Mind over Matcha
We've all heard of this deep green powder, but why does it make us feel that good?
Here are some of the neurochemical reasons we ♡ how a Matcha-morning makes us feel.
Hocus Focus : Matcha's highly bioavailable green tea powder is rich in L-Theanine, a precursor of the neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory. It allows for increased concentration over a longer time period.
When we sleep our brain produces theta waves, and when we're most wakeful they brain emits Alpha-you : When we sleep our brain produces theta waves, and when we're most wakeful they brain emits alpha waves. The Secret: matcha induces them too. Heightened awareness, attention to detail, and mental agility just come easier. It's chemistry.
Cool, Calm & Collected : Unlike coffee, you exhale jitter-free. Matcha naturally contains less caffeine so you'll be less worried about irritating your adrenals, sleep cycle, and hormones.
Pro Tip: We're busy and although we love enjoying the traditionally-made method when we can, on the day-to-day it's so simple to blend up in a vitamix with hot water, an MCT oil, and cocoa!
