Animal Pak

Everyone wants to accomplish something. Bigger, stronger, leaner…whatever it is. You’re going to have to train hard and eat right. There are no two ways about that. But when you’re neck deep in a program and looking at things on a macro level, the micronutrients sometimes fall short. To avoid this, you supplement with Animal Pak. This all-in-one pak is the ultimate sports performance multivitamin. You’ll get all of the vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients you need to fuel and recover from intense training sessions. Cover all bases. Fill all gaps. Keep moving forward. 

Animal Whey

With Animal Whey we held nothing back. We simply set our minds on delivering the best quality whey protein powder available to an audience of diehard lifters who will accept nothing less. No games. No tricks. No hype. Just protein done right. It was with these high standards in mind that we formulated Animal Whey. Rich in prized whey protein isolate, fortified by digestive enzymes, and mixes easily. At a whopping 25 grams of protein per scoop, it tastes great and exceeds the expectations of the most demanding lifters in terms of mixability, digestibility and flavor.

Animal Greens

Ever have trouble getting in all your vegetables even though you know they are absolutely necessary for a healthy, functioning body? Or maybe you invested in some powdered greens only to find out it tastes like freshly cut grass? Whatever the issue is, forget about it now - toss one pill packet back and cover all your bases for the day. Animal Greens is a complete, optimally balanced antioxidant-rich nutrition powerhouse. It delivers a novel formula based on well-researched natural compounds found in greens like kale, wheat grass, alfalfa, spirulina, chlorella and more.
