Matcha is one of the major trends in the nutrition branch. It comes from Asia and does not only taste good but also has a lot of benefits:
- detoxifies your body
- high in antioxidants
- improves your skin
- stimulates metabolism
- increases energy level
- and many more
I got the chance to try out some matcha products from Unicity, they sent me a package with 4 different flavors, 4 shakers and some coffee too!
Usage: Just mix the powder with 300ml water and that’s basically it.
All these different matcha packages have different benefits:
UNICITY MATCHA CHI- OKA BLEND FOR NATURAL FOCUS:
- enhances your mood
- helps to build collagen
- increases energy level
- pleasant in stress situations
This one had a taste of green apple which was definitely not a favorite! I mixed it with water only and it was just too sweet, but with milk it tastes a little bit better. It tastes very sweet and the green apple tastes a little bit artificial to me, but maybe it’s only because I just don’t like the taste of green apple.
UNICITY MATCHA ENERGY:
- promotes your physical endurance
- supports your metabolism
- contributes to collagen cultivation
- reduces tiredness and exhaustion
- supports a clean detoxification
- provides body and mind with more energy
- supports weight control
This one tastes pretty good but mixing it with some raspberries and a banana tastes even better. I like to drink it during studying or at night when I get tired and still have to study, it did help me to concentrate better.
UNICITY MATCHA X:
- burns fat 24/7
- Support against cellulite
- regulates appetite
- reduces ravenousness
- optimal for competitive sports
- reduces regeneration period
- beneficial in stress situations
The matcha x ones were my favorite and I really noticed a difference, when I drank it I wasn’t craving for sweets for a whole day. This one also tastes sweet but I feel like the powder has a little bit of cinnamon in it and it is easier to drink than the one with green apple. I also mixed this powder into my regular smoothies and it tastes pretty good. I didn’t know first that you can mix these powders with other ingredients except from water, but you can. What I do is just to cut some strawberries and a banana and add water and the matcha powder and blent it well. I like to drink this after my workouts.
The white bags are for mornings and the black ones are for afternoons. The Unicity Matcha X AM provides you with more energy through the day and Unicity Matcha X PM supports fat burning and blocks fat intakes.
REMEMBER: ONLY drinking it doesn’t help you to loose weight! You have to do sports too and eat healthy , at least you shouldn’t only eat fast food.
Although they say they only have 2 g of sugar in each bag, it tastes very sweet. I also didn’t like the foam after shaking the powder with the water but if you drink it as a smoothie, the foam disappears.
All of them taste sweet, but adding the powder to a smoothie tastes very very good! The Matcha bag for natural focus is intensively sweet and has a strong taste of green apple, so I didn’t try all the bags, but the other two I can definitely recommend.
What do you think about matcha? And have you had any experience with it? I would love to know in the comments!
