The new alignment puts Bodylogix protein supplements at the forefront of GNC's newly expanded natural protein section. Bodylogix all-natural proteins in whey and vegan formulas are now available across the U.S. at 3000 GNC retail locations.
"Plant-based proteins continue to experience explosive growth along with an increasing demand for natural and clean proteins that are free of artificial sweeteners and flavors," says Shazad Bukhari, CEO of The Winning Combination, which manufactures and distributes Bodylogix products. "With all-natural ingredients and visionary eco-packaging, Bodylogix is a natural fit to help accelerate GNC's new retail growth strategy. Together, Bodylogix and GNC are well positioned to become the leading market providers of natural and vegan-friendly proteins in the U.S."
Bodylogix Whey Protein and Bodylogix Vegan Protein are available at GNC stores in natural vanilla bean or natural dark chocolate flavors. Bodylogix proteins mix easily with or without a blender and are packaged in an eco-friendly canister that is compostable and recyclable.
