    The health benefits of Matcha Tea Powder

    I like to vary my daily smoothies.  Today I made a simple protein-antioxidant combo using matcha green tea powder (organic) (1 tsp) , Kara coconut milk (300ml) and 1.5 tablespoons of whey protein isolate that been flavoured with organic cacao powder.   A delicious and refreshing combination.

    Matcha tea is finely powdered green tea from the finest quality  leaves. It can be made into a delicious traditional tea, made with a teaspoon and bamboo whisk, or added to frozen yoghurts (delicious), or protein bars and smoothies.  

    Health Benefits: 

    • The L-theanine in matcha relaxes  blood vessels to help  lower blood pressure, and enhances mood and  through release of the neurochemical dopamine.
    • Matcha is the strongly antioxidant, containing  catechin polyphenols, offering  protection against some cancers, and  heart disease, as well as being  cholesterol-reducing. 
    • It is  a natural anti-inflammatory and can improve joint health and mobility.
