When you consume Matcha you aren’t just consuming something tasty; you’re also consuming an array of health benefits. From improving your mood and memory to fortifying your immune system and more, drinking a cup of Matcha green tea is a much better choice than drinking a cup of black coffee or a bottle of soda every day.
But the health benefit I want to focus on today is weight loss. Yes, Matcha green tea and Matcha green tea powder can even help you lose weight.
Matcha is catechin-dense, and catechins increase how much energy your body uses, especially the catechin epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Catechins are responsible for augmented weight loss by helping boost your metabolism and burn fat faster.
