The benefits of Matcha are endless. It is high in antioxidants, loaded with Catechin and EGC, boosts memory and concentration, detoxifies, ETC. For a while, however, it was hard for me to drink matcha. The taste can be a bit bitter and I wasn’t totally on board with adding caffeine to my zero-caffeine diet. This changed when I was introduced to Kiwami Greens.
Kiwami Greens is a plant based, nutrient-rich Japanese vegetable powder that is packed with calcium, vitamins B, C, and E, iron, fiber, and folic and amino acids. The ingredients are sourced straight from nature – a simple blend of Young Barley Leaf, Ashitaba, Matcha, and Sencha, creating a delicious, smooth and rich-tasting Aojiru (vegetable juice!) Ashitaba is a very unique plant that’s long been used in traditional Japanese medicine — it’s a rich source of vitamins B1, B2, and B6, dietary fiber, calcium, and vitamin E.
It’s really tasty and although there are countless ways to consume it, it’s perfect in just 5 ounces of water. And it’s sold in extremely convenient individual packets. Greens on the go! 🙂 I’m on a smoothie kick these days, so although it’s nice to drink on its own, I’ve loved incorporating it into my smoothies!
