Yerba maté, used since ancient times as a tea, is renowned throughout South America for its rejuvenating, nutritional, and energizing effects, particularly for mental and physical fatigue. Yerba Maté can be taken as an effective weight-loss aid, when used in conjunction with the Maximum Metabolism Weight Loss Plan. Scientific research shows Maté to be a powerful antioxidant and that it can protect DNA from double-strand breaks. It also has the ability to inhibit LDL oxidation. Maté naturally contains a wide range of polyphenols, methylxanthines, and chlorogenic acid, which together are responsible for its many health benefits.
1 to 2 tablets before a meal. Do not exceed four tablets daily. Two tablets are approximately equal to 1 to 2 cups of maté tea.

I am more interested in the methylxanthine coctail and Mao-B inhibiting chemicals in Yerba Mate, then it's potential as an antioxidant. This preparation, having 48mg of caffeine per pill, is pleasantly stimulating. Pay attention to how you respond to various dosage levels over time. Less caffeine with this preparation than with a pure caffeine pill is required to cause agitation and dysphoric panic. The same thing can happen to people who take more Mao-B inhibiting medication than they ought to, like l-deprenyl. Another possibility is that there is a clinically significant amount of theophylline in this preparation synergizing with the other ingredients.
I stopped using this product after realizing how much caffiene it contains because I have to reduce and eliminate my caffiene intake. It comes highly recommended in the weight loss regimen for those who can stand to have caffiene in their diet. Its has alot of hidden benefits like appetite suppressant, cleanses the blood, stimulates the mind and fights aging, fights free radicals and more, so research it more to see if it fits what you need because if it had no caffiene I would surely be taking it.

I take almost every day a tablet before lunch to feel more awake in the afternoon.
Good for mornings

I take almost every morning one tablet and after half hour to hour I feel more awake.
Good - not 100% sure of the benefit

Not sure what benefit I am supposed to see. My weight is still about the same...no significant changes in anything that I've noticed
I used this as Caffein substance.

It works. Better than infuse dried leaves. (It contracts your tongue.)
