BETTER THAN LOOSE-LEAF?

Every day, countless people throw away valuable antioxidants and minerals. While seemingly unimanginable, that’s exactly what happens when you brew a cup of green tea because water can only extract a fraction of green teas benefits. The majority actually remains unused, trapped in the tea leaves. In reality, the only way to truly take advantage of green teas full potential is to consume the entire leaf.

Matcha is straight, stoneground tea leaves and provides you with green teas powerful arsenal of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids in a way no other green tea can!

ANTIOXIDANT POWERHOUSE

One of the biggest buzz words in nutrition, antioxidants are naturally occurring chemical compounds that prevent aging and chronic diseases. Nowadays, a variety of fruits and vegetables are lauded for their antioxidant properties, leading to a host of products with all kinds of claims. But matcha is unparalleled in comparison. Firstly, matcha is packed with exponentially more antioxidants according to the latest innovation in antioxidant research.

CATCHING AND ANTI-CANCER

Matcha tea contains a unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins, which aren’t found in other foods. In particular, the catechin EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) provides potent cancer-fighting properties.

Most importantly, EGCg and other catechins counteract the effects of free radicals from the likes of pollution, UV rays, radiation, and chemicals, which can lead to cell and DNA damage. Since over 60% of the catechins in matcha are actually EGCg, a daily matcha regimen can help restore and preserve the body’s integral well- being and balance.

ENERGY WITHOUT JITTERS

One of the most unexpected health benefits of matcha tea is that drinkers experience a boost of energy throughout the day. In one study, researchers had thought that is was from the caffeine in matcha, but they found that it was actually the combination of matcha’s natural properties. Another recent study found that matcha even improved physical endurance by 24%. Even if you aren’t facing a grueling workout, matcha can help you throughout the everyday marathon, whether it’s that project due the next day or getting the kids from school to soccer practice!
