While traveling in Bolivia I took coca tea and chewed the leaves. I can assure Web MD that coca is safe and would remind them not to equate coca with cocaine. It is confusing and leads to misinformation as they are two completely different substances differing in every way. The coca leaf is a natural leaf.

Do not expect any too overt from Mate de Coca. Its stimulatory effects are weaker than a quarter cup of coffee. However, there is a gradual boosting of the overall mood that seems beneficial and then some. There is no reason coca tea should be controlled or regulated, it not a rocket blast to orbit; more like a gentle bicycle ride.

This article is full of misinformation. Coca does not contain anywhere near enough cocaine to cause cocaine-induced toxicity. It is rich in nutrients and has proven benefits for altitude sickness and other conditions. It's far milder than espresso or yerba mate and more on par with green tea in terms of stimulant effects.

Comment:
I had Coca tea while suffering from Altitude sickness in Bolivia. This review is misleading and false. Coca tea made me feel healthy and took away my nausea.
