Kotobuki Matcha as a superfood, green tea or energy drink can be very beneficial to your health and diet in many ways. Food as medication.
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
A lot of studies prove the usefulness of Matcha in case of cancer, viruses, obesity, diabetes, heart and vascular diseases, ageing and general health. Matcha helps to prevent diseases and Matcha helps to get rid of diseases. Drinking Matcha green tea, rich in antioxidants, supports the immune system and improves your general health. Matcha is a superfood and has therapeutic properties; it has an anti-bacterial, antioxidant and anti-tumour effect, is anti-inflammatory, slows down ageing and helps you to lose weight. Matcha lowers cholesterol levels and repairs the liver. The EGCGs in Matcha have a health improving effect on weight, blood sugar level and cardiovascular risk.
Matcha and science: health
|Matcha has therapeutic properties; it has an anti-bacterial, antioxidant and anti-tumour-effect, is anti-inflammatory and slows down the ageing process.||7|
|Drinking Matcha, rich in anti-oxidants, improves your general health.||9|
|The EGCG catechins in Matcha are responsible for the anti-cancer, anti-obesity, anti-atherosclerosis, anti-diabetes, anti-bacterial and anti-viral effect.||27|
|L-Theanine in tea increases the life span (of the Caenorhabditis elegans (roundworm)).||28|
|Matcha has a positive physical effect on Duchenne muscular dystrophy.||38|
|Matcha protects against cardiovascular risks, cancer and neurodegenerative illnesses and helps you to lose weight.||40|
|The polyphenols in Matcha reduce the formation and differentiation of osteoclasts (cells that break down bone tissue).||46|
|The polysaccharides in tea flowers appear to be natural polymers with anti-oxidant, liver protecting and anti-cancer characteristics.||61|
|High doses of Matcha are not toxic, and reduce cholesterol and triglycerides.||79|
|The amino acid L-theanine is thought to be responsible for the taste of the Matcha. It also increases your concentration and relaxes you, in addition to the well-known cancer preventative, immune system supporting and cardiovascular properties.||80|
|Green tea flower extracts appear safe to use; They are not toxic and there is no risk of mutagenicity (birth defects in next generations).||140|
|Matcha possesses clear gene protecting properties and can be used as functional food.||151|
|The polyphenols in Matcha reduce mortality, liver disease and the production of cytokines, reactive oxygen and nitrogens which result in organ failure.||153|
|Certain white teas have comparable levels of catechins as green teas, with the same health improving properties.||154|
|EGCG reduces the creation of lipofuscin, an age-related pigment. Matcha can therefore also offer protection for age-related illnesses.||179|
|Full grown tea leaves, picked in the autumn, contain more oxalates than small, young tea leaves, picked in the spring. Patients at risk for (kidney) stones must take into account the oxalate content of green tea.||185|
|Consuming Matcha for 3 weeks lowers the creatinine concentration in the blood and increases the (good) HDL-cholesterol.||214|
|Matcha protects against swollen cells in case of ischemic injury (injury because the blood supply is cut off). Several components in the tea are responsible for this.||260|
|The EGCGs in Matcha have a health improving effect on weight, blood sugar level and cardiovascular risk.||276|
|Matcha obstructs the binding of pathogenic cells, but not the binding of healthy cells.||278|
|The EGCGs in Matcha lengthen the life span and the immunity to stress (of the Caenorhabditis elegans (roundworm)).||280|
|The survival strengthening effects of the EGCGs in Matcha on stress (in the Caenorhabditis elegans) are important in anti-ageing studies.||283|
|Daily consumption of green tea supplements (for three weeks) lowers the total cholesterol level. This study shows that green tea does not damage the liver function and does not affect cardiovascular risk (in healthy men).||285|
