More About Blonyx

Blonyx is an intelligent supplement brand focused on providing products to elite level athletes.

We believe in challenging the supplement industry status quo. We do this by ignoring the marketing led demand for the usual whey protein and pre-workout formulas and instead use our scientific expertise to survey the published science to select ingredients that simply have the best research profiles.

The result is a range of carefully selected products that are safe, free of fillers or additives and highly effective at improving performance. We keep them simple so that they are easy to research - we want the athletes using our products to understand what they are putting in their bodies.

We believe that this is our responsibility to the elite level athletes we provide products to. We want to be seen as the bridge between the research coming out of universities and athletic institutes and the competitor on the training floor.
