If you haven’t been living under a rock during the last few years, then you’ve probably heard of Matcha! At your local coffee shops, health stores, on social media, in cakes and pastries, lattes, teas and healthy breakfast items.
Ole Nutrients Matcha has skyrocketed in popularity in Egypt. Its unique taste and various health benefits have attracted the attention of many around the world.
Matcha includes nutrients from the entire tea leaf, which means it contains a bigger amount of antioxidants and caffeine than usually found in green tea.
Here are some of the benefits of Matcha tea:
Helps lose weight:
One very specific catechin found in Pure Matcha that boosts your metabolism is called the EGCG. EGCG is almost 140 times greater in matcha than in your average green tea. Matcha also blocks the ability of digestive enzymes to break down fat, a step necessary for fat to enter our cells. So instead of absorbing and storing the fat, it gets passed through the body. Burn more calories, lose more fat!
High in antioxidants:
Matcha is packed with catechins, which are very important antioxidants that help fight bacteria, free radicals, infections and may reduce cell damage and prevent chronic disease.
Boosts brain function:
Matcha is rich in caffeine and L- theanine, which can help improve many aspects of brain function. It has also proved to improve attention, memory, and reaction time.
Promotes heart health:
Matcha has been used to decrease levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It’s also been shown to help prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which is another factor that could protect against heart diseases.
To conclude, studies have proven many health benefits associated with matcha green tea, ranging from enhancing weight loss to boosting brain function.
It’s also a delicious drink that’s very easy to prepare and can be included in various different foods. You can have it plain – or can also whip it up into a latte or dessert of your choice, if you’re feeling creative.
