AMINO Z MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER
Matcha green tea has grown in immense popularity over the past two decades, and with good reason- it is a bonafide superfood with numerous health boosting properties. Regardless of if you are into general fitness or not, the manty benefits it has on offer for virtually every single human on this planet is astounding.
Known by its name Camellia sinensis, green tea is loaded with anti-oxidants and other health promoting nutrients. No wonder people of the orient possessed some of the longest lifespans on the planet- they were regular consumers of green and black tea.
If you’ve managed to steer clear of Matcha green tea all these years, but are now intrigued, here’s what it can do for you:
May Support Weight Loss
High on the list of Matcha green tea’s list of benefits is its role on helping support weight loss. To start, green tea powder (or extract) can help increase the rate of fat oxidation[i] during exercise, and can make your body more sensitive to insulin. What this means is that a smaller insulin release is capable of handling glucose update into cells, and the fact that more fat is burnt and used as fuel.
May Support Focus And Concentration
Focus and concentration is something that is lacking in even the best of us. If there was a way to dial it in, we could get much more accomplished. This can be made possible thanks to the presence of a conditional amino acid known as L-Theanine, which works miracles when combined with the caffeine naturally present in Matcha green tea.
This makes green tea a perfect pre-workout beverage so that you can get done what you set out to do, or even to help offset fatigue and tiredness[ii].
May Help Support Mental Health
Our mental health encompasses several aspects of our wellbeing, including emotional and psychosocial states. Matcha green tea has help keep you grounded, thanks once again to the presence of L-Theanine.
L-Theanine exerts a calming action on the brain, increasing production of the relaxatory neurotransmitter GABA. Coupled with the anti-cortisol effect it also demonstrates translates to enhanced mental well-being and stress management[iii].
Matcha green tea has numerous other benefits including supporting immune system and anti-oxidant health, where it may even help to lower the risk of several cancers. Organic Matcha green tea is best, as loose leaves which may be steeped in hot water to make a powerful beverage. Consume abundantly, but also within sensible limits.
