Currently, the leaves and branches of this plant are dried and finely grounded and are popularly consumed as an infusion in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.
The leaves of the plant contain caffeine, and small amounts of theophylline and theobromine; stimulants that are also found in coffee and cocoa. In addition, Yerba Mate contains vitamins A, B1, B2 and C, plus an addition of minerals such as phosphorus, iron and potassium.
