It’s an anti-inflammatory, helps your skin by battling free radicals, and makes your teeth stronger as well. It also helps with weight loss because it makes you burn calories much faster than normal and ignites your metabolism.
Matcha green tea powder has also been known to lend a helping hand to the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease, heart problems, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. It’s a mood-lifter as well, thanks to the L-theanine it has that releases dopamine and serotonin. The L-theanine also helps you to focus and stay alert while helping you relax and de-stress.
Drinking alcohol can lower your immunity and damage cells. So it’s a good idea to have some antioxidants with your alcoholic beverage. However, with a dose of antioxidants in your drink, you’re directly combating that.
