Wellness Benefits of Yaupon
CatSpring Yaupon is not your average caffeinated drink. Check out some of the wellness benefits of this incredible indegenious caffeinated plant.
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.
