How a Daily Cup of Matcha Tea Can Improve Your Health

January 21, 2016

You have many choices of beverages to drink each day, yet many of them, such as soda, don’t give your body any nutrition and instead add unhealthy ingredients to your diet. But if you have a cup or few of Matcha tea instead, you’ll actually give your body healthy nutrients with every cup! It’s easy to enjoy every sip of this delicious tea, while finding comfort in the fact that it helps your body in a variety of ways.

What’s In Your Cup of Matcha?

Ujido Matcha tea has a significantly higher antioxidant value than many healthy foods, including pomegranates, dark chocolate and gojiberries. As you may already know, antioxidants can help your body ward off free radicals – this is a good thing since these are molecules that can lead to various diseases and aging in the body. This delicious tea also gives you health-boosting protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, chlorophyll, the amino acid L-Theanine and antioxidant EGCG polyphenols.

What is equally important is what is not in your cup of quality Match tea, unless you add it. Your relaxing sips won’t add fat, sugar, sodium or any significant number of calories to your body. You also get to skip harmful additives found in many bottled juices, sodas and other drinks for sale, which include artificial coloring.

How Can This Drink Improve Your Health?

Well, we already mentioned the free radical-fighting ability of Matcha tea’s antioxidants. On top of that, this tea has many more benefits to your health (as if the antioxidants weren’t enough!). The L-Theanine in this awesome drink has been shown to have a positive effect on stress levels, anxiety, mood and focus. This makes it the perfect drink for relaxing or concentrating. Also, the chlorophyll this tea contains is thought to cleanse toxins from the body.

Due to its various healthy ingredients, Matcha is also associated with boosting your metabolism and helping your body burn more fat while exercising, which can help you stay fit. This tea may also reduce your cholesterol and high blood pressure levels, aid your immune system and control blood sugar ups and downs. These are a lot of health benefits from an enjoyable beverage! And the composition of Matcha tea makes it so you don’t feel jittery like you can with coffee.

As you can see, it’s easy to feel good about your beverage choice when you reach for a cup of Matcha tea – especially if you choose it over drinks loaded with sugar, calories and additives that take away from your nutrition instead of improving it. So enjoy a cup each day for its relaxing nature and its many health benefits.
