Matcha powder for weight loss
Matcha is considered to be the most potent form of green tea because you consume the entire leaf of the tea plant. That is why it has more health benefits than regular green tea.
It has antioxidants called catechins which give green tea its health benefits. Catechins are known to help with weight loss by reducing overall body fat and protect against cell damage which slows down the ageing process.
Drinking this powder enhances the oxidation of fats in the body, leading to overall fat loss. It contains caffeine so it will give you an energy boost however, it contains less caffeine than regular coffee or tea.
It can also help to enhance your concentration and focus, leading to greater productivity.
Studies have shown that by consuming it daily, it increases thermogenesis (metabolic rates and calorie burning), which burns fat at a faster rate than usual.
Consuming matcha powder combined with at least 30 minutes of exercise a day will certainly help you to lose those extra pounds and do wonders for your health!
How to drink it
It’s best consumed in the morning as it helps to kick start your day with renewed energy and vitality. However, it is recommended not to consume more than 3 cups a day as it contains caffeine which can affect your sleep.

Mix it well and sip it slowly. Enjoy!
