Hello Matcha family!
Today I am going to answer you an important question. Why should you avoid coffee and drink Matcha instead?
Matcha is a natural fat burner. Several studies found that Matcha enhances the fat break down or fat burn rate. That means you will lose weight faster when drinking Matcha. Why is that? It is because of the caffeine/theine in the green tea leaves. Some of you might ask now: "Ok why not drinking coffee then? It contains a lot more caffeine!" And that is right. However, ...
Coffee is effective for a very short time compared to Matcha. We all know the morning flash after your first cup of coffee. The caffeine is released into your body and you wake up. The effect of coffee is strong, but it lasts only for 2-3 hours and during that time there is a sudden and strong energy drop. It is like a rollercoaster for your brain. What do we need then? Right... More coffee. And that is why coffee is addictive. We even get withdrawal symptoms like fatigue and morning nausea when drinking a lot of coffee. The effect of Matcha on the other hand stays significantly longer and is much more balanced.
The L-Theanine in Matcha covers the effect of caffeine. L-Theanine is known to have a stress reducing effect on the human mind. Drinking Matcha you will feel energized but not nervous or twitchy like when drinking too much coffee. And the energizing effect will stay a lot longer, and so will the enhanced fat burn rate.
I give you the strong advice to try it out and stay one or two weeks without coffee. It is worth it. You will find that you are more energized over the day and feel a lot more balanced and simply better.
