Your thoughts race. Your heart pounds. You may even feel like you’re going to pass out.
Anxiety is destroying your days… AND your nights.
But you’ve seen the headlines. You know the risks that come with the mainstream treatments.
Like the recent study which revealed some of the most common anxiety drugs can lead to what all older Americans fear the most… dementia.
But there’s another way.
I’ve got the scoop on a refreshing beverage made from a potent, natural green powder that’s PROVEN to help erase stress and calm anxiety.
The new research reveals an absolutely delicious way to get it.
Ready for the best part? This proven science-backed solution doesn’t just help banish anxiety. It can also slash your risk of dementia at the same time.
In other words, it’s the exact opposite of those risky anxiety drugs.
The GREEN secret to fighting off anxiety
Many folks enjoy a cup of tea from time to time. And just about all kinds of this tasty beverage are good for you.
But there’s one form which is JUST starting to become popular here in the United States which could turn out to be the HEALTHIEST of them all.
It’s called matcha. And this refreshing beverage is made from a powder that’s a concentrated form of healthy green tea.
In a recent animal experiment, matcha tea helped mice overcome stressful anxiety-inducing situations. Which, for a mouse, would be things like getting lost in a new maze.
In the new study, the researchers used a maze that had special built-in “safe zones.” These walled-off areas gave the critters spots to retreat into anytime they felt anxious.
But after being given matcha, the mice spent significantly less time in those safe zones and more time boldly exploring the maze.
Why matcha makes you feel better
We’re not mice, of course, even if it does feel like we’re trapped in a maze of our own sometimes. But the tests on the mice revealed why matcha could work on us too.
It turns out the tea targeted the same system we humans have for dealing with anxiety.
The matcha activated the “reward centers” in the rodent’s brains, triggering their dopamine and serotonin receptors.
And that’s why earlier HUMAN studies have found that green tea can have the same effect on us. A 2017 review of 21 studies on green tea found it can…
- slash anxiety
- boost cognition
- enhance memory
- improve brain function
One key to the tea’s abilities is likely something we’ve seen before in humans… the stress-reducing, memory-enhancing, amino acid L-theanine.
Every tea has some of this stuff. But green tea has more than the rest.
And MATCHA has up to FIVE TIMES the levels of L-theanine as standard green tea.
But the benefits don’t end with easing anxiety and fighting off stress. L-theanine can also help reduce blood pressure and boost memory and learning.
There’s even evidence the amino acid could help enhance heart health.
Give green tea or matcha a try. I’m betting you’ll enjoy their refreshing flavor. But if it turns out green tea isn’t your thing, you can also find L-theanine as an ingredient in many anxiety-reducing supplements.
