“I was amazed at how slender, radiant and ageless the Japanese women were and after talking with them I realized that they were all drinking daily this emerald green powder. I asked them what it was and they told me that Matcha is the champagne of green tea and has been used for centuries as it is known as the elixir of good health. This tea powder helps them burn fat- enabling them to both lose weight quickly after childbirth and also to maintain a healthy weight. I was simply amazed and once I tasted this sweet, smooth green tea I knew I was hooked. Matcha has helped give me energy for my hectic schedule while I noticed immediately that my weight stopped fluctuating and even if I ate badly for one day, drinking Matcha means I do not show it on the scales the next day. ” Alessandra has also gotten the other Victorias Secret Angels obsessed with Matcha especially Adriana Lima who told fans that “Matcha sped up my weight loss when I needed to get back into top shape from my recent holiday seeing my family in Brazil. ”
The Department of Nutritional Sciences within the University of Connecticut hightlighted how Matcha Green Tea within its clinical studies is proving to be a powerful agent in both weight loss and in the prevention of weight gain. In a study they conducted they fed two groups of rats a high fat diet and found that the group consuming Matcha Green Tea did not put on weight by up to 60% compared to the control group. Professor Koo stated that “it is evident from in vitro and in vivo studies that green tea or catechins inhibit the intestinal absorption of dietary lipids. Studies in vitro indicate that green tea catechins, particularly EGCG, interfere with the emulsification, digestion, and micellar solubilization of lipids, critical steps involved in the intestinal absorption of dietary fat, cholesterol, and other lipids. “
Founder of Zen Green Tea, Erin Young, has known the benefits of Matcha for a long time and her company is paving the wave for Matcha fans in Australia. “I discovered Matcha a few years ago and immediately felt the energy, concentration and weight loss this product delivered. I searched high and low for the product in Australia but could not find it anywhere- especially not the high quality powder I found in Japan. It was my passion and belief in Matcha which allowed me to form a close relationship with a tea farm in Southern Japan. It is at this farm that the process of creating Matcha has been perfected. First off the leaves are shaded before harvest to develop a higher level of nutrients. The best leaves are then hand picked, quickly steamed and placed in these huge ovens which gently bake the best leaves and then only this leaf flesh is stone ground into a fine powder and shipped directly to us. My customer base in online sales is growing rapidly as people are obsessed with our Matcha product and recommending us to all their friends. People love to subscribe and receive their Matcha in the post every month which is great for us because if they forgot to order and they run out I get inundated with emails asking for express post!!! ”
