Lola I only meant in context of the caffeine content of the tea.  I really like the tea so I'm going to keep drinking it.  It is also one of the few teas that I like without anything in it (sugar or honey etc.) so I like that as well.

here s more on mate
http://www.dadamo.com/B2blogs/blogs/index.php/2004/11/07/type-o-and-yerba-mate?blog=27
and also in one of the protocols
http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/1.html
a cup of Mate tea would be good thing to drink if you happen to indulge in some high glycemic goodies.  polyphenol-rich Ilex paraguariensis (IP) extracts are capable of inhibiting advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) formation and to compare the potency of these extracts with green tea and
with the standard antiglycation agent aminoguanidine.

Maté is packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants: vitamins A, C and E, for instance, and many of the vitamins in the B complex. It is rich in minerals; iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulphur and silica among them.

Seems like some experts say it has mateine but not caffeine, others say it does have some caffeine.  
Yerba Mate: This Amazon herb contains theobromine, the mood-lifting xanthine also present in chocolate, helps to naturally enhance one's mood. Yerba mate is in extensive use in South American where it is used to enhance sustained energy, appetite control and mental clarity. Yerba Mate is also one of the best herbs at keeping tissue glycation at healthy levels.

Thanks Lola for all the info.  Did not know about adding some cold water first.  I will try that.  I also got a lemon mate blend at a tea place and it is quite delicious.  I'm definitely sticking with this tea now!

Oh c**p now I'm starting to get worried.  The last thing I want to do is make it worse.  You guys just might twist my arm on those crocs.  But I'd use them just indoors in my house - I have hardware floors that I'd like to keep as scratch free as possible since we renovated only a couple of years ago.  Okay so on the websites the crocs look like they only come in full sizes.  I'm an 8 1/2.  Do they run big or small, i.e. should I get a 9 or an 8?

Hi, sorry I didn't see this post sooner.  Things have been crazy at work.  And I don't mean regular old crazy, I mean time-to-get-the-h*ll-outta-Dodge crazy...but I digress.  As for the Crocs, yeah the thing about the classic Cayman style is that they do not come in half sizes.  They run about a true 8 (I'm an 8, so I know whereof I speak *lol*), maybe a little on the big size if anything, but not too much.  They are wide, though, which is wonderful in my case because my feet are wide, a C width to be exact, whereas a B is considered your standard, default width for women's shoes.  Crocs Caymans are unisex.  If you are an 8-1/2, I would suggest physically going to a shoe store and trying on the Crocs before buying, to see if an 8 or 9 is best for you.  I don't know why they don't come in half sizes.

Anyway, I cannot say enough about how dramatically and totally these have helped my plantar fasciitis.  I'm doing awesome now.  I went from excruciating pain for at least several years, to awesomeness.  I used to have to ice my feet after walking* or doing yard work, etc., but now I don't (although in the past few years I haven't really gone on any VERY long walks like I used to, so I'm not sure and probably my feet would hurt after a long hike, but I don't think anywhere near as much as they did in the past, pre-Croc...for longer walks I try to wear sneaks with the custom insoles the podiatrist did for me (well, the right one is custom, the left one is just there so that the feet are about the same height in the shoe).

Dude, go try on some Crocs, Cayman style.  I'm thinking the size 8 would do you but definitely try them on, you might need a niner.



* edited to add:  I never have to ice 'em (my feet) now, whereas I used to always be putting ice packs on them, not just after long walks or yard work, as they were basically the only thing to alleviate the excruciating pain.  It's a miracle.

I wish I could wear my crocs at work but they would be a bit hazardous on a construction site. My planter fascia came back for a couple of months but it seems to be fading now. Fortunately I found some work boots with a shock absorbing block in the heel.

Thanks PT for the info.  I think I know a place that sells them so I will try to check it out this weekend.  I'm so glad you said they come in wide.  I have wide feet as well and it is such a pain in the b**t to find comfortable shoes!

gulfcoastguy - may I ask what brand are the work boots you got?  My husband is a plumber and is always looking for comfortable boots for the job.  His feet are very flat and wide and I feel like he buys new shoes (work ones) every six months b/c they wear out or become uncomfortable.

Goro1, they are Timberlands but they are from the work boot section of Sports Academy(local store)not the regular shoe section. I just went and looked at them. They are the Timberland Pro series and don't have steel toes(in case that is a job requirement). They cost a bit more than $100 in summer of 07. I don't have flat feet though.
