Vegain - The Plant Based Mass Gainer
So we just decided to bring in a new local (Nanaimo, BC, Vancouver Island) company into our store... Vegain. A brand dedicated to plant based supplements. After speaking with the owner and realizing he was truly passionate about bringing a new type of weight gainer to the Canadian market using all natural plant based protein sources, and ingredients, we thought this was a exciting and wanted to help support it! We introduce you to the Vegain mass gainer protein powder, an excellent step forward towards a better tasting option for people looking for a vegan alternative for a weight gainer.
Needless to say, we wanted to introduce you to the brand, the product, and what stands it apart from the competition.
So we went ahead a spoke to the man himself, Edan Wolk, the owner of Vegain Supplements, and get the answers directly... Here is what he had to say:
1. WHO IS VEGAIN?
VEGAIN is a brand dedicated to creating plant-based supplements that are better for your performance and the planet, without compromise.
2. HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH IDEA OF THE COMPANY?
Edan (founder) has always been dedicated to fitness and physical health. However, whey-protein shakes and a diet heavy in animal proteins was making him feel sluggish, and worsening lactose intolerance made taking traditional supplements uncomfortable and counter-productive to his fitness goals. In 2016, he met Melissa (co-founder) who opened his eyes to the benefits of a plant-based diet. Dairy-free options that already existed were overpriced, didn't stack up in terms of protein and calories, and frankly, tasted awful. Together, Edan and Melissa dedicated themselves to creating products that were as good or better than their animal-based counterparts; without compromise on efficacy, taste or texture. Today, they are proud to offer what many are claiming is the best-tasting plant-based gainer they've ever had. VEGAIN means people who either can’t or don’t want to consume animal products due to allergies, unwanted side-effects or their ethics can pursue their health and fitness goals with nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
3. WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY, AND PRODUCTS STAND APART FROM THE COMPITION?
Our flagship product, the VEGAIN Plant-Based Mass Gainer, stands out from the competition through its use of clean, minimal ingredients - without any junk-fillers or gimmicky ingredients. Plus, unlike other plant-based proteins, VEGAIN’s Plant-Based Mass Gainer is 100% Soy Free.
Our Plant-Based Mass Gainer has over 50% more protein per gram than the competition, including leading whey-based gainers. We use the highest-quality, Canadian-grown ingredients specially processed in a way that produces the most creamy and delicious shake, without any grittiness or bitter aftertaste. No need to hide it in a smoothie; just add water and shake. Seriously.
VEGAIN is 100% Canadian Built. Conceptualised and created in Nanaimo, BC., using inputs grown in the Canadian Prairies, and manufactured in Ontario, our dedication to Canadian means we are able to monitor the quality of our ingredients at every step of the way, and put out the best product possible. VEGAIN is also 100% independently owned and operated by a team that is dedicated to the products and use them personally - meaning we will never cut down on quality to meet the expectations of shareholders or to capitalise on a trend.
4. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS A CUSTOMER SHOULD FEEL WHEN USING YOUR PRODUCT?
Nearly 75% of the global population is lactose-intolerant.‡ Because our Plant-Based Mass Gainer is 100% dairy-free, customers can get all the bulk they expect from a gainer, without the bloat. Making the switch also means losing the unwanted side-effects typically associated with whey, including sluggishness, digestive troubles, and acne. By choosing VEGAIN’s Plant-Based Mass Gainer, consumers are also making the better choice for the planet by drastically reducing their carbon footprint. ††
5. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE ABOUT YOU, THE COMPANY OR THE CUSTOMERS?
VEGAIN is growing. We have products in the works to release a full-stack, to the same exacting quality standards we’ve set for our Plant-Based Mass Gainer. 100% Vegan, made in Canada, and better for your performance, the planet and your stomach - without compromise.
