I have been reading a lot of health-related books and already know that Green Tea has a lot of health benefits such as high antioxidants, reduce and eliminate cancer cells as well as weight control and several other benefits.
I want to share with you my experiences after drinking green tea particularly in the form of Matcha.
Types of Green Tea
Do you know that there are different types of green tea we drink? The most common type is called the Sencha Green Tea – which is made from dried tea leaves. Another type is called the Matcha Green Tea – often known as the powered green tea form. Doctors and health professionals recommend Matcha over the normal Sencha because of its high quality grade and antioxidants level.
Reasons why Matcha delivers high antioxidants is because they are grown under shades to achieve darker color and this causes the shoots to develop larger, thinner leaves with better flavor and texture as well.
One of the direct result I have after drinking Matcha green tea for a while is that I find myself have more energy. I am now able to focus and concentrate better in the morning after a glass of matcha green tea. Another benefit I discovered is that my skin condition (acne) also improved. It seems that matcha speeds up the healing of pimples and acne. In the past, it takes at least four to five days for a pimple to subside but nowadays my face is clear of pimples even if there is, it will clear off in two days! Side Note: This can also due to this fish oil that I am having.
Where I Buy My Matcha Green Tea Powder?
I order my matcha green tea from the popular online supplement store, iHerb. I have tried a few brands but find that I like this one from Green Foods Corporation. I always mix the green tea powder with my organic soya drink in the morning. I have friends who mix with coffee also. Personally I don’t drink coffee, but you might want to try =)
And I like it in powder form so I can just mix it up with any other drinks! I am sure you will like it!
