There’s absolutely nothing else like it on the sports supplement market. NOTHING!
Around 7 years ago, when Kris Gethin began testing other brands for safety, purity, and performance, it quickly dawned on him that he would have to mix his own single fill ingredients in the doses he knew were effective to gain better performance and results that would only benefit his health. Years later, Kaged Muscle is lucky enough to have developed patented and fully tested ingredients in one supplement to create the most unbelievable Pre-Workout that’s created some of the most unbelievable workouts.
Why Pre-Kaged is sending shock waves through the bodybuilding community…
When you take Pre-Kaged something happens. You scoop…add water… shake or stir…drink…then 15 – 20 minutes later…IT happens.
It will energize your brain and shock your muscles into anabolic overdrive to help you crush personal records and workout plateaus.
We have always considered the mind-to-muscle connection the secret weapon. When you can tap into adrenaline, focus, energy, and positive aggression, you’re on the path to success. When you couple this with prolonged, physical intensity, you’re able to achieve goals and destroy personal records.
Real Science VS. Borrowed Science
Kaged Muscle lives by this philosophy: TEST, DON’T GUESS. Their products are backed by proven clinical studies, NOT reinterpreted science applied to generic ingredients.
Generic is just what it sounds like – an inferior replica that claims to be the same, but has no evidence that the product works or delivers results.
Kaged Muscle has partnered with reputable and innovative ingredient manufacturers such as BetaPower, Carnosyn, Prohydrolase, SPECTRA and PurCaf, that spend millions of dollars on research, testing, and safety to maximize your results in the gym.
It is our goal to give you the absolute best products, truly backed by science. We have tested every one of these products in the lab and the gym. YOUR BODY DESERVES THE BEST.
Your bodybuilding efforts are too important to risk on unproven, generic, mystery ingredients, or through science that hasn’t been validated. Kaged Muscle contains only the highest-quality ingredients that are safe and backed by real science.
At Kaged Muscle, shortcuts are not taken. They’re never even considered. When it comes to quality, there are no shortcuts. And when it comes to your health, there shouldn’t be.
Why does PRE-KAGED have 274 mg of caffeine and not 300 mg or 350 mg like some of the competitors’ products?
Through vigorous R&D testing, the Kaged Muscle scientists discovered that when caffeine exceeds 275 mg, it may cause anxiety and can diminish the effect of nitric oxide production. Finding the perfect balance PurCaf Caffeine in Kaged Muscle provides an excellent mixture of energy and focus while NOT diminishing the effects of your pump.
Our goal was to formulate the BEST performing Pre-Workout on the market, not give you another stimulant cocktail that keeps you counting sheep while your heartbeat is racing late into the night.
PRE-KAGED Neuro-Focus Matrix consists of PurCaf Organic Caffeine, two forms of L-Tyrosine, and Taurine along with B-Vitamins for further mood enhancement. It keeps you focused and in the game.
PRE-KAGED gets you in the zone, and then IN-KAGED keeps you in the ZONE. They are your two training partners that won’t let you down.
The caffeine and key nitric oxide ingredient are timed perfectly between PRE-KAGED and IN-KAGED for maximum effect without losing performance.
Take PRE-KAGED 30 minutes prior to working out and start sipping IN-KAGED 40-45 minutes after consuming PRE-KAGED.
KEY INGREDIENTS IN PRE-KAGED
Exclusive MICROPURE BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio to help fuel skeletal muscles. MICROPURE BCAAs are manufactured by vegetable fermentation and are micro-encapsulated by a patented technology that maximizes absorption and solubility.
Exclusive to KAGED MUSCLE, MICROPURE Leucine is fermented and ultra-soluble for maximum absorption.
Leucine works as a trigger, metabolized directly in muscle tissue to encourage a muscle building stimulus. Leucine can be used as an energy source for muscles, but more importantly, it slows the rate of protein breakdown in skeletal muscle tissue. Leucine has also been shown to decrease delayed onset muscle soreness following intense exercise.

SET YOUR METABOLISM ON FIRE
QUERCETIN is a type of phytonutrient called a flavonoid. It is found in fruits and vegetables – particularly citrus fruits, apples, onions, fava beans, teas, red wines, and uncaria leaves.
Quercetin, like all flavonoids, has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants scavenge damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Free radicals damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and play a role in many health conditions. Through their antioxidant properties, flavonoids like quercetin can help to neutralize free radicals.
SPECTRA is a new dawn in our understanding of how fruits, vegetables, and herbs positively interact and influence physiological functions in the human body.

