The benefits of a daily matcha shot
Green tea is known to have a number of health benefits, especially when it comes to detoxing. However, steeping green tea in hot water is not necessarily the best way to get the most out of this natural powerhouse. Having a daily shot of matcha green tea could provide you with a greater concentration of all the beneficial green tea compounds.
Water is only able to extract a small percentage of all the goodness that is held within the green tea inside a tea bag. This means that you aren't actually making the most of all the antioxidants found within the tea. However, consuming it in powder form means that you are getting all of the goodness possible out of it.
Matcha is made of stone ground leaves, creating a powder that contains everything that you would lose if you were drinking tea brewed from bags. A small shot of matcha can help to give you a powerful shot of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids that can provide a boost to you during the day, as well as elevating your overall health in the long run.
A single serving of matcha contains about the same benefits as ten cups of brewed green tea, which is why it has been a popular option for centuries.
As well as providing a powerful dose of antioxidants, which can help with clearing the skin, reducing free radicals and cutting down inflammation, matcha has been found to aid with weight loss. A study in the US found that the green tea powder can help the body to burn off more calories, meaning it is a great pre-workout drink.
Matcha green tea also contains amino acids that serve to both boost and calm your body, resulting in you feeling relaxed and energised at the same time. This can last for a number of hours, which makes a shot of matcha the perfect way to start your day.
Even if you don't like the taste of green tea, matcha is the perfect option. A small shot still tastes the same as a cup of green tea - if not stronger - but you need only a small amount at a time so don't have to put up with the taste throughout the day.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
