What Are The Health Benefits of Matcha?
Throughout this year of matcha madness, we have seen matcha move far beyond the cup and onto our plates. Now you can have your tea and eat it too, by incorporating matcha into your baking, cooking and even into your skin care regimen. So what makes matcha so great?
Matcha is packed with antioxidants and in particular, catechins a class of plant compounds that help the body eliminate free radicals. Not only that, but matcha has been shown to help support the liver, the heart as well as boost brain health. Need help focusing? Matcha is got you covered! Matcha has roughly a quarter of the amount of caffeine as a similar-sized cup of brewed black coffee. There are also no spikes and crashes as matcha contains L-Theanine, a phytonutrient which slows the body’s absorption of caffeine.
