Move over bulletproof coffee! There’s a new drink in town and it’s called Tightrope Matcha.
At withinUs, we love creating new ways to enjoy our delicious TruOrganic™ Matcha – and our TruSupporters and customers do too. The response has been overwhelming as people have never tasted a matcha that is so smooth! Their perception of what matcha taste like has changed. We still love whisking it up and drinking it the traditional way, but we also have been having fun experimenting with different ideas, and came up with the perfect recipe for a creamy, green alternative to buttery coffee – Tightrope Matcha!
Life is all about balance.
withinUs Tightrope Matcha introduces your body to that perfect balance. And for the withinUs Team, being balanced is far more important than being bulletproof.
The combination of energy supplied by TruOrganic™ Matcha and coconut oil, combined with the health benefits of withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is truly the perfect trio. This terrific trio offers a steady flow of energy, increased cognition and alertness all while giving your body the building blocks for healthy skin, hair, nails, joints and bones.
Matcha vs. Coffee
In a side-by-side comparison, there is no question that a high quality, authentically sourced matcha, such as withinUs TruOrganic™ Matcha offers more health benefits than coffee:
- Contains L-Theanine – an amino acid that encourages the slow release of caffeine in the body – giving you a steady flow of energy without crashes or jitters
- Increases memory and concentration
- Rich in antioxidants
- Helps increase immune functioning
- Helps lower blood pressure
- It is alkaline – helps balance PH levels in the body
Why coconut oil?
Adding fat to a cup of morning coffee is a tradition that turned trendy. For centuries, Sherpas in the Himalayas, Northern India and Tibet have been drinking butter tea. Sherpas sip on butter tea throughout the day for energy, fuel and to help improve cognition and mental alertness.
Adding organic virgin coconut oil has many of the same effects and benefits as adding butter to tea, all while leaving out the sodium, cholesterol, and the dairy component.
Coconut oil is digested differently than most fats - it is digested quickly, and converts into energy. It also contains healthy fatty acids (medium chain fatty acids), which can help reduce cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. It provides ‘good’ cholesterol in the body, and it also converts ‘bad’ cholesterol into a less harmful form.
