BIOS LIFE® E (UNICITY MATCHA)
Supports a Healthy Metabolism1
A unique Chi-Oka Matcha blend formulated to help increase energy and concentration without the crash that accompanies many traditional energy drinks. Unicity Matcha has been formulated to energize your body and mind, giving you the vitality and clarity to get the most from your day.
BENEFITS AND RESEARCH
Bios Life® E and Unicity Matcha contain refreshing ingredients that may boost energy, concentration, and metabolism while lowering stress levels. The principal 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.

About the Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR)
For more than 70 years, medical specialists across the world have turned to the Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR) as the authoritative source of information on drugs and prescribed substances.
In 2019 the PDR became exclusively in a digital format called the Prescribers' Desk Reference (PDR), that continues to be utilized in virtually every physician's office, pharmacy, clinic, and library. No medical reference is more current, more recognized, or more respected. The PDR contains label information, dosage instructions, images, and more.
