Ladder empowers you to reach your lifestyle goals by providing support and guidance from world class advisors and experts.

For more information, visit About Us.

Ladder has four product lines: Whey Protein, Plant Protein, Energy, and Greens. We invested more than 2 years researching and developing products that would meet the demands of professional athletes and Olympians while also supporting everyday lifestyles.
All Ladder products are meant to be flexible and easy to work into your daily lifestyle. They should generally be mixed with 8-12 fluid ounces of liquid, whether that's water, the milk of your choice, juice, or in a smoothie. The Proteins and Greens are also great to cook with. As part of your subscription, our experts will recommend when and how to take the products, and additional advice and recipes are available from our newsletter or No Magic Pill.
Our Proteins, Energy, and Greens are all made in the US, at a world-class facility in New Jersey.
Every batch of our products are tested by an independent, non-government third party, NSF International. NSF Certified for Sport® certifies that Ladder products do not contain any of the 270+ banned substances by major athletic organizations. This certification also ensures the contents of the supplement actually match what is printed on the label and that there are no unsafe levels of contaminants in the tested products. Find more details about NSF at http://www.nsfsport.com/about-us/.
Our Plant Proteins, Energy, and Greens are all 100% vegan and free of the most common allergens. They are also non-GMO and free from "proprietary blends."
All Ladder products are gluten-free.
Our Whey Protein contains grass-fed whey and milk protein isolate, has 26 grams of protein, and is low sugar (3g).
Our Plant Protein is a vegan combination of pea and pumpkin protein, which are complete proteins and ensure you get all of the essential amino acids your body needs. It has 21g of protein and only 2g of sugar.
Like all our products, our Proteins are NSF Certified for Sport®, non-GMO. and free from "proprietary blends." And to deliver you the best possible product, they are fortified with vitamins, minerals, and probiotics.
Ladder Greens was designed to give you the nutrients your body needs most. The product is filled with spirulina (a powerful algae) and matcha (from green tea), which help reduce excess inflammation that can cause you to become sick. We also included Rhodiola – an amazing root that lessens exhaustion and stress and fights burnout, which is a typical by product of a hard training schedule.
Our Energy product is designed for sustained energy. We limit our use of stimulants so you can avoid the jitters or a big crash that comes from heavy doses of caffeine. Instead, our product contains scientifically-proven combinations that help you feel naturally energized, and emphasizes brain health as a way to improve your focus, increase alertness, and reduce fatigue. This multi-use, vegan product can support every situation where you need a boost: from the early morning to before a workout or a big meeting.
Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid made by the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Beta-alanine is used for improving athletic performance and exercise capacity while building lean muscle mass.
Some people experience a tingling sensation when they consume beta-alanine. It is safe and should subside within 10-15 minutes or whenever you begin exercise.
Energy can work as a coffee substitute, without the crash. We wouldn't recommend having both at the same time as our Energy has 98mg of caffeine - roughly equivalent to a cup of coffee.
We include a great set of vitamins and minerals and they likely cover your needs, but our products are not a multivitamin and you should consult your doctor before changing your vitamin routine.
We recommend mixing one packet with 8-12 ounces of liquid. For Protein or Greens, use water or your favorite milk (we like almond milk or coconut water), or put it in your favorite smoothie. For Energy, we suggest sticking with water as the liquid.
Yes! We highly recommend mixing them into your favorite recipes. The efficacy of the products is not reduced from cooking. Protein could go in pancake batter and Greens makes delicious muffins - try them out and let us know what you like! And for recipe ideas, visit No Magic Pill.
