Superfood Amanprana Matcha: green tea for a healthy liver!
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
Matcha green tea protects the liver cells against damage by chemicals, against infections and against dehydration by alcohol. Superfood Matcha also has an anti-tumour effect in liver cancer. The polyphenols in Matcha reduce liver disease (apoptosis, oxidation and infections). Matcha is responsible for an increased energy release and stimulates the lipolytic enzymes in the liver, which means superfood Matcha can also be used by people who want to lose weight.
Matcha and science: Liver
|Matcha protects the liver cells against damage by chemicals and reduces the risk of hepatitis.||16|
|The carbohydrates in tea show a strong anti-tumour effect in test animals with cancer of the liver.||31|
|Catechins and flavonoids of Matcha leaves suppress the fermentation of breaking down alcohol in the body.||32|
|The anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-connective tissue forming properties of Matcha prevent ethanol poisoning of the liver.||54|
|The polysaccharides in tea flowers appear to be natural polymers with anti-oxidant, liver protecting and anti-cancer characteristics.||61|
|The triterpenoidal saponins of the roots of the Matcha plant have an inhibiting effect on dehydration by alcohol.||76|
|The polyphenols in Matcha reduce liver illness (apoptosis, oxidation and infections).||86|
|Matcha, EGCG, quercetine or caffeine increase the anti-oxidant effect of serum and liver and strengthen the membrane density. The caffeine in Matcha appears to have the biggest effect on foreign metabolic enzymes.||88|
|Taking Matcha already results in a better blood flow in case of ischemia reperfusion injury of the liver.||96|
|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|
|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|
|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|
|Green tea causes liver toxicity in dogs who were not fed, but not in dogs who were fed.||136|
|Liver toxicity by lead reduces with the use of Matcha.||145|
|The polyphenols in Matcha reduce mortality, liver disease and the production of cytokines, reactive oxygen and nitrogens which result in organ failure.||153|
|Matcha inhibits or slows down the deposit of hepatitic iron. This stops the formation of free radicals, minimising the chances of liver damage and liver fibrosis.||184|
|The anti-oxidants in Matcha-catechins improve the liver function in case of liver damage.||193|
|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|
|EGCGs, the main component of Matcha catechins, offer protection against liver defects.||252|
|Supplements with green tea extracts reduce acute liver injury thanks to their anti-inflammatory and apoptotic effect.||263|
|The polyphenols in green and black tea inhibit the formation of (benign and malicious) tumours in the liver.||284|
|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|
|Matcha helps overweight people by suppressing fat formation by regulating liver and other fatty enzymes.||287|
|A food supplement with lysine, proline, ascorbic acid and green tea extract can be a useful supplement in the prevention of acute liver poisoning by medication.||298|
