Key Benefits

Defend® is an advanced 2:1:1 ratio BCAA supplement containing micronized, PepForm®, free form amino acids, hydrating nutrients, electrolytes and ZERO sugar.

No leading competitor product contains more Leucine or BCAAs than Defend®, the only one that does contains the same amount, but doesn’t include Leucine peptides or coconut water…

Defend Comparison Chart

*Brand 1 uses a mixture of peptide bonded amino acids with an undisclosed amount of leucine and BCAAs but which also contains other amino acids, including non-essential amino acids (which do not increase protein synthesis beyond that of giving essential amino acids).

Grenade Defend® BCAA utilises micronized amino acids fermented from natural sources to ensure quality, purity and mix-ability; giving you confidence in every serving. Amino acids have commonly been obtained from animal sources, including hydrolysis of duck feathers and human hair. To obtain amino acids by this manner relies on harsh conditions and a high acidity hydrolysis process, not to mention the fact the raw material can be human hair!

FAQs

What is the best way to consume Defend ® on training days?

ADVANCED USER STACK

For maximum results, Grenade® Defend® BCAA can be stacked with Grenade® .50 Caliber® pre-workout. Take 1 serving of .50 Caliber® approximately 30 minutes prior to working out and 1 serving of Defend® BCAA intra-workout. On non-training days, mix Defend with water and sip thought the day as an alternative to water. Defend® can be stacked with any products from the Grenade® range to help maximize results.

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.

  1. Defend BCAA's

    by

    These amino's are probably the best-tasting/most effective aminos I have ever used. I have tried many different kinds of aminos before and they always gave me headaches/made me feel like crap during my workout. I got a sample of these from Amazon and loved it so I decided to buy a tub. I now purchase 1 tub every 2 months and I love this product. Definitely keeps you hydrated during your workout and helps post-workout recovery. Besides the slightly steep price, this product is absolutely amazing.

    I ordered the Green apple got the other flavors as samples and they are pretty damn good. Work well for me for a intra, tastes great too. Strawberry/mango was an interesting flavor. Not all that for me but not bad either. Just an interesting mixture. Fairly smooth to drink. Blue Candy and Green Apple are where it's at in my opinion. Keeps me fueled and ready for every exercise.....Gotta love it man.

  4. Another Great Supplement for My Arsenal

    by

    Another winner from Grenade! I tried both flavors and found them to be sweet, but not too sweet. Definitely flavorful. Perfect for about 1300 when I'm starting to lose steam! I haven't used it as an intra-workout yet, but I do plan on it once my new shipment comes in. Mixibility was great, I just poured it into my CamelBack and it mixed great even with no blender ball. I'm so pumped to have this in my arsenal!

    Thanks guys, well done!
