Supports a Healthy Metabolism1
Bios Life® E and Unicity Matcha are flavored, powdered drink mix packets for convenience and ease of use. Bios Life® E is a nutritional supplement used to supply necessary vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. Bios Life® E also provides energy, amino acids, and antioxidants on a daily basis. Bios Life® E contains high quality Matcha as well as green coffee bean extract.
Unicity Matcha is a blend of natural ingredients that boost energy, lower stress levels, and increase metabolism. Unicity Matcha contains high quality Matcha, guarana, and Japanese knotweed.
Bios Life® E and Unicity Matcha contain refreshing ingredients that may boost energy, concentration, and metabolism while lowering stress levels. The principle ingredient in Bios Life® E and Unicity Matcha is a high quality Matcha, a uniquely grown green tea from Japan, which delivers a powerful dose of antioxidants in each serving.
Research shows that 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, provide more energy over a longer period of time, and even decrease muscle fatigue. 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 produces high levels of L-theanine and caffeine. High levels of L-theanine and caffeine may supply an increase in energy as well as enhance cognitive ability. Research has shown that the amino acid L-theanine 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 which improves concentration.
Matcha is a unique tea leaf because it is grown in the shade, 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. 1
The contents of the packet can be mixed with 8-10 fl. oz. of water, shaken or stirred vigorously, and consumed. Use one packet daily.
Bios Life ® E and Unicity Matcha are generally well tolerated. As with any dietary supplement, some gastrointestinal discomfort may be experienced. Bios Life® E and Unicity Matcha contains moderate amounts of caffeine; as such, individuals who are sensitive to caffeine should exercise caution when using these products.
Bios Life® E and Unicity Matcha are packaged in single-serving foil packets.
