The TRUWILD journey began when co-founders Zac and Nathan decided to ditch daily hours in the gym in pursuit of more adventurous activities like surfing, hiking, and cycling. However, they soon realized that being an outdoor athlete requires different supplementation. They abandoned their high-stimulant-based pre-workout drinks that left them fatigued, dehydrated, and distracted in search of something better.
In 2017, the outdoor athletes and roommates from Newport Beach, Calif., created TRUWILD, a company that uses natural science to formulate the most effective nutritional products. After many global outdoor adventures, they soon realized that the strong, energetic locals turned to nature to help increase their performance. TRUWILD’s handcrafted, whole-food ingredients come from around the world and are inspired by their exotic travels to places like Peru, Tanzania, and Patagonia.
At TRUWILD, our goal is to help outdoor athletes maximize their passion. Our products have the perfect combination to provide energy, endurance, rehydration, gut health, immune support and recovery needed to challenge the outdoors and turn it into a thrilling playground. Stay wild for life!
Co-Founder, Strategist, & Manifestor
When you ditch your prom to surf the Maldives instead, you know you’re dedicated to the outdoors. It’s thrill-seeking adventures like these that fuel Zac. He’s an outdoor athlete who has surfed three out of the five continents, snowboarded the Northern and Southern Hemisphere in the same year, and went heli-skiing in British Columbia, Canada. When he’s not conquering Mt. Kilimanjaro or exploring his favorite places like Japan and Buenos Aries, he’s focused on taking TRUWILD to the next level. The all-natural products help him continue exploring the world. So what’s his next wild adventure on the list? Mountain biking in Whistler, Canada.
Co-Founder, Product Development, & Ingredient Guru
When you hike 15 miles through the night to get to a Tanzanian hospital after climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and getting altitude sickness at 17,000 feet, you know you’re a fighter. Nate seeks wild adventure wherever he goes. When he’s not being blessed by Buddhist Monks in China, exploring the Petra Ruins, or hiking the Swiss Alps in Zermatt, this ingredient guru ensures that TRUWILD offers the highest-quality products designed for thrill-seekers just like him. Nate’s mission was to make sure that TRUWILD uses whole foods and ingredients from nature, not a lab, to naturally fuel outdoor athletes. And with more than 25 countries under his belt, there’s no doubt that more wild adventures and interesting tales are ahead.
Zac & Nate were roommates in Newport Beach and were constantly traveling the world. One day while sharing different adventures stories and talking about the people & culture they came up with the concept of TRUWILD. They wanted to bring the adventure back to everyone so they too could experience the lifestyle the world has to offer. TRUWILD is about maximizing your true potential, using natural whole-food ingredients from the wild, while appreciating the outdoors and turning it into our playground.
