What’s the deal with matcha? it’s full of antioxidants that have been found to help prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease, reduce inflammation, and promote overall health. it even may help you relax and focus because it contains both l-theanine (amino acid) and caffeine: the perfect mix when you need to concentrate! 🍃🌱🌿
.
.
.
long version🤓: matcha is a type of green tea that stands out from other green teas for a couple of important reasons:
.
when making matcha the whole green tea leaf is used vs. steeping the leaves and throwing them away. this results in matcha's extremely high antioxidant content. antioxidants have been found to help lower inflammation, reduce risk of cancer, prevent coronary heart disease, and so much more.
.
matcha has the highest amount of catechins compared to other green teas. catechins are phenolic compounds found in common foods/drinks such as tea, berries, and cocoa (aka very beneficial for health). they have powerful antioxidant effects on the body. a type of catechin found in green tea called egcg is one of the reasons green tea has been found to be disease-fighting and health-promoting.
.
matcha also contains l-theanine, an amino acid that helps with relaxation and concentration. believe it or not, some research shows that taking l-theanine with caffeine before a test can reduce the amount of errors! it’s best to take l-theanine with caffeine compared to taking l-theanine alone. hence, why matcha is so great ❤️

Let's talk anti-inflammatory foods. we all know they're good, but why🤔? here’s the short version: inflammation = necessary for the body to protect itself. but too much inflammation = bad for the body. anti-inflammatory foods reduce inflammation like certain drugs do (e.g., aspirin). ginger and turmeric are great for this. food as medicine at its finest❤️. .
.
.
.
long version🤓: first, let's talk about what inflammation is. inflammation is a normal physiological process that occurs when the body is trying to protect itself, and it is totally necessary for survival. if we didn’t have inflammation, we’d never be able to heal from a cut or injury. so basically, without inflammation, we wouldn’t be alive right now.

that being said, chronic or ongoing inflammation can wreak havoc on the body. it can increase your risk of chronic many chronic diseases - such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease - and, if you already have a chronic disease, you can be sure you have inflammation as well. other contributors to inflammation include inflammatory foods, tobacco smoke exposure, excessive alcohol intake, environmental pollutants, etc.

so what can we do about it? the good news is: a lot! the foods and drinks we choose can either increase or decrease inflammation in the body (pretty cool, huh?). here is a sneak peek: ginger and turmeric are potent anti-inflammatory powerhouses. they can literally reduce inflammation in the body by acting on similar pathways as anti-inflammatory drugs (think: aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.). food as medicine - yes!
