Ryu Mei The Organic Matcha Company.
No matter what grade you choose, Matcha’s most notable trait is the impressive amount of health benefits it possesses. While green tea is already a forerunner in the health arena, the majority of its nutrients are wasted, thrown away with the discarded tea leaves. Since those same tea leaves are ground whole to make Matcha, the consumer is, in fact, drinking the entire leaf and gaining all the benefits available.
When the leaves are still on the plant, the shrubs are shaded in order to shield them from the sun. This slows photosynthesis and oxidization, and encourages the plant to produce more amino acids. This also means that the plant uses less of the nutrients that have been locked in since the winter. These nutrients include vitamin C, vitamin A, and dietary fiber, as well as beneficial amino acids.
Matcha has been found to contain one of the highest concentrations of the potent antioxidant EGCG, which is linked to the prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and impaired immune function. It also helps to regulate cholesterol, boost metabolism, and burn fat. Drinking Matcha regularly also helps to flush the system of any toxins.
Matcha also contains a negligible amount of caffeine; while it’s only a sixth of an average cup of coffee, the result is a much more natural-feeling boost of energy. Side effects that are normally associated with caffeine, such as jitters and an energy crash, are not present when drinking Matcha; it is a favorite before a workout.