THE DIFFERENCE IS CLEAR
What really sets PRE-KAGED apart from the competition is the attention to detail that goes into sourcing the world’s purest ingredients.
- Patented Ingredients Exclusive to Kaged Muscle
- Exclusive Natural Flavor Technology
- Proprietary Manufacturing Process
After years of research and development, Kaged Muscle is proud to share with you the next level in Micellar Casein supplements.
KAGED MUSCLE KASEIN is an ultra-premium cold-processed Micellar Casein Isolate that is carefully manufactured from an innovative micro-filtration process. This filtration method preserves the structural integrity of the protein ensuring that the finished product maintains its natural micellar structure as it is found in milk.
Casein proteins are pH sensitive causing them to thicken in the acidic environment of the stomach. The proteins’ ability to form a gel in the stomach slows down the digestion rate allowing for a sustained release of amino acids. This makes casein ideal for nighttime or prolonged periods throughout the day without protein.
FEED YOUR MUSCLES WHILE YOU SLEEP
KAGED MUSCLE KASEIN is a game-changing anti-catabolic protein that you can’t live without if you are serious about adding size and strength. During the night your body goes the longest period of time without food. Fasting for 6-8 hours, the body starts going into a catabolic state as it has gone a long duration of time without any nutrients. KASEIN slowly and continuously feeds your muscles a steady supply of muscle-building essential amino acids for several hours. This plays an important part in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance and long-term anabolic state by preventing muscle protein breakdown.* The effects of this slow amino acid release have been investigated in a number of studies and have been shown to be very effective at promoting an anti-catabolic environment for muscle growth.

SAY GOOD-BYE TO OLD SCHOOL GRITTY & SANDY TEXTURED CASEIN PROTEIN POWDERS
Not only did my KAGED MUSCLE R&D team build the highest quality Micellar Casein, they took it to the next level by nailing amazing milkshake-like flavors for both our naturally flavored and naturally colored vanilla and chocolate options. These flavors are like nothing else you have ever tried! Our R&D team spent over 6 months just working on the flavor systems alone. There’s no reason why you cannot get the results you crave while improving your health and enjoying the taste of your supplements at the same time.
WHY KAGED MUSCLE KASEIN VS. OTHER CASEIN SUPPLEMENTS?
The answer is simple–all our ingredients meet MICROPURE standards which means they are third-party tested for purity and potency. In return for a premium price, KAGED MUSCLE’s manufacturers commit to strict ethical and environmental standards, ensuring our ingredients are manufactured with care. MICROPURE Micellar Casein Isolate is the first of a new generation of dairy ingredients which combine superior nutrition and enhanced functionality. The starting point for this ultra-premium slow-release protein is the clean raw milk source used. It is then gently processed by an innovative low-temperature ceramic micro-filtration method that preserves the natural micellar structure.

NOT ALL CASEIN IS THE SAME
The type used in the French study was Micellar Casein, which is isolated from milk by filtration, rather than by use of acid or heat. The filtration method Kaged Muscle uses preserves the structural integrity of the protein, unlike what occurs in other processing methods that many others use. When heat or acid is used to separate casein out of milk, the micelle’s structures are altered, resulting in a loss of biological activity and digestibility.
HOW DOES MICELLAR CASEIN DIFFER FROM CALCIUM OR SODIUM CASEINATE?
Calcium Caseinate is casein protein which has been separated from skimmed milk with the use of an acid. This means the final protein is not in its natural Micellar structure; the protein is effectively denatured.
After the casein has been precipitated by acid, the mixture is heated again. This causes the protein to further thermolyze and degrade into smaller components, which agglomerate together to form clumps of curd. The curd is then dewatered by high-sheer centrifuging. At this point, the casein has been treated with acid and heat, which literally destroy the integrity of the protein. So, what do you end up paying for? Nothing! You are simply being ripped off. Kaged won’t allow that….for us or for you.
Raw milk casein is made out of a complex group of protein clusters called micelles, which are bound with calcium, phosphate, and citrate ions and exist at a neutral pH of approximately 6.6, roughly the same as your body’s pH. Native Micellar Casein complements your body’s acid-base balance and will not cause an acidic effect. That’s unlike many top brands’ caseins, which are highly acidifying and need to be chemically alkalized to be edible.
How can you tell which kind of casein you are taking? In the nutrition panel the first ingredient listed should be Micellar Casein. If the brand you are taking is not Micellar Casein, then it’s time for a trade-in.
QUESTIONS I GET ASKED FREQUENTLY
Why didn’t you include a digestive enzyme in KASEIN?
Whey protein, which is FAST in digestion requires a digestive enzyme in order to break it down quickly to be fully utilized, especially post workout….as we do in RE-KAGED. KAGED MUSCLE’s Premium Micellar Casein Isolate, on the other hand, has a VERY SLOW digestion rate which does not require a digestive enzyme to help rapidly digest/break it down into a usable form of amino acids. Instead, Micellar Casein is slowly digested over a 5-7-hour period, supplying a steady supply of muscle-building amino acids. Several leading brands’ casein proteins use a digestive enzyme to help combat their higher lactose levels due to using a lower-quality protein source. Casein products containing higher amounts of lactose can cause gastric distress to those that are lactose sensitive. You won’t have to worry about this with our KASEIN as it has less than 1 g of lactose per serving, making it ideal for those who are sensitive to lactose.
Why did you include coconut oil in KASEIN?
Coconut oil is essential to help slow the casein breakdown. The coconut oil supplies a sustained release source of healthy fats. Coconut oil’s saturated fat is made up mostly of medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs.
Which protein source is better, Whey or Micellar Casein?
Protein powders, like all supplements, are tools that help you accomplish your fitness goals. Using the RIGHT tools at the RIGHT times makes a BIG difference.
Example: Using a pair of pliers to remove a screw versus using a screwdriver—one is more efficient at getting the job done, however, both will work. Use RE-KAGED post workout or at breakfast, and then use the Micellar KASEIN before bed.
Below are a few tips on how I get the best out of both my RE-KAGED and KASEIN protein powders:
During the day and post workout, use a fast-acting whey protein isolate like KAGED MUSCLE’s RE-KAGED.
At night or during the day when you will not be eating a protein source for 4+ hours, use a premium slow-release Micellar Casein such as KAGED KASEIN.
The reasons: During the day and after exercise your muscles need fast-digesting protein such as whey to counteract the catabolic effect of physical exercise and help with recovery and muscle growth.
However, at night, KASEIN is KING and has the anabolic advantage over longer periods of time due its ability to induce a slow and steady release of amino acids to your muscles for several hours, keeping your muscles fed while you sleep.
RE-KAGED is a game-changing anabolic protein that you can’t live without if you are serious about adding size and strength. Supercharge your muscles with our lightning fast delivery of BCAAs, EAAs, CAAs, and NAAs from Non-GMO Whey Protein Isolate for maximum post-workout recovery support.
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 maximum 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 vs. 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.

