MASS GAIN PROTEIN

In the game of health and fitness, not everyone wants to lose weight or get skinnier; you may actually need or want to gain weight. If so, it’s important to do it in a way that does not increase the risk of illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes, that can occur as a result of excess fat gain.

If you’re someone who has difficulty gaining weight through diet or training (‘a hard gainer’) you can benefit from the use of weight gain protein powders. These supplements are protein blends that supply your body with high doses of fuel (kilojoules) through a mix of high quality whey and/or casein protein with a specifically targeted amino acid profile, carbohydrates, essential fats, vitamins, and protein-digesting enzymes. Protein powders for weight gain often contain creatine – an organic compound that supplies energy to the cells. Creatine supplementation has been scientifically proven to improve exercise performance and capacity, which in turn can enable athletes and strength trainers to build up more muscle mass and strength. Studies have also shown that creatine uptake works best when taken with carbohydrates, which can make creatine-containing protein blends very beneficial for building up lean body mass.

Weight-gaining protein powders are not a quick fix on their own. However, if you’ve always struggled to put on weight through diet and exercise, protein powders for weight gain, when combined with a healthy diet and strength training or other exercise program, can provide the edge.

A combination of Protein and Carbohydrates deigned to make sure the protein is used to build muscle and not used as energy. The Humble Mass gainer has changed from yesteryear where low quality protein like milk solids and even lower carbohydrate sources like sugar where used to create a cheap and nasty Weight Gainer or should I say Fat Gainer.

Today you can still buy the cheap and nasty but you can also purchase quality gainers with WPI, WPC, low GI carbs, MCT OIL, Free from amino acids, vitamins and minerals and other high quality ingredients. The Reason is that most people understand that carbs are not from the devil and they are required to use protein to build muscle especially when consumed directly after training.

After intense exercise the body is concerned with replacing glycogen, not repairing broken muscle fibres. If the body only has protein to use (say from a WPI) it will convert the protein into glycogen in the liver through a process called glyconeogenesis. Basically your expensive protein is wasted. The body require carbs to replenish glycogen and then amino acids to repair muscle after training – don’t short change yourself – get some carbs, even when dieting.

So, Weight gainers or Mass gain powders are designed NOT just for super lean guys but anyone looking to build LEAN mass. Most people have the wrong idea about Mass gainers as often it is thought that the powder itself can cause excess body fat to cling to the waste line – not true.

A good quality mass gainer can differ from person to person so it’s important to understand what ratio of nutrients you need to obtain your goal. You can go for something simple with just protein and carbs or get the whole box and dice with creatine, amino acids, healthy fats etc
