About Us

The Story

Alexander Kunz and Jeff Byers met in 1997 while serving on active duty in San Diego at SEAL Team One. They quickly became friends and have since operated together worldwide.  After many years of operating under the most physically and mentally demanding conditions, the quickly realized the market did not have a product that met their needs.  Unsatisfied with what the market offered, they set out to create a world-class product.

As all SEALs know it's the strength of the team that makes the difference.  We relied heavily on some of the best minds in the business to make FrogFuel and ProT GOLD a reality.

Alex and Jeff partnered with some of the top chemists and dietitians in the world to create FrogFuel and ProT GOLD.

WE STARTED THE COMPANY WITH 6 REQUIREMENTS:

  • Product Quality: Professional Grade. The same medical-grade protein used by health care professionals in various fields including wound and post-surgical care. It’s a complete protein with all amino acids that has been fortified and enhanced.
  • Bioavailability: Immediately Effective and Efficient. Proven 100% digestibility in less than 15 minutes.  Our proprietary protein is broken down with an enzyme using a unique process during production allowing it to be absorbed in its entirety by the user.
  • Convenient: Minimal Size, and Ease of Consumption. Super-concentrated allowing for 15 grams (all bioavailable) of protein in a 1oz serving. No mixing.
  • Suitable for Different Missions: Regular or Energized Protein. 80mg of caffeine (green coffee beans) provides energy to stay alert, focused, boost metabolism when needed but not so much to cause jitters.
  • Durable: Extreme Temperatures and Environments, Shelf Life. FrogFuel and ProT GOLD can be stored unrefrigerated in hot or cold temperatures unopened for 2 years. The packaging is durable and small enough to be carried with ease and without worry.
  • Unconventional: Technology Beyond Modern Science.   In addition to lean strong muscle mass, FrogFuel and ProT GOLD provides benefits beyond traditional protein supplements. FrogFuel provides benefits to the bones, skin, tendons, nails, hair, tendons, ligaments and is used extensively in the medical industry.
