If so, you’re not alone – 83% of adults in America drink the merky brown brew, making it the mainstream morning beverage of choice.
It’s remarkable how people choose coffee time and time again, even after experiencing the rush of caffeine with the jitters, headaches, and timely energy crash. Sure the quick energy is great, but the side effects? Eh, not so much.
I’m here to tell you that there’s a better way to start off your day. There’s a good green product that naturally contains the perfect dose of caffeine and leaves you physically and mentally, healthier and happier.
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Tenzo's Matcha Green Tea - “The Anti-Coffee”.
Matcha green tea is amazing if you are looking for a clean, calm and focused energy boost. Matcha green tea naturally contains 70 mg of caffeine per serving (more caffeine than a shot of espresso) and instead of the jitters and headaches, Matcha’s energy buzz has a calming effect and is longer lasting. The caffeine in Matcha green tea is slowly released over 4-6 hours thanks to our friend, the rare amino acid “L-Theanine”. L-theanine works with the caffeine to create an “alert calm” due to its ability to induce relaxation without drowsiness. The result is an improved ability to concentrate, focus and stay in a good mood.
The caffeine in coffee triggers the “fight or flight” response in your body and increases the production of dangerous stress hormones, like cortisol. Matcha green tea is anti-cortisol, it reduces stress and helps to stabilize blood sugar. As a result it increases both physical and mental endurance, protects the body against the harmful effects of stress and helps to keep us in a positive mood. Not only does making matcha green tea help us slow down, but when coupled with meditation we have found it easier to get into that zen state, live in the moment, and live with mental clarity.
One cup of matcha green tea has 10 times the antioxidants of a regular steeped green tea and far more antioxidants than coffee. In addition, coffee doesn’t contain catechins, a powerful family of antioxidants that have been linked with anti-aging and cancer fighting properties. 1 cup of matcha green tea packs a huge antioxidant punch which helps protect the body from things like heart disease, and cancer while fighting off the viruses and bacteria that make you sick.
Coffee has a pH score of 5 or below which makes it highly acidic. Consuming coffee can cause an excessive production of gastric acids which leads to various kinds of digestive discomfort. Some of the problems that coffee drinkers experience include indigestion, heartburn and imbalance inside the gut.
Freshly brewed matcha green tea is neutral in pH and contains a high level of easily absorbable dietary fiber. Fiber promotes intestinal regularity and a healthy digestive system, while helps keep blood sugar levels steady and helps to control hunger by promoting a feelings of fullness.
Matcha green tea knows the secret combination to pick the lock on your fat cells and drain them away. The catechin antioxidants work together with caffeine to naturally boost your metabolism and increase the amount of calories you burn on a daily basis. Jillian Tuchman, a dietitian and nutritionist for Aloha supplements claims "Drinking coffee plays with your blood sugar and can lead to weight gain in some cases. It's smart to make the switch to matcha green tea from your morning coffee”.
For best results it is recommended to consume 2-3 glasses of Tenzo's Matcha Green Tea per day.
