I'm not sure, but I think this is only available in Canada right now. I can't find much info on it other than what's on their corporate website and some junk about being banned by the UFC (which is probably good for a couple of points in their favor IMO since the UFC tends to shill for funky sugar water companies with neat logos). So what do y'all think, is this something that could possibly do what it claims (or at least be somewhat beneficial toward weight loss/maintenance), or is it just more snake oil? Here's their ingredients list. More details in the link.

Many thanks.

Cool. Thanks. Well, at the very least it's not poison. If it doesn't taste like ass it might be an optional cool beverage to grab on the go on those days were I just can't face another bottled water. Cheers!

Mostly snake oil. . . . I mean, yerba mate and the EGCG in green tea are moderate "fat burners" in that yerba mate contains three separate stimulants (caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine) and the EGCG supposedly promotes apoptosis in mature fat cells and gives a bump to metabolism, but I don't think it'll provide much of an advantage over my morning coffee.
