“What exactly is Matcha Green Tea? And why is it so trendy?” If you haven’t heard, this is the only “powder” that will enhance your life!
Completely different from traditional green tea. I absolutely refuse to live without it.
Traditional green tea is originated from China and Japan . These leaves are Camellia sinensis leaves that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea has been a huge daily lifestyle habit all over many countries in Asia for over 4,000 years. Matcha is basically a form of whole green tea leaves with extra theanine and chlorophyll. So when drinking green tea at its purist form, you will get the full health benefit of it. Drinking one cup of Matcha is equivalent to 10 cups of regular brewed green tea. There are 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea. The best Matcha Green Tea is from Japan.
Researchers and scientists have found the following benefits of Japanese Matcha:
-provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium
-boosts the immune system with powerful antioxidants including ECGg.
-lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
-boosts metabolism and burns calories
-calms and relaxes the mind and body
-enhances mood and aids concentration
-detoxifies effectively and naturally
-anti-aging prevention for skin
So why wouldn’t it be a part of my everyday life? It gives me enough caffeine naturally and keeps me focus and alert. I’m a.d.d. with 3 kids so this is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I make frozen smoothies out of it, drink it hot, add milk in it to make it a latte, bake it in cake, and I’ve also made a detoxifying cleansing facial mask out of it. (Recipes will be posted)
So if you’re like me and coffee makes you go straight to the bathroom… Try Matcha. There are so many more healthy reasons why you should make Matcha a part of your daily routine instead of a cup of coffee.
