Branched Chain Amino Acids (Isoleucine, Leucine, Valine) are naturally occurring and play an important role in protein synthesis to promote muscle growth. BCAAs are a subset of Essential Amino Acids (EAAs). Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which in turn are the building block of all life on this planet, including our bodies. Of the 20 amino acids our bodies need to function properly, 9 are classified as “essential”. EAAs are so classified because they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained from our diet. EAAs play an important role in many of the body’s vital processes, including protein synthesis, muscle growth, fat metabolism, immune function and detoxification, to name but a few.

Kick Ass Ingredients

Plant protein supplements, long believed to be inferior to animal proteins, have recently come into their own. Several studies now show that plant proteins can be just as effective as whey in promoting muscle growth and strength.

Pea Protein Isolate

is the perfect plant-based protein for muscle-building and strength, with a protein content of 80% and all 9 Essential Amino Acids (EAAs). Although a little low on the EAA methionine, this is easily remedied by mixing it with brown rice protein. Pea protein isolate is a great source of BCAAs, including arginine for healthy blood flow, and leucine, isoleucine and valine to promote muscle growth.

Rice Protein Concentrate

is made by introducing an enzyme to ground rice to separate the carbohydrates from the protein. Most rice protein concentrate delivers 80-85% of protein. As with pea protein, rice is not a complete protein and it falls short on lysine, another EAA. Fortunately, pea protein has more than adequate levels of lysine, so by combining these two proteins the result is a blend that easily qualifies as a complete protein.


is a protein that is abundant in the human body and is one of the building blocks of connective tissue, such as skin, tendons and cartilage. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen – hello wrinkles! – and supplementation becomes more important. Hydrolyzed collagen has been broken down into smaller protein pieces known as peptides for easier absorption. Collagen peptides dissolve easily in cold or hot liquids. Bovine collagen is derived from cows so is therefore not suitable for vegetarians or vegans.


is the world’s most popular protein powder as it is an excellent source of high quality protein. Kick Ass products use whey protein concentrate with over 80% protein. Whey is high in leucine, an amino acid known for promoting muscle growth, and is often included in a strength training regimen. As a dairy product, whey is not suitable for vegans or for people sensitive to lactose, the sugar found in milk. In such cases, plant proteins are clearly the better option.

consists of shorter chains of fats, known as Medium Chain Triglycerides. Unlike other fats, MCTs do not need to be broken down further in the liver and are readily available as a source of energy. On a keto diet – low carb/high fat – MCTs are converted into ketones, not stored as body fat, thereby promoting weight loss. MCT powder offers all the benefits of the oil but without any of the oily taste or texture, and mixes easily in beverages.

Acacia Fibre

is sourced from the sap of the Acacia Senegal tree. It is high in soluble fibre, a type of dietary fibre that dissolves in water and turns to gel during digestion. It may help with weight management as it promotes a feeling of fullness and also supports gut health. Acacia fibre is a prebiotic, a type of fibre that supports the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines.


are nutrient-dense foods, usually plant-based, rich in micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants and enzymes. The Kick Ass range includes several superfoods, including lucuma fruit powder, almond meal, maca, baobab, cacao and rosehip.

Stevia Leaf Extract

is derived from the stevia plant and is an increasingly popular sweetener. It has zero-calories and comes from a natural source, unlike artificial sweeteners. It is hundreds of times sweeter than sugar, so only about 80-100 mg is required to sweeten a single serving of Kick Ass protein blends. The sweet elements are extracted to exclude the bitter aftertaste that is sometimes associated with raw stevia leaf.

Functional Ingredients


is a proprietary blend of five enzymes to aid proper digestion and promote greater nutrient absorption. Amylase assists in the breakdown of carbohydrates; protease is for protein; lipase for fats; cellulase is for cellulose, releasing nutrients in fruit and vegetables; and lactase is useful for lactose intolerance.


is a clinically validated probiotic preparation containing Bacillus coagulans MTCC 5856. Probiotics are live bacteria that line the digestive tract and promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria, known as the microbiome, for overall health and wellness. LactoSpore® is a safe and effective way to support the “friendly bacteria” in your gut. Kick Ass blends containing LactoSpore® provide 1 Billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) per serving.

Elderberry Extract

 is made from black elderberries (Sambucus nigra), a berry native to Europe and North America. Elderberries are rich in flavonoids, such as anthocyanins, a plant pigment that gives the berries its deep purple colour. Other flavonoids in elderberries include quercetin and rutin. Flavonoids have potent antioxidant properties that help the body fight free radicals, and play an important role in preventing chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Elderberries also provide immune system support to help avoid colds and flu or lessen the symptoms.

Ashwagandha Root Extract

is standardised to contain a minimum of 2.5% Withanolides and 0.25% Withaferin A, analyzed as per the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) monograph (HPLC). Ashwagandha is a well-known adaptogen used to balance mood and provide support for stress and anxiety. Studies have shown that ashwagandha is effective in improving muscle size and strength. It also may help to sharpen focus and improve memory.

Lion’s Mane Extract

is derived from a medicinal mushroom that has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. It is often used for its bio-active substances, including antioxidants, and is believed to support overall cognitive health. Lion’s mane can be used to support a healthy nervous system and promote mental clarity and focus. Due it’s anti-inflammatory properties, lion’s mane may also offer protection against neurodegenerative diseases.

Our registered office is at 13/14 Scotia Park, 53 Nguni Way, Waterfall, 3610, KZN, South Africa.

This is a statement to tell you our policy about all information that we record about you. It covers both information that could identify you and information that could not.

We are extremely concerned to protect your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with the South African law and with the laws of all jurisdictions of which we are aware. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, do please tell us.

