Below are the top 10 reasons why drinking Matcha green tea will make you health and happy!

  1. Matcha has 137 times more antioxidant than a regular cup of green tea

  3. 1 Cup of Matcha is equivalent to 10 cups of regular green tea in terms of nutrients
  4. Low in caffeine, 1 cup of Matcha tea (1 gram serve)
    • contains 64% less caffeine than a small cup of coffee
    • is only 8.5% of the daily safe limit of caffeine intake for an adult
  5. Matcha calms your soul
    • Japanese Zen Buddhist monks have used matcha tea as part of their meditation ritual, which is due to the fact that the amino acid L-Theanine contained in the leaves used to make matcha induces relaxation without drowsiness.
  6. Boost Memory and concentration
    • Beyond just calming, the amino acid L-Theanine helps produce serotonin and dopamine which serves to improve memory and concentration as well as enhancing mood
  7. Sustainable clean energy
    • Although you do gain energy from the caffeine from matcha, it is much lower than a small cup of coffee. The clean energy boost you get from Matcha is from the combination of the nutrients it provides as well as the effects the L-Theanine produces. The good news is there are no usual side-effects you get from caffeine and the energy is sustained for longer without any downers.
  8. Kickstart your weight loss
    • Matcha green tea has been proven to increase metabolism which will be able to help with your dieting plans with increased calorie burning.
  9. Detoxify your body
    • Matcha is also a powerful detoxifier capable of naturally removing heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body.
  10. Jam packed with nutritional goodness!
    • Just a single cup of matcha green tea contains substantial amounts of Potassium, Vitamins A & C, Iron, Protein, and Calcium.
