Matcha green tea – the powerhouse tea of health boosting properties has completely swept everyone off their feet.
Matcha tea powder is now appearing in baked foods, breakfast smoothies, desserts and savoury dishes. Since it's a powder, Matcha has made it possible for us to not just drink tea, but now eat it too. Including Matcha in your diet could be a conscious health decision and one of the very best. Organic Matcha green tea provides the purest, most unprocessed forms of tea possible.
Matcha mania is real and it's here to stay.
Matcha does all these great things for your body:
Replenishes phytonutrients – Phytonutrients are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory rich. Phytonutrients may also enhance immunity and intercellular communication, repair DNA damage from exposure to toxins, detoxify carcinogens and alter estrogen metabolism. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) states that consuming a phytonutrient-rich diet can be an “effective strategy” for reducing cancer and risk of heart disease.
Takes good care of your skin in all seasons – Matcha is high in Polyphenols and there's recent evidence that suggests that consuming Polyphenols can be a powerful way to protect the skin from ageing.
Removes toxins from your body - The incredible amount of chlorophyll in Matcha detoxifies your body of heavy metals and toxins naturally.
Keeps you well-hydrated – Public health nutritionist Dr. Carrie Ruxton and of Kings College, London states that tea rehydrates just as well as water does, but it also has many other health benefits. Water is essentially replacing fluid she writes, tea replaces fluids and contains antioxidants.
Improves your oral health – Matcha reduces the number of streptococcus and lactobacillus in the mouth. From eliminating bad breath to fighting bacterial infection, Matcha prevents cavities and strengthens gums.
Keeps you energised –Coffee and energy drinks give you the energy spike and then the caffeine crash. The problem is that the caffeine in these drinks has an acid affect that impacts the adrenal glands. This causes spikes in adrenaline glucose and insulin levels, which causes the resulting jitters, nervousness, sleeplessness and hunger pangs.
The caffeine in Matcha, however, forms a bond with numerous nutrients so that it enters the bloodstream slowly over time, leading to a steady level of energy for up to 6 hours and most importantly, avoiding the one hour spike and crash.
Helps you to focus – The fact that Matcha promotes energy levels, does not mean that it doesn't help to calmly focus on the task at hand. The L-theanine in Matcha promotes a calm, attentive state.
8. Removes free radicals from your body – The antioxidants in Matcha protect your body from free radical damage, preventing ageing and cellular damage.
