THE INVENTOR

ENHANCED RECOVERY™ was researched and invented by Janne Sande Mathisen, a food and nutrition scientist from Oslo, Norway. Janne has created this patent-pending combination of stabilized omega-3 fatty acids together with a matrix of whey, collagen and sunflower seed proteins, black cumin oil, carnitine, vitamin D, and natural antioxidants with fruit juices that are high in anthocyanins. Janne is passionate about health, positive nutrition and the immense benefits of omega-3s for sports people, professional and amateur, young and old, active and retired.

“I wanted to create a nutritious product to help stimulate muscle repair and recovery after hard training. Knowing that omega-3 fatty acids were a crucial ingredient, after many years of testing, I found a way to incorporate and stabilize a lot of omega-3s in a great-tasting recovery beverage.”
