I think some people believe it to be an appetitate supressent. Whether it is or not, I'm not sure.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

for the money because in capsule ammounts it won't do anything at all for anyone.

No, some websites have claimed it surpress appetite although it's probably more of a marketing trick then anything else.

yerba mate itself is quite nutritive itself but is not really an apetite supressant, i'm sorry but that site must be wrong.
try it yourself if you doubt me.

From Erowid:
Quote:

This traditional Argentine beverage comes from the leaves of
a bushy South American tree. The thick, shiny leaves are very rich in
caffeine (to 2%) and vitamins. They have several volatile oils
present which give the tea part of its distinctive aroma and taste.




Specifically:
http://www.erowid.org/plants/yerba_mate/yerba_mate_info1.shtml

Quote:

Erowid receives semi-regular notes from well intentioned visitors telling us that Yerba Mate does not contain caffeine, but instead contains mateine. After looking into the issue several times in the past, it has become necessary to write a brief description of why we believe that caffeine is the major psychoactive chemical in Yerba Mate and mateine is simply another name for caffeine.

One of the most surprising parts of the research into the topic is that it appears that several articles available online are completely bogus, having been either faked by a vendor to improve sales or a Yerbe Mate fan in order to explain why they liked Yerba Mate tea and not other types of caffeinated tea.

One of the errors in the literature talking about "mateine" is the claim that it is a stereoisomer of caffeine. This stands out because, as any organic chemist can easily tell you, there is no stereoisomer of caffeine. The caffeine molecule lacks a stereocenter and thus there are no rotational isomers at all. This error, repeated widely, shows the people writing the texts know little about chemistry and the rest of their information about this theoretical chemical must be considered suspect.

I agree with you, I was saying that some websites claim that it supresses appetite, which might be why it appears in diet pills, because it's being marketed as an appetite supressent. I really don't think it is, from my experience.
