It's Here! Introducing

Complement Protein

Clean, plant-based protein. Nothing else.

The Idea

Developed for and by the No Meat Athlete community

When it comes to plant-based nutrition for sports, I’ve always been a “whole food first” kind of guy.

I’d rather eat dates than energy gels, and prefer to drink smoothies over sports drinks. But what about protein?

Same here. I look to food first, but if I’m going to take a supplement — or give one to my kids, two young plant-based athletes themselves — I want it to be as close to real food as possible.

But... what I found when I looked around at the plant-based protein options was appalling.

Matt Frazier, Founder and Author of No Meat Athlete

For one, they didn’t taste anything like real food — always either sweetened with pure sugar or a “natural” sweetener like stevia or monkfruit that, to me, tastes anything but natural.

As I dug deeper, it got worse. There are no requirements for clarity on supplement labels, and I heard whispers of brands that advertise “complete protein blends” while actually using 99% of the cheapest protein and only “blend” the others into the remaining 1%.

Then, I learned that the heavy metal content — arsenic, cadmium, and lead — in many of the popular brands is downright scary.

The last thing I’d want is to think I’m doing something to help my kids perform at their best, while actually exposing them to dangerous carcinogens, every single day.

Why, I wondered, is it so hard to find a clean plant-based protein?

It’s not like we’re looking for a mega-dose of protein here. Just a moderate amount to give me the peace of mind that their plant-based diet is actually an advantage in sports, not the opposite.

There had to be a better way.

And this is what led me to do what my team and I have done with Complement spray in 2017 and Complement Plus capsules in 2018 — to work with the No Meat Athlete audience and create a true crowd-built and crowdfunded product.

That’s how Complement Protein — a cleaner, safer, simpler plant-based protein, and one I can feel good about giving to my family — was born.

The Presale Fine Print (which is actually as big as the rest of this page - we want to be fully transparent with you): Complement Protein is being launched the same way we launched Complement Spray and Complement Plus — as a true crowd-created and crowd-funded product. Estimated delivery time for first shipment is late September to early October. With this being a preorder, there is a chance that the final formula or packaging may differ slightly from what you see on this page — but we promise to keep you up to date on any changes, and will of course offer a full money-back guarantee if you don't feel like waiting anymore.

Questions? We Got Answers!

When can I expect my order? 

The first batch of Complement Protein is currently being produced, and we expect to have it shipping by late September, all going well. As an early backer, you'll be the first to receive it once it's ready.

What's the serving size and how much protein does it contain?

One scoop of Complement Protein is 22 grams, and contains 15 grams of complete plant protein.

What is the full nutritional profile? How much Carbs or Fat?

Once the formula is fully confirmed, we'll be able to share the complete Nutrition Facts panel. Until then, the values below are our best estimate (but only an estimate, nonetheless), based on the individual ingredients' specifications:

How should I use Complement Protein?

We designed Complement Protein to be versatile - meaning you can add it to a smoothie, mix it with plant milk or other drink, or even use it for baking! (Please share whatever you create with it by tagging us on IG @LoveComplement :)

Does it contain any allergens? 

Complement Protein is soy-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free! (And obviously, free of any other animal-based ingredients.) It does contain peas and almonds , which some people may be sensitive to.

Is it certified organic? 

All the individual ingredients in ComplementPlus are 100% organic and certified by the USDA. We’re also in the process of attaining certification for the product itself, but because that certification process takes a while, there is a chance the first batch might be in your hands before we receive the official USDA stamp. Rest assured that all of the ingredients included are certified and 100% organic!

Is Complement Protein made from whole foods?

Complement Protein is made from USDA certified 100% organic ingredients, which are ground into a fine powder. Some of these are “protein isolates”. While we always prefer “whole foods”, it is necessary for us to include isolates to ensure that we deliver the ideal texture and protein quantity in a small serving (less than two tablespoons).

How does it taste?

Complement Protein does NOT contain any flavors, natural or artificial, nor any sweeteners — it is a neutral blend of complete plant protein. We believe that makes it the cleanest, most versatile option — and allows you to mix it with whatever whole food ingredient tastes best to you.

I heard that organic plant protein powders have the highest levels of heavy metals. Is this true? 

Heavy Metals are a natural part of our environment and, unfortunately, because they exist in the Earth’s soil, they end up in organic fruits and vegetables. Some recent research seems to indicate that many vegan protein powders contain high levels of heavy metals, like lead, cadmium, and arsenic. That’s one of the reasons we created Complement Protein -- so we could be absolutely sure that it exceeds the stringent California Prop 65 standards, which are up to 1,000 times lower than levels still deemed safe by the FDA. We only create products that we are comfortable giving our young children, so we go beyond even what government entities suggest to ensure safety.

Does Complement Protein ship internationally?

Yes! Complement Protein is available to order in Canada, the EU, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Let us know if your country is missing from the list, so we can check the shipping costs for you. (And please keep in mind that international orders may incur extra import fees at delivery. This is country-specific, and out of our control. There's very little we can do to assist with packages lost or detained by customs.)

If you are an international customer with an existing Complement Plus subscription and would like to combine shipping going forward, please let us know after ordering so we can adjust your delivery schedule accordingly.

What if I change my mind?

You are 100% covered by our money-back guarantee if you feel like you don't want to wait for the first batch anymore (just remember that the presale price WILL be going away after this week).

How does a subscription work? And can I change it?

By choosing to subscribe to Complement Protein, you're locking in a price that's 10% lower than the regular presale offer - for life! You can choose your delivery frequency when you order (for example, if you get a single bag, you'll probably want it delivered every month, but if you get three, you might want to get your order every three months instead), and adjust it at any time through your dashboard, or by contacting us - we're always happy to help.

There are no minimums or cancellation penalties - you can skip, change or cancel your standing order at any time. Just keep in mind that cancelling it means you'll lose access to presale pricing, while skipping an upcoming order means your price stays the same even though you skip a delivery (or two). Again, this can be done through your dashboard, or by sending us an email.

The Complement™ Guarantee

We want you to love Complementing as much as we do. If within 30 days of receiving your order, you're not absolutely thrilled with Complement Protein just send us back the bag and we'll refund 100% of your purchase price, no questions asked. And of course, if you decide you don't want to wait anymore while the first batch is being produced and want your money back, you're covered as well.
 
We're here to strengthen this movement that we so strongly believe in — so we're not happy until you are.
