As the Western world rotates between health food trends every season, there seems to be one trend that has planted its roots in our coffee shops and homes and is growing in popularity at a spectacular rate. The bright green drink is also known as matcha has made its way into the hearts of both tea and coffee aficionados alike and for a good reason. The creamy texture of matcha along with its smooth sweetness of slightly earthy notes can please the taste palette of virtually anyone.

 

While its amazing taste is a good enough reason to make matcha the drink of your choice, there are many benefits that this green powdered drink offers as a cherry on top of its deliciousness. We decided to explore the ten reasons that making matcha your go-to drink can benefit your mind, body, and spirit.

 

Reasons Matcha Should Become a Staple in Your Life

 

  1. Energy Powerhouse Without the Crash

Matcha is rich in two components: Caffeine and L-theanine. While you may be familiar with the former, the latter is what makes matcha a special energy drink. When L-theanine is absorbed into the bloodstream, it promotes dopamine and serotonin production, resulting in feelings of relaxation and calm. Combined with caffeine, L-theanine acts as a buffer for the release of caffeine, causing caffeine to absorb more slowly and controlled into your body. The result of this combination is increased focus and energy without the caffeine jitters that typically accompany heavily caffeinated drinks such as coffee.

 

  1. Promotes Weight Loss 

Matcha has been proven to aid in weight loss due to its high catechin content. Green tea catechins can increase the body’s natural calorie-burning from a daily average of 10% upwards to 35%, making it an ideal drink choice for those looking to reduce their daily calories.

 

  1. Improves Oral Health

Matcha may not be the obvious choice for maintaining oral health and it will certainly not replace your toothpaste, but it does have the ability to support oral health by inhibiting and killing bacteria that are responsible for bad breath and gum disease. Catechins found in green tea have antibacterial properties. So, say goodbye to coffee breath and hello to fresh matcha breath!

 

  1. Anti-Cancer Properties

Matcha is filled with antioxidants and is considered to be an antioxidant powerhouse, which has spectacular benefits on your overall health, but also, makes matcha the ideal drink for cancer prevention. Matcha is high in EGCG, a flavonoid that is a powerful antioxidant, which works against free radicals that damage the healthy cells in your body that can potentially lead to cancerous cell growth. EGCG has been proven to inhibit the growth of several tumors in breast, colon, and stomach cancer among others.

 

  1. Reduces Stress

It is no surprise that our daily lives are filled with stress and controlling it is becoming increasingly difficult. Matcha and its high concentration of amino acid L-theanine make it the perfect choice to promote calmness and focus without drowsiness. Matcha reduces stress and promotes the feeling of relaxation and content.

 

  1. Improves Heart Health

Matcha’s EGCG promotes heart health by enhancing the lining of blood vessels and reducing bad cholesterol levels. This can have beneficial effects on blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

 

 

If the aesthetically pleasing look and delicious flavor of matcha were not enough to convince you to swap out your daily cup of coffee for a healthier and tastier alternative, hopefully, the six reasons above will do the trick!
