The might of matcha can’t be contained! Its meditative practice gives you peace of mind, but its natural f*cking goodness nourishes your body and being. Add this brilliant beverage to your routine and seize the benefits of matcha for yourself.
7 Health Benefits of Mighty Matcha
You know how to make matcha, and you know that you love it, but do you know why your brain and body crave this boujee b*tch of teas? It’s because the healthy it brings makes you feel so f**king good! Here are seven ways that adding matcha to your routine can improve your health.
Filled with Chlorophyll
The vibrant green of matcha comes from the chlorophyll-packed, shade-grown leaves. And when you enjoy matcha, you’re consuming the whole tea leaf – so you’re getting all sorts of benefits of chlorophyll that you don’t get in steeped teas. The unique benefits that chlorophyll brings to matcha include:
It removes toxins
It breaks down food to aid digestion
It has unique antioxidants to defend your body
This tea isn’t just pretty, it's f**king brilliant!
Raises Brain Function
Matcha contains caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine (what?!?). These work together for a calm, but focused state of mind. This combo has been shown to enhance cognitive function, improve mood, and increase concentration. So, you can get sh*t done, hon!
That caffeine and amino acid combo – it contributes to smooth energy, too! No coffee jitters for you. Just the pep in your step to carry you through the day. Or try a Classic Matcha Latte after lunch and forget about the afternoon slump!
Supports Immune System
Antioxidants are where matcha is like the dazzling gem in green tea’s crown (and our Gyokuro Ceremonial blend is the rare emerald!). With more antioxidants than green tea and most fruits, matcha is a cut above the rest.
Matcha is packed with powerful antioxidants that have antibacterial and antiviral properties. Regularly enjoying matcha may help support the immune system, protect against infections, and reduce the risk of illnesses.
Elevates Stress Relief and Relaxation
Those antioxidants and amino acids also work together to promote relaxation and reduce stress levels. It’s calming without making you drowsy. Its natural awesomeness, coupled with mindful practice is an excellent move toward stress relief and promoting overall well-being.
Promotes a Healthy Heart
Adding matcha to your tea routine may help your heart, too. The specific antioxidants called catechins that are abundant in matcha have been linked to reducing LDL cholesterol (aka – bad cholesterol) and improving blood pressure.
Whether you’re about preventing issues in a later season, or you’re taking on heart matters now – matcha is a natural way to support your ticker.
You’re beautiful just the way you are, but sometimes we may need a healthy upgrade. Matcha can help increase metabolism and fat oxidation, leading to a higher calorie burn and potential weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. That’s why we love adding matcha to our kicka** wellness routine!
It’s official – you’re out of excuses. There are too many damn good reasons to feed your matcha habit – and no guilt about it. So bust out your smoothie maker, frother, or whisk and make a cuppa! Your brain and body will thank you!
**Remember, while matcha green tea offers potential health benefits, individual results will vary. It's always best to enjoy matcha as part of a balanced and varied diet and consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice regarding any health issues.
