Matcha Healthy Energy - Great for the mind and Body!
Matcha green tea is the entire tea leaf, also known as Tencha, finely ground into a powder by traditional stone mills (picture left). Buddhist monks from China brought Matcha to Japan over 800 years ago and used Matcha for meditational purposes. Matcha soothes the body, but keeps the mind alert, which helps concentration.
It became popular and evolved into the Japanese Tea Ceremony and today is also used as a food ingredient and supplement to everyday foods.
Matcha Health Benefits
Unlike green-teas, with Matcha you are consuming the entire tea leaf. Therefore the antioxidant level is up to 10 times higher than in ordinary green tea. Unlike steeped tea, with Matcha you are getting 100% of the nutrients the leaf has to offer. The antioxidant concentration in Matcha is up to 137 times greater than that of green tea.
Aside from delivering a high dosage of catachins, chlorophyll, and antioxidants, Matcha exceeds its superfood competitors such as blueberries, pomegranates and spinach.
Matcha and Antioxidants
On a per gram basis Match contains extremely high antioxidant levels when compared to that of natural fruits and vegetables.
The USDA developed a standard to measure antioxidant levels. By this standard Matcha beats all competition at 1,284 ORAC* units.
(*ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity. The USDA and Tufts University used this test method to assess the antioxidant potency of foods and beverages. The higher the number, the higher the antioxidant benefit to our body.) This does not mean much until you realize that the second highest are Gojiberries at 253. Matcha clearly stands out as the only and best superfood also winning with high concentrations of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Natural Energy Boost
Matcha boosts your energy without the crash after consuming sugar or coffee. High in L-Theanines Matcha reduces stress while improving mental clarity and focus. At zero calories, Matcha is the perfect energy boost during your busy day.
Matcha can be drunk with water but can be used in a great number of recipes such as Matcha Smoothies and Lattes. You can find a number of our recipes on our blog
