Dr. Oz Recommends Matcha Tea For Anti-Cancer Diet Because it is Higher in Antioxidants

March 8, 2011 by Alissa White

Today Dr. Oz focused on cancer and how to reduce the risk of getting cancer on The Dr. Oz Show.

Dr. Oz and a panel of experts in the field of cancer treatment first discussed lung cancer. They said that although lung cancer is most often caused by smoking, people can also be placed at risk by elements in their environment, most commonly asbestos and radon. A common radon detector can be used in the home to check for high levels of naturally occurring radon.

People deficient in alpha-1 antitrypsin are also at a greater risk of developing lung cancer. Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is a condition caused when a body doesn't make enough of a protein that protects the lungs and liver.

Colon cancer was also covered. To help one reduce the risk of colon cancer, avoiding eating red meats, especially processed meat, was advised. Instead, a diet high in vegetables was recommended. Drinking 4 to 6 cups of green tea daily was also suggested, and if one doesn't drink that amount each day, Matcha green tea was suggested as it is higher in antioxidants.

MATCHA GREEN TEA ON THE DR OZ. SHOW
I wanted to let you know that the author Blue Zones, Dan Buettner, was on the Dr. Oz show recently. Dan traveled the world and found areas where people lived the longest. One area is Okinawa Japan. Dan contributed part of the Okinawan people's longevity to regular consumption of matcha!

Green tea are equally effective antioxidants. Tea is also a good source of another class of flavonoids called flavonols. Flavonols found in tea include kaempferol, quercetin, and myricitin.Green tea drinkers are reported to have lower total cholesterol.

Matcha contains cancer fighting catechin, cleanses the body of toxins, and mood enhancing amino acids. Matcha has been found to fight cavities and gum disease, lower your risk for strokes, improves mental clarity, and boosts your immune system.

Matcha can help to boost one's metabolic rate, thus enhancing your ability to burn fat and lose weight.

Other health benefits from drinking Matcha include:

  • Contains potent, cancer-fighting and anti-aging catechins
  • Natural mood enhancement
  • Zero glycemic index i.e. will not raise insulin levels
  • High in fiber
  • Sugar-free
  • Rich in antioxidants and chlorophyll
  • Boosts metabolism
  • Helps to focus the mind by reducing mental and physical stress and improving cognition due to high levels of L-Theanine

Calming and focusing, whilst stimulating at the same time.

 


 
MATCHA AND DETOXING THE BODY
Rich in Chlorophyll, A Renowned Detoxifying Agent
Chlorophyll, the pigment which gives leaves their green color, helps to remove heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body. Because matcha powdered tea is fully ingested when consumed, unlike tea leaves which are infused then discarded, and because matcha is shade grown, a process which increases the chlorophyll content in the leaves, matcha tea is a chlorophyll rich food. A body detox gives you regular bowel movements. You bowel movement should be a medium brown color and sausage shaped, soft and taper on the ends. It should not be hard to push out and will actually kind of float more than quickly sink to bottom of toilet.

 
Matcha and Weight Loss
THE ABOVE THE PICTURES ARE CEE CEE MICHAELA AT 25 lbs. lighter in 17 weeks on her very own PREMIUM MATCHA TEA! NO EXERCISE!

The word thermogenesis literally means heat generation. Matcha Green tea increases thermogenesis in the body, becoming a potent appetite suppressant and increasing fat oxidation. This in turn helps the body to use fat as an energy source. This means the body is preferentially burning fat over protein.





MATCHA AND CHOLESTEROL
Research shows that green tea lowers total cholesterol and raises HDL ("good") cholesterol in both animals and people. One population-based clinical study found that men who drink green tea are more likely to have lower total cholesterol than those who do not drink green tea. Results from one animal study suggest that polyphenols in green tea may block the intestinal absorption of cholesterol and promote its excretion from the body. In another small study of male smokers, researchers found that green tea significantly reduced blood levels of harmful LDL cholesterol.

Matcha contains more than 10x the polyphenols of regular green tea plus it retains the fiber of the entire green tea leaf, it stands to reason that matcha would be superior to regular green tea for cholesterol.


 
MATCHA AND MENTAL ALERTNESS
Matcha drinkers have reported clearer and quicker thinking, improved memory for things like names and numbers, increased alertness and awareness, elevated moods, "calm euphoria,"and improved concentrative abilities for studying, working,or driving.

MATCHA AND MORE
ALPHA BRAIN WAVES!
 
