DESCRIPTION

HIGH-POTENCY NATURAL ANABOLIC 

  • Reduce Myostatin for Unlocking New Growth Potential Ɨ 
  • Optimize & Amplify Muscle Protein Synthesis Ɨ 
  • Support Advanced Hypertrophy Ɨ 

 

We all want it…more muscle mass, more strength and faster results! Sure, there have been various things out there that can deliver such things previously, but at the potential cost of overall health as there can be some nasty side effects from these traditional methods. Enter Dragon Pharma Hydra – The High-Potency Natural Anabolic designed to help you unlock new muscle growth potential, accelerated recovery, intense pumps and enhanced performance at the gym, all without the unwanted side effects. 

 

How is this possible? We created Hydra using high-potency, natural anabolic and myostatin inhibitors from plants. Research backed and safe, the ingredients in Hydra will aid in increasing protein synthesis, amplifying training results and supporting an environment for hypertrophy (muscle growth). The result? Faster muscle growth, intense training pumps, enhanced strength and performance potential, amplified recovery and overall…more gains. Ɨ 

 

 HOW TO USE

 

Directions: Take 1 serving (2 capsules) of Hydra 45-60 minutes prior to your training session. On non-training days, take 1 serving (2 capsules) mid-day. 

 

SUPPLEMENT FACTS

 

 

 

SCIENCE 

Hydra Research Summary 

 

 

Arachidonic Acid 

 

Omega-6 ‘cousin’ to EPA that is synthesized from linoleic acid; Found in brain where it comprises 10-12% of total fatty acids and in muscle, comprising 15-17% of total fatty acids1 

 

Provides inflammation, a necessary immune response to repairing damaged tissue that is activated during injury or irritation (such as strength training); Precursor to various leukotrienes, prostaglandins, and thromboxane - collectively known as eicosanoids2 

 

Produces two prostaglandins – PGE2 & PGE2α; Work to increase protein breakdown and stimulate protein synthesis – Translates to potentially increasing skeletal muscle fiber growth3,4 

 

Suggested to increase lean body mass, strength and power output5,6 

 

Eucommia Ulmoides Extract 

 

Contains phytoandrogens which can help augment signaling of other androgens through androgen receptors, therefore increasing their efficacy7 

 

Shown to provide muscle building effects through androgen receptors without the negative prostate or hair-loss  stimulation effects associated with testosterone8 

 

May potentially aid in skeletal muscle development, bone density improvement, increased training capacity and increases in libido9–11 

 

 

 Smilax sieboldii (Std. For Laxogenin) 

 

Plant based compound referred to as one of the brassinosteroids12 

 

Exhibits anabolic properties similar to that of the drug anavar, yet is NON-hormonal and does not interfere with the body’s natural endocrine system (doesn’t alter testosterone nor estrogen levels).13 

 

Potentially aids in the growth of lean muscle mass and improved body composition14 

 

 

Apigenin 

Naturally occurring compound found in parsley, but also in smaller quantities in celery, oranges, grapefruit, and chamomile15 

Shown to act as an anti-inflammatory agent for reducing inflammation related issues16 

Research has shown it to not only enhance muscle hypertrophy but to also prevent muscle breakdown17 

 

 

 

Black Pepper Extract 

 

Increases the bioavailability of other ingredients and increases time active in system by downregulating enzymes18 

 

Shown to increase absorption by slowing intestinal transit rate and thus prolonging the time said compounds are exposed to the potential uptake19 

 

Inhibits glucuronidation in the liver, a process that attaches a molecule (glucuronide) to drugs to signal for their urinary excretion. This is a natural process that safeguards the body from too high of levels of drugs and supplements, but on the downside, it inhibits all uptake and renders some supplements useless.20Page Break
