FAQs


 

What is collagen?
Collagen is mostly protein, naturally found in bones, skin, and cartilage. Containing over 90% protein and a distinctive amino acid group, it is rapidly absorbed and easily assimilated by the body. Collagen contains glycine, lysine and proline, which can be used by the body to build connective tissue structures and support cell functions. 

What are the differences between beef gelatin collagen and collagen peptides?
Collagen peptides is a hydrolyzed gelatin that has been more aggressively processed to form smaller proteins. Gelatin is only soluble in hot liquids.

What are the benefits of collagen?
Collagen has an important structural function in several organs of the body, especially in bone and connective tissue. It supports joint health, improves digestive health, helps with post-workout recovery, skin, hair, nails, and more restful sleep*.

How does collagen taste?
Collagen is flavorless and tasteless.

Are My Tonic Bar blends vegan?
Since we use beef gelatin as our main ingredients, our blends are not vegan or vegetarian. 

What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are a unique class of healing plants. They help balance, restore and protect the body*. 

What is the serving size of your blends?
The serving size depends on the blend and amount of liquid that you use. We recommend using 2-3 tbsp per 16oz of liquid for a full flavor of the blends.

Can I use your products if I don’t have a blender?
Though a blender is preferable, hand mixing will work too.

When should I drink tonics?
My Tonic Bar blends are perfect to start your morning, sip during your busy day, or wind down at night.

Do My Tonic Bar blends contain caffeine?
Matcha blend and 'Dirty Chai' contain caffeine. We do add cacao powder in most of our mixes. While cacao contains little to no caffeine, its theobromine content can act as a gentle stimulant, since it's closely related to caffeine.

Are My Tonic Bar blends safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
We recommend sharing the list of ingredients with your physician on whether you should take them during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

How can I try your products without committing to a full size bag?
