Matcha, Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s Prevention

There is a whole field of new scientific research which is highlighting the role green tea, particularly matcha green tea in helping stop the progression and help in the prevention of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

Here are some key findings from recent scientific studies relating to matcha, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s:

  • Long-term consumption of matcha has been shown to protect proteins and fats against oxidation and reduces fat deposits in the hippocampus. This reduces the age-related deterioration of the memory.  The key reason is the high concentration of antioxidant rich polyphenols found in matcha.
  • Matcha has been shown to inhibit the ROS-NO pathway in the brain of those with Parkinson’s. It is this pathway that contributes to cell death in Parkinson’s.
  • The EGCGs in matcha protect nerve cells. Studies have shown that matcha may slow down the development of Alzheimer’s.
  • Matcha helps prevent Alzheimer’s by protecting the brain from the formation of beta-amyloid plaques that are thought to cause the disease. A flavonoid in green tea called EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) can bind to beta-amyloid proteins to prevent formations, and ultimately, prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

“I am hooked on Zen Green Tea! It has a smooth taste and is not bitter at all. The matcha is high quality with its the vibrant green colour and fine texture. It is easy to prepare, and to use in food as well as drinks. Its great at helping me concentrate and stay focussed, and also keeps my hunger at bay. This is my green tea of choice…no more tea bags for me!”

“I first fell in love with Zen Green Tea as I was a pretty intense coffee drinker, but I wanted something that would give me an energy lift and help my concentration in the afternoon but without the caffeine jitters and impact on my sleep. Zen Green Tea Matcha really did the trick, it gives me energy without feeling frenetic, and tastes so much fresher and less bitter than loose leaf green teas like Sencha.”

“I have always loved tea but generally have stuck to English Breakfast tea with sugar. I started to find myself craving the sugar hit each afternoon so I would have a cup of tea but then have a big slump afterwards. After a recommendation by a friend I tried Zen Green Tea and loved it instantly. I still get the energy boost but there is no slump afterwards plus it is something that I can drink all year round. I love to carry a bottle of ice tea with me to sip throughout the day and then have a warm cup of tea after dinner. My energy levels have never been better! “.
