Muscle recovery

Training and competing strain the muscles in the body and break them down. In order to avoid damage, the muscles must recover between workouts.

During the recovery phase, the muscles are built back up again and are made ready for new challenges.

Get ready faster

After a work out or competition that is so straining that the muscles get sore, it normally takes 3 to 4 days until the muscles have fully recovered. If you are careful to take correct food, drink and nourishment for the body, the muscles will use less time to recover before they are ready to train again.

Effects of our omega-3

The marine omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA help the cellular membrane to be more elastic and have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Increased levels of DHA and EPA in the blood can therefore induce a faster and improved muscle recovery.

These elements are important for good muscle recovery

  • Proper nutrition and drink immediately after training and competing
  • Sufficient food and drink
  • Sufficient sleep

Increase your muscle capacity

If the muscles have not recovered properly they will not be able to work at their maximum capacity. Training using with muscles that have not recovered properly also increases the likelihood of injuries. Elite Norwegian athletes who are regular users of Smartfish Recharge can testify to a reduction in the prevalence of muscle injuries.

Documented effect: Smartfish Recharge

A New clinical study with Smartfish Recharge High Protein demonstrates improved muscle recovery after eccentric excerise. The study was published in May 2016.

The study documents that Smartfish Recharge High Protein stimulates the muscle recovery more effectively than a protein drink and a carbohydrate control drink (placebo). The study was conducted by the University of Stirling.

The researchers have measured the effects of Smartfish Recharge High Protein on speed, flexibility, mobility, endurance and stress indicators in football players.
