The winds are changing: It’s time to try Cyclone


Delivering Results for 25 Years

Why settle for anything less? Cyclone is our premium product - an all-in-one powder that packs a powerful punch. Typical to form, a new consumer will often try Promax as the first option, but as with many others, quickly move on to its bigger brother, Cyclone. Since 1995, Cyclone has been our number 1 selling product and here’s why.

Cyclone over the years

It’s always great to hear those past stories from consumers talking about when they used to use Cyclone. Over 2 decades it’s more than likely that you would try other products, but one that you should definitely put back on the list, is Cyclone. With continued innovation and advances in food technology, we believe that Cyclone is the best, but if we can make it better, then we will, and to be honest we have. 

Today’s Cyclone is a 100% whey only protein powder, there's an improved protein blend (54% Whey Protein Isolate) to support muscle growth and strength, a blend of whey concentrate, isolate and hydrolysate. We weigh each of the amino acids found per 100g of protein, whichs gives a true protein content, something that isn’t widely conducted within the industry. 

Being an all-in-one Cyclone contains a synergistic group of ingredients, along with protein, that will help improve and develop your muscle strength and power.

What’s in Cyclone and Why?

Let’s talk about the macros first, per 100g Cyclone is 335 kcal, 20g carbohydrate (5.7g sugar), just 1.6g fat (1.1g saturates) and 51.5g Protein (of course there are minor changes to this, based on flavour). There are less calories, less fat and less sugar than ever before. There's more protein than ever before, now 31-32g per 60g of Cyclone, with 21 Servings per Tub. More and more of us are trying to avoid sugar and added carbohydrate, but this is added to Cyclone as maltodextrin and naturally present from the protein sources. The carbohydrate in cyclone is for a variety of reasons: energy support, assist nutrient absorption and for taste. You are training hard, so the added carbohydrate is a good thing. 

This is also a similar reason for the fat levels; these are naturally unavoidable from whey protein and also added from the MCT (medium chain triglycerides) added to cyclone. MCT’s bolster the energy content, whilst aiding nutrient absorption. The MCT’s in cyclone also help to make some of the added ingredients more palatable, such as Calcium HMB. MCT’s also have been involved in some interested nutrition studies which might be worth investigating.  Cyclone also contains added glutamine; the most abundant amino acid in the human body. Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid, meaning that its naturally produced within the body. Glutamine is found in a range of protein sources, in meat, plant source and of course dairy, such as whey. Often referred to as a conditionally essential amino acid, because the body can find it difficult to make up the increased glutamine turnover.

Three to watch

Cyclone has three ingredients that are added exclusively to stimulate a physiological response. These ingredients are Creatine – 5g per serve, Calcium HMB – 1.5g per serve and Zinc – 2.5mg per serve.

1. Creatine

A non-essential dietary compound that is scientifically proven to increase high intensity repeated bouts of exercise and therefore performance. In layman’s terms, creatine gives you the ability to do more of the hard stuff, repeatedly. The more you do, the greater the gains. Creatine supplementation helps rapid rejuvenation of the immediate energy source, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) – that energy source used in high explosive movements, such as Squats. For more on creatine, check out section on our ingredients.

2. Calcium HMB

Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate is an active metabolite of the essential amino acid Leucine. Leucine is possibly the ‘superstar’ of all the amino acid with its role in protein synthesis. HMB is actually made naturally within the body through oxidation of leucine, albeit only a small amount. It can also be found in certain foods, such as avocado and asparagus, but again only in small quantities, therefore for larger amounts, supplementation is the preferred option. HMB unlike creatine doesn’t have an approved health claim, although it still remains a favourite in those wishing to improve muscle mass. Slightly aside, HMB is prescribed to cancer and HIV/AIDS sufferers to support wound healing and defence against muscle wastage. For more on HMB, click here for dedicated area on the website.

3. Zinc

A dietary mineral that is essential for a healthy wellbeing. Typically, zinc is prescribed when an individual is suffering with a known deficiency. Zinc along with other minerals and vitamins is lost in sweat and urine, which is heightened with physical activity. Zinc is present in many foods and animal products are better sources than plant foods. Good sources of zinc can be found in organ meats, red meat, seafood, poultry and dairy. Zinc plays a number of roles within the human body, but perhaps most pertinent to exercise is: 

  • Zinc contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism 
  • Zinc contributes to normal protein synthesis 
  • Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, nails and skin 
  • Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood 

Cyclone comes in 4 great flavours – Banoffee, Chocolate, Strawberry, and Vanilla. Is it time you made the switch? Check out the product link below.
