On average, one serving of matcha tea is the same as 10 cups of regular green tea. That means you get 137x the number of antioxidants per cup. As would be expected, the health benefits are vast.

With its potent nutritional properties, matcha tea can boost your metabolism, detoxify your body, calm the mind, enhance your mood, and lower cholesterol. Matcha is a type of powdered green tea. It is very high in antioxidants, and has numerous health benefits for your body and brain.

Another big draw health benefit-wise is that matcha, like green tea, is loaded with antioxidants. A study, published in 2014, found the plant also had. Drinking green tea and matcha are considered healthy and safe, but people sensitive to caffeine should be aware that both contain decent amounts of the stimulant. In 2016, the World Health.

Matcha or maccha is a finely ground, bright emeraldgreen tea powder with the scientific name Camellia sinensis. It is prepared from a high-quality shade-grown leaf known as tencha. The tea bushes are sheltered to avoid the exposure of direct sunlight which reduces the pace of photosynthesis and slows down the growth of plants.

When we choose to dedicate ourselves to a healthy lifestyle, green teas become a staple. That’s because they are laden with healthy nutrients that can detoxify our whole body. One such green elixir is matcha which is becoming a frequently used buzzword due to its therapeutic properties. Because matcha is straight, stoneground tea leaves, matcha provides you with green teas powerful arsenal of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids in a way no other green tea can. In fact, to even begin to match the potency found in a single serving of matcha, you would need to drink at least ten cups of brewed green tea.

Matcha can help keep your liver healthy and functioning! One randomized control trial examining matcha green tea in those with liver disease found that it helped improve their liver enzymes, which in turn improved their overall liver function. Because matcha green tea is from high-quality leaves which are ingested, it is a more impressive source of nutrients than traditionally steeped green tea. Matcha is a type of green tea, and the benefits of traditional green tea are already well-documented on their own.

So it follows that matcha’s health halo spans from weight loss to cancer.

  • I love matcha! I’ve tried a bunch of kinds in stores but usually just prefer to order on amazon since it’s so convenient. I like MatchaDNA brand the best. The powder is really good in smoothies or protein shakes too.

  • Japanese people especially the older generation still practice drinking either matcha tea or green tea ( loose leaves). Their country has more centurions compared to other countries. Many Japanese people attribute their good health, low obesity rates and longevity to drinking green tea and healthy Japanese diet.

  • Would a cup of matcha tea (prepared with unsweetened almond milk + Xylitol) kick me out of ketosis? Thank you
    Otherwise, as always, great video. Thank you for putting it together:)

  • If you’re health conscious, please stay away from anything coming from japan whose entire land is heavily contaminated with cancer-causing-radiation since Horrible Fukushima Tsunami.

  • If you really want to reap the health benefits of matcha green tea, you have to drink it PURE. Who the hell mixes it with Gin? Obviously, such cocktails will not provide any health benefits. There should only be 2 components in your drink, matcha powder and hot water. Period.

  • Can Keto affect your health can you please do a video tell us about the supplement and mineral we need because people don’t talk about this points

  • I have two cupos a day and it has helped my fybro relapses help me sleep and with stress also my skin broke out at first but it was due to the toxins coming out of my body

  • Great video! A personal favorite matcha directly from Japan is — highly recommend! (You can use this code for 25% off: “TENZOVJ”)

  • Thanks for the great video Dr Nick, Does the Matcha green tea Costco sells in tea bags provide the kind of benefits as powdered?

  • It wasn’t actually coffee vs matcha but rather a persuasive video to try to get you to drink matcha. I prefer unbiased and then I’ll decide.

  • Sounds great but watch out for the lead content: “One independent group,, which tested teas, estimates that a cup of matcha may contain as much as 30 times more lead than a cup of green tea. Therefore, they recommend drinking no more than one cup daily, and not serving it to children.”

