Is Matcha or Turmeric right for you?
"One cup of Matcha is equivalent to drinking 10 cups of green tea, providing 137 times more antioxidants, which may reduce cell damage and help prevent chronic disease"
"When using the whole root, turmeric needs to be paired with other agents that enhance absorption, such as piperine (black pepper). This helps get it into the bloodstream, as well as the anti- inflammatory properties delivered systemically.Consuming 1.5 teaspoons of turmeric powder a day or finely grated turmeric root with food has been shown to help with inflammation, such as arthritis and digestive issues, yet also has cognitive benefits."
