One of the most amazing health benefits of matcha tea, is that drinkers experience a consistent boost of energy throughout the day. The combination of Caffeine and L-theanine create an energy "buzz" that is unique and effective. In one study, researchers had thought that this was from the caffeine in matcha, but they found that it was actually the combination of matcha’s natural properties. Another recent study found that matcha even improved physical endurance by 24%.
Even if you aren’t facing a grueling workout, matcha can help you through the everyday marathon, whether it’s that project due the next day or playing with the kids.
Matcha tea contains a unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins, which aren’t found in other foods. In particular, the catechin EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) provides potent cancer-fighting properties.
Matcha also provides an abudant amount of vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium which are necessary for a strong immune system.
High quality matcha has a high content of gamma-amino butyric acid (Gaba), and amino acids (specifically L-Theanine), which is higher than most matcha. This combination helps eliminate the side effects of caffeine, while improving your health, strengthening your immune system, reducing stress and increasing relaxation.
Matcha is rich in L-Theanine, a rare amino acid that promotes a state of "Zen" relaxation and well-being by acting upon the brains functioning. While stress can induce beta waves an excited, more agitated state, L-Theanine creates alpha waves, which lead to a state of relaxed alertness. And while L-Theanine is common in all tea, matcha may contain up to 5X more of this amino acid than black and green teas.
Green is the color of health. Matcha helps to safely cleanse and purge the body of harmful elements. Chlorophyll the element that gives green tea and other plants their signature verdant color is also a powerful detoxifier, helping to eliminate both chemicals and heavy metals from the body. And because matcha is carefully shade-grown, it is substantially richer in chlorophyll than other green teas, making it a superior daily detox.
Matcha is packed with Aminos, antioxidants and powerful ECGC that help fight off disease and you feeling stronger every day.
Matcha has more of the popular antioxidant known as EGCG found in regular green tea. EGCG is a part of the antioxidant family known as catechins, which have been linked to better heart health, a healthy metabolism, and improved aging.
