Fight Inflammation w/ Matcha | PANATEA Blog

Had enough antioxidants today? The antioxidants abundant in PANATEA matcha - specifically those called catechins - are known to help combat inflammation, which can lead to some serious health conditions.

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to physical injury and infection. But chronic inflammation and pain, like migraines, back pain, and joint pain, disrupts muscle signals and triggers premature aging. Plus, many major diseases, like cancer, arthritis, and diabetes, have been linked to chronic inflammation.

Numerous scientific studies show that the EGCG catechin, or epigallocatechin gallate, and polyphenols in green tea have anti-inflammatory power. Research indicates that green tea consumption reduces stomach inflammation, forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, inflammation of the liver, and inflammatory diseases such as arthritis – to name just a few.

Think you can get the same anti-inflammatory benefits with any tea? Nope. Green tea is the hands-down winner compared to black and oolong. Studies have found that the higher catechin content in green tea makes all the difference when it comes to preventing inflammation. Need we remind you that matcha has 137 times the catechin concentration of the average green tea? Didn’t think so!
