Title: Benefits of Matcha Tea

The Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea Powder
Mother Nature has truly blessed mankind with its
bounty  from green tea. In terms of special taste
and long lasting  health effects green tea gives
a wide array of matcha tea  especially in green
tea powder form. Even in its powder form,  green
tea or matcha tea has high fiber content and
 unmatched antioxidant performance. It can even
be taken  either hot or cold.
 Matcha green tea provides many fresh health
benefits such as  increasing the bodys vigor and
vitality, improving the diet,  helping control
most illnesses, controlling weight gain,  helping
to fight cancer, purifying the blood, controlling
blood  sugar, increasing antioxidants, and
providing the body with  additional minerals and
Matcha tea and tea leaves
When people brew a cup of green tea leaves, the
water even when boiling can only extract a
fraction of the benefits from the leaves. The
majority of the health benefits such as minerals
and vitamins remain trapped inside the green tea
Naturally you cant just chew tea leaves, so the
solution to this is matcha tea. Matcha tea is
simply straight and stoneground tea leaves with
the final product coming out in powder form.
Thus, a single serving of matcha tea or green tea
powder retains all its health benefit potency
while to match this same potency, you will need
to drink at least ten cups of brewed green tea
Matcha tea is unmatched in antioxidants For the
novice, antioxidants are chemical compounds that
naturally occur in the body and help fight aging
and chronic illnesses. On mainstream media
antioxidant properties are frequently mentioned
for a wide array of fruits and vegetables. While
these are true, very little mention is given to
matcha tea or green tea in powder form, even with
its containing more antioxidants in one cup of
green tea than a handful of green vegetables
according to the latest research on antioxidants.
In a research done at Tufts University using a
method called Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity
(ORAC), researchers discovered that matcha tea
contains exponentially 20 times more antioxidants
than in pomegranates, blueberries, and green
vegetables. Matcha tea contains 1,573 units per
gram compared to only 105 units per gram in
pomegranates and vegetables and 93 units in
Matcha tea has catechins Matcha tea green tea
powder contains a unique class of antioxidants
called catechins. They are a rare type of
antioxidant and very potent against cancer cells.
In particular, EGCG or epigallocatechin gallate
and its other catechins drive out the effects of
free radicals caused by pollution, too much UV
rays, radiation, and chemicals that can lead to
DNA and other cell damage. In fact, one cup of
matcha tea alone contains over 60 percent of
Matcha tea helps you to relax, concentrate, or
focus Modern research has proven that matcha tea
contains high levels of L-Theanine, a rare amino
acid that promotes relaxation by helping the
brain function properly. Often stress can induce
beta waves and cause an agitated state whereas
L-Theanine induces alpha waves that relaxes the
brain and body. The L-Theanine in matcha tea is
five times more than what is contained in black
and green tea leaves.
