KILL CLIFF // RECOVERY DRINKS
When former Navy Seal Todd Ehrlich launched Kill Cliff in 2011, his mission was to create a Recovery Performance drink, which would provide the proper nutrients to fuel performance and aid in recovery.

The results and the taste don’t disappoint. Kill Cliff was founded with a long-term vision to serve a greater purpose of humility, and become the largest contributor to the Navy Seal Foundation.
