Is there a lot of stress in your life? Are you often worried? If so, then there is no need to panic now because Japanese tea ‘matcha’ will get rid of it.

They found that the rats who drank matcha powders or matcha extracts saw a considerable decline in their worrisome behavior. If researchers believe that matcha tea contains some elements that help to ease anxiety and stress. These elements activate Dopamine D1 receptors and serotonin 5-HT1A receptors. Both of these chemicals are related to worrisome behavior.
According to Yuki, the main author of the study, “Where there is a need for more research in this regard, our study proves that the use of medicinal materials for years is beneficial for the human body as well. Hope this research on matcha is beneficial for health.
