    Echo Supplements on Grenade Hydra 6
    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.

    Grenade Hydra 6 - Manufacturer's Description
    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.

    Declare War
    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). And no protein can crank up essential amino acid levels to a higher peak than whey protein isolate. 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. 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.

    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. 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!

    We should also mention - it tastes awesome!

    Grenade Hydra 6 - FAQs
    Can I take Hydra 6 alongside other Grenade supplements?

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

    Is Hydra 6 suitable for vegetarians?

    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.

    Who can benefit from Hydra 6?
    Bodybuilders & strength athletes, competitive athletes, vegetarians, recreational exercisers and those new to weight/ strength training and anyone else who is looking for a simple way to get more protein in their diet.

    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’m in the military, can I use Grenade Hydra 6?
    Hydra 6 has been designed for athletes, fitness professionals, bodybuilders and the military, many of whom are tested for the use of banned substances. This is why no ingredients were added that contravene the rules of the International Olympic Committee, World Anti-Doping Agency, bodybuilding federations or the military. Grenade products have always been widely used by UK and US military personnel. Users consume all food supplements at their own risk, however. It is not on the Informed Sport programme.

    I tried chocolate charge - excellent flavour, deep and rich - lovely in water and really tasty.

    Protein blend - no complaints with the sources, good quality, no nasties and at the more impressive end of the spectrum compared to some, no fillers in sight.

    Mixed extremely well, will barely notice the casein content as it is very smooth.

    If I could award a half star I would, but based on the price alone it gets a 4/5 as at nearly £1 per serving it is more of a premium priced product than others, and won't be budget friendly to all for longer periods, but it is well worth trying and definitely a recommended product
    Will 17/08/2014
    Was looking forward to trying this after the excellent flapjack and was quite pleased.
    Chocolate charge was a good tasting shake that mixed well and with milk had a good creamy texture.
    A mix of slow and fasting acting proteins,ideally suited to pre-bed in my opinion to dril feed muscles through the night.
    50 quid on first looking seems pricey,but with 51 servings and coming in at less than £1 a serving it works quite goid.
    Overall it's good tasting and mixing and reasonable value.
    Another goid product from grenade.
    Jamie 13/08/2014
    Strawberry Siege - For starters as with all the other grenade range the names of these are great but borderline comical!
    However onto the nitty gritty of the review.
    The taste is kind of chemical, it's definitely strawberry and smells great but there's is a hint of something not so great.
    Looking at the ingredients i'm more than happy to put up with the flavour to get this down me.
    I like the fact its a 50/50 mix meaning i only need t buy one product and the serving size makes it good value for money.

    All in all i'd recommend this product, i'm going to try a different flavour though.
    Chris 12/08/2014
    Grenade are back with their funky packaging and weird names. What Hydra 6 means to a protein powder I have no idea (it's an AA gun isn't it?). The only other 50:50 whey Isolate & casein mix I'm aware of comes from Warrior - and they are very similar. It's a nice basic ingredient profile and the idea of a fast & slow whey together without the carbs or fat make this a good brekky shake or bedtime one for many diet styles.

    The mixability is good, but the shake is rather thin with may go better with milk. The same goes for the taste. In water it tasted rather icky to me. Having tried some nice strawberry shakes of late, this definitely isn't one of them. Top marks for the content of the product, but next time I'll try a different flavour (when it's on offer).
    Lee 11/08/2014
    I purchased this because of the 50:50 split. It’s ideal really. It’s a great shake to have before bed – to quickly elevate MPS (with Isolate) and then to supply the body with constant slow releasing (Casein) protein throughout the night.

    Mixability is brilliant. I forgot my little metal ball which I use in my shaker to help blend everything and even then, the solution mixed perfectly into 500ml of full fat milk.

    Strawberry Siege is delicious. It’s very tasty and reminds me more of strawberries and Cream rather than just strawberries.

    Although you may think £49.99 is expensive for 1816g, it equates to 98p a serving, which is priced very aggressively and is quite cheap considering what you get.

    Really enjoyed this. Great product.
    Barry 05/08/2014
    The protein in this product only comes from a 50/50 blend of Micellar Casein and Whey Protein Isolate. So top marks for that! Not many protein powders can say that.
    I tried the Strawberry Siege flavour. Very nice flavour indeed. A thin shake and I could've easily downed a litre of these shake.
    Macros are: 70% protein, 8% carbs, fat 5%.

    As this is quite a thin shake you won't notice the casein in it at all as it mixes immediately with no lumps.

    To be honest I'd like a higher protein % for the price. £49.99p for 1.816kgs.
    But the protein sources are great and the taste is even better!
    Andy 04/08/2014
    I was looking forward to trying this new protein from Grenade.

    It is 50/50 mix of Whey isolate and Micellar Casein with a good 25g of protein and low on carbs and fat. It is an ideal protein you can have anytime of day.

    I tried the chocolate charge flavour which was very nice. The only negative I found was the consistency of this protein. I seemed to be shaking it for quite a while but I still found it to be quite grainy compared to other proteins.

    Mix ability aside, I would still recommend this protein. It's a top quality protein from Grenade, and although it is not the cheapest you get a good 51 servings from a trusted brand.

    Drew 31/07/2014
    Easily on par with the best on the market!!

    Hydra 6 is a 50/50 blend of Whey Isolate and Micellar Casein - PERFECT for post exercise, but equally as good for before bed, as a snack, to be honest, pretty much any time!!

    The taste is fantastic too, rich and creamy, it tastes like a real treat without the guilt!!

    24g of protein per serving with under 2g of fat make this nutritionally one of the best on the market.

    With 0.2g of net carbs, this is perfect for keto dieters too!!

    Mix this with Grenade's Fat Burners ( ) and you have a winning combination!!
    Nick 28/07/2014
    Wow best tasting micellar casein product I have ever tried.
    Granted it's a fifty fifty split with whey isolate but still so impressed.
    All other brands I have tried thus far have been super thick and difficult to blend, no such issues with this, the strawberry siege flavour is incredible.
    Casien tends to be expensive and this one isn't any different in cost but where it beats the others hands down is it's ease of mixing and flavour.
    Loved it, would be without question my slow feeder of choice, yummy!.
    The packaging is very impressive also but I love all the grenade range.
    Dale 27/07/2014
    This was my first time trying the new Grenade Hydra 6 Protein and I must say I am extremely impressed!
    A new blend of 50% Whey Isolate (Fast acting) and 50% Micellar Casein (Slow acting)proteins gives you the best of both worlds as they are both the highest quality protein in their category, suitable for consumption at any time of the day and would save on buying numerous other protein products.
    The Chocolate Charge flavour has such a rich dark chocolate smell, is a very fine powder and tastes fantastic! It mixes extremely well in water and was extremely smooth with no bubbles or lumps present.
    The packaging too is top quality, it is very eye-catching and looks as if it will get the job done.
    Grenade are a very sought after workout brand and they certainly do not disappoint with this product.
    The pricing is as expected with top-quality ingredients to get top-quality results.
    You have really got to try it, so go and buy it now!
