Theanine is an amino acid present in matcha green tea and possesses anti-anxiolytic properties, which assists in boosting alpha waves in the brain. For reference, matcha tea has only 40-50 grams of caffeine/per serving whereas a cup of regular coffee has 80-140 grams.

Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have a multitude of health benefits including cancer and cardiovascular disease prevention, improved brain function, cholesterol-lowering effects, and more. Green tea contains polyphenols, which include flavanols, flavandiols, flavonoids, and phenolic acids.

The reason I add MCT oil (I mention it in this article as well) is because it is quickly released as energy. MCT oil (derived from coconut) consists of medium-chain fatty acids that can be rapidly broken down and sent directly to the liver to be metabolized and turned into energy, making them readily available to be used as fuel and less likely to be stored as fat. Medium-chain fatty acids don’t produce an insulin spike in your bloodstream, so there’s no blood sugar roller coaster when you eat them.

Ingredients

  • A teaspoon of matcha powder
  • A teaspoon of MCT oil (I explain its benefits on the brain in this article)
  • A cup of boiled water (you can mix it with warm almond or coconut milk as well)
  • A dash of cinnamon

Blend everything together and enjoy! 

To sweeten it: you can add stevia or monk fruit (both natural sweeteners derived from plants) or blend it two dates.
