KTC/FIT Matcha

In Stock £24.95

KTC/FIT is our new brand of fitness teas specially formulated for active people!

Based on pure grade, high quality matcha, KTC/FIT Matcha is the ideal super food supplement for post or pre workout sessions.

The secret behind matcha’s super strength is found in its polyphenol compounds, particularly catechins, a type of antioxidant found in superfoods like green tea, cocoa, and apples. Heralded for being more catechin-dense than most items, green tea (and especially matcha) provides unbelievable health benefits for people who regularly drink it.

Matcha Green Tea Benefits Exercise Performance

Clinical tests suggest Matcha can not only help speed recovery in athletes whose focus is high-intensity workouts like burst training, but also it has been shown to reverse cellular damage caused by oxidative-nitrosative stress. Oxidative-nitrosative stress is just a term for the internal imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, which is an imbalance that ultimately destroys cells, prevents their repair, and causes disease.

Because it contains some of the highest level of catechins of all natural antioxidant rich foods, there is every reason in the world to assume that drinking matcha regularly can greatly aid in workout recovery, burn fat and encourage strength at a cellular level.
