A Hip and Healthy favourite is Do Matcha green tea.  It is a great way to include skin and immune-supporting compounds in your daily diet.  As green tea powder is actually a food rather than a supplement, it has the potential to be better absorbed and more efficiently utilised by the body. What gives Do Matcha the ‘edge’ though is its high antioxidant content – particularly when in comparison to ordinary green tea. Do Matcha is said to provide up to 137 times more of the antioxidant ‘EGCG’, than ordinary green tea. Antioxidants may help to support improved immune health and skin health by protecting both from cellular damage. Do Matcha also naturally contains the amino acid theanine, which has been shown in research to encourage alpha waves in the brain. This type of brain wave helps to put us in a calmer, more relaxed state. This in turn may also help to support a healthy immune system, as stress and how your body responds to it can have an effect on how your immune system functions. Promoting positive and relaxing alpha waves in the brain may also support our skin, since it has often been shown that skin suffers when we are tired and stressed.

Drinking tea is not only good for the body, it is also good for the soul and can be a sociable affair which in turn boosts our mood.  Why not enjoy a pot of this remedial tea with a group of friends.
