Product Overview

HELPS PREVENT MUSCLE BREAKDOWN*
GREATER GAINS IN LEAN MUSCLE*
UNPRECEDENTED TASTE

The First 50/50 Slow/Fast Protein Blend.

Hydra 6™ has been formulated with the ultimate form of whey protein - Whey Protein Isolate - and the ultimate form of casein - Ultrafiltered Micellar Casein - in the perfect “50/50” ratio, which research suggests to be superior to taking either whey protein or casein on their own*. Hydra 6™ offers the versatility and convenience of not having to buy two separate proteins for different times of the day and is designed to feed your muscles with the highest quality protein available.

FACT:Hard training individuals need “fast acting” whey protein isolate in the morning and pre / post workout and “slow release” casein protein before bedtime and at other times when protein won’t be consumed for several hours.

DECLARE WAR!


When it comes to whey protein, it’s simple, science tells us very clearly that the higher the peak in our blood essential amino acid levels, the greater the signal to the muscles to start the process of protein synthesis (muscle building) [1]*. And no protein can crank up essential amino acid levels to a higher peak than whey protein isolate [2]*. But whey protein may not be enough on its own. Several studies suggest that whey stops delivering amino acids after about 3 1/2 hours, whereas the other major milk protein, casein, not only delivers its amino acids for longer but has been suggested to be superior for supporting muscle growth and reducing muscular breakdown[2] *. So casein’s ability to act like a “drip-feed” and constantly deliver amino acids to the blood over at least seven hours has been suggested over and over again to be anti-catabolic (so it prevents muscle breakdown in addition to supporting growth)*. Clearly, casein has advantages that whey protein alone cannot match [2 ].


Other studies also suggest that combination proteins which included whey and casein have a more potent muscle-building effect in the four hours after a weight-training session as compared to whey protein alone [3] *. Convinced that a perfect 50 /50 combination of whey protein and casein is ideal for muscle growth, the Grenade® research team had one more major goal - combine the ultimate source of whey protein with the ultimate source of casein... the result is Hydra 6™, one of the highest-quality protein combinations ever seen in the world of sports supplementation.*

Each serving of Hydra 6™ contains 12 grams of protein from premium whey protein isolate (with no inferior concentrates) and 12 grams of protein from low-heat, ultrafiltered, native micellar casein (no inferior caseinates) for a total of 24 grams of protein per serving AND you can take it before training, after training, before bed or ANY other time you want quality protein - no more messing around having to buy two separate proteins, which are of inferior quality and actually need to be mixed to realize their full potential anyhow!

This protein tastes great and mixes extremely well. I've used carnivore beef protein, muscletech beef protein, ON Whey, ON Casein, etc, and this one tastes the best. It has no bad lingering after taste at all. You can easily mix 2 scoops in just 8 ounces of milk or water and it doesnt clump nor is it super thick. Highly recommend!

This is hands down the greatest tasting protein ive ever tried. The mix of casein vs whey is perfect for long shifts at work, before bed, or basically anytime. This mixes so good with skim milk its a crime. But after a workout when you need some simple carbs, mixed with juice this is straight up phenomenal. Im so glad i gave this a chance. There are many good whey proteins, but the usually taste like Gandhi's flip flop. I bought the stack justb l to get the Thermo Detonator fat burners. Best choice ever. Kudos!

Excellent protein powder, and a great less-expensive alternative to ProJym (minus the egg protein). The blend of whey and casein means you get both the fast- and slow-absorbing protein you need, and that you can even take it before bed without having to purchase a separate casein. The profile itself is simple and clean without any spiking or fillers, and the 2 flavours I've tried so far are both excellent (strawberry being one of the best flavours of any protein I've ever tried). Looking forward to trying the chocolate next. The powder itself blends easily and smoothly, becomes thicker due to the added dairy creamer, and fills you up without bloating. My new favourite supplement!