FORMULATING THE UNTHINKABLE
If you are looking for another product to compare RE-KAGED to, you are wasting your time! Nothing on the market even comes close or has similar ingredients. Many of the ingredients in RE-KAGED are unique and exclusive to KAGED MUSCLE, which means you will only get them from KAGED MUSCLE.
3 problems with most post-workout products on the markeT
- Most brands are serving you a glass that is only 30% full by offering you a BCAA only product at a critical time when your body needs a full spectrum Amino Acid Profile that has all nine essential amino acids in order to maximize muscle building.
- New research on individuals who train with weights shows that during a 1.5 – 2 hour workout the human body does not burn enough glycogen to justify supplementing with fast-acting carbs post workout for the majority of us.
- They are loaded with artificial flavors, colors, and low-quality GMO ingredients
LET’S TALK LOGIC FOR A SECOND
You train to failure and eat clean all day – why then drink a “health shake” loaded with:
- ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS
- SOY LECITHIN
- COOKIE PIECES
- ARTIFICIAL COLORS (Red 40, Yellow 6)
- HIGH-FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP
- UNPROVEN GENERIC INGREDIENTS?
LET’S TALK REAL, MODERN DAY SCIENCE
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.
WHY RE-KAGED VS. OTHER POST-WORKOUT PRODUCTS?
The answer is simple – all our ingredients are third-party tested for purity and potency! In return for a premium price, KAGED MUSCLE’s manufacturers commit to strict ethical and environmental standards, ensuring our ingredients are manufactured with care.
KEY INGREDIENTS IN RE-KAGED
WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE IS COMPARED TO GOLD BY MANY BODYBUILDERS & ATHLETES
MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) is the first of a new generation of dairy ingredients which combine superior nutrition, enhanced functionality, and complete solubility.
- A soluble, easy-to-digest whey protein that is quickly absorbed into the body to start rebuilding and repairing lean muscle tissue.
- High-quality, complete protein that delivers all 9 essential amino acids needed by the human body to build muscle.
- Rich in the Branched Chain Amino Acids – highest leucine content of any known protein.
- Non-GMO Instantized with Sunflower Lecithin for improved dispersibility.
QUALITY & PURITY
We guarantee that RE-KAGED contains 100% premium Whey Protein Isolate and does not contain any amino spiking ingredients or mid-grade whey protein concentrate.
Many companies combine Whey Isolate and Concentrate which is not optimal for muscle building but helps the companies save costs.
PROHYDROLASE REPRESENTS A BREAKTHROUGH IN DIGESTIVE ENZYME SCIENCE.
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.
DECREASED STOMACH DISCOMFORT AN ADDED BENEFIT
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 isolates.
BETAPOWER BETAINE IS A NATURAL NUTRIENT FOR ATHLETIC STRENGTH AND PERFORMANCE.
This 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 and power.
As an osmolyte, betaine protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress (e.g., low water, high salinity or extreme temperature).
7 HUMAN STUDIES DEMONSTRATE IMPROVEMENT IN SPORTS PERFORMANCE THE BENEFITS
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 Supplements 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 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 natural betaine. Make sure your product contains the guaranteed high quality and purity of BetaPower.
The REAL DEAL BetaPower used in 7 Human Studies is 99%+ pure and derived from the molasses of sugar beets.
PATENTED CREATINE HCL
It is the original creatine hydrochloride (HCl). Patented Creatine HCl eliminates the need for a loading phase or cycling off.
QUALITY & PURITY
Patented Creatine HCl contains no sugar, no fillers, no binders, and no buffering agents. Patented Creatine HCl is GLUTEN FREE and has NON-MEAT components. Patented Creatine HCl complies with strict cGMP standards.*
It is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. 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 and is 100% pure.