 
Matcha enhances mood and promotes a sense of wellness by enhancing alpha waves in the brain (associated with a feeling of happiness, relaxation, and alertness) and increasing dopamine (and possibly serotonin) production - two of the brain's 'feel good' chemicals.
 
Improved Immune System Functioning- Your alpha waves are responsible for amping up your immune system. They have been linked to health, recovery from sickness, and serve as protection from stress-related illnesses. Stress can quickly ramp up damage on your immune system if you go long periods without taking some time to relax; thus increasing alpha activity.

MATCHA TEA AS AN ANTI-DEPRESSANT
depression,emotions,people,photographs,sad,sadness,teens

Alpha Brain Waves = Natural Antidepressant - Alpha brain waves allow for increased release of an important neurotransmitter called "Serotonin." Serotonin production usually drops to lower than normal levels in your brain when you feel depressed. In fact, most antidepressants nowdays aim to increase low levels of serotonin in the brain (do a search for "SSRI's" to find out more). For these reasons, it makes sense that alpha brain waves may help ward off your blues.

MATCHA AND UTERINE FIBROIDS

February 04, 2010

Green Tea EGCG:

A Natural Treatment for Uterine Fibroids

(Note: Check with your doctor before you take matcha. Our research, thus far, has found that it may help with smaller fibroids but not larger ones...as it is said that one is not suppose to have caffeine if she has fibroid tumors.We encourage to do your own Uterine Fibroid and Caffeine research. Check out this informative article and make your best judgement.)

 

Uterine fibroids can be a very difficult condition to treat clinically. The treatment is often surgical when symptoms are significant enough to cause problems. Uterine fibroids are believed to affect at least 1/3 of North American Women. They cause symptoms such as heavy bleeding, pressure effects on other organs, and fertility concerns: all of which have large impacts on a woman's health. A study has recently come out from the Centre for Women's Health Research at Meharry Medical College which concludes that EGCG, an extract from Green tea, may induce apoptosis (cell death) and reduce proliferation of uterine fibroid cells by affecting gene expression. This is the second study from Meharry Medical College on this topic, the first having been released in May 2008. The mechanism studied is in line with recent research indicating that uterine fibroids are correlated with genetic factors and gene expression, evidence for which was examined in a review from the National Institute of Health Sciences, Comparative Pathobiology Group. A study was also released in February 2008 which showed a positive effect of EGCG on fibroids in quail, an animal which is especially prone to these tumors.

Genetic effects of Green Tea on Fibroid Growth

In the study, the EGCG from green tea significantly decreased the expression of the genes PCNA, CDK4, and BCL2(genes which promote growth of fibroid cells) as well as increased the expression of the pro-apoptotic BAX(a gene which promotes cell degeneration in a fibroid cell) in a dose-dependent manner. This indicates that EGCG works along multiple genetic pathways to inhibit fibroid tumor growth.

Fibroids and Hormones : Risk Factors

Factors which are currently thought to promote growth of fibroids are periods of excess estrogen, periods of unopposed estrogen(when there is insufficient progesterone to balance out estrogens), and xenoestrogens (environmental chemicals such as those found in some plastics or pesticides which mimic the effects of estrogen in the body). Risk factors for fibroids are many, and factors such as having an early age of onset of the menses or lack of ovulation give unopposed estrogen more time to stimulate fibroid growth. Risk of fibroids is reduced by having children (also known as the effects of parity- risk is reduced most for women who have several children) which is now thought to be related to ischemic effects on the uterus after birth (reduced blood flow to the uterine tissues and involution of the uterus) which appear to reduce formation and growth of fibroids. Fibroids are more common in women over 40, and this may be related to changes in hormonal mediators during perimenopause, or alternately from 20-30 consecutive years of exposure to estrogen.

Although it has been traditionally thought that estrogen is the only promoter of fibroid growth, research now points to progesterone as a stimulator of fibroid growth. Fibroids contain both progesterone and estrogen receptors which are up and down regulated during the menstrual cycle. A key to stimulation of fibroid growth may be in conversion enzymes. Studies point to increased expression of an enzyme known as aromatase in women who have fibroids. Aromatase is an enzyme which converts androgens to estrogen (androgens are male hormones, and the precursors to estrogen). This information indicates that treatments which work at the level of this enzymatic activity (such as aromatase inhibitors - to be discussed on a future blog post) can bring more balance to the effects of of estrogen on tissues, especially if started at an early stage of the condition.

