» Weight Gain Protein Supplements
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
