We love a bit of Matcha!
We are offering it in our lattes, juices and smoothies for its brilliant health benefits.
Matcha contains the nutrients from the entire tea leaf, which results in a greater amount of caffeine and antioxidants than typically found in green tea.
Here's a short list of ways Matcha tea helps improve your health...
...and come and try one of our drinks to test the theory ;-)
1. High in antioxidants
Antioxidants help stabilise harmful free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells and cause chronic disease.
2. Helps protect the liver
The liver is vital to health and plays a central role in flushing out toxins, metabolising drugs, and processing nutrients.
3. Boosts brain function
Multiple studies have linked caffeine consumption to improvements in brain function, citing faster reaction times, increased attention, and enhanced memory. Matcha also contains a compound called L-theanine, which alters the effects of caffeine, promoting alertness and helping avoid the crash in energy levels that can follow caffeine consumption.
4. Helps promote heart health
Some studies have shown that drinking green tea, which has a similar nutrient profile to matcha, may help protect against heart disease. Green tea has been shown to reduce levels of total and “bad” LDL cholesterol.
5. Helps you lose weight
Take a look at any weight loss supplement and there’s a good chance you’ll see “green tea extract” listed in the ingredients. Green tea is well known for its ability to enhance weight loss. In fact, studies show that it may help speed up metabolism to increase energy expenditure and boost fat burning.
