BENEFITS of CATECHINS
PREVENTION OF STROKE
Catechins, one of the active ingredients in matcha green tea, is a super potent antioxidant. Studies showed it is helpful to prevent a cerebrovascular accident such as stroke. In Japan, Ikeda et al. studied whether there is any direct relationship between stroke and blood level of catechins. Their study included 1132 patients with stroke, and their blood level of catechins were measured. It showed that the higher the level the catechins, the more beneficial in preventing stroke in non-smoker patients. Besides, matcha green tea is much healthier and safer than aspirin, which may irritate your stomach, causing inflammation and even ulcer!
IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL FOCUS AND WORK EFFICIENCY.
Matcha contains a high level of L-theanine, one of the amino acids that calm you down, relax your mood, and lower down your stress hormone cortisol level. This, in turn, reduces your chance of getting a heart attack. Matcha contains 20 mg of L-theanine, whereas regular brewed low-quality green tea contains only 4 mg.
It also improves your attention and cognitive function, thus preventing dementia or neurological-cognitive degeneration such as Parkinson’s disease.

Chen et al. 1999: Prevention of skin cancers
Nakachi et al. 2000: Cancers prevention especially lung, liver, stomach and colorectal.
Bettuzzi et al. 2006: Prevent prostate cancer.
Shimuzu et al. 2008: Prevent colorectal cancer.
The anti-cancer property of green tea was proved by multiple studies and even The New York Times in 1994 stated that "Green Tea: more than just a soothing brew!"
DETOXIFY OUR GUT
A study done by scientists in Japan showing by put using 1 ml of 1/20 concentration of green tea into 10,000 highly toxic Escherichia coli 0-157, all of E coli were died after five hours.
Another ingredient inside matcha is chlorophyll, which is responsible for the green color in flowering plants. Chlorophyll helps to detoxify your body by flushing away heavy metal and other toxins inside your body.
The cellulose content inside green tea is 52.8 times more than spinach. As a result, green tea is popular in ‘detoxify’ the fatty food you eat, help you in losing weight, and even removing acne.
