Win a Box of Teapigs Matcha Green Tea!

It’s competition time again and this month I’m excited to be giving away a box of teapigs Matcha Green Tea! As I’ve mentioned on my blog before, green tea is fantastic for health, especially when consumed on a regular basis! However Matcha green tea has many amazing benefits that other teas just can’t compete with! In fact, just one serving of matcha green tea has the equivalent benefits of 15 cups of standard green tea!

For starters it is incredibly high in antioxidants which are responsible for combating free radicals in the body. This battle against free radicals greatly helps to promote optimum health. Not only are antioxidants fantastic for our insides but they also keep our skin looking fresh and young! A cup of matcha green tea is one of the most effective ways to get a huge dose of these incredible enzymes into your system! In fact, matcha contains 70 times the amount of antioxidants as the same portion of orange juice as well as nine times the amount of a comparative portion of spinach! Add to that a whole host of Vitamins A, B and C!

In today’s hectic world, anything that encourages your body to relax can’t be a bad thing and enhancing feelings of calm is another great benefit of matcha. This type of green tea has been used throughout time by Buddhists and Daoists during meditation. The amino acid responsible for this sense of calm is called L-Theanine. This amino acid also helps to improve your memory, increase your concentration as well as boosting energy levels and endurance.

On top of all of these amazing advantages, research has also shown that matcha can increase your metabolic rate which in turn helps the body burn more fat than it usually would.

Win a Radiance Cleanse Gift Box!

As I’ve discussed before on my blog, I believe juice cleansing to be an amazing way to detox your body and restore the natural balance. The nutritional value of drinking fresh organic fruit and vegetable juices is incredible. When incorporated into your diet frequently, these juices can soon make noticeable changes to your energy levels and overall wellbeing.

Making your own juices is fantastic fun but can be time consuming. If you want to give your body some juice love but simply don’t have the time, then a Radiance Cleanse delivery can do all of the legwork for you!

What is a Radiance Cleanse?

beauty-diagonalFounded in 2009, by Clare Neill and Christina Agnew, Radiance is the creation of these two women who know firsthand the dramatic nutritional benefits of juicing. Having both personally experienced the life changing effects of a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, they pioneered the UK’s first organic juice cleanse programme that is available to be delivered anywhere in the country. They use only the highest quality, raw organic products to create their amazingly delicious juices.
