Matcha powder is one of the superfoods in this world. According to various sources, it even has higher antioxidants than other well known superfoods like blueberries and pecans.
Three of the health benefits that matcha powder gives us are the following:
High in antioxidants. Antioxidants help us fighting free radicals in our immune system. Hence, if you want decrease the damage that free radicals can do in your body, do not forget to incorporate matcha to your diet!
Boosts brain function. When we talk about nutrition or diet, we often forget about the power center of ourselves, the brain. The researchers found that matcha caused improvements in attention, reaction time, and memory, compared to the placebo (Healthline.com). One of the component of the matcha, L-theanine, helps us to counterbalance the effects of the caffeine. So basically you stay awake but it doesn't damage you inside as much as the caffeine.
Helps to manage weight. Like green tea, matcha powder also has proved to help boosting fat burning while exercising.

Matcha can be consumed as a drink, or it can also be eaten.
Matcha Powder - 4 ways to use it:
1. Matcha Latte
Matcha latte fits in any season... autumn, winter, spring or summer. You can make it warm or take it even with ice. I personally like using oatmilk, cashew milk or coconut milk for the latte.
Pour a teaspoon into the mug, pour boiling water and mix it well until the powder gets dissolved. Then add the latte and afterwards more water. I don't use anything to sweeten... but you could add a teaspoon of agave syrup!