Fibroids: The Liver and Diet

Another factor which can cause growth of fibroids relates to the clearance of hormones and conversion of estrogen to weaker forms by the liver. If liver function is poor, more estradiol will circulate and increase growth of the fibroids. Dietary factors which are also linked to risk of fibroids include low fibre diets (fibre improves elimination of hormones). Higher fat and lower fibre diets have also been linked to higher levels of estradiol according to a meta analysis of date from the Journal of the National Cancer institute, and obesity is also correlated with a higher risk for fibroids (androgens are converted to estrogens in adipose tissue). Green tea also has thermogenic (fat burning) effects according to multiple studies (effects beyond that of the caffeine it contains), so it may be helpful for women with fibroids from this standpoint as well.

A study from Japan indicated that green tea and other caffeinated beverages reduced serum estrogen by increasing sex hormone binding globulin, which is also of benefit in reducing the rate of estrogen stimulated fibroid growth. Although other caffeinated beverages such as coffee also appeared to increase sex hormone binding globulin, only green tea was correlated to a day 11 lower serum estradiol.

Although more research is needed in this area before firm conclusions can be drawn on this topic, it seems that EGCG has multiple benefits for women who are at risk for fibroid development. Though unlikely to shrink larger developed fibroids to a great extent, it may have a role to play in earlier stages and in prevention of these benign yet troublesome growths.

Matcha Tea: For Renowned Cancer Fighting Catechin EGCg Found Only In Green Tea
Not all Antioxidants are Created Equal
Antioxidants are found in many foods including fruits and vegetables. There are many types of antioxidants, however, the class known as catechins are only found in green tea, and these maybe the most potent of all. And of the catechins, EGCg (epicgallocatechin gallate) is the catechin with broadest and most potent cancer-fighting properties. Sixty percent of the catechin content of matcha tea is EGCg. One gram of matcha contains 105 mg of total catechin content, and roughly 61% is EGCg.

  • Catechins are antioxidants only found in green tea
  • 60% of catechin content of matcha is EGCg
  • EGCg is the catechin with the broadest and most potent cancer-fighting properties
  • Dosage is concentrated in matcha powder, when compared to brewed loose leaf tea
How much EGCg is in a single serving?
One gram of matcha contains 105 mg of total catechin content, and roughly 61% is EGCg. A single serving size is typically anywhere from 2-4 grams or 1 tsp to 1T, depending on your preference.
Matcha's ORAC Rating
ORAC is a measure of antioxidant efficacy of a particular food.The ORAC rating of matcha tea is1300 umoleTE/g compared to 105 for pomegranate fruit and 93 for wild blue berries. The USDA recommends 3,000- 5,000 ORAC units per day. One teaspoon of matcha tea, about 2 grams, contains approxiamately 2600 ORAC units.
Matcha Green Tea vs. Fruit and Berry Juice
While fruit juices can be high in antioxidants, they tend to contain a lot of sugar and calories, and virtually no fiber. So enjoy them in moderation - or better yet, opt for the whole fruit, which provides antioxidants and fiber with fewer calories. <!--[endif]-->
EGCg Studied for Possible Breast Cancer Therapies
In a 2008 study conducted by researchers at the University of Mississippi researchers found that consuming EGCG significantly inhibits breast tumor growth in female mice. Researchers believe these findings can help lead to new therapies for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer in women.

Lupus, is an auto-immune disease with inflammation symptoms. Researchers have found that incidents of lupus are lower in countries that consume green tea as a primary beverage. Numerous studies have concluded that green tea helps reduce inflammation. One study conducted by the University of Michigan, and presented at the Experimental Biology 2007 conference in Washington, D.C., revealed that green tea can help people with rheumatoid arthritis prevent joint damage and inflammation. Specifically they discovered that EGCG blocked two important molecules which cause the bone breakdown in rheumatoid arthritis-affected joints. Experts agree those consuming green tea daily will alleviate inflammation. Also TURMERIC is wonderful as well for inflammation and is also available in Cee Cee's E-store.
 

Matcha and Chronic Atrophic Gastritis
 
 
Gastrointestinal tract effects

In the gastrointestinal tract, matcha green tea was found to activate intracellular antioxidants and reduce inflammation. High green tea consumption may prevent chronic atrophic gastritis. Also, green tea may help reduce inflammation associated with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, the two types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).


MATCHA TEA AND LONG LIFE!

