Formed by a drug-free professional bodybuilder and a drug-free pro figure competitor in 2005, Core Nutritionals is based in Asburn, Virginia.
Its founders are Doug and Stephanie Miller. The husband-and-wife team are committed to providing “superior products that are proven to work” for both “weekend warriors” and elite athletes. The brand’s motto is “Crush It!”.
As one may expect from a company started by two drug-free fitness competitors, the Core Nutritionals website promises “no pixie dust”, and “no fillers”. This follows the company’s refusal to “skimp on effective ingredients”, with the lack of proprietary blends and clear dosage information on every Core Nutritionals products label showcasing this.
According to the website’s Company Profile, Core Nutritionals ensures high-quality products through “rigorous testing” and even offers to provide evidence of product claims “with blood work results”. In addition, all of the company’s supplements are made in the United States at cGMP-certified facilities.
Core Nutritionals also an endorsement program. The brand’s “Core Elite Athletes” include Brian Whitacre (6 x WNBF World Light Weight Champion), Leigha Hervey (3 x WNBF World Bikini Champion), and Lauren Dannenmiller (IFBB Pro Bikini competitor).
The brand’s large product range includes pre-workouts, “anabolics”, intra-workouts, sleep aids, and joint and general health products., alongside protein powders and mass gainers.
Core Nutritionals products are available from the brand website and from several third parties, including Amazon, Tiger Fitness, and Bodybuilding.com. Customers in both the US and abroad may buy the brand’s products.
Pump, Core ABC and Core MRP are Core Nutritionals’ best-selling products on Bodybuilding.com. Pump is a “pre-workout vasodilator” that offers “intense” muscle pumps, and which the company calls “completely gimmick-ingredient free”.
Core ABC contains a mix of amino acids, beta-alanine, citrulline malate and is designed to promote “muscle building, endurance and recovery”. Meanwhile, Core MRP is a meal replacement that comes in novel flavors like “Snickerdoodle”, and “Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie”.
