Matcha and Immunity





Before the last 2-3 years, no one really cared much about immunity. It was more about health and wellness overall. However, the playing field has now changed greatly, because everyone is very concerned with "immunity" in light of what we have seen over the past 24 months.

So what is Immunity?

Immunity is the body’s ability to resist harm. Every day we are surrounded by and breathe in harmful germs, bacteria and viruses. The key to living amongst these harmful pathogens is to create the strongest defense system possible. We help to control our immune system through our daily choices. 

Choosing a healthy lifestyle isa key to preventative nutrition…If you want to create a shield that is constantly fighting for and protecting you then one of the most important decisions you can make is what to put in your body!  We all need to be much more pro-active. 

And, what is being proactive?

Glad you asked. Being proactive with your health and immune system means you are taking control. God gave us these incredible bodies which are designed to heal itself but we have to choose to give it the right tools! Take care of your body now before it completely breaks down!

We have carefully and purposefully crafted top quality products to make certain that the immune system is well taken care of and able to run at its best. The powerful combination of Matcha green tea and Chaga mushroom will keep you strong, youthful, and prepared to fight any attack on the immune system....while being powerfully nutritious and tasting absolutely delicious.

Matcha and Chaga are known to be a the leading adaptogens that are antibacterial, antiviral and anti-oxidant.

What is antibacterial? Simply put, antibacterial means against bacteria. Most people know that bacteria is an unwanted and potentially dangerous substance. Some of our greatest tools ever created to fight against the harmful bacteria that lodges in our body is nature. Many plants and incredible superfoods are specifically designed to attack and destroy the foreign bacteria in our body. 

What is antiviral? Antiviral is an agent that fights against viruses. These agents or tools are able to inhibit the viruses ability to spread and reproduce in the body. Nature once again has provided the best shield to protect the body from the spread of viruses…powerful herbs and superfoods. 

What is anti-oxidant? The best Antioxidants are substances designed by nature which act as shields to protect the health and strength of our cells. Antioxidants neutralize the dangerous free radicals that co-exist in our body. Free radicals are a part of our lives and it is a challenge to keep them in check, because of the environment we live in;  from pollution and second-hand smoke to the constant bombardment of UV Rays. This is why it is essential to consume daily as many antioxidants as possible. Chaga and matcha are some of the top sources of antioxidants on the planet! 

Matcha and Chaga are two of the most powerful adaptogens in existence. Why are they so superior? 

Chaga contains 29 different beta-glucans which have been found to support the immune system. Also the antioxidant levels in Chaga are off the chart.  Chaga contains more antioxidants than any other food on the planet! One serving of Chaga extract is equivalent to the antioxidant level of 10 pounds of blueberries and 12 pounds of pomegranate! Drinking Chaga daily is like wearing a "hazmat" suit 24/7!

Matcha is an anti-microbial. It contains potent anti-biotics and anti-virals, lending itself to the prevention and assisting with the treatment of many ailments, including influenza, colds or food poisoning.  Analysis shows that Matcha contains higher antioxidant levels on a per gram basis compared to almost all natural fruits and vegetables. And ORAC test results prove that one gram of organic Matcha ceremonial green tea contains 1,384 ORAC units.  When compared to other antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables as well as other leading superfoods, organic Matcha ceremonial green tea clearly stands above the rest.

*ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity. This test method was developed by the USDA and Tufts University to assess the antioxidant potency of foods and beverages. Higher numbers contains more antioxidant affects to our body.

Matcha and Chaga are incredible superfoods that are extremely high in antioxidants, and are possibly the most powerful adaptogens on the planet.  While they are phenomenal individually, what happens when they are combined is almost magical. Chaga mushroom has the unique ability to enhance the effectiveness and help activate the beneficial compounds in other superfoods. In simple terms, Chaga is the lit fuse that charges everything it combines with! Matcha works more effectively when combined with Chaga… it’s a synergistic relationship!
