The Metabolism-Boosting Matcha and Coconut Oil
Fatty acids come in medium and longer chains which are metabolized very differently. While the body may find it somewhat difficult to deal with the long chain fatty acids, the medium chain fatty acids are sent directly to the liver from the digestive tract where they would be used for energy instantly. Coconut oil is one of the best sources of medium chain fatty acid.
For people with sluggish metabolism and those battling weight issues, medium chain fatty acid has been proven to be very effective in such instances.
There are credible studies which reveal that eating medium chain fatty acids will help to increase metabolism as well as burn off excess stored fat.
One of such studies concluded that the capacity of medium chain triglycerides to increase endogenous oxidation of long-chain saturated fatty acids hints that the role of medium-chain triglycerides in body weight control over an extended period.
A study revealed that consuming 15-30 grams of medium-sized fatty chain per day, this is the equivalent of about 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil, increases energy expenditure by as much as 5%, this totals about 120 calories per day.
The study suggested that between low to a medium intake of medium chain triglycerides as part of a regular diet can play a significant role in the human body composition control via enhancing daily energy expenditure.
Another study found that people who consumed coconut oil without the intention of dieting lost body fat and dropped waist size.
Similarly, the highly effective antioxidant EGCG found in green tea has been known to boost metabolism and assist in burning fat.
Matcha has three times the EGCG level as the regular green tea, thereby making it three times more powerful.
Metabolism Boosting Matcha Mint Fat Bombs
Below are the ingredients required for the production of Metabolism Matcha Mint Fat Bombs;
-1/2 cup organic coconut butter
-1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
-2 teaspoon organic peppermint extract
-1.5 teaspoon organic matcha powder
-1-2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
Please note, that coconut butter, which is also called coconut manna, is not the same as coconut oil but rather a blended pulp of the coconut
Also, the pure maple syrup is optional as its purpose is just to add a touch of sweetness to the matcha. A source of concern for many people is that the syrup contains natural sugars.
This is not exactly a problem as the healthy fat from the coconut butter will easily balance the natural sugars found in the syrup, thereby preventing a spike in blood sugar, which is the thing we really want to avoid in the first place.
You will also need some sort of mold, a good example is food-grade silicone mold.
- Using a double boiler, melt the coconut butter with the coconut oil. In the instance where you do not have a double boiler, all you need to do is simply set a heat-proof glass measuring bowl or cup in a pot that is half filled with boiling water.
- After the coconut butter and oil has been melted, next is to add the peppermint extract, matcha powder, and if you desire, maple syrup. You then combine by mixing.
- Next is to pour the mixture into your mold
- You then transfer into the freezer and allow it to stay for between 10-15 minutes to set
- Pop the fat bombs out of the molds
- You can go ahead to enjoy or can store it in the refrigerator.
