HOW CAN MATCHA BENEFIT YOU?
I want to lose weight
Matcha green tea is unrivalled if you're trying to lose a few pounds (or if you love metric, kg). Matcha aids weight loss by boosting your body's thermogenesis, which is the body's rate of burning calories, from your natural rate of 8-10% to an impressive 35-40%. In addition to that Matcha also helps normalize your blood sugar levels, which significantly helps your body burn even more fat. Best of all this is proven by science, not a marketing team!
i want younger looking skin
Consuming Matcha can help you achieve and maintain healthy glowing skin. The secret is Matcha's abundance of Catechins, which trap and nullify free radicals in the skin, helping prevent the signs of ageing. Matcha can also be used effectively externally as a beauty face mask ingredient, it's a great anti-inflammatory agent, effectively battling acne and other skin conditions.
i need more energy
i want to focus
The caffeine in Matcha is a different type known as theophylline, only found in tea. Caffeine in coffee can be absorbed within 30 minutes where-as Matcha theophylline releases energy for 3 to 6 hours (some studies have found it to be 8-10 hours), keeping you focused and alert through-out the day.
The combination of L-theanine, a mood boosting amino acid, and caffeine in Matcha green tea powder gives you a natural boost of clean energy and alertness that lasts for hours. The L-theanine helps balance the caffeine allowing the brain to focus without the jitteriness associated with caffeine. Zen Buddhist monks used Matcha to assist with meditation to achieve a zen state of mind.
i want to feel less anxious & stressed
i want to boost my exercise performance
Matcha contains the amino acid L-theanine. L-theanine has been proven to help with both psychological and physiological stress reduction in a number of medical studies. Matcha is one of the most abundant sources of L-theanine. The reason L-theanine is so powerful at combating stress is that it can access the central nervous system which controls the stress hormones. It blocks certain receptors, reducing the body’s response to stress. .
Matcha has been proven to boost exercise endurance by up to 25% when drunk before exercise. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in May 2017 has shown that 8 weeks of matcha diet supplementation increases post exercise systemic fat oxidation and exercise-induced muscle protein content in response to an acute bout of endurance exercise in comparison to placebo. Providing evidence of an increase in exercise induced fat burning and the uprooted essential to muscle building.
i want to increase my nutritional intake
Scientists came up with a measurement called ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) which measures the overall antioxidizing properties of any food. For example blueberries are highly regarded as antioxidant super food with a rating of 105, and Matcha green tea has over 17 times the power of blueberries with 1297 ORAC score per gram. Matcha is packed with high levels of Vitamin C, Selenium, Magnesium, Fibre, L-theanine, and Chromium (just to name a few).
i need to improve my overall health
Epigallocatechin (EGCG) is a type of catechin and a very healthy component with numerous benefits. It has chemopreventive properties (aiding the prevention of cancer). Cancer and heart disease rates have been found to be lower throughout Asian cultures that drink a lot of green tea, despite bad habits such as smoking being quite common. EGCG's also help the body fight infections, such as hepatitis B and C, influenza, herpes and a number of other bacterial, fungal and viral infections. Add this to the abundance of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, Matcha is a simple and cost effective way to consume more goodness.
