Matcha Benefits

Rich In Antioxidants
Matcha is rich in catechins, that act as natural antioxidants. These could help stabilise harmful free radicals found in your body that can damage cells and cause chronic disease. So, including matcha in your diet could increase your antioxidant intake, helping you prevent several chronic diseases.
Boosts Energy Levels
Matcha powder have around the same caffeine levels as a cup of coffee (35mg in 1g). However, it doesn’t come with all the anxiety and jitters that some people get when they drink coffee. It could be helpful for those with anxiety too, as it is high in L-theanine which is highly effective at reducing anxiety
Increases Productivity
Matcha has been found in research to increase productivity levels for those who drink it. The combination of caffeine and L-theanine helps improve concentration. L-theanine boosts the production of alpha waves in the brain. These alpha waves encourage relaxation and induce a profound feeling of mental clarity and a more alert state of mind.
Strengthens Your Bones
Although not everyone thinks about actively taking measure to help bone strength, it is very important for health and fitness, especially as you are ageing. Matcha has been shown to increase bone mineral density, which can lower your risk of developing osteoporosis.
Weight Reduction
In most weight loss supplements there is a good chance that you will see “green tea extracts” in the ingredients section. This is because green tea is known to enhance weight loss and has shown in studies to increase metabolism. Matcha comes from the same plant and so has the same effects.
Reduces Anxiety
L-theanine is found in high concentrations in matcha that crosses the blood-brain barrier and helps promotes the feeling of relaxation and reduces both mental and physical stress.

A little note

While Matcha makes you feel good and tastes good, it is not a substitute for a balanced diet nor any medication. Any claims on green tea effect have not been substantiated on the basis of the scientific evidence listed on this website.
