Matcha green tea is a powerhouse of antioxidants! One cup of matcha green tea is equal to 10 cups of regular green tea in the antioxidant category!
Not only is it high in antioxidants, it is also has catechins. EGCg and other catechins counteract the effects of free radicals from the likes of pollution,
UV rays, radiation, and chemicals, which can lead to cell and DNA damage. Since over 60% of the catechins in matcha are actually EGCg,
a daily matcha regimen can help restore and preserve the body’s integral well-being and balance.
Matcha also contains L-theanine which helps brain function by calming your brain and allowing you to focus.
It is also a great source of vitamins, fiber, and minerals.
I love adding it to my Mango & Matcha Vegan Layer Cake, smoothies, and shakes!
