Health Benefits of Matcha
We're all aware of the health benefits of standard green tea – it reduces stress, provides antioxidants, boosts metabolism, and even acts as a natural mood enhancer.
Now imagine all of these health benefits, amplified!
With Matcha you ingest the whole tea leaf, as opposed to the brewed water, which means it delivers everything that green tea delivers – but with a much higher potency.
In fact, researchers from The University of Colorado recently discovered that Matcha has a higher concentration of the antioxidant EGCG (a potent cancer-fighting and anti-aging catechin) of up to 137 times that found in standard, commercially-available green tea.
Pound-for-pound, Matcha contains more antioxidants than blueberries, gojiberries, pomegranates, orange juice, and spinach.
What's more, it can help to boost one's metabolic rate, thus enhancing your ability to burn fat and lose weight.
Other health benefits from drinking Matcha include:
- Helps to focus the mind by reducing mental and physical stress and improving cognition
- Anti-aging, cholesterol, and blood-pressure controlling catechins
- Natural mood enhancement
- Metabolism-boosting and weight management
- Rich in antioxidants and chlorophyll
- Zero glycemic index i.e. will not raise insulin levels
- High in fibre
Calming and focusing, whilst stimulating at the same time, Buddhist monks once consumed Matcha in preparation for enduring 12-hour straight meditation sessions (see history of Matcha).
