Matcha's unmatched health benefits
So what do we mean by 'healthy'? Well matcha delivers seven amazing benefits to mind and body:
1. Weight-reducing, metabolism-boosting, fat-burning power
A US study found that consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the rate a person burns calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy.
2. Amazing, immune-system empowering, antioxidant ability
Matcha green tea has more antioxidants than ten cups of ordinary green tea.
3. Colossal cancer-prevention capacity
Matcha's antioxidant power is based on catechins which hunt down and destroy the free radicals that trigger cancer-producing cells. The great news is that matcha drinkers consume 137 times more catechins than ordinary green tea drinkers.
4. Heart-empowering, cholesterol-lowering potential
A 2011 study showed that green tea had a significant effect in lowering the LDL or 'bad' cholesterol levels in research subjects.
5. Youth-promoting, inflammation-reducing, age-fighting beverage
Japan's longest-lived citizens regularly reach 100 plus and they're regular consumers of matcha.
6. Mind-improving, mental-health magnifying power
L-theanine is an amino acid that encourages alpha-wave activity in the brain. Alpha waves reduce stress and lower blood pressure so we feel less tense and can access higher- level brain functions like memory more easily.
7. Energy-boosting, stimulating, whole-system support
When we get low, slow and sluggish, matcha provides an energy surge similar to coffee or guarana but without the side effects they bring with them.
So let's run through it all again - matcha green tea powder helps you lose weight and while you're showing fat the exit, it also boosts your immune system, fights cancer, helps your heart stay healthy, promotes youth and heightens brain power.
