Health Benefits

Matcha has been known for centuries in asian medicine for its health benefits.
Here are some reasons to embrace the matcha movement.
Antioxidants & Support of the Immune System
In addition to providing trace minerals and vitamins (A, B-complex, C, E, and K), matcha tea is loaded with Antioxidants.
Antioxidants are the body's clean crew ! They are the nutrients and enzymes responsible for fighting against the negative effects of UV radiation, giving us younger-looking skin, and preventing a number of life-threatening maladies. They are also known to increase metabolism, control blood sugar and lower cholesterol.

Matcha is recognized as one of the highest graded food when it comes to antioxidant concentration.

Matcha is particularly full of catechins, the most potent and beneficial antioxidants. They are linked to fighting diseases such as cancer and heart disease. They also work at sterilizing your mouth and giving you a fresh breath. One specific catechin in matcha is specifically known to boost metabolism. It's called the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

Below is an oxygen radical absorbance capacity comparison between good quality Matcha and other popular antioxidant-rich foods. (On a per gram basis). Matcha is far ahead.

Body & Skin Natural Detox

Matcha works as an amazing natural detox for the body and skin

Thanks to the shaded growth, matcha leaves are packed full of chlorophyll which is known to protect the skin from UV rays and rejuvenate skin cells. If you're starting to get a few wrinkles, consuming matcha (drinking it or applying it directly to your skin) can do miracles.

Chlorophyll can also help reduce acne. It helps detoxify your body of harmful toxins and repair the cells used to protect your skin.

Matcha also contains dietary fiber, a detoxifying agent that controls blood sugar and appetite, as well as eases digestion.
Focus, Relaxation & Alertness

Matcha has been used for centuries by monks to help them meditate. Indeed, Matcha contains a large number of important amino acids

In particular, one called L-Theanine is known for stimulation the production of alpha wave activity in the brain, resulting in a state of calm alertness. It also help reduce anxiety, enhance mood and heighten concentration.

Matcha was also used by samurai warriors before battle to help them keep their energy longer. This is because matcha also contains caffeine

The duo L-Theanine/Caffeine works amazing to boost a sustained and focused energy, lasting up to six hours.
Metabolism Boost & Weight Loss

Matcha contains EGCG, an antioxidant linked to weight loss. EGCG has been known to increase your metabolism and help you burn calories when combined with moderate-intensity exercise.

A study on matcha carried out in 2003 found EGCG increased the fat burning capabilities in bike riders by 17%. After consuming the equivalent of 1-2 cups of matcha, the EGCG helped them burn fat significantly faster when they got on the bike.

In addition, matcha countains caffeine which is known to have a synergistic effect with the catechins in matcha to further increase metabolism.
Green Clean Energy

Matcha is considered a green clean energy as it is an all-natural source of caffeine without the jitters and crash you would have by directly drinking a cup of coffee. 

In addition to the wonderful duo L-Theanine/Caffeine that we talked about earlier, this clean energy has to do with the way matcha is digested

When you consume matcha, the caffeine molecules bind to more stable larger molecules that matcha countains. For example they bind to catechins. The binding slows the breakdown of caffeine in the bloodstream. When there is no caffeinated jolt to the system, there is no spike in the body's insulinadrenaline and glucose levels. 
This means you say goodbye to the jitter and crash and get a wonderful sustained energy that can last up to 6 hours.
