The high amount of antioxidants in Matcha green tea pairs up with the caffeine and together, they keep the chemicals in your bloodstream in check. Apart from caffeine, Matcha also has amino acids, protein, potassium, calcium, and vitamins A and C. Since the caffeine in Matcha boosts your metabolism, the nutrients are better absorbed into your system with its help.
The boost of caffeine that Matcha gives your body helps your body utilise more energy and oxidise fat better. The excess fat in your body is increased from 35% to 43% when you consume Matcha tea.
There’s nothing “bad” about coffee’s caffeine as such. But there’s the drawback that coffee can lead your body to a temporary “high” where you feel extremely energetic and right after the “high”, a “crash” which makes you feel tired, lethargic, irritated or even hungover.
However, you can feel the impact of this crash less if you perform a lot of physical activity within a few hours of your coffee consumption.
On the other hand, the amino acid in Matcha, known as L-Theanine, combines with the caffeine in Matcha and leads to a boosted metabolism whilst at the same time, reduces stress, relaxes the mind and body without taking away the alertness.
So if you want to stay energetic without having to go through any “crash”, it’s better to choose Matcha tea than coffee. Matcha is also a better choice than coffee if you want to calm the mind whilst staying alert.
The plethora of health benefits of Matcha contribute to this and make this green tea a great drink for any time of the day. However, it is strongly advised that you don’t take Matcha before bedtime.
