WHAT IS MATCHA?
Matcha is pure green tea leaves specifically grown and stone ground into a fine green powder, that creates a state of calm alertness and focused energy. It's no wonder Buddhist monks have historically used matcha before meditation, and samurai warriors before battle to help them stay calm and alert!
In fact, one serving is the equivalent to 10 cups of regular green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content. This is why it's used as a potent source of raw fuel to promote great health and general well-being. It's loaded with polyphenol compounds and catechins, which provides you with a long-lasting physical and mental boost, that can help you be more productive and energised for the things you love.
Prevent Cell Damage & Lower Risk Of Chronic Diseases - One cup of our matcha has as many nutrients and antioxidants as 10 cups of regular green tea. It's packed with exponentially more antioxidants than any other superfood, including chlorophyll and other catechins which helps detoxify the body of accumulated harmful chemicals, toxins and heavy metals.
Increased Alertness & Productivity - Matcha contains 35mg of caffeine (per serving) for that extra kick, but unlike a cup of coffee matcha gradually releases caffeine into your body for a period of up to 6 hours, due to a rare natural energy boosting amino acid called L-theanine. This gives you sustainable energy throughout the day without a caffeine crash, anxiety or the 'jitters'.
Promotes Weight Loss - According to research in the Journal of Nutrition, matcha has been shown to increase thermogenesis (the rate at which our bodies burn calories), from 10% to 40% of daily energy use. Matcha can boost metabolism and burn fat by up to four times without raising blood pressure or heart rate. It's alkaline too, which helps your body’s PH balance.
Boost Memory & Concentration - Matcha contains L-theanine which according to research published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Nutrition, increases the production of serotonin helping you to perform better. This chemical serve to enhance mood, and promote better concentration for up to 6 hours.
Improve Skin Health -The catechins in matcha help protect your skin from free radicals, preventing signs of ageing. Due to the amazing anti-inflammatory properties of EGCG, it also helps treat rosacea and even acne by reducing redness. In a study published by the Medical College of Georgia, the EGCG found in green tea rejuvenated surface skin cells that would otherwise die. This is why some people use it directly on their faces!
Strengthens Immune System - Just one cup of our matcha provides substantial quantities of Potassium, Vitamins A,C, E, K and Vitamin B-complex. EGCG in matcha assists your body's production of T-Cells which reduces inflammation and fights pathogens.