Results of a Chinese study published in the May 2002 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that men and women who are long-time tea drinkers do seem to have an advantage in terms of bone mineral density over those who don't habitually drink tea. That's not the only recent good news about tea. A study from HarvardMedicalSchool showed that tea drinkers among heart attack patients might survive longer than those who drink something else. Study participants who drank at least 14 cups of tea per week were 44 percent less likely to die than those who didn't drink tea; moderate tea drinkers (those who consumed fewer than 14 cups per week) were 28 percent less likely to die for up to four years than those who didn't drink tea. Green herbal teas have a better chance of not getting cancer at all, or prolonging their lifespan with cancer, than those who do not drink it.

MATCHA AND HALITOSIS
AND TOOTH DECAY

Have you been battling with halitosis without success? Matcha tea may actually be able to help you. Drinking Matcha green tea is a totally natural way to rid your mouth of bad smells which cause you so much embarrassment.

Kill the Bacteria - Kill the Bad Breath

The reason bad breath occurs is because bacteria grows on your tongue and gum pockets.It's this bacteria which gives off a foul-smelling odor known as halitosis or bad breath. Many people turn to mints to help cover up the smell but 1) they don't kill the bacteria which causes the bad breath and .What makes tea so wonderful is that it kills the bacteria in your mouth which in turn kills the smell. Studies show that it's the polyphenols in some teas which suppress the bacteria.

Other Health Benefits of Tea

Along with keeping odor-causing plaque and bacteria at bay you will also be preventing colds, dental problems and throat infections. You can't say that about most over-the-counter products!

Of course, you should continue to brush your teeth and floss everyday as per usual. Tea doesn't replace your normal oral hygiene routine, it simply compliments it. By drinkingMatcha green tea in-between brushing your teeth, you can help solve your bacteria and plaque problems keeping those nasty smells away.


GENERAL FACTS ABOUT MATCHA!
 
As my regular readers will know, I am a great fan of green tea and if you want the absolute best for your health then you need Japanese matcha which is a very rare and special green tea. It is full of antioxidants, helps raise energy levels, elevates mood, lowers cholesterol, is anti-ageing, can help with weight loss, help prevent heart disease and boost your metabolism by up to 40 per cent!

The best matcha comes from the renowned Nishio region in Japan, where the tea leaves are grown under cover for the last few weeks to produce the maximum amount of amino acids and the chlorophyll that gives it the green colour. The leaves are then dried and very slowly ground by a granite stone to a very fine powder, which is then packed and sealed immediately to lock in all the nutrients. Just a quarter teaspoon of this bright green powder gives you the same health benefits as equivalent of 15 cups of regular green tea and contains 70 times the antioxidants of orange juice, 90 times the beta carotene of spinach plus vitamins A, B and C.

What more could you want? The thing I particularly like about green tea is that it is both energizing and calming and because matcha is a fine powder that you mix with hot or cold liquid there is no waste as you have the whole leaf in powder form.

MATCHA COMPARED TO REGULAR GREEN TEAS
 

DR. ANDRE WEIL AND MATCHA!
 
 
Hereis what Dr. Andrew Weil, one of the world's most famous experts on natural medicine, has to say about matcha green tea:
"In addition to providing trace minerals and vitamins (A, B-complex, C, E, and K), matcha is rich in catechin polyphenols - compounds with high antioxidant activity. These compounds offer protection against many kinds of cancer, help prevent cardiovascular disease and slow the aging process. They also reduce harmful cholesterol in the blood, stabilize blood sugar levels, help reduce high blood pressure and enhance the resistance of the body to many toxins. The most important polyphenol in matcha is EGCG (epigallo-catechin gallate), which is the subject of many medical studies. Matcha has a significant amount of dietary fiber and practically no calories."

COMMON MATCHA QUESTIONS
What is matcha?
Matcha is essentially a powdered form of green tea and is served by mixing
with either warm water or milk.
It is also grown and harvested in a slightly different way to standard green tea in that it is shade grown for the final few months to allow the leaves to fill with chlorophyll and exude a vibrant green colour.Only the finest tea buds are hand picked then stone ground to make Matcha.
It can take up to one hour to grind 30 grams of Matcha!

Does matcha contain caffeine?

Yes, it does. A recommended 1g serving contains 34mg of caffeine. This is compared to 70-180mg for a cup of coffee. Most experts consider 200-300mg of caffeine per day to be an acceptable level.

