The Top Articles and New Products of 2020

This past year will go down as one of the most challenging in human history, marked by a pandemic, protests, and a contentious presidential election (oh, and don’t forget the UFOs the government finally admitted to). While it’s tempting to look back on it all as a bummer year we’d like to forget, it’s better to think of it as a time of growth, change, and a chance for people to come together, support one another, and gain greater understanding.

Through it all, Onnit continued to put out some of its best content yet, including articles on how to support the immune system, get a great workout at home, and stay healthy and active no matter what (even if the aliens come!). We also launched a bunch of new foods, supplements, and apparel, ranging from new flavors of Alpha BRAIN® Instant and high-protein snacks to T-shirts, tank tops, racerbacks, and more.

Here’s what you might have missed in, shall we say, the funkiest year any of us can remember.
