It’s Muscle Elements‘ one year birthday!
However, did you know that had things gone correctly, it should have been their second birthday? Unfortunately, that’s not how it went, due to several dramatic legal issues from the leadership’s ex-employers.
The story is best told by Muscle Elements’ CEO himself, Eric Tomko, so take a look:
The Story Behind Muscle Elements
This explains some of the drama that goes on behind the scenes in the industry. Many of the legal documents are public record, so if you’re really interested, we can try to dig them up.
Why do we like Muscle Elements?
We’ve said before time and time again that this is a company to watch out for. We could say that it’s their unique, open formulas. We could say that it’s their awesome leadership, which includes Eric but also some of the other guys, who are always happy to talk about science, supplements, sports nutrition, and building a better body. We could even say that we just like their beginner-friendly marketing message.
But to be honest, the reason we really like Muscle Elements is because they are great liars:
The Stack3d Certification
You can click the link above to read about it, but the short story is that Muscle Elements allowed Stack3d to make a random purchase of their TRUTH Protein, have it tested for every possible free form amino acid, and post the tests publicly.
Stack3d was hoping to see 24g of protein.
Instead, they got 25.
No other company does this kind of protein overfill! In an era when everyone is finding ways to give you less, they are spending money to give you more. And most consumers don’t even know about it.
And that is truly why we love these guys.
But they actually tell you exactly what you’re getting
But what’s even cooler is that Muscle Elements embraces the idea of a 100% open, non-proprietary formula in explaining their exact proteins:
- 9g whey protein concentrate (WPC-80)
- 6g whey protein isolate (WPI-90)
- 4.5g milk protein isolate
- 4.5g micellar casein
We’re not sure where that extra gram of protein is coming in, but we’re taking it.
So if you’re taking two protein powders, and one of them is stealin’ your gains… Muscle Elements is doing their best to put them back in there.
So, happy birthday, Muscle Elements, you dirty sons of guns!
