FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Recovery after exercise is essential to refuel the body and repair damage to the muscle, as muscle strength comes from stressing then healing the tissue. Missing this step leads to tissue breakdown instead of building.
After a race or exercise, it’s best to replenish proteins, BCAAs, glycogen and electrolytes within 30-60min and provide your muscles with the necessary nutrients to repair damage to the muscle.

Cricket protein (for Chocolate) and isolated soy protein (for Vanilla).
Cricket protein is a superfood that contains all essential amino acids, is rich in vitamins B12 (42% of your daily needs), rich in iron (2.2 mg), rich in calcium (50 mg) and rich in potassium (300 mg).
Unlike most plant proteins, soy protein is a complete protein. That means it has a higher BCAAs content and it contains all the amino acids that our body needs for proper functioning.
That makes it the best plant protein choice for stimulating muscle protein synthesis, and is a great choice for vegan runners.
We chose these two protein because they are sustainable. Producing crickets requires less resources than dairy protein (2,000x less water, 100x less green house gases, 12x less feed), not to mention it creates less waste.
Production of soy protein uses less water than similar processes with animal sources. Soy uses 2,500 gallons of water per ton of protein produced. This is dramatically lower than beef (nearly 21,000 gallons) and also lower than protein produced from eggs, chickens, and pork.
Anyone that wants to take care of their muscles and optimize their recovery. Ideally, no one wants to lose muscle, this is one way to help.
Science suggests taking in a protein supplement 30-60 minutes post workout to help with the recovery process and replenish muscle protein that was depleted during the workout.
Näak means Nutrition for Adventurous Athletes who run Kilometers.
