The Important Stuff.

  • If you’re lifting heavy and often and you want your muscles to grow to their maximum potential, you need to protect them from catabolic forces whenever possible. That means preventing muscle breakdown! The most basic, unavoidable reality when it comes to muscle growth is that you must ensure that more amino acids are entering the muscle tissue throughout the day than are leaving it.

    To achieve this delicate but crucial balance, you’ve got to be regularly making the most important amino acids available to your muscles. Defend has been formulated with all of the most anabolic and anti-catabolic amino acids required by the human body in an unbelievable tasting powdered drink mix, so you’ll never be caught short when it comes to supplying your muscles with the most potent building blocks required for their growth and repair! Defend is designed to be used throughout the day, either with meals to enhance the amino acid profile of your diet or between meals as an anti-catabolic. It also makes a perfect Intra-Workout or Post-Workout supplement (along with your protein shake) as a broader spectrum alternative to BCAAs.

    Remember, Defend is designed for athletes and military personnel who want to avoid muscle breakdown and maximise their exercise recovery, strength and lean muscle mass. It is an advanced, new, full-spectrum amino acid product, which contains every amino acid required to build and repair muscle. Also, virtually all of the amino acids found in Defend are delivered in both the peptide-bonded and free forms, for a broader range of absorption and kinetics. Finally, Defend is formulated with key nutrients to enhance absorption, uptake and retention of its vital amino acid payload.

    Key points:

    • Fermented BCAAs – no duck feathers or human hair (commonly used to source BCAAs in other products)
    • Added Glutamine, Powdered Coconut Water and Electrolytes
    • Informed sport – certified banned substance free
    • Patented ingredients – Pepform® Leucine and Glutamine Peptides (isolated from whey proteins, highly bio-available forms)
    • Micronized amino acids – improved mix-ability and delivery
    • New Flavour Technology – 3 dramatically improved flavours
    • Grenade Funnel still included in every tub!
    • Stackable with any of the Grenade Essentials range to tailor to your own goals
    • GMO Free  
  • Take 2 level scoops of Defend powder with approx. 500mL -1000mL water (adjust according to taste preference) of water during (Intra-Workout), or after high intensity exercise. Alternatively, Defend can be added to a water bottle and consumed throughout the day.

    What are Amino Acids?

    A large proportion of our body consists of proteins, the building blocks of which are amino acids. Muscles, bones and skin in particular include large amounts of protein. Amino acids are therefore essential for growth and the constant repair of these tissues. When exercising your body requires a higher intake of amino acids to replenish depleted levels and accelerate optimal growth and repair. Through consuming Defend, you can be sure that your intake of amino acids is optimised. Why take Defend compared with other Amino Acid products? Defend has been formulated with all of the most anabolic and anti-catabolic amino acids required by the human body. Several key, powerful and cutting-edge ingredients have been added to Defend, including:
    • High-Dosage Leucine 
    • Astragin 
    • L-Citrulline DL-Malate 
    • Alpha Lipoic Acid 
    • Glutamine Peptides

    Together, this powerful formulation gives the complete amino acid supplement, covering all bases. Meaning, that as a hard training individual, this supplement is simply a must have. We should also add that it tastes amazing.
