To the delight of CrossFitters and athletes across the country, React Nutrition has confirmed it has been named the exclusive UK retailer of popular gluten free protein brand, Ascent Protein. The move means the highly sought-after protein supplements are now available to buy in the UK for the first time following huge success Stateside.
Ascent Protein has gained tremendous popularity amongst the CrossFit and natural athlete community in the US with its native whey and micellar casein protein products. Both products are not only gluten free, but also entirely free of artificial additives. This naturally makes them a firm favourite for the athletes and gym goers who are in the know about what should and shouldn’t go into their body. Another big reason for the success of the protein is the use of native whey. Currently the least filtered whey protein derivative available in a protein supplement, the use of native whey means less processing and less need for unwanted artificial additions.
CrossFit fans will be very familiar with Ascent Protein given that two-time Fittest Woman on Earth and Iceland CrossFit champion, Katrín Davíðsdóttir is one of their biggest promoters and ambassadors. To add to the brand’s trophy cabinet, it also sponsors World Spartan Endurance Race Champion, Military Iron Man Champion and all-round American endurance athlete, Robert Killian.
It’s safe to say there has been a significant demand for the brand to be brought to the UK, not to mention the rest of Europe where fans have – until now – been forced to ship from the US to get their hands on the Ascent range. With Ascent awarding an exclusive UK & Europe retailer partnership to rapidly growing sports supplement retailer, React Nutrition the long shipping times and expensive postage costs are a thing of the past.
“Ascent is committed to using the best real food ingredients and is designed to improve muscle health and performance. It is also informed choice certified and we are delighted to be the exclusive distributor of Ascent Protein’s outstanding products throughout Europe. Their protein is the purest available particularly being gluten free and based on native whey. These products have earned their reputation in the US and we knew there was a huge demand for them to be made readily available here in the UK and many European countries. We always want to be able to provide the products we ourselves have huge trust in.” commented Drew Rowley, Owner of React Nutrition.
Available in a range of moreish flavours including typical chocolate through to refreshing lemon sorbet, Ascent Protein’s Native Whey Fuel delivers the widely recommended 25 grams of protein per serving. It also boasts 5.7 grams per serving of naturally occurring amino acids to aid protein synthesis. With zero artificial additives, gluten free, and informed choice certified, Ascent Protein is a must-have for nutrition conscious gym goers and high-level athletes.
Though React Nutrition has started supplying Ascent Protein in Crossfit gyms across the UK and Europe already, consumers will be delighted to learn they can now buy the products in all five whey protein flavours including an unflavoured variant, and two micellar casein flavours, direct from the React Nutrition website.
