What is the taste of Recharge?
Recharge products contain over 80% juice from fruits and berries which create a base for fresh and fruity flavors. Recharge has a smoothie-like texture with Recharge High Protein being the drink with the thickest texture.
What is the source of omega-3 fatty acids in Recharge?
The omega-3 fatty acids in Recharge comes from fish oil of wild stocks of cod caught in Lofoten and north of Lofoten along the Norwegian coast. The fish oil is obtained from the cod’s liver, a largely unexploited part of the fish, ensuring that the rest of the fish can be a food source.
What are omega-3 fatty acids?
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids, meaning that they contain more than one cis- double bond in the fatty-acid molecule. A variety of omega-3 fatty acids exist with different properties and structures depending on the numbers and placements of additional double bonds. The omega 3-fatty acid ALA (α-linolenic acid) is naturally found in foods including flaxseeds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and their oils. The omega-3 fatty acids eicosatetraenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are found mainly in oily fish, cod liver and algae. Not all omega-3 fatty acids can be synthesized in the body, and thus, need to be provided through the diet. The long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA can be synthesized from ALA, but due to low conversion efficiency, it is recommended to consume foods rich in EPA and DHA.
What is special about the omega-3 fatty acids in Recharge?

How many milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids do Recharge products contain per drink?

What are branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs)?
Eight of the total 20 amino acids that exist are essential. Three of the essential amino acids have a branched-like structure and include Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. Leucine has been found to be particularly important because this amino acid is needed in adequate amounts in each meal to ensure optimal effect of muscle protein synthesis, a process in which protein is produced to repair muscle damage caused by intense exercise.

-Recharge High Protein: 15 g
