The caffeine level of mate is much lower than coffee, but still gives the body an energy boost. Whereas coffee is stripped of nutritional value as the beans are processed, dried and ground, mate contains an abundance of nutrients, including potassium, magnesium and manganese. Many regular users claim that it will not affect the ability to sleep when consumed at night, which is probably due in large part to its lower caffeine levels and higher nutritional benefits. Caffeine levels in mate vary from 0.2% to 2.0% of dry weight, with coffee often measuring 3.2% of dry weight. The natural substances present in mate have been shown to have a relaxing effect on smooth muscle tissue, and a stimulating effect on myocardial (heart) tissue, while coffee stimulates the central nervous system.
