Powerful antioxidants fight Free Radicals
So what’s the opinion of the scientists? Here some research of the National Institute of Health (NIH)
Let me explain in human language.
We all need Antioxidants. The more, the better. But Why?
Because these Antioxidants eliminate the Free Radicals. But what are Free Radicals?
Free Radicals are atoms causing heart and brain diseases AND all types of cancer. The formation of Free Radicals is accelerated by chronic stress and fried food.
Conclusion: Free Radicals BAD, Antioxidants GOOD!
Where can we find these Antioxidants?
Large amounts of antioxidants can be found in fresh fruit and vegetables, but Matcha contains by far the highest concentration of all natural products!
Calming and relaxing Versus Energy and Endurance
Ready for some ENERGYYYY
First some Japanese history.
For over 1000 years, Japanese Zen Buddhist monks have used Matcha for supporting clarity of mind during the long hours of meditation.
But why did they use Matcha for their concentration?
Because of L-theanine, an amino acid in Matcha.
L-theanine affects our mood and evokes a feeling of relaxation and tranquility. Besides the calming and relaxing effect, L-theanine also influences in a good way our level of Dopamine, a substance that is crucial for our happiness.
MY Conclusion : You get that ‘Netflix and Chill’ feeling. You feel happy, relaxed and focused.
Some more history stuff? Let’s do this.
Warlike samurais drank Matcha before an expedition as a natural energizing drink. The level of energy after drinking a cup of Matcha may persist over six hours.
So Matcha is like coffee ?
NO, not at all!
We all know the nervous feeling and the energy drop after a coffee. You won’t have that with Matcha.
Conclusion : The caffeine part within Matcha provides a gentle energy boost that is balanced by L-theanine, an acid with calming properties. The combination of both elements allows the body to reach a state of alertness, without the nervous feeling associated to coffee.
Fat Burning, Detoxing Immunity Booster
You want to lose some weight? Then you’re at the right place!
Matcha and more specific EGCG (Catechins) accelerates the body’s metabolism, causing four times faster fat burning.
Try to integrate Matcha in a healthy lifestyle and you WILL see the difference!
Unlike many diets on the market, Matcha, being a natural supplement, does not cause any side effects such as increased heart rate or elevated blood pressure.
But! Don’t expect miracles if your lifestyle is unhealthy with sugars and fried food, then it won’t work.
Also Detoxing the body? UHU!
The high amount of chlorophyll, a green pigment that gives the green color to the leaves, cleanses the body of toxins.
But don’t you have differences in color?
Yes, there is, let me explain that part!
The young leaves on the top of the plant have a beautiful intense green color and contain the most Chlorophyll/Catechins/Anti-Oxidants. These young leaves generate the most health effects (First Harvest Matcha).
The more you go to the bottom of the plant, the less green the plant and the less health effects the Matcha offers (Second and Third Harvest Matcha).
So! Look for a beautiful bright green color if you want to experience the best Matcha. OR, I’ll make it easy for you, try our Ceremonial Matcha. The best one on the planet. 💚
