Well it’s definitely time that you have. It is well known as one of many ingredients in a natural energy supplement. This tea was used by Japanese monks over a thousand years ago to help them meditate. Matcha would help the monks remain calm, but alert, during long hours of sitting. Fast forward to the modern age and science has recently confirmed what the monks already knew; matcha promotes a state of well-being and relaxation.
The relaxation benefits that matcha provides are a result of this tea containing an abundance of L-theanine, a powerful amino acid. L-theanine can be found in all teas but matcha contains up to five times more of this amino acid than green and black teas.
In addition, L-theanine may help with learning and memory while simultaneously inhibiting the side effects of caffeine. In other words, matcha tea promotes clarity of the mind and helps tea drinkers concentrate without causing a state of nervous energy that usually happens after drinking coffee. Additional benefits of matcha tea include, but are not limited to:*Contains the powerful antioxidant EGCG which has powerful cancer-fighting properties* Boosts the metabolism and helps to burn calories* Rich in vitamins, fiber, and chlorophyll* Enhances the mood* Contains selenium, vitamin C, magnesium, zinc, and chromium*Lowers blood sugar and cholesterol.
As you can see, drinking matcha tea is a simple and easy way to add nutrients to the everyday diet. It is also virtually calorie free and, therefore, an excellent addition to an effective weight loss program. In fact, a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that drinking this super powered tea may increase thermogenesis (a process that helps the body burn calories naturally) from the normal 8-10% daily energy expenditure to at least a 35% daily expenditure. Using this tea for weight loss purposes offers a safe alternative to the questionable pharmaceuticals that are known to cause harmful side effects.
