Ilex paraguariensis dried and minced leaves are made into a brewed tea by large populations in South America, having evolved from a tea drunk by the Guarani ethnic group to a beverage that has a social and almost ritualistic role in some South American modern societies. It is used both as a source of caffeine, but also as a therapeutic agent for its alleged pharmacological properties. In the past couple of decades, there was a several-fold increase in the literature studying Ilex paraguariensis properties showing effects such as antioxidant properties in chemical models and ex vivo lipoprotein studies, vaso-dilating, antimutagenic effects, and controversial association with oropharyngeal cancer, anti-glycation effects and weight reduction properties. The aim of this review is to provide a concise summary of the research published in the past several years, with an emphasis on inflammation and lipid metabolism. J Ethnopharmacol. 2010.
