Consuming a cup of matcha tea every morning can do a world of good to improve your overall health. One of the great reasons matcha is so nutritious and is practically a superfood is because it has a high content of the antioxidant catechins, which is a plant compound. This can help the body tackle free radicals.
Match won't make you feel jittery like coffee. This is because it contains a whole lot of flavonoids and L-theanine, which works to increase the brain’s alpha frequency band and put you in a state of relaxation because it increases serotonin, GABA, and dopamine levels.
If you are really stressed or suffer from anxiety, high levels ofL-theanine can help you tackle those issues. A cup of matcha tea has been proven to be quite effective in treating these common problems.
Match tea has also been found to improve cognitive function and help you stay focused. This tea could be your best friend on those days when your to-do list just won't finish.
Here are some of the other health benefits you can expect to experience:
- Improvs your mood
- Helps you relax
- Gives your energy a boost
- Helps you maintain a healthy weight
