Green Matcha tea is good for heart and blood vessels. Kotobuki Matcha reduces the risk of cardiovascular problems and neuro-degenerative diseases.

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 in Matcha have a positive effect on blood vessels. The catechins combat atherosclerosis. The polyphenols in Matcha protect the heart muscle and increase the ability to contract. This means Matcha can offer protection to the heart, particularly in case of heart surgery. The antioxidant and anti-aptotic properties of the EGCGs in Matcha strengthen and support a good heart function. Matcha green tea helps with fat metabolism disorders and thus reduces the risk of atherosclerosis. Taking superfood Matcha for 3 weeks also lowers the creatinine concentration in the blood, thus increasing (good) HDL-cholesterol.

Matcha and science: health and blood vessels

L-Theanine in tea stimulates the blood vessels and reduces the risk of cardiovascular problems.  14
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
Matcha protects against cardiovascular risks, cancer and neurodegenerative illnesses and helps you to lose weight. 40
Matcha and Rooibos inhibit vascular constriction and high blood pressure.  58
Blood vessel constricting enzymes (ACE) are  inhibited by the polyphenols in tea.  78
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
Taking Matcha already results in a better blood flow in case of ischemia reperfusion injury of the liver. 96
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
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
Matcha reduces the amyloid alpha plasma serum, a cardiovascular risk factor with the metabolic syndrome. 163
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
Matcha protects against myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury, probably because certain enzymes are sensitive for the catechins in the tea. 191
Drinking Matcha helps to stop coronary atherosclerosis.  200
Consuming Matcha for 3 weeks lowers the creatinine concentration in the blood and increases the (good) HDL-cholesterol.  214
Matcha helps with fat metabolism disorders and thus reduces the risk of atherosclerosis. Matcha reduces the total cholesterol level and (bad) LDL-cholesterol.  215
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
Matcha does not affect the folic acid concentrations in human blood values. 218
The catechins in Matcha have a positive effect on  blood vessels. 223
Matcha has a positive effect on body composition and visceral fat (fat around the organs) in particular. Organ and abdominal fat is often a sign of metabolic problems, resulting in cardiovascular risk and type II diabetes. The positive effect of Matcha is strengthened by physical exercise. 228
The catechins in Matcha combat atherosclerosis: the EGCGs reduce the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. 232
Matcha may reduce high blood pressure and the risk of cerebral infarction. Regular consumption of Matcha also offers a certain level of protection against prostate and breast cancer. Matcha also reduces the risk of atherosclerosis, thus reducing the cardiovascular risk and the chances of cerebral infarction. 248
Matcha has an anti-oxidant and rejuvenating effect and can thus help to improve the (age-related diminished) oxygen supply to the heart. 254
The polyphenols in Matcha protect the heart muscle and increase the ability to contract.  267
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
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
Already after five weeks of taking Matcha, LDL-cholesterol is reduced and the vascular function improved.  300
