BRILLIANT! 31 Oct 2012
By Harkanwar Anand - Published on Amazon.com
Before buying this product I had many questions but no answers so I've decided to write this review in a Q&A format.

Q1. How should this be mixed?
A1. I mix in a mixer, I divide the one giant scoop into 2, add ice and mix and the result is amazing. Two glasses of amazing instantly active protein.

Q2. How does it taste?
A2. It tastes fine, definitely has more sugar than Pro Complex but not as much as Syntha 6 and has an overall slightly fuller feeling than say Pro Complex. Owing to this increase in sugar content, I sip the protein a little slower. It's also thicker so try to experiment with how much water. THIS IS NOT A MEAL REPLACEMENT protein and tends to get absorbed easily

Q3. How does this differ from Pro Complex?
A3. Pro Complex is an amazing product but I needed something more to up the ante. I do P90X and was not always able to complete all workouts, I'd run out of gas so I said why not try this product and trust me, I WAS SURPRISED at how powerful and energized I felt "at the end" of workouts. Not only am I not getting exhausted before finishing the workout, I am energized and refreshed at the end of the work out. Increase in energy over Pro Complex, increase in stamina, FASTEST RECOVERY, I don't skip days now unless the workout regime recommends it. It helped me pack muscle and made me more attentive at my workout.

Q4. Was this positive experience a case of beginner's luck?
A4. I ordered a 2lb box and only recently ordered a 5lb box. I noticed a definite increase in my body's speed of recovery. I am quarter way done with my 5 pound box and so far I have absolutely no complaints.

Yes, Hydrobuilder costs more than Syntha 6 or Pro Complex, but no protein has surprised me as much as this. It's overall the best powder I've tried. I would buy it again and again. I try not to skip gym on most days but I'm going away for a week now and it remains to be seen what will happen when Im away from this product and my workout.

Q5. Results so far..?
A5. More energy at gym, more definition, more lean muscle, now finally at 28 my biceps and triceps are in the best shape they have ever been in.

No excuses, just results.

HydroBuilder - Great Post-Workout 5 May 2011
By Diane - Published on Amazon.com
I love this product. I switched from my normal whey protein post-workout to ON's Hydrobuilder. Not only does the chocolate taste delicious, but it conveniently has everything I need for post-workout, including creatine and hydrolyzed whey protein. Plus it mixes easy and has a thick consistency that makes it more like a milkshake!

Who wants to save money? 14 July 2011
By Pennywise - Published on Amazon.com
This is an amazing product!...But buy the ingredients separately in bulk (Optimum Nutrition's Hydrowhey, 100% Egg protien, Casien, and their Micronized Creatine Monohydrate powder) and spend 10 minutes mixing it up yourself in a big container and save big. Feel free to verify my math but at the best prices OUT THERE (hint, hint), Hydrobuilder will cost you about $1.25 per serving while buying the ingredients in bulk ends up costing right at $0.85 per serving. At three serving a day that adds up to some very significant saving over time.

As an added bonus, buying the ingredients separately allows for much flexibility in your supplement regime. For example, when it's time to cycle off the creatine. Or if you just want the Hydrowhey first thing in the morning, or Casein right before you go to bed.

Don't say I never did anything for you.

Read this review. Seriously. 11 Jan 2012
By Seema Rikhy - Published on Amazon.com
I know many of you scrolling through reviews are looking for a few key things: 1. Will this make me look better naked 2. will this improve me from the inside out and 3. DOES IT TASTE GOOD? well look no further, the review is finally here that will answer all these questions and more. Platinum Hydro Builder is an absolutely amazing product. I've been on it for a month and I can absolutely guarantee you that I've put on more muscle [and fat- but that's granted due to my weight gain diet. it's very minimal too, still have a six pack and a V] than I've ever put on in my entire life. period. It WORKS if you're trying to build muscle, and it's not another product that's all hyped up. (like nitro core-my god.) Will it improve you from the inside out? hell yeah it will. the betapower betaine and the punch of digestive enzymes have been amazing to me digestion-wise.. I'll leave it at that haha. and last but not least- the taste. Okay, I can't vouche for strawberry since I have not tried it, but let me tell you I've tried vanilla and chocolate and they're the absolute most flawless, richest, most dreamiest protein powders that I've ever had. period. Seriously. both vanilla and chocolate are absolutely perfect. and here's the kick- since it's a post workout powder I've NEVER EVEN TRIED IT IN MILK. ONLY WATER. you heard it. I swear it tastes even better than myofusion, combat powder<-even cookies and cream!, SYNTHA-6, and gold standard. I can emphasize how absolutely delicious both of these flavors are. if you were to pick one of the two? go with chocolate. the chocolate I save for my special hell workouts (leg and circuit days). because it tastes so damn good. but if you're hooked on vanilla protein powders, don't hesitate to grab some vanilla. it's just as amazing. I recommend this to all of my friends. My advice? it is a tad expensive, even with the amazing ingredients and quality. so seriously, ignore the package details by taking it any other time besides post workout. you will be absolutely stunned. at least I was. I hope this helped, definitely grab a tub though if you're debating between this and pro complex or some other calorie-ridden gainer. this is the pathway to take to satisfaction and muscle.

Amazing taste with amazing results after 1 month! 2 Jun 2014
By j mac - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm a small chick working for a worldwide delivery and freight company working up to 12 hours each day doing extremely heavy labour positions. I handle 4000 plus parcels daily each averaging 40-50 pounds. I'm only 98 pounds with not much muscle and always felt stuff over 40 pounds were heavy. I have 2 conveyor belts I need to lift parcels up to that are about 5 feet above the ground and me being only 5'8", I have trouble lifting anything over 30pounds above my shoulders. After working the long shifts, I was beat and never had energy even during the weekends when I rested. Then I found this product.

1 week and a half after drinking 3 tablespoons per day after I get off work, I was able to lift 50 pounds with ease and put on 3 pounds of muscle. Lifting stuff at 40 pounds to the top 2 belts above shoulder level was becoming a bit easier.

1 month after drinking 3 tablespoons per day after I get off work religiously, I could lift up to 110 pounds at waist level. Gained 10 pounds of muscle. My current limit for lifting stuff above my shoulder level is 65 pounds depending on how big the parcel is when my company limited the weight to 75 pounds to those top two belts. Most of the men at my job could only lift how much I lift now and its amazing how they've come to respect me being a woman and working to their same standards if not more. During the weekends, I could even go swim laps for 3 hours and finally enjoy spending time with the family with much energy left. Power to weight ratio definitely is improved after usage. This type of power output coming from a gal weighing 111 pounds now. Not to brag but Im amazed that I can accomplished the same stuff as a 6'6" dude who weighs 240 pounds at my job.

As for taste: i might have some funky taste buds but I LOVE nutrient drinks like Ensure,etc. Not many people like them but if you can tolerate something like Ensure, you can definitely tolerate this powder. Dont like nutrient drinks and vomit on the slightest taste of it? Then this might not be for you. But honestly, the chocolate flavour is the best flavour Ive tasted compared to Body Fortress, Syntha 6 (whatever its called), and NuSkin's protein powders.
