You may have seen many wellness experts, celebrities, and trainers getting on the matcha train. Making you wonder if you should switch your coffee to matcha green tea?
First, let’s start with exactly what matcha is.
Matcha is a form of green tea, using the whole tea leaf and is then ground into a fine, vibrant green powder. It’s grown in the shade, which increases its chlorphyll content. Chlorphyll is extremely beneficial to us Boss Babes since it aids in our body’s detoxification process.
Your brain will think more clearly so you can focus on exactly what you need to in your business.
High in antioxidants, matcha is particularly abundant in a catechin called EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate). It helps to counteract free radicals which are great for your skin, hair, and nails. This catechin can also help prevent cancer, has been shown to help burn more calories and increase your metabolism!
These body benefits are why I love sipping on matcha!
Many people who drink matcha notice they have calmer energy and don’t feel jittery, which is a common complaint with coffee. They report feeling more focused and don’t have an energy crash later in the day.
Personally, I cycle sync my caffeine. I pay close attention to the parts of my cycle where my body is naturally less resilient to stress, like the week before and during my period.
You don’t have to give up your beloved coffee, but you might like adding matcha into your routine.
Give matcha a try for just one week and note the body benefits you see.
You might notice your skin glowing, your energy feels calmer and more consistent, and you detox on the regular 🤗
When making matcha at home, I love Rishi’s Everyday Matcha or Akira Ceremonial Grade Matcha. I always look for one that is a vibrant green color or ceremonial grade (some actually look brown and this means they’re not fresh!)
My favorite way to make it is to follow the directions on the box (super simple) and add a little stevia to sweeten it. I save a matcha latte as a treat when I’m at a coffee shop.
