Energy-Boosting Yerba Mate is a Wisdom of the Ancients First in America
Wisdom of the Ancients makes high quality herbal beverages that support wholesome, healthy lifestyles. Not based on just any herbal and botanical ingredients, these teas use time-tested ingredients that have been known to indigenous peoples for hundreds or thousands of years. Many use yerba mate, an energizing herbal tea that offers 450 nutrients plus potent antioxidants that help to promote clarity, focus, and energy. Wisdom of the Ancients has also recently added wildcrafted Pau D’Arco teas to their range. Helping against yeast infections, this herb also helps with detoxing.
Wholesome Organic Ingredients make Wisdom’s Herbal Teas Even Better
Creating health-boosting teas from rainforest herbs, Wisdom of the Ancients makes formulas that are USDA certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. Their products are also certified kosher by Natural Food Certifiers. Suitable for drinking either iced or hot, these teas are sweetened with organic Stevia, in order to make them healthier for the teeth as well as low-calorie. They also make “bombilla” strainer straws out of brass, plated with stainless steel, for those who want to enjoy their yerba mate the traditional way.
Wisdom of the Ancients, James May, and the Wise Old Man
James May, Sr. started Wisdom of the Ancients decades ago as part of his quest for wellness-enhancing herbs worldwide. In Paraguay, he found out about yerba mate and other herbal blends from the Guarani tribe. Though the Guarani ascribed this knowledge to a figure named the Wise Old Man, James never met this individual, who is likely legendary. The energizing, invigorating effects of the herbs were no legend, however, and James brought them back with him to the USA. In 1982, he founded Wisdom of the Ancients – and for the first time, Americans could enjoy yerba mate, Stevia, and other healthful rainforest herbs unknown in the country until then.
