Matcha For Stress
Studies have shown that the amino acid theanine, found in Green tea holds some pretty impressive stress-reducing properties. Matcha may be a great stress-busting choice since matcha powder is known to be especially rich in this amino acid.
One study found that matcha reduced anxiety related to stress, giving up one more reason to whip up a mug of matcha tea to get our day started off on a calmer note!
