Matcha is green tea in a concentrated powder form.

Green tea contains high levels of polyphenols, which are potent antioxidants, as well as the powerful compound Epigallocatechin gallate.

Epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG for short, is the well researched compound in green tea which has shown to offer protection against some degenerative diseases.

Green tea has shown to increase fat burning, metabolic rate, reduce bad breath and is associated with improved dental health.
