Wellness Wednesday: MATCHA
I LOVE YOU SO MATCHA
Today, we honor the ingredient of matcha. Did you know that this "super green tea" provides the energy and mental focus of caffeine without the crash associated with coffee? We love this informative post on Encha's website that offers a comprehensive overview of matcha's many health benefits!
Here are our top 3 reasons why we love matcha:
- It contains theanine, an amino acid that is associated with "wakeful calmness," which equals mental focus without the anxiety.
- It may help prevent cancer and heart disease because it contains a high amount of catechins, a type of super-antioxidant.
- Additionally, matcha is also an antihypertensive and anti-inflammatory ingredient, meaning it may help lower high blood pressure and reduce inflammation.
... and the best part is that matcha is one of the key ingredients in our energy-packed REVIVE bar! We only use the best quality, latte-grade matcha from Encha. What has been your experience with matcha? We'd love to hear from you.
Cheers to vitality!
