DID YOU KNOW? Matcha Green Tea can help to support weight loss.
According to a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, consuming green tea increased thermogenesis, (the body’s rate of burning calories) from 8-10% to 35-43% of daily energy expenditure.
So what causes this increase in thermogenesis?
Polyphenols – plant-based compound with powerful antioxidant properties.
Matcha is an excellent source of the polyphenols – and contains significantly higher levels than regular green tea, increasing its metabolism boosting and thermogenic effects in the body.
Of course, you can’t out-matcha an unhealthy diet – BUT matcha green tea in addition to a healthy diet is a great and natural way to raise your metabolism and help support weight loss.
