Matcha Misto + Collagen FAQ

How do I make it? 

We created withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen as a ready-to-mix beverage. Simply add 1-2 scoops to one cup of hot water and stir.

What does ‘hot’ water mean?

When preparing withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen, the water should be just under boiling. A good way to achieve this is to boil water, then let it sit for 1-2 minutes before pouring. If the water is too hot, it will scorch the matcha and leave a slightly bitter flavour.

Does withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen contain carrageenans?

Our Matcha Misto + Collagen has been made with carrageenan free organic coconut milk.

Does withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen contain withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen? 

Yes, Matcha Misto + Collagen contains withinUs TruMarine Collagen. Each scoop of Matcha Misto + Collagen contains 2.4 grams of collagen, about half the daily recommended serving.

For an extra collagen boost, you can add a 5g scoop of withinUs Trumarine™ Collagen for healthy hair, skin, nails and joints. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is a hydrolyzed peptide, and benefits are not lost by mixing the product into hot beverages such as our Matcha Misto.

Is withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen gluten-free?

Yes. Matcha is naturally gluten-free. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is sourced exclusively from marine life and also contains no gluten, and our organic coconut milk is gluten free.

Is withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen sweetened/flavoured?

No. We do not add any sweetner, preservatives, flavouring, or colouring to Matcha Misto + Collagen. Coconut milk has a naturally subtle sweet taste, but no additional sugar is added to this product.

Is there a caffeine-free version of withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen?

No. By decaffeinating any matcha the nutrients and antioxidants are lost.

How much caffeine does withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen have?

One cup of withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen contains approximately 1/4 the amount of caffeine when compared to a cup of coffee. withinUs Grade A matcha's caffeine effect lasts longer due to the amino acid, L-Theanine (no insulin spikes, no jitters). L-Theanine has a calming, relaxing effect and slows the release of tea-caffeine.

How is the caffeine in withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen different from the caffeine in coffee?

The caffeine in Matcha Misto + Collagen and the caffeine in coffee have been shown to have a very different effect on the body. Because the caffeine in matcha is combined with phytonutrients, antioxidants, and amino acids, it is released slower into the body. This means a more pleasant energy boost and an increase in focus lasting up to 6 hours with no jitters, as opposed to an immediate and short-lived “caffeine rush”. The caffeine time-release effect inhibits the sudden release of insulin meaning no crashes, and does not stimulate the release of cortisol (stress hormone) as coffee does. The nutrients accompanying the caffeine in matcha also means that it is gentler on your stomach than the caffeine in coffee.

How do I store withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen?

Matcha Misto + Collagen is best if kept out of heat, air, moisture and light. Once opened, it is recommended to consume within 60 days.

By combining withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen and withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen, are the benefits of either product lost?

Not at all. In fact combining withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen and withinUs Grade A matcha is a fantastic way to get your recommended daily intake of antioxidants and collagen for skin, hair, nail, and joint health. Both products have amino acids that are integral for overall health and have proven anti-aging benefits. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is in hydrolyzed peptide form, and benefits are not lost by mixing the product into withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen.

Can I drink my withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen cold?

It is possible to make Matcha Misto + Collagen with cold water. We recommend using a blender to help the coconut milk fully dissolve.

Can I ingest withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen while pregnant or breastfeeding?

While withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen consists of naturally sourced ingredients that have no known side effects, we advise all moms-to-be to consult with their health care practitioner prior to use.

The good news is that many of our customers use withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen postpartum while breastfeeding and they have found that it helps diminish "pregnancy mask"/ melasma, and that skin becomes firmer and more hydrated. After pregnancy many women also find that their hair or nails become thinner and more brittle. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen replenishes and restores collagen and helps hair to grow thicker and nails to become healthier and stronger.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and you have any concerns, it is recommended that you consult with your health care practitioner prior to use.