The 'type' of caffeine in matcha is different to that of caffeine in coffee, called Theophylline, which gives you a much more sustainable release of energy throughout the day. We recommed no more than 4 cups a day and to not drink before going to bed or during late hours for better sleep.

Matcha has the lowest caffeine level of any green tea. It's the L-theanine in matcha that makes people alert. The body can't absorb it as quickly as caffeine, so that pick-me-up last for eight hours. At the same time L-theanine acts on the brain to relax and focus people. One cup of matcha contains 70 times the antioxidants of a cup of orange juice and 9 times the beta carotene of a serving of spinach. The entire matcha plant is ground into a powder. Each cup is individually blended by hand into water that is heated to a precise temperature. Because consumers are actually drinking the plant - instead of just water infused with its flavor as in the case other tea - matcha promotes regular bowel movement.

How can I determine the quality of matcha?

Determine by color. The greener the color of your matcha powder, the sweeter the taste of the Matcha. Also higher quality Matcha will have a fuller and fresher flavor than lower quality Matcha. Higher quality Matcha will also froth up nicely when it's whisked.

How does Matcha work for weight loss?

We recommend that if you're trying to lose 10-15 pounds, one big glass a day will be just fine. You do not want to overdo it, or go to fast for that particular weight goal. So take it slow! If you're trying to lose 20-40 pounds, we recommend around 2 glasses a day. For 50 pounds or more, we recommend 3 glasses or more.You can also trip up your system which might be good for weight loss by not doing the matcha at the exact same time every day or drinking different amounts every day. For instance, one day drink 1 matcha, another day do three and the next day, drink only two matchas. That way your bodily systems never get use to it and will work the matcha more effectively. One usually lose about 1-3 pounds a week depending on their good or bad eating habits and diet.

Are there any foods or a diet you recommend while on Matcha?

There is no special diet! You may want to cut out sodas, heavy breads and extra sugary snacks. We recommend that you visit Cee Cee's"Weight Loss Foods"tab on her website. Just click on www.TinyTummyNow.com and look for that tab on the blue side menu bar. Also exercise is always a plus!

How much Matcha should I consume in a day?

It really depends on personal preference. We recommend you should have no more than 4-5 cups a day (to keep within the lower recommended caffeine limit of 200mg), but drinking just one cup in the morning would be just fine you will still get the health benefits that matcha delivers. We recommend that you drink at least one large glass a day. But if you have a lot of weight to lose, go for two to three glasses a day before 4pm.
How long does one tin of Matcha usually last?
If you do it aggressively, which means every day, it will usually last about a month give or take, depending on how many glasses a day that you consume and if you use a liitle more matcha than a half a teaspoon when you make your glass/cup of matcha.
Is Matcha an appetite suppressant?
It is for many of our patrons. Some people drink a big glass of matcha
in the morning and that is enough until lunch. But we suggest you go ahead and eat a nice lunch and a light dinner before 7:30 p.m.
Can I drink Matcha while on blood pressure medicine?
Yes you can! Plenty of customers are getting fabulous results! But, It is always good
to check with your doctor.
Can I drink Matcha while I am on the Weight Watchers program?
Sure you can! It will only help because it is all natural! Matcha is great for all weight control plans and would be much better than drinking Crystal Light which has aspartame! Research the dangers of aspartame!
When should I order again?
When you are down to half of your first can...that is the best time to order another can. Our patrons really dislike running out of their matcha!
How does the shipping work?
There is no expedited shipping on the matcha tea. There is a flat shipping rate of $5.95 on all orders no matter the size of the order. It will arrive to you about ten business days (give or take) upon receipt of your order. Whether you order from my online store or order from me in person, everyone must wait for the tea to arrive from overseas. It does ship in FRESH from overseas, so please be patient...you will love the quality!
Does it have to be 1/2 teaspoon per cup of matcha?
You can do a little more or a little less matcha...this will make your cup of matcha stronger or
weaker.
How much of your Organic Indian Cinnamon do I place in the Matcha drink?
It is to taste. Just a pinch... or even 1/3 of a teaspoon is fine. For those with diabetes and cholesterol, it is best to use more than less, as the cinnamon can help with those issues.
Can I use any honey with Matcha?
We suggest you use our raw honey (located right here on our on-line store), which is unrefined, never heated. Raw honey should always look like yellow peanut butter not a clear sqeezable liquid. This means almost all of the medicinal properties have been burned out and at that point it is pretty much "liquid sugar!" We recommend our raw honey to patrons with allergies, asthma, cough and/or bronchitis. Use honey with water or 40 calorie almond milk. As 90 calories almond milk along with honey can be too many calories for optimum weight loss.
What kind of sweetener do I use in my Matcha?
We recommend the Vanilla 90-calorie Almond Milk(Sweetened) by BLUE DIAMOND or Cee Cee Michaela's Raw honey which is available right here in our E-store. If you have diabetes we recommend SteviaPlus, or Organic Raw Blue Agave Nectar(Dark color).
*Remember the less sweetener that you use, the less calorie intake which means more weight loss!
What kind of milk is best for Matcha?

