This organic Japanese Matcha tea by DoMatcha is for sworn herb experts who sincerely value the health benefits and incredible calming feeling that this exceptional sort of green tea delivers! Matcha is a centerpiece of the official Japanese tea ceremony and this particular green tea powder comes from the Uji region in Japan where the ancient herb originated more than 900 years ago. For the making of this product, the brand uses the finest shade-grown leaves of 2nd harvest Matcha which is harvested each year in August and has more matured leaves than the first harvest. The Matcha powder is perfect for smoothies, frappes, shakes, lattes, tea, pastry, cookies and more.
This plant is an amazing source of health, because it contains 5 times more antioxidants than most other foods and 137 times more antioxidants than normal green tea! Matcha is also an incredible natural energy boosting dietary supplement that unlike regular green teas is caffeine-free. Drinking a cup of Matcha can provide you pure power for at least half the day and naturally increase your endurance without any stimulant side effects.
Additionally, this sort of green tea does a wonderful job bettering memory and concentration. That’s because it contains a lot of catechins which are also antioxidants. More than half of these catechins is the strong Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that has antioxidant activity, but its other interesting property is that it makes new brain cells, chiefly in the brain area responsible for short and long term memory. Here’s a fact: there isn’t another tea that contains more EGCG than Matcha. L-Theanine, which is an essential amino-acid, is also found present in this greenish super-herb. L-Theanine promotes Serotonin and Dopamine production. Serotonin and Dopamine are neurotransmitters that are responsible for our concentration, mood, mental state and memory too.
All these beneficial qualities make Matcha a perfect means for promoting a calm mind. It’s even used by Buddhist monks during their meditation to help them relax and meditate while still being alert. The explanation for this hides once more in the amino acid L-Theanine, because it doesn’t cause sleepiness, yet stimulates relaxation by increasing the alpha waves in the brain.
The Matcha health benefits don’t end here. The wholesome tea powder has amazing body detoxification properties, it helps you become toxin-free and cleanse your constitution. Numerous studies show that Matcha reduces the bad (LDL) cholesterol and increases the good (HDL) cholesterol, but scientists aren’t exactly sure how, so further researches are needed in that direction.
Need to normalize your metabolism, because it’s too slow? Well, Matcha can help with that, because it fastens the metabolism and helps you burn 4 times more calories than usual! That means it could serve as a natural supplement against obesity, as it can be consumed before workout for more efficient weight loss.
