These days Matcha’s health and beauty benefits are getting well known globally. Quite often people are more focused on matcha’s weight loss and anti-aging health benefits but… Matcha is also amazing for Strong Bones!
It is important that you look after your bones through exercise but also through your diet…with the use of Matcha
How is Matcha Great for Strong Bones? The Answer is Vitamin K!
The Vitamin K in Matcha can help metabolise calcium and mineralise bones, contributing to bone strengthening. With Vitamin K, you can build stronger bones for a longer period of time!
Matcha is one of the highest Vitamin K-rich foods! The top 2 Vitamin K-rich foods in the world are actually Matcha and Natto, which are both Japanese foods, isn’t it interesting?
One to two teaspoons of Matcha green tea contains the daily recommended intake of Vitamin K1. Which of course makes me very happy because I love matcha and I have it daily!
Why are Strong Bones so Important?
Several studies have shown that supplementation with vitamin K results in improvements in bone health. In fact, new evidence points towards the potential role of this vitamin in:
- Increasing bone mineral density
- Decreasing the risk of fractures in people suffering from oposteoporisis
- Slowing down bone loss for women going through menopause: It is important to look after your bone health as women’s bone density tends to get weaker and there is a decrease in estrogen in the body, which usually helps protect our bones.
Going through Menopause? The Vitamin K1 in Matcha manages the calcium in the body which is very important to maintaining a healthy and stable bone structure.
