VPA Muscle Mass Gainer:
VPA Muscle Gainer is a mass gainer supplement, which you may have also heard referred to as a weight gainer or bulking powder. Gainers are different to pure protein supplements like whey protein isolate (WPI), whey protein concentration (WPC) in that they combine protein with carbohydrate and fat to provide a high calorie and high protein supplement.
Mass gainers are used by those who find it hard to put on weight and muscle due to not being able to eat enough calories in excess of their daily energy needs. A calorie surplus is needed to build muscle, and a mass gainer protein powder like our Muscle Gainer can help you achieve that.
HOW DOES MASS GAINER WORK?
Mass gainer works to build muscle by delivering a high-quality protein that can be used to repair and build muscle, along with enough energy to fuel the muscle building process. It is superior to WPI or WPC if you are someone who trains hard, but who burns so much energy that you find it difficult to eat enough food to create your own calorie surplus. In addition, the added creatine helps you train harder each session, which will maximise muscle stimulus and encourage growth.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF MASS GAINER?
Mass gainers are not pure protein powders. They are usually a mix of whey protein isolate, or whey protein concentrate, simple carbohydrates, and sometimes fats.
One serve of VPA Muscle Gainer contains 31.9g of high quality protein, 40.5g of carbohydrate, and 2.3g of fat and a total of 239 calories per serve.
The ingredients of VPA Muscle Gainer are:
Whey protein concentrate (WPC) – A pure whey protein sourced from 100% Australian grass-fed cattle. WPC is a high-quality pure whey protein that provides the essential amino acids needed to build and repair muscle maximizing muscle growth.
Dextrose Monohydrate – A rapidly absorbed carbohydrate that helps spike insulin to initiate and maximise muscle growth. The energy provided frees up protein to be used for muscle building, sparing it from being used as an energy source as a result of eating too little.
Maltodextrin – A long-chain carbohydrate that does not have a sweet flavour compared to other simple carbohydrates. It is still quickly digested and absorbed, and like dextrose, it frees up protein to be used for muscle building and not as an emergency energy source as a result of eating too little.
Creatine monohydrate – As one of the most researched and supported sports supplements on the planet, creatine boosts your performance in training, and in doing so it allows you to lift more weight and complete more reps which increase the rate at which you gain muscle.
MASS GAINER VERSUS WPI OR WPC
What is the difference between mass gainer and protein powder? A mass gainer like VPA Muscle Gainer is not a pure protein powder, like either WPC or WPI. High-quality WPI and WPC like our Premium Whey or Whey Isolate deliver the highest protein content possible.
They are pure protein powder except for the tiny amounts of flavour, non-caloric sweetener, and colour needed to make it taste delicious! On the other hand, mass gainers are not pure protein powders. Instead blend protein with carbohydrate, and sometimes fat, to not only provide a full serve of muscle-building protein but a large amount of energy to help the muscle-building process.
SHOULD I TAKE MASS GAINER OR PROTEIN POWDER?
Mass gainers are not for everyone. If you are trying to lose fat mass, then muscle gainer is not for you. Try our WPI or WPC instead. Muscle gainers are ideal for those that train hard but find it hard to put on any weight at all, let alone muscle mass. These types of people are sometimes referred to as “hard gainers”.
WHAT IS THE BEST MASS GAINER PROTEIN POWDER?
Mass gainers can often be poor quality, so always read the nutrition panel. One of the tricks that some companies use when marketing their muscle gainer is to promote the overall nutritional value and overlook the serving size. The best mass gainers should deliver a complete serve of protein in a reasonable serving size. Whey protein isolate or whey protein concentrate should be the first ingredient on the ingredients list as protein is the most important aspect of muscle building. This is what makes VPA Muscle Gainer the best mass gainer protein powder.
WHAT DOES MASS GAINER TASTE LIKE?
The added carbohydrate content of mass gainer makes it more ‘watery’ to taste than pure protein powders, but it mixes well in either water or milk. VPA Muscle Gainer comes in 4 delicious flavours: chocolate, vanilla, banana, iced coffee and salted caramel.
HOW MUCH IS A SERVE OF MASS GAINER?
One serve of VPA Muscle Gainer is a lot bigger than WPC or WPI as this is a blended protein product. One serve of Muscle Gainer is 80g or three scoops. One bag of muscle gainer has 12 serves. The carbohydrate powders in our mass gainer have a tendency to settle over time, so for accuracy, we recommend you weigh each serve of Muscle Gainer using a set of scales to make sure you are not using too much or too little.
