We’ve all got that one friend who simply refuses to believe what you tell them, or try what you’re offering them.
They’re the one who will always pooh-pooh any new suggestion or insist that what you’re telling them is fantasy.
This is the person who refuses to carry a cellphone or go on social media.
Persuading this person, often a family member who is older, to do anything that was invented after 1950 is tough call.
So how would you sell them the concept of matcha tea?
Especially when you know they would love it!
We compiled a cheat sheet of undisputable facts, to persuade, charm and beguile even the biggest skeptics!
- TELL THEM IT STOPS THE AGING PROCESS
Okay, don’t tell them that exactly. But matcha tea can claim to dramatically assist the holding back of father time.
How does it do this?
The antioxidant properties contained within matcha green tea can help to slow the process of aging. It does this by stopping oxidation and the mutation of DNA. It can even assist repairing damaged DNA.
- TELL THEM HOW IT CAN BE USED TO DETOX
Throw away that expensive – and vile – looking detox diet kit.
Serenity and a clean body can be achieved for a lot less fuss, not to mention money – and it actually tastes pleasant too!
We know it is a rarity to combine both health with flavor and perhaps cannot blame a skeptic for disbelieving that it is possible to do – but it can be!
Just one daily cup of matcha is rich in chlorophyll – the agent that provides the matcha with its vibrant color.
As well as looking pretty, chlorophyll is a detoxifier. It can help to remove the presence of heavy metals from the body.
It can be used (in small doses, we should point out) to help bring about a detox if used regularly.
- EXPLAIN HOW IT CAN HELP BATTLE CANCER
Although no one is claiming a cure at this stage, research by an English university recently discovered the beneficial effects that matcha tea had on cancer cells. It helped stop them from growing and expanding.
Studies are still ongoing into the benefits that matcha tea can bring to the fight against cancer.
- CASUALLY MENTION MATCHA CAN HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS!
If you know someone who is forever on a diet, they could do a lot worse than to incorporate a cup of matcha tea into their latest fad carefully crafted diet plan.
This is because matcha has been proven to help with weight loss. It does this by kick starting the body’s metabolism.
What’s more, it could see you burning up to four times as many calories, than diet and exercise alone.
When something claims to do this, it is usually either illegal or liable to leave you running to the toilet suddenly!
Tip: This is one instance where to get the maximum benefits, it is best to simply drink the matcha as a tea (with no sugar, of course). Although all the same qualities are present in matcha when it is baked into cakes, this may be counterproductive as a weight loss plan!
Fortunately, there are no untoward side effects to simply imbibing a nice hot bowl of matcha tea.
Maybe it is best enjoyed at the start of a long workout session though, as it could stimulate your fat burning by up to a quarter!
- EXPLAIN HOW MATCHA MAKES THEM FEEL GOOD
Your cynical friend has probably forgotten what it’s like to feel good. But this is exactly how a cup of matcha makes you feel.
With the amino acid l theanine, sharpness and calmness are magnified and the brain can focus down on the task at hand, with no drama!
There’s no doubt that matcha is the one to pick, for those panic filled all night study sessions. It is certainly a better study partner than the jerky, anxious companion that is coffee.
Once your skeptic friend tries matcha for the first time, they will never look back!
