Smartfish Recharge High Protein improves muscle recovery and explosive power in professional rugby players
Newly published double-blind study
The Newly published double-blind study shows that Smartfish Recharge High Protein improves muscle recovery and explosive power in professional rugby players.
European Journal of Sports Science recently published a study on Smartfish sports product Recharge High Protein. The study was conducted on 20 professional Rugby players, randomized to receive either Recharge High Protein or a protein-based placebo twice daily for 5 weeks. The effect of the product was measured by muscle soreness, countermovement jump (CMJ) and mental well-being, using a Likert scale on muscle soreness and a questionnaire about fatigue, sleep, stress and mood. CMJ tests were also performed 1-2 times per week. After 5 weeks, a positive effect of Recharge High Protein on muscle soreness (Figure 1), CMJ performance (Figure 2) and fatigue were observed compared to day 0. The results show that Recharge High Protein can reduce muscle soreness and maintain muscle function and explosive power after hard exercise and confirms earlier results from a football study at University of Stirling.
