Matcha is high in antioxidants that as we know help protect the cells in our bodies against damage and oxidation that occurs as we age. Foods that are considered high in antioxidants are called “superfoods”.

It is vital to our daily health to consume antioxidants from food, matcha, or even supplements if there is a chance you are not getting enough. “Eat the rainbow” is always the best choice. Matcha can be made in a drink or even used to bake cookies, breads, and other delicious baked items. Adding matcha is adding health benefits that taste so delicious. This green powder is responsible for assisting in weight loss, lowering cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. When you drink matcha, and eat a sensible diet on a daily basis, then you are more than halfway there to a healthier you. 

Matcha is also known to provide an energy boost, unlike coffee, it is a boost that is here to stay and won't give you a crash. With only ⅓ the amount of caffeine in coffee, you will feel naturally energized and with absolutely no jitters, why not?! 

If you are feeling anxious, matcha will help with that too. Ceremonial grade matcha contains high levels of L-theanine that is linked with calming properties. 

Wheatgrass is also up there in health benefits. It contains Vitamins A, E, C, K and B6. These vitamins help to clear the skin of any impurities and breakouts. The vitamin C assists the skin in producing new collagen. Wheatgrass is good for someone that suffers from stomach bloat and someone that has any digestion issues. It is good for cleaning out the toxins that can cause discomfort and of course, bloat. 

If you are needing to shed a few pounds, wheatgrass can also assist with that. When you consume this superfood on a regular basis, you will notice that you are less hungry. That is because the large burst of nutrients and fiber will trick your body into thinking that your tummy is full. 

Conclusion: What's Better? Matcha or Spirulina?

At the end of the day, you can have the best of both worlds. You can have your ceremonial grade matcha and you can have the wheatgrass. These two superfoods are very similar but also very different as mentioned above in the article. So why make a choice of either or? Consume and enjoy them both:)
