Matcha is a high-grade, finely ground, concentrated green tea powder. Tea-powdering originated in China in the 12th century and has a long history of use in traditional tea ceremonies in Japan. Matcha is rich in antioxidants, amino acids, chlorophyll, as well as other nutrients and vitamins. The green tea also contains the highest concentration of catechins antioxidants compared to all natural fruits and vegetables on the ORAC scale. Research has shown that Matcha can reduce the risk of cancer, inhibit tumour growth, protect against ultraviolet B radiation and improve immune system function. [1,2]

Studies show consuming catechin-rich Matcha powder boosts the metabolism, significantly lowers body fat mass, BMI, body weight, subcutaneous fat and waist circumference. Its profile benefits exercise performance and helps speed recovery in athletes.

Matcha contains high Levels of L-theanine which in combination with caffeine instils a state of relaxed alertness, thereby improving attention, memory and reaction time. It is also naturally high in chlorophyll which makes it an effective detoxifier. Extensive research indicates it could aid in the prevention and improvement of many diseases — especially heart disease, stroke, type II diabetes, cancer and obesity. [3,4,5,6]
