*NEW* ORIGINAL Protein – Goat & Cow Options

Big news! We’re proud to announce not one, not two, but three new products for all you clean athletes. We have clean label whey proteins that honor the ORIGINAL Nutritionals mission of providing the best basic, pure, essential nutrients for athletes.

  • Hydro-Iso Whey: This cow based whey is ultra-pure which minimizes lactose. This fast digesting protein is the highest potency protein when it comes to muscle protein synthesis in the first three hours. This option clears the stomach quickly to prevent bloating and allows for continued training efforts. Also, the hydro-iso option has high BCAA and Leucine content.
  • High Lipid Whey: This cow based whey is an ORIGINAL Nutritionals favorite as we are strong advocates for full naturally occurring fats. This product maintains key milk lipids. Furthermore, the MCTs and phospholipids are vital in cell and membrane support. The texture on this protein is awesome and it can be a resource for ketogenetic athletes and low carb athletes.
  • Goat Whey. This fast digesting and fast absorbing protein is completely non-bovine and is a revolutionary option for men and women that can be less allergenic than cow’s whey. This option includes high levels of BCAAs and Leucine, as well as better potassium content.

These three options are on sale now and are completely free of added sweeteners, fillers, and junk. It’s just the good stuff. These are unflavored so you may mix shakes to taste. Look for flavored options soon!

Waterskiing to Success

There are a number of people around me that make me better. One of which is a dapper New Zealander who spends his time split between consulting businesses and climbing mountains. Clark is always a brilliant source of inspiration and helpful mentor to me.

Just yesterday we met for coffee and a meeting of the minds. Without any real agenda, we covered numerous topics of organizational culture, relationships, and business strategy during which Clark offered up a beautiful analogy.

“If you’ve ever been water skiing,” which I had so I perked up he went on to say, “you’ll know that before you get up, you’re being literally dragged through the water. It’s literally a grind just to stand up. Once standing up on your skis, however, the workload is much different. You can flow, carve, and the ride comes easy.” This experience is just like any other excellent endeavor.

Think of any important undertaking from business to sports, we all must go through that grind before we stand up. Once you’re up, if you’re willing to enduring that initial grind, you can reap the benefits of flow.

In many ways, the last few years of business I’ve started to feel this flow. Where everything used to be hard, people, opportunity, and grow in areas that used to be a literal water-dragging nightmare has become easy. My new venture into ju jitsu, however, is a perpetual pre-stood-up-water-dragging-torture-fest. White belts drag through the water, black belts flow.

If you’re attempting to do something remarkable, don’t be alarmed if you feel like you’re drowning. You’ve got to earn the fun and flow of standing up on the water.

Why are My Favorite Supplement Brands Going Out of Business?

It’s seems shocking when monolithic sports nutrition companies that seem to be everywhere one day are gone the next. Just like past years, 2015 saw much of the same departures. 2016 will be no different.

But, why?

The same things that would lead one to believe that a sports nutrition company is a powerhouse are actually the same things that lead to their departure. It costs millions of dollars a year to convince a considerable part of the population that a supplement brand is remarkable.

Luckily for ORIGINAL Nutritionals, we don’t have millions to spend convincing you that we’re magical. Furthermore, we aren’t going to borrow it to convince you, either. We’re committing to do this ourselves, with a couple quality products, and a commitment to a lifestyle of front squats and pull ups.

If you ever get weary, don’t forget your supplements aren’t magic. Your favorite protein really isn’t that special. And, the more commercials and billboards you see for a brand, the more money it’s costing them to convince you of their value.

See you all next year.
