HydroHD is the fastest absorbing protein source available on the market today. It is a perfect mix between hydrolyzed whey protein and PeptoPro that contains mostly dipeptides and tripeptides which are absorbed more rapidly than intact proteins. This fast absorption rate is highly desirable for professional athletes looking for rapid absorption and recovery after intense workout. The chains of amino acids are broken down through hydrolysis in order to promote rapid absorption and, as a result, muscle growth and repair. HydroHD is also known to influence the production of insulin which is highly important for initiating post-exercise restoration of glycogen stores and protein anabolism. Another practical benefit of hydrolyzed whey protein is that it can be ingested immediately after intense exercise with a much lower risk of bloating and discomfort. HydroHD contains naturally high levels of essential and branched-chain amino acids for maximising muscle growth and post-exercise recovery. It also contains added alanyl L-glutamine, HMB, BCAA in a 8:1:1 ratio to effectively prevent muscle breakdown and to promote muscle building and recovery.
BCAAs are the building blocks needed to develop strong and powerful muscles. In contrast to proteins, amino acids do not require complex products of digestion in order to be utilized by the body. After consumption amino acids can be absorbed from the intestinal lumen into the bloodstream and then directly supplied to the working muscles, which reduces time and energy expenditure. The body primarily uses amino acids in anabolic processes to synthesize new proteins and to repair damaged ones. BCAAs are well known for their anti-catabolic (muscle breakdown prevention) and anabolic (muscle building) effects. It has been found that BCAAs (particularly leucine) increase the synthesis rate of our whey protein.
HMB does not directly stimulate muscles, but it prevents muscle breakdown. In the long run, this results in muscle development. HMB blocks muscle breakdown by directly blocking the enzymes that attack muscle fibres. Recent studies suggest that HMB may also act on muscles very much like whey: it "tells" your body to build more muscle by boosting protein synthesis.
Builds muscle: Let’s look at an early study on HMB to see how it influences muscle development. In a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, men were given HMB or placebo. In just two weeks, the muscle mass of the HMB group significantly increased. This may not sound remarkable, but keep in mind that two weeks is a very short time to pile on muscle mass, yet HMB was able to do that. As the weeks marched on, muscle continued to grow. Other studies have confirmed the findings of this early research.
Increases strength: In the past, there had been some debate as to whether HMB increased strength in people who were already fit and strong. That’s when researchers from Massey University in New Zealand decided to give HMB to well-trained athletes. Surprisingly, they found that HMB was in fact able to increase lower body strength as compared with placebo. Since then, these findings have been confirmed by numerous other studies. It turns out that whether you’re a gym rat or couch potato, HMB can help you lift more.
Boosts Endurance: When HMB is given to endurance athletes, it has been shown to help damaged muscles to recover. It seems that the same signalling pathways that HMB uses to help weightlifters pack on muscle also benefits endurance athletes by promoting muscles repair after a particularly strenuous workout. Moreover, a small study on endurance athletes found that HMB boosted oxygen uptake, known as VO2 max, during interval training. It is yet to be determined whether HMB can directly boost performance of endurance athletes like runners and swimmers. Unfortunately, most researches are limited to short-term studies and therefore it has yet to be determined whether enhanced recovery can actually help endurance athletes to run, pedal, or swim for a longer period of time.
In glutamine peptides, the peptide bond ensures purity, stability and better absorption. Glutamine peptides help to build lean mass, fight catabolism and can have immunomodulatory properties.
