3 HEALTH BENEFITS OF MATCHA STRAWBERRY LATTE
1: Heart Health
With heart disease being one of the main causes of deaths in the UK, maintaining a healthy heart is an essential for a long life. Berries contain many health benefits due to their phytonutrient compounds.
Strawberries are recognized for many active constituents including anthocyanins, catechins, ellagic acid, and quercetin and several scientific reviews proved that the nutrients in strawberries have high antioxidant activity and may lower your risk of heart disease by:
· Improving cell function in your heart
· Stabilizing plaques
· Decreasing the formation of blood clots
Monk fruit, a sweetener used to replace unhealthy sugar, is another ingredient in this latte that could benefit your heart.
Furthermore, green tea has been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol as well as triglycerides reducing the risk of heart disease and strokes.
2: Boosts Brain Health
Do you want to boost your cognitive function? Then add matcha to your daily routine.
This powdered green tea is densely packed with brain-supportive nutrients such as l-theanine, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), and slow releasing caffeine. One study found that consuming matcha green tea can enhance memory and improve attention in the long-run.
Strawberries are another brain food which are worth mentioning. Strawberries are a wonderful source of flavonoids, specifically anthocyanins — which give them their appealing red colour. Anthocyanins are potent antioxidants, and experimental studies have shown that they may improve cognitive decline.
