AltProtein.com is your resource guide for information pertaining to alternative protein supplements and healthy living techniques.
We strive to provide honest, authentic content.
We strive on providing authentic, accurate, fully researched and vetted information, reviews, comparisons, alternatives to try, guides, recipes and so much more.
We care about the quality of the products we recommend. For example, while some people only care about the number of grams of protein per serving, AltProtein cares about the quality of protein. Most mainstream protein blends contain high levels of sugar, flavor masking agents and a panoply of artificial ingredients.
To this end, AltProtein researches effective ways to increase your protein intake, maximize your workouts, and treat your body with respect. Sure, you can pump yourself full of junk for a while and see some results, but this is a short-term mindset.
We believe in the long-term.
We believe health is a long-term goal that we can all strive to improve on a daily basis. Our goal here on AltProtein is to continually produce the highest-quality reviews, guides, and more to give our dedicated audience a place to come to get the latest information, real-deal, tested reviews, comparisons of products, health tips, and more.
Empowering people to make good decisions about their health by providing tested, researched, and trialed product reviews, comparisons, and recommendations.
To help people make informed, smart choices when it comes to their health and wellbeing. To give people alternatives to expensive, poor-quality supplements and health products that are better for their health and their wallets.
We believe that investing in your health should not cost you your first-born, which is why our editorial team strives to recommend the highest quality products, with proven, organic, natural ingredients that won’t break the bank. Many health supplements are sold through multi-level marketing programs, with expensive fees and pushy representatives. Here at AltProtein, we take a deeper look at these products, test them out, investigate the ingredients and hold them to a higher standard for our audience.

We also believe in giving safe, effective alternatives and product recommendations for every diet out there. Not all diet programs work for everyone. Some of us thrive eating a plant-based diet, while some find optimal health and wellbeing embracing a Keto or Paleo lifestyle. Our writers and editorial team come with a variety of personal diet preferences, so we test and trial a variety of products out there.
- Integrity: Not only in the products we recommend but in our research and brand approach
- Trustworthiness: If we say we’ve tested and tried a product, we have.
- Accessibility: An accessible approach to health. We believe everyone should be able to live their best lives. We strive to always find recommendations for every budget, every diet preference, making healthy lives accessible for all.
- Simplicity: You won’t have to know where we stand on a product.
- Goodness: Everything we do is about finding the ‘good’ products, in value and in ingredients.
Our Editorial Review
We take product recommendations very seriously around here. Before we recommend an alternative, a supplement, anything — we do extensive research. That starts with researching the ingredients each product is made of, accessing the right scientific studies, consulting experts in the space (nutritionists, naturopaths, medical doctors, nurses) and reading real people reviews and use cases of each product.
As much as possible, our writers and editorial team uses and tests each product in their real lives. We not only evaluate and discuss the health benefits of each product, but we can then talk about the taste, the mixability of a protein powder, things you might not find in other reviews, but that really matter to our audience.
Every article goes through an extensive editorial process as well to ensure high-quality, relevant content for our audience. We make sure that each article has a clear purpose, gives a clear and tested recommendation, or call to action and is helpful for our audience. We make sure to cite outside sources and document where we got our research from.
Every article is unique, authentic, original content that is not published anywhere else. If we quote or source someone else, we cite it. We also only cite reputable, trusted sources.
If we are making a recommendation of any kind, it’s because we like, use, and have tested the product out and would recommend it to our friends and family (and often do!).
We update key articles continuously so we are always recommending the latest products and keeping abreast of the latest health breakthroughs and research available. We also take product recalls very seriously and strive to make sure we are recommending products that are proven, effective and safe.
About the Founder
Owen Alexander started AltProtein with the mission to share his passion for the health industry with others. After learning about sub-par, expensive ‘health’ products that were being extensively marketed to people, he wanted to offer another solution.
Having worked in the personal training industry for over 5 years, he has personally seen clients struggle with making smart, affordable, accessible health choices. He knew there had to be another way, thus AltProtein was started.
Owen quickly found his passion for natural and healthy living was reaching an audience as he reviewed, tested, tried the best natural vegan, organic, and natural supplements and protein powders out there. His passion for all things vegan protein soon expanded as he discovered other high-quality products he loved as well and would test and try those out as well.
Owen built Alt Protein into a thriving resource that thousands of visitors love each day. What started off as a labor of love has now grown to a full-time operation and obsession for many, including the writers, editorial staff and experts Owen has brought on board to grow AltProtein into a leader in the online health and wellness industry.
Owen hopes to run the side full-time eventually and not have to work so much. For now, this is a labor of love. You can follow Owen on Twitter, check out AltProtein’s Pinterest Page, or Like us on Facebook.
