Did you know that both matcha and collagen have immune boosting properties?Combine the two and you get the ultimate immune boosting 'power couple'!
New to collagen and/or matcha? We outline the extensive list of benefits each product provides below, as well as provide an insight on the products and why you should consider using them.
withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen
Whether you are an athlete and want to reduce join pain and improve your post workout recovery, or you are looking to improve your skin health by increasing hydration and elasticity - you need to learn more about marine collagen peptides.
Collagen is the main structural protein in the body, making up 75% of the skin’s composition. Starting in our mid-twenties, our body’s ability to produce collagen decreases. There are other factors that slow collagen production in the body such as poor nutrition, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption. This decrease in collagen in the body is one of the main reasons for aches and pains in our joints and bones, hair thinning, fine lines and wrinkles.
The benefits of withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen are vast and are experienced differently by everyone depending on what their body needs. TruMarine® is clinically proven to activate the production of collagen within your body, thus slowing the aging process and improving overall health. After 4-6 weeks of taking 5g of TruMarine® per day, you will notice the benefits - whether it helps you feel stronger, reduces joint pain or improves skin elasticity and moisture levels - it will be sure to improve your overall health and create a natural and healthy glow from the inside-out.
Immune boosting benefits:
withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen contains high concentrations of Lysine.
Lysine is an essential amino acid - meaning that your body needs it, but cannot produce it on its own. It is an immune-system booster as it helps build antibodies and has important antiviral properties.
Collagen also helps to strengthen your organ linings, including the lining of your stomach and intestines. Having a strong stomach lining helps ensure that your body is effectively absorbing nutrients, which in turn keeps your immune system functioning in a healthy way.
Why marine collagen?
Marine collagen is the highest grade of collagen available, due to its purity and bioavailability. withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen is Non-GMO Project verified and is sourced from the scales (not skin) of sustainably caught, wild fish. Frequent testing by Health Canada ensures that our product is free of heavy metals and pollutants (it is also FDA approved).
withinUs TruOrganic™ Matcha
The next “IT” superfood in the withinUs™ lineup we want to talk about it TruOrganic™ Matcha. TruOrganic™ Matcha is an antioxidant powerhouse, containing nearly 7 times the amount of antioxidants as goji berries. It provides your body with all the nutrients available in the green tea leaf (including fibre, chlorophyll and phytonutrients), as you are consuming the entire leaf when drinking matcha. Although it has less caffeine than a cup of coffee, matcha provides a steady energy boost and also has a calming effect - a result from a rare amino acid called L-Theanine.
No caffeine spikes or jitters!
withinUs™ TruOrganic™ Matcha is an exclusive, premium, first harvest blend created just for us. It is a combination of the two highest grades of matcha available from one of the oldest and most highly acclaimed tencha growing regions in Japan, where matcha originated over 800 years ago. Our matcha is pure and tested for metals, including lead (which is an ongoing concern with lower quality matcha and products from China). Lower grade matcha often has a gritty texture, bitter flavour and is often used for baking instead of drinking, due to the harsh taste. TruOrganic™ Matcha is incredibly smooth and sweet to the taste - it is a withinUs Team favourite in and out of the office.
