In addition to the amazing benefits of Paleo Greens, this shake also gets a boost from matcha - the powerhouse of antioxidants and a host of other health benefits. Matcha contains catechins, an antioxidant that helps to lower high blood pressure as well as your LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, reducing your chances of heart disease, heart attack, stroke and other heart related issues. Polyphenols and other antioxidants in matcha may also help protect your cells against cancer as well as reduce inflammation caused by conditions like arthritis. It also might slow the breakdown of cartilage (the tissue that cushions your joints) that arthritis can cause.. Finally, matcha is also a caffeinated drink and will help you to stay awake and focused when you need to be.
