The Caffeine and L-theanine in Matcha work together in synergy to provide a sustained energy boost for the mind. Plus potent levels of antioxidants act as your inner ninja! A catechin called EGCg clears your system of free radicals that contribute to disease and aging. Vitamins A, B-complex, C, E and K in Matcha are also great for your overall health and immune system.
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.