We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our web site immediately.

Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.

Here is a list of the information we collect from you, either through our web site or because you give it to us in some other way, and why it is necessary to collect it:

  1. Business and personal information

This includes basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details and also includes all information given to us in the course of your business and ours, such as information you give us in your capacity as our client. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. It is not used for any other purpose. We expect you to reciprocate this policy.

This information is used:

    1. to provide you with the services which you request;
    2. for verifying your identity for security purposes;
    3. for marketing our services and products;
    4. information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.

We keep information, which forms part of our business record for a minimum of six years. That is because we may need it in some way to support a claim or defence in court. That is also the period within which our tax collecting authorities may demand to know it.

  1. Market place information

When we obtain information from you specifically to enable you to buy a service offered on our web site by some other person, we assume that in giving us your information, you are also giving us permission to pass it to the relevant person.

This information is recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. We shall not under any circumstances, divulge your e-mail address to any person who is not an employee or contractor of ours and who does not need to know, either generally or specifically. This information is used:

    1. to correspond with you or deal with you as you expect;
    2. in a collective way not referable to any particular individual, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of our site;
    3. to send you news about the services to which you have signed up;
    4. to tell you about other of our services or services of sister web sites.

  1. Website usage information

We may use software embedded in our website (such as JavaScript) to collect information about pages you view and how you have reached them, what you do when you visit a page, the length of time you remain on the page, and how we perform in providing content to you.

At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website of PayFast, or some other reputable payment service provider. That page may be dressed in our “livery”, but it is not controlled by us. Our staff and contractors never have access to it.

  1. Note on padlock symbols and other trust marks

Many companies offer certification and an icon or other small graphic to prove to site visitors that the site is safe. Some certify to a high level of safety. Others are more concerned to take our money than to provide a useful service. We do not handle information about your credit card so do not subscribe to any such service.

  1. Financial information relating to your credit cards

We may keep your financial information to provide you with a better shopping experience next time you visit us and to prevent fraud.

We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates to verify our identity to your browser, and to encrypt any data you give us when you buy, including financial information such as credit or debit card numbers. Our SSL certificate encryption level is 128-bit/256-bit. Whenever we ask for financial information, you can check that SSL is being used by looking for a closed padlock symbol or other trust mark in your browser URL bar or toolbar.

We take the following measures to protect your financial information:

    1. We keep your financial information encrypted on our servers.
    2. We do not keep all your data, so as to prevent the possibility of our duplicating a transaction without a new instruction from you.
    3. Access to your information is restricted to authorised staff only.
    4. We automatically delete your information when the card expires.
    5. If we ask you questions about your financial information, we shall show partial detail [the first four OR the last four digits of the debit or credit card number], only enough to identify the card(s) to which we refer.
  1. Financial information about your direct debit

When you have agreed to set up a direct debit arrangement, the information you have given to us is passed to our own bank Standard Bank for processing according to our instructions. We do / do not keep a copy.

We are registered under the direct debit guarantee scheme. (This provides for the customer’s bank to refund disputed payments without question, pending further investigation. Direct debits can only be set up for payments to beneficiaries that are approved “originators” of direct debits. In order to be approved, these beneficiaries are subjected to careful vetting procedures. Once approved, they are required to give indemnity guarantees through their banks.)

  1. Credit reference

To assist in combating fraud, we share information with credit reference agencies, so far as it relates to clients or customers who instruct their credit card issuer to cancel payment to us without having first provided an acceptable reason to us and given us the opportunity to refund their money.

Website privacy notice

Paragraph Specific notes

Notes referable to specific numbered paragraphs

1 Business and Personal information

This is information collected by most web sites. What you do with it is obvious but including it here completes the picture.

2 Market place information

To use if you take orders on your web site for a third party.

3 Your domain name and e-mail address

This is information collected by most web sites. Basic and obvious.

4 Information you post on our website

This is an area often omitted from suggested text, but it may be important. The fact that someone posts insensitive or forbidden or stupid information does not give you a licence to use it without care. However, well drawn terms and conditions will make clear that contractually you have a licence to use any such information as you decide.

5 Website usage information

This information is unlikely to be personally identifiable.

6 Financial information relating to your credit cards

In this and the following paragraphs we have given you several alternatives. Select the one that most accurately reflects the way you do business.

7&8 Alternative paragraphs. You can choose that suits you best.

9 Financial information about your direct debits

Provides for direct debit arrangements and explains in plain English how they work.

10 Credit reference

We suggest that you leave this paragraph in place even if you have no immediate intention of liaising with debt collectors. It may be a useful reminder to users of your web site.

11 Third party advertising

This is a simple statement of the obvious. In practice, the demons that appear in our systems are usually cookies of some sort, placed by these third parties, often with the connivance of the webmaster of a site based far away.

15 Cookies

Regulation of cookies is probably the single most important element of the new regulations. You must identify what cookies you use and why so as to give a user of your site notice of what you are planting on his hard disk. It is particularly important to mention any cookie that may prove objectionable to someone. The purpose of this document is to tell those who might use your web site what will happen if they do. There are thousands of possible use of cookies. We have mentioned a few of the most obvious. Add your own. (Please tell us of any we have missed which are also obvious!)

16 to 28 We have no comment on these paragraphs. Select which apply to you.

21 “Remarketing” is the process whereby a visitor to your site is tagged and that tag picked up by Google or some other re-marketing service provider when your visitor goes to some other site that you have decided may be relevant to yours. If you are not immediately familiar with re-marketing, you should delete the provision. If you do use re-marketing, you should choose your words carefully in how you describe what may be regarded as an intrusive practice. More information is at: 

29 Data may be “processed” outside South Africa

It is important that this information is disclosed to comply with the law.