We recommend Almond breeze which comes in either the original or vanilla flavor, which comes in 40, 60, 90 calories! The 90-cal Vanilla flavor, although is sweeter has more calories than the original. So please choose according to your liking of sweetness.

Almond Breeze is available at almost any local grocery store.

Almond Breeze is a non-dairy beverage made from real almonds, all natural, smooth and creamy with a hint of almonds. Almond Breeze is a great tasting non-dairy beverage without the thin, chalky after taste of rice and soy beverages.




  • Gluten, cholesterol and lactose free
  • Excellent source of calcium, vitamins D & E

  • A refreshing alternative to soy and rice non-dairy beverages

 

 

Can I use any other milk besides almond milk
in my matcha latte?

All are delicious and give you many great vitamins and health benefits!

What time of the day should I drink matcha?
We think it is best to drink matcha in the morning and early afternoon. Due to the caffeine content, it is not advisable to drink matcha just before bed .
What is the best temperature to serve matcha?

You can serve matcha cold or with hot water or hot almond milk. To receive the greatest health benefits, make sure your make your matcha at 70 degrees. If you don't have a temperature-controlled kettle, be sure to switch off the kettle before it reaches boiling point. Very hot water can burn the health properties out of the Matcha.

Why am I left with lumps of matcha in the bottom of my cup?

This happens when the matcha powder is not mixed properly. Always use a whisk to mix, do not stir with a spoon or fork. Your whisk will make for a perfectly smooth, frothy and lump free cup of matcha. Keep checking your whisk for little lumps and keep whisking until there are no more lumps left in your whisk.
Can I whisk it with a fork or an American whisk?
NO! It is best to use our genuine, Japanese, bamboo whisk for best results of no clumping! This whisk beats it and makes it super smooth and is the original Japanese style of preparation! The more you whisk matcha, the sweeter and frothier it gets. The whisk oxygenates the powder and makes it ready for consuming: to move powerfully through the body!
Can you make matcha ahead of time and store it to drink later?
It is best to whisk a fresh bowl whenever you get the urge for matcha. Matcha is alive! So it is best to make it fresh every single time and drink it right away so that it penetrates quickly in and through the body and is alive and fresh and going for those fat cells.
Can you use hot water with the matcha...I like my tea hot?
Don't ever use boiling water with matcha! Matcha is best brewed using water that has boiled and then let sit for a few moments until it has cooled to about180F/82C, (about 2-3 minutes). Tip: Wash your hands and dip the tip of your finger in your water. If it is nice and warm but does not burn your finger, then your water is ready! This allows for immediate consumption after brewing when the tea is at its peak flavor.
Can you eat Matcha and still lose weight with it?

Consuming matcha as a drink is the best way to lose weight, as it goes quickly through the body and has very few calories in its raw form with just water or almond milk.! However, you can shake a bit of it on top of hot oatmeal or yogurt and just simply stir in. You can also sprinkle some into a smoothie, just mix into a blender with almond milk and a banana ( or other fruit) and mix. All are YUMMY and HEALTHY!

What does matcha green tea taste like?

There are different grades of matcha, which affect the flavor and/or aroma.The lower the grade, the more bitter the matcha becomes. Michaela's matcha is of a very high grade so ours tastes smooth, fresh and a bit sweet. It can taste like an exotoc chai depending on how much of our Organic Indian Cinnamon you use when making your matcha drink.

Is it safe to drink matcha green tea when pregnant?

You will not just go running to the bathroom. Your bowel movement will not be super runny and all that.NO NO NO! But, you will have a bigger, longer shaped, better colored (more olive green brown not DARK BROWN ) bowel movement. And you will go at least once to twice a day if you are not going at all at this time. It gives you an overall better bowel movement because it has fiber and is all natural! These longer movements are what helps to shrink your stomach quickly and help you to feel so much lighter and better!
