You may have heard that some foods are higher on the glycemic index than others. Or maybe you’ve heard of “slow” carbs vs “fast” carbs.

Matcha also doesn’t have the same effect on our cortisol levels like coffee, meaning consumption won’t boost your stress hormones (putting you at risk for adrenal fatigue, anxiety, and poor energy).
