Matcha is known for it’s ability to assist with weight loss. There are some key scientific reasons why which we have outlined below.
Matcha contains incredibly high levels of the antioxidant EGCG. This antioxidant has been linked with boosting the metabolism where in one study on average, matcha green tea increased study participants’ fat-burning capabilities by 17 percent when they engaged in exercise.
Matcha helps to block the ability of digestive enzymes to break down fat, a step necessary for fat to enter our cells. So instead of absorbing and storing fat, it passes through the body.
Matcha is rich in Chlorophyll which is a natural detoxifier. It helps to remove any accumulation of toxins and hence helps your body work more efficiently.
Matcha contains natural caffeine that will keep your energy levels up and make it easier for you to burn calories
Matcha has been linked to raising the Serotonin and Dopamine levels in the brain which are the hormones responsible for happiness and well being. By reducing your stress levels your body will stop producing high levels of Cortisol, the stress hormone associated with fat storage especially around ones midsection.
What are the other matcha health benefits?
The rich poly-phenol compounds found in matcha and other plant foods in your diet help lower the risk of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer; they also help keep your brain healthy as you age. And, plant polyphenols are often cited for their role in heart health; they fight against hardening of the arteries, known medically as “atherosclerosis,” according to a review published in the Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity journal in November 2009. Atherosclerosis causes arteries to narrow and become clogged, which may cause heart attack or stroke. Other ways polyphenols may protect your heart is by increasing good cholesterol, reducing inflammation, and improving circulation in your arteries by preventing your blood from clotting.
Furthermore, in another study published by the American Society of Clinical Nutrition, it was reported that frequent consumption of quality green tea enhances the efficiency of the human body in utilizing energy. The research showed that the daily energy expenditure rate of adults increases 35-45% with regular consumption of green tea. So matcha green tea actually can increase your body’s ability to burn energy by up to 45%!
There is a huge number of studies outlining similar findings that green tea – especially matcha – assists with weight loss and the prevention of weight gain.
