Lets break the formula down into each ingredient component, and see their advantages:
Matcha: A speciality green tea made from stone ground whole dried tea leaves, and richer in antioxidants than any other tea. Its bright green colour comes from its high chlorophyll levels which makes it an excellent detoxifier. Rich in polyphenol compounds called catechins, a type of that helps to prevent ageing and chronic diseases. Helps the bodys defence in the fight against infection, and the effects of free radicals caused by chemicals such as alcohol and tobacco smoke, environmental pollutants, UV rays and radiation; all of which are immune suppressors and can lead to cell and DNA damage.
Matcha may also help to protect the health of your liver which plays a vital part in flushing out toxins and processing nutrients in the body. Scientific analysis of 15 studies showed drinking green tea to be a protective factor associated with reduced risk of liver disease.
Matcha naturally contains caffeine and is also deemed to be a natural energy booster helping us to feel alert, additionally Matcha also contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that is said to promote memory, calm and relaxation.
Turmeric: A culinary spice that has been used for centuries in Indian and Chinese natural medicine for its natural anti-inflammatory properties. It is widely recognised by health professionals as a well-founded support for overall health and digestion. The main active ingredient is the phenol, curcumin, which is a potent antioxidant. Studies show curcumin be beneficial to joints, counteracting the negative effects of chronic inflammation, and the conditions associated with it such as arthritis.
Black Pepper: It contains a bioactive compound called piperine. Piperine enhances the absorption of curcumin. The addition of this ingredient improves bioavailability making a substantially more effective supplement.
Ginger: This popular ingredient belongs to the same botanical family as turmeric, sharing many of its nutritional properties and antioxidant capabilities. It is also known to contain gingerol which is responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects which can reduce oxidative stress in the body. Just like turmeric, ginger has been deemed helpful in the treatment of osteoarthritis, with studies in people showing reductions in pain and disability.
There is also some truth to the old wives tale that ginger helps digestion. It can be used calm nausea. Studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of ginger in the prevention of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy and chemotherapy.
Promisingly early-stage research shows ginger might also help to lower blood sugar levels and has potentially antidiabetic properties, but further studies are needed. Given that oxidation and inflammation are believed to play a major role in ageing, consuming a daily supplement with such antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects may help delay ageing and fight agerelated chronic diseases which could aid longevity, and healthy ageing.
