Could Matcha be one of the answers to natural weight loss?
Let’s talk more about the natural weight loss effects of matcha. Last week, we talked about matcha’s amazing fat burning effect (missed out? click here to find out!).
This week, I’ll be sharing other amazing ways matcha can help with weight loss to get you started on your matcha journey!
Daily matcha intake curbs the appetite
Amazing hunger suppressant
Matcha can help with controlling your hunger and cravings, thanks to the high natural presence of EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a catechin with many prevalent health-protective effects. EGCG helps boost the level of cholecystokinin (CCK), a gut hormone typically released in response to eating. Its also recognised as an appetite suppressant hence its best to consume matcha in between your meals.
Boosts the metabolic rate by up to 40%
We all know that our body’s metabolism tend to slow down with age, which is why it is a tad bit more difficult to lose weight as we get older – Something I’ve noticed even on myself ever since I hit my 30s and now 50s. So here’s how EGCG in Matcha can help:
- High levels of EGCG can increase the metabolic rate by as much as 40% – About 5 times greater than a regular cup of steeped tea
- The catechins and EGCG interact with other chemicals in your body to influence and increase thermogenesis (the generation of heat from your metabolism)
- These catechins can increase the thermogenesis in your body by up to 35 to 43%
Let’s boost our metabolic rate by up to 40% with Matcha green tea!
Amazing detoxifier = Higher metabolic rate!
Matcha is also known for its excellent detox properties due to the presence of chlorophyll – A pigment that cleanses the blood and helps maintain pH balance, transports oxygen to the blood, and removes carbon dioxide.
So how does detox help with weight loss?
Basically, the ‘cleaner’ your body is, the quicker it will be to convert calories into energy. Alternatively, the more toxins you have in your body, the harder it will be for you to eliminate these toxins, which often leads to things like slower metabolism.
Our 100% organic, ceremonial grade matcha filled with high EGCG and chlorophyll promotes natural weight loss for all!
Getting the right matcha for the maximum results
Matcha has been especially popular lately, considering its many health and beauty benefits. This sudden influx in demand means its especially hard to find premium matcha with high EGCG and chlorophyll.
In fact, some of the ‘matcha’ you see in stores are often highly processed – some of which are just regular ground green tea (an example of low-quality matcha). So its important to ensure you always get the right one. Here are some factors you can consider:
- Ceremonial grade matcha from Japan
- Natural bright green colour
- No bitter aftertaste
These are all signs of good quality matcha with high EGCG and chlorophyll. Unfortunately, you can only ever find out the real quality once you’ve actually tried the matcha.
The good news is, you can always shop our matcha (that ticks off all the requirements, of course) here.
