Matcha and Weight Loss | Collagen MOJO

matcha green tea

Matcha has the ability to boost your immunity, control your stress and assist with weight loss all from one simple drink.

Matcha works as a fat blocker. A compound in matcha called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) has been shown to boost metabolism and stop the growth of fat cells. EGCG is an antioxidant catechin abundant in green tea.

A 2005 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that participants who drank catechin-rich green tea daily dropped almost twice as much weight in 12 weeks as participants who didn't. 

One amazing benefit of Matcha Green Tea is its ability to gently support weight loss. According to a study in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, consuming green tea increased thermogenesis, that is, the body's rate of burning calories, from 8-10% to 35-43% of daily energy expenditure. The researchers concluded that green tea may play a role in the control of body composition because of its high catechin polyphenol content and thermogenic properties.

Another study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 
demonstrated that green tea with caffeine significantly lowered body mass index (BMI), body weight and weight circumference compared to caffeine-free green tea. This is because the decaffeination process significantly reduces the amount of the flavanols and antioxidants that can assist with weight management.
