5 Reasons You Need To Start Drinking Matcha Green Tea

1. Superfood powerhouse
It’s packed to the max with antioxidants. These naturally occurring chemical compounds in matcha prevent ageing and chronic diseases, 20 times more than pomegranates or blueberries!
2. But wait, it gets better…
Out of all the antioxidants, the catechin epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) is the most widely recognised for its cancer fighting properties. Matcha green tea contains over 100 times more EGCg than any other tea. And here’s the best bit, since over 60% of the catechins in matcha are EGCg, a daily matcha regimen can improve your body’s well-being and balance.
3. The teatox of all teatoxes
Ditch that awful liquid diet of lemon juice and cayenne pepper! The chlorophyll in matcha is so much richer than in other green teas that it helps to act as a gentle detoxifier. Yes, you read that right, chlorophyll. Flashback to  Biology class in school, that same pigment that gives tea leaves their green colour also helps to remove chemicals and heavy metals from your body. AMAZING.
4. Weight loss wonder
Matcha boosts metabolism and burns fat, and it’s nothing like those diets that leave you drained and unable to focus. The amino acid L-Theanine contained in matcha leaves produce dopamine and serotonin which enhance your mood, improve memory, and promote better concentration. It really is the tea of dreams!
5. Keeps you cool, calm and collected
Buddhist monks have been drinking matcha for hundreds of years to keep them focused and alert whilst they meditate. Matcha is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up that’ll keep you calm and provide that extra needed focus during a stressful day at work.
