 Balance Original Mass Gainer Product Information

 

  • Heavy Duty Protein Stack 
  • Maximise Muscle Mass
  • Fuel Training and Strength
  • Loaded with Essential Amino Acids
  • Digestive Enzymes for Superior Absorption

 

Balance Original Mass Gainer is an all-natural blend of quality carbohydrates and protein, containing a low fat content, that can be added to milk or water. It comes in two mouth-watering flavours that will ensure that you never want to miss a shake. Calories and adequate quality protein are both essential components of any mass gains program. We can train all we want, yet without enough calories and essential amino acids coming in, our muscle gaining efforts will largely be in vein. It is of course possible, however, to gain muscle on a low energy intake, given that protein intake is sufficient, though this is difficult, and energy and motivation to train hard is usually lacking. Research shows that losing weight and gaining muscle, though possible at the same time, is difficult, and goals of no more than 0.7% body weight reduction per week should be targeted1. When calories are plentiful, it is much easier to gain strength and muscle mass. 

 

What sets Balance Original Mass Gainer apart from other mass gainers is the fact that it is 100% natural, containing no artificial sweeteners, flavours or colours. The sweeteners used are Stevia and Thaumatin. This product is designed not only to support an increase in energy to train and grow muscle, but also to support general health in the process. After all, what would be the point of attaining the physique that you desire at the expense of your general health? However, have no fear. Balance—more than your average sports nutrition company—has got you covered. Furthermore, their protein is sourced from New Zealand, a country well known for rich green pastures and healthy grazing cows. This is no doubt reflected in the quality of their milk and protein therein. The two forms of protein found within Balance Original Mass Gainer are whey and casein.

 

So, calories are great for delivering energy and motivation to train, plus supporting the explosive strength required to power through massive sessions. But what do muscles actually need to repair and grow? The answer: essential amino acids. Actually, eight of the nine essential amino acids are found in muscle tissue, as are a host of non-essential amino acids. However, with the bodies impressive ability to recycle non-essential amino acids derived from muscle catabolism (an unstoppable process), we actually only need the essential amino acids in order to lay down new muscle tissue2,3. This has been demonstrated in research for decades now, particularly by leading scientist and amino acid nutrition researcher Dr Robert Wolfe. 

 

Balance Original Mass Gainer is a fantastic formulation for anyone ready to make some serious gains, or supplement their diet due to a high activity level or less-than-adequate food intake.

How Does Protein Benefit Muscle Growth?

Protein is essential for every enzymatic process in the body, they provide structural support, play a role in immune system function and are essential for building muscle. Intense training causes muscle trauma which needs to be repaired and that's where protein comes in.
