Top 10 Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea

Matcha Green Tea is one of the most noticeable members of Japanese culture. Originating from the ancient Buddhist times of Japanese cults, the green tea was named ‘Matcha’ and thus, became a Japanese trademark. Produced from shade-grown leaves, the Japanese give it huge respect because of its amazing health benefits and curing capabilities.

Just like all other green tea leaves, Matcha has its own specific set of benefits. Knowing these really does inspire a person to grow them in their own backyard. But if you do get to find it somewhere, do not miss out on a drink – you’ll know the difference as soon as you take the first sip!

What exactly does this magic tea do? Here are 10 Health Benefits you need to know of Matcha Green tea:

Loads of Nutrition

Matcha tea, believe it or not, is healthier in terms of nutrition than most foods you might eat on a regular basis. Filled with all the Vitamins you could think of, it is especially a great source of Vitamin K and A along with others. Apart from that it is rich in other substances such as antioxidants and amino acids, making it a wonderful nutrient enriched drink!

Strengthens Immune System

Matcha also contains a good dose of catechins which are considered as the most potent anti-oxidants, boosting your immune system and acting as antibiotics. Moreover, the presence of Vitamins A and C along with Iron and Calcium makes this mix one-of-a-kind, strengthening the body’s defenses against diseases greatly.

Anti-oxidants

The presence of Catechins alone is respectable, but the amount of anti-oxidants Matcha provides OTHER than catechins is also humungous. This is by far the best drink you could have if your doctor recommends supplements which are high in antioxidants.

Energy

Who hasn’t heard that tea boosts you up in no time? Well, Matcha does it better than most. So be prepared for a day of zero laziness and all you need is a cup of Matcha in the morning.

Better Memory

For all those students out there preparing for exams, listen up! Matcha is what you need. The presence of L-Theanine results in the production of dopamine and serotonin, increasing your brain output. Basically, you remember things a lot better with Matcha!

Detoxification

Afraid of all the toxins collecting in your body? No worries! Have a drink of Matcha as soon as possible because it contains chlorophyll, which is all you need to purify your body of heavy metals and chemical toxins.

Improved Cholesterol Levels

Now, we don’t even know how this happens. But it is proven that Matcha, in fact, does improve your cholesterol levels. People who drink Matcha have a lot less ‘bad’ cholesterol than others who don’t.

Enhanced Mood

Well, what more could you want. No more bad days for you if you have Matcha nearby. Its leaves are known to give the person a calming sensation and greatly improving his moods. This also helps to relax the body and concentrate on things which you weren’t able to before.

Weight Loss

Matcha fights weight as if it was meant to do that. It has almost zero calories itself but apart from that, it burns fat better than most foods you could choose while losing weight. Also, with your metabolism boosted, you now have a much better digestion system and can easily take care of your weight problem!

Protection against Disease

HIV, Cancer, infections, intestinal disorders, you name it; Matcha can help prevent any of those from occurring. You don’t want that either so why not try this tea for yourself and make sure you don’t get any of those!

Organic Matcha just needs to be stirred into a glass of water for one of the most powerful health-giving tonics in the world. It has numerous benefits that will improve your health and help to maintain optimum health including shifting stubborn fat, blocking stress causing hormones, promoting restful sleep and so much more.
