Detox & Calm: The Magic of Matcha

06 Jan, 2023

There’s something magical about nature. There the green grass, the green leaves, and the green algae in the ocean. The green of nature is cleansing to both the mind and the soul. 

So don’t forget one more green thing you’ll want to add to your list of nature’s goodness. That’s magical matcha. It’s the healthiest way to drink green tea on the planet. 

Matcha is fine powder ground for healthy and nourishing green tea leaves. Green tea is overflowing with health nurturing ingredients. Many studies over the years show that green tea can help promote a long, active, and healthy life.

What’s the difference between Matcha and Green Tea?

Matcha is grown differently than traditional green tea. 

The tea plants are shaded from the sun a whole month before harvest, which boosts chlorophyll levels and stimulates amino acid production. 

Matcha is a more condensed version of green tea, packed with all of its life extending attributes. More years to play, swim, and dance in the sun? Yes please. 

The Many Health Benefits of Matcha 

Here’s why matcha has become a favorite for mixing in smoothies or baked goods, or even just pouring a cup for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up. 

Antioxidants galore
Antioxidants are essential to the fountain of youth. They fight free radicals which can cause disease and physical aging. They can play a part in keeping your heart young. And since they protect against disease and oxidative stress, they can help you FEELING young and vibrant, too. 

People have been drinking green tea for centuries for its high concentration of catechins (strong antioxidants). And matcha has 137 times more antioxidants than regular-brewed green tea! Talk about a health kick. 

Liver detoxification
Have your nights of fun lead to many headaches and hangovers? Then your liver is  probably desperate for the powerful detoxification abilities of matcha. 

Matcha is excellent for detoxification because it helps reduce liver enzyme levels and protects the liver from damage. And if you’ve spent many nights eating, drinking, and not getting enough sleep, your liver could probably use some TLC.

Promotes calmness
Did you know mice can get stressed? True story.  And in studies,  they get super calm with matcha tea. Us humans seem to respond with less stress as well due to all of matcha’s healthy flavonoids.

Matcha tea seems to help activate dopamine. This is a neurotransmitter that makes your brain feel calm and happy. That way, you can reduce anxiety and focus back on the important things. Life wasn’t meant for worrying.

So if you’re wondering if that cup of coffee first thing in the morning is contributing to your sense of jitteriness and anxiety, consider swapping your cup of joe with a cup of matcha, and notice how much calmer you feel throughout the day. 

Weight loss
Matcha can help you lose weight, and keep off the pesky pounds. 

According to a study published in 2018, people who drank Matcha had increased fat burn during exercise.

Green tea is widely used to help speed the metabolism and increase fat burn. And it does it in a healthier way than a lot of the other things we use to speed up weight loss.
