Cacao is a true superfood with benefits for both body and mind. Cacao is found to enhance
the brain levels of calming hormones, restoring feelings of well-being. It contains a
compound called phenethylamine (PEA) which triggers the release of endorphins and
pleasure stimulating neurochemicals. Raw cacao also stimulates the production of serotonin
(the feel good chemical), responsible for improving the mood and decreasing stress and is
loaded with anandamide, popularly known as a “bliss” molecule that produces a feeling of
euphoria. Its stress busting action is also due to the presence of high levels of the stress-reducing
substances, valeric acid and magnesium. High concentrations of magnesium in this
superfood work to generate energy and combat fatigue.
Matcha Health Benefits:
Matcha is high in a catechin called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) which helps prevent cell damage by reducing the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage. EGCG can also help boost metabolism.
Matcha is an excellent substitute for coffee, as a teaspoon serving of matcha contains enough caffeine to boost your energy. Caffeine from matcha is released into the body slowly over 6–8 hours, providing a longer lasting effect as opposed to a spike and crash with coffee.
This can be attributed to the presence of L-theanine in tea which lessens the stimulant effect of caffeine on the human nervous system giving matcha its relaxing and calming effects.
L-Theanine stimulates the production of alpha brain waves creating a state of relaxation and mental alertness similar to that achieved by meditation. Alpha waves are associated with a reduction in stress and may even boost creativity.
