Garden of Life® Enters Sports Nutrition Arena with Launch of Garden of Life SPORT, the Cleanest Performance Line Ever

Garden of Life®, the leader and innovator in USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified nutritional products and the No. 1 protein brand for five straight years in the natural channel1, expands into the sports nutrition arena with the launch of Garden of Life SPORT, a line of nutritional products that together comprise what is being called the cleanest performance system available.

Formulated to ensure peak performance from pre-workout to post-workout, Garden of Life SPORT is a complete five-part nutrition system with USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified plant-based pre-workout powders that enhance your energy and focus, a post-workout recovery accelerator to help restore your muscles so you can get to your next training session faster, and muscle-nourishing protein powders and protein bars. Plus, the line introduced the first sustainable, Truly Grass Fed™ Certified Irish whey protein powder. Making the line truly deserving of being called “the cleanest performance line ever” is the fact that every product is certified clean-for-sport by Informed Choice, the most recognized name in International Olympic athletics as well as NSF Certified For Sport®, the leading certification for USA professional, collegiate and high school athletes.

“Our new Garden of Life SPORT system is designed for those who embrace fitness and pursue peak performance through clean nutrition, supplements and physical activity — whether they are everyday gym members, weekend warriors, body builders or high performance athletes,” said Garden of Life President Brian Ray. “Now it’s possible to have clean competition through clean nutrition, with no fear of scary, banned or unsafe ingredients.”

Clean nutrition is an important aspect of any physical fitness program, according to Don Saladino, a fitness and wellness expert who is an owner of Drive 495 and Drive 443 in New York City. Saladino works with a wide range of clients from people improving their everyday fitness to celebrities getting ready for the big screen, and the newest member of the Garden of Life SPORT team. “Everyone is an athlete. Whether you’re competing in sports or competing against yourself to meet your fitness goals, it’s not just about the workout, it’s also about eating truly clean, staying hydrated, and keeping your body fueled to be at your best,” said Saladino. “Garden of Life SPORT offers a full day of nutrition to kick-start your day and manage your metabolism before, during and after a workout, along with protein bars for snacks on-the-go.”
