- Matcha is rich in antioxidants containing 14 times more antioxidants than blueberries and 137 times of regular green tea. Antioxidants provide protection against harmful free radicals that can cause tissue damage and aging.
- Contains an important amino acid called L-theanine which is proven to improve cognitive function by stimulating brain wave activity, improving focus and concentration.
- L-theanine slowly releases the natural caffeine in matcha, providing sustained energy for up to 6 hours without the jitters associated with drinking coffee.
- Matcha contains caffeine but not enough to trigger the production of cortisol which is a fat producing hormone and can stimulate the same physical symptoms associated with stress and anxiety.
