CLEANSING, DETOXIFYING, VIBRANT
Looking to boost your intake of antioxidants? Choose our matcha, it holds the crown. Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity tests have shown high quality matcha weighing in1600 units per gram. To give context, 1 gram servings of goji berries, dark chocolate, pecans, walnuts, pomegranates, blueberries, and the next 5 top contenders combined still would not account for the antioxidants in 1 Botanik matcha serving.
The majority of the antioxidant contents are called catechin polyphenols, and the most abundant polyphenol is epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG. EGCG has shown in studies to protect against formation of cancer cells, increase metabolism, prevent heart disease, reduce cholesterol, protect brain cells from oxidative stress, improve liver health, regulate blood sugar, improve skin health and slow the process of aging.
Rich in Chlorophyll
Matcha is rich in chlorophyll. Some health benefits associated with chlorophyll shown in studies include, cancer prevention, weight loss, controlling body odor, relieving gas, boosting energy, radiant skin and acne treatment. Green in your glass is good!
Much of matcha's magic comes from the balance of caffeine and L-Theanine.
Our matcha carries 35mg per serving, which is about 1/3 the amount of coffee. While everyone has different tolerance levels to caffeine, most find matcha to be a gentile lift, without jittery sensations or a crash.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that softens the edge of caffeine, and provides a calm focused effect without a crash. It works by increasing both alpha brainwave activity and dopamine production in the brain. This translates to feelings of happiness, alertness, focus, and calm - many key components of mind/body wellness.
