Every morning when you drink tea, how do you do it? If you are like most people you put the tea bag in a glass of warm water and after a few minutes remove the bag and throw it inside the trash can. What if I tell you, that you have just thrown away more than 50% essential antioxidants, vitamins and minerals in that tea bag? You don’t believe me? Okay let me prove it to you. Water can only extract a fraction from the tea leaves that you use to brew a cup of tea. The main benefits of the tea are still packed in the tea leaves. You can only get the complete nutrients when you drink a whole leaf.
Relax; I’m not saying you should turn to a herbivore or more specifically a folivore, lol. No, I’m not saying that. What in essence am saying is that you should try as much as possible to get the whole benefit from any food you are eating, drinking green tea inclusive. So how do you do that? Glad you asked. I have the simplest and quickest solution for you, drink matcha. Yes, that’s it, when you drink this tea; you are taking in the whole leaf.
You want to know why I am raving about this tea, it is made from Matcha powder which contains fine-ground Japanese green tea leaves from centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony, and it delivers delectable organic flavor with every sip. From being a cancer fighter, a virus fighter, a fat burner and so much more, this tea can do so much good for your health and well being. This is because it is packed with antioxidants especially the popular EGCs.
Matcha provides you with an assemblage of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, in such a ways that no other green tea can because it is made from straight, stone ground tea leaves. If truth be told, if you want to get the full effect of matcha from other green teas, you have to drink at least 10 servings of green tea to get the potency in one glass of matcha.
Oxidants here, antioxidants there. What really are antioxidants? Antioxidants are natural (in the case of matcha) or man-made products that stops or delays some types of cell damage. It does this by slowing down the oxidation process in the body and forming of radicals which causes diseases and illness. These chemical compounds, the antioxidants also slow ageing, and prevent chronic diseases. Now you know that you should eat lots of fruits and vegetables due to their ant oxidative abilities but I tell you, matcha is unequalled in this provision.
So if you want to fight diseases and infections in your body properly, always drink matcha tea. It is rich in fiber, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar, boosts metabolism, fights against bacteria and viruses, aids in concentration, detoxifies naturally and effectively, calms and enhances your mood.
