Natural Protein™ is a 2 to 1 ratio of whey to collagen protein from grass fed cows. It’s GMO-free, hormone-treatment-free, and antibiotic-free.
18 grams of grass-fed protein per serving!
Whey protein to build lean muscle
Collagen protein to expedite recovery & repair
Colostrum for extra regenerative growth factors
Available in two all-natural flavors, Madagascar Vanilla Bean and Raw Ecuadorian Cacao, it provides a revitalizing dose of bio-available protein.
The Natural Protein™ complex features a unique 2:1 ratio of whey protein and collagen protein. It also has an extensive amino acid profile, and a range of immunoglobulins. Combined with colostrum for regenerative growth factors, Natural Protein allows you to enjoy fast recovery, a strong immune system, strong connective tissue and improved lean muscle development.
Premium sourcing and minimal processing ensures that Natural Protein™ maintains a full spectrum of fragile immune-modulating and regenerative nutrients. Whey concentrate, hydrolyzed collagen, and bovine colostrum create a protein matrix that’s rich with the amino acids and peptides necessary to replenish the entire body.
Colostrum increases the amount of growth and immune factors, making Natural Protein™ up to five times more effective than typical protein powders. Also, collagen provides the specific peptides critical for regenerative growth of muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, and bones.
Collagen supplies the connective-tissue-building amino acids missing from most diets, such as glycine, proline, cysteine, and arginine. It reduces inflammation and increases the hydration of connective tissues in the body, improving joint flexibility and mobility.
Natural Protein™ is not your ordinary protein powder.
It contains a complete protein matrix consisting of the finest whey protein concentrate made from fresh milk (not cheese by-products) and pure hydrolyzed bovine collagen protein. The 2 to 1 ratio of whey to collagen protein provides a full spectrum of nutrients essential for fast recovery, a strong immune system, and lean muscle growth. Natural Protein™ also contains colostrum from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows to increase the amount of regenerative growth factors. It's biologically-active, undenatured protein powder designed for optimal health and performance.
Unlike most protein powders which are derived from GMO-grain-fed, factory-farmed cows, Natural Protein™ comes exclusively from cows that graze year-round on lush grasslands. The cows are never fed grain or GMO foods, and are not exposed to chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, or growth hormones. These grass fed, pasture raised cows are substantially healthier and stronger than grain fed factory cows, making them much more nutritious. Because of the premium sourcing and minimal processing, Natural Protein™ provides a full profile of fragile immune-modulating growth factors and amino acids. Just the way nature intended.
A Complete Whey Collagen Protein Matrix
Using a ground-breaking 2:1 ratio of whey protein to collagen protein, Natural Protein™ supplies a complete protein matrix necessary for growth and recovery. It’s rich with essential and branched chain amino acids to replenish your entire body. Whey protein concentrate is the superior form of protein for boosting the immune system and building lean muscle. A proprietary filtration and drying process protects the natural protein compounds from high heat and pressure, resulting in whey protein biologically-active and rapidly absorbed. The whey is not hydrolyzed, acid processed, cross-flow filtered, or ion-exchanged because those methods denature the protein and make it extremely difficult for the body to digest.
Most people forget about supporting for their connective tissues until deterioration sets in, leading to typical aches and pains. Known as the single most abundant protein in the animal kingdom, collagen can effectively protect and restore your body’s connective tissue. It supports strength, recovery, and flexibility of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Collagen has also been shown to reduce inflammation, improve hydration, promote deeper sleep. The collagen in Natural Protein™ is processed using enzyme hydrolyzation, a careful process that leaves its peptides intact and yields a low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability.
No Sugar, Sweeteners, or Artificial Ingredients
Most protein powders contain sugar, high fructose corn syrup, or un-healthy sweeteners. Not Natural Protein™. The premium ingredients have a great natural taste that simply doesn’t require sweeteners. There are no artificial flavors, fillers, dyes, or colorings. Natural Protein™ is flavored only with raw Madagascar vanilla bean or raw Ecuadorian cacao. Utilizing the finest super-nutrients from healthy grass-fed cows, Natural Protein™ is a powerful tool for optimizing general health and amplifying physical performance.
DIRECTIONS: Mix 1 scoop (19g) with 6 oz of cold water or into your favorite smoothie. Scoop included.

Whey Protein Concentrate
Natural Protein™ features the purest non-denatured, non-acid, low-temperature processed all-natural whey protein concentrate. It’s derived from pasture raised grass-fed cows and minimally processed to maintain the full range of fragile immune-modulating and regenerative components present in fresh raw milk. In addition to its muscle-building and health-promoting properties, it helps manage hunger and sustain energy levels.
Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen
Up to 30% of all protein in the body and 70% of the proteins in connective tissues are composed of collagen. Its essential to the elasticity and regeneration of tendons, cartilage, bones, and skin. Sourced from nature’s healthiest cows, the collagen in Natural Protein™ is enzymatically processed to leave it’s nutrient peptides intact and bio-available. Its been shown to speed recovery, repair connective tissue, and improve flexibility.
