mg in coffee.

I like to combine it with chia seeds.
