Quantum® was designed to be the best all-in-one supplement on the market. Many of the all-in-ones currently available suffer from being either high in sugar or taste foul so we at Hydrapharm knew that the challenge in creating the best on the market would mean resolving these two problems.
Quantum® is powered by the Quantum Protein Matrix which utilizes only the highest quality whey protein and milk protein sources shown in research to both cause muscle anabolism and maintenance of muscle mass. This means Quantum® can be used at any time of the day and work equally well.
Quantum® is the only all-in-one on the market to feature Palatinose, a unique carbohydrate shown to provide a stable energy source.
What sets Quantum® apart from other all-in-ones on the market is the inclusion of novel ingredients such as agmatine, citrulline malate, rhodiola rosea, as well as the trusted standbys of creatine, beta-alanine, and glutamine. Quantum® is the first all-in-one supplement to include such a diverse array of ingredients and we believe it is what sets Quantum® apart from others in this category.
Finally, having a great formula is great but we didn´t neglect taste at all. Hydrapharm have always placed a premium on taste and mixability and Quantum® lives up to the ambitions of the brand. Whatever flavour you choose in Quantum® we promise it will be the best tasting, high quality all-in-one supplement you have ever tried.
Quantum´s power complex is the ultimate solution for powering lean muscle gains, delivering vastly improved muscle pumps, and enhancing recovery from training.
BCAA - BCAA´s are among the most research supported ingredients in the sports nutrition with evidence supporting their ability to increase muscle protein synthesis and recovery, as well as to support better lean mass retention and increased use of bodyfat when in a calorie deficit.
Creatine Nitrate - Creatine has become the most popular supplement for any athlete who competes in a sport requiring explosive strength and speed. Creatine increases the body´s ability to perform at maximum intensity for longer. This means that instead of failing at rep 8, most people using creatine will notice they are able to get an extra couple of reps in the gym, or maintain maximal velocity in a sprint for longer. While creatine by itself is a fantastic supplement, Quantum® goes further and bonds creatine to nitrate. Nitrates have become one of the hottest ingredients in recent years with research conducted in a number of different sports showing their ability to both enhance muscle endurance and also to drive amazing muscle pumps. By incorporating creatine nitrate in Quantum®, users get a product that delivers rapid gains in size and strength alongside greater vascularity.
HMB - HMB is an ingredient which has fallen in and out of fashion over the years but there is nothing else with as much scientific research showing its ability to reduce muscle damage and increase recovery from arduous training sessions. In a recent study in the British Journal of Nutrition, HMB not only lowered markers of muscle damage but also increased readiness to train again after a strenous workout. In a second study from 2011, HMB was shown to increase muscle mass, strength, and anaerobic power to a sigificant extent in volleyball players.
Agmatine - Agmatine is a metabolite of the amino acid arginine. Arginine has been used in bodybuilding for decades for its purported ability to increase nitric oxide levels. Unfortunately, the doses of arginine required to increase vascularity are so large that arginine has been panned by a great many bodybuilders as useless. While the jury is out on arginine, agmatine has a much better track record acting as not just a nitric oxide supplement but also having more widespread uses for athletes due to its ability to improve insulin sensitivity, enhance performance, increase endurance and decrease bodyfat. Aside from performance benefits, agmatine is also widely used for those interested in better health on account of its antioxidant and neuroprotective benefits.
When you need to promote better local muscle endurance, fight through the dreaded lactic acid burn, or enhance cardiovascular performance, a select list of ingredients have been proven both in research and the real world to deliver the benefits of higher reps using light weights, increased intra-workout recovery, and better resistance to fatigue.
Beta Alanine - Beta alanine has rapidly become the second most popular ingredient behind creatine in a short space of time. Where creatine is of greatest benefit to those engaged in sports where peak intensities need to be maintained for a brief period of time, beta-alanine is the tool of choice when it comes to delaying fatigue over extended exercise duration. Beta-alanine normally takes a little longer to take effect than creatine but by around three weeks of usage users of Quantum® can expect to see better muscle pumps, greater resistance to the effects of fatigue, and better recovery from training.
Trimethylglycine - Trimethylglycine, also known as betaine, has exploded in popularity in the last couple of years after studies showed it could increase the number of reps subjects completed in a squat workout compared to a placebo, as well as a study showing that users of the supplement increased their sprint performance by 6% compared to a placebo group. With an abundance of evidence in human subjects, including experienced trainers, the inclusion of trimethylglycine in Quantum® was a no brainer.
Citrulline Malate - Citrulline malate is usually seen in pre-workout supplements where it is valued for its ability to increase muscle pumps via its vasodilatory effects. In addition, citrulline malate has been shown in studies to have positive effects on circulatory health, growth hormone output, extending workout capacity and lowering muscle soreness.
Improving performance is one part of the puzzle for athletes but equally important is the need to recover optimally from training. This is why the Hydrapharm® recovery system was included within Quantum®.
Zinc and Magnesium - Zinc and magnesium deficiencies are common in athletes and can lead to not only impaired performance but decreased sleep quality and lower testosterone levels. Quantum® ensures that you cover your bases in this respect and this helps to ensure that not only do you set new records in the gym, but that you optimise the hormonal environment to ensure that your body is well rested for each new training session.
Hydrapharm® know that no matter how great a product looks, if your central nervous system is fatigued, athletes are never able to hit their potential in sport. Quantum® addresses this problem by including two adaptogens/nootropics which enable users to maintain a higher state of mental performance both inside and outside the gym but without the side effects associated with stimulants that can cause adrenal fatigue.
Rhodiola Rosea - Rhodiola Rosea is a herb which has been used for centuries and shown to help combat physical and mental fatigue as well being neuroprotective (rhodiola has potential anti-aging benefits). Of particular note, rhodiola has also been shown to increase muscle EPO content (naturally increasing this extends endurance) as well as being shown in human studies to increase performance in endurance events.
Methylcobalmin - Methylcobalmin is the most potent form of vitamin B12 which has been widely touted as a natural energy booster. It has also been used in clinical settings to combat neuropathy, and is a critical vitamin without which performance and health becomes severely compromised.
