What is Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro Builder?
Platinum Hydro Builder is a great all in one protein shake. This means that Optimum Nutrition have added other supplements, that they sell individually, to this product to make one all-encompassing shake.
Two scoops (52 g) is the recommended serving size. This provides 35.1 g of protein, 5.8 g of carbohydrates and 2 g of fats. The protein in Platinum Hydro Builder comes in many different forms. Two key types are whey protein isolate and micellar casein. Whey protein isolate is high quality and is very fast absorbing, meaning that your muscles are quickly supplied with protein for repair after a workout. Micellar casein is a slow digesting protein, meaning that amino acids continue to be released from its digestion many hours later. This ensures that your muscles have a constant supply of the amino acids that they require for growth and repair.
Platinum Hydro Builder can be treated as an all in one shake, as it has the ingredients of some other supplements. Per serving the shake contains approximately 5 g of creatine monohydrate. Creatine monohydrate has two main uses: it increases strength and draws water into the muscle cells. This means that your training will be more intense as you will be able to lift a greater weight, stimulating greater muscle hypertrophy. In addition your muscles will look larger as they have more water in them. Platinum Hydro Builder boasts a large quantity and variety of essential amino acids, each serving has approximately 13.5 g which is composed of 8 different essential amino acids. These essential amino acids can only be obtained through the diet, having a large variety ensures your body has all the components to build proteins required in muscle growth. Platinum Hydro Builder also contains an enzyme complex which will aid digestion and help to reduce bloating.
When to take Platinum Hydro Builder?
Platinum Hydro Builder is a great protein shake to take post-workout. On top of the advantages of consuming protein and carbohydrates after a workout, the optimal time to take creatine (which Platinum Hydro Builder contains) is also post-work out. For the best results take the shake within 30 minutes of training.
Who should take Platinum Hydro Builder?
Due to the all in one nature of Platinum Hydro Builder it is more expensive than a normal protein shake. Therefore if you have a tight budget, you will be better off buying normal protein. However having all your supplements in one place makes Platinum Hydro Builder a very attractive option to anyone looking to improve their physique.
