Matcha has been a favorite lately. A lot of desserts and recipes have been using it as their key ingredient. Aside from tasting good, we always hear of its health benefits. But what is it that makes this particular green tea a top beverage pick? A nutritional consulatant from The Biggest Loser, Farah Fahad, breaks down the benefits we get from drinking matcha. (via Byrdie.com)

  1. It can give you nice and glowing skin.

Having 137 times more antioxidants than a regular green tea, matcha can help protect your skin from ultraviolet radiation. It can boost blood flow, too, giving you a rosy and natural glow.

  1. It helps you stay relaxed and alert.

Matcha contains five times more L-theanine than regular tea. L-theanine helps you relax and boost your brain power, making you more alert and calm at the same time.

  1. It strengthens your memory. 

L-theanine also improves your memory, which helps you learn and perform better.
