Matcha Base Powder 150g
Matcha comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant which is the same plant as green and black tea. Matcha enhances cognitive function, memory and is protective against oxidative stress and cellular damage.
Matcha contains a number of phytochemicals including caffeine, L-theanine, and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which have powerful antioxidant properties, enhance mood and cognitive processes. Caffeine enhances alertness and arousal to enhance cognitive performance. L-theanine promotes calm, relaxation and reduces tension and anxiety. L-theanine counteracts the jittery side-effects of caffeine, to provide a state of calm, focus and mental clarity without the nervous system overstimulation of caffeine.
EGCG is a potent antioxidant with strong health-promoting properties. It is widely studied and has a potent free-radical neutralising effect, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, anti-viral and is neuroprotective to the brain.
