Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me Organics Review

I love to try new things, especially things that are healthy! I came across a green tea product called Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder.  A 2003 study published in the Journal of Chromatography A found matcha has 137 times more of the powerful antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) than other types of green tea! Its so easy to take, as you can put it in your baked goods, you can mix it in with your smoothies and even your lattes! Thats not all, there is also a recipe guide if you're stuck on what to put it in! (I don't recommend putting it in your scrambled eggs, though!) There's recipes in here for waffles, truffles, beef, soup - everything! How awesome is that?

Here's what it can do for you:

All Day Energy - Matcha provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy as it acts as both a stimulant and a relaxant.

Metabolism boost - Matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expediture.(WOW!)

Skin Health - ​Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from harmful UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin.

137x the antioxidants of brewed green tea - Antioxidants are essential as you age to boost your body's natural defenses against oxidation. Researchers have found that a high level of dietary antioxidants can prevent many age-related diseases.

I did some serious reading and research on this product, because it was something I was REALLY wanting to work out for me, and here is some of the information that i found to be really awesome!

Matcha is green tea from the Camellia sinensis, but it a very fine powder version of the healthy
drink. Unlike other teas derived from Camellia sinensis, matcha has not been fermented. Matcha,
like other varieties of green tea, can be harvested from anywhere in the world. But more than simply ground up green tea leaves, matcha is derived from tea leaves grown in the
shade so that the leaves achieve a dark green color, which gives matcha its magnificent amino
acids. It’s quite a long process to produce matcha but serious tea drinkers rely on matcha to
enhance their culinary experiences from comfort food like macaroni & cheese to their happy hour
matcha mojito.

The reason matcha is slowly edging out traditional green tea in terms of health benefits is because 
those who ingest matcha are consuming the entire leaf rather than brewed water. One glass of 
matcha green tea is equal to 10 glasses of regular green tea as far as antioxidants and nutrients. 
In fact, a 2003 study published in the Journal of Chromatography A found matcha has 137 times 
more of the powerful antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) than other types of green tea.

I tried this for a while and I thought it was great! I had more energy and I felt more focused! At a glance, it seems a bit pricey, but the bag is a decent size, and lasts quite some time. Only a small amount is suggested daily (I believe a teaspoon) so it will take quite a while to use it all. If you compare it to energy shots, medicines, weight loss pills and all the other supplements you're taking for these problems, it seems like the Matcha green tea powder would be not only the healthier choice, but the more affordable choice! Have you ever tried this? Does it seem like something you would be interested in trying?

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
