Matcha green tea can increase your body's natural rate of burning calories by nearly 400%
The secret to Matcha green tea weight loss is thermogenesis, which is your body's rate of burning calories, and it's level of polyphenol compounds called catechins. Thermogenesis is when your body temperature raises, such as during exercise, which increases your metabolism. When this increase occurs, your body breaks down food faster and burns through your body's stored fat and sugars at a very high right. Your body's regular thermogenesis is 8-10%, however, consuming Matcha boosts your thermogenesis rate to an impressive rate of 35-40%. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition conducted a study comparing the effects of catechin levels in tea. They divided a group of 35 Japanese men with the same BMI and waist size in two; one group were given a bottle of tea containing 690mg of catechins and the other group were given a bottle containing 22mg of catechins. They discovered that the men who consumed the tea with 690mg of catechins had significantly lower BMI, body weight and waste size compared to the group that consumed 22mg of catechins (over a 12 week period). The conclusion was straight forward, consuming 690mg of catechins for 12 weeks enabled the men to lose weight. On average Matcha contains 137x more catechins than regular green tea, making it a great weight loss aid.
