About Us

Our Story

In 2012 Alexander Kunz & Jeff Byers (both former US Navy SEALs and disabled veterans) decided to start OP2 Labs after recognizing the need for a better tasting, more functional, powerful, and clinically proven protein product. Over the next few years they conducted countless hours of research, reviewing clinical science, international studies, and formulations.

The pair later partnered with some of the top chemists and medical professionals in the world. Together they developed a convenient, concentrated, ready-to-drink product that is safe for people with allergies or taking medication, is rapidly and easily assimilated by the body, and effectively treats a wide variety of indications.
