We at Matchaletic can testify to the benefits of premium grade matcha as a supplement to our fitness regimes. Whether it be running, weights, football, hiking or a game of thrones marathon, matcha gives us fast acting and effective increases in energy and concentration.

We can say that it allows us to push ourselves further in the gym, on the road or in the mountains. Although we highlight the benefits to athletes, the same information can apply to anybody looking for enhanced health.


As we mention in our literature matcha contains significant amounts of the catechin epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG for short. EGCG is essentially a hunter destroyer. The human body is constantly being attacked by free radicals which can cause cells to mutate and become cancerous. EGCG finds these free radicals and destroys them. This is why EGCG has been touted as an extremely effective anti-carcinogen. It goes without saying therefore that the more matcha you consume the more EGCG you are getting. Normal green tea bags just don’t cut it as you only receive a fraction of the EGCG content.


Obesity is a massive problem in society and it is getting worse. Everyday another faddy and unsustainable diet comes onto the market. Green tea however has long been espoused as an effective natural fat burner however there are many out there who have never tasted it. Matcha has been shown to increase thermogenesis and the resting metabolic rate meaning that regular consumers may burn more calories simply by sitting back and having a nice drink.


Now matcha is not going to turn you into the next Einstein if you are not already however it will give you an immediate boost of cognitive function and focus. How often do you race around the day on less sleep than you require only to get to the afternoon and you feel exhausted? Sugar, carbs and coffee provide welcome but very short lived relief, eventually making you crash and leaving you feeling worse. Matcha contains an abundance of the amino acid l-theanine, which when working in synergy with the caffeine found in matcha, produces a laser beam like focus and energy without the usual jitters and crash. There is a reason zen buddhist monks have been drinking the tea for 1000 years.

Joking aside, premium grade matcha has the power to transform an average Joe’s health and outlook on life. If you are still unsure, take advantage of our free 3 sticks offer to give it a try. We are on a mission to change people’s health and well-being through the power of matcha. We will convince one person at a time if necessary, health and well-being is something we are very passionate about.
