Switching Out Coffee for Matcha

Sorry Dunkin' Donuts, this day had to come eventually.

If you’re looking for a coffee alternative that ditches the caffeine slump and noticeable weight gain, matcha might be the choice for you. Although it may look like green sludge it will help improve your lifestyle and overall chance of living. Well, what are we waiting for, let’s dive right in!

What Is It And How Does It Work?

Matcha is a finely ground green tea that is used to help energize you as well as keeping you healthy. The majority of office workers in this day and age rely on energy drinks such as Monster and Red Bull, in addition to coffee, to help stay awake. By relying on matcha, you can expect next to no caffeine withdrawals, no known weight gain, and no headaches that are associated with most highly caffeinated drinks.

So, instead of relying on 5 cups of coffee in a single day, one cup of matcha can keep you focused for an entire day, leaving you energized and feeling well. This is mainly due to its high content of L-theanine that helps lower your stress levels, which helps prevent you from nodding off and staying focused for hours. Especially for writers, coffee jitters are a pain in the butt for keeping a clear and focused mind.

Matcha, Coffee, And Weight Loss

As if matcha’s stress-free benefits weren’t enough for you, it can also keep your weight controlled while drinking on a daily basis. That’s right, no unexpected pounds layering up overnight. Due to its nearly triple amount of antioxidants than in normal fruits and berries, matcha will keep you in tip-top shape even if you drink it as much as coffee, you addict.

Why should you care about any of that? I’m glad you asked. Antioxidants benefit your body in countless ways by fighting off diseases, keeping your skin healthy, and speeding up your metabolism. Matcha also contains antioxidants that are vital to burning fat and losing weight (polyphenol antioxidant and epigallocatechin gallate). One research study even proved that drinking matcha helped participants to lose an average of three pounds more than those just drinking caffeine. If you want to lose weight, matcha is the drink for you.

I know, I hate to admit it too, but coffee is sounding less and less amazing. It’s time to toss out that latte and pick up some matcha!
