Glass and ceramic mates have become popular in recent time because they can help if you suffer from acid indigestion. The natural gourds can mix with yerba mate to give an acidic effect, so by using a glass/ceramic mate you will avoid this.Glass mates are also very convenient because they require no pre-treatment or curing. They are easy to care for between uses by simply rinsing unlike a natural gourd which requires more meticulous care.
