Health Benefits of Matcha
Matcha is high in antioxidants. These antioxidants help stabilize harmful free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells and cause chronic disease. When you add matcha powder to hot water to make tea, the tea contains all the nutrients from the entire leaf. It will tend to have more catechins and antioxidants than simply steeping green tea leaves in water. In fact, by one estimate, the number of certain catechins in matcha is up to 137 times greater than in other types of green tea.
Matcha can also boost brain functions such as attention spans, reaction time, and memory.
