As the centuries-old Japanese tea is making its way across the world, more and more people are realising that it is both full of flavour and health benefits.
Here are just six reasons why you should join the global lifestyle trend.
- It is packed with antioxidants
The high levels of antioxidants found in Matcha are probably its primary health benefit and make it one of the best superfoods. They protect the body against tissue damage, have anti-inflammatory properties, strengthen the immune system and do much, much more.
- It facilitates weight loss
For those trying to slim down, Matcha supports weight loss in a number of ways. It boosts metabolism and enhances fat oxidation, meaning you burn more calories and fat, as well as decreases appetite and fat absorption.
- It makes your skin glow
Also known as the Japanese anti-aging secret, Matcha has been shown to improve skin elasticity and acts as a natural sunscreen to protect against damaging UV sunlight, making sure skin looks young, revitalised and healthy.
- It reduces stress and anxiety
Matcha is full of L-theanine, a natural plant-based substance that reduces the stress hormone cortisol. This lowers anxiety levels while increasing concentration, focus and alpha brain waves known for inducing relaxation.
- It gives an energy boost without the jitters
The combination of caffeine and L-theanine means that Matcha releases energy gradually so that you feel both calm and alert for up to five hours without the jitters and crash associated with coffee.
- It is extremely versatile.
On top of enjoying a cup or bowl of tea, you can put a scoop of power in almost anything, from your breakfast porridge to your mid-morning smoothie, there are endless ways to enjoy Matcha.
