Meet Your Matcha: Why you should Start Drinking Matcha Green Tea






Have you heard of matcha before? Green tea has been revered for better health for centuries, but matcha has become more popular in recent years.


Matcha is a type of green tea that is created by taking the young tea leaves,

grinding it into a powder, and then whisking it into hot water. Instead of just

drinking water infused with all the goodness of green tea, you are actually

drinking that green tea. That's the difference between regular green tea and

matcha, but there are so many incredible perks for drinking matcha regularly.

Here are some important ones that will have you heading to the tea aisle to

pick some up for yourself...


1. Draws out toxins

Matcha produces extra chlorophyll because it’s shade-grown. That means it

has stronger detoxifying properties that can help you naturally eliminate

heavy metals and other chemicals from your body. We all need regular

detoxification, so this is a huge plus!


2. Potent antioxidants

Green tea is an excellent source of antioxidants, but you’ve got to go with

matcha to take that to the next level. Matcha has 15 times the antioxidants of

superfood fan-favorite blueberries if that helps put it in perspective.


3. Super catechins powers

While we’re discussing antioxidants, catechins are one of the most potent,

particularly EGCG. This incredible antioxidant can help with weight loss and

keeping your heart and brain healthy. It also destroys oxidative stress and

protects against free radicals.


4. Sublime skin

Drink more matcha, and you’ll soon see you have more youthful, glowing

skin than ever before. Those catechins are responsible for that. When you

finish drinking your cup of matcha, save a little bit and dab it onto your face

after washing to get even more of a gorgeous boost.


5. Calmed focus

Need coffee to get things done but find yourself jittery? Give matcha a try.

Drinking matcha gives you the ability to stay focused and on task while

remaining calm. You’ll notice when you drink it, you feel alert yet clear -- a

great feeling when you need to get work done.


6. Burns calories

As mentioned with catechins, matcha naturally boosts your metabolism

which leads to more calories burned on a regular basis. If you’ve felt a bit

stagnant with your weight loss, try drinking matcha each day to burn fat

naturally.


7. Better oral hygiene

Matcha is highly antibacterial which means it’s great for keeping your oral

hygiene top notch. By inhibiting bacteria, it keeps things cleaner for longer

for a healthier smile.


Matcha really does so much more than this. It can boost your immunity and

memory, ease your joints, and provides you with loads of vitamins and

minerals you might not be getting with the foods you eat. So if matcha isn't a

part of your life already, it's time to give it a shot and see the positive changes

that come as a result.
