Why We Use 20 Grams of High-Quality Protein in ENHANCED RECOVERY™ Omega-3 Sports Drink

ENHANCED RECOVERY™ Omega-3 Sports Drink was scientifically formulated to support the body’s natural system of muscle protein synthesis, the natural process that rebuilds and repairs muscles after intense workouts. The drink’s patent-pending combination of ingredients features 20 grams of protein and 1600mg of stabilized omega-3s, in addition to other important supporting nutrients.

Why 20 grams of protein? Because science says that’s the ideal amount of high-quality protein needed to activate and maintain muscle protein synthesis.

“In our 2014 study of whey protein, we found that for trained young males with an average 80 kg (176 pounds) body mass, 20 grams of high-quality protein in a single serving was sufficient to maximally promote the muscle remodeling response.” ~Oliver C Witard, Ph.D. and senior lecturer-researcher in nutrition/metabolism at the Centre of Human & Applied Physiological Sciences, Kings College, London

ENHANCED RECOVERY™ delivers exactly that amount of high-quality protein – 20 grams.

If 20 grams of protein is helpful, would more be even better?

According to Dr. Witard, the answer is no. As a matter of fact, he states that your body will eliminate anything beyond the 20 grams it can use.

What he does recommend to enhance the action of the protein is the addition of omega-3 fatty acids, which are another key component of ENHANCED RECOVERY™ Omega-3 Sports Drink.

Our omega-3 profile includes EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), expertly blended with our 20 grams of high-quality protein (16g whey, 4g collagen with 2g leucine + 0.5g carnitine), nutrient-absorption-stimulating carbohydrates, vitamins D and E, and natural antioxidants in a great-tasting fruit juice beverage.

The unique patent-pending combination of nutrients in ENHANCED RECOVERY™ Omega-3 Sports Drink offers a convenient way to get the ideal amount of protein and omega-3 fatty acids needed to support your body on its journey to complete muscle recovery.
