Matcha Tea health benefits & weight loss.

Lean & Green organic Matcha green tea powder can help you with your weight loss goals.Yes! It's scientifically proven and yes! - it's still only one ingredient: 100% green tea powder.

You won’t find any supplements are laboratory made ingredients in matcha, its an ancient technique that has been shown to speed up metabolism and aid thermogenic fat burning without any side affects! A recent study found that when you consume matcha daily or before working out/exercising, matcha will help you burn 4x more calories than you would normally. This means that matcha tea powder can effect how fast your body naturally burns fat by giving it a little boost.
 
So how does it work!? Well the three magic ingredients are Caffeine, L-theanine and EGCg  
 

Caffeine 

A recent study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body’s own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expenditure. This means that even when you're not exercising (rest days are a MUST) Matcha tea is still working for you by increasing the speed your body naturally metabolizes calories. Of Course you can get your caffeine from anywhere but Matcha has a secret.  
 
You see, matcha contains around half the amount of caffeine than a typical coffee contains but the way the caffeine from matcha is released into the body is completely different from coffee. It's a slow release meaning that you get a sustained energy boost for 4-6 hours without the typical coffee crash you get when the caffeine from coffee hits your body in a matter of minutes.
 
Ever noticed that when you drink too much coffee you are going to the bathroom every five minutes? Thats a result of a heavy caffeine dump on your system. You can often become dehydrated because of this which leads to bloating, water retention and afternoon headaches.
 

 L-Theanine 

This glutamate amino acid has been shown to increase focus, a state of calm and also creates alpha brain waves pumping the reactors. Alpha waves in the brain creates a state of alertness. They’re only around when we feel awake and fresh. L-theanine triggers alpha waves. It’s why we feel focused and alert when we drink matcha. In contrast, we might feel alert when we drink coffee or take caffeine pills, but that alertness is often accompanied by unpleasant side effects, including jitteriness and is often followed by a “crash.” This simply doesn’t happen with Matcha. 
 

EGCg

Lean & Green matcha nutrient rich and contains a huge amount of antioxidants. EGCg is an antioxidant found in plant based products which has been proven to speed up your metabolism which ultimately leads to more calories burned per day!
 
So if you want to include a 100% natural, ancient health drink in fitness routine that increases your metabolism, has thermogenic fat burning properties and also keeps you feeling focused and chilled out choose Lean & Green organic Matcha tea.
