5 benefits of drinking matcha



In a world where everyone has their favorite go-to beverages, matcha is an underrated but intensely loved option. Most people recognize it by its vibrant green color and remember it for its unique flavor, but it’s the benefits of drinking matcha that keep people coming back again and again.


What is matcha?


Matcha is a type of tea made from finely ground tea leaves. It is grown in the shade to protect it from the sun and slow down its growth, which enhances its chlorophyll content and produces the rich green color matcha is known for. After harvesting, the leaves are steamed, dried, and then ground into a fine powder.


You may have heard matcha described as a type of green tea, but matcha and green tea have some key differences that result in different benefits. Learn more about the difference between green tea and matcha here.


5 benefits of drinking matcha


There are plenty of reasons to love matcha and make it a regular part of your routine. Here are just a few of them.


1. Rich in antioxidants and other nutrients


Matcha contains a lot of biologically active compounds like antioxidants, theanine, catechins, caffeine, and chlorophyll. These compounds have a variety of health benefits. 


2. Energizes without causing jitteriness


Unlike coffee and other popular energy drinks, matcha contains an amino acid called L-theanine, which promotes relaxation and mental clarity without causing the jittery effects associated with caffeine. This unique combination of caffeine and L-theanine results in a steadier energy boost, especially during times of the day when you need to be physically active.


3. Supports detoxification


The chlorophyll in matcha does more than give the plant its vibrant green color; it also may offer some detoxification benefits. Some studies suggest that chlorophyll can support liver health and aid in detoxification processes, helping to leave you feeling rejuvenated from the inside out. 


4. Supports metabolic health and weight management


Studies have shown that the catechins found in matcha can increase metabolism and promote fat oxidation, making it a valuable ally in weight-management efforts and overall metabolic health. Most matcha products are generally low in calories and sugar, so you can rest easy knowing you’re getting the support you need without taking in ingredients you don’t.


5. Easy to prepare


Healthy foods and convenience don’t always mix, but that’s not the case with Unicity’s new Chi-Oka Matcha. All you have to do is mix a sachet of matcha powder into a glass of water and you’re good to go. Matcha is also a fun add-in to other drinks and recipes, from smoothies to oatmeal to desserts. With matcha, you don’t have to sacrifice health to get the quick boost you need.


The best-tasting matcha around: What sets Chi-Oka Matcha apart


Get the best of both worlds—amazing benefits and great taste—with Unicity’s Chi-Oka Matcha. Crafted from high-quality matcha and formulated with natural flavors and sweeteners, Chi-Oka Matcha delivers a harmonious balance of taste and nutritional value with our proprietary blends. With its delicious green apple flavor, you won’t find a better-tasting matcha anywhere.


Chi-Oka Energy Blend: Our proprietary, vibrant, plant-powered blend features naturally occurring caffeine from matcha and an additional boost from guarana. This powerful combination will leave you feeling ready to tackle your day with new energy. Matcha leaves naturally contain high amounts of chlorophyll and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Both are important plant compounds with amazing antioxidant potential.


Amino Acid Booster: While the matcha plant already contributes some L-theanine, we’ve added a bit more so you can really harness the benefits. L-theanine optimizes the energy boost from matcha by promoting calm and focus and preventing caffeine jitters, while L-carnitine contributes to metabolic function by supporting mitochondrial function. This is done by transporting fatty acids to the mitochondria for energy production.


Superfood Blend: Blueberries, grapes, and pomegranates are all considered superfoods, and for good reason. These amazing fruits each contain unique plant compounds that have potent antioxidant-like properties. Our blend of extracts supercharges the antioxidant potential of Chi-Oka Matcha for an added refresh and recharge.


B Vitamin Complex: B vitamins are essential vitamins that play an important role in the conversion of food into energy.
