In recent discoveries since cutting out caffeine, I have stumbled upon the delicious ancient Japanese Matcha green tea and all its incredible health benefits. For starters, in switching out your java for matcha you are going to benefit from less caffeine, but with a longer more sustainable energy boost without the crash. This bright green velvety powder comes full of super food powers that provide the body with so much value. It is the powerhouse of antioxidants, fuelling the body with what it needs to fight off infections and disease. Matcha comes from the same plant as green tea, but since it is made from the entire leaf, it provides a more concentrated amount of antioxidants. It is an excellent energy booster without the jitters and that is just the beginning.
Amongst its many health benefits, Matcha…
- Boosts metabolism and burns calories
- Detoxifies effectively and naturally
- Calms the mind and relaxes the body
- Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
- Enhances mood and aids in concentration
- Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
- Helps prevent Cancer
- Boosts brain function
The best part about this tea, is that it is simple to prepare and can be worked into your diet in a variety of different ways to add full flavor. My favorite go-to is a Matcha latte. I use 1 tablespoon of an organic Matcha green tea powder, I mix it in a frother with 1 cup of coconut milk and for a little sweetness I add some agave or maple syrup. There is no limit to the possibilities with this rich powder, try it in your smoothie or baking. Get creative and enjoy all the benefits it has to offer.
