Title: Amazing Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea – Craig Hochstadt


1
  • Amazing Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea

2
  • The 8 Wonders of Matcha Green Tea
  • If you're not drinking matcha green tea yet,
    you're behind the times! Get with the program and
    try this metabolism-enhancing, stress-reducing,
    immune-boosting, cholesterol-lowering,
    teenage-mutant-ninja cancer fighter! Although
    people drank green tea in China more than 1,000
    years ago, it became an important part of the
    Japanese culture. They named the tea matcha. Zen
    Buddhist monks drank it to remain alert and calm
    during long hours of meditation. Japanese tea
    leaves grow in the shade to increase chlorophyll
    content. These chlorophyll-rich leaves are then
    handpicked, steamed, dried and ground into a fine
    green powder. The history and cultivation of the
    tea is interesting, but what matters most to
    health enthusiasts is its antioxidant content.
    One cup of matcha green tea has as many
    antioxidants as 10 cups of regular tea!
  •  
  • MATCHA GREEN TEA ANTIOXIDANT LEVELS
  • 6.2 times that of Goji Berries
  • 7 times that of Dark Chocolate
  • 17 times that of Wild Blueberries
  • 60.5 times that of Spinach

  • Cancer Preventer

Green tea contains potent antioxidants called
catechins, which scavenge for dangerous free
radicals in the body. The most powerful catechin
found in green tea is EGCG (epigallocatechin
gallate), which is believed to be a powerful
anti-carcinogen. A 2003 University of Colorado
study confirmed that drinking 1 cup of matcha
green tea has 137 times the amount of antioxidant
EGCG compared to a conventional cup of green tea.

  • Anti-Ager

One of the locales in the world where people live
the longest is Okinawa, Japan. The Okinawan
people's longevity has been partly attributed to
regular consumption of Matcha Green Tea. Matcha
green tea is the most popular green tea in Japan,
but is rapidly gaining more popularity throughout
the world because of its ability to combat
inflammation, oxidation and aging.

Lowers LDL "Bad" Cholesterol
A 2011 study featured in the American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that
administration of green tea beverages or extracts
significantly lowered serum total cholesterol and
LDL "Evil Emperor Zurg" cholesterol
concentrations.

  • Weight Loss

A 1999 study featured in the American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that green tea
extract rich in catechins has thermogenic
properties and promotes fat oxidation beyond that
explained by the tea's caffeine content. It was
found that consuming green tea increased
thermogenesis (the body's rate of burning
calories) from 8-10 to 35-43 of daily energy
expenditure. Another study demonstrated that
exercising immediately after drinking matcha
green tea resulted in 25 more fat burning during
exercise.Both studies suggest matcha green tea
can enhance both resting metabolic rate and fat
burning - can I get an Amen?!

  • Detoxifier

Matcha is grown in the shade, which is why it is
richer in chlorophyll than other green teas.
Chlorophyll is the pigment responsible for giving
leaves their green color. The Hulk would be
proud! Chlorophyll is purported to detoxify the
body, but this has yet to be scientifically
proven. I wanted to mention it because of its
supposed ability to clear the body of toxins,
heavy metals, poisons, dioxins and hormone
disrupters.

  • Mind Improver

Matcha green tea contains up to 5 times more
L-theanine than conventional green tea.
L-theanine is an amino acid with psychoactive
properties, capable of inducing alpha wave
activity in the brain.Stress is known to induce
the brain's beta wave activity, leading to a more
agitated state. Alpha wave activity can relieve
stress, promote relaxation and even lower blood
pressure. Although matcha contains some
caffeine, the relaxing properties of L-theanine
counterbalance the "jittery" effects of caffeine.
Therefore, a cup of matcha green tea promotes
concentration and clarity of mind without
producing any of the nervous energy typically
associated with coffee.
9
  • Fiber

Matcha green tea leaves contain a high level of
easily-absorbable dietary fiber. The benefits of
dietary fiber include its ability to ease
constipation and stabilize blood sugar levels.
10
  • Improve Energy

Try a cup of matcha green tea as an afternoon
"pick-me-up" anytime you need extra focus. matcha
green tea is an ideal substitute for coffee
because it provides an energy boost without the
headaches you might get from a coffee crash.
11
  • Tips To Better Your Matcha Experience

Matcha green tea is available as a concentrated
powder and can be found at health food stores. I
recommend organic matcha, because it is produced
without any artificial fertilizers, herbicides or
pesticides. Do not add matcha green tea powder to
boiling water because it will taste "grassy."
Boil the water and let it sit for 5 minutes
before adding the tea. It might take some time
to get used to matcha's flavor. Give in to the
power of the tea!
