**GIVE-AWAY DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF POST!**
Green tea. I’ve read it a million times — it’s so good for you! Skip the coffee, grab the green tea. It’s my go-to when coffee is out. I always feel good about myself for having a cup. Normally, I drink it hot and stir in some milk and sweetener — maybe a little honey. But, like most “healthy” things I always wonder — is this stuff really all that everyone says it is?
Well, apparently it is and I need to step up my intake. I’ve scoured the Internet (okay looked at multiple, pretty trustworthy health websites) to come up with the main benefits doctors and nutrition experts agree are benefits of this miracle drink.
- Lowers blood pressure
- Helps decrease tooth decay
- Reduced cholesterol
- Helps with metabolism
- Promotes brain health
- Helps with blood sugar stability
- Energy boost
But did you know there’s a way to get even MORE out of this stuff? Like 137x more? It’s super easy, through using organic green tea matcha — where leaves are ground into a fine powder, which you can stir into water for tea. Since you drink the actual leaves, you get 137x more of the antioxidents than you’d get from a normal tea bag. Woah — that’s crazy! But it’s sure a good reason start whipping up some matcha, isn’t it? Matcha tea is the place to be.
Lucky for you, I have some 🙂 I’ve been using this matcha tea for a week now and I’m loving it. Easy, cheap, health in spoonful. But it’s not just for your tea cup! You can also use it in things like:
- Anything you can put powder in!
So it’s pretty versatile and you know you’re doing your body good by adding some to whatever your working on — like a body really good. It’s like chia seeds — a little bit goes a long way for your health.
