Matcha tea is very marmite, You either love it or you hate it. I personally am OBSESSED with it. It makes me feel so good and incredibly energetic when I need it most. I usually wouldn’t be so bothered in letting people know I love a certain drink but, this is slightly different.
Ever since I was 13, I’ve been suffering from horrible migraines, that literally take a whole day out of my life. If I wake up with one, then that’s it, my whole day is confined to my bed and the only sort of remedy I’ve found is to just be unconscious. I can eat anything or drink anything, as my migraine will just not allow it to stay down there. I’m sure some of you can relate and trust me and I am with you and feel your pain.
Myself nor a doctor has never been able to pinpoint what’s causing it? is it too much dairy, not enough water? We just don’t know.
So I started drinking matcha tea. I’m a big fan of herbal tea, in all kinds of flavors anyway. So I decided to do the occasional shot of matcha when I felt slightly peaky wouldn’t be too much of a problem. The first few times, around 20 minutes of drinking it, I had this really positive high, physically and mentally. I really don’t know how to describe it, I just felt really good and loved it. My energy levels went up, and I felt incredibly proactive, whether I was working or hitting the gym. I didn’t feel tired.
And combining my matcha tea with water, my headaches were not so frequent. Now it could be a coincidence but I choose to believe, these two factors were helping me.
So this is watch Matcha tea does:
- Boosts metabolism and burns calories
- Detoxifies effectively and naturally
- Calms the mind and relaxes the body
- Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium (Source)
And I think these factors, may have been what my body was screaming out for. Matcha brings this high sense of relaxation and it should not be overlooked. Matcha is just a really pure form of green tea and I think it tastes the same or sometimes, the taste is really minimal (depending on which brand you go for)
So if you get migraines and are looking for some form of relief, try matcha! Its only healthy for you and I really think it improves your wellbeing.
I’m also working on creating a monthly newsletter (Starting in January) with social media and self-care tips and tricks I’ve found that works for me. These are two of my favourite topics to talk about so I think combining them together, will be a lovely little dose of news.
