Matcha Tea: The No Buzz Booster
A recent study tested the effect of regularly taking green tea extract (GTE) and found that over 10 weeks, endurance exercise performance was boosted up to 24%.
The results indicated that GTE and matcha green tea, which contains 10 times the nutritional content of regular brewed green tea, are beneficial for improving endurance capacity and increases muscle lipid oxidation in mice.
A study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition claims that matcha green tea produces a significant increase in energy in individuals.
While some of the effects were originally attributed to the caffeine content of green tea, the researchers discovered that matcha's effect on energy goes beyond those that would be caused by the caffeine.
In fact, they found that consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expenditure.
Of critical importance is the fact that none of the research subjects reported any side effects, and no significant differences in heart rates were noticed.
