The Super Mass Gainer is a high calorie gainer that is rich in fast carbs. The supplement was developed by the American company Dymatize Nutrition. It is not suitable for athletes with a tendency to thickness, that is, those who quickly gain kilograms. The product is primarily intended for ectomorphs - people who have a lean physique by nature. The main problem of such athletes is that they cannot gain weight even when eating large amounts of food. Along with fast carbohydrates, there are three more varieties with different assimilation rates in the gainer. This allows you to build muscle and strength.

One serving is 334 grams. It contains 1280 calories, of which 8 are fats, 50 are proteins, 252 grams are carbohydrates. In addition, each dosage gives the athlete:
- cholesterol - 70 mg;
- creatine monohydrate - 1 g;
- potassium - 500 mg;
- sodium - 200 mg.
The gainer also has minerals, vitamins, flavors of natural and artificial origin, sweeteners, dyes. Each intake of a sports supplement allows an athlete to get over one thousand calories. The high energy value makes the weight gainer completely unprofitable for weight-gaining athletes, as subcutaneous fat will increase.
How to take Super Mass Gainer
It is recommended to use a complex based on carbohydrates with the addition of protein one serving per day after the completion of the training. On weekends, the manufacturer’s experts advise replacing the additive with one of the meals. To prepare one serving of a carbohydrate-protein shake, 334 grams of powder are diluted with water or non-fat milk (500-650 ml).
Experienced athletes are advised not to follow the recommendations from the manufacturer and will reduce the dosage to 167 grams. This will avoid undue stress on the digestive system. Instead of one dose per day, it is better to drink a cocktail twice, that is, the daily rate should be divided into two. One to use in the afternoon, and another after completion of training. This scheme is most optimal for people with an ectomorphic physique.
To increase the efficiency of gaining a gainer, the product is combined with other additives:
- to suppress catabolic processes and quick recovery with BCAA Complex 5050;
- for increase in indicators of strength and body weight with Creatine Micronized;
- to stimulate enhanced production of growth hormone with Gaba.
The specific choice, as it has already become clear, completely depends on the desired effect.
