Matcha: The superfood that broke the internet
Matcha tea is a high-quality tea powder made from green tea leaves. It came from Japan, but because of its time-consuming and high-cost production, only Kings and Samurai used to drink it. Year after year, processes have been automated and are now available worldwide.
Matcha offers plenty of benefits due to its ingredients that are rich in potassium, vitamins A and C, calcium, selenium and magnesium. It helps to improve metabolism, accelerate the burning of calories, reduce cholesterol, and protects cardiovascular health. In addition, its effective action contributes to the fight against various bacterial infections. While the high amount of chlorophyll helps in the immediate detoxification of the body.
The matcha can now be used as an ingredient for ice creams, sweets as well as food.
Balance is the key!
The benefits of matcha tea may be many, but it does not cease to contain a caffeine quantity like all kinds of tea. This is why excessive drinking may be causing side effects. ATTENTION !!! It is not a substitute for medicines.
