MATCHA GREEN TEA

The best way to benefit from green tea’s antioxidant potential is to consume the entire leaf. This is matcha green tea : pure stoneground tea leaves. The health benefits of matcha tea exceed those of green tea because when you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. Matcha green tea has been linked to heart- and cardiovascular health as it improves both blood flow and the ability of your arteries to relax. A 2007 study observed that complementing matcha green tea with vitamin C increases the amount of catechins available for your body to absorb.

A cancer-fighter, a fat-burner, and much more, matcha leaves leave other green teas behind : One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.

In clinical trials, green tea extracts were found to be effective at suppressing environmentally induced breast canceriand inhibiting T lymphocyte expansion in autoimmune diseasesii. Favorable results have also been demonstrated in skin disease and skin cancer, with in vitro and in vivo animal and human skin studies showing green tea’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, photoprotective, and chemopreventative effects after both topical applicationiiiand oral consumptioniv

Matcha provides a powerful arsenal of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids over ten times as concentrated as brewed green tea1. When it comes to helping you achieve and maintain optimum health, matcha is without equal.

The Chlorophyll that gives matcha green tea its green color is a powerful detoxifier, helping to eliminate both chemicals and heavy metals from the body. As matcha green tea is carefully shade-grown, it is richer in chlorophyll than other green teas and thus an even better at purifying and detoxifying the body.

Matcha contains a unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins that provide potent anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting propertiesv. Catechins counteract the effects of free radicals caused by pollution, UV rays, radiation, and chemicals, which can lead to cell and DNA damage. Matcha is also rich in L-Theanine, a rare amino acid that actually promotes a state of relaxation and well-being by acting upon brain function. While stress can induce beta waves, causing an excited, more agitated state L-Theanine creates alpha waves, which lead to a state of relaxed alertness and may even enhance memory and learning.

Matcha green tea can also enhance energy levels - and a recent study in particular found that matcha improved physical endurance by 24% ! Matcha is also a great addition to a weight loss program by boosting metabolism & helping you burn more calories without causing any increase in blood pressure or heart rate. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that matcha green tea extract has unique thermogenic properties that promotes increased fat oxidation. The study found that consuming matcha green tea increased thermogenesis (the rate your body burns calories) from 10% to 40% of daily energy use. In other words, Matcha Green Tea increases your body's ability to burn fat and calories by 4 times! Making it a super-effective but very safe weight loss tool.
