Dave Asprey's Bulletproof coffee has become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon. Extremely popular, this fat-infused coffee offers numerous benefits from boosting energy and cognitive functions to alleviating the feeling of hunger while fasting.

The original recipe is basically a mix of freshly brewed coffee, grass-fed butter or ghee and Brain Octane oil. However, if you are not a coffee drinker or just don't want the full stimulatory effect of Bulletproof coffee, Bulletproof Matcha Latte is a great alternative to try.

What is matcha and how is it different from green tea?

Matcha is a finely ground powder of green tea leaves, traditionally consumed in East Asia.

Both matcha and green tea are made from young tea leaves. But the difference is that matcha is grown in the shade for three weeks before it's harvested.

Low UV light exposure slows down the growth and stimulates an increase in chlorophyll levels. Matcha leaves have a darker green colour compared to green tea leaves and can boast higher levels of antioxidants and amino acids, particular L-theanine.

After harvesting, matcha tea leaves are dried and stone-ground to a bright green powder.

Mix matcha powder with hot water and you'll get a bright green drink with a thin layer of creamy foam. The highest grade matcha leaves produce a more intense drink with a sweeter flavour, compared to standard coarser grades of tea.

Matcha powder can be used to make a variety of drinks (including Bulletproof Matcha Latte), as wells as a flavouring in desserts, yogurt, ice cream, chocolate or even as topping for shaved ice.

Is Bulletproof Matcha Latte healthy?

Matcha has a variety of health benefits from enhancing brain function to antioxidant support.

  • Sustained energy: While a Bulletproof coffee has more caffeine per cup, Bulletproof Matcha Latte offers a longer energy boost. Thanks to L-theanine, an amino acid found in matcha tea leaves, you can experience greater clarity, concentration, ability to focus on complex tasks and no crushes or coffee jitters.
  • Nootropic effect: Moreover, a unique caffeine + theanine combination in matcha has a nootropic effect, promoting calm alertness, mental endurance, short-term memory, and faster reaction time.
  • Antioxidants: But what really makes Bulletproof Matcha Latte stand out is the high level of antioxidants. Rich in catechins, a class of antioxidants, matcha helps stabilize harmful free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells and cause chronic disease.

Dr. Ben Bikman, a biomedical scientist and pathophysiology professor, in his book "Why We Get Sick" explores why insulin resistance has become such a significant problem for human health.

Insulin is an essential hormone that regulates energy storage and usage in the body and insulin resistance is a common health disorder, affecting a large portion of the global population. Adopting a low-carbohydrate, high-fat, and high-protein diet can help reverse insulin resistance which will lead to significant improvements in health within a short time frame.
