Jul 20, 2016 | by: Team A8

Are you tired of taking thick chalky weight gainers? Do you want a product that will fill you up, help you put on size, and tastes amazing? Do you want a weight gainer that won't leave you with fat around your stomach? If you said yes to anyone of those, you will definitely want to try out CytoGainer by CytoSport!

cytogainer mass gainYou probably know by now that CytoGainer tastes awesome, mixes well, and helps you put on lean muscle, but I bet you're wondering how this will help you put on the mass that you want. Let me explain. CytoGainer is something I like to call a “lean gainer”. That means that it’s not loaded with calories, like Mutant Mass or QuickMass. Now, Mutant Mass and QuickMass do have a really good profile but they are definitely a heavier shake. The reason CytoGainer works so well is because it is a nutritionally dense weight gain formula with the main ingredients that will help you gain weight.

In addition, CytoGainers carb source is from CytoSport’s “CytoCarb II” carbohydrate formula which provides you with a complex carbohydrate mixture so you don’t get a super high sugar spike. CytoGainers protein source is from CytoSport’s “Cyto Pro II” which is a mixture of whey protein concentrate, glutamine, and hydrolyzed protein. This is great because you get a fast and super fast protein blend as well as added glutamine for faster muscle tissue recovery.

After the carbs and protein, CytoGainer also has creatine monohydrate which will help you recover and put on muscle and strength, and furthermore CytoGainer also has a vitamin and mineral blend to make sure you have immune support to make sure you recover well! Now let's talk calories...Most weight gainers you see will have around the 1,000 calorie mark. CytoGainer only has 570 calories... Per 4 scoops...

What's the breakdown?

  • 18.75 grams of carbs per scoop, 75 grams of carbs per 4 scoops
  • 13.5 grams of protein per scoop, 54 grams of protein per 4 scoops
  • 1.5 grams of fat per scoop, 6 grams of fat per 4 scoops

As a comparison, in Mutant Mass you would get:

  • 44 grams of carbs per scoop
  • 13 grams of protein per scoop
  • 4.5 grams of fat per scoop

You might be thinking that Mutant Mass is the better buy, but if you look closely at the formula you're getting a more even ratio of protein to carbs in the CytoGainer, but you are not getting too much carb. This way you can focus on building lean muscle and recovering quickly. This is a perfect formula to gain lean muscle and not put on fat.

I recommend doing a half serving (2 scoops) 45mins-1hr pre workout and the same thing immediately after your workout. Oh and did I mention it tastes AMAZING!
