Green Tea Powder: Is Matcha Healthy?
And how! But what is matcha actually made of? Basically, it is nothing more than fine green tea powder, which has been part of the tea culture in Japan for centuries. It is prepared using a bamboo whisk and hot water and tastes very different from tea bags. Apart from the intense green color, Matcha has a number of other advantages: The tea contained in green tea is – in contrast to the caffeine in coffee – released very slowly in the body. The effect lasts much longer and there is no sudden “crash” as you might know from espresso. Matcha is also high in phytochemicals and antioxidants that boost the immune system, reduce bad LDL cholesterol in the blood, and reduce inflammation. The density of healthy nutrients is higher than traditional green tea because the whole leaf is ground and drunk. This makes matcha healthy, nutritious and highly recommended for a balanced diet.
Lose weight with matcha: healthy and without starvation
Sounds crazy, but matcha can even help you lose weight! Of course, green tea is not a fat burning miracle, but it can boost your metabolism and stimulate fat burning. On the one hand, it provides an energy boost so that you can perform better during training and consequently burn more calories. On the other hand, it contains natural bitter substances that counteract cravings. At the same time, green tea has a detoxifying effect and there are even studies that come to the conclusion that the drink reduces fat absorption via the gastrointestinal tract. Just as I said: It is not a magic drug, but rather a supplement to a healthy and fit lifestyle. My overnight oats with matcha are healthy, balanced and the perfect basis for a workout.
By the way: This recipe is naturally high in protein thanks to the combination of oats, peanut butter and chia seeds. Ideal for anyone who doesn’t use additional protein powder and wants to increase their protein intake along the way.
