Uplifting Zen is a pure Organic Green Tea known as Genmaicha. 

 

Genmaicha is a mild delicious tasting green tea with subtle notes of popcorn and roasted brown rice.
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body.
This includes improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer as well as energy boosting.
Here are some health benefits of green tea that have been confirmed in human research studies.


RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS + SUPPORTS WEIGHT LOSS
Green tea is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols that can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage, ageing and disease.
One of the more powerful compounds in green tea is the antioxidant Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a molecule that naturally has metabolism boosting and thermogenic affects in the body, meaning it gently supports weight loss.
Green Tea also works as a fat blocker. It blocks the ability of digestive enzymes to break down fat, a step necessary for fat to enter our cells.  It doesn’t raise blood pressure or heart rate like coffee making it a great alternative. 

ANTI-AGEING
Researchers think the health properties of green tea are mostly due to polyphenols, chemicals with potent antioxidant potential. In fact, the antioxidant effects of polyphenols seem to be greater than vitamin C. Healthy Chef Genmaicha tea is rich in polyphenols such as EGCG, the most studied polyphenol compound in green tea. According to Journal of the American College of Nutrition, green tea has a higher total antioxidant capacity than black tea and higher antioxidant activity than vegetables such as garlic, kale, spinach and brussels sprouts.

ENERGY BOOSTING
Green Tea does contain caffeine but only small amounts.
The caffeine in green tea is assimilated and absorbed very slowly (over 6-8 hours), a huge difference from the quick 30-minute energy spike with coffee caffeine.
This results in a long and sustained energy boost. There is also no blood sugar spike, insulin increase, or release of the stress hormone Cortisol, as with coffee caffeine.
Green Tea can actually help stabilise blood sugar and reduces stress on the adrenal glands. All the energy benefits are obtained without the negative side effects. This is a beautiful, refreshing energising drink.

IMMUNE HEALTH
The antioxidants in Healthy Chef Organic Genmaicha are beneficial in strengthening the immune system; green tea keeps the immune system running normally. Healthy immune systems are better at handling infections from bacteria and viruses.

STRESS / ADRENAL SUPPORT

Healthy Chef Genmaicha can help to make you feel relaxed, calm and happy due to the high levels of L-theanine, an amino acid compound found in green tea, which has been studied for its calming effects on the nervous system. This green tea also contains alkaloids including caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline which provide green tea's stimulant effects. Healthy Genmaicha energises your body and relaxes your mind, supporting your health in every way.
