For thousands of years, people have turned to plants to stay healthy. One of the most well-known ones is green tea, which is revered for its antioxidants and ability to support the body’s immune response.* In the United States, perhaps the most well-known herb for wellness is echinacea, a vibrantly pink flower that is native to North America.
For hundreds of years, Native Americans have turned to echinacea for coughs, congestion and sore throats.* Best when sipped at the first signs of illness, there have been more than 350 scientific studies of its beneficial effects, many showing that it may shorten the duration of a cold.*
Matcha is simply green tea that has been ground into a fine powder and then blended into hot water. Since the entire tea leaf is consumed, all of green tea’s incredible mind-body benefits multiply. Matcha contains compounds called polyphenols, catechins and flavonoids, which have antioxidants and are believed to help support the immune system both in sickness and in health.
Many people already turn to a hot cup of tea when they’re feeling under the weather, but perhaps ones featuring matcha and echinacea should be in everyone’s kitchen as well.
