What is Matcha?

Matcha is a green tea that is especially known for its health benefits. All varieties of tea come from the Camellia sinensis plant, including green tea and matcha. Matcha is made from the best hand-picked tea leaves and because of its high content of vitamins and minerals, it is also a real health booster. Above all, it is rich in catechins, which support the health of your teeth. The tea plants are placed in the shade to get a higher content of catechins. In addition, matcha is mixed with water and not poured over with hot water, as is the case with other green teas. This preserves the tea's valuable nutrients and flavours.

Matcha tea also contains a very high proportion of polyphenols. These are natural ingredients found in many plant foods. They are particularly important for health because they have antioxidant properties. This means they protect your body from harmful environmental influences and oxidative stress. In addition, matcha increases your brain function and is known as a superfood.

Why is matcha tea good for your oral health?

The main reason why matcha is good for your teeth is its antibacterial effect. It contains many antioxidants and polyphenols that work against bacteria and fungi. The polyphenols in matcha tea can kill bacteria in the mouth, reducing the risk of tooth decay and other oral diseases. Due to its ingredients, green tea can prevent tooth decay and strengthen your teeth. Matcha tea can also help with gingivitis because it kills bacteria in the mouth.

In addition, matcha helps with the remineralisation of tartar. Especially the chlorophyll-containing matcha powder is very good for your oral health. Chlorophyll has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It stimulates the production of saliva, which supports the care of your teeth. Chlorophyll is the element that gives green tea and other plants their green colour. It is also a powerful detoxifying agent that helps remove both chemicals and heavy metals from your body. So matcha is great for daily detoxification.

Matcha is also an effective way to combat bad breath (halitosis). This is because the polyphenols in green tea extracts inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause bad breath. It also fights the bacteria that cause tooth decay, cares for the gums, soothes inflammation and can remineralise weak enamel. Hence, you can fight gum disease and periodontal disease. However, drinking green tea too often can stain your teeth if you don't brush your teeth properly.

So to improve your oral health, as well as your overall health, you should consume matcha regularly. Through its health benefits, you will strengthen your body and your teeth and gums. However, while drinking green tea has many benefits for a healthy mouth, it also has some side effects. For example, the polyphenols in green tea can become unstable if consumed in excess and cause undesirable reactions in the body. To prevent this, the daily tea consumption of 5 cups should not be exceeded.

Is matcha healthy?

Yes, matcha is very healthy. It contains a variety of valuable nutrients, including vitamin C, and has antibacterial properties. With its high concentration of the amino acid L-theanine, matcha is the perfect choice to promote calmness and concentration without making you tired. In addition, matcha contains a lot of EGCG, a flavonoid that acts as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals that can damage the healthy cells in your body and thus promote the growth of cancer cells. EGCG inhibits the growth of various tumours, including breast, stomach and risk of oral cancer, and reduces heart disease. In addition, matcha boosts fat burning, promotes your heart health and can curb Alzheimer's disease.

How is matcha different from regular green tea?

Matcha is green tea, but unlike regular green tea, the whole plant is used to make matcha. In conventional green tea, only the leaves of the plant are used. The plants used to make matcha are planted in the shade before harvesting. This reduces the amount of chlorophyll in the plants and gives them a greener colour. In addition, matcha contains more caffeine than regular green tea. Since all parts of the plant are used to make matcha, the concentration of these nutrients is higher. Furthermore, Matcha has less caffeine than black tea and contains more catechins.

How can you enjoy Matcha?

Matcha can be enjoyed in different ways. Drinking matcha is probably the best-known preparation of the tea. Simply pour some matcha powder into hot water and you have a delicious and healthy drink. But apart from drinking green tea, Matcha can also be enjoyed in other forms. For example, you can use matcha powder to make a dressing for salads or as an ingredient in muesli, desserts or smoothies. Another trendy drink is the Matcha Latte, which allows you to enjoy your cup of green tea in a more delicious way.

How can you integrate matcha into your daily routine to maximise the positive effects?

Matcha is very easy to integrate into your daily routine. You can simply drink it as tea or enjoy it in various other forms. It can also be used in smoothies, desserts or mueslis. This is a great way to benefit from the positive effect of green tea.

Should you drink coffee or matcha?

Coffee has a caffeine content of 100 mg of caffeine per 240 ml cup. This is significantly more caffeine than the same amount of drinking tea, which has around 40 mg. A cup of matcha tea is therefore a healthy alternative to a cup of coffee.
