Matcha literally means “powdered tea.” When you drink Matcha, you drink the actual leaves, that were finely powdered and made into a solution. Therefore, you would be drinking a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. What’s great about it is you can use it for lattes, smoothies, cooking and baking.
There are so many reasons why you should be taking Matcha tea but today I’ll give you five great reasons to enjoy a cup of Matcha Green Tea as part of your daily routine.
Five benefits of Matcha Tea
Matcha is loaded with natural antioxidants. 1 cup of Matcha can contain up to 137 times the amount of antioxidants (EGCG) compared to a “normal” cup of green tea.
Matcha contains high levels of thermogenic properties. Thus, boosts your metabolism and can increase your fat burn with up to 40%.
Matcha contains a powerful dose of chlorophyll that’s a super detoxifier capable of naturally eliminating
heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body.
IMPROVES SKIN HEALTH
Drinking Matcha on a regular basis have shown to reduce acne & improve skin health by produ-cing less sebum, minimising skin inflammation and boosting your immune system, giving you a healthy glow!
Get-Matcha is a perfect alternative to coffee for your daily energy boost as it contains the caffeine theophylline that gives a slower release of energy. Also, it eliminates the hypertension, nervousness & jitters induced by conventional coffees.
