Tayler Harris is Gnarly
Tayler Harris Recommends
Gnarly Whey is produced from New Zealand cows that are free to roam in green pastures, with clean air, water (and with their friends). It’s the ideal environment to produce high quality protein. These cows are not fed on organic soy or corn, but actual grass. This means you are getting the cleanest whey available.
