What is Orgain®?

Orgain® is a line of nutritional products including nutrition shakes, protein powder, and protein bars that are incredibly delicious and packed with the healthiest and highest quality ingredients in the world. Just as important as what’s in Orgain® is what’s not in Orgain:® all of our products are non-GMO, gluten free, soy free, and do not contain artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives; and nearly all Orgain products are certified Organic.

Why is it called Orgain®?

The name Orgain® was created by the founder of the company, Dr. Andrew Abraham, by combining the words “organic” and “gain.” Orgain has a deep commitment to using organic ingredients, and we believe that people can “gain health, gain energy, and gain life” through clean, wholesome nutrition. Dr. Abraham has personally experienced dramatically improved health and energy by making changes to his diet.

What’s the story behind Orgain®?

Orgain® was founded in 2008 by Andrew Abraham, M.D., a physician and cancer survivor. After being diagnosed with cancer, Dr. Abraham underwent extensive treatment, forcing him to rely on liquid nutrition. However, he found that most “nutritional” drinks were anything but. “Mainstream brands were loaded with high fructose corn syrup, genetically modified soy, artificial flavors, and preservatives, and they tasted horrible. I created Orgain® out of necessity and made it my mission to marry the highest quality ingredients with great taste.”

Who can drink Orgain®?

We’ve created Orgain products that are perfect for nearly every user and any occasion. These include:

  • People with busy and active lifestyles
  • People who eat breakfast (or other meals) on-the-go
  • Athletes and weekend warriors
  • People who require liquid nutrition for medical conditions or other reasons
  • Vegetarians and vegans*
  • For pre- or post-workout replenishment
  • For organic, nutrient-dense energy any time
  • For weight management (weight gain or weight loss)
  • As a nutritionally complete base for smoothies

Why does Orgain® taste so much better than other nutritional products?

The inspiration for the Orgain® formulations come from Dr. Abraham’s kitchen, so the focus is always on real, food-based ingredients. Using premium ingredients like organic cocoa, organic vanilla beans and real organic fruits and veggies makes for delicious products that taste like they come from the kitchen instead of a lab.
