That means you can say “yes” now and decide later. You really have nothing to lose.

Why International Bestselling Author Mike Matthews Created Recharge

Recharge is a 100% natural post-workout drink that boosts muscle growth, improves recovery, and reduces muscle soreness.

How well our bodies recover from our workouts will determine how much muscle and strength we gain from them.

That’s why it’s not enough to just hammer away at the weights every week. You also have to watch your calories and macros, maintain good sleep hygiene, and avoid overtraining.

You can also speed up your post-workout recovery with supplementation, and that’s why we created Recharge.

The reason it’s so effective is simple:

Every ingredient is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research and is included at clinically effective levels.

Recharge is also naturally sweetened and flavored and contains no artificial food dyes or other chemical junk.

So, if you want to be able to push harder in the gym, recover better, and gain muscle and strength faster . . . you want to try Recharge today.

You won't be disappointed.

In fact, if you don’t absolutely love Recharge, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No form or return necessary.

You really can’t lose, so order now, and try Recharge risk-free and see if it’s for you.

Ingredients (7.11 g per serving)

Micronized Creatine Monohydrate (5 g per serving)

Creatine is a natural compound made up of the amino acids L-arginine, glycine, and methionine. Our body can produce creatine naturally, but it can also absorb and store creatine found in various foods like meat, eggs, and fish.

Creatine monohydrate is creatine with one molecule of water attached to it. This form of creatine has been around (and studied) for decades and is a tried-and-true winner, whereas other forms have failed to produce better results.

The creatine monohydrate in Recharge has also been micronized, which is a process that produces very fine particles that are more water soluble and easier to digest. Thus, micronized creatine monohydrate mixes better with liquid than the non-micronized form and is less likely to upset sensitive stomachs.

Research shows that supplementation with creatine monohydrate . . .

  • Boosts muscle and strength gain[1][2][3][4]
  • Improves anaerobic endurance[5][6][7][8][9][10]
  • Reduces muscle damage and soreness from exercise[11][12]
  • Increases the amount of glycogen your muscles can store[13]
  • Helps preserve lean mass and strength while restricting calories[14]

And in case you’re worried that creatine is bad for your kidneys, these claims have been horribly overblown.[15][16] Creatine supplementation isn’t advised in cases of kidney disease treated by diuretics, but in healthy people, both short- and long-term usage of creatine has no harmful side effects.[17][18][19]

The clinically effective dose of creatine monohydrate is 3 to 5 grams.[20]

Micronized Creatine Monohydrate

L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (2.1 g per serving)

L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid found mostly in meat and dairy products. It’s “conditionally essential,” which means our body can produce it as long as we’re also eating enough of two other amino acids it can’t produce, lysine and methionine.

L-tartrate is a salt used to increase the absorption of other nutrients.

L-carnitine serves several vital functions in the body, mostly related to the production of cellular energy.[21] Thus, it’s not surprising that most of the L-carnitine in your body is found in your muscles, which have to be able to quickly generate a tremendous amount of energy.[22]

Additionally, when you supplement with L-carnitine, you greatly increase your body’s carnitine stores, and your muscles’ stores in particular.[23] This is why research shows that supplementation with L-carnitine L-tartrate . . .

  • Reduces exercise-induced muscle damage and soreness[24][25][26]
  • Improves muscle repair[27]
  • Improves insulin sensitivity[28]

The clinically effective dose of L-carnitine L-tartrate is 1 to 2 grams.[29]

L-Carnitine L-Tartrate

Corosolic Acid (10.8 mg per serving)

Corosolic acid is a substance that comes from the leaves of the banaba plant.

It inhibits the activity of an enzyme that blunts insulin’s effects on cells called PTB1B, and by doing this, allows insulin to shuttle more nutrients into cells.

This is why research shows that supplementation with corosolic acid improves blood glucose control and enhances insulin signaling, which in turn enhances post-workout nutrient absorption.[30]

The clinically effective dose of corosolic acid is 10 milligrams.[31]

Corosolic Acid

100% Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

No Artificial Food Dyes or Other Chemical Junk

100% Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health.[32][33][34][35][36][37]

That’s why we use the natural sweeteners stevia and erythritol instead. Studies show that they’re not only safe but can also confer several health benefits, including better insulin sensitivity, a lower cholesterol profile, improved blood glucose control, potential anti-cancer effects, lower blood pressure and inflammation levels, and more.[38][39][40][41]

No Artificial Food Dyes or Other Chemical Junk

As with artificial sweeteners, studies show that artificial food dyes may cause negative effects in some people, including gastrointestinal toxicity and behavioral disorders.[42][43][44][45][46]

That’s why we use natural coloring derived from fruits and other foods, as well as natural flavoring.
