Legion Recharge Post-Workout is a natural post-workout drink with clinically proven ingredients. Not to mention, it’s also clinically dosed. Recharge supports muscle growth, improves recovery, and reduces muscle soreness. Plus, there are zero artificial ingredients and Recharge has been 3rd party tested for purity and potency.
Legion Recharge Post-Workout Ingredient Breakdown
Micronized Creatine Monohydrate - 5 Grams
Creatine consists of three amino acids - L-arginine, glycine, and methionine. Our body manufactures creatine naturally. Plus, it absorbs and stores the creatine found naturally in various foods like eggs, meat, and fish.
Supplemental creatine monohydrate is creatine that has one molecule of water attached to it. This is creatine that has been around as a supplement since the early 90s. It has also been researched more than any other supplement. Creatine is a proven winner, even over other forms of creatine. No other form has been proven to be more effective.
Legion Recharge Post-Workout uses micronized creatine monohydrate. This is a process that produces very fine particles that make the creatine much more water-soluble and easier to digest. Therefore, micronized creatine monohydrate mixes better with liquid than the non-micronized form. Plus, it is less likely to upset sensitive stomachs or cause gastric discomfort.
Research shows that creatine monohydrate has the following benefits.
- It increases strength and muscle gains
- Creatine improves anaerobic endurance
- It decreases muscle damage and post-workout muscle soreness
- Creatine increases the amount of glycogen your muscles are able to store
- It helps preserve lean mass and strength during times of calorie restriction
The clinically effective dose of creatine monohydrate ranges from 3 to 5 grams, with 5 grams being the standard. (1, 2, 3)
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate - 2.1 Grams
L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that’s found mainly in dairy and meat products. It’s a “conditionally essential” amino acid, which means your body can produce it as long as you’re also eating enough of two other amino acids it can’t produce, lysine and methionine. Also, these types of amino acids deplete in times of stress. Therefore, supplementation makes a lot of sense.
L-tartrate is a salt that’s used to increase the absorption of other nutrients.
L-carnitine performs several important functions in the body. Most of them are related to the body’s production of cellular energy. In addition, the majority of L-carnitine in your body is located in your muscles. One reason for this is that your muscles have to generate a tremendous amount of ATP cellular energy quickly.
In addition, when you supplement with L-carnitine, you increase your body’s natural stores of carnitine, specifically in your muscles. This is the reason research shows that supplementation with L-carnitine L-tartrate (LCLT) will provide the following benefits.
- LCLT lowers exercise-induced muscle damage and post-workout soreness
- It enhances muscle repair and recovery
- LCLT improves insulin sensitivity
- It supports cellular energy production (ATP)
The clinically effective dose of L-carnitine L-tartrate is 1 to 2 grams. (4, 5, 6, 7)
Corosolic Acid (from Banaba) (Extract 20%) - 10.5 mg
Corosolic acid is a compound taken from the leaves of the banaba plant. It works by blocking the activity of the PTB1B enzyme. This enzyme blunts the effects of insulin’s effects on your muscle cells. By blocking this effect, insulin can shuttle more nutrients into your muscle cells. This is huge. While insulin has its negative effects, it is, after all, one of the body’s most powerful anabolic hormones.
Research shows that supplementing corosolic acid improves blood glucose control and enhances insulin signaling. This enhances nutrient absorption post-workout.
The clinically effective dose of corosolic acid is 10 milligrams. (8)
