Notes for this study:
Three groups of dyslipidemic women were made; yerba mate, yerba mate plus diet, and just diet.

The mate tea group (not diet changes, just 1 liter of yerba mate tea daily) experienced a decrease in LDL cholesterol (160mg/dL to 150mg/dL after 90 days) while increasing anti-oxidant potential of the body.

HDL and triglycerides were unaffected.
