It is rich in fiber and contains vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium. Matcha powder has an abundance of L-Theanine which is a rare amino acid that promotes relaxation and may help inhibit side effects from the natural caffeine found in green tea leaves. Matcha powerful cleansing and detoxifying properties are attributed to its high chlorophyll content.
