Wouldn't it be nice if there was a superman-type beverage that boosts your metabolism and helps you burn calories...lowers your cholesterol and blood sugar...enhances your concentration and puts you in a better mood...fights bacteria and viruses in your body...and gives you more energy?
Well, it turns out there is. And if the above benefits aren't enough for you, it also reduces your chances of getting cancer.
What is this amazing drink called?
Matcha green tea.
We've all heard about the benefits of drinking green tea. It turns out drinking Matcha green tea is the equivalent of drinking ten cups of regular green tea.
The antioxidant levels in Matcha tea are a whopping 60.5 times that of spinach. It's also rich in L-Theanine, a rare amino acid that promotes a state of relaxation in those who consume it.
Plus it contains a catechin (a type of natural phenol and antioxidant) by the name of EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) which is known to possess potent cancer-fighting properties.
A 2011 study by the American Society of Nutrition found that exercising immediately after drinking Matcha tea resulted in 25% more fat burning during exercise.
The taste? Normally something this good for you tastes bad right? But Matcha tea tastes great without adding sugar, milk or lemon to it.
