Grenade Hydra 6 has been formulated to be the only protein shake you need to buy for all times of the day including first thing in the morning and before bed. To achieve this Grenade have paired up the fastest releasing protein source: whey protein isolate, and the slowest: micellar casein. The end result of this is that when you have a serving of Hydra 6 you get an almost instant hit of protein from the whey protein isolate and this is sustained for over 6 hours due to the micellar casein content.
Whey protein isolate has been chosen as the fast releasing component of Hydra 6 because it is extremely low in carbohydrate and fats which makes it very easy to digest when compared to lower grade whey concentrates, and also very rich in branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and glutamine. Whilst whey protein isolate is not a cheap ingredient it is the most effective and this is why is has been included in the Hydra 6 formula.
When it comes to slower releasing protein sources Micellar Casein is the undisputed best choice; there are other options which may be cheaper to include, or taste nicer but when designing a product for it's effects you really want the best and Grenade have provided that with micellar casein. The effect of the slow releasing part of Hydra 6 is to prevent muscle breakdown (catabolism) - micellar casein is strongly anti-catabolic and it's effects last at least 6 hours.
While this is great, the most important effect of Hydra 6 is that the effects of this 50:50 blend are actually more than the sum of their parts. It has been proven that as well as having an anti-catabolic effect, a whey protein and casein blend also has a stronger anabolic (muscle building) effect than whey protein on it's own! This makes Hydra 6 a really intelligent choice of protein shake as well as being more convenient with only having to buy a single protein product for all times of the day. Hydra 6 is available in 4 flavours and 2 sized tubs - this product is the larger 1816g tub which provides 51 servings in a tub.
