8 Grams BCAAs & Caffeine = Muscle Dominance!

  • 8 Grams of BCAAs per Serving - 2:1:1 Ratio
  • Stimulates Protein Synthesis
  • Electrolyte Minerals for Complete Hydration
  • Increases Energy With Caffeine & TeaCrine

One of the most exciting discoveries in recent years has been the impact BCAAs have on protein synthesis, which leads directly to muscle growth. Not only is muscle growth largely dependent on the rate of protein synthesis in the body, recovery is also. Of course, full recovery between workouts is a must if you want maximum results. So, how does the rate of protein synthesis work?

There are two factors involved: protein synthesis (also called muscle protein synthesis, or MPS for short) and muscle protein breakdown (or, MPB for short). Simply put, if MPS exceeds MPB, then there is a positive protein balance. On the other hand, if MPB exceeds MPS, there is a negative protein balance.  

The BCAA’s, especially the super-anabolic leucine, has been clinically shown to stimulate protein synthesis, thereby putting the body in a state of positive protein balance. They do this by mTOR pathway activation. Briefly, the mTOR pathway combines cellular signals and regulates cell metabolism as well as growth. By stimulating the mTOR pathway, the body is signalled to build new muscle. Additionally, BCAA’s prevent muscle breakdown, making them anti-catabolic. 

As exciting as all of this is, you don’t want to use just any BCAA formula, you need one that’s clinically dosed and in the proven ratio of 2:1:1. You also need one that thinks outside the box – like Hydra8 by Sparta Nutrition!

Just like the Spartans were superior soldiers, Hydra8 is a superior BCAA formula – we jumped ahead of the competition by including the right ingredients for optimal muscle protein synthesis – like a full 4 grams of Leucine – why dose at the low end of the studies, or worse yet, under dose at 2.5 grams like so many BCAA formulas do? Dosed at the clinically proven ratio of 2:1:1, there’s a total of 8 grams of BCAAs – just like the Hydra of ancient mythology had 8 heads.

What else did we put in Hydra8?

L-Glutamine – 3 grams – This is another highly anabolic amino acid that supports protein synthesis and recovery. It works synergistically with the BCAAs for the maximum anabolic benefit.

Citrulline Malate – 1.5 grams – One of the most effective nitric oxide (pumps!) compounds on the market, we’ve included it here to help get great pumps as well as to support maximum nutrient delivery to your muscles. We’ve used a combination of citrulline and malic acid – this complex has been shown to not only promote great pumps, it also increases ATP production, the energy source your muscles use to power you through your workout. With citrulline malate, you’ll get bot great pumps and extended endurance!

Caffeine – 120 mg – Yes, that’s right, we’ve put caffeine in Hydra8 – just enough for a kick, yet you can still stack it with your favorite pre-workout, or even used as a stand-alone Pre if you don’t like a lot of stims.

TeaCrine® Theacrine – 125 mg -  Similar to caffeine, this ingredient enhances focus and concentration while providing extended energy that offsets the quick, sometimes harsh energy of caffeine – it’s the perfect combination!

This Isn’t Just Another BCAA – This Is A Spartan BCAA – Hydra8 by Sparta Nutrition!
