BSN’s TRUE-MASS takes on mass gainers with an impressive six sources of protein. This gainer is a little light on the calorie count, though that can be a good thing depending on your specific calorie needs. If you are someone looking to generate more lean muscle growth and less bulk this mix could be just the thing you are looking for. Features of the deliciously aforementioned include the following:
- Gainer with protein.
- 6 separate sources of protein.
- Variety of flavors.
- 700 calories (45g protein, 90g carbs).
- 6 lbs.
This type of mass gainer is ideal for those looking to gain the leanest mass possible. It is packed with all the nutrients you need in order to build mass, just is somewhat smaller quantities. This is good for putting on weight, but not so much weight that you might end up with fat or have your muscles get too bulky. If you are an all-around athlete and not just a bodybuilder this gainer will help you put on the lean muscle definition that would be otherwise harder to achieve. Personally, I think this gainer is best for beginners who are uncertain what their calorie needs will be or those who don’t yet know which protein works best for them.
The Advantages of the ProductThe number one benefit this gainer has to offer is that its low-calorie count will make it easy for your body to get the energy it needs and the nutrients to build muscle without overshooting your goals. Though it may seem a little on the low side the ninety grams of carbs and forty-five grams of protein in each serving is just enough to give you a two-to-one ratio of protein to fuel for energy.
Additionally, it has the highest number of protein sources on this list, so would most benefit those who need a wide variety of protein sources or those who are unsure as to which ones will work best for them.
The Disadvantages of the ProductWhen it comes to the downsides of this gainer there are a few. For one there are a lot of allergens in this gainer, including whey (which is in nearly all of them, so I can’t really judge that too harshly), egg, wheat (for maltodextrin), and soy. Since it contains wheat it also contains gluten, which won’t work for anyone with a sensitivity. Though, of course this won’t be an issue for most people, but it is something you should keep in mind.
Additionally, if you are looking to put on a lot of weight in a short period of time, or have a particularly strenuous workout, this gainer is unlikely to have enough calories for you to reach your goals. Personally, I would say that this gainer is better used by beginners who might not have a set regimen yet or those who are unfamiliar with how many calories they will need every day to reach to body goals they have set for themselves.
