The antioxidants from polyphenols in superfood Matcha protect against infections, cancer, HIV, radiation and ageing.

Matcha is packed with polyphenols, which are very good for you. It also contains natural caffeine and many EGCG molecules, which stop cancer.

When you drink matcha you drink the whole tea leaf, which means you absorb all the goodness.

I drink it before exercising, after exercising, I'm a real green tea junkie.

Attila Hildmann, vegan celebrity chef and bestselling author, Germany

The catechins (chiefly the EGCGs) in superfood Matcha green tea belong to the polyphenols. Polyphenols provide antioxidants, which protect the immune system. The unique composition of polyphenols make Matcha a superfood: good against cancer, HIV, heart problems, liver disease, bone loss, eye disease and caries. The polyphenols also protect the skin against UV-radiation and ageing. Matcha, as a superfood in your food or as an energy drink is also used preventatively in skin cancer.

Matcha and science: Polyphenols

The non-polymeric phenols in Matcha appear to contain most anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties. 44
The polyphenols in Matcha reduce the formation and differentiation of osteoclasts (cells that break down bone tissue). 46
Phenols and flavonoids from different medicinal plants, including Matcha, result in more anti-oxidants than the same or a higher dose of the plants separately. 49
The polyphenols in Matcha result in increased bio-activity in the intestines. 51
The polyphenols in Matcha produce a kind of anti-depressant. 65
Blood vessel constricting enzymes (ACE) are  inhibited by the polyphenols in tea.  78
The polyphenols in Matcha, combined with caffeine inhibit the formation of free radicals in the connective tissue cells of human skin. 82
Matcha extracts may have a positive effect on caries, thanks to the unique composition of the polyphenols and their enzyme inhibiting properties. 83
The polyphenols in Matcha have both an anti-oxidant and pro-oxidant role on cancer prevention: both free radicals and tumour cells are 'eaten' by the polyphenols. 100
Fish balls can be kept six days longer by adding Matcha polyphenols. 108
The effect of green tea polyphenol supplements and Tai Chi on postmenopausal women with osteoporosis: a dose of 500 mg tea a day and/or 3 hours of Tai Chi a week for 24 weeks seemed safe and had a beneficial effect on bone structure and quality of life. 132
The polyphenols in Matcha reduce mortality, liver disease and the production of cytokines, reactive oxygen and nitrogens which result in organ failure. 153
The polyphenols in Matcha protect against bone loss because they change proteins and have anti-oxidant properties.  155
Green tea extracts in skin creams, combined with other herbs with anti-oxidant polyphenols, protect the skin against sunburn and aging.  156
Green tea polyphenols reduce damage to the retina caused by ultraviolet B. This makes Matcha a suitable candidate for further study into the prevention of age-related eye diseases, such as macular degeneration.  158
Tea polyphenols can improve immunity, among others by the increase of anti-inflammatory cytokines. 174
Just like in green tea, the polyphenols in black tea have an anti-cancer effect. 180
Green tea polyphenols suppress tumour activity and angiogenesis in bladder cancer.  181
The main tea polyphenols, EGCG, cause an iron breakdown process in de neurons and thus protect the nervous system against free radicals. 183
Long-term consumption of Matcha as a rich source of anti-oxidant polyphenols protects proteins and fats against oxidation and reduces fat deposits in the hippocampus. This reduces the age-related deterioration of the memory. 196
The polyphenols in green and black tea have an inhibiting effect on breast cancer. 205
Supplements rich in polyphenols and anti-oxidants, with Matcha, pomegranate and ascorbic acid reduce oxidative stress and increase fat burning in patients with diabetes type II. This means polyphenols also decrease cardiovascular side-effects.  216
The polyphenols and polysaccharides in Matcha protect the skin. If both components are used together, their effect is strengthened. 231
Tea polyphenols have an inhibiting effect on tissue damage caused by snake venom. 240
The polyphenols in black and green tea can be used preventatively in skin cancer. 242
The polyphenols in green and black tea have an anti-cancer effect in lung cancer.  245
Matcha seems promising in treating the HIV virus. EGCGs, the main polyphenols in Matcha appear to have an effect on the quality of sperm and thus combat an HIV spread. 250
Matcha polyphenols reduce cognitive dysfunction, caused by psychological stress. 251
Black and green tea polyphenols reduce arsenic poisoning. Matcha has a stronger effect than black tea thanks to the greater number of polyphenols. 259
Green tea polyphenols inhibit testosterone production.  262
The polyphenols in green and black tea inhibit the growth of cancer cells and get the cancer cells to self-destruct (in cervical cancer).  266
The polyphenols in Matcha protect the heart muscle and increase the ability to contract.  267
The polyphenols in Matcha protect against UV radiation by interaction with the reactive oxygen of the ultraviolet radiation and by weakening the apoptosis of the mitochondria (cells which convert glucose to energy). 271
The polyphenols in green and black tea inhibit the formation of (benign and malicious) tumours in the liver. 284
Green and black tea reduce the number of cancer cells in the liver. The share of polyphenols and a non-fermentation reinforce the anti-cancer effect.  288
Matcha protects against auto-immune arthritis. The anti-inflammatory properties of the polyphenols in the tea also reduce the factors that make the immune system sick. 295
