The benefits of Matcha
Help you lose weight
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), is a plant compound that has many benefits to your health. EGCG acts as a potent antioxidant in the body that may protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals.
EGCG has also been known to boost your metabolism and burning fat cells. This will therefore aid in weight loss, making it a great daily beverage to have on your weight loss journey.
Improve your skin
Matcha pods are good for improving your skins overall complexion.
This is because matcha is extremely high in vitamin C, which stimulates collagen production, giving your skin a natural plumping and glow.
Rejuvenation water’s Nespresso matcha pods are good as they also have added B vitamins, which promote skin cell turnover.
Especially vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), which can help improve skin tone, make skin more radiant and balance natural oils.
Boost overall health
Not only do they make you look good but matcha pods are good for your health with once again, EGCG being the hero of matcha tea.
Although they are unsure exactly how, studies in a systematic review in 2016, have shown that people who regularly consumed green tea showed a significant reduction in the consumption of lower density lipoprotein (LDL, or ‘bad cholesterol’).
LDL is the type of cholesterol that leads to a build-up of fatty acids in the arteries, which can increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.
Bone strength is also very important for having an active and mobile life.
This is why it is important to take measures that can build your bone strength and reduce your risk of diseases such as osteoporosis.
This is why matcha Nespresso pods are so good. Each Nespresso compatible matcha pod is packed with polyphenols, an antioxidant-packed compound, that may increase bone mineral density.
Does Nespresso make green tea pods?
If you have a Nespresso machine, I'm sure you are wondering if you can use a Nespresso machine to make a matcha latte.
Using a Nespresso machine to make matcha is a super convenient and quick way.
Traditionally, to make matcha you need a delicate bamboo whisk, that needs a lot of care and you whisk the matcha up. This can be messy and is very time consuming to wash, clean and store the bamboo whisk.
Unfortunately, Nespresso do not make green tea pods or Matcha Nespresso pods.
