Benefits of Matcha Tea
Want to include caffeine in your diet but hate the caffeine crash? Try Matcha tea instead!
How is Matcha different?
Matcha has more than ten times the antioxidants as compared to green tea. Antioxidants keep your skin looking younger and vibrant.
Recently, Matcha has gained a lot of popularity and for the right reasons. Studies of matcha and its components have uncovered a variety of benefits for the heart and body.
Matcha tea also helps to boost brain function as it has a compound called L-theanine.
Matcha is also shown to protect against cancer.
What does science say?
Matcha is indeed packed with high amounts of antioxidants that can help to fight inflammation in your body and help maintain your health.
It was also found that matcha contains up to 137 times more antioxidants than an average-grade variety of green tea and up to 3 times more antioxidants than high-quality teas.
A study conducted in 2017 in this regard examined the effects of matcha tea on participants’ mood and cognitive performances.
It was found that matcha helps to improve attention, reaction time needed and memory.
The presence of the compound L-theanine also alters the effects of caffeine, facilitating alertness and avoiding the crash in energy levels seen after caffeine consumption.
Few initial studies have also asserted the benefits of matcha tea against cancer cells including prostate cancer, skin cancer, lung as well as liver cancer.
Another pro tip is that a squeeze of a lemon or lime i.e. vitamin C to the matcha iced tea also boosts its antioxidant content even more.
