The Benefits of Matcha

The Benefits of Matcha


Matcha is a type of powdered green tea that originated in Japan. It has a unique cultivation process, and the shade-grown tea leaves are finely ground into a vibrant green powder. Renowned for its vibrant colour, distinct taste, and myriad of health benefits, matcha has a rich history as a complement to meditation. 

The ritual of preparing and savouring matcha aligns with the essence of meditation, requiring a mindful approach and fostering a sense of calm and focus. Beyond being just a beverage; it's a holistic experience. Like matcha, meditation can bring a sense of calm and focus. While matcha does this through beneficial natural compounds like L-theanine, meditation brings this through practice. 

Whether enjoyed as a traditional tea ceremony or incorporated into your own daily rituals, at Ancient + Brave, we understand the importance of nurturing your body with the finest ingredients that nature has to offer. That's why we developed our Matcha + Collagen. It combines the perfect harmony of organic matcha paired with our signature True Collagen peptides, pure organic Lion’s Mane mushroom to dial in a clear mind and beautiful botanicals to nourish you from within. Here are just a few of the benefits to be enjoyed from drinking matcha.



Supporting skin health

The natural compound Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a type of catechin found in matcha, has been shown to have skin-protective properties. It helps to rejuvenate and firm the skin while promoting a brighter complexion. The antioxidant properties of EGCG can also assist in reducing inflammation and protecting the skin against UV damage making it the perfect pairing for collagen peptides.


Optimised antioxidant protection

Matcha is packed with antioxidants which help protect the body against free radicals and oxidative stress. These antioxidants have been associated with various health benefits, including reducing the risk of chronic diseases and promoting overall well-being.


Supporting healthy metabolism

The catechins in matcha, including EGCG, have been found to have a positive impact on metabolism, regulating blood sugar levels, supporting fat metabolism, suppressing cravings for sugary foods and promoting a feeling of satiety.



Supporting your body’s detoxification pathways

Matcha owes its vibrant green colour to its high chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll helps support our body's built-in natural detox pathways helping turn on certain enzymes involved with detoxification in the liver. Chlorophyll also aids in detoxification by binding to toxins that the liver breaks down so that they can then be expelled more efficiently from the body, potentially supporting skin health, hormone health and natural vitality. 


Anti-inflammatory powerhouse

Inflammation is now recognised to be a root cause of many chronic conditions.  Matcha has anti-inflammatory properties which allow it to quench unwanted inflammation, promoting a state of health and balance. 


Gentle caffeination without the jitters

Matcha contains the amino acid L-theanine, which has relaxing properties and promotes a sense of calmness and balance. L-theanine can counterbalance the stimulating effects of caffeine, allowing for increased focus and mental clarity while maintaining a state of relaxation.
