Mega Gainer Overview
Weight Gainer shakes have been undergoing a rapid evolution in the past few years. Until recently most weight gainers were little more than glorified protein powders with a doubled or tripled serving size, when you got right down to it. A typical gainer was just a whey protein base, with massive amounts of maltodextrin carbs, sometimes modest amounts of vitamins, then the serving size was increased as high as the brand dared, to get the protein, carb and calorie numbers up high enough to compete with the next brand's gainer. Some of these products ended up a serving size that's close to a pound of powder per shake. A product like that might help you gain weight in general, but if it's lean body mass increases your after, you can do better, and you should.
Fast forward to 2009, and it's well known that you need a lot more than just protein, carbs and sheer calories to build quality mass. Now, sure, you do need the right ratio of protein to carbs to calories, but if you're not also taking advantage of super-nutrients like creatine, BCAA's and glutamine, you're walking away from potential and leaving results on the table.
Dymatize High Protein Mega Gainer is one of the newer generation weight gainers and a big improvement over older formulas. No ridiculous serving size, no over the top carb count but all the right mass-builders like creatine, BCAAs and glutamine. Although weight gainers have been a stagnant segment of the protein powder market, High Protein Mega Gainer is seeing lots of repeat orders from apparently very well-satisfied customers. Add a tub to your cart and bring your gains into the 21st century, too.
