CEL is a no stranger to hardcore products – they’ve been around for a long time and are known for their strong prohormone supplements.
Though they no longer make prohormones, their latest test booster, M-Test is the next best thing.
And since M-Test is discontinued, check out the latest and best test boosters here.
M-Test contains clinical dosages of effective ingredients that'll elevate and maintain testosterone levels.
I’m sure you agree…
When it comes to building muscle naturally, a good test booster is hard to beat.
It’s not hard to see why, since testosterone is one of most anabolic hormones in the body – if you can ramp up your natural test production, you can see some impressive results.
The thing is, many test boosters are pretty much worthless.
You have to dig a little to find one that actually does what it says it will.
Before we dig into the ingredients, it's important to understand this…
A test booster won't increase test production as that's not how it works, you need to increase free or available testosterone.
The way it works is this: of the total amount of testosterone released, about 98% is unavailable, or inactive.
This is because it is bound to plasma proteins, such as SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin).
The test that is not bound is called available, or free test (about 2%).
This is the test that’s active.
This means it can be used for, among other functions, muscle growth (1).
So the key point here is that when you shop for a test booster, you want one that helps maximize free testosterone.
OK, let’s check out the ingredients and see if M-Test measures up.
This is a shrub with a long history of use in traditional African medicine as an aphrodisiac.
The test-boosting ability of fadogia is mainly due to its saponin content.
This increases luteinizing hormone (LH), which is released by the pituitary gland and stimulates production of testosterone.
The research that supports the effectiveness of fadogia has been primarily conducted on animals, such as one study conducted on rats (2).
M-Test uses a 1200 mg dose, which is a moderate dose based on weight.
This may be a little underdosed if you’re over 200lbs.
Divana-Plex is a standardized extract of urtica dioica, which you may know as stinging nettle.
Divana-Plex contains several lignans that bind to SHBG which in turn blocks the SHBG from attaching to its own receptor, this in turn increases free testosterone (3).
As we talked about at the beginning, it’s free, or unbound, testosterone that’s used for muscle growth, while bound testosterone is inactive – Divana-Plex is in M-Test because it helps make the most of free testosterone (4), (5).
M-Test uses the maximum clinical dose.
This ingredient is made by Ixoreal Biomed and is considered to be the most concentrated ashwagandha extract on the market.
This extract is an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body deal with physical and mental stress (6).
Additionally, Ashwagandha has been shown to improve quality of semen by increasing levels of luteinizing hormone (7).
Ashwagandha has also been shown to be anti-catabolic due to the fact that it inhibits the catabolic hormone cortisol.
High levels of this destructive hormone can reduce testosterone production – not a good place to be if you want to build muscle (8).
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.
If 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:
This 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:
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.
Last 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.
After learning all the Animal-like epic-ness from this weight gainer, what’s it taste like? There’s 3 flavors that are currently available:
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.
If 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.
Mass is out of stock, so we recommend these alternatives:

Animal Mass is straight up the truth.
No hype or label tricks, this will be a great choice for years to come.
If you're looking for a mass gainer, you've found it.
