Drinking OMGTea’s matcha increases fat burning, which may boost weight loss for those undertaking regular exercise.
Forget Dieting, Drink Matcha instead for aided weight loss!
New research reveals OMGTea’s Organic Matcha boosts fat burning and aids weight loss during exercise, in healthy females.
- Drinking matcha increases fat burning, which may boost weight loss for those undertaking regular exercise.
- Drinking matcha also had no adverse physiological effects such as raised heart rate or blood pressure.
INNOVATIVE new research from the University of Chichester reveals how organic matcha can significantly increase fat burning during exercise.
The findings showed that the females had higher fat burning during brisk walking with matcha green tea. It was also very interesting to note that there appeared to be no adverse physiological effects meaning that matcha is also a very healthy alternative to other weight loss products on the market.
This study carried out at the University of Chichester’s Department of Sport & Exercise Sciences indicates how drinking matcha green tea may benefit those looking to lose fat more efficiently and quickly while undertaking exercise as part of a weight loss program.
It may also offer a natural, nutritional intervention for aiding weight loss and preventing obesity by burning fat faster during regular, gentle exercise activity. Matcha green tea contain one of the highest concentrations of polyphenols and antioxidants called catechins in any commercially-grown food. EGCg, L-Theanine and natural caffeine are the active ingredient that delivers the weight loss and potential sports performance benefits.
Mark Willems, Professor in Exercise Physiology at the University of Chichester, comments:
“To be able to come out with these findings on fat oxidation and performance is just wonderful. I expect an increased interest to discover additional potential of matcha intake in the world of diet and exercise.”
Athletes using OMGTea’s matcha include England Cricketers, Ian Bell MBE, Alex Hales and Alec Stewart OBE.
OMGTea founder Katherine Swift said:
“This amazing new research is the first step in OMGTea’s mission to validate the health claims around matcha, we have more research planned and another very exciting piece which will be published in early 2017 where we have looked at the effect of matcha on breast cancer stem cells”
Katherine’s matcha journey started over 7 years ago when her mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her story is what makes OMGTea unique amongst matcha brands. Read more about our story here >>

Due to the amazing health benefits of Matcha green tea you might consider giving your child a small cup each morning.
Green tea is known to be rich in catechins which are disease-fighting nutrients that can protect you from heart disease and certain types of cancer; this is reported in many medical and scientific studies now and cited by the Harvard School of Public Health. EGCg the most powerful of these catechins is found most abundantly in Matcha green tea.
Below are listed some of the potential benefits for children who drink Matcha.
Children are at an increased risk of tooth decay, according to a 2012 study published in a well-known peer review journal *.The phytonutrient catechins in green tea, specifically epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCc), protect your child’s mouth against cavity-causing bacteria, while the sulphur components work on bad breath.
Keep Colds & Flu at Bay
The catechins in Matcha have antiviral properties that may protect your child from the flu. A study published in “The Journal of Nutrition” in 2011, explored the relationship between green tea consumption and the flu infection in a group of school children in Japan. The researchers found fewer cases of flu in children who drank one to five cups of green tea a day.
According to the American Heart Association the build-up of plaque in our arteries begins in childhood. Including Matcha tea into your child’s diet may help improve heart health.
Another Japanese study into obesity, published in 2008 found a decrease in cholesterol levels and blood pressure in a group of obese Japanese children who were given a catechin-rich drink.
You may have concerns about giving your child a drink that contains caffeine. An average cup ofMatcha contains 30 milligrams of caffeine whilst a regular coffee has 70-75milligrams. However, the caffeine in Matcha works with the L-Thenaine to give a slow release over 3 to 6 hours and as a result it is energising and calming at the same time, not at all like the caffeine effects experienced when drinking coffee. In addition it is worth noting that caffeine is commonly found in a number of foods that your child may already be consuming, including chocolate. Therefore the health benefits for children drinking Matcha in small amounts, maybe one cup a day first thing in the morning, far outweighs any negligible negatives.
