Are you an employer looking for new and inventive ways to keep your staff feeling great? If you are then you may want to try something slightly different to the usual wellbeing activities and promotions by providing a supply of gloriously green matcha powder for your staff to sample.
But why matcha green tea?
We have all had times in our working day when stress seems to take over. As an employer you will want to make sure that your staff are feeling less stressed and matcha can definitely help. It is used by the Zen Buddhist monks in Japan to help them to relax whilst still remaining alert. The L-Theanine contained in the leaves is to thank for this, giving your stress levels a downer, whilst your energy levels and alertness stay well and truly up.
Keeps your staff focused
That favourite L-Theanine comes into play again here. It causes the body to produce dopamine and serotonin. These two chemicals have an important to play in not only improving your mood, but also your memory and your concentration.
Give your team the power to go into battle
Matcha, like other green teas contains caffeine, however the increased stamina that matcha provides is thanks to the other nutrients which also are included. Not only this, but when compared to coffee and other caffeine packed drinks, matcha gives you some nice clean energy.
Perfect for when you have a big deadline and need your team on top form!
Strengthens the immune system
Staff sickness is one of the biggest headaches to employers around the world. So much so, that if there are things they can do to minimise the levels of sickness then many will.
If you are looking for a way to help keep your staff feeling in their best health then you might want to try matcha. Matcha is full of antioxidants that are known to help boost your immune system.
A healthy immune system = no more days of sick.
