Our bodies need all of the nine essential amino acids (EAAs) in order to build muscle. Don’t shortchange your results during this important anabolic window by using a post-workout product that only contains BCAAs.
Although BCAAs are important pre- and intra-workout for muscle energy, post workout is when you need a full spectrum amino acid profile for maximum growth and recovery.
Each serving contains 28 g of non-GMO whey protein isolate, 7 g of glutamine and glutamic acid (4 g naturally occurring from WPI + 3 g of free-form L-glutamine), patented BetaPower® (betaine), patented Creatine HCl and the super enzyme ProHydrolase®, which breaks down (hydrolyzes) whey protein into smaller particle sizes for enhanced absorption. The difference between hydrolyzed whey and RE-KAGED’s whey protein isolate plus ProHydrolase® is that with RE-KAGED® the protein is hydrolyzed at the point of consumption versus being chemically treated during the manufacturing process into very small peptides and then dried.
As a matter of fact, if you don’t drink RE-KAGED® within 15-20 minutes of mixing you will start to taste the flavor get bitter like hydrolyzed whey protein. This is due to the ability of ProHydrolase® to rapidly hydrolyze (break down) the whey protein isolate.
If you are looking for another product to compare RE-KAGED® with, you are wasting your time! Nothing on the market even comes close or has the same ingredients. Many of the ingredients we use are unique and exclusive to Kaged Muscle®, which means you will only get them from Kaged Muscle®.
You train to failure and eat clean all day - why then drink a "bodybuilding supplement" loaded with:
Most bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts work out for less than 2 hours each day. During workouts there are several rests between sets so the actual workload does not burn enough glycogen to justify supplementing with fast-acting carbs for the majority of us.
Fast-acting carbs, however, can be effective for triathletes, long-distance runners, cyclists, and events that last more than 3 hours with continuous activity.
The answer is simple – all of our ingredients are third-party tested for purity and quality! In return for a premium price, Kaged Muscle® vendors and manufacturers commit to strict ethical, quality, and testing standards, ensuring our ingredients are manufactured with care.
Whey protein isolate is compared to gold by many bodybuilders and athletes.
Micropure® Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) is the first of a new generation of dairy ingredients which combine premium nutrition, enhanced functionality, and ultra-clear solubility.
COMPLETE SOURCE OF: ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS (EAAs), CONDITIONALLY ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS (CAAs), and NON-ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS (NAAs)
Being an easy-to-digest protein source, whey protein isolate breaks down quickly to provide a rapid influx of aminos to muscles, making it a perfect post-workout protein option.
Whey protein is one of the richest sources of all nine essential amino acids that the body is unable to produce on its own.* However, whey protein must first be processed into a usable form, which includes essential amino acids and beneficial peptides (i.e., di and tripeptides).*
To be effective, whey protein must be broken down into a smaller particle size within approximately 90 minutes of consumption. This transit time represents the time from which the whey powder passes from the stomach through the small intestine where digestion/absorption primarily occurs; from there it will be assembled into muscle protein (a bio-usable form).
To visualize this process, think of a large table being moved into a room through a door that is too small. The table must first be broken down to pass through the doorway before it can be reassembled and used. Undigested whey protein will simply be excreted from the body, resulting in wasted amino acids.
When whey protein is not broken down into the smallest composition, large peptides are created that can cause discomfort such as bloating, nausea, and cramping. These symptoms should not be confused with lactose intolerance. Lactose is not present in whey isolates; therefore the underlying cause of the discomfort is peptide sensitivity. ProHydrolase® breaks down large peptides reducing the potential for discomfort that often comes from consuming whey protein.
Betaine is a unique molecule has two important functions and associated health benefits in the human body. As a methyl donor, it is part of several essential metabolic reactions and contributes to the synthesis of proteins for muscle strength, power, and endurance.
As an osmolyte, betaine protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from common stressors (e.g., low water, high salinity or extreme temperature).
7 HUMAN STUDIES DEMONSTRATE IMPROVEMENT IN SPORTS PERFORMANCE
BetaPower® has been shown in a number of clinical trials to improve athletic performance, especially strength and power.
NOT ALL BETAINE IS CREATED EQUAL
Many companies claim the amazing benefits of betaine from the human studies that were conducted using natural BetaPower®, yet in their product they use generic, synthetic material.
This practice is deceiving and unethical. It’s what we at Kaged Muscle® call using “borrowed science” to dupe you, the customer, into thinking their product is the real deal, when in fact it is an unproven copycat with no direct research or safety data.
Betaine available in the market can be of natural or synthetic origin and this is not always clear from the product labels. The published athletic performance and safety studies have been conducted using BetaPower® betaine. Make sure your product contains the guaranteed high quality and purity of BetaPower®.
The real deal BetaPower® used in seven human studies is 99%+ pure and derived from the molasses of sugar beets.
Patented Creatine HCl
Though not considered an "essential" amino acid, it is without question a "conditional" amino acid.
This amino acid provides a multitude of functions that benefit bodybuilders and athletes. Kaged Muscle's Glutamine is manufactured using a patented fermentation process.
Why RE-KAGED® can never be duplicated.

best protein out there
Good...would like to use Amazons shipping with your promo codes. Not sure if thats possible.
I’ve been using KM supps for about 2 years now, and I absolutely love them. I absolutely appreciate the clean ingredients, and the tests KM does on all of their products. Rekaged is a great post workout shake.
Hey Kjirstin, thank you for this amazing review! We appreciate you recognizing our clean ingredients, as we do make it a point to only use the purest and potent ingredients. Thank you for showing your support!
Great flavor and leaves you and your body satisfied!!
Hey Aaron! Thanks so much for this great review. We're thrilled you love the flavor, our formulators worked hard to really lock it down. Thanks for taking the time to recognize us for this!
I love Rekaged! It’s not heavy like some post workout drinks which makes it easier to consume immediately following a tough workout. I will use this for many years to come
Wendy, thanks for this great review! We're glad you're enjoying our products and hope you continue to do so. Thanks for your support and for being a part of Team Kaged Muscle! Best, Jose
