      Matcha green tea powder has been shown to improve energy levels and overall health by boosting blood flow, immune system and hormonal activity, and cellular health [1-4]. It also enhances metabolism, which promotes stamina as well as improved weight control [2]. Furthermore, matcha contains L-Theanine, which promotes relaxation while increasing concentration [5-7].
      Enhanced energy, metabolism, cognitive function [1, 2]; Overall health [1-6]
      Green tea contains caffeine, which is well known for boosting energy, but it also contains active substances called polyphenols (antioxidants), which stimulate the growth of mitochondria (energy-producing cells) and protect cells throughout the body from free radical as well as toxin-induced damaged [1]. The stimulation of mitochondria heightens blood circulation, enhances immune activity, and improves cell activity, all of which boost energy levels. Green tea also contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is a nutrient that regulates energy balance, hormonal activity, and metabolism [1-4]. In particular, about 250-300 mg of EGCG heightens metabolism while at rest and during exercise, and this helps maintain an optimal energy balance when individuals are inactive or engaging in physical activity, but it also improves helps weight control [2]. Matcha also contains L-Theanine, which is an amino acid that targets anxiety, induces relaxation, and enhances concentration [5-10]. In particular, L-Theanine stimulates the activity of neurotransmitters that help regulate focus and attention [6-10].
