Warrior warriors, Buddhist monks and millions of Japanese people have used matcha green tea for more than 100 years. The reason they continue to use matches is the enormous health benefits of this natural ingredient, and people can simply eat green tea once a day. Green tea is famous for its effects of weight loss, anti-oxidation and energy promotion. However, traditionally, green tea is only soaked in hot water and then the leaves will be removed. Therefore, people will not let us enjoy all the benefits of green tea.
Matching green tea is a fine powder of green tea leaves that grows in shaking. This means you will get the entire green tea leaf and your body can absorb all the nutrients of this ingredient. In this article, I want to give you some of the best advantages of drinking matcha green tea.
1. High antioxidant content
We have read this word before. Antioxidants are magical nutrients and enzymes that are responsible for the negative effects of UV radiation, making us look younger and prevent some life-threatening diseases. Antioxidants are things that all health-conscious people seek from foods such as raw fruits, green vegetables and [don't forget] dark chocolate. The first amazing benefit of MGT [Matcha green tea] is that only one cup provides more than five times as much antioxidant as any other food – this is the highest rated ORAC [oxygen radical absorption capacity] method.
2. Add catechin, EGCg
You may have heard that not all antioxidants are equal. Green tea contains a specific group of organic compounds called catechins. Among antioxidants, catechins are the most effective and beneficial. A specific catechin called epigallocatechin gallate [EGCg] accounts for 60% of the catechins in MGT. Among all antioxidants, EGCg is widely recognized for its anticancer properties. Scientists have found that matcha green tea has more than 100 times more EGCg than any other tea on the market.
3. Enhance calm
For more than a thousand years, Chinese Taoism and Japanese Zen Buddhist monks used it as a means of relaxation and meditation while remaining vigilant. We now know that this higher state of consciousness is due to the amino acid L-theanine contained in the leaves used to make it. L-Theanine promotes the generation of alpha waves in the brain, causing relaxation without the inner sleepiness caused by other "fallers."
4. Boots memory and concentration
Another side effect of L-theanine is the production of dopamine and serotonin. These two chemicals can boost your mood, improve your memory, and promote better attention – all of which can benefit everyone!
5. Improve energy levels and endurance
Warriors, medieval and early modern Japanese noble warriors, because of the vitality of tea, drank MGT before entering the battle. Although all green tea naturally contains caffeine, Matcha's energy boost is largely due to its unique other nutrients. The increase in endurance from a cup of green tea can last up to 6 hours, and due to the action of L-theanine, the matcha drinker does not experience the common side effects of irritants such as tension and high blood pressure. It's good, clean energy.
6. Burning calories
Drinking it can also increase metabolism and help the body burn fat four times faster than average. Similarly, unlike many food assistants on the market today, Matcha does not cause negative side effects such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure.
7. Detox body
In the last three weeks before harvesting the tea, the tea leaves were made into matcha and covered with leaves to deprive them of the sun. This has led to a huge increase in chlorophyll production in the new growth of these plants. The resulting high levels of chlorophyll not only make this tea beautiful and bright green, but also make it a powerful antidote that naturally removes heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body.
8. Strengthen the immune system
The catechins in this tea have been shown to have antibiotic properties that promote overall health. In addition, only one cup of Matcha Green Tea provides plenty of potassium, vitamins A and C, iron, protein and calcium. Further research suggests that the nutrients in Matcha may have the ability to inhibit HIV attack on human T cells.
9. Improve cholesterol
Researchers are not entirely sure that tea has such a positive effect on cholesterol, but studies in different populations have shown that people who regularly drink matcha green tea have lower LDL [bad] cholesterol levels and higher levels of HDL [good] cholesterol. Men who drink it are 11% less likely to have heart disease than men who don't drink matcha.
10. Amazing taste
Drinking just because it is healthy can be like swallowing drugs. This is unpleasant, you are afraid of it, but you feel obligated to do so. After all, this is good for you… right? Of course, would you rather look forward to improving your overall well-being? Of course you will!
Fortunately, unlike many other teas, they require sugar or lemon to satisfy the average consumer, and Matcha itself is absolutely wonderful. Its crisp botanical flavor complements the taste of L-Theanine amino acids, making Matcha a truly unique tea. So sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious hot matcha.
