Key Benefits

Hydra 6® has been formulated with you in mind, by combining Whey Protein Isolate and 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 with “slow release” Casein Protein before bedtime and at other times when Protein needs to be absorbed over 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 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]*. 

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, native micellar casein for a total of 24 - 25 grams of protein per serving. This protein combination can be taken prior to training, after training, before bed or ANY other time your body needs high 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 nonetheless!

FAQS - HYDRA 6®

Can I take Hydra 6® alongside other Grenade® supplements?

Yes. Hydra 6® can be stacked with any product from the Grenade® range to help maximize results.

When can I take Hydra 6®?

Due to the unique 50/50 blend of premium Whey Protein Isolate and low-heat, ultra filtered, native Micellar Casein, Hydra 6® can be consumed across a number of scenarios. These include, but are not limited to: Pre-Workout, Post-Workout, bedtime and in between meals.

Why does Hydra 6® contain premium Whey Isolate and Micellar Casein?

Studies show that this combination of protein sources may have the most potent muscle-building effect compared with Whey Protein alone. Furthermore, hard training individuals may benefit from “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. By combining the two sources in one protein it saves you having to buy a second tub of protein.

What is the difference between whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate?

Typically whey protein concentrates are 80% protein and Whey Protein isolates are 90% protein. As well as this, because of the extra micro-filtration process more fat and carbohydrates are removed. Therefore, the addition of isolates in Hydra 6 reduces the overall fat and carbohydrate content and provides a higher quality Protein, which is easy to digest.

What are the benefits of taking Hydra 6®?

There are a huge range of benefits from supplementing with Hydra 6®, such as: maintaining a healthy weight, controlling hunger, getting lean, boosting recovery and diminishing muscle breakdown.

I play competitive sports, can I use Grenade® Hydra 6® if I am going to be drug tested?

Hydra 6® is a natural food supplement. All of its ingredients can be found in the human diet and no ingredients that are banned by any major sports organization have been included in its formula. It is impossible to say that any supplement (or most foods for that matter) is 100% free of all banned substances but no such substances have been included in its formulation.

    I tried the Hydra 6 Cookie Chaos. Like another reviewer, noticed that this product has an Oreo-type flavor to it, which was excellent. Most importantly to me though when choosing a protein, there was absolutely not bloating/gas feeling, which comes with low quality proteins. Quality product, great taste, cannot wait to try the other flavors.

    Great protein overall. Mixes extremely well in milk and in my opinion tastes better in milk. Was a bit skeptical when buying the strawberry; However, I was extremely impressed with the flavor. Tasted more like a glass of strawberry milk with a hint of cream which to me was amazing. Best favor I have every tried, hands down. I HIGHLY recommend this flavor. As for the chocolate, I was not a fan.

    This is a great product and I highly recommend purchasing hydra by grenade. I'm not a fan of protein shakes that leave clumps after mixing it up, but this product does a good job in taking care of that. I do all my mixing with a spoon and glass. I currently do not own a shaker bottle so I cannot tell you how it mixes, but from what I hear from my friends who use it it mixes well in the bottle. I am the kind of person that gets tired of certain flavors after several uses. When I saw the cookie flavor, I was expecting more of a cookie choc flavor, however, I get more of a oreo flavor which is amazing

    I have tried various protein powders before and this stuff never disappoints! I love having this protein around to be able to make shakes or even just to mix with Almond Milk for a pudding consistency. Yesterday I tried making it into a pudding consistency and then freezing it and it tasted just like ice cream. I don't have any urges to cheat with this protein powder around. The price is reasonable and it has a perfect amount of protein without a ton of carbs and it tastes amazing! I can't live without this stuff!

    I just started using this, great taste and mixes well. Seems to get good reviews and that's what sold me on it and I am not disappointed. I take one in the morning and one post workout with 2% Milk, never upset my stomach and really does taste great. Looking forward to trying some other new flavors.
