Matcha is unique in that it provides L-Theanine, which works in synergy with the natural caffeine in the green tea and has been used by the Buddhist community to promote concentration and mood enhancement. Matcha helps to sustain clarity and concentration for up to 4 hours without the dip that may be experienced by drinking many other stimulating drinks.
Matcha has 6 times more amino-acids than most other black and green teas and is packed with chlorophyll, a strong detoxifier. In addition to its antioxidating properties, green tea is also thought to have a positive effect on antioxidant and detoxifying enzyme activity such as glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase, glutathione S-transferase, catalase and quinone reductase in the small intestine, liver and lungs. Experimental results have also demonstrated that by interfering with nitrosamines and disrupting oestrogen’s interaction with their receptors, the properties of green teas – and particularly matcha green tea – may well have many interesting health benefits.
They are thought to increase the antioxidant enzyme activity and detoxification enzymes glutathione peroxidise, glutathione reductase, glutathione S-transferase, catalase and quinone reductase in the small intestine, liver and lungs.
