Unlike regular tea, matcha powder allows you to consume the entire leaf of the plant, resulting in an increased intake of nutrients, antioxidants and amino acids. This is why matcha contains more antioxidants than any other highly regarded foods such as as berries, leafy greens and nuts. One considerable antioxidant in matcha, EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), contains metabolism boosting properties which can be associated with weight loss. Matcha is also packed with the powerful amino acid L-Theanine. Many studies suggest that supplementing L-Theanine in your diet can promote relaxation, reduced stress, and boost concentration and alertfulness (think coffee, but without the jitters).
Consuming organic matcha is the only way to ensure that you're reaping all the health benefits, while freeing yourself of any harmful pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers that could be found in a non-organic matcha.
