Meet Matcha, a powerhouse of goodness that goes beyond just a tasty green tea. Let's dive into why matcha is a game-changer for your gut health and overall well-being.
It’s a gut-friendly superstar. Matcha contains catechins, known for their antimicrobial properties that support a happy and balanced gut microbiome.
Unlock the Antioxidant Power
Matcha is packed with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a potent antioxidant linked to various health benefits in green tea. Because matcha is a much more concentrated type of green tea, the antioxidant levels are correspondingly higher. Some sources suggest matcha can be over 100 times more potent than regular green tea!*
Quality over Quantity
The amount of antioxidants in matcha depends on its quality. Instead of adding matcha to every drink (and meal), keep in mind its caffeine content is also proportionally higher than green tea’s. 1/2-1 tsp of potent matcha can contain as much caffeine as a cappuccino.
The Mindful Side of Matcha
The L-theanine in matcha promotes calm alertness, as opposed to jitters sometimes caused by coffee, reducing stress and enhancing mental clarity.
