Catechins, including EGCG in Matcha as superfood, green tea or as sports drink protect against cancer, obesity, atherosclerosis, diabetes and ….

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.

The catechins and most importantly the EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate) in green tea are superfoods and protect the immune system. They have an anti-allergy effect. The EGCG catechins in Matcha are responsible for the anti-cancer, anti-obesity, anti-atherosclerosis, anti-diabetes, anti-bacterial and anti-viral effect. The EGCG catechins in Matcha have an immediate positive effect on the cognitive nervous system (good against Alzheimer's). The catechins strengthen bones and muscles. The absorption of medication increases by using superfood Matcha. And Matcha affects the lipolytic enzymes in the liver and helps you lose weight (successful in the treatment of obesity).

Matcha and science: Catechins

The catechin EGCG in Matcha has a positive effect on the immune system and lowers IgE related allergies. 1
Tea catechins may bind to certain medication and thus diminish the effect of the medication. Matcha and supplements with green tea may thus diminish the effect of synthetic medication.  24
The EGCG catechins in Matcha are responsible for the anti-cancer, anti-obesity, anti-atherosclerosis, anti-diabetes, anti-bacterial and anti-viral effect.  27
The catechins in green and white tea have a positive effect on Alzheimer's and other age-related diseases, as well as cardiovascular risk and cancer.  29
Catechins and flavonoids of Matcha leaves suppress the fermentation of breaking down alcohol in the body.  32
The catechins in Matcha have an anti-allergic effect. 33
The catechin EGCG in Matcha improves the motility and the penetrative power of (pigs) semen. 36
Apart from the catechins, Matcha by-product  extracts also have an anti-viral effect in case of flu.  47
The EGCG catechins in Matcha have an immediate positive effect on the cognitive nervous system. 52
The ECGC's in Matcha stimulate healthy cells; they have a positive effect on the chances of survival, increase, viability and division of healthy cells in case of lymph node cancer. 57
The EGCG catechins in Matcha help to prevent infections (by suppressing the macrophage migration in the keratinocytes). 60
The EGCGs in Matcha slow the growth of melanomas. 63

The EGCG in Matcha regulates cell growth and cell cycle in the connective tissue cells of human skin. 102
Polymeric nanoparticles of EGCGs in Matcha have proven their anti-cancer effect and strengthen the effect of Cisplatin, which is used worldwide. 104
Contrary to resveratrol (in e.g. red grapes) the EGCGs in Matcha have a protective effect in case of  kidney toxicity (caused by Cisplatin). On a molecular level Cisplatin causes oxidative stress and infections, which are broken down by the EGCGs. 106
The EGCGs in Matcha protect against breast and prostate cancer, skin and lung cancer and cancer of the oral cavity, oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, bladder, liver and pancreas. The molecules, responsible for a change in cell structure require further examination. 112
The aluminium concentration in tea plants depends on the soil in which they were cultivated. Aluminium increases the catechin content in the tea and plays an important role in the growth of the plant. 113
The EGCGs in Matcha suppress angiogenesis (growth of new capillary blood vessels) and thus inhibit the growth of tumours. EGCGs are evident in mitochondria and cytoplasm. 114
Supplements with Matcha catechins and theanine appear to be effective in the prevention of flu infections. 117
The EGCGs in Matcha strengthen the therapeutic effect of Temozolomide, medication for brain tumours. 121
EGCGs can become toxic in the liver, if consumed in large quantities without eating (periods of fasting). One case of hepatitis in Denmark after drinking 4 to 6 cups of green tea a day over six months. 122
Increased concentration of EGCGs in the plasma after taking green tea extracts in rice. 124
Absorption of medication in the plasma improves by taking catechins.  125
The effect of EGCGs in Matcha increase with the water temperature of the tea. A high EGCG ratio also has a higher effect on IgA-production. 130
The EGCGs in Matcha stimulate binding proteins in the glucose mechanism. 133
The slimming effect of Matcha catechins and caffeine may be explained by an effect on the sympathetic nervous system, an increased energy release and a higher fat burning. Possibly the appetite is curbed, lipolytic liver enzymes are stimulated and the metabolism slowed down. 134
The gallocatechins in Matcha and the curcuminoids in ginger seem very suitable to be combined separately and together with antibiotics and cancer medication.  138
The EGCGs in Matcha offer possibilities to protect the immune system. 147
By adding green tea catechins to toothpaste the gums are protected and infections are inhibited. 148
The EGCGs in Matcha mean kidney toxicity no longer needs to be fatal. 149
Matcha's positive effect on the thyroid gland is much greater than that of black tea due to the difference in catechin concentration. 152
The polyphenols in Matcha (50% EGCG) have a high anti-oxidant value and protect against radiation.  157
The auto-oxidant molecules in tea catechins are easily absorbed by the epithelial cells of the intestines.  168
The EGCGs in Matcha might possibly be used in the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and Huntington, because they bind and stabilise transthyretin tetramer structures. 169
Taking EGCGs guarantees a good heart function after an ischemia-reperfusion, possibly due to the anti-oxidant and anti-aptotic properties. This means Matcha can offer protection to the heart, particularly in case of heart surgery.  172
The catechins in green and black tea are able to break the molecular link between infection and cancer. They inhibit the cancer cells of the stomach. 173
EGCG, the main catechin in Matcha, has an anti-microbial effect on different bacterial sickness-causing micro-bodies, such as Stenotrophomonas maltophilia. 175
There is scientific proof of the positive effect of EGCG in case of rheumatism. Further pre-clinic studies are required before clinical studies on patients with joint complaints can be carried out. 176
EGCG reduces the creation of lipofuscin, an age-related pigment. Matcha can therefore also offer protection for age-related illnesses. 179
The main tea polyphenols, EGCG, cause an iron breakdown process in de neurons and thus protect the nervous system against free radicals. 183
Obese people have lower Tregs (regulating T-cells) and a lower IL-10 production than thin people. The EGCGs in Matcha improve the functionality of the Tregs and stimulate the production and the number of IL-10-cells. Matcha can thus be effectively used in the treatment of overweight people.  187
The EGCGs in Matcha regulate the effect of two molecules with a key role in the conversion of medication in the body. In addition to the anti-cancer-effect, Matcha shows good results in the treatment of breast cancer of patients who are Tamoxifen resistant.  188
Matcha protects against myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury, probably because certain enzymes are sensitive for the catechins in the tea. 191
The anti-oxidants in Matcha-catechins improve the liver function in case of liver damage.  193

