Yaupon has the same benefits as other caffeinated wellness drinks.

Did you know that there's a caffeinated plant native to North America? Previously viewed as a weed by farmers, yaupon holly is a widespread plant that can be dried and turned into a healthy and delicious tea. Yaupon is almost equal to yerba mate in caffeine and antioxidant content (a cup of brewed yerba mate contains about half the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee). Choosing yaupon tea over imported teas can give you the same benefits without the stress caused by the complexities of a lengthy and detached supply chain.


Yaupon is rich in polyphenols.

Like coffee and tea, yaupon is rich in polyphenols. According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, there is a strong case for polyphenols in the prevention of degenerative diseases, particularly cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Further, a 2011 study published in Filoterapia has demonstrated the specific polyphenols found in yaupon tea to have anti-inflammatory and chemopreventive effects.

Yaupon's Antioxidants are stable.

One study demonstrated that the antioxidant levels of yaupon tea are not affected by a change in packaging or storage. In comparison, some antioxidants found in green tea have the possibility of being diminished when packaged in a certain way.
