A KEY INGREDIENT: MATCHA GREEN TEA

Most people are now aware of the beneficial effects of Green Tea, but may not realise that Matcha Green Tea differs significantly from regular Green Tea because with Matcha, the whole leaf is ingested, not just infused water.

 

Matcha Green Tea is more potent due to the greater concentration of all the active ingredients of regular Green Tea, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids.

 

A much used buzzword for a long time now is “antioxidants”. Antioxidants are naturally occurring compounds that prevent body cell damage caused by toxins, referred to as free radicals. Matcha contains <140 times more antioxidants than regular Green Tea when made up ready to drink.

 

Matcha has been used in Japan for over a thousand years, initially as an aid to meditation. During long hours of meditation, the Monks would drink Matcha to help focus and maintain a state of calm. Recent studies conclude that the presence of the amino acid L-theanine promotes a state of relaxation. L-theanine is believed to also regulate the influence of caffeine.

 

Matcha is also involved in the metabolic pathways responsible for energy production in the body.

 

Matcha is one of several important active ingredients included in the unique Core Focus® formula.
