Long winter, lockdown , lack of adventure, less sunlight, few physical contacts, exercise outside at a low level, a lot indoors, a new work and living situation, the fear of getting sick,... No need to say that all the ingredients are present for the famous dip at the end of winter.
And it takes its toll on our bodies and minds. You feel drowsy, passive, lethargic, tired, down. Not exactly what you need to live your best possible life, and be the best possible version of yourself. You no longer want to hide under your fluffy blanket with liters of Ben and Jerry's ice cream and locks of wine to temporarily numb that nasty empty feeling. You no longer want to wrap yourself in self-pity, you are done with it. Point. Take full control of your life again. Please!
But how do you do that concretely?
First and foremost you have to clear your body of all that accumulated junk. That much is certain. Cherry on the cake: an overdose of energy. Yeah right … just search the internet, but you soon can't see the wood for the trees anymore with all those exotic-sounding names of so-called superfoods that seem to push each other before your eyes. An endless range of nutritional supplements beckoning you with expensive words in the most flashy packaging.
Simplicity is beautiful, goes the saying. And that also applies here, with two complete valves for purifying your body and boosting your energy. Because if you choose the crème de la crème , you don't need much. The cream of the crop in detox and energy. Nothing less than that.
Ready to burst with energy?
MMM… MIND BLOWING MATCHA
Matcha is finely ground Japanese green tea, just like other teas from the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. Matcha, however, stands head and shoulders above the rest. Where green tea is called healthy, matcha is a superlative of healthy. What further distinguishes matcha from the usual green tea is the culture. During the production of matcha, the tea leaves are shielded from the sunlight for quite a long time before harvest. Through this process in the shade, the plant compensates for the need for oxygen by producing an unprecedented dose of chlorophyll in the tea leaves, which gives the matcha its famous bright green color.
Matcha has been an integral part of Japanese culture for centuries. The monks in the East knew it all too well: matcha brought them into the right flow for meditation faster. Drinking matcha provides a remarkable ability to concentrate. But that's what coffee does, we can hear you think. Yes… But with matcha you feel alert and focused, without the unpleasant tension symptoms that coffee entails, such as faster breathing, palpitations, headaches, general agitation and sometimes even intestinal discomfort. Matcha therefore offers you the same benefit without the disadvantages of the caffeine from coffee. That is why matcha is also a well-known and popular brew with us today. Pure you drink matcha mixed with warm water and whipped until a subtle layer of foam appears. Matcha is very versatile in use and you will find it in all kinds of forms and dishes. Pure matcha, matcha latte in the coffee bars, a subtle touch of matcha in a healthy bar as a snack, spicy desserts or simply add it to your slow juice or yogurt smoothie. High-quality matcha is green gold and the IT ingredient of the moment. And that is not just that.
BENEFITS OF MATCHA TEA
- PACKED WITH CHLOROPHYL
We already said it; Matcha is made from protected green tea plants. The last 4 weeks before harvest, tarpaulins are pulled over the tea plants to influence the natural process of photosynthesis: as a survival mechanism, the plants compensate for the lack of sunlight through chlorophyll. Because chlorophyll is oxygen . The tea leaves become even greener, which when ground into high quality matcha results in a deep, bright green and chlorophyll-rich tea powder. The extra oxygen of matcha literally and figuratively catches your breath.
- POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANTS
EGCG is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body against free radicals. Small particles from our environment that sneak into the body and also automatically arise in the body when energy is burned. A natural process that constantly takes place in the body in order to stay alive. But those free radicals are unfortunately no wimps; they are harmful to body cells and DNA. And it is precisely this chronic damage to cells or oxidative stress that is one of the main causes of diseases of affluence, the aging of the body and age-related diseases.
With its antioxidant mix, matcha offers a strong counterweight to this harmful process. An antioxidant is a powerful molecule that links to free radicals and neutralizes them so they can't do damage to your cells. Matcha is full of plant compounds called catechins that act as antioxidants in the body. Compared to green tea, you eat the entire tea leaf and thus enjoy much more antioxidants. All this for a healthier version of yourself.
- HEALTHY INTESTINAL FLORA
Matcha is a source of polyphenols . Polyphenols are the healthy substances in plants, vegetables and fruits that contribute to your overall health. Those polyphenols are also in the tea plant (camellia sinensis) and when you absorb them through matcha, they increase the good intestinal bacteria . And since your gut is the center of your health and houses your entire immune system, your resistance is strengthened and potential pathogens have less or no chance. With matcha you also absorb much more polyphenols because you drink the whole tea leaf and not just the water-soluble particles as with the classic green teas.
