How Yerba Mate (Ilex Paraguariensis) Works in Mountain Ice Pain Relief Gel

Reduced Inflammation

Ilex paraguariensis contains a high content of saponins, plant extracts that have exhibited anti-inflammatory properties in numerous studies. They've been shown to suppress pro-inflammatory cytokines, proteins important in signaling the immune response. Excessive activity by these proteins is what creates harmful levels of inflammation, and the saponins in ilex paraguariensis inhibit the expression of major inflammatory agents like interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), as well as the translocation of nuclear factor‑κB (NF-κB). And as ilex paraguariensis is both water- and fat-soluble, it penetrates deep into the muscles and joints for effective anti-inflammatory activity.

Increased Circulation

The high antioxidant content of ilex paraguariensis, as well as its caffeine content, can help boost your blood circulation, which will allow your body to deliver more oxygen and nutrients through the bloodstream. These nutrients are vital to repairing cell damage and preventing further harm, which helps to reduce inflammation. Effective circulation also makes it easier for the organs in your body to function properly, while strain from impaired functioning creates more inflammation.

Reduced Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress, the imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, can cause cellular damage resulting in inflammation, sometimes even as a chronic condition. Antioxidants can stop this damage. As a powerful antioxidant, Ilex paraguariensis scavenges free radicals, reacting with them to stabilize them. In fact, its antioxidant content is even higher than that of green tea!

Antifungal Properties

Athlete's foot and other irritating, painful fungal infections have a surprising impact on older adults, largely because they're less able to attend to their foot hygiene, and this also impacts those with mobility issues. Ilex paraguariensis has been found to have strong antifungal properties, which can help prevent the spread of these infections.
