KEY FACTS:

  • two premium protein sources - whey isolate and micellar casein
  • no amino spiking - full amino profile declared on supplement facts panel

WHY CHOOSE HYDRA 6?

Hydra 6® Protein combines 12 grams of fast acting Whey Protein Isolate (with no inferior whey concentrates) and 12 grams of slower release Micellar Casein (with no inferior calcium caseinates) supplying 24 grams of complete protein.*

HYDRA 6 PROTEIN 50/50 BLEND

WHY IS 50/50 THE PERFECT RATIO?

This superior combination of Whey Protein Isolate and Micellar Casein delivers better muscle growth and recovery due to the different digestion and absorption rates of these two different types of proteins.*

Whey Protein Isolate is digested and absorbed rapidly, meaning it delivers amino acids to the muscles very quickly (within 60-90 minutes). This in turn spikes muscle protein synthesis and triggers optimal Leucine concentration (3.8g), known as the ‘Anabolic Trigger’. The Whey Isolate is absorbed so quickly that it is rapidly utilized and protein synthesis drops sharply.*

Micellar Casein now plays its part. It is digested and absorbed at a slower and steadier rate, continuing to supply the muscles long after the amino acids from the isolate have been absorbed. This essentially prolongs the anabolic response (The Anabolic Window) initiated by the Whey Protein Isolate supporting greater recovery and optimizing muscle growth.*

We should also mention - it tastes AWESOME!

I actually ordered this thinking it was 100% whey and not a blend, but I'm starting to like that style of protein. Without personally lab testing every protein powder, we generally assume they all have a degree of efficacy that's relatively consistent i.e. I'm assuming the actual "quality" of protein is as good other options. What I really came here for, is the taste! After being let down badly by Cellucor and their chalky, old-milk-smelling, terrible taste this was a complete 180! I'll actually just get right to my point: MOTHER OF GOD THIS IS THE BEST TASTING PROTEIN POWDER I'VE EVER HAD!!!!!! I've been an Optimum Gold standard user for the longest time and always used it as a benchmark to gauge others, and this Hydra blew it out of the water! It blends great, but when there are still clumps, it's still somehow smooth as opposed to the dry chalky clump that breaks open and leaves dry powder in your mouth. I'm also pretty sure there are tiny bits of strawberry or something in it. Glass of Ice Cold milk, scoop and a half of this, and it's straight up like drinking a strawberry malt! As I mentioned, I don't have to resources to test the overall "quality" and efficacy of this powder, but I can say that I'm absolutely loving everything about it. So. ****. Good!

I tried this protein once then I changed it just to try another brand but I ended up returning to Hydra 6 mainly because the results were better with this one than with the other brand. I think that Hydra 6 really works on building muscle and its amazing taste makes drinking a protein shake a very pleasant proceeding. The only thing that I will miss is 2lb bag is not available any more.

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!

This is as solid as you can buy for a protein shake. If you lift you NEED both Whey and Casein protein in your diet and this has 12g of each. Whey is fast acting and needed right after a lift and Casein slowly acts and is needed through out the day (since I lift in the morning), and this has both - 50/50. Most protein blends do not tell you have much of each type of protein is in it and since Isolate and Casein are more expensive for companies there is really no telling how much is in protein unless it is listed like Grenade does. This has Whey Isolate which, in my opinion, is the best Whey you can buy and I NEVER buy a protein that has Whey Concentrate, you might as well drink milk. I have definitely seen great, lean results from this and have been constantly buying for almost over a year now. As for taste, I leave it for last because unlike most losers that buy supplements, I do not base what I buy off of taste, I buy it off of results. But anyway, the taste is fine. I mix it with water and drink it in 10 seconds. If you want to be a diva, mix it with milk and I bet it will taste even better.
