Health Benefits of Matcha

You may have seen our infographic about the health benefits of strawberries from December.  We love HealthyTOKYO’s premium organic matcha so much that we decided to create an infographic to help you better understand the health benefits of matcha plus three exclusive, new recipes featuring HealthyTOKYO’s line of matcha.

Matcha is innately Japanese and has been part of traditional Japanese life since ancient times.  Tea leaves in varying stages of maturity are stone ground to a very fine powder.  The longer the leaves are left to mature, the stronger the flavor.

Matcha is highly nutrient dense yet so low in calories at only 3 calories per 1g serving. Do you ever wonder how Japanese people have such amazing skin?  It’s all thanks to the many nutrients that are present in matcha.  Matcha contains numerous vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, vitamin E, polyphenols and catechins such as Epigallocatechin Gallate or EGCG.  All of these vitamins and antioxidants are good for your immune system on the inside and give you beautiful skin on the outside.  As matcha is a plant compound it is full of fiber which is necessary to keep your digestive system functioning at an optimum level.  Matcha also has a positive impact on your blood sugar levels.  The combination of l-theanine (an amino acid) with the 25mg caffeine in each serve of matcha prevents peaks and troughs in your blood sugar and gives you stable energy.  The l-theanine and EGCG combined also have a positive affect on your metabolism and promotes a healthy weight for your body.  Furthermore the vibrant green of good quality matcha means more chlorophyll is present.  HealthyTOKYO’s premium organic matcha has been mindfully grown in partial shade, even further increasing the chlorophyll value!  This means there is a more effective detoxifying quality.

Matcha is not only delicious and refreshing but the health benefits of matcha makes it one of the healthiest superfoods you can consume.  Matcha is great if you are trying to reach a healthy weight, get clearer and brighter skin, want to strengthen your immune system and of course, for a burst of energy that won’t send you crashing 5 minutes later.

Perhaps you’ve seen many products for sale that are labelled as ‘matcha’.  Not all matcha is the same, research is necessary when looking for the perfect matcha because there is a possibility that cheaper alternatives to Japanese matcha are grown in China.  These Chinese products may contain traces of lead, making it unsafe for children.  There is also a chance that the product isn’t high quality matcha, or that it isn’t even matcha at all!  Therefore, it is always better to exercise caution when choosing a product.  HealthyTOKYO matcha is all organically grown under the JAS symbol in Kyushu, Nishio in Aichi and Shizuoka, so you can rest assured you are consuming matcha of the highest quality and grown with the strictest measures available.  As matcha does contain caffeine and can influence blood sugar levels; pregnant women, women who are breastfeeding or people diagnosed with diabetes should always consult a physician prior to consuming matcha.

Matcha is so versatile and there are many ways you can add it to your healthy living routine.  Traditionally, it is consumed with hot water.  It’s a great mix in for yoghurt, oatmeal or ice cream sundaes.  Matcha provides a distinctly Japanese flavor and vivid color to baked goods.  It can even be enjoyed in savory dishes or as a seasoning for meat, fish or plant based proteins.  Regardless of how you consume matcha, it’ll add a burst of color and energy to your life!

We want you to enjoy the health benefits of matcha so we created 3 new recipes featuring HealthyTOKYO’s line of premium organic matcha.  These recipes will appear exclusively on HealthyTOKYO! We hope you enjoy them!
