What are the Health Benefits of Matcha Tea?

One serving of matcha tea is the nutritional equivalent of 10 cups of green tea. Powdered green tea has 137 times more antioxidants than green tea. When you drink matcha you receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf.

Matcha tea is an easy and simple way to add powerful health benefits to your everyday diet. Amongst its many health benefits, matcha:

  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body
  • Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
  • Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar

Green is truly the color of health. Chlorophyll (the element that gives green their signature verdant color) is also a powerful detoxifier, helping to eliminate heavy metals from the body. And matcha is richer in chlorophyll than other green teas, making it a superior daily detox.

Why is matcha better than loose leaf tea?
In reality, the only way to truly take advantage of green teas full potential is to consume the entire leaf. But that doesn’t mean you need to start eating tea leaves. The simplest solution is to just enjoy a bowl of matcha. Because matcha is tea leaves, it provides you powerful arsenal of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids.

When it comes to helping you achieve and maintain optimum health, matcha is without equal.

Why does this matter?
Antioxidants are the body’s defense agents, that prevent aging and chronic diseases. Put simply, the more you have, the better equipped your body is in the fight against infections and disease.
