“We are excited to work with Europa, the nation’s largest supplement distributor. We are equally excited to use Protica’s formula because it’s trusted and proven”, says Tom Shaver, president of BioBev.
Protica’s protein formula, Actinase®, is supported by university and hospital studies, and is in more protein-dense drinks than any other protein formulation on the market.
