DENVER, March 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ascent, one of America’s fastest growing sports nutrition brands, announces national distribution of its protein beverage, Recovery Water, at Sprouts Farmers Market. Starting March 16, 2021, Ascent’s Recovery Water will be available at more than 360 Sprouts stores in 23 states nationwide. Sprouts will carry all three flavors of Recovery Water: Fruit Punch, Pineapple Coconut & Watermelon.
Ascent launched Recovery Water in 2020 as an extension of its high-quality, clean sports nutrition products. Recovery Water is a ready-to-drink beverage that offers 20g of clean whey protein with zero artificial ingredients and electrolytes for hydration – at only 100 calories. Recovery Water is a water-based beverage and delicious to drink; it’s not thick or chalky like other products on the market. Recovery Water is currently available in three flavors and Ascent anticipates launching a fourth flavor later this year.
“Sprouts is a great fit for Ascent and our mission to help athletes naturally improve their athletic performance. Recovery Water is a breakthrough in ready to drink protein beverages, and our partnership with Sprouts allows consumers to conveniently find their favorite protein products while doing all of their weekly shopping,” says Josh Haskins, Head of Sales for Ascent Protein.
Since launching in 2016, Ascent has quickly grown into a leading sports nutrition brand and currently has the highest consumer rating among the Top 20 Whey protein brands on Amazon. Based in Denver, CO and family owned, Ascent is one of the only sports nutrition brands that produces the protein themselves – filtering it in their own facilities and sourcing the milk from local dairy farmers in Northern Colorado.
Ascent Protein is trusted by some of the world’s most dominant athletes, including All Pro running back, Christian McCaffrey, 2x CrossFit Games Champion, Katrin Davidsdottir. Ascent is also first-ever performance nutrition partner of USA Weightlifting.
Ascent Native Fuel® is the benchmark in protein purity and is The Official Sponsor of Hard Work®. Drawing from 30 years of experience making protein, Ascent only uses milk from trusted dairy farmers and filters the protein in its own facilities. Ascent uses zero artificial ingredients and avoids harmful steps such as “bleaching.” Aligning with the admirable qualities in the athletes that Ascent serves — going that extra mile, completing an extra set and never backing down from a challenge – Ascent pushes for high-quality results, knowing they do not come without hard work.
