Key Benefits

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. 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.

Research

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 twice as long but has been shown to be superior for ensuring that muscle growth activity exceeds 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 shown over and over again to be anti-catabolic (so it prevents muscle breakdown in addition to causing 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]*.

Having established 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 between 12 - 12.5 grams of Protein from premium Whey Protein Isolate (with no inferior concentrates) and 12 - 12.5 grams of protein from low-heat, ultrafiltered, native Micellar Casein (no inferior caseinates) for a total of 24 - 25 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 realise their full potential anyhow!

  1. Amazing

    by

    An amazing product. Been using this for well over a year now. My favourite protein on the market. I like to go for a fast and slow acting protein mix. GRENADE serves us a transparent protein product containing high quality fast acting whey isolate and slow acting micellar casein. The two best protein sources of their kind. Mixes great with water or milk. Highly recommend this.

  12. My essential supplement

    by

    I've tried a few proteins for post workout and have been left feeling pretty "meh" about them. I thought Hydra 6 would be the same. WRONG! Hydra 6 is great tasting, and really does reenergise and boost post gym. I can honestly say I know when I've had it. My muscles don't ache and I have greatly reduced fatigue. Ready to go again quickly. I have switched back to my old protein, for a couple of days for comparison, and I noticed the difference immediately.
    The only downside (of the strawberry siege) is it can be slightly granular in texture. No real bother.

    All in all a great product. Mixed in the Grenade shaker it looks awesome too!

    This is now one of my essentials.
    Reason being you have the two way skip of 50% Casien & 50% Isolate.

    Flavors are outstanding on all,mix ability effortless & a pleasure to drink.
    Basically your drip feeding your muscle cells all day with the 50/50 split-ideal.
    One shake post workout a must and another during day to keep topped up for 24hours.

    Grabbed a few samples from the Nutricentre on this, and thought would see what all the 50:50 fuss is about, taste and mixability is great, doesn't leave any froth. will definetly making this one of my protein supplements. Even the Marvel Avengers would have a hard time saying "Hail Hydra" if they had this after every mission!

    by

    I'm really getting into using Grenade's products now as the quality is just hands down better than the rest. Ration packs are spot on, Flapjacks and Carb Killa bars taste insane, the fat burners work a treat and now Hydra6 50/50 blend.
    Well I've tried all flavours of Hydra6, they all mix well with whatever you throw at them, oats in the morning, eggs for pancakes or straight up out of the shaker post workout... I love this stuff and won't be using any other brand, i'm hooked! Whatever flavour you pick you won't be disappointed. Keep it up team Grenade!

  23. You get what you pay for!*

    by

    YES this is quite expensive compared to normal proteins on the market, such as PHD Pharma whey. But this isn't a normal protein, If like me, you have both a casein and whey concentrate/isolate at home, this covers both bases, and for a change for an Isolate and casein products, it tastes fantastic. If you are serious about your training, you will know that you need a constant feed of amino acids, only blended products like this can do it. Plus you get the added benefit of the quick acting Isolate, straight after training. This is much better than all those cheap all in ones on the market, as this doesn't have other unnecessary extras such as sugary carbs and low doses of creatine. I would highly recommend this to anyone, and it mixes fantastic, especially when I add it to my porridge in the morning. Cookie and chocolate are my favourite. If your not sure due to cost, then try the smaller tub, I can guarantee that once you try it, you wont go back to your old protein.
