By Nader Qudimat / Oct 27, 2015 Review of: Animal Mass Purpose: Mass gainer, packed with "clean" calories and macros for bulking up Effectiveness Pure and simple, this is a weight gainer. Nothing more and nothing less. Ingredients Variety of slow and fast protein / carbohydrates. Contains healthy fats and digestive enzymes. Price Very reasonable. You get high quality macros and "clean" calories without the fillers. Availability Easy to find. New but available at major retailers. We Like Mix of slow and fast protein/carbohydrates Blends containing variety of ingredients that has you covered with all the basics. No amino spiking, you get 60 full grams of protein. Easy on the stomach, no digestion issues We Don't Like Limited flavors Not for lactose sensitive / intolerant Summary: This pure and simple weight gainer isn't innovative but yet it's almost groundbreaking since it covers the fundamentals of nutrition. Amino spiking is common especially among weight gainers but this is a straight up, no bullshit weight gainer that has got you covered on all fronts. If you want a weight gainer that isn't all sugar and fillers then this is perfect for you. Check It Out This just got real...I'm sure you're sick of these protein powders.Mass gainers are supposed to help you put on weight with quality calories. But most mass gainers are just plain useless. They do help put on weight but 99.9% of that weight will be fat. And most weight gainers spike up their protein calculation count with amino acids (you'll find out more below).Is Animal Mass The Solution To The Common Problematic Weight Gainer?It’s been released just recently and being a company that treats its customers like family, it would break our muscled up hearts to see this fail. Universal Nutrition has been in the supplement industry for a super LONG time. They’ve gained the reputation of being simple, trustworthy and are basically the grandmasters of supplements that help consumers bring out the beast from within. Just this year (2015), they released this weight gainer; Animal Mass. First came Animal Whey, which was widely anticipated for and with no surprise it’s made a huge hit with the flavors and profiles. Now with their latest weight gainer, it’s making us wonder if it’s going to set the industry standards for its category. Let’s get down to business, cut through the crap and find out what the fuss is all about… What Makes Animal Mass Special? Mass gainers aim to do one thing; increase your muscle mass with quality calories. But this is where most gainers fail as they are usually filled with “dirty” calories and you just end up gaining more fat and getting more lazy than anything else. Animal Mass has done it differently. They make it easy to get those “clean” calories by offering a high quality weight gainer that uses healthy ingredients and has amazing flavoring.

This is what you get for every serving: Calories: 648 (72 from fat) Protein: 60g (Blend of 6 types of protein) Carbohydrates: 84g (5g of fiber and 8g of sugar) Fat: 8g (4g saturated fat) Common Protein Label Lies For the first time in a while we’ve been dealt with a weight gainer that doesn’t lie about the amount of protein you actually get. Protein powders in general are known to amino spike their protein. Amino spiking is basically taking amino’s like glutamine, taurine, glycine, and even creatine is used towards the total protein count. You won’t know how much protein you’re actually getting. You’ll be paying for protein you’re not even getting. Gaspari Nutrition has been caught doing this with Myofusion but soon changed and fixed their “error”. You can read more about the Gaspari Amino Spiking story here. Universial Nutriton has taken part of the “no-spiking” trend, thankfully, and has provided a weight gainer that truly lives up to its claims. Animal Mass Ingredients & BlendsIf you want to gain mass, you’re going to need to train and eat like an animal. It’s tough if you’re trying to get all of those calories and macros from foods, let alone avoiding unhealthy foods just to get the daily calorie count up. So Animal Mass is here to save you from the 99 problems that mass-chasers face...Animal Mass Blends: Animal Mass Carb & Fiber Band Animal Mass Protein BlendAnimal Mass EFA & Digestive Enzyme Blend Animal Mass Carb & Fiber BlendThis is where Animal Mass starts to look like a worthy weight gainer. Using a combination of maltodextrin, inulin, waxy maize and oat fiber, you’ll be provided with a slow release carbohydrate blend that will not send you crashing after consuming. These ingredients are not new except for one; inulin. Made out of fructose polymers, inulin is found in plants. Inulin benefits include: Leaves insulin levels unaffectedDoesn't cause blood glucose to spikeStimulates growth of healthy bacteria in the gut Sounds pretty awesome. Seeing how this blend of carbohydrates are not going to spike up your insulin levels or send your energy levels down to zero, you can expect some long lasting energy as well as having a nice steady flow glycogen during your workouts.Protein BlendThe protein used in Animal mass isn’t special but again, you know you’re getting the full 60 grams of protein per serving as it isn’t spiked with amino acids. The protein blend features this blend in the following order: Ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate Cross flow micro filtered whey protein isolateHydrolyzed whey proteinMilk protein concentrateMicellar caseinInstant egg albumin The variety of slow and fast digesting protein, you’ll no doubt be feeding your muscles for nothing but growth and recovery. You’ll constantly be in a state of anabolic-awesomeness and you won’t have to worry about being in a catabolic state after having a shake from Animal Mass. This blend is perfect for you if you consider yourself as a “hardgainer” or as someone who just wants the convenience of high quality protein (and calories) in a quick shake. If you’re lactose sensitive or intolerant, you’ll want to avoid this weight gainer unfortunately. It uses concentrate as the first ingredient (most mass gainers would).

Check It Out EFA & Digestive Enzyme BlendLast but not least, a mass gainer wouldn’t be the same without a blend that features healthy fats and essential fatty acids. This blend has 8 grams of healthy fats which is supplied from essential fatty acids. It has MCT Powder, sunflower oil powder, and flaxseed powder which ensures you’re getting a well-rounded nutritional mass shake. But no matter how beneficial a protein powder may seem, it just isn’t complete without something to help your body digest without having a hard time. Animal has you covered here too because it includes 2 enyzmes, papain and bromelain, which will help break down all the complex ingredients in this gainer. Forget GI distress with this weight gainer. And if you’ve used protein powders before, you’ll know there’s generally some kind of distress with digestion. Other IngredientsThis is where most weight gainers fail terribly as something like sugar is used to fill up the servings as well as ingredients that are just going to make you feel sick after consuming. They just don’t make you feel good. Animal Mass though uses a couple of ingredients: Natural and artificial chocolate and vanilla flavors Lecithin Xanthan and cellulose gum Carrageenan Acesulfame potassium (Ace-K) Sucralose FlavorsAfter learning all the Animal-like epic-ness from this weight gainer, what’s it taste like? There’s 3 flavors that are currently available: Chocolate Vanilla Cookies & Cream You can get a 2-serving trial size of Animal Mass or you can just start eating like an Animal with the 5 pound or 10 pound bag. ConclusionIf there’s one protein-based product I would recommend, it would definitely be something from Universal and probably one that has “Animal” in the name. Universal has been in the industry for so long that they know how to look at the big picture. Animal Mass isn’t a trend, it’s going to be one of the best examples of a weight gainer. As with most products from Universal Nutrition, nothing is new or extraordinary in Animal Mass; it’s a plain weight gainer that features high quality ingredients and they didn’t try to spike up the protein calculation with amino acids. It’s simple and it’s a great way to send your macros and calories all the way up without worrying about your well-being and health. Whether you’re a skinny guy, ectomorph, hardgainer, (or whatever you label yourself as) if you want to gain mass, I recommend using Animal Mass. If you just want a protein powder and you’re looking at protein powders that have 30 grams of protein of serving, then you may as well as get Animal Mass and just take half the serving (you’ll get 30 grams of protein plus the other goods). It isn’t only about how much protein you’re getting, you need the other ingredients that are included in this product to fully benefit from your hard training. Animal mass has you covered on all fronts and backs and sides.
