To answer the question we often get asked: “What is matcha powder good for?” we thought long and hard about how best to showcase how amazing matcha is for our physical and mental health!

The result? This simple guide on how incorporating matcha in your diet can help support your life goals! Read on to learn more about how matcha can help you reach your goal.

GOAL: Improve Performance in Study or Work

Whether you are a student or adult in the workforce, you have probably at some point in time, wished for superpowers to help you do better in your studies or work. #wefeelyou

While matcha can’t exactly grant you superpowers, it does help in indirect ways to boost your performance:

  • When it comes to a much-needed energy boost and focus when you are feeling lethargic at school or work, caffeine is usually the answer. With matcha, you not only get lots of it but also thanks to a special compound called L-theanine, it helps you avoid the familiar caffeine crash so that you can keep alert throughout the day.
  • Additionally, studies have shown that L-theanine is also useful in promoting a relaxed state of mind and reducing stress in the body.
  • Studies have also shown that a combination of the above can support your memory and ability to recall facts. #helpful!

GOAL: Reduce Stress and/or Increase Mindfulness

The amino acid L-Theanine in Matcha Tea increases the Alpha state of mind which can also be boosted by meditation. It is the brain state when we are most relaxed. Matcha is like meditation in a cup! Apart from the beneficial compounds found inside Matcha that helps to reduce anxiety and promote an energized, yet calm and focused state, the process of preparing matcha is also well-acknowledged as a perfect mindfulness routine.

For many people in their busy lives, something as simple as taking some time out of your day to prepare matcha as a daily ritual or routine is a useful way to help clear the mind of clutter, if only just for a few minutes.

Matcha is a perfect supplement to incorporate for a healthy diet for a simple reason. It is jam-packed with plenty of catechins. These are compounds that act as natural antioxidants to help our bodies combat free radicals. We are exposed to free radicals daily that damage our cells and will long term cause our health to deteriorate.

Fun fact: Compared to other superfoods commonly known to be high in antioxidants like blueberries, matcha has a wayyyy higher content of antioxidants! 16 times more than blueberries to be precise.
