Miraculous Japanese Drink to Burn Fat, Stop Cancer, and More!
Although you have probably heard about green tea and all the health benefits it can offer you, but there is one particular type of tea, originally from Japan, that is head and shoulders above every other type of drink on the planet. This type of tea is a special powdered type of green tea that is used in many traditional Japanese ceremonies, but in addition to that, it can fight cancer, burn fat, and improve your sports performance. What type of tea can do all this and more? Matcha green tea.
The secret behind this tea’s super power is in its polyphenol compounds. Matcha green tea contains a particular type of antioxidant called catechins, which provides these almost unbelievable health benefits for people who drink it regularly.
Keep reading and find out the top 10 health benefits you can gain from drinking just a cup or two of matcha green tea every day.
1. Lowers Cholesterol
Matcha green tea will lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels in the blood, while increasing the good (HDL) levels. This will prevent heart disease and stroke.
2. Powerful Detox Effect
Matcha tea contains chlorophyll, which is a super detoxifying agent and will remove heavy metals from the body as well. Imagine detoxing your body every day, rather than doing those three or seven day detox programs. All it takes is one or two cups every day.
3. Improves Exercise Performance
Because matcha green tea contains the highest level of catechins of any food, it’s safe to assume that drinking this type of tea can have terrific benefits in the area of workout recovery time. Basic and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology published a study that evaluated the potential effect that matcha green tea had on mice who were afflicted with chronic fatigue syndrome. These mice were given extracts from matcha green tea, and then were forced to swim for 6 minutes each day for a 15 day period. After this intense activity, scientists found that all of the mice had significant increases in biochemical markers for cell death.
This means that matcha green tea can help speed the recovery in athletes who do high intensity workouts, and it can also reverse cellular damage.
