AWAKN Longevity Blend Coffee
Medium Chain Triglycerides Powder [MCT Oil, Acacia Fiber, Tapioca Starch, Less than 1% of dl-alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), silica], Grass Fed Collagen Peptides, Organic Coffee
Where is your collagen protein sourced from?
Our collagen protein is sourced from grass-fed cattle from a collective of ranches throughout the United States.
Where does your coffee come from?
Our coffee is sourced from Fair Trade organic coffee farmers in Mexico. It is a medium roast that is brewed and spray-dried.
Why is there natural tapioca starch and acacia fiber in the MCT oil powder?
In order to make an oil powder, it must have a carrier, which means that the oil is bound to another molecule in order to dehydrate, so there is no 100% pure oil powder.
With FDA labeling standards, you do not have to disclose ingredients within powder, so you should rightfully question any labels that list a stand-alone pure oil powder. You can cheaply bind oil to glucose or other less optimal molecules. We have chosen to disclose the ingredients in our powder.
We’ve chosen to bind our non-GMO coconut MCT oil to natural pre-biotic fiber/starches because of their low insulinogenic response and prebiotic benefits.
What is dl-alpha-tocopherol?
This is a form of vitamin E that is used to naturally maintain freshness and prevent oxidation. We use vitamin E in AWAKN to mitigate oxidation of the MCT oil because we believe that oxidation can have inflammatory effects on the body.
What is silica?
Silica is a naturally occurring compound that comes in various forms throughout our bodies and the earth, it’s found in elements such as sand. It is also found naturally in many plants such as leafy greens. It is used in AWAKN to improve solubility.
