THE SCIENCE

A Complete package of nutrients

ENHANCED RECOVERY™ is a unique combination of ingredients designed to provide a complete package of nutrients to athletes. It includes omega-3 fatty acids with high-quality proteins, carnitine, vitamins D and E and natural antioxidants in a fruit juice beverage.

Our patent-pending process also stabilizes the omega-3 fatty acids to limit their oxidation, which allows athletes to consume a high amount of omega-3s.

the science behind the development

how the right nutrition enables smarter recovery

Omega-3 fatty acids have well-established anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Regular consumption of omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to reduce muscle damage/soreness/stiffness and augment strength gains from resistance training.

Our omega-3 fatty acids come from cod liver oil that is sustainably sourced from the North Atlantic Ocean.

Our protein matrix ensures that tired muscles are exposed to the blend of essential amino acids - including ample leucine - known to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. Leucine is a particularly potent stimulator of muscle protein synthesis when it is consumed with all other essential amino acids, and ENHANCED RECOVERY™ is formulated to accomplish just that.
The apple, pear and blackcurrant juice concentrates in ENHANCED RECOVERY™ provide rapidly absorbed carbohydrates (glucose, fructose and sucrose) to help stimulate fluid and nutrient absorption in the small intestine and aid in the restoration of muscle glycogen following hard training.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids that play an important role in cell membranes throughout the body. Cell membranes are not just inert walls surrounding cells, but are highly active components of virtually all cellular functions. The more omega-3s we consume, the more omega-3s are incorporated into cell membranes: a response that makes for healthier, more active cells that are resilient to the stress of hard training and competition.

The Process That Repairs and builds The Muscles

Hard training and competition causes micro-tears and other damage to muscle cells. To repair and recover, muscle cells rely on a process known as muscle protein synthesis (MPS). Damaged muscle proteins are repaired and new muscle proteins are added whenever MPS is consistently greater than muscle protein breakdown. 

ENHANCED RECOVERY™ contains whey proteins, collagen proteins and sunflower seed proteins to supply the nine essential amino acids – including the amino acid leucine – that quickly turn on and maintain MPS.

The Synergistic Effect

Each of the ingredients in ENHANCED RECOVERY™ have individual benefits, but when combined, those same ingredients result in even greater benefits. For example, the combination of omega-3s and protein has been shown to result in greater MPS and gains in muscle mass than if the ingredients are taken separately.
