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.

I don't know what you guys did but great move on the new taste. The orange cream is freakin' amazing now!
The protein does not cause an insulin spike with me and does not leave me bloated. A good complement to a balanced diet for gains.
enjoyed the taste of this product, surprisingly good iced lemon cake.
Love it !!! It really helps with recovery just don’t care for the taste
Paired it with the Kaged Pre-Workout and loving it. Orange flavor tastes awesome! Overall using both products I have noticed significant recovery and CNS improvements I think likely due to the improved recovery. I’ve been a natural lifter going on 20 years and have used most supplements under the sun. The pre workout doesn’t give you a crazy energy kick but a sustained and more wholesome kick. I think the large serving size paired with the aminos is something I’ve been lacking pre workout and notice significant strength improvements that last longer into my workouts. Again, these are supplements and should be used in conjunction with a wholesome diet based on your fitness needs. Overall a 10/10 for me and albeit a bit more expensive than some other market offerings, it’s not outrageous and sometimes you actually do get what you pay for. Will be using these for the foreseeable future on training days.
The new Lemon Ice Cake flavor is amazing
Best protein blend on the market, taste, consistency, texture. All natural no other competitor makes anything that touches this. Customer for life
Iced Lemon Cake is my new favorite re-kaged flavor. I highly recommend this new flavor. It's very refreshing after a good workout.
Usually pickup my Re-Kaged at the local GNC or Suppz. Ordered from Kaged Muscle because I wanted to try the new Iced Lemon Cake. Really like the new flavor! Love that you offer different flavors in your post workout protein! It's a refreshing change from chocolate or vanilla!
As always, Kaged Muscle delivers. The flavor is awesome. It mixes great. It helps keep my body anabolic. Couldn't ask for a better protein. Full of high-quality, productive ingredients.
Great taste and mixes well!
Awesome! Will never start using another brand again
The new flavor is amazing. This protein powder mixes well and tastes great!
I’ve loved it for 5 yrs
Perfect. Happy I switched to Rekaged
