- The Monster Mass Gainer can be rated as a moderately effective product
- It leads to gain, but with more fat content, your fat gains would surpass your lean muscle gains
- With a good mix of enzymes, this product is very easy to digest. The enzymes also ensure that the proteins are broken into free-form amino acids and small peptide chains and delivered to your muscles. This, in turn, ensures maximum uptake and absorption.
As evident by its name, a mass gainer is specially created to increase weight and enhance muscle growth. How does this happen? The added weight is a result of fat conversion into muscles. Differentiating between weight and mass gainers -- this was the principle which formed the basis of our product under review -- The Monster Mass Gainer.
An impressive offering from the range of Cytosport is the Monster Mass Gainer. With a solid product profile, Cytosport is a name to look out for by fitness freaks. Although Monster Mass has a slightly off-put carb to protein ratio and a high quantity of fat, it has its own list of benefits.
Monster Gainer comes with a carb to protein ratio of approximately 1.3 to 1. Although this is good, it could have been better with a higher quantity of carbs per serving.
It offers 630 calories in every serving, which might not be considered healthy by many out there. 630 is a bit higher than the standard recommended level of 600. With 125 mg of cholesterol in each serving, the cholesterol composition is fairly good, not exceptional. With 7 grams of sugar per serving, sugar content is minimal. However, it contains a 18 grams of fat in every serving, which is somewhat a major downside. As a result, Monster Mass gets pushed towards the unhealthier side and a little lower on the ranking table.
Protein: The protein profile comprises a mix of various types of protein -- namely whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, calcium caseinate, milk protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, and micellar casein. Whey protein -- which comprises amino acids, quickly get absorbed into your body. They infuse specific regions that are essential for fat loss, muscle gain, and muscle strength. Therefore, Monster Mass balances your amino acids, helps in ensuring gains in strength and muscle, and results in proportional growth of your body.
However a downside is -- this is again an impure protein mix -- since whey protein isolate and hydrolysate is considered the purest form of protein.
Carbohydrates: The carbohydrate content is derived from maltodextrin and waxy maize starch. The former, after training, causes insulin spike -- that in turn leads to breaking of nutrients by your muscles, thus resulting in growth. It leads to increased nutrient production, cuts down fat content of the product, and helps in muscle recovery.
Lean lipids: The combination of calorically dense sunflower and safflower oil, medium chain triglycerides, canola oil and conjugated linolenic acid -- is an excellent source of energy for muscle growth.
