Green Tea for Intelligence and Relaxed Awareness

Studies in Japan found that polyphenols in green tea can boost the availability of dopamine naturally. Dopamine is an organic compound that is crucial to creating positive mood states.
Green tea improves memory and cognition
Most people experience some decline in memory as they get older. Brain cells become damaged because of free radicals. Antioxidants- including the green tea polyphenol EGCG- are a great way to protect brain cells from free radical attacks and improve memory and cognition. Studies at the Science University of Tokyo have shown EGCG is very effective.
Several recent studies in Japan have suggested that tea is beneficial for reducing the risk of dementia, particularly improving cognitive function and improving working memory.
Matcha contains high amounts of L-theanines- a unique set of natural amino acids found in shade-grown green teas such as matcha and gyokuro. L-theanines have been shown to reduce mental and physical stress, improve cognition and boost mood in a synergistic manner with caffeine.
It is very important to buy fresh high-quality green tea
Higher quality tea will retain more antioxidants and health benefits.
In Japan, the best teas come from the first harvest in spring. First-harvest teas are stored in a cold room under optimum conditions so you can purchase fresh, high-quality tea all year round.
First harvest teas taste better also!
