A superfood; Matcha has the natural ability to protect from both Type-1 and Type-2 diabetes.

The EGCG in Matcha doesn’t allow the vascular muscle cells to soften (the softening is caused by blood glucose levels). It also reduces bad cholesterol level (LDL). Diabetics are prone to kidney disease and Matcha can protect you from potential kidney and liver disease without affecting your blood glucose level.

Matcha Tea Weight Loss

Being overweight is even more dangerous for diabetics (especially those with type-2 diabetes) than non-diabetics. The EGCG in Matcha reduces the fatty degeneration of the pancreas, inhibiting weight gain. It hinders the creation of PTP1B (tyrosine phosphatase), which is related to diabetes and obesity.

How Matcha Helps Towards Diabetes Prevention and Care

Extensive research has been conducted on the right amount of green tea one should take to ward off Type-2 diabetes and it has been concluded that drinking 2 cups of green tea a day is ideal for this purpose.

Whether you are suffering from diabetes or are at risk of developing it, drinking 2-3 cups of Matcha tea every day can keep it at bay and promote your overall wellbeing.

Research published in the Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition stated that regular intake of green tea is associated with reduced levels of BMI (body mass index), triglycerides levels, LDL cholesterol and fasting glucose.

Matcha green tea inhibits fat deposit around the organs and the abdominal area. It has a positive impact on all metabolic problems which lead to Type-2 diabetes.

Matcha's ability to help keep the body weight in check, improve insulin sensitivity and reduce fat storage in the body make it a great natural aid to prevent and fight diabetes.

Remember that Matcha is far more powerful and effective than regular green tea when it comes to preventing diseases and improving overall health. Also keep in mind the fact that it’s the highest-rated antioxidant-rich food in the world, which makes it all the more effective in the treatment and prevention of diabetes.
