While we’ve been around the globe and back again to get you the best quality matcha, we’ll leave it to Dr. Nat TCM, to take you through some of the many benefits of matcha.
“MATCHA TEA IS THE MECCA OF TEAS. IT PACKS A POWERHOUSE OF ALL THE ‘GOODS’; SUPER HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS, AS WELL AS CANCER FIGHTING AND WEIGHT LOSS PROPERTIES – THERE IS NO MATCH FOR MATCHA.”
ANTIOXIDANT BOOST: Like green tea, matcha is loaded with antioxidants. The matcha drinker consumes the entire leaf of the tea and not just the brew. As a result, 1 cup of matcha is said to contain the equivalent of multiple cups of green tea in terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content.
CLEANSING: Japanese varieties of matcha tea contain high levels of chlorophyll. According to many, chlorophyll is an excellent detoxifier which helps in cleansing the blood, whilst also maintaining the alkalinity of blood and tissues. It’s also said to assist in preventing the association of harmful toxins with colon walls, and flushes them out of the body.
WEIGHT LOSS: Sure to prick anyone’s ears – matcha is said to increase thermogenesis (the body’s own rate of burning calories). Of course, allowing the body to function on a more productive level overall, should undoubtedly add to one’s holistic wellness – excess weight loss included.
ENERGY: Matcha is said to contain a healthy form of caffeine. Important to note; it is not to be mistaken with the caffeine present in regular coffee. This unique caffeine, known as ‘theophylline’ can sustain the energy levels without any adverse effects. This slow release of energy is certainly a favourable option to a harsh cup of strong coffee.
IMMUNITY: It is said that matcha contains various antioxidants, polyphenols, EGCG, L-theanine, which collectively contribute in boosting the immune defence of the body and helps provide protection against various antigens. Of course a nice warm brew of matcha will help to ease digestive woes for many and let’s not forget that the gut is your pivot of health. Brilliant news for both your immunity and your well-being.
As you can see matcha tea, and its antioxidant boosting abilities, is something your whole body will thoroughly benefit from.
