CytoSport™ was founded in 1998 by the father/son team of Greg and Mike Pickett. Since then it has grown into a premier manufacturer of sports-oriented nutritional products that address the needs of athletes and active lifestyle individuals at every level. With every product and every decision, we pursue quality and taste with the athlete in mind.
When industry experts and scientists bring us an idea, we listen. When your performance inspires us, we act. We’re about innovation. Taste is at the forefront of everything we do. People expect CytoSport products to work and taste good. That’s become a CytoSport promise. We listen to our bodies and, knowing you listen to yours, we listen to you.
At CytoSport, we feel fortunate to be a part of your success! To help you do what you do best. To help you achieve goals. To help you live healthy. To help you get a better time. To finish the race. To put up more weight. To have a “good run.” To leave the gym or practice feeling like there is still more in you. Our motto at CytoSport is “Driven by Science – Inspired by Performance”; We rely on science to create the best products we can. Thank you for inspiring us to do so. Be safe. Play hard. Keep it up. CytoSport will do the same.
Our 150,000 sq ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is where we produce all of our powder products and pre-blends for ready-to-drink products. It is also where we exercise complete control over our brands – from what goes into the mix to what goes into the package.
This setup provides a critical speed to market advantage over the competition. And it gives our devoted following of consumers – high school, college, pro athletes and coaches alike – peace of mind knowing the safety, efficacy, and authenticity of the CytoSport brands is a given.
CytoSport ™ products are a completely safe, effective, and legal alternative trusted by athletes worldwide who demand the highest level of performance from themselves and from the nutritional support products they use.
Mike Bottom, Former Co-Head Men's Swimming Coach at the Cal-Berkeley, who coached athletes from five different countries in the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney, stands behind CytoSport products. His athletes medaled seven times at the Sydney games. Mike's athletes have also won NCAA championships and have been tested by the NCAA drug testing board. His athletes have been training with CytoSport products since our inception.
Dr. George Brooks, Ph.D. sits on the board of advisors for CytoSport. During his graduate studies at the University of Michigan, his extensive research in the areas of "Oxygen Debt" and "Anaerobic Threshold" lead to several hypotheses and fundamental revisions in the understanding of the metabolic response to exercise. The knowledge gained in these efforts led to the invention of PolyLactate and the formulation of the original Cytomax.
Dr. Brooks was recognized for his lifetime of outstanding scientific contributions related to sports medicine and exercise science at the 2007 Awards and Tributes Committee of the American College of Sports Medicine. He was awarded the Honor Award at the Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The ACSM Honor Award is the highest award of the College given to only one individual each year.
It’s our mission to provide the highest quality nutritional products to professional and amateur athletes striving to reach their potential. We are a family run business that wholly owns our manufacturing and packaging equipment and facilities. So that, from raw material to finished products, we control the process. We don't merely put our label on someone else's bottle or jug. Controlling these factors is just one example of how we guarantee your 100% satisfaction.
