Why Matcha is good for your health? What is so magical about the weird smelly green powder? Let’s find out.
Matcha may not be a superfood but it definitely has super health benefits!
Matcha is a Japanese green tea which is ground into a fine powder. Matcha is known for over 900 years and it has a long tradition in Buddhism, but it gained popularity in the West just recently. Often compared to green tea which health benefits we are well aware of (cancer protection, cardiovascular health protection, weight loss, and so on), but for some reason, it’s picking up real traction. What’s the big deal? The study from University of Colorado at Colorado Springs determined that Matcha has higher catechin concentration than the usual green tea leaves. Matcha also has more caffeine than green tea. That may be interesting to those of you coffee junkies!
Hold on – what is a Catechin?
We all know the overused word antioxidant. Catechins are antioxidants from the group of polifenoles, they are the ones which are the strongest!
It’s good to include matcha in your diet, but as always, don’t overdose! It has a high content of caffeine, one cup a day is enough for you to be content the health benefits it has.
Note: Remember that the source you get your powder is very important, as matcha became extremely popular, companies started producing tons of it, but not every one of them is honest. Just be mindful and do your research before buying.
P.S Peach flavour is heaven!
