In the past few decades, green tea has come to the light as one of the natural ways to improve your health. Though its use is very recent in Western countries, this is a plant that has been used for centuries in the far east, in countries such as China and Japan, now big producers of this type of tea. There are different variations of this tea, one of the most popular ones is the organic Matcha green tea.
This variation of green tea refers to the way the plant is treated before consumption. Organic means that the plant has not been grown using chemical products and fertilizers. Instead, organic plantations use 100% natural products, the way it should be from the start really! Organic products have proved to be healthier both in the short and the long term.
This type of green tea has a lot of benefits. It acts as a great way to prevent skin problems and skin cancer thanks to the high amount of antioxidants it contains, it helps lower blood pressure and regulate blood sugar levels. At the same time, green tea has been used along with good dieting programs such as Michael Thurmond’s 6 week body makeover, thanks to its fat burning benefits (thermogenesis).
This organic matcha green tea is found in the market with a higher price tag than common green tea. Why? Well to start, organic products have a higher value than products grown with chemical fertilizers, besides that, organic green tea takes more time to be processed for consumption so in a way there is less supply than common tea.
If you have not tried any type of green tea, let me tell you that no matter what variation you use, you will still reap the benefits of this product. However, if you can find and afford a supply of organic tea, go for it. It really pays off.
