Legion Recharge Post Workout Supplement - Blue Raspberry
When Legion Athletics set out to create RECHARGE, they started with the tried-and-true base of creatine — one of the most researched and scientifically validated dietary supplements in the world of sports nutrition.
Instead of hyping up fancy — sounding forms scientifically proven to be no more effective than creatine monohydrate, however, we decided to focus on what else we could include in the product to make it more effective for increasing muscle size and strength and improving recovery.
Let’s take a look at the formulation.
Creatine is a substance found naturally in the body and in foods like red meat and is the subject of over 200 clinical studies.
Research shows that supplementation with creatine...
- Helps build muscle and improve strength 
- Improves anaerobic endurance 
- Reduces muscle damage and soreness from exercise 
- Increases the amount of glycogen your muscles can store 
- Helps preserve lean mass and strength while restricting calories 
People with kidney disease are not advised to supplement with creatine, however.
Due to creatine’s proven effectiveness and safety, we believe that everyone engaging in regular resistance training or high-intensity cardiovascular exercises should supplement with it.
The most common clinical program for creatine supplementation is a loading period, followed by 3-5 grams per day. 
EACH SERVING OF RECHARGE CONTAINS 5 GRAMS OF CREATINE MONOHYDRATE
Carnitine is a compound that your body produces from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It plays a vital role in the generation of cellular energy, and L-tartrate is a salt used to increase the absorption of other nutrients.
Research shows that supplementation with L-carnitine L-tartrate...
- Reduces exercise-induced muscle damage and soreness 
- Improves muscle repair 
- Improves insulin sensitivity 
The clinically effective dosage of L-carnitine L-tartrate is 1 to 2 grams per day. 
EACH SERVING OF RECHARGE CONTAINS 2.1 GRAMS OF L-CARNITINE L-TARTRATE
Corosolic acid comes from the leaves of the banaba plant.
Research shows that supplementation with corosolic acid improves blood glucose control and enhances the signaling of insulin, thus magnifying the effects of post-workout carbohydrate consumption.
The clinically effective dosage of corosolic acid is between 10 and 15 mg. 
EACH SERVING OF RECHARGE CONTAINS 10.5 MG OF COROSOLIC ACID PER SERVING
Delicious with no artificial sweeteners, flavoring, food dyes, or fillers
While the clinically effective dosages of key ingredients alone puts RECHARGE light years ahead of other post-workouts on the market, there’s still more that sets it apart: what we leave out.
RECHARGE is naturally sweetened. While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of artificial sweeteners may indeed be harmful to our health, and that more research is needed. 
And while artificial flavors seem to be benign, they just aren’t necessary, natural flavors taste equally good.
We've chosen to stay on the safe side and use the natural sweeteners stevia and erythritol instead. Stevia is a sweet herb in the Chrysanthemum family, and research has shown that it can:
- Increase insulin sensitivity 
- Help regulate blood glucose levels 
- Offer anti-carcinogenic properties 
- Decrease oxidative stress associated with eating large amounts of carbohydrates 
- Reduce blood pressure and inflammation in the body 
- Lower bad cholesterol levels 
- Protect the kidneys 
And in case you’re worried that naturally sweetened means horrible tasting, you can rest easy.We’ve taken special care to ensure that RECHARGE tastes delicious whether it's mixed in water, milk, or dairy substitutes like rice, oat, and almond milk.
We don’t use artificial food dyes in any of our products. Many pre-workout drinks contain artificial dyes, known as azo dyes, such as FD&C Yellow #5 (tartrazine), FD&C Blue #1 (Brilliant Blue), FD&C Red No. 40 (Allura Red AC), and others.
Like artificial sweeteners, consumption of azo dyes might not be as harmful as some claim, but there is evidence that these chemicals can cause various negative effects in the body. 
RECHARGE contains absolutely no “label stuffing” ingredients. We have a simple standard that we live by: every active ingredient used in LEGION products must be backed by published scientific literature and must be integrated at clinically effective dosages.