Matcha helps to neutralise snake venom. The theaflavins and EGCGs protect the muscles and nerves against an irreversible neuromuscular blockage by the venom. 198
EGCGs in Matcha kill cancer cells of different types, including prostate cancer cells. The ECGCs do not have an apoptotic effect on healthy cells. 203
The EGCGs in green and black tea change the body composition, improve glucose tolerance and change the metabolism. They help to reduce the storage of fat in the body. 206
The catechins in Matcha reduce oxidative stress in patients with lung tuberculosis.  207
Tea catechins can have a positive effect on (the cannabinoid) receptors in the central nervous system. 208
Tea catechins inhibit intestinal cancer cells by slowing down the production of proteins which are responsible for metastases.  213
The EGCGs in Matcha reduce cell division and stimulate cell destruction in leiomyoma cancer (tumours of the soft muscles (heart and uterus)). 219
The EGCGs and quercetin of Matcha in skin caring products increase the protection against UV-radiation and skin aging.  220
The catechins in Matcha have a positive effect on  blood vessels. 223
Matcha has a higher nutritional value and contains more EGCGs than other green teas. Matcha reduces the glucose and triglyceride levels as well as the cholesterol and repairs kidney and liver damage in type II diabetes.  224
Drinking two cups of Matcha with extra catechins improves body composition and reduces abdominal fat. 229
The catechins in Matcha combat atherosclerosis: the EGCGs reduce the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. 232
The EGCGs in Matcha suppress the biosynthesis of prostaglandins, which affect the formation of cancer.  233
The catechins in Matcha have anti-cancer properties and seem particularly effective for prostate cancer. Good results were also achieved in lung, bladder and pancreatic cancer. However, different studies show different results; further study is therefore recommended. 239
The EGCGs in Matcha make skin cells more vital and can thus improve skin health. 249
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
EGCGs, the main component of Matcha catechins, offer protection against liver defects. 252
The EGCGs in Matcha inhibit the activation of white blood cells, making Matcha a promising anti-inflammatory substance. 253
The EGCGs in Matcha stimulate cancer cells to self-destruct. This means Matcha supports the chemotherapeutic effect (in cancer of the bile duct).  270
The EGCGs in Matcha inhibit an infection by the HIV virus. The use of EGCGs in physiological concentrates opens possibilities for alternative HIV therapies. 272
The EGCGs in Matcha help to signal an insulin shortage in young fat cells. 274
The EGCGs in Matcha have a health improving effect on weight, blood sugar level and cardiovascular risk. 276
The EGCGs in Matcha inhibit the production of new heart tissue cells, thus reducing the risk of heart hypertrophy (exceptional tissue grown). 279
