Matcha Tea Properties
Enter the drink of the Samurai...Instant Genius Matcha Tea™
Our latest exciting drink in the Limitless Life Mind range combines our proprietary Instant Genius™️ nootropic formula with the added powerful health benefits of Matcha Tea.
Matcha comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. It is the traditional Japanese style of green tea made by grinding the entire leaves into a powder, so you receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf. The Samurai learned that meditating during consumption of Matcha could restore them physically and prepare them mentally for battle.
Here are our 5 Favourite Benefits of Matcha Tea:
It is an Anti-oxidant powerhouse:
Using the testing method known as ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity), university experts have discovered that Matcha possesses an amazing twenty times more anti-oxidants than pomegranates or blueberries. The Matcha ORAC rating is a mighty 1573 units per gram, compared to pomegranates 105 units per gram or blueberries 93 units. Matcha powder has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly green tea.
It has cancer fighting properties:
Matcha is jam-packed with health-promoting compounds, including some that have been linked to cancer prevention in test-tube and animal studies. In one study, Matcha tea extract decreased tumour size and slowed the growth of breast cancer cells in rats. Matcha is especially high in epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a type of catechin that has been shown to have powerful anti-cancer properties.
It boosts brain function:
Matcha contains a more concentrated amount of caffeine than green tea, packing in 35 mg of natural caffeine per half teaspoon (about 1 gram) of Matcha powder. Caffeine leads to improvements in brain function, citing faster reaction times, increased attention and enhanced memory with Matcha also containing the compound L-theanine which alters the negative effects of caffeine. When combined with our Instant Genius™️ formula it provides a powerful cognitive boost.
It protects your heart:
Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for an estimated one-third of all deaths in people over the age of 35. Some studies have shown that drinking Matcha tea, may help protect against heart disease. Matcha tea has been shown to reduce levels of total and “bad” LDL cholesterol, as well as triglycerides. It also helps prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, another factor that may protect against heart disease.
It contributes to weight loss:
Matcha tea provides a natural boost in energy and vitality. However, it is low in calories – 1 g contains about 3 calories. Offering you the necessary physical energy and mental stamina to maintain a calorie deficit. The high level of EGCG in Matcha may boost your metabolism and also contribute to thermogenesis both contributing significantly to weight loss.
Whisk together 100ml of almost boiling water with 3 grams 91-2 teaspoons) of matcha powder. When it looks frothy and thoroughly mixed, it’s ready to drink. Add a bit more water if it’s too strong for your taste.
