A wildly vibrant, finely ground green tea powder that was sought after by Japanese Zen Buddhist monks and Samurai warriors for its mind enhancing effects.
The Benefits of Matcha
All Day Energy without Crashing
Matcha has less caffeine than coffee yet it provides a more sustainable, longer lasting feeling of energy. How? It contains a powerful amino acid called L-theanine that isn’t found in coffee. This missing ingredient extends your energy levels while eliminating any jitters or crashes.
You’ll Feel Better
Imagine feeling more relaxed and calm. In each cup of Naked Matcha is the mood enhancing amino acid L-theanine. Discovered in 1949 by Japanese scientist, it became of immediate interest because of its ability to improve one’s mood.
Sharpen Your Concentration
For more than 800 years, Zen Buddhist monks have used matcha to help them achieve states of intense focus and heightened awareness. Matcha’s unique combination of caffeine and L-theanine are the reason for improved levels of concentration. You can use matcha to improve your learning ability, attention, and memory.
The Queen of Superfoods
If you’re looking for ways to get more antioxidants in your diet to fight disease, sickness, and to preserve your youth, matcha is the almighty Queen of superfoods! Matcha contains 5x as much antioxidants by weight as goji berries, 10x as much as a cup of green tea, and 25x more than the more popular acai berries.
Boost Your Metabolism
Alongside a proper diet and workout plan, matcha can be the perfect addition! Matcha has thermogenic properties–which mean your body will burn more calories. Also, consuming matcha has the tendency to create a sensation of fullness in your stomach which can help reduce your appetite.
