Ascent Protein

Ascent protein is the new benchmark in protein purity. Pioneered in our own facility, our breakthrough process goes straight to the source. We make our own protein directly from high-quality milk, in our own factory, eliminating extra rounds of heating and harmful steps like “bleaching”.

There are no artificial ingredients, additives or gimmicks. It’s not the easiest way to do it, but as you know, real results don’t come from easy.

OUR NATIVE FUEL(TM) PROTEIN IS MADE WITH NATIVE WHEY, WHICH IS — SIMPLY PUT — THE NEW BENCHMARK IN PROTEIN PURITY. NATIVE WHEY IS THE LEAST-PROCESSED PROTEIN AVAILABLE TODAY BECAUSE IT ’S FILTERED DIRECTLY FROM HIGH-QUALITY MILK. IT ALSO CONTAINS HIGHER LEVELS OF NATURALLY OCCURRING LEUCINE, A KEY AMINO ACID FOR STIMULATING MUSCLE PROTEIN SYNTHESIS. WE’RE ABLE TO DO THIS BECAUSE, UNLIKE MOST COMPANIES, WE DON'T BUY ANY OF OUR PROTEINS. WE MAKE OUR OWN PROTEIN — AND WE’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR OVER 30 YEARS. WE BUY THE MILK FROM TRUSTED DAIRY FARMERS AND THEN FILTER THE PROTEINS IN OUR OWN FACILITIES. WE USE ZERO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS AND AVOID HARMFUL STEPS LIKE “BLEACHING.” IT ’S NOT THE EASIEST WAY TO DO IT, BUT AS YOU KNOW, REAL RESULTS DON’T COME FROM EASY.

Our Native Fuel™ micellar casein is - simply put - the new benchmark in protein purity. We filter our protein directly from milk, making it the least processed micellar casein protein available - delivered in its purest form. Casein is a complementary protein to whey, and both proteins provide exceptional benefits for your daily fitness routine. Whey gets muscle repair started immediately post workout, because it is rapidly absorbed into your system. Micellar casein provides a slow and sustained release of essential amino acids. When taken at night, this helps prevent muscular deterioration and promotes the body’s ability to repair and improve during its natural recovery period – sleep. We're able to do this because, unlike most companies, we don't buy any of our proteins. We make our own protein – and we’ve been doing it for over 30 years. We buy the milk from trusted dairy farmers and then filter the proteins in our own facilities. We use zero artificial ingredients and avoid harmful steps like "bleaching." It's not the easiest way to do it, but as you know, real results don't come from easy.