  • My mom doesn’t really like me drinking coffee because I’m sill young and I agree but whenever I try coffee I get a headache that may be why I don’t like it as much but anyways I went to target today with my mom and she got a coffee and I got to try their new matcha drink I didn’t really like it at first but god dang it’s good(it has pineapple juice in it to so I was wondering if that lowered the health benefits?)

  • Keto is a marketing gimmick. The only solid evidence it has is as a study developed for reducing seizures in children. Please don’t overload on fats in place of carbs. It’s not healthy long term. �� Always prioritize clean veggies in the diet. �� On another note, these are pretty great and sound facts on matcha.

  • MATCHA IS LIFE!! I Replace coffee for Matcha about a month ago. Cannot believe the benefits im experience! Imune Sistem is stronger, energy levels higher and no stress at all! Always very relaxed!! I little bit expensive in comparison to Coffee but the actual benefits are worth it!

  • Sorry but Asian and especially Japanese have been drink matcha green tea every day and they live the longest and are considered some of the healthiest people alive. I’ve been drinking matcha green tea every morning for over 20 years. So its not a buzz.

  • I love it. The green foam on top. The slightly bitter and sweet taste. The kick it gives immediately.
    Though it’s hard to find quality matcha I have succeeded to find it and now I am happy to drink it everyday.
    Never use hot boiling water, boil the water but wait just two minutes before using it for your matcha.

  • Thank you Dr. Nick, I got my order of Matcha Green Tea today in the Uk, had my first cuppa with my wife today, we love it very much, the benefits are awesome that you stated in your video, I even added a teaspoon of it to my 1 minute Keto Almond bread, the taste was great, I am looking forward to the wonderful benefits to be derived from consuming this healthy tea on the daily ✅✅✅ we’re going green…

  • I want to try match tea over coffee but I afraid my hand shaking when I working just like I have a cup of coffee in the morning. If I try match will it make my hand shaking and my heart beat fast

  • When buying matcha green tea, it is important you choose carefully only the highest quality 100% organic stone ground the traditional way ask me how to place your order today!!!!

  • I just started matcha by accident. My daughter is into anime movies and they eat a Japanese thingy made out of flour and green tea. So we got all of the ingredients but one, and we got that green tea powder and I started. I love it

  • I almost clicked off this video when I heard the computer voice but there is some really interesting and well-explained info here.

  • Drinking Matcha has actually helped my depression a lot! I’ve struggled since I was very young and I used to depend on coffee, adderall, or a combination of the two to fuel me. But stimulants are awful for your health so I had to quit coffee and get a lower dose of my medication. Now I’m a matcha gurl and my mental health has been very stable:) I love learning more about the great things it does for me

  • Matcha is a miracle for overall health. I’ve been taking it now for 2 weeks and it has made me lose weight, given me energy and helped with my constipation. You need to find a good quality Matcha though and be ready to spend a little bit more money on it. The best Matcha are made in Japan, it’s organic and observe the colour if it’s dark green that’s a good one, if it’s brownish green it’s a bad one and toxic. You want to stay away from the brownish green ones, they will make you ill. Just research before you buy it.

  • Hello everyone! Dr. Nick it’s my first time to drink matcha green tea today (1 teaspoon of matcha in a cup of water) I got panic because after an hour of consumption I got a negative reaction my face became reddish, my ears and neck and it became itchy so I took Zyrtec and a spoonful of white sugar and after half an hour I became better. I am a healthy person and I don’t have any allergies to any food and this surprise me and it scares me of course. Does anyone experience this?

  • Unfortunately, as you may know, americans are bankrupt on average, have the IQ level of a walrus, and keep following the fucking crowd like a fucking sheep. So if they can stop doing that, perhaps one day they will win. Until then, good luck.

  • Hi, Dr. Nick. I love your videos! When it comes to matcha tea, what dosage would you recommend? I found some tablets that are 150 mg each. I would rather swallow a pill instead of drinking it as tea. Would this have the same positive effects as the tea? Thanks!
