yerba mate for fat loss
anyone know anything about this? its a tea, ive been drinking it for a few years, but i was looking on the internet for a beta-1 agonist and all my searches end up here. there is some proof it functions in weight loss, so i started drinking it again after i stopped clen , and my fat loss is continuing. just curious if anyone knows anything about it.

i think its the phenols and stuff in the tea. i drink lots of black and green tea but when i first started i noticed a little fat loss as well. i have a mag somewhere with info about the tea your drinking ill dig it up for ya.

The active fat burning chemical is in the xanthine family. Caffeine is a xanthine. I drink the stuff as an alternative to coffee. I think on ecoteas.com there is quite a bit of information about the stuff.

It's very common around here to drink tons of "erva mate" per day.....i never felt any fatburner property.....neither do my bros.

there are three main xanthines
all are lipolytic, black and green teas also have polyphenols that raise metabolic rate.

The only thing that is commonly noticed is a diuretic effect (if you drink it every day).
