HydroMax™ is a clinically driven and branded form of highly concentrated glycerol powder (65%) designed by Glanbia Nutritionals, a leading name in highly effective sports nutrition ingredients. This highly concentrated glycerol becomes very difficult to incorporate into sports nutrition products as it absorbs moisture in powdered supplements and begins to get "clumpy" which is why Glanbia has a saying "if it ain't clumpin you ain't pumpin!" The clumping is the difference between all other pre and post workout products on the market and ours. That clumping is a result of the glycerol absorbing moisture and fluids which is exactly what it will be doing during your workout. At 700-2000 mg dosage, glycerol enhances plasma and intramuscular volume expansion, producing a more engorged muscular appearance and long lasting "pump".
HydroMax™ offers a unique combination of greater potency and function. The industry’s first highly concentrated (65%) yet stable form of powdered glycerol offering exceptional hydration in a uniquely optimized proprietary blend of glycerol and silica. GMS powdered glycerol typically utilized in sports nutrition offers a fraction of the potency of HydroMax™, typically achieving concentrations of only 5 to 12%. In addition, GMS is very hygroscopic, becoming unstable over time as it absorbs water. Thus, low concentrations of glycerol are required to prevent degradation and protect shelf stability. HydroMax™ is a preferred choice for sports nutrition products because it contains over 65% free molecular glycerol and is composed of a proprietary formulation to give it added advantages over straight glycerol alone.
Glycerol like that present in HydroMax™ is easily absorbed and distributed throughout the intracellular space, increasing the concentration of fluid in the blood and tissues, positively affecting osmolarity and the expansion and maintenance of fluid volume, known as hyperhydration. This brings potential benefits for endurance and stamina events, including adaptation to environmental heat/humidity stress, along with promoting blood flow associated with resistance training. Glycerol has also been shown to help athletes store extra water, delaying the need for hydration. This suggests improved efficiency in exercise, thermoregulation and decreased physiological stress.
So stop wondering why the supplements you have been taking do not produce the pump you are looking for. Check your current pre and post workout products and if HydroMax™ is not included in the supplement facts consider trading up for a higher quality supplement line to take your workouts to the next level!
