Tea trend alert! From industry experts to it-girls, Matcha tea is taking the world of wellness by storm. In case you haven’t noticed, there’s much ado about Matcha these days. Even famous fashion blogger Leandra Medine of Manrepeller.com is singing the praises of the age-old powdered beverage. So what’s all the fuss about? Let’s get right to it. To start, when it comes to health and nutritional value, Matcha is no match for any other green tea on the market. Unlike other teas, drinking Matcha involves consuming the entire tea leaf, rather than just ingesting brewed water. Packed with catechin polyphenols, as well as vitamins A,B-complex, C, E and K, Matcha’s inventory of antioxidant compounds is through the roof. In fact, Matcha’s antioxidant activity is twenty times that of blueberries or pomegranates. So go ahead and add the miracle mixture to your cancer-fighting shopping list. But it’s not just in the impressive arena of cancer prevention where Matcha’s high antioxidant content excels. Matcha’s amazing antioxidant properties also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, stabilize blood sugar levels, lower high blood pressure, enhance the body’s resistance to harmful toxins and even slow the aging process. Oh, and let’s not forget that this divine drink is nearly calorie-free. Boosting your metabolism to help the body burn fat is yet another of Matcha’s infinite fab features.
