Bios Life E (Unicity Matcha)

Bios Life E (Unicity Matcha)

Bios Life E (Unicity Matcha) is a nutritional supplement used to supply necessary vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes, as well as provide energy, amino acids, and antioxidants on a daily basis. Bios life E is a flavored powdered drink mix, delivered in a single-serve packet for convenience and ease of use.

Benefits and Research
Bios Life E (Unicity Matcha) is a refreshing ingredient blend that may boost energy and concentration, lower stress levels, and increase the metabolism. The principle ingredient in Bios Life E is a high-quality Matcha, a uniquely-grown green tea from Japan, which delivers a powerful dose of antioxidants in each serving.
Research shows Matcha delivers as much as 137 times more antioxidants than other green or black teas available on the market. Matcha contains especially high amounts of green tea antioxidants called catechins, a class of polyphenols, which may produce thermogenic effects by increasing the body’s metabolism. Catechins and other green tea polyphenols may also protect against cell damage.
Matcha is derived from Camellia sinesis, one of the few plants that naturally produce high levels of L-theanine and caffeine which may supply an increase in energy as well as enhance cognitive ability. Matcha is a unique tea leaf because it is shade-grown, forcing the plant to grow at a much slower rate. This greatly increases the catechins and amino acids available in an equivalent serving of Matcha green tea compared to standard tea. Additionally, because Matcha tea leaves are powdered and consumed whole and not just steeped, a cup of Matcha tea contains a larger variety and quantity of nutrients. This includes soluble and insoluble components such as chlorophyll, protein, and dietary fiber.
The catechins in Matcha have strong antioxidant properties and measured benefits in humans. These antioxidants work to speed up the metabolism, provide more energy over a longer period of time, and even decrease muscle fatigue.
Research shows the amino acid L-theanine, found in Matcha, has a calming effect on the human brain without causing drowsiness. This relaxation, paired with the stimulant effects of caffeine and theophylline, creates a heightened mental state that improves concentration.

Suggested Use
The contents of the packet can be mixed with 8-12 fl. oz. of water, shaken or stirred vigorously, and consumed. It can be served with ice if desired. Use one packet daily.
