Benefits of Matcha Powder

Prevents Cancer

Matcha powder is a great source of catechins called epigallocatechin gallate, or simply EGCG. Matcha’s EGCG content is found to be 137 times higher compared to that of other green tea types. EGCG is believed to have antitumor properties which help prevent certain cancers like bladder cancer.  

Mixing matcha powder in hot water gives the body the antioxidant it needs to help fight harmful free radicals, which damage cells and cause chronic diseases.  

Improves Concentration and Cognition

Matcha powder is rich in L-theanine, a kind of amino acid that is present in tea. L-theanine is known for its calming effect.

Together with L-theanine is caffeine at 35 mg for every half a teaspoon of matcha powder, making its caffeine content higher than that of green tea. This perfect combination promotes a state of relaxed alertness.  

Promotes Heart Health

Green tea has been shown in several studies to reduce levels of bad cholesterol. In another study, catechins in green tea have been found to reduce the risk of developing heart disease. Mixing matcha powder in drinks, together with a well-balanced diet, helps keep the heart healthy and protected from other diseases.
