There Is a Substantial Amount Of Antioxidants in Magic-Matcha




blog 2

My Love for Matcha I want to Share it with you.

                    

This Japanese Green Powered Tea as I said in an earlier blog is the champagne of all teas.
The health Benefits speak for themselves.
The taste is that of a Savoury/ Sweat warm thick smooth Texture, as you already Know it is green in colour. The darker the green the higher Grade Matcha that it is.

To Drink Matcha it should be enjoyed the traditional way made in a bowl ( Chawan)
Water is boiled then left to cool for 2-3 Minutes.
Half a teaspoon is added Then whisked with a chasesn (Bamboo Whisk/ Spoon / Electric Whisk)

The Matcha then will appear Smooth with a slight fluffy topping.
No Honey is needed but depending on your pallet feel free to give it a whirl.
As Matcha is in Powdered Form it also makes fantastic Lattes, can be added to protein shakes, Cakes, Bread Biscuits.

The list is endless but that is yet for another blog.

Today I just want to share with you a list of Health Properties that you will gain from Consuming Matcha in your daily Diet.

Matcha Is Not Addictive at all, due to the small amount of caffeine released you will never get a caffeine crash as you would with coffee.

Matcha is filled with Antioxidants especially catechins and epigallocatechin gallate 9egcg)
Which offer tremendous health benefits, these antioxidants combat free radicals, if free radicals build up over time, they can lead to chronic disease.

L Theanine helps boost the alpha brain waves which also help to relive stress and anxiety.

You will Consume a good amount of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, and K.

Matcha lowers the bad cholesterol (LDL)
Increased Metabolic rate (Thermogenesis which is the body’s ability to burn fats.

Better Neurological Health. Matcha is filled with L Theanine an amino acid which can boost cognitive health.


 I personally Recommend Starting off with One cup of Matcha a day and building from there.
Why not try it first thing in the morning, you sure will reap the benefits throughout the rest of the morning/mid-afternoon.

I personally kick start my day with a Bowl of Matcha.
Followed straight after with A Matcha Protein Shake.
With these Cold Mornings and being a suffer of Chilblains the Thermogenic properties of matcha help with my condition.

Hope you enjoyed the read I return Again Soon.

My Love for Matcha Will Continue.
