5 ''science-backed'' health benefits of Matcha

5 ''science backed'' gezondheidsvoordelen van Matcha - Spoon Moment

Because you actually drink the entire tea leaf, the taste of matcha green tea is much stronger than your "standard" infused cup of green tea. This also means you get more of the amazing health benefits!

Matcha is packed with health-promoting compounds such as catechin antioxidants, l-theanine and vitamins.

Energy - But without the crash...

Have you ever noticed that the caffeine in tea doesn't give you the same side effects as the caffeine in coffee? L-theanine is the answer to this mystery!

This unique amino acid acts as the antagonist of caffeine. It helps calm your nervous system so you still get the energy boost, but with less jitters or shakiness that people usually associate with drinking a lot of caffeine (e.g. coffee).

While all green tea contains L-theanine, the levels in matcha are unmatched. While most green teas contain 4 milligrams of L-theanine per serving, a teaspoon of matcha averages 19-40 milligrams.

Antioxidant Bomb - Even 15 times more antioxidants than blueberries.

There is a lot of talk about the benefits of antioxidants. And matcha is an antioxidant powerhouse!

Based on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) - (a way to measure the antioxidant capacity of foods), matcha contains 15 times more antioxidants than blueberries!

Antioxidants act like a cleaning crew and help rid the body of harmful free radicals. So increasing the consumption of antioxidants in matcha can provide a number of benefits, from supporting your immune system to supporting your body's natural anti-inflammatory response.
