Why increasing food prices doesn't have to mean sacrifices

Prices across the economy are rising faster than they have done for 40 years. Many countries are reporting multi-decade highs, the US inflation numbers just hit 9.1% in June, the fastest rate since 1981.

What is causing inflation?

  • Rising gas prices, as oil production lags demand and the war in Ukraine worsens the squeeze. Prices recently fell from record levels but are expected to remain high.
  • Rising food prices, spurred by supply chain issues, bad weather has reduced yeilds while the war in Ukraine hit grain production.
  • A surge in car prices, due in part to a supply shortage of microchips as well as supply chain issues caused by the pandemic

We’d like to provide you with more than a fleeting sense of comfort that this creeping sensation wasn’t cooked up in some corner of your cerebral cortex. We've got you. Here’s the bottom line you need to keep in mind, although food prices from home rose a staggering 14.4% vs food away from home was 7.7% you don’t need to sacrifice your wallet or your health, you can get the nutrition you and your family need without breaking the bank, or eating out more often.

Your health is our number one priority, and a healthy body is a well nourished body.

As athletes we know you’re used to approaching challenges with a plan and making adjustments along the way, you’re no stranger to that. You might try to approach your grocery dilemmas the same way. Set a budget, come up with a meal plan the family can agree on, and make sure you have a backup in case things are out of stock. In an ideal world, you wouldn’t need supplements. Unfortunately, we are not in an ideal world. Filling a plate with all the macro and micro-nutrients, cheaply, and conveniently is no small task. In fact, preparing 3 meals and snacks that fulfill all the nutritional requirements for different family members, every day as well as all the other demands of daily life is virtually impossible. A task only made more maddening by current circumstances.

Between long lines and high prices, it’s tempting to cut corners, but the truth is that health has never been as obviously important as it is now. Let the conundrum be over, you can save money, skip the lines, and have peace of mind that your whole family is getting the nutrients they need delivered to your door.


Loaded with all the nutrients your body needs to repair, recovery and repair for the next day, in dosages that actually make a difference, without breaking the bank!

This formula has been researched and iterated on for over 35 years. We’re confident you could practically live on it if you can add some fiber and calories. While we’d never normally suggest that, there’s nothing normal right now. In order to maintain your health, and ensure you’re in the best shape possible to return to your sport, you need to keep up a part of your training, even if that means just getting the needed nutrients right now.

We've spent years perfecting this taste, and are sure even the pickiest of eaters will be pleased with by the flavor and smooth finish.
