Matcha is gaining popularity because of its high antioxidant content. It can boost your metabolism, detoxify your body, calm the mind, enhance your mood, and lower cholesterol. It is found that matcha contains up to 137 times more antioxidants than a low-grade variety of green tea and up to 3 times more antioxidants than other high-quality teas.
It’s known as the ultimate anti-aging beverage, and it’s one of the most consumed drinks in the world.
As a fat-burner and cancer-fighter, matcha leaves other teas in its dust. In fact, numerous studies have shown that certain chemical compounds in it may help induce cancer cell death, neutralize harmful free radicals and enhance your body’s natural detoxification systems.
The secret behind matcha’s super strength is found in its polyphenol compounds called catechins, which are a type of antioxidant found in superfoods like green tea, cocoa and apples.
Potential benefits range from improved heart health to lower blood sugar levels, increased weight loss and beyond.
