6 Benefits of Drinking Matcha Green Tea
For thousands of years green tea has been used throughout Asia as one of the most effective medicines. Today, in many people’s’ eyes green tea is just a bitter drink. However, despite such opinions, green tea has numerous health benefits, from lowering the blood pressure to preventing cancer. And if you make your tea from a powdered Matcha green tea, you are taking advantage of all of its nutrients.
Keeps You Calm
Japanese Zen Buddhist monks have been using green tea as a successful means of relaxation and meditation, but it also kept them on high alert. That high state of consciousness is caused by the amino acid called L-Theanine, which is present in the leaves that are used for making this tea. This amino acid encourages the production of alpha waves in your brain which can lead to the state of being completely relaxed, but without drowsiness.
Memory and Concentration Booster
Another effect of the above mentioned amino acid includes production of serotonin and dopamine. These two can boost your mood, improve your memory and provide you with better concentration. So, if you are expecting a busy day, start it with a hot bowl of Mista Matcha green tea in the morning.
Loaded with Antioxidants
Antioxidants are one of the magic ingredients of any foods and drinks. They are responsible for fighting against the effects of UV rays and free radicals, thus preserving our skin as young and flexible. That is why you should drink at least one bowl of tea each day, which contains up to 5 times more antioxidants than any other foods, and have the most perfect and healthy skin.
Filled with Catechin
Catechin is a type of antioxidants which is the most beneficial, and one specific catechin (Epigallocatechin gallate EGCG) is widely recognized as means of fighting cancer. What is more, this particular catechin makes up 60% of all the catechins in this green tea. Another beneficial property of catechins is that they are highly successful in fighting bacteria and viruses, thus curing your flu, throat infections and preventing tooth decay, as well as other dental conditions.
Burns Calories and Detoxifies the Body
If you are troubling with excess weight, than drinking green tea will help you. This tea is known for speeding up your metabolism, thus burning more fat than other foods. Also, it will have no negative side-effects, such as high blood pressure and increased heart beat, unlike other weight loss regimes. What is more, not only will it help you burn the fat, but it will clean your body off any heavy metals and chemical toxins, due to high levels of chlorophyll.
Builds a Strong Immune System
Today, having a strong and healthy immune system is rare, due to higher exposure to stress and unhealthy foods. But, if you drink just one bowl of green tea every day, you are loading your body with vitamins A and C, iron, protein, calcium and potassium. Besides providing your body with all these ingredients, this green tea has amazing antibiotic properties, which will work on your overall health. Additionally, it will help you regulate the cholesterol levels, thus lowering the risks of heart diseases.
Stop using processed teas that come in bags, and run to the store and get your dose of this magical tea. Start each day with a bowl of health and positive energy and stay strong throughout the day.

Lorelai, it was interesting to read that matcha green tea has been known to help speed up your metabolism which could lead to the burning of more fat and calories. I’m really trying to fit into one of my favorite dresses this summer. I also love drinking healthy things, so I may need to give this a try.
