Bermuda, Wednesday, January 13, 2016. True Protein, maker of all-natural supplements, has signed on as a preferred supplier for ORACLE TEAM USA, defending champions of the America’s Cup. True Protein will provide protein and nutritional supplements to fuel the team as they train for sailing’s greatest challenge – defending the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017.
“To win the America’s Cup, ORACLE TEAM USA sailors need to be at their best,” said Ben Kierath, co-founder of True Protein. “By supplementing with True Protein products throughout their preparation, the team will be at their peak, giving them the best chance of holding onto the trophy.
“Too often, sports nutrition supplements are filled with unnecessary fillers and additives that just bulk out the powder and do nothing to boost performance,” added Kierath. “The modern athlete can only succeed when their diet complements their training, so they pay particular attention to consuming high quality, pure ingredients that help them achieve their training goals.”
True Protein is a relatively new company based in Sydney, Australia, and has rapidly become a market leader in premium-grade sports nutrition supplements. They provide complete transparency for products created from the highest quality ingredients, using natural organic stevia sweetening and all-natural flavorings.
For ORACLE TEAM USA, True Protein is an ideal partner. The team’s heavy training schedule demands a nutrient-dense diet, and maintaining the calorie intake while optimizing energy, recovery and muscle growth can be a challenge.
“The sailors are burning 3,500-5,000 calories per day between on-water training and gym sessions,” said Scott Tindal, ORACLE TEAM USA head physiotherapist and team nutritionist. “By complementing a carefully planned wholefood diet with True Protein supplements, the team is able to hit their macro nutrient goals on a daily basis.
“True Protein is focused on developing innovative, natural products for athletes. Their wide selection of quality, science-based and effective supplements is perfect for the team,” said Tindal.
