This Supercharged Matcha Green Tea is a delicious way to add powerful health benefits to your everyday diet! It’s your gut healing, energy boosting meal in a cup!
I’ve recently started ordering from iHerb. Their service is great and I can order products which are difficult to find here in Spain. The very first product I ordered was grass fed collagen hydrolysate.
I was interested in adding collagen to my diet as a remedy for my joint pain which tends to worsen during the colder months. Collagen is considered the glue that holds our body together and is the most abundant protein in the body.
It is a primary building block of skin, hair, nails, bones, tendons, joints, and cartilage. I add collagen to oatmeal, my post workout shake, muffins, bread you name it.
- Joint pain – gone
- Skin – looks youthful
- Nails – strong & hard
- Hair – growing extra thick and long
You already know that I add coconut oil to my coffee so guess what happened next. I turbo boosted my matcha green tea with coconut oil and collagen to create this Supercharged Matcha Green Tea.
