Matcha is my spirit food. I love to boost my morning smoothies with it, sprinkle it over my breakfast rice cakes topped with banana and cashew butter, or include it in a midday frappé snack.
I love to have it in the morning because it gives an unexpected boost of energy throughout the day.
What is Matcha?
- Matcha is simply ground Green Tea leaves, but when we eat it, our body absorbs a lot more of its antioxidants
- It's natural metabolism booster and calorie burner, that also detoxifies effectively and naturally and calms the mind and relaxes the body.
- It is also know for preventing Cancer and for lowering the cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
In Chinese medicine the most important principle is dynamic balance. Your stomach needs to be highly acidic to kill parasites and digest and absorb nutrients. Your small intestine needs to be highly alkaline to neutralize stomach acid.
When you drink Matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf
Matcha powdered green tea has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea.
One cup of Matcha = 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea in terms of nutritional content.
