Leaf, Laugh, Love - The Health Benefits Of Matcha Tea

OpiBiotix Online

SINCE the 12th century, matcha tea has been revered for its health benefits. Unlike other brews, the stone-ground powdered tea comes from the whole leaf of the plant, delivering a concentrated burst of antioxidants. It was introduced by Japanese Buddhist priest Eisai who wrote: "Tea is the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one's life more full and complete."

And so matcha is the perfect partner to the new GoFigure range of mueslis – a healthy breakfast for weight loss. Its distinctive flavour has been teamed with nutrient-packed pistachios - and when it comes to taste satisfaction there are no half measures.

The potential health value of matcha has been well documented. Rich in catechins, plant compounds that act as natural antioxidants, matcha has been linked to benefits such as weight loss, heart health and protection against liver disease. Matcha is also high in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which is believed to have cancer-fighting properties.

Combined with fibre and protein-rich pistachios, this GoFigure muesli flavour is designed to taste great and help you feel fuller for longer. Not only that, the characteristics of pistachios perfectly complement the GoFigure healthy weight loss and weight management approach. The fibre content within the nuts acts as a source of food (known as a prebiotic) for the good bacteria found in our guts (known as probiotics), subsequently encouraging a healthy digestive system and are loaded with essential nutrients which are vital to our wellbeing.

All GoFigure breakfast muesli pots are high in fibre and contain the patented and award-winning SlimBiome® which clinical studies have shown increases the feeling of fullness over time and reduces hunger and cravings. Ultimately by feeling fuller for longer, it helps take away the hunger pains that typically lead to snacking, in-turn helping individuals lose weight through easier management of calorie intake. Thanks to the inclusion of dietary fibres and prebiotics within SlimBiome, our mueslis also help promote and support a healthy gut.

Muesli pots are part of the GoFigure range of products, packed full to the brim with healthy, natural ingredients, designed to be consumed at home or on the go. Our healthy meal replacement shakes contain protein, vitamins and minerals, a super green complex, natural flavours and sweetened naturally by stevia. Our healthy flapjacks come filled with gluten-free oats, dates and sultanas as well as fruit and/or nuts. And like the muesli, each of our products contains the award-winning ingredient, SlimBiome®, an ingredient to help you feel fuller for longer. 

Under our 2-2-go weight management programme, replace breakfast with a super-filling delicious muesli pot and lunch with one of our meal replacement shakes and then top up with a nutritious flapjack between meals. 

Tasty, quick and satisfying - fewer cravings mean a greater chance of success, and maintaining the amount consumed helps make it sustainable to keep at it. Why not give science a go and allow GoFigure to help you, help yourself!
