Let’s Talk L-Theanine

Since when did good health = sacrifice? Motive Matcha lets you ADD to your lifestyle for better health. How might you ask? Well it comes down to the properties of this magical, mystical Matcha powder! Most of us would agree, we feel great after a daily dose of Matcha. Experiencing a boost of energy and enhanced focus, all while feeling calm. 

Insert L-Theanine.

A rare amino acid found in green tea leaves, matcha is full of clean energy because it is rich in L-Theanine. This clean, green powder contains as much as five times of this amino acid than other brewed green and black teas. 

So what are the benefits? L-Theanine has been shown to stimulate the brain's alpha waves, causing both a calm alertness and state of relaxation. Through slow releasing energy, the presence of L-Theanine helps to fight against the caffeine crash or jitters many experience.

If you’re dancing at the sound of this, we promise it gets even better! The benefits of L-Theanine don’t stop there. A multifaceted amino-acid, its presence in matcha triggers the production of dopamine and serotonin in the brain. These famously happy hormones are known to improve mood, memory and promote better concentration. Couple this with the ability to provide long-lasting energy by entering the bloodstream gradually, we’re not lying, it really is a hero compound. 

So back to dancing… from dawn till dusk, with a Motive Matcha in hand of course.
