At some point we all believed that with our thermos of yerba mate a day. Or in many cases more than one, we would already be fulfilling our daily water ration.
Although it’s what many of us think, sadly this is not the case.
Mate does not hydrate. And one would wonder “why?” …
Why does a thermos or two of how water poured over yerba mate not hydrate? 🤔
This is the equivalent to almost the daily minimum required liquid by all doctors to have good health.
If you are familiar with Yerba Mate, you know that it is the ideal partner for work, studies, between friends, strangers, and many more. In addition to the various benefits it contains, it is still infused water at the end of the day right?
But the issue is: Is drinking mate the same as drinking pure water?
As everyone knows ...
Pure water is the main source of hydration and is 100% essential for the existence of the human being. Along with almost everything on planet Earth. For this reason, it is recommended that every adult drink between 2 and 3 liters of water a day.
But at the end of the day, yerba mate doesn’t replace those liters of water that we have to drink daily. Because even though yerba mate is full of benefits & considered a superfood … it also has diuretic effects. Which favors the elimination of fluids through urine.
To have a healthy diet we need water because it intervenes in respiration, perspiration, fertilization, circulation, excretion, among others. It helps regulate body temperature, is responsible for transporting oxygen to cells and allows better digestion.
Don't forget the quality 💧
It is also important to take into account the quality of the water that is consumed must always be clear and odorless. These characteristics of the water are essential for it to be consumed, as well as ensuring that it has been properly treated. This will avoid transmitting any type of disease, both to people and animals.
The ideal way to maintain a balance and incorporate healthy habits is to drink mate as an infusion & companion and not forget the importance of always carrying a bottle of water with you to meet the basic minimum requirements and feel in harmony.