Also known as “first milk”, colostrum is a pre-milk fluid produced by mammals that have recently given birth. The enzymes, antibodies, and growth factors colostrum provides promote growth and fight disease. Natural Protein™ has colostrum that comes from cows that are pastured-raised year round on natural grasslands. It’s minimally processed to maintain all original regenerative and immune enhancing native components.
Raw Madagascar Vanilla Bean
You won't find any artificial flavors or vanilla extracts at Natural Stacks. Our Natural Protein™ is flavored with actual raw ground vanilla bean that we source only from the finest ‘A’ Grade Madagascar vanilla beans for a delicate and aromatic flavor.
Raw Ecuadorian Cacao
Sourced directly from the high-altitude mountains of Ecuador, the raw cacao powder in Natural Protein™ is rich with essential micronutrients (vitamin c, magnesium, zinc, iron) and has the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world.
A study examining the effect of protein and resistance training on muscle growth found that “dairy protein, and whey in particular may: 1) stimulate the greatest rise in muscle protein synthesis, 2) result in greater muscle cross-sectional area when combined with chronic resistance training, and 3) at least in younger individuals, enhance exercise recovery.” 
Results from a 2008 study in the Journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition indicated that “subjects that consume a whey protein supplement before and after a resistance training session have a significantly greater improvement in exercise recovery 24- and 48-hours post-exercise than subject ingesting a placebo.” 
A double-blinded randomized controlled trial on young men (age 21-23) found that “the ingestion of a modest dose of whey protein, taken immediately after resistance exercise, is able to enhance the earlier activation of translational kinases in young males compared with exercise alone.” 
In 2008, a 24-week study at Penn State University on 147 student athletes showed significant results for “the use of collagen hydrolysate to support joint health and possibly reduce the risk of joint deterioration” 
A recent clinical study confirmed the pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory properties of hydrolyzed collagen. Specifically, it “demonstrated that collagen peptides are potential therapeutic agents as nutritional supplements for the management of osteoarthritis and maintenance of joint health” 
Results from a randomized controlled trial on 250 subjects showed that “there was a significant improvement in knee joint comfort” when hydrolyzed collagen was ingested daily. 
A 2012 study published in the Journal of Medicine and Sport Science showed that “bovine colostrum is beneficial for certain groups of athletes, such as those involved in strenuous training (e.g. endurance athletes), in terms of immunity and resistance to infection.” 
An 8-week study on 51 men examined the effects of bovine colostrum on exercise performance. Researchers concluded that “bovine colostrum supplementation during training significantly increased peak anaerobic power” 
When investigating how to optimize the performance of highly trained cyclists, it was found that “low dose bovine colostrum supplementation elicited improvements in 40 km time trial performance during an high intensity training period” 
Can I heat up Natural Protein and use it in cooking?
No; the type of Whey that we use in our Natural Protein is called Proserum. Exposing this to high temperatures denatures the proteins, thus, making them ineffective. Also, avoid excessively blending Natural Protein. A shaker bottle is recommended. Use of an electric blender is acceptable on low speed. This is to ensure the protein peptides stay intact and deliver optimal nutrient uptake. If adding to a smoothie, first blend together all other ingredients before gently blending in Natural protein at the end.
Is Natural Protein vegan or vegetarian?
No, since it contains whey (from milk), colostrum, and bovine collagen.
Is Natural Protein gluten free?
Is your whey from grass fed cows sweetened or flavored with anything, and what you use to do so.
Natural Protein contains no sweeteners whatsoever. Natural Protein (Cacao) is flavored with raw Ecuadorian cacao and ground Madagascar vanilla bean. Natural Protein (Vanilla) is flavored with only ground Madagascar vanilla bean.
Does Natural Protein contain lactose? If yes, how much?
Natural Protein has a very low lactose level that should be well tolerated by most lactose-sensitive people. 1 serving of Natural Protein (19 grams) contains 1.3 grams of lactose, which is considered well below the level for intolerance.
Does Natural Protein contain calcium, and if so, how much?
Calcium is naturally found in the whey and collagen, both ingredients in the Natural Protein. There are 200mg of naturally occurring calcium in each serving (19g) of Natural Protein. Please note you may see the complete list of ingredients here, and be aware that Natural Protein does not contain sugar.
I am currently trying to conceive, thinking ahead and wondering about the warning label. Some protein powders say to consult a doctor before use if pregnant but yours said NOT to use. Is there a reason for this? Is it raw milk?
Natural Protein is similar to other high quality whey / collagen protein powders. We are just conservative with our labeling.
We foresee no conflict, but we do recommend that she consult a healthcare practitioner before taking Natural Protein or any nutritional supplement if she is pregnant/nursing, has or suspects a medical condition, taking any medications, or other non-Natural Stacks™ dietary supplements.
Why do you use a 2:1 ratio of protein?
It's a full spectrum protein, in a ratio that's close to what's found in nature; this provides a complete amino acid profile for optimal performance and recovery. Most people forget about collegen protein or don't understand its importance to support both your muscle tissue and your connective tissue matrices.
Is your proprietary filtration and drying method a cold-filtered process?
Our whey is pasteurized at 161 degrees for 15 seconds, there is no additional heat used in the process, this process is known as flash pasteurization. The term cold-filtered is more of a marketing term, since all whey must be pasteurized, the other method is to pasteurize at 141 degrees for 30 minutes.
