Matcha is an antioxidant powerhouse. When you drink Matcha you are ingesting the entire green tea leaf, so you receive 100% of the tea’s health benefits. One cup of Matcha has 10 times the antioxidants of regular green tea.

Matcha is packed with cancer fighting EGCGs (epigallocatechin 3-gallate). EGCG, is the catechin with the most cancer fighting properties, and it’s only found in green tea! This powerful anti-carcinogen makes up 60% of the catechin content of Matcha. It has 3 times more EGCGs than regular green tea.

Recent clinical studies suggest that EGCG plays a crucial role in cancer prevention. Researchers believe:

  • EGCG (found only in green tea) significantly restricts tumor growth
  • Matcha catechins kill cancer cells & stop their development
  • Drinking green tea decreases women’s risk of breast cancer
