Benefits of Matcha
Detoxifies the body
Matcha has higher levels of chlorophyll than other green teas. Chlorophyll is the pigment responsible for giving the leaves their green color. Chlorophyll is linked to the ability to detoxify the body. It helps to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisons, dioxins and hormone disruption.
Aids in Weight Loss
Matcha tea is proven to assist in the process of thermogenesis (the creation of heat in one's body) which results in higher metabolic rates by absorbing carbohydrates and lipids.
Boosts Energy Levels
Due to a unique set of natural amino acids found in matcha tea, drinking this tea gives us an energy boost without any side effects (making it the ultimate "energy drink"). Most people experience the stimulative effects of a cup of matcha for several hours.
Matcha tea is loaded with catechins which are the most potent and beneficial antioxidants. One specific catchin called epigallocatchin gallate (EGCg) makes up 60% of the catechins in matcha green tea. A 2003 study found thatmatcha tea had an extremely high EGCg content, at least three times higher than the largest literature value for other green teas. Matcha powder contains 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea.
Boosts the Immune suystem
Matcha tea has extremely high levels of polyphenols, catechins, flavonoids, and antioxidants that help improve the body's defense system against bacteria and viruses. A recent study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences concluded that drinking matcha everyday greatly enhanced the overall response of the immune system.
Enhances concentration and improves cognitive function
Due to the presence of an amino acid called L-Theanine, matcha tea increases memory and concentration. L-Theanine is found to aid in the formation of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) which stimulates dopamine and serotonin levels. Drinking matcha tea makes you happy!

Antioxidants in matcha green tea help prevent heart disease by relaxing blood vessels and preventing blood clots.
Aids in Gastrointestinal Health
