Organically Grown Japanese Matcha Green Tea Powder nonGMO
Green tea contains potent antioxidants called catechins, which
scavenge for dangerous free radicals in the body. The most powerful
catechin found in green tea is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is
believed to be a powerful anti-carcinogen.
A 2003 University of Colorado study confirmed that drinking 1 cup of
matcha green tea has 137 times the amount of antioxidant EGCG compared
to a conventional cup of green tea.
One of the locales in the world where people live the longest is

HEART DISEASE PREVENTER: LOWERS LDL "BAD" CHOLESTEROL
A 2011 study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
demonstrated that administration of green tea beverages or extracts
significantly lowered serum total cholesterol and LDL "Evil Emperor
Zurg" cholesterol concentrations.
A 1999 study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
demonstrated that green tea extract rich in catechins has thermogenic
properties and promotes fat oxidation beyond that explained by the tea's
caffeine content.It was found that consuming green tea increased
thermogenesis (the body's rate of burning calories) from 8-10% to 35-43%

ability to clear the body of toxins, heavy metals, poisons, dioxins and
Matcha green tea contains up to 5 times more L-theanine than
conventional green tea. L-theanine is an amino acid with psychoactive
properties, capable of inducing alpha wave activity in the brain.
Stress is known to induce the brain's beta wave activity, leading to a
more agitated state. Alpha wave activity can relieve stress, promote
relaxation and even lower blood pressure.

L-theanine counterbalance the "jittery" effects of caffeine. Therefore, a
cup of matcha green tea promotes concentration and clarity of mind
without producing any of the nervous energy typically associated with
Matcha green tea leaves contain a high level of easily-absorbable
dietary fiber. The benefits of dietary fiber include its ability to ease
constipation and stabilize blood sugar levels.
Try a cup of matcha green tea as an afternoon "pick-me-up" anytime