- FAST METABOLISM
Matcha speeds up your metabolism. In other words, matcha helps you lose weight or stay slim . The unique combination of caffeine and catechins in matcha promote weight loss. Metabolism – the body's combustion mechanism to release energy – gets a massive boost when you drink matcha. In concrete terms, this means that daily calorie burning can greatly increase thanks to matcha. And that your body removes waste faster .
- PURE LIVER AND KIDNEY
Matcha not only accelerates the elimination of waste, as mentioned above, but also activates, purifies and nourishes the liver and kidneys. You could almost say a relaxing massage for the liver and kidneys. After a short night with too much alcohol and too little sleep, matcha is the best you can get . Because matcha rehydrates and thus tempers the hangover, the oxygen content in the blood increases (thanks to the chlorophyll) - so also in your liver and kidney cells. You can say that matcha limits possible liver damage. Not only for the Burgundians among us, but a winner for everyone, because your liver and kidneys work non-stop to purify your body. So they could use some encouragement.
- STABLE BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS
Because you drink the whole tea leaf with matcha, you also absorb the fibers of the tea leaf in addition to antioxidants and polyphenols. These fibers in combination with the high content of antioxidants in matcha are believed to prevent fluctuations in your blood sugar levels. The naturally occurring sugars in matcha also help to keep blood sugar levels stable . An absolute condition is, of course, that you do not drop lumps of sugar or syrup into your matcha.
- STRONG COGNITIVE FUNCTION
Do you have a tough mental challenge ahead of you and can you use full focus and energy? Then don't reach for unhealthy energy drinks chock full of taurine, but sit back and treat yourself to a cup of matcha made with love and attention. Because matcha contains L-theanine , an amino acid that stimulates the production of GABA waves in the brain. GABA is one of the most important neurotransmitters in the brain. It inhibits overactivity of the nerve impulses. For example, your central nervous system calms down and matcha is a strong stress-regulating agent . In addition, matcha combines L-theanine with caffeine, or rather, theine. L-theanine inhibits the effect of theine. With matcha you therefore enjoy an alert and driven feeling, a clear focus, strong memory and fast reaction time, without feeling tense. Can count as a brain booster!
- BEAUTIFUL HAPPINESS
Furthermore, the amino acid L-theanine also ensures that more happiness hormones such as dopamine and serotonin are produced. With shortages you feel rushed, going to sleep becomes an assignment instead of a moment of deep relaxation, depression is your part... In short, a mountain less zest for life and therefore quality of life. So put those sweet hormones that provide your daily shots of happiness in the spotlight. And let's face it, what makes you happier than a cup of bright green organic energy full of antioxidants, oxygen and other good things to give your body and mind a taste of a pure state of well-being and balance ?
CHLORELLA, POWERFUL FRESHWATER QUEEN
Chlorella is a unicellular green algae and naturally lives in tropical freshwater environments. The rather unusual name is derived from the word chlor , which means 'green' in Greek, and ella , which means 'something small' in Latin. A micro-algae, you can indeed call it that, but one with an extraordinarily large effect. In addition to applications in cosmetics and as a biofuel, this “ Jewel of the East ”, as chlorella is sometimes called, is one of the most complete sources of nutrition worldwide. Let's take a closer look at those therapeutic health benefits.
BENEFITS OF CHLORELLA
- BOMB OF NUTRIENTS
Chlorella's nutritional value is eye-catching to say the least, because it is incredibly rich in many important nutrients. Here's the impressive list:
- Complete protein source
- Omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linoleic acid)
- Vitamin B, C, E
- STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM
Your immune system is an essential pawn in fighting viral and bacterial infections. It is a complex system consisting of a large number of cells that all act like an army when a foreign invader wants to enter your body. With its wealth of nutrients and antioxidants such as chlorophyll, chlorella contributes to a well-functioning immune system.
- NATURAL DETOX
Metals such as iron and copper are essential in ultra-small amounts for the optimal functioning of the human body. However, in larger quantities they can unfortunately be toxic if they accumulate over time. For example, an excess of iron can eventually lead to heart failure.
Thanks to its strong detoxifying properties, chlorella supports the body in clearing waste. It lowers the toxic effect of heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium on vital organs such as the brain and liver. Chlorella also reduces the amount of pesticides and toxins that you often ingest unnoticed through, for example, air and water pollution, food and the like, such as dioxin, which is a powerful endocrine disruptor. That is why chlorella is extremely suitable for a purifying detox for the body.
- BETTER ENDURANCE
Chlorella promotes oxygen saturation in the lungs, which significantly improves your endurance. Ideal as support to take your sporting performance to a higher level or to give your general fitness an encouraging pat on the back!
CHOOSE BETWEEN MATCHA OR CHLORELLA? YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL
It should now be crystal clear that both matcha and chlorella are valuable treasures for your health and your energy level.
You may want matcha to:
- Lose some excess fat
- Support your liver

- Boost your mental performance
Or you prefer chlorella because:
