Matcha has been proven to deliver three times the benefits of plain green tea.
So what is Matcha?
Matcha is a finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea. It is different to green tea as it is grown and processed differently and uses the whole leaf as opposed to straining the leaves away before consumption. The leaves are grown in the shade as this produces more theanine and caffeine. It is then processed and ground down in its whole form to produce the electric green powder we all know and love.
While green tea and matcha may technically be the same (as it is from the same plant), because of the way it is grown to produce more antioxidants and is ground down and consumed, you attain more benefits than just plain green tea.
What are the benefits of matcha?
If losing weight is your primary goal, then matcha is the way to go. It has no calories and can increase your body’s metabolism, meaning it can burn more calories at rest than before. As well as weight loss, matcha also aids to help your body detox.
Matcha can improve your heart health, in a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, results found regular consumption of matcha powder was also associated with lower blood pressure and a decreased risk of stroke.
