Matcha is magnificent. It packs an abundance of anti-oxidants (Catechins), amino acids (L’Theanine) and Vitamins. When you drink Matcha, you ingest the goodness of the entire tea leaves. Matcha has up to 137 times the anti-oxidant strength of a cup of brewed green tea. You can drink Matcha as a shot, a latte, or add it to your favourite freshly made juice or smoothie. Here are some ways you may benefit from drinking Matcha regularly.
Boost your anti-oxidants. One cup of Matcha provides 10x the anti-oxidants of a cup of brewed green tea. Anti-oxidants help prevent diseases and keep your body working at its peak potential.
Improved Focus & Calm
A cup of Matcha contains about 1/3 of the caffeine of a cup of coffee and also contains the amino acid, L’Theanine. Matcha may improve alertness without causing the “jittery” effects associated with having too much coffee. L’ Theanine calms the mind and body. Together caffeine and L ’Theanine work synergistically to give a calm alertness.
Matcha makes a great addition to any weight loss program. The group of antioxidants called Catechins in Matcha has been shown to increase metabolism and burn fat faster. As a bonus, Matcha is virtually calorie free, with only 3 calories per cup. The chlorophyll in Matcha is alkaline, which makes it a good detoxifier and improves the alkalinity of the blood when combined with a healthy diet.
