Detoxify your body with Matcha!

Detoxify your body with Matcha!

As the holiday seasons ends, summer is here, we are still prone to indulging in acidic and unhealthy food and drinks on and off. Meaning there is always temptation. So, it’s always good to keep healthy eating habits and be sure to detox whenever we indulge in some naughty food and drink.

The best and healthiest way to detox our bodies is with matcha, which has many benefits relating to detoxifying our bodies and restoring gut health. Matcha contains antioxidants, the micronutrient polyphenols, and chlorophyll that help to cleanse the body full of toxins.

What is matcha?

Matcha green tea is the oldest and most premium variety of green tea in Japan. Matcha is 100% pure green tea leaves, stone ground into a very fine and densely nutritious powder.

Unlike regular tea where the teabag is steeped and thrown away, drinking matcha allows you to consume the entire leaf, meaning you ingest 100% of the nutrients. It’s jam-packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential vitamins and minerals, and each serve is nutritionally equivalent to 10 cups of regular green tea. The caffeine effects are much gentler on the body and mind than coffee, espresso, or energy drinks.

How does Matcha help detoxify your body?

Matcha green tea is rich in chlorophyll, which is the natural green colour in the leaves that helps improve liver function, which can help boost your body’s ability to flush out toxins. It also contains polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants known for detox and strengthening the immune system. When you consume matcha you are receiving a full concentration of antioxidants, and this helps remove toxins.

How to drink matcha

For ceremonial grade matcha, it’s recommended to only mix it with hot water and nothing else. Ceremonial grade has a very delicate flavour, with vegetal notes and naturally sweet so must be served as purely as possible.

What you need: Matcha bowl, matcha spoon and matcha whisk

Preparation:  Sift 1 scoop of matcha into your bowl. Add 75ml of hot water. Knead with the matcha whisk until smooth and briskly.  Whisk in “w” motion until the surface of the matcha becomes frothy. Consume immediately.
