Good for the Brain
Research shows that drinking Matcha can improve your memory, your attention span and your reaction time. Matcha has a concentrated amount of caffeine in it, alongside a compound called L-theanine, which changes the ways in which coffee affects our bodies. This means Matcha can give you all the benefits of coffee without the dreaded energy crush it usually comes with.
Good for the Body
Matcha is also rich with EGCG, an antioxidant that has many different health benefits. EGCG helps to reduce inflammation in the body, to lose weight and, some say, to help prevent cancer. While not being tested on humans just yet, many experiments show that EGCG has qualities that help prevent cancer, especially in the skin, lung, and liver. If that’s not a good reason to drink it daily, we don’t know what is.
Good for the Heart
Sadly, heart disease is the cause of a third of the deaths in people over 35. Fortunately, Matcha can help with that. Matcha is made out of green tea leaves, and green tea is known for helping reduce cholesterol and decrease the risk of both strokes and heart disease. If somehow you are not yet convinced that Matcha is an extraordinary drink, you haven’t been paying attention.
How to Make Matcha Latte
Matcha can be made in many different ways, but Matcha Latte is by far the tastiest option. In order to make Matcha Latte, all you need is some Matcha powder, hot water, a sweetener, and a milk of your choice. To make the Matcha, add 1/4 tsp of the powder to your mug, and then add 1 tbsp of hot water. Now, whisk until the powder is dissolved. If you wish to try the traditional way of whisking, you can use a bamboo whisk. After the powder has dissolved, heat your milk, either using a microwave or a milk frother, if you want to be fancy. Add the milk to the mug, mix and add sweeter if necessary. Now you can sit back and enjoy a guilt-free, healthy, tasty drink,
