Why Matcha Green Tea is so healthy


Antioxidants

Antioxidants are compounds that clean up free radicals which cause our bodies' harm. Many foods contain antioxidants, however pale in comparison to Matcha Tea Co green tea powder, which on a per gram basis contains 1300 units (according to the ORAC method of measuring antioxidants in food: Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).


L-Theanine

Green tea contains a unique amino acid called L-theanine and according to (Juneja 1999), consumption of L-theanine brings increased alertness and mental clarity. While many people turn to their beloved cup of coffee for an energy kick, they often feel the side-effect of jitters. Matcha Tea Co green tea powder contains approximately 35mg of caffeine (half of a standard coffee) and is absorbed into the bloodstream far slower than coffee, leading to sustained energy with no coffee jitters.


EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate)

In an industry filled with unnatural supplements, Matcha Tea Co green tea powder proves to be a worthy healthy alternative. Not only is it an effective supplement which provides sustained energy, it’s also loaded with EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), an antioxidant found in tea which boosts metabolism and helps the body break down molecules, which it then uses as energy. To put some context around just how powerful Matcha is, studies maintain it has up to 137x the antioxidants of regular green tea


Chlorophyll

The way in which Matcha Tea Co green tea powder is cultivated substantially boosts its chlorophyll levels. Chlorophyll is a powerful green pigment that aids the body in detoxification by eliminating free radicals and reducing cell damage. It also reduces hunger cravings and is a source of fibre, which keeps the body’s digestive system healthy.
