Collagen provides strength and integrity to the structural protein matrix found in skin, bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage.
Collagen loss is a natural part of ageing which occurs from our 30’s and increase as we grow older. Our hydrolysed collagen peptides are a specific size (under 5000DA’s) for maximum absorption and efficient integration into targeted cells.
Sourced from grass-fed herds in the EU and found pre-blended in our delicious brews of Coffee + Collagen, Matcha + Collagen and Cacao + Collagen or as our odourless, tasteless, highly dissolvable True Collagen to add to your own drinks.

Matcha, derived from the leaves of Camellia sinensis, the same plant used to produce green tea, is grown and harvested in a way that leaves it enriched with powerful antioxidants and other health-promoting nutrients like Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) Matcha offers a natural and clean caffeine source, without the jitters due to its rich content of L-theanine, an amino acid that provides a sense of calm against the stimulating effects of caffeine on the body's nervous system. Research has shown that the L-theanine in matcha works synergistically with caffeine, promoting a feeling of relaxation and mental clarity, helping to foster a state of tranquillity and alertness. Drinking matcha tea can also promote and protect collagen synthesis in the skin.

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides)
MCT’s are readily utilised for cellular energy production and easily convert into ketones which may provide an alternative energy source for brain cells.
Rest assured our True MCT oil is sustainably sourced 100% from coconuts, never from palm oil, and is extracted using pure steamed distillation and gentle hydrolysis to contain C8 (60%) and C10 (40%).
A clear, odourless, and tasteless oil to easily fuel-up your day. A popular Brave Recipe is the morning ritual of adding True MCT to your morning coffee (or tea) for an invigorating start to the day.
Moringa has been used extensively in traditional medicine practices such as Ayurveda for over 4000 years. This tropical plant species, native to the Himalayan mountains and parts of India and Africa, is often called ‘Nature’s Multivitamin’ as it contains an impressive range of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and comes packed with over 90 protective compounds, including , flavonoids, isothiocyanates and phenolic acids. Best known for reducing inflammation, fighting oxidative stress and detoxifying your body - moringa makes a great addition to morning rituals. High in fibre, it can also help you to feel fuller for longer. The leaves have been harvested, dried at low temperatures and milled into a fine powder to create our vibrant, organic Moringa powder.
You can find our bright moringa powder in our delicious Matcha + Collagen blend, created for the perfect morning Rise Ritual.
Originating from Indonesia and China, cinnamon is a tree bark and has been important both as a culinary spice and as an Ayurvedic botanical for centuries.

Are We Drowning In Dopamine?
Dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain, is often described as a ‘reward or pleasure chemical’. Triggers for our dopamine response now come in the form of falling down a scroll-hole on social media, alcohol, excess caffeine, ultra-processed foods, that shopping high and ‘likes’ on our posts. Jo Woodhurst delves into ways to combat this.
Matcha - The Jitter-free Caffeine Hit
Caffeine is a potent stimulant that helps you feel more alert, however it also prompts the release of stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol, which for some caffeine-sensitive people contributes to anxiety and other unwanted stress-related side effects. If you've experienced this, it might be time to explore a healthier alternative – enter matcha.

Adaptogens are herbs and mushrooms that help your body build resilience against the negative effects of stress and anxiety. The benefits are wide ranging and best seen when consumed on a regular basis. Lions Mane is an adaptogenic mushroom which has been shown to improve cognitive function, enhancing focus and mental clarity.
WHAT TYPE OF COLLAGEN IS IN MATCHA + COLLAGEN?
We have combined our highly absorbable hydrolysed True Collagen to this beautiful Matcha + Collagen blend. Each serving will contain 2500mg of sustainably sourced grass-fed bovine Type 1 collagen peptides from the EU.
IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS OR VEGANS?
This product contains our bovine rich True Collagen which is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans. To support your collagen needs on a plant based diet, we would recommend one of our amazing alternative collagen products - Radiant Collagyn & Naked Collagyn.
WHEN SHOULD I DRINK THIS PRODUCT?
We recommend Matcha + Collagen as part of your morning ritual.
Mix 1 scoop (6g) of Matcha + Collagen with a little hot water (not boiling) into a paste then pour in a milk of your choice to fill your cup for a matcha latte style drink. Alternatively mix with hot water only and a splash of milk if you enjoy a longer drink.
WHAT MILK IS SUITABLE TO ADD TO THIS PRODUCT?
This really is down to dietary preference. We love adding our favourite unsweetened plant mylk to Matcha + Collagen but it goes equally as well with full fat, semi or skimmed cow’s milk.
CAN I TAKE OTHER COLLAGEN ALONGSIDE THIS PRODUCT?
Along with the other wonderful ingredients, this product contains 2500mg of our True Collagen per serving. We recommend a daily intake of between 5g and 10g daily of collagen which means incorporating other collagen rich products would make a perfect partnership to this drink.
IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR BREASTFEEDING OR PREGANANT WOMEN?
You should always consult your doctor or midwife regarding any new additions to your diet or supplements you take during your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey. Matcha is a natural source of caffeine and therefore we urge you to be aware of your overall caffeine intake. Lion's Mane has not been extensively studied in pregnancy for safety, due to ethical reasons, and therefore when making your choice this needs to be considered and we urge caution until more information is available.
DOES THIS PRODUCT CONTAIN CAFFEINE?
As a green tea, Matcha + Collagen contains antioxidant rich caffeine although at lower amounts compared to coffee. Matcha also naturally contains L-Theanine which balances the effect of caffeine and is often better tolerated (no jitters!)
COULD ADDING MILK/MYLK INTERFERE WITH MY FAST?
Full fat, semi and skimmed cow’s milk all contain too many calories to keep you in fast. But if you use unsweetened plant mylk, avoid ones that come fortified with extra protein it shouldn’t make a big difference. As a general guideline, keep the total calories (of your brew + mylk) within the 50 kcal limit, so we recommend no more than 50mls of any milk providing the nutrition information states:Under 28 Kcal per 100mlUnder 2.5g of total carbs per 100mlUnder 2.5g sugar per 100mlUnder 0.5g of protein per 100ml
