Do you want to improve your energy levels without the nervous energy that coffee brings?  Then Matcha Green Tea might be for you!
This tea has been used for hundreds of years by Asian monks to enable them to remain calm yet alert while meditating.  Lately it has seen a rise in popularity over this side of the world, due to its amazing health benefits.    

A recent study found that Matcha improves physical endurance by 24%.  Making it ideal to drink before a workout, or just to help give you an energy boost throughout your day.

Check out some of the benefits of Matcha Green Tea below:

Energy  & mood booster

All green tea contains caffeine but Matcha is different as the caffeine is released slowly into the body.  This means you don’t get that horrible energy crash - it gives you a nice sustained energy boost.

This clean energy boost from Matcha is also due to the combination of nutrients, such as the amino acid L-Theanine. L-Theanine also promotes the production of dopamine and serotonin, which helps improve mood, memory and concentration.

An energy boost from Matcha can last up to 6 hours, without the undesirable effects of other stimulants such as nervousness and the jitters. 

Crammed full of antioxidants

One cup of Matcha Green Tea has as many antioxidants as 10 cups of regular tea.

Antioxidants help prevent aging - younger looking skin – yes please!

Boosts metabolism and burns calories

Drinking Matcha Green Tea can increase your metabolism and help burn calories without any negative side-effects, such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure.

PH Neutral

Coffee is acidic which can lead to digestive issues, while Matcha Green Tea is almost PH neutral, which is better for the body.

Matcha Green Tea can be purchased at all good health stores.
