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 >>

There is a lot more to OMGTEA’s Organic Matcha than just the lovely mild green tea taste and its vibrant emerald green colour.
It also has astonishing health and healing properties and we feel privileged to be one of the select few in the UK that import Japanese Matcha as we understand its true value.
One of the reasons the health benefits of Matcha exceed those of other premium green teas is because you consume the whole leaf and not just the brewed water. One serving of Matcha is the equivalent of 10 servings of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.
Matcha green tea has a much higher concentration of antioxidants than orange juice or blueberries, two fruit sources which are recognised for having an abundance of antioxidants.
Matcha has antiviral and antibiotic properties which are said to help to prevent cold and flu viruses whilst also aiding digestion by killing harmful bacteria Matcha is Very High in Antioxidants
Antioxidants are the amazing nutrients and enzymes that are essential for fighting life threatening diseases; the negative effects of UV radiation which in turn gives us younger-looking skin and all other age related decline. They are something that the health-conscious seek from foods such as raw fruits, green veggies, not forgetting dark chocolate. ORAC measures the potency of antioxidants found in food and beverages. Matcha offers a stunning high level of ORAC units: With 1573 units it surpasses all natural antioxidant rich food known so far.
Eisai – the monk who brought tea to Japan said that it was “the elixir of the immortals. Wherever tea seeds are planted, long life is sure to follow”
