3 Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea Powder

Updated on July 3, 2017

Not only does Matcha taste good, but it has incredible health benefits that will leave you feeling great for years to come.

Matcha green tea powder has the nutritional content of ten cups of green tea. Because hot water can only extract so much nutrients from green tea, you only get a small amount of the true benefits of green tea leaves. With matcha, you can make the most out of it because it is stone ground tea leaves, which releases the nutrients much more effectively. Here are some of health benefits you can get from Matcha.

  • Fights Cancer and Toxins: Catechins are potent antioxidants that are abundant in matcha even though it's scarce in other foods. Catechins are really important for their cancer-fighting properties. They also fight the bad effects done by polluction, UV rays, and radiation, which leads to cell and DNA damage in your body.
  • Boosts Metabolism: Matcha is great for helping to lose weight in a healthy way or fighting the effects of aging by boosting your metabolism without stressing the body or raising your blood pressure. A recent study found that it boosts the calorie burning rate from a normal 8%-10% of your daily calories to 35%- 43%.
  • Helps Concentration: Matcha contains the amino acid L-Theanine which increases your concentration and your energy by affecting your brain functioning. It will leave you relaxed yet alert. In fact, Japanese monks have used matcha to help them during their meditation.

Not only does matcha help your overall state of well-being, but it makes you feel good throughout the day and give you the energy and concentration you need to do your best.
