HydroSwell ProLoco

How do I mix ProLoco?

To mix ProLoco you need 2 things...


1. A tightly sealed bottle, ideally a shaker bottle.

2. H20, preferably the ice-cold kind.


INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Pour 16-20 oz of ice-cold water into your shaker bottle.

Step 2: Add 1 serving of ProLoco and seal the lid tightly.

Step 3: Shake it up like your life depends on it for about 20-30 seconds!

Step 4: Let it sit for 30-60 seconds for any foaming to dissolve

Step 5: Go Loco aka Drink Up!


Pro Tip #1: If you let the bottle sit for a while between sips, give it another shake before drinking every once in a while to keep the flavor consistent.


Pro Tip #2: The amount of water you use is all a matter of personal preference so we suggest starting with about 16 oz of H2O, tasting it, and adding more until you reach your ideal flavor profile.

When should I drink ProLoco?

The best times to drink ProLoco are

1) When you're low on energy and need a power-up (Morning or Afternoon)

2) To replace junk fuel (drinks & snacks full of sugar and unhealthy ingredients)

3) Before/during your workout or strenuous activity.

4) To crush cravings! 

How many servings can I drink daily?

For our caffeinated versions of ProLoco and ProLoco Más, you should limit your daily intake to two 2-3 servings per day depending on the other sources of caffeine that you're consuming.


According to the FDA, a healthy adult can safely consume around 400 mg of caffeine each day, so be aware that with each serving of caffeinated ProLoco, you are getting 80 mg of natural caffeine and ProLoco Más contains 100 mg of natural caffeine per serving.


As for the caffeine-free versions, there is no limit to the number of servings of ProLoco or ProLoco Más that can be consumed daily so feel free to drink multiple servings while also consuming plenty of unprocessed whole foods.


We suggest 1 serving of original ProLoco and one serving of ProLoco Más daily to help supplement your daily protein needs and stay properly hydrated and energized.

What's the difference between ProLoco and ProLoco Más?

The word "Más" in Spanish means "More". ProLoco Más got its name because it's similar to our original ProLoco but with a lot more protein and a touch more caffeine in the caffeinated version.

ProLoco Más has 21 grams of protein per serving compared to 8 grams per serving in the original ProLoco.

ProLoco Más has 100 mg of natural caffeine per serving compared to 80 mg of caffeine per serving in the original ProLoco.

ProLoco and ProLoco Más can be used interchangeably throughout your day depending on your protein requirements but the big difference is that ProLoco Más is a more optimal post-workout choice since it has more protein to aid in muscle recovery whereas the original ProLoco is best used before or during your workout.

Remember, we have a caffeine-free version too so if caffeine isn't your "cup of tea" then you can still enjoy all the benefits of ProLoco Más!

What form of protein is in ProLoco?

ProLoco and ProLoco Más are both made with a specially filtered type of whey protein isolate sourced from ethical American dairies. It is a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids, has a unique taste that makes ProLoco's signature refreshing fruity taste possible, and is clinically proven to be an ideal protein for muscle recovery and maintenance.

Is there lactose in ProLoco?

Although the protein used is derived from milk, it's gone through a natural filtration process to remove all the lactose so even lactose intolerant people should have no problems drinking ProLoco or ProLoco Más.

How long will it stay good once mixed?

Once mixed, it's best to consume within 1-2 hours. If you don't drink it all by then, store it in the refrigerator where it should stay good for a few weeks. Use the smell test if you're unsure. 


It's important to note that ProLoco and ProLoco Más contain protein that can spoil quickly when exposed to heat so avoid leaving your drink in a hot car and be sure to wash your shaker bottle after each use.


If you've ever forgotten about a shaker bottle that had protein in it you know how terrible it can smell after a few days.

What diets does ProLoco conform with?

ProLoco is keto-friendly and vegetarian.

When should I drink ProLoco Más?

ProLoco Más is meant to help you meet your daily protein requirements, stay hydrated, and give you crash-free energy, so there isn't one specific time to use it. Here are a few ideas to get your wheels spinning...


#1 Post Workout Recovery


We built ProLoco Más with post-workout recovery in mind which is why it contains 21 grams of protein, the optimal amount that can be absorbed by your muscles in one sitting according to clinical studies. Recovery doesn't end with protein though. Replenishing electrolytes and vitamins lost through sweat is crucial which is why ProLoco Más contains hydrating electrolytes and B vitamins to complete the recovery process. Finally, we asked ourselves what the ideal flavor profile would be.  When you are tired, hot, and thirsty after a strenuous workout, in our experience, the last thing you want to drink is a thick chalky choco/vanilla protein shake. ProLoco Más is light, refreshing, and thirst-quenching. 


#2 Protein-Powered Snack


Besides post-workout recovery, ProLoco Más will help you meet your daily protein needs which is why it will make for a great afternoon snack or even a part of a healthy breakfast routine. It will also help you crush cravings, supporting healthy weight management.


#3 For Clean Crash-Free Energy


When you need a power-up, pick ProLoco Más! With 100 mg of natural caffeine in the caffeinated option, ProLoco Más is a great power-up when you need energy, plus protein stabilizes blood sugar, helping you have a steady energy boost without jitters or a crash.


#4 In Place of Junk Fuels


If you're like most people, you probably have a dependence on some form of junk fuel, whether it's sugary snacks, energy drinks, or coffee with too many shots of caramel. A great habit to develop is to drink our original ProLoco or ProLoco Más instead which will help you feel your best now, with no trade-offs later.

HydroSwell Collagen Protein

How to use HydroSwell Collagen Protein Powder

HydroSwell Collagen is a versatile product that can be used in a variety of ways and is most beneficial when consumed daily. 


Most people mix collagen into smoothies, juice, and hot drinks. Many of our customers will add a scoop of HydroSwell Collagen to their ProLoco or ProLoco Más for an extra protein boost. It's tasteless & mixes easily so it can also be added to meals such as soups, apple sauce, and cottage cheese.

What type of collagen is it?

Collagen can come from many different animals including marine life, chicken, and cows.


Our collagen peptides come from 100% grass-fed cows for a few reasons.


1. They are the best tasting and what we mean by that is they're literally tasteless!


2. Grass-fed Bovine (cow) collagen is very bioavailable meaning your body can absorb it easily so that you get all the benefits of the nutrients in it! 

What does "hydrolyzed" mean?

Hydrolyzed collagen (also known as collagen peptides) is collagen that's been broken down into more easily dissolvable amino acids so the body can better use the nutrients in it and gain all the great benefits like healthy bones, joints, hair, skin, and nails.
