I drank matcha tea for 1 month and you won’t believe what happened.
When it comes to health and happiness, one of the major factors effecting us all is stress. It’s been linked to a multitude of health issues including low energy, high blood pressure and obseity. Ever notice when you’re really stressed, you tend to crave comfort foods that are high in fat or sugar? “When people are stressed, they have a tendancy to eat inapproprietly” noted Bonnie Taub-Dix, RD, of New York City, a weight-loss expert spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. “This often causes them to gain weight, causing even more stress. You wind up causing exactly what you’re trying to alleviate.”
Fortunately, a new scientific breakthrough is helping put an end to our stressful lives and helping us get back in shape both physically and mentally. According to a study published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, showed that high concentrations of L-theanine and catechins found exclusively in matcha green tea, can reduce stress while increasing the bodies natural ability to burn fat and boost metabolism by up to 40%.
After researching matcha and how it’s made, we quickly discovered that not all matcha is created equally. The majority of matcha you find online and in retail stores is from china, non-organic and grown under poor conditions using pestisides, YUCK! They contain little to no L-theanine, catechins, or nutritional value! High quality, organic matcha is grown exclusively in Japan and is normally very expensive (some are upwards of $30 per ounce!). That’s when we discovered the company ‘Ideal Matcha‘ that’s been creating waves on social media and in the news with their high quality, authentic Japanese matcha tea that comes with a ridiculously low price tag and is PACKED with L-theanine, catechins and 10x the antioxidants of green tea.
We ordered a 1 month supply to put their matcha to the test and see what everyone was talking about!
On their website they outline the main benefits are increased energy, stress relief and increased metabolism. And honestly, they ticked all 3! The matcha arrived just 48 hours after placing my order. It came in powdered form, densely packed in a re-sealable air tight bag designed to keep it fresh. I was concerned that like most powders, it wouldn’t mix well but boy was I wrong! I open the bag, added a scoup to my water, and within 1 minute I was consuming my first ever matcha green tea. And despite the ominous looking green color, the matcha tasted amazing!
After 10-15 minutes I began to feel a calming sensation come across my body. At the same time, I felt alert, energized and motivated but without the jitters or crash you get from coffee or energy drinks. A unique feeling you’d have to experience to understand. After a week of drinking Ideal Matcha, I was sleeping better than ever and felt more refreshed throughout the day. My energy levels were at an all time high. I noticed a dramatic reduction in stress, increased energy levels, and I managed to drop 3 pant sizes. I was ready to take on the world.
We personally reached out to ‘Ideal Matcha‘ to share our review and get a little more insight into their company. The company’s owners told HealthRanked it’s been a busy year and that they’ve been growing like crazy. “We partnered with the best Japanese farms to provide the highest quality organic matcha. We figured our word of mouth marketing plan would take a few years at least… to our surprise it took off like a rocket! Once consumers tried our matcha tea, they couldn’t tell their friends and family fast enough. More than 50% of our customers are repeat buyers. We’re truly grateful.” – The reasons for Ideal Matcha‘s explosive growth is simple. Customers love their matcha – the way it tastes, the way it makes them feel, and the tremendous value they are getting as a 1 month supply is only $29.95.
Below are some of the main features of Ideal Matcha from their website:
Reduced Stress & Anxiety
High concentration of L-theanine boosts levels of GABA, serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals are known as neurotransmitters, and they work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, alrtness and sleep as well as appetite, energy and other cognitivive skills. Increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promotes relaxation and can help with sleep.
At the same time it’s increasing chemicals that promote feelings of calm, L-theanine also reduces levels of chemicals in the brain that are linked to stress and anxiety. This is also a way that L-theanine can protect brain cells against stress and age-related damage.
Burn Fat and Boost Metabolism
Matcha contains one of the highest concentrations of EGCG, an antioxidant shown to boost metabolism and increase natural fat burning by up to 40%. Ideal Matcha contains more than 10 times the EGCG found in regular green tea and more than 50 times the EGCG found in other teas.
All Day Energy
The caffeine in a typical cup of coffee is absorbed in just 30 minutes, leading to a habit of drinking cup after cup to maintain the same level of alartness before crashing.
In Ideal Matcha, the caffeine works in conjunction with the L-theanine to provide a steady release of energy without the jitters or the crash. After just a single cup of matcha you’ll have the alertness, concentration, focus and energy to keep you going all day long.
They even get great reviews on Amazon too:
Price aside, the superior taste, quality and benefits are what really sells you on Ideal Matcha.
The matcha is 100% USDA Organic and is shipped from Orlando, FL. It turns out, the family-owned company has been focused on direct to consumer only using their website, Amazon and specialty health stores online to sell their products (which is how they cut down on costs). “We don’t do retail, we don’t pay middle men, we distribute the product ourselves direct to consumer and we put the bulk of our money into the quality of our product. Most companies operate completely backward, with cheap product and expensive retail/marketing which is why we have so many fakes out there claming to sell premium matcha.”
