While watching the Dr. Oz show one day I was enlightened about all the health benefits of drinking Macha Tea. I had heard about the tea before but never really paid much attention to it until now. Try to invest in an “organic matcha” to avoid destroying any of the health benefits from the chemical pesticides that other teas are sprayed with during the growing process. It’s such a small investment to improve your health so give it a try. I am going to order today. I found a few brands that have great reviews (below) so just click on the brand and it will take you right to place your order.
You may also want to invest in a Matcha Tea wisk it is necessary to get the best result from your loose tea. See below for inexpensive ones you can purchase.
Here are the health benefits that Matcha Tea is supposed to provide:
1. High in Antioxidants
2. Loaded with Catechin, EGCg
3. Enhances Calm (boy do I need this)
4. Boosts Memory and Concentration (boy do I need this too)
5. Increases Energy Levels and Endurance
6. Burns Calories
7. Detoxifies the Body
8. Fortifies the Immune System
9. Improves Cholesterol
