Matcha tea is a green tea that has become increasingly popular due to its unique flavor, its versatility, and its varied and wonderful health benefits.

Matcha is an ancient tea of Chinese origin, which many people know for its close relationship with Japanese culture and its presence in the renowned Tea Ceremony.

Matcha has the singularity that it already comes in a powder, as its leaves are finely ground in its production. This is one of the characteristics that differentiate it from the rest of the teas and infusions.

This powdered presentation makes  its health benefits more powerful because all of its healthy compounds go directly into our cup in high concentrations.  Something that wouldn’t be possible using  the non-soluble compounds of the sachets or loose leaves of other teas.

Come discover the 5 main health benefits that Matcha tea has to offer!

1. High in Antioxidants

One study found high concentrations of EGCg catechins in Matcha tea, resulting in much more EGCg than other green teas and up to 6 times the amount of antioxidants found in Goji berries.

This allows you to fight free radicals in the body, which not only delays the symptoms of old age; It also maintains  nails, skin, and hair healthy and shiny.

2. Invigorating and anti-stress.

Matcha tea contains a high content of chlorophyll and L-theanine, which  gives it a sweeter flavor and offers a calming effect.

It also has high levels of theine compared to other teas, so even with its relaxing effect, it increases  your energy and attention levels.

So while it may seem paradoxical, Matcha tea gives you energy, while lowering your stress levels; keeping you calm yet alert.

3. Protects the liver and heart.

A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that drinking Matcha increases HDL cholesterol, better known as “the good cholesterol” that protects the heart. This good  cholesterol aids  the liver to remove bad cholesterol from the body.

And since HDL helps metabolize these processes within the liver, it also improves the liver’s  function and keeps it protected and healthy.

4. Supports weight loss

The high concentrations of catechins in Matcha promote fat oxidation.

Several studies show that this tea increases the body’s calorie-burning rate. While NOT adding additional stress to your body and heart in this process.

5. Increased brain function

Additional studies found that the components contained in the Matcha play a fundamental role in strengthening brain function. For example, the L-theanine found in Matcha tea aids concentration.

Matcha is not just another green tea, but a superfood with numerous benefits and endless uses, being increasingly included in hot and cold drinks, pastries, and even modern cocktails.

For its wonderful benefits, unmatched flavor and versatility, we recommend Matcha tea: a genuine wonder of the East.
